How Much is My Face Worth!

Hey Everyone!!!!

Today is a special blog post on the “How Much Is My Face Worth Tag”! I saw this tag all throughout the blogosphere, and since I am slated for another Fashion Fanatic tomorrow, I have decided to try it out. I found this very interesting, as I have never concentrated on the price on my makeup since I have accumulated my collection for the last 3 years. However, Once I did this tag, I realized how much time and money actually goes into my daily beauty routine. Let us start now:

No Makeup

Both of these pictures are taken of me right after I took a shower. My face was cleansed using a Neutrogena citrus facial cleanser and some organic makeup cleansing wipes. While my skin is pretty clear at the moment, I have very bad hyper-pigmentation on my eyelids and my undereye area. I also have very bushy eyebrows (I know, I need to wax, but I haven’t had the time).


Face Makeup

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Wear Concealer in Extra Deep 06 ($23.00)

MAC Studio Tech Powder in NW58 ($31.00)

Eye Makeup

Wet N’ Wild Mega Eyes Eyeshadow Trio ($4.50)

MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork ($21.00)

MAC In Extreme Dimension Mascara in Black Drama ($21.00)

Estee Lauder Pure Color Intense Kajal Eyeliner Duo in Blackest Black/Blackend Cocco ($21.00)

Maybelline Big Eye Mascara in Brown-Black {bottom lashes} ($7.49)

Lip Makeup

Maybelline Color Sensational in Chocalat ($3.49)

L’Oreal Paris Colour Richie Lip Glos ($8.95)

Cheek Makeup

MAC Powder Blush in Sweet as Cocoa ($21.00)

MAC Eyeshadow in Embark ($15.00)

Lightest Color on Eyeshadow Palette

All in all, I spend over $171.43 in makeup on my face, and that is not including brushes. I was astounded by how much my daily makeup routine cost me, however, I realized that we invest a lot of money into how we present ourselves. On that note, I feel that in this particular photo, I prefer my non-makeup face to my makeup one, but in real life, I prefer wearing a little makeup. 

As a little note for this blog post, I just wanted to say that every single person who reads this blog should look themselves in the mirror and say “I am beautiful” until they believe it, unconditionally. The only “ugly” things in the world are personalities; beauty is found in all. I think that all of you are beautiful.

P.S. For this week, I will be doing a few more Fashion Fanatics, makeup tutorials/fashion tips for homecoming, and a GIVEAWAY!!!!!


  1. I am make up iliterate! (Lol) this pass Saturday I went to Mac & purchased moisturizer and lipstick. I had my last Mac powder for a number of years. I vowed to do better. I prefer the natural look. But a made up face is so glamourous!

  2. I don't think I would want to add up all my face products...I'm scared to really know how it costs!lol
    We use some of the same MAC products.... I love sweet as cocoa and embark too :)
    I've been thinking about picking up MAC paint pot - groundwork. Its a great color on you!

    xo, Jackie

  3. wow, what an interesting idea. I think the cost of my makeup bag could afford me a nice designer purse.. scary to even think about it!!)))
    Beautiful pictures, you look gorgeous with makeup and without!
