Running out to the grocery store? One sec. Just gotta brush on a little mascara. And pop on a little blush. Oh, and a swipe of lip gloss. Maybe just a dusting of powder. And a touch of eyeliner. OK, ready now!

Sound like you? A new Harris survey finds that almost 50 percent of American women equate a makeup-free face with unattractiveness, UPI reports.

The findings—from the Renfrew Center Foundation, a nonprofit group that treats eating disorders—also show that without makeup, 14 percent of respondents report feeling self-conscious, 14 percent feel naked and 16 percent feel ugly, the news service says.
