How Much Is My Face Worth?

I have seen this idea floating around for a while now and so I thought I would give it a go. Saying that, I change my makeup every single time I do it so this post is just an average price really but never the less I hope you enjoy it.


A primer I have fallen back in love with recently, the Nivea Men Post Shave Balm (£5.29) gives my skin a beautiful glow while giving my skin some hydration which it has been lacking in recently. For a primer, this is also super affordable and out of the high end primers I have tried, I don't like them as much as I like this one. I am pretty sure that you can all guess which foundation is my favourite and go-to. The L'Oreal True Match Foundation (£9.99) has always been my favourite, it gives me great coverage while giving my skin a natural finish, plus the colour matches my skin perfectly. I tend to switch up my concealer daily but one I have been going back to is the LA Girl Pro Conceal Concealer (£5) which gives great coverage while highlighting my face. To prevent creasing I will set it with a loose powder, the LA Girl Pro Powder (£6.00) has been a favourite recently because I love it to set my under eyes just as much I love it to set my whole face. This powder makes my makeup look super airbrushes but not flat which I am liking a lot. For bronzer I have currently been trying this one out, it is the Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Dark (£24) which is suppose to be a face powder but since I got it in a shade darker than my skin tone, I can bronze with it. This adds a very natural colour to my skin and it blends like a dream. I have not got a final verdict on it yet but so far it is pretty positive. Contouring is optional to me depending on how intense I want my makeup to be, but even on subtle days, I have been enjoying a more sculpted look. My favourite contouring powder will always be the Anastasia Beverly Hills Fawn Powder (£14), it is the perfect colour for creating a shadow while the powder being beautiful to apply and blend. A favourite blush of mine, the Kiko Provocative Pink Blush (£6.32) is amazing because it is matte and a great colour. It looks super natural on the skin and blends great, but I made the mistake of featuring this in this post because it was limited edition and now unavailable so the price is a little not so accurate but we are just going to forget about that. My highlighter of choice is also a little predictable The Balm Mary Loo Manizer Highlighter (£20) is a cult product in my makeup routine. It is a great pale gold shade that makes you glow like there is no tomorrow.
Depending on how intense my makeup is that day, will depend on what I fill in my eyebrows with, but at the moment the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade (£15) has been my favourite to use recently. It is very pigmented and gives me a bolder brow which I find really helps shape my face. I am no expert at applying the pomade though so I have to carve it out with some concealer, my favourite is the Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer (£5.49)it is super easy to apply and it blends brilliantly, I also double up with this as an eye primer also. It can be a little heavy but once I have set it, the eye shadows on top blend just fine. Again, my eye shadow and choice of palette change on the daily so choosing one to feature in this post was difficult. One I have been using a lot lately though is the classic Morphe 35O Eye Shadow Palette (£23.50), it comes with a great range on shades and you can create endless looks with just this one palette. To finish off the whole eye look, I have to use my all time favourite mascara, the Maybelline Colossal Go Extreme Waterprof Mascara (£6.99), will always be my one and only, it adds length, volume, lasts all day while being super black. It is drugstore which is just a bonus but maybe one day I will find a mascara that I love just as much as this one.
I love changing up my lip combos even though they all end up look the same, but a lip liner that I always go back to is the MUA Caramel Nougat Lip Liner (£1), it matches almost every single one of my lipsticks and it is so super creamy and easy to apply. I cannot believe that it is only £1, I cannot recommend it enough. I have many combinations to pair with this lip liner like I said earlier but a new product I love with this liner is the Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in Child Star (£19). I never really understood the whole matte liquid lipstick phase but this formula and colour is to die for, it is also all I have been wearing at the moment. Depending on my mood, I might add a gloss but I just chose not to feature on in today's post just because I have been preferring the matter finish lately.

The moment of truth, the total of all of those products is £161.58 which I am not too surprised by. Obviously this is an average but because I use a range of high end and drugstore products I expected it to be around the £150 price point. I do think that it is a lot of money especially for just makeup but I use and love it all so I hope you liked this style of post and found it kind of interesting.

How much do you think your daily makeup costs?
