The title of this post runs the risk of immediately provoking several sarcastic responses, but stay with me – it’s not as self-indulgent as you might think.
Makeup is something we near enough all use, and buying the various products comes as second nature – but unless you’re having a blowout beauty splurge, do you know how much your day-to-day face actually costs?
Now, I rarely make that much of an effort, but when I have to leave my bed and actually see people I opt for a minimalist approach:
So how much does my everyday, minimalist face cost? £129.70 – yep, that’s right over one hundred pounds. Pounds, not pence, not Euros, pounds.
And this isn’t even noticeable, fancy night out makeup. This is bog-standard, I have to look like I care about my appearance makeup…
Let’s break it down:
Simple Light Moisturiser – £1.20
MAC Studio Fix Liquid Foundation – £21.50
MAC Select Cover Up – £15.50
MAC Mineralise SkinFinish (Medium) – £23
MAC Mineralise SkinFinish (Medium Deep) – £23
HD Brows Brow Palette – £25
Avon Glimmerstick Eyeliner – £6
Avon SuperShock Mascara – £8.50
Avon Blusher – £6
I couldn’t even bring myself to include the brushes and tools that are used for fear of taking the total past £150…
Who knew beauty could be so expensive?!
