How much is your daily face worth? Interesting question right? How much do we spend on our daily makeup products? I read this article in Look magazine a week ago and i was intrigued to see how much my daily face of makeup is worth.
Makeup to me is one of lifes little pleasures. I actually enjoy wearing it (the majority of the time, on the days i can’t be bothered i simply dont), it makes me feel great, not in a “I need makeup to live” type way, but more in a ” i am in control of how i look today” type way. Is that weird? It is isn’t it.
I’m ok with that.
Not only do i love finding great product i also love the actual action of applying makeup, I would say maybe i missed my calling in life and should have been an MUA to the stars, but honestly i’m actually crap at it… really not good. I have the tried and tested look for my own face, which has taken me years to perfect, and even then its ok at best.
However, i enjoy the action of actually applying makeup. When i worked in an office environment and had myself and the kids to get ready of a morning, i would get up half an hour earlier, get a coffee and grab my makeup and take to the mirror. With my face on all i had to do was chuck my uniform on at the last minute. It gave me the sense of being ready for the world.
Now i work from home i go makeup free more days, which makes me love donning my makeup even more when i do do it.
So the matter in hand.. How much is my daily face of makeup worth? I am genuinely intrigued.
Lets find out shall we?
This is what i wear on my face whenever i wear makeup. I’m not overly adventurous, i will change the eye-shadow occasionally but generally keep it to a black eye liner then i go all in with the lipstick, usually bold red or pink. And the rest is for full face and ready to go!

Amazing.. I would never have guessed that, less than £100 so that’s pretty good and of course cost per wear brings each item down to pennies, but its amazing how much our daily face of product is worth and what us ladies spend our money on isn’t it (this doesn’t even include beauty prep items!).
I have to admit, a lot of these pieces are excellent value (W7 cosmetics in particular are amazing value, the mascara is the best i’ve ever used including all the designer ones i’ve tried over the many mascara wearing years!) so i feel pretty good about my daily face products.
Have you ever totalled your daily face up? Id love to know yours!
