The Influence of Celebrities in the World of Beauty

The effect that celebrities have in the beauty industry is undeniable. Everybody wants to know the products that celebrities use from head to toe. Any product that a celebrity endorses immediately becomes a bestseller. In fact, many celebrities understand their level of influence and are cashing in on it. Instead of promoting other people’s products, many start their own product lines and make millions every year. For instance, Kylie Jenner makes £16.5 million every year from her lipstick line. Social media has made it easy for fans to stay updated on every move that a celebrity makes. Consequently, any beauty or health regime that a celebrity shares is replicated in millions of homes around the world.

The Cost of Beauty in the UK

A report published in Flux magazine that was conducted by My Voucher Codes estimated the amount that people in the UK spend on beauty. According to the article, about £284 million goes to beauty products in the UK. The high cost may be linked to the amount celebrities spend on their beauty regimes. The article outlines that Kim Kardashian spends £2,300 on beauty and skincare products while her sister Kylie spends £2,800. The two celebrities have more than 177 million followers on Instagram. It is possible that thousands of women spend an equal amount or even more in efforts to look like the celebrities.

People in the UK are not only spending a huge amount of money on beauty products alone. According to the article, a significant amount goes to beauty treatments and hairdressing. For instance, people are willing to spend £37 on hair colour and £16 on hair removal.

The Cost of Popular Cosmetic Procedures

You now have an idea of the amount you will spend on beauty products to look like Kim Kardashian. If you want to go a step further and tattoo your eyebrows, you will spend £350- £650. A simple procedure like lash extension costs £60 – £200. You will have fuller eyelashes but the procedure is costly. You can get a fuller face and eliminate all the lines and wrinkles with dermal injectable fillers. One syringe costs about £400, which may be insufficient depending on the condition of your skin. The cost of exfoliating your skin is estimated at £65- £165 per treatment section.


You can tell from the data outlined in this article that looking like your idol will cost you thousands of pounds every year. The data also indicates that the cost of beauty products and treatments in the UK is likely to rise further in the future. You may want to adapt an affordable beauty regime if you cannot keep up with your idol.

Celebrity Life: What The Most Profitable Careers Are!

It’s no secret that celebrities, from A-listers to the likes of the Kardashians, earn a LOT of money. The rise of social media has meant that what we used to define as celebrities – movie stars and singers, has changed significantly. Look at Justin Bieber; he was no one until he was spotted on YouTube and since then has ridden to an insane level of fame. What about Zoella, beauty blogger turned celebrity? She was just like you and me, and now she’s a multimillionaire. It’s clear that you can make a lot of money if you find fame (or fame finds you), but the question is, what’s the most profitable career to have?

The classic career for a celebrity is, of course, singing. The amount that you can earn from being a singer depends on a range of factors, from how good you are to where you’re based. Take Rhi-Rhi for example, last year she earned a whopping £75 million. However, that’s simply because of what a world-class star she is – other less well-known singers earn a lot less than that. From 200,000 to 10 million, most singers earn something within this price range. She’s known all over the world, hence why she earned so much in one year.

TV show host

You might not think of TV show hosts as earning a lot of money but last year, Ellen DeGeneres earned a whopping $75 million. Admittedly, Ellen is one of a kind, as is her talk show. However, it just goes to show that any career path can pay big, it just depends on who you are and what you have to offer. In comparison to Oprah Winfrey’s annual earnings of between 100 and 125 million each year, Ellen’s earnings look like nothing.

Blogger or Vlogger

The newest type of celebrity is the blogger or vlogger celebrity. These are people who’ve become famous for sharing their views about products of events online. Bloggers like Arianna Huffington, the owner of Huffington Post, makes a monthly income of $2,330,000 from her site. While Perez Hilton, the celebrity blogger, makes $450,000 a month, which equates to over five million a year from his site alone. Simply for posting content and videos, he’s earning millions.

Sports star

Sports stars do, of course, earn a fantastically high income. The amount that they make depends on a range of factors, including who they are and what sport they play. One of the highest earners in the professional sports industry is basketball legend, LeBron James. He earns, on average, $77 million a year. Of course, sports stars can earn anything from $100,000 a year to millions. It’s a case of how skilled and popular with the masses they are.

When it comes to celebrities and what they’re earning, it’s not a case of a certain role allowing them to earn more. The amount that a celebrity earns, tends to be down to how well known they are, as well as what they do. Look at the Kardashians, they don’t have any particular skill, and they earn millions.
