In which I show you my everyday face

I love the “how much is your face worth” posts, but I’ve not seen one from anyone in a while, so here is my normal face, for work or a non dressy night out (pub as opposed to out to dinner or someones birthday I guess…)

Benefit  Erase Paste £19.50
Benefit Porefessional primer £23
Mac Paint pot (LE) Vintage Selection £13.50
Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara £19
Elizabeth Arden gel eyeliner £16 ish? 
Sleek Oh So Special palette £6.50
Primark brow pencil (came from an eyebrow kit) £3
Mac Happy together (for contouring/highlighting) (LE)  £16ish?
Mac Petticoat MSF (LE) £23
Mac Studio Sculpt (nw25) £23

My crappy mental arithmetic skills make that about £178. 

well swipe me! (is swearing acceptable on a blog, I would have said fuck) what a lot of hard earned pennies! And that isn’t even a quarter of my makeup in total!

I use a few different foundations, but normally swap between this and double-wear or Max factor colour adapt depending on how blemishy I am (I have PCOS spotty symptoms fairly often) and I either use this sleek palette or the urban decay naked palette (altho some of the shadows are starting to run out in that!)

I hardly ever use any mascara but this one, I have naturally long lashed so don’t need lengthening, just thickening, or I end up with black dots below my eyebrows, which is not such a good look!

Happy together is a lovely product, highlight and contour in one, but when it runs out i’ll go back to the bourgeois chocolate bronzer…(which lives in my handbag anyway) 

And when slapped on it looks something along the lines of this: (taken in the summer, but all the same products)

Have any of you done a face of the day/how much is your face worth post? Please send me the links!

    Thanks for the comment on my post! So happy to have found a Brightoner’s blog. There aren’t enough of them.

    You have beautiful hair by the way 🙂

    This makeup looks lovely for everyday! And as long as you’re getting daily use out of the products it’s not that bad that they’ve come up to quite a large total? Thats the excuse I make for myself anyway…

    This being said I’m debating whether to purchase my first ever MSF, would you recommend?

    Your makeup looks so natural, you look lovely. I would love to have such a makeup selection, but I have no idea what to buy or what to do with it, ha.
    Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog.

    Ooooh I love these posts! So interesting to see what make-up everyone uses but I’m too scared to do this myself.. I’ll probably feel really guilty about the money I spend on make-up haha xx
