Scrolling through Facebook, I found this article about the cost of a full face of makeup on Buzzfeed. It went through popular vloggers daily beauty routines and totted up the cost of each item used.
Obviously, that doesn’t account for cost per wear (I’m already minimising), but it’s funny to see what the outcome is. So, onto my face’s worth.
I’m working with what I have on today. It’s fairly typical, nothing fancy. I don’t think I’d have the stomach to do this with the stash I use for getting properly dolled up. I’ve linked reviews where I have ’em. Also, some press samples are featured and are marked as such in the linked reviews.
