Hey guys 🙂
In all honesty, i’m actually pretty scared to write this post. I definitely have the mindset that ignorance is bliss in terms of how much money I spend on makeup; but a little tinge of curiosity has encouraged me to find out how much money I spend on my face every day…
Basically, I am going to add up the price of all of the makeup I use whenever I do my ‘Go-To’ makeup look, and see how much money I am spending on my makeup.
I am currently on a no-makeup ban after my splurge in the USA, so this may help me realise what makeup products I can find cheaper alternatives for in order to save money.
Primer: Elf ‘Hydrating Face Primer’ £4.64
Foundation: Nars ‘Sheer Glow Foundation’ £31
Concealer: Urban Decay ‘Naked Weightless Skin’ £17.50
Powder: Elf ‘High Definition Under Eye Setting Powder’ £2.32 for setting concealer, and Kiko ‘Colour Correcting Powder’ £13.90 for the rest of my face
Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Dipbrow Pomade’ £15 and Benefit ‘Gimme Brow’ £18.50
Eye Shadow Primer: MAC ‘Pro-Longwear Paint Pot’ in ‘Soft Ochre’ £16
Eye Shadows: I tend to use about three eye shadow palettes the most; I usually use a combination of shades from all of them. This is not because they are not versatile enough, but I just like switching up my looks.
- Too Faced ‘Chocolate Bar Palette’ £39
- Too Faced ‘Sweet Peach Palette’ £39
- Anastasia Beverly Hills eye shadows in ‘Sienna’, ‘Penny Metal’, ‘Pink Champagne’ and ‘Truffle Glitter’ (These were on offer for £30.96 for four in an empty palette).
Eye Liner: NYX Gel Eyeliner in ‘Black’ £7.50
Mascara: L’Oreal ‘Telescopic’ in ‘Blackest Black’ £10.99
Bronzer: Too Faced ‘Sweethearts Bronzer’ in ‘Sweet Tea’ £25
Contour: Too Faced ‘Chocolate Soleil Bronzer’ (full size – £25)
Highlighter: Becca X Jaclyn Hill ‘Champagne Pop’ £32
Lip Liner: MAC ‘Spice’ £13
Lipstick: Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Liquid Lipstick’ in ‘Dusty Rose’ £15.48
The Grand Total: £356.79
Well, that’s a bit more than I was expecting now I have added it all up! Think I will be shopping around for some cheaper dupes now… If any of you have any ideas could you please let me know?
Thanks for reading 🙂
