zoraneale :  I’m in Australia, so all in AUD 🙂

Hair – I have naturally brown hair that I dye blonde, and have short hair with an undercut, so cut and colour every six weeks or so is $140.00.   I’m trying to grow my hair out though so this hasn’t been an expense for the last three months.  I have a mullet + massive regrowth currently haha.

Nails – I get SNS on my natural nails, $40.00per month.

Brow/Upper lip thread – $15 per fortnight

Skincare – I buy supermarket facewash, so around $12.00 every two, three months?  I buy a $30 moisteriser every two – three months too.

Makeup – I buy an expensive $60.00 foundation but find I only have to replace it every 4-6months.  Foundation is really all I wear on a day to day, to cover my awful skin.   I have bronzer, mascara, eyeshadows etc but I’m terrible with makeup and rarely use it, so rarely replace it.  

I thought I was pretty basic – but looks like I spend more than other women here.  You must all be natural beauties, I need all the help I can get haha.

I want to start investing in a good skincare routine though, with expensive products that hopefully fix my skin tone so that I don’t need to wear as heavy a foundation.

As you get older, I think you spend more. When I was in my 20s and 30s I didn’t spend much, now that I’m in my 40s I spend way more.
