ELF Editorial Comp

If you haven't already seen and heard on twitter, ELF cosmetics are holding a £50 competition with the tag #elfeditoral. I decided I wanted to give it a whirl and it gave me an excuse to use all of my elf goodies I've aquired recently!

As the weather was foggy outside the idea was to go for a mystical look with this springs hottest pastel colour - lilac. I wanted to be bold and take a risk so I decided to add this to the lip and matched the colour exactly. 

Here's my look: 

I went for a high impact light and edit to give the look a really bright an etheral feel. I think it helps to achieve the feel in the photos. 

I achieved the look by finally using some of the purple shades in the ELF 100 piece marble eye shadow palette. I would never have thought to use a lilac or purple on myself before, but it gives my blue/green/yellow eyes a big pop!

I created a silky base by using an elf tinted moisturiser in ivory and a dust of ELF's HD powder. 

I wanted a slight shimmery effect on my cheeks so smudged a tiny bit of an ELF jumbo Lipgloss stick in Tiki Torches and finished the cheeks of with a dusting of ELF's pigment eyeshadow in colour D28 which is a shimmery white colour, that has pigments of pink running through it. 

I wanted to match the lip exactly and so I mixed one of the lilac eyeshadows with a lipbalm and gently painted it onto the lip. 

To finish off the look I added some clear ELF lengthening & Defining mascara. 

Now that I've been playing with my ELF palette a bit more I can't wait to create a few more looks. 

Until Next Time
