A rusty look! And a pretty look using the Naked palette!

I've had this color from Beauty From the Earth Cosmetics called "Vamp" for a while now, it's a beautiful rusty color with some sparkles in it, and I really was itching to use it and make it the focus of my look today.  So I decided to go with something bold but not overpowering.  So here's the look I did!

And then I've seen this thing around called, "how much does my face cost?" or something like that where you figure out how much all of the makeup you're wearing costs.  So I thought that would be interesting to see.  So here's everything I used and how much it all cost (if it's a drugstore product, I'm going to put the WalMart price):

Revlon Colorstay Foundation "Sand Beige" $9.98
L'oreal True Match Foundation N2 $7.98
Covergirl Professional Loose Powder Translucent Fair $5.98
ELF Studio Blush/Bronzer Duo $3
ELF Studio Blush "Pink Passion" (HIGHLY recommended!) $3
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser $7.94
Maybelline Super Stay 24/7 Concealer $6.48

Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil "Blonde" $22
Anastasia Brow Powder Duo "Golden Blonde" $22
ELF Studio Cream liner "Coffee" $3

Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper $17
BFTE "Vamp" mineral shadow $6.50
Makeup Geek "Purely Naked" shadow $5.99
Makeup Geek "Corrupt" shadow $5.99
Glamour Doll Eyes "Ancestry" mineral shadow $6
L'oreal HIP Chrome Liner "Black Shock" $8.47
L'oreal Voluminous Power Volume 24h "Blackest Black" $8.47

MAC "Creme Cup" lipstick $15
MAC "Boy Bait" Cremesheen Glass $19.50 (website price, I got mine at a CCO)

So the total I spent on my face is... $184.28.

Wow.  That's a lot haha.  Though most of the products I use every day, really the only interchangeable things are eyeshadows and lip colors.  So really it's not so bad.  Gosh, now I wonder how much money I have invested in my whole makeup collection!

You guys should try this and let me know how much your face costs!

And I wasn't going to add this in but I figured I might as well.  This is just a pretty look that I would totally wear again using just the Naked palette for shadow colors!

And here's my color placement on that:
I liked the way the cool grey played off the warm browns.

But that's all I have for today!  I hope you all had an amazing week!  Don't forget to let me know how much your face costs!


  1. I love this! Absolutely beautiful. Glad to see you're feeling well enough to post again! <3

  2. you look beautiful as always. i love your eyeshadow looks. and i think your face is worth every penny.

    is there any way you could do a brow tutorial? i'm intrigued by the amount of products you use on your brows, but they do look perfect and i'd love to see how you do it.

  3. I'm so glad you're feeling better! :) Love the rust look, especially how you used it under the eyes. :)

  4. you look absolutely gorgeous! I love rusty shades with blue eyes like yours :) Mine are more hazel/amber, so I use cranberry shades to make them pop.

    You've given me an idea with how much your face cost thing. I'm scared of doing it though as I'm a department store snob :/ It may come up to like $500 or something

  5. these looks are gorgeous, I've missed seeing them in my blog feeds on a normal basis. I calculated how much my face cost in this look ( and I think I news to reevaluate where I funnel my money hahah. It was $240.18 yikes!
    Its good to see you back hun

  6. SO pretty! I am so glad to hear you are doing well, Sonja! :)

  7. I LOOOOOOVE the rusty look. It's perfect on you especially with your color eyes. And the Naked palette look... WEll I'm going to try that on myself this weekend! Yikes I would NOT want to know how much my "face costs" on a look because I love using lots of eyeshadows hehe... I might do it in one of my blog posts! You look amazing and healthy =) It's great to see another post from you

  8. both looks are beautiful & suit you so well.
    Ha I would not want to know how much my face costs but I'm actually quite curious so I will try to work it out someday! haha.

  9. I like both looks but I really like the rusty, smokiness of the lower lash line of the first look :) Beautiful!!

  10. Both looks are amazing. That rust colour looks incredible with your blue eyes. They totally pop!

  11. Beautiful eye makeup as usual. Great colours.

  12. I just did this post today, and my total was $118! I only used one MAC product, and the rest drugstore. Needless to say, I was a bit shocked lol
