In total I used the following:
- Eyebrow filler
- Eyebrow wax
- Clear mascara
- Setting powder
- 5 different eyeshadows
- 2 different eyeliners
- Lip Exfoliator
- Lip Gloss
If you count all the eye products individually, I used 19 make up products and 9 different applicators/tools.
The total cost of my beauty routine on this day = $304
That’s fucking insane…a three hundred and four dollar face. And that’s not even all the makeup I own. I probably have over a thousand dollars worth of makeup. I should probably find something nicer to store it in, since it’s most of my net worth:
That number really makes me think about A. how expensive it is to be a girl and B. what the hell I would do if there was a fire.
A. Even if you don’t wear makeup, it’s still more expensive. Dry cleaning, haircuts, health insurance, cars, … everything. It seems like everything is more expensive for a woman.
B. If my apartment burned down, obviously that would suck. But replacing clothes, furniture, electronics, etc. would be fairly straightforward. Replacing makeup and jewelry would be an exercise in patience, diligent research, and a feat of online shopping. The thought is paralyzing.
