I’ve seen the ‘How much is my face worth’ tag circling the blogosphere for a little while now, and it’s always one I love to read myself. So today I thought I’d write my own version. I’m basing this post on the makeup I would use if I was going ‘out out’ somewhere for the day, not just nipping down to the corner shop for a pint of milk. Of course, when I do my makeup, I often chop and change the products I use, but for this post I’ll be using the products that I reach for most often.
Stila | One Step Correct Primer > £24.00
Rimmel | Wake Me Up Concealer > £5.49
Benefit | Rockateur Blusher > £23.50
Benefit | Hoola Bronzer > £23.50
The Balm | Mary Lou Manizer > £17.50
L’Oréal Paris | Infallible 24H Matte Powder > £4.99
Benefit | Stay Don’t Stray Primer > £20.50
MAC | Lipstick in ‘Mehr’ > £15.50
I thought that the amount was going to be fairly high, but not that much – over £215 – I’m genuinely quite shocked! For this post, I only included using 3 individual Makeup Geek shadows too, but if I was doing a full on eye look, I would most likely use a lot more! Also, if I was going ‘out out’ for the night, there would be further products used that I didn’t feature here, so it would be even higher!
Although the price of my daily face would be nothing compared to some people, when compared to others I think it’s pretty high! I feel a little bit naughty, but at the same time makeup is ‘my thing’. Some people spend their money on expensive shoes, or handbags, but this is what I choose to treat myself to and I love it, so that’s all that matters – right..?!
If you’ve written this tag post yourself, it would be great if you could leave a link in the comments, so I can check it out too!
How much would you guesstimate your daily face is worth? What do you think about the products I use on a regular basis, are there any of your favourites here too? I’d love to have a read of your thoughts in the comments, and as always, thank you so much for reading!
