It’s our birthday and we’ll do makeup if we want to! Are you ready to get your face on to celebrate our 10 years of FABULOUS? Today I’m showing you a day-time appropriate look that will be sure to go with any ensemble and anywhere…work, school, or a day out with your special someone. In our case… makeup for the e.l.f. birthday party at the office! Follow my steps here to get Maria’s look:

STEP 1

Get that beautiful face even and radiant with the Flawless Finish Foundation and Essential Foundation Brush.

STEP 2

You know this is my favorite step EVER… adding a little highlight to your cheeks with the Shimmering Facial Whip and the Flawless Concealer Brush! I love when my models GLOW! Especially on a birthday like this one 🙂

STEP 3

Apply a base color to your lids like one of the Smudge Pots in Ain’t That Sweet or Pearls of Wisdom, using the “C” Brush in a patting and blending motion. Light lids will give you light in your eyes!

STEP 4

Add some color to the edge of your eyes too. Try the color “Back to Basics” in the Smudge Pots and blend with the Eye Contour Brush.

STEP 5

Pop open those big, bright eyes with the right liner application. The inner rim should be lighter… you can use the Eye Widener to achieve the doe-eyed look. Then fill in your lash line with a deeper shade to emphasize and contrast the white! I’m in love with the Mineral Eye Liner for this purpose. Don’t forget to layer the mascara- my favorite is the mineral Infused, for its brush size and effects.

STEP 6

Get those cheeks flushed with a wet sponge and a small drop of the HD Cream Blush. Gently apply and blend in a light pink shade like “Headliner.” Finish off your look with a gloss to give your lips that candy-coated feeling! I’ve used the Shimmer Gloss in Twinkle Pink.

Tell me about your last birthday and what e.l.f. product you used! I want to feature YOU!
