20 March 2011

I've seen this tag on quite a few blogs recently and saw it as a good opportunity to tell you what my everyday makeup routine involves these days. and so here goes..

     total : £289.63
     total without brushes : £243.86

I wasn't sure whether to do this with or without brushes so i've calculated both. Though to me, my brushes are an essential part of my makeup routine so I think it's only right that they should be included in the over all price.

All in all I don't think that is half bad. Considering the amount of time that these indivual products will last me i'm happy with the amount that my face costs, it's worth it considering what I do to keep it clear by using good quality products.

I'm just rounding off a lazy sunday with some lounging about and the adding of finishing touches to some sketches :) Hope you've all had a great weekend.
