Helllloo!I was reading Cosmo' online the other day and I saw an article about how much your face is worth... no not your value as a model, but, how much is the makeup you actually wear, with so many different products we put on our face, it can mount up.
I dread to think how much I have in my draw in my room, but, I thought I would share with you what I have in my makeup bag for the general everyday grab and how much that comes to.
I have even got some of my friends in on it to share with you tooo!
Just to see what makeup bag prices vary between my group of friends and our different careers.

Generally on a day to day basis if I put some makeup on this is what I will throw on, however, I work at a radio station so you can get away with not wearing any.. however I still like to have a little glam just to give you that inner boost of confidence.

Diana's day to day makeup is mainly for going to university and then hanging out with her friends she is currently having a year abroad in Australia.
I think it's amazing to look at how much we spend on just an everyday look.
When I was reading cosmo' I was amazed to hear that Lady GaGa had over £600 of makeup on, and after reading about how much the girls at the cosmo office who work in the world of beauty and fashion had, I was interested to see what it would be like for me and my friends who work in different environments to see how we actually spend just as much if not more.
A big thank you to my friends for getting involved!

Until Next Time
