I went on a date the other night with my fiance, Kieron, and even though I wasn’t going to put much make up on, I used my new Revolution eye shadow palette and my new Revolution lip gloss.
I used my new E.L.F purchases for my face (you can read the post here) and set the make up with Rimmels Loose Powder in translucent. I used Revolution Duo Face Sculpt for the hollows of my cheeks, forehead and nose contouring. To highlight I used Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Peach Lights.
For the eyes I used Revolution Flawless palette in 16G and I used the champagne colour on my lid and brow bone and a soft brown for my crease. I used Rimmel Scandal Eyes Curve Alert mascara (one of my favourites) and Soap and Glory Archery Brow for my eye brows.
For the lips I used the Revolution lip gloss from the ultra nude set, it was the middle shade.
I really liked this look as it was light and made me look a lot less tired as I’ve not been sleeping well recently. I’d like to set up a Youtube channel soon so I can film my tutorials! If you’d like to know how I did this look, comment below and I was make a post about it 🙂
I feel like I havent posted in ages even though it’s only been a bit over a week! The reason is because I got a new job! It was my first week last week and I absolutely love it! I guess I’m going to have to find a routine so I can go to work, gym then blog as I seem to struggle doing all three at the moment!
Back to the blog 😛
E.L.F has finally come to the UK! I’m probably a little behind but as soon as I found out, I rushed out to my closest Superdrug and grabbed a few products. As you all know, I’m a huge fan of foundations so I only brought a foundation, primer and concealer.
The first product I picked up was the tone adjusting face primer. There was no tester on this and there were so many to choose from so I was literally going on my own instinct. When I got home to try it, I was pleasantly surprised with a gorgeous smoothing texture that makes my face feel so matte! This cost £9.00 which is roughly what I would pay and I have to say, you’re definitely getting your moneys worth!
Next Is the foundation and I went for the Foundation Serum. I wasn’t sure which to go with at first and had my heart set on this one even though it looked slightly too dark in the bottle (again no tester). This product cost £9 and I’m so happy I went ahead with it. I’t looked dark on the bottle, but it is the perfect shade for my skin tone. It feels very smoothing and like it says on the bottle, it’s a serum. I’d say it has light to medium coverage but could definitely be buildable!
Last up is the HD Lifting Concealer. I LOVE Concealers and I was really impressed with the formula of this one! The only thing I was disappointed with was the fact you had a choice of three shades which are fair, medium and dark and there were no testers. I went for fair and when I tried it on my skin at home it was slightly too dark, so I wouldn’t recommend it for building. It does make a great under eye concealer as it is slightly orange toned.
Overall I’m really pleased with my first E.L.F products and am definitely going back for more!
What’s your favourite E.L.F products and which would you recommend?
