How much does my face cost??? Featuring affordable products

I’ve seen this trend recently on youtube where some of the gurus were adding up the cost of the make up products they use to create a look. I found it really interesting because sometimes we don’t think of how much our make cost when added together. Some of these amounts were as equivalent to a mortgage or car loan payment… Ouch!

So I will do 2 series: one with affordable products and one with expensive high end products.

So all the products that are listed below are used to create this make up look img1464055997781and are under $20 each. Here we go:

Primer – Maybelline Instant Pore Eraser: $6 at target

Concealers – L.A Girl Pro Conceal Orange Corrector: $2.99 at a beauty supply

L.A Girl Pro Conceal Cool Tan: $2.99 at a beauty supply

Foundation- BH Cosmetics Liquid Foundation: $3.50 on the BH cosmetics website

  1. That’s such a cool idea; it’s the first time I am seeing someone calculating how much the look costs!:) It’s true that we usually don’t realize how quickly it adds up even with budget products. I guess it’s better to stay in the dark, lol. Anyway, I really like your look here; it’s so fresh and summer-looking:) Beautiful.
