Mixing Things Up with Makeup Bingo

An elegant remedy for makeup ruts

There’s just no getting around the simple fact that the vast majority of women in the world will never leave the house without makeup on. In a comprehensive survey authorized by well-known Harley Street beauty clinic Specialist Makeup Services, the average British woman will spend around 474 days of her life putting on cosmetics. This further breaks down into three hours and 19 minutes of applying makeup every week. The same survey also revealed that most British women take up to 17 minutes just preparing the eye area. Thankfully, a woman’s makeup routine doesn’t have to be so time-consuming all the time.

Makeup Bingo is a clever variation of Wardrobe Bingo, which is widely hailed as a fantastic solution for getting over style ruts and fashion funks. Instead of clothes, Makeup Bingo players must gather five items from categories such as foundation, lipstick, blush, and eyeliner/mascara/eye shadow. Much like Wardrobe Bingo, the entire point of Makeup Bingo is to occasionally shake things up a bit and maybe discover some surprising combinations. Simply put, it’s supposed to be a fun diversion. This same concept of fun can also be seen in modern-day TV ads from online bingo companies. Leading UK portal, CheekyBingo has even collaborated with the Frontroom creative agency to help the brand stand out through catchy TV ads for their fashion-centric promos and giveaways. Moreover, the same online bingo brand recently gave away £50 shopping vouchers through its Twitter account to lure in the female demographic. They also welcome pictures from their Twitter followers whenever there are celebrity fashion gatherings or followers have engaged in games of Makeup Bingo. The brand, retweets there followers submissions on a daily basis, and sometimes give out prizes for the most lubricious Makeup Bingo pictures.

So if you want to enjoy the game, on the whole, the rules of Makeup Bingo are pretty simple. After assembling all the makeup items from each category, label each item from 1 to 5 (or B-I-N-G-O, if you prefer). Players will then draw numbers (or letters) at random to eventually come up with some startling mashups. All told, Makeup Bingo allows players to look at their cosmetics in a different light.
