I thought it would be revealing to put a price tag on “my makeup of the day”, but thinking about it, do I really want to know?!? Of course, I’m not adding the price of all skincare products & brushes I used … so it’s only makeup products girls!!!
Today it’s July 19
Primer: I’m using my 100 point sample of the Hourglass Ambient Light Correcting Primer in Mood Light – Cost: 0$ (BTW, I really like it a lot!)
Foundation: Today, I’m wearing bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream (color Buttercream 03) – it’s my go-to foundation for summer and it’s priced at 37$
Concealer: I’m using both Becca’s Under Eye Brightening Corrector (36$) + bareMinerals’ Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer (25$). Those two are a perfect match for me …
Under Eye Powder (wet baking): After my average initial review, I have to say that I changed my mind and totally love Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder (30$)… Like they say: “Only fools never changed their minds”!!
Cream Bronzer: Kevyn Aucoin’s The Contour Book The Art of Sculpting + Defining Volume II (78$). I may be overreaching but at present time, this is by far my best purchase of 2016 & my product of the year.
Setting Powder: To powder my T-Zone a tiny bit, I’m using Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder (47$). I find that less is way more youthful on my old self…
Cheeks: Today, I’m sporting Nars Blush in Impassioned (38$). This is the perfect pinky/nude EVER!
Highlighter: I’m going with an oldie but a goodie, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (70$)!
Makeup Setting Spray: As today is very hot and humid, I chose to apply Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray (38$). I need this step if I don’t want my makeup to melt like Olaf in Summer …
For my eyebrows, to get a splendid result, I went with my preferred arsenal:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz (27$),
Benefit Cosmetics Ka-Brow! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color with Brush Deluxe Sample, that I received as a gift with purchase (0$). This product is soooo good and the color #1 is pure p-e-r-f-e-c-t-i-o-n,
And the Holy Grail Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel (29$)!
Shadows: Too Faced Chocolate BonBon palette (59$),
and for my Mascara: I went with Too Faced Better Than Sex Deluxe sample, also received as a gift with purchase (0$).
I stayed in my comfort zone and applied Mac’s Lipglass in Cherry Blossom (19$)
Sweet Jesus, it costed a ridiculous 559$ to achieve today’s makeup… I know I pay a lot for makeup products, but I am still floored! To make matters worse, this is my Summer, «no-makeup» makeup!!! Umh, I’m wondering (and afraid of) what would be the price for a full-face winter, hardcore makeup!
Well folks, with that simple calculation, there is nothing else to add. I just hope that I use the hell up of every product I bought (or at least try to)…
I’m curious about what your face cost today ???
