So I've seen this tag floating around the internet for a while and decided that I would like to do it just to see exactly how much money I was spending on makeup. I did my everyday routine using the products I most often reach for, I didn't try and use cheaper/pricier products in order to skew the results.

I think compared to a lot of tags that I've seen my total isn't too bad at all, and I have got a mix of both high end and highstreet products. The most expensive things I use are the Illamasqua Setting Powder and their Matt Primer. The products I've been using recently have been on the cheaper side as I'm starting to see little difference between high end and low end products. For example, usually my foundation is £30+ but I've been using Revlon Colourstay recently and have really loved it.

There are also certain products I've run out of that I need to repurchase that would usually be included in my makeup. For example, my Urban Decay Setting Spray which is one of my Holy Grail products. I've also been using Sleek for blushes, contour and highlighting recently instead of higher end brands.

I hope you found this interesting, if you've done this tag I'd love to see a link to it in the comments below!
