How Much is My Face Worth? Quick Everyday Makeup Look

Makeup products on top a fluffy blanket

Hello, greetings, how are you doing today?  

I thought I will do something fun and see how much my 'everyday face' costs. Let's face it (AHH LOVE ACCIDENTAL PUNS), I don't wear makeup that often. Most of the time, I don't have time for it - I'm either rushing to work or to university.  Creating makeup looks is so much fun, it lets you to express yourself, enhance your features. On the day that I was putting this look that I'm about to show you, I had a driving lesson, went into town to do some errands and had a lovely red velvet cake with my friend. But enough rambling, let's do this! 


While I didn't get the chance to take photographs of the things I have used to apply makeup on my face - I will still mention it. It was:
1. FINGERS! (Grand total of £0)

So it's me with nothing on my face. I have already cleansed, exfoliated, moisturised. I won't include skincare into the overall price of my face, but if you would like a skincare routine, let me know. My skincare is quite basic anyway :) 


Sometimes I wear foundation, sometimes I don't. On this day, I thought meh, concealer will do. So the first step in making myself look half-decent was applying concealer all over my face like so:

The concealer that I used was Naked Concealer by Urban Decay (£19.50) . I have mentioned about this concealer in my July Favourites post. It's still going strong! The only thing I'd say, I'm having problems with makeup creasing on my nose. It drives me mad! I tend to avoid putting lots and lots of product on my nose, because flaking look is not attractive. Not blaming this concealer though! 

I usually apply my concealer with a Real Techniques Blender, but this time I used my fingers because I couldn't be bothered to wash my sponge.

The next thing was, setting this concealer in place. I used the good old Stay Matte powder by Rimmel (£3.99). Then I went with some bronzer to warm up my moon face. The bronzer I used was the L'Oreal Paris Back To Bronze Bronzing Powder (£8.99) . I love this bronzer because it's matte and buildable. 

After this, I put on a bit of blush -  Crush on Blush Powder Blush by CYO in the shade Strong Words (£4.00). Last but not least, was highlighter. My favourite highlighter palette that I own is the Revolution Soph X Highlighter Palette (£8.00). Eight blinding highlighter shades for £8 - that's a bargain!. I dabbed a bit of the second shade from the top row with my fingers. I was going for a subtle look ;) 


Here comes filling gaps in brows. I used so many eyebrow products, one of my favourites is the Micro Brow Pencil from NYX. Alas, I used it all up! 

So, as an alternative I applied the shade Rosewood from Revolution Soph X Eyeshadow Palette (£10) with an angled brush. It's not as neat as using tiny pencils but it still works. I 'cleaned up' the eyebrows using some concealer. I used the same eye shadow palette on my eyes.

1. I applied the shade pancakes all over the lid.
2. Then I went with penguin on the brow bone.
3. I put the shade Peaches in the crease and the lower lash line.
4. I added some Strawberry Sweets in the crease.
5. I dabbed a little bit of Danger in the outer corner.
6. I applied some Pink Champagne on the lid with my finger.

I used Miss Baby Roll by L'Oreal (£7.99) for my mascara. It's buildable, and gives some great volume!  


I used the bubblegum lip scrub from Lush (£6.50) . Dry lips begone! Then I just dabbed a bit of lipstick with my fingers. The lipstick that I used was Color Sensational Mattes by Maybelline in the shade Burgundy Blush (£6.99). The thing with this lipstick - you can apply it all over the lips and make it super intense and autumnal, or you can make it subtle.  

Final Look 

My final look came to a grand total of: 


Not too bad, but still expensive. The cost of makeup really does add up. 

Here's the final look! Pink and subtle :)

I really enjoyed writing this post, I hope that you have enjoyed reading it as well.  Let me know how much your everyday makeup face 'costs'. 

Until next time peeps, have a nice time, stay warm and safe.

  1. I quite like this pallete. I am not sure what would I do with the intense pink but it was the first colour that caught my attention. ❤ Love, Iga

    1. The colour is not as scary as it looks x It works in a sunset eye look if you combine it with like oranges, yellows and reds :) Thanks for reading x

  2. This is such a fun post idea! That eyeshadow palette looks stunning and I love the look you've created with it!

    Soph - x

    1. By far not original one :) I think this was like a tag or something, or already is :) I thought it was fun as well, makes you think how much you spend on makeup and bits! Also thank you so much x

  3. I love the idea behind this post! I found it really interesting to read. Your final look is so nice. Pink and subtle is definitely my kind of makeup look!

  4. Oh my I love the baby roll mascara, I'm yet to try out the soph x revolution products - I think I might do!!!


  5. I love this eyeshadow look! I always consider doing a post like this but then I think about how much the total would be and the fear puts me off. I think £116 is fairly reasonable for a full face. I really like the Naked concealer too x


  6. Very pretty! I like the bit of pink on your eyes.
    I just followed your lovely blog. Hope you follow back and let's keep in touch.

  7. I love the Soph x Revolution products, and that palette is beautiful! Love this makeup look too. Would love a skincare routine too, your skin looks flawless!xx

  8. Love the eye shadow!


  9. It's always interesting to see other people's make up routines! You're so right though, make up really does add up, it can be so expensive! You look lovely though :)

  10. Such a great post, lovely how you have some cheap and exoensive items, and the Lush lip scrub is a must!

  11. This is such a clever idea!! I really wanna do this and add mine all up too haha although I'm kinda scared because i don't want to realise how much money I've actually spent on makeup!! Great post!!!

  12. Nice post dear.
