Everyday Make-Up; What's My Face Worth?!


Roughly around a year ago, when I first start blogging - I had absolutely no clue what so ever into make-up. But now thanks to all the beauty bloggers influence from pretty pictures to raving reviews, my collection has grown and improved vastly. 

So I decided it was time to update my 'Whats My Face Worth?' and see how much the price differs. You can check out lasts years by clicking here, the total cost being £81.21

Lets take a look at what products I use now:

Apologies for the poor photography skills, I was feeling a bit lazy last night and the lighting was poor!

The result:

Now lets work out the cost:

No 7 Colour Calming Green Primer - £10.50
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation - £29.50
No 7 Beautifully Matte Foundation - £13.50
Soap & Glory Archery Brow Duo - £8
Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette - £37
L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara - £10.99
Benefit BADgal Lash Mascara - £17.50
MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara - £14.50
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - £19
Rimmel Scandel Eyes Kohl Eyeliner - £3.99
Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder - £15
Body Shop Honey Bronzer - £13
Benefit Blush Palette - £29.50
MAC Soft & Gentle Highlighter - £23
Boots Soltan Moisturising Suncare Stick (Lip stuff) - £3.99
No 7 High Shine Intense Lip Crayon - £9

Drumroll please.. The total cost is £257.97

Whattt?! How crazy is that!! I am actually shocked it costs this much. Baring in mind that does not even include my skincare routine that I use daily too. Such a BIG difference to last year - actually a £176.76 difference!

I tend to use blush and eyeshadow palettes because I can mix it up each day for a bit of variety. Right, so 4 mascara's isn't necessary and does add up a bit but I am very fussy when it comes to my lashes - I can't stand gaps! Sometimes I also use my MAC lipsticks of course as they are a beauty - Plumful being my favourite :) I actually found using the No7 foundation works better as a concealer around my t-zone to keep my oiliness away for the day!

It seems like quite a lot for just everyday make-up, I do realise that but I have very bad skin so I need complete full coverage on my base. Then as for my eyebrows and lashes, they are complete blonde naturally so take a lot of work to not look odd!

How much do you reckon your daily make-up is worth?! Dare you to add it up ;)

Love, Gemma xo
