Beauty: FOTD

Today’s face is  my go to everyday look. Some people may not like a smokey eye using black eyeshadow for everyday wear, but it’s just my favorite look. Not too much highlighting or contouring going on today either. Lately I’ve noticed that about an hour or two after I apply my makeup my face gets really oily around my t-zone, and I believe it has to do with my skin care regimen. Today I made a little adjustment by using witch hazel to clean and tone my face before I apply my primer and 3 hours later still no oil! Here’s the products I used to create this look.

Face:

e.l.f Mineral Infused Face Primer

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation (Color 340)

L.A. Girl Pro Conceal (Fawn)

Beauty: Arrival of E.L.F. Goodies!!!

So the e.l.f. products from my Cyber Monday haul have FINALLY arrived! I’m super excited! I’m so ready to try out each product and review them. This week I have finals but after Thursday I’ll have more time to focus on my blog. Here’s some pics of the stuff I got(especially my 11 piece studio brush set)! More detailed review coming later!

Beauty: E.L.F. Cyber Monday Haul!

To start off my makeup journey, I took advantage of Cyber Monday 2013. One website that I was dying to purchase from was eyeslipsface.com or e.l.f. for short. E.L.F. is another “budget friendly” brand that I happen to love. You can find E.L.F. products at stores like Target, or even Dollar Tree. My first purchase from E.L.F. was their eyelid primer. I was beginning to experiment with eye makeup so most of my products were very low-end with little pigmentation. I wanted my eye-shadow to last longer but wasn’t ready to dish out the cash to buy “high-end” primers like the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I ran across the E.L.F. primer in a local dollar tree and made the purchase. I was in LOVE! It stopped my eye-shadow from creasing and helped lighter shades show up better. But that was just the beginning.

For their Cyber Monday Sale, E.L.F. had a 50% off sitewide sale with free shipping on orders over $35. My main purpose in purchasing from their site was to get their 11 Piece Studio Brush Set, however, I decided to take advantage of the deal! In all I purchased $70 dollars worth of makeup for $35!

It’s all scheduled to arrived Wednesday and I cant wait to do a review on each item for you. I may be difficult to do an entire post on all these items without it being super lengthy but I’ll try to make it work. I am trying to get a camera for Christmas and I’m thinking about making YouTube videos of my own. But until then, definitely check out eyeslipsface.com. They are doing what they are calling the ” e.l.f. days of Xmas” and there are 5 days left! Hurry before the deals are gone!
