Recently while I was catching up on reading one of my favourite blogs, Makeup and Macaroons, I saw that Lilit had come up with a really cool challenge of trying to create a FOTD for under $100AUD.
As you all probably know by now (because of my incessant ranting of the fact) Australian make-up is super expensive when compared with other countries, so $100 for a full face would be pushing it. I thought this was such a fun challenge that I had to give it a go and see how I would do.
The products I used were ones I already had in my collection but perhaps haven't gotten as much love as their higher end counterparts.
So without further ado here is the face I created :)
Here is a close up picture of my eyes :)
So how much is my face worth?? Well let's break it down shall we...
Foundation: Covergirl TruBlend Liquid Makeup in 01 Ivory $19.95 from Priceline
Concealer: Maybelline Mineral Power Naturally Perfecting Concealer in Ivory $15.45 from Priceline
Powder: Savvy by DB Translucent Pressed Powder $4.95 from Pricline
Bronzer: Savvy by DB Jumbo Bronzer in Terracotta $9.95 from Priceline
Blush: 10 Pan Blush Palette $3 from Ebay
Eyebrows: Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil $8.50 from Priceline
Eyeshadow Base: Soft White Eye Kohl Pencil by BYS $3.95 from Gloss
For my eyes I used the Modernista Palette by Model's Prefer which I bought for $4 from Pricline (such a bargain!). I also used the lip colours in this palette to achieve my peachy pink pout and the white shimmery eyeshadow as a cheek highlight.
Eyeliner: Savvy by DB Liquid Eyeliner in Black/Brown $3 from Priceline
Mascara: Maybelline the Colossal Volume Express in Glam Black $19.25 from Priceline
So my whole face comes to a total of....*drum roll please* $92.00!!!
Wow even using cheapie products its still almost $100 for a full face of makeup! On the other hand I do have $8 change.....time for another trip to Priceline!! :D
|The Products I used|
Thanks to Lilit for creating this challenge I had a lot of fun picking out my products and it's definitely inspired me to use some of my cheaper makeup items that I perhaps don't get enough love.
Can you create a face for less than $100AUD??? If you do this challenge please link it below, I would love to read more of these posts!!
