How Much Does My Daily Makeup Cost?

img_5345

I was interested in this after watching a Buzzfeed Ladylike video where they took the members bags and totaled how much their daily makeup cost so I thought I would do the same. I can only hope my parents don’t look at this. I do really love makeup and I buy most of it myself and I brings me a lot of joy. I hope at some point later to write a post about whether or not makeup is considered feminist or not. I think for me though even though it’s something very stereotypically feminine but it does make me happy. I love makeup. I love trying it, I love watching youtube videos about it, I love reading reviews on it, and I love especially trying new makeup. My morning routine especially I love taking the time and having lots of products to pick between so that I can try a new look every day. It’s just something that brings me immense joy.

Honestly the price of these did not surprise me simply because even though I use primarily drugstore makeup the prices of it having been going up and up as the years go on, and it is a recurring trend in drugstore makeup brands. I do think that since I do tend to use almost every step, I usually am contouring/bronzing; I use highlighter and sometimes more than one powder, blush, and three different brow products. I’m almost always wearing eyeshadow so that drags the price up. I think if I wore less makeup physically I wouldn’t spend as much on it, but again I really love wearing makeup and it makes me happy so I purposely seek out these things to buy. It was an interesting experiment, how much do you think you spend? Also please go check out the Buzzfeed video called Ladylike “How much money do you spend on makeup?” It’s really funny and just interesting.
