HOLY CRAP!! I did not see that coming. I've seen a lot of these 'what is my face worth' posts lately and thought they were fab. It's a great way to see what everyone uses in their everyday makeup routine, but it's also really interesting and a little bit scary to see just how much your everyday makeup bag alone is worth. I figured I'd go all out and include everything I use, so lipbalm, tweezers, brushes and lash curlers were all thrown in there. I'm pretty glad I decided against adding my morning skincare items into the mix, I'd think I'd have had a little cry. Nearly £250 on makeup seems totally crazy when you think about what else you could buy with that money. The scary thing is, this is the tiniest fraction of my whole collection and I'm using a fair few drugstore products for my everyday look right now! I don't even want to think about the total had I have swapped Bourjois for Chanel or Look Beauty for Clarins! We just won't think about that right now.

So, we've learnt a couple of things here. Firstly, I spend a small fortune on makeup and secondly, my brushes badly need cleaning. Shameful.

Let me know if you've done one of these posts, I'd love to see it!
