It is a rite of passage now: Become a global beauty icon, have your
grooming routine analyzed down to the last cent you spend on pedicures.
Sure, it's a little silly to investigate a celebrity's annual beauty
budget, but so are the pricey treatments they use to stay so flawless.
First there was Jennifer Aniston's alleged $141,037 beauty routine,
which included $450 facials, $920 haircuts, and $900 weekly yoga
Of course, only royalty could top that kind of luxe grooming, right? Actually, Kate Middleton's primping treatments are only (ha, only!) estimated at around $37,728. Her routine includes $250 bee-venom facials and $60 manicures.
Now, "The Daily Mail" has published an estimate for reality TV princess Kim Kardashian, who reportedly spends a whopping $103, 534 a year on looking that good.
Her 24-carat gold facials cost $800 a pop; she also gets $110 tequila
body scrubs and drops $500 on hairstyling sessions to keep those
brunette extensions perfectly coiffed. Then there are her laser
treatments, daily massages, workouts with celebrity trainer Gunner
Peterson, permanent eyelash extensions … we won't bore you with the rest
of the "is-that-really-necessary?" details.
But here's the real question: Which celebrity is going to have their beauty routine broken down next? And more importantly, who do you think racks up the biggest number on her Amex Black Card?
