How Much Is My Face Worth?


A couple of days ago one of my favourite bloggers, Chapters Of Kat, wrote a blog post about how much her face is worth. If you don't know what this is, its basically looking at all the makeup you wear on a daily basis and adding it all up to see how much of your hard earned cash you've been spending at the makeup counter! Intrigued by Kat's post, I've decided to do my own How Much Is My Face Worth Tag. I'm also super busy this week with my final week of film school for the year and my dance show coming up this weekend! So this is a short and sweet blog post this week!

Now one thing about me is that I actually don't like spending money that much (I still end up doing it though!) I'm always reconsidering if I really need anything that is over £10, so I expected my total to be pretty modest. The results? Well you'll just have to read and find out!


ROUND 1: THE FACE




I expected this to be the most expensive round as foundation usually costs quite a lot, but my love for Nyx shows in this section which is probably what has saved me the most money!

Nyx Stay Matte But Not Flat Foundation: £6
Rimmel Match Perfection Illuminating Concealer: £5.99
Nyx Cream Highlight and Contour Palette In Light: £12
Nyx Illuminator in Ritualistic: £8.50

Total: 32.49 - pretty good!

ROUND 2: THE EYES & BROWS





I know this is going to be more expensive because I use more high end products here. I have included the naked palette because I usually wear this on the days I don't have to rush to get out, otherwise I use the Anastasia palette. Please excuse how battered my Anastasia palette is! It's just well loved.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Express Kit For Brows & Eyes: £29
Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette: £38
Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Liner: £5.29
Nyx Lush Lashes XXL Mascara: £6.50

Total: £78.79 (ouch!)

ROUND 3: THE LIPS



This is going to be the cheapest round as I only wear one thing! I would have liked it to be the Kylie Lip Kit but that's obviously not meant to be and actually this Nyx lipstick is amazing!

Nyx Lip Suede Lipstick in Soft Spoken: £6.50

Total: £6.50


BONUS ROUND: THE TOOLS




Adding this round in as not many people do (maybe you're not supposed to idk). This is going to be the most expensive round because of the Zoeva brushes but luckily I won them in a competition so I didn't actually have to spend any money! (yay, free stuff!) This obviously isn't all the brushes I use, these were just the ones in my makeup bag at the time haha! Also this photo has just reminded me how much I need to clean my brushes!

Zoeva Rose Gold 8 Piece Brush Set: £65
Real Techniques Limited Edition 5 Piece Brush Set: £21.35
Real Techniques Beauty Blender: £5.99

Total: £92.34!!!


THE RESULTS:


Including the bonus round: £203.62

Not including bonus round: £111.28

Well there you have it! I'm actually quite shocked with how much money I have spent on my makeup, I was expecting it to be a lot less! It just goes to show how you  don't notice when you spend £25 here, another £10 there...but it all adds up!

I hope you enjoyed this post! I'd love to know your results so leave me a comment below telling me how much your face is worth or send me the link to your blog if you decide to do your own version of this post!

See you soon,

Beth x
