A year ago, I wrote a post about my daily makeup routine (read it) and how much the prices of each product added up to the cost of my face. Since then I’ve tried a lot of new products and different products have become a staple in my everyday makeup routine so I thought it would be really interesting to write it again. The biggest difference now is the foundation and face makeup that I use, mostly because I can’t afford the really expensive brands anymore and also because I’ve found a love for drugstore brands such as Rimmel and Revolution. To be completely honest, I still use good makeup brushes and probably always will as I’ve found a good makeup applicator is the key to a good makeup application.
Benefit’s Porefessional Primer (travel size) – £6. (buy it here).
Rimmel’s 25 Hour Lasting Liquid Foundation (shade light porcelain) – £7.99 (buy it here).
Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Palette (used for blusher, bronzer and highlight!) – £8 (buy it here)
Freedom Makeup London Brow Pomade (shade blonde) – £5 (buy it here).
Maybelline Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette – £9.99 (buy it here).
Rimmel Gel Liner (black) – £6.99 (buy it here).
Lancôme Grandiose Mascara (noir) – £26 (buy it here).
Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick (shade ‘Child Star’) – £19 (buy it here).
MAC Lipstick (shade Viva Glam II) – £15.50 (buy it here).
That means my face now adds up to £104.47 which is a huge £110.53 difference (as last years price was £215!) Right now I’d probably say I’m at my best in terms of makeup and can do it a lot better than last year and to think that this is with a lot more drug stores makes me very happy! It just shows that you don’t need to spend so much for your daily face. Of course, I still love makeup in all forms but I tend to live the high-end products for special occasions now rather than everyday!
