How Much Does My Face Cost?

There has been a tag going around having you look at the makeup that you use on a daily basis and then you calculate how much your face costs. I'm pretty sure mine is going to be crazy because I tend to use a lot of products on a daily basis. I decided to also total the brushes that I use daily. Those are really expensive but I'll include them for this post.

So yes this is a crazy amount of money to spend on your face everyday. Crazy isn't even the word. I cannot believe the much my total is actually. I think if I wore less makeup on a daily basis my total would be less but I'm not sure what I could cut out. I obviously got deals on a lot of these products so this isn't really the true cost but this does give you a sense of what my "face costs". Apparently a lot! I'd love to know what your face costs? If you do a post on this let me know or let me know in the comments below.
