How Much Is My Face Worth?

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.

Maybelline | Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara > £4.99

Illamasqua | Brow Gel > £18.50

Makeup Geek | Individual Eyeshadow Pans > £4.95 Each (x3) | (REVIEW & SWATCHES)
Maybelline | Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow > £4.99 | (REVIEW & SWATCHES)

MAC | Lipstick in ‘Mehr’ > £15.50

TOTAL: £215.81

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!

    I love the idea of this post, I’d be so interested (maybe a bit worried) to see how much all of the make up I use on a daily basis adds up to. I absolutely love the Vichy Dermablend foundation as well, it’s my every day go to!

    These posts are so interesting, but they always make me cringe because I know my face is probably just as expensive!
