10 Best Cosmetic Brands Of The YearMay 31, 2016 shares Facebook Twitter Pinterest TumblrIt’s no secret that we all love to look good. However, I think it is safe to say that this trait affects women more than it does men. For the most part, this trait would fall into the category of vanity which is, for the most part, frowned upon. Regardless, there doesn’t seem to be a single part on our bodies that we wouldn’t beautify if given the opportunity. Some of the more common features targeted include hair, eyes, teeth, and nails.
