Kaley's Neon Lip, With a Matte Twist
Kaley's Neon Lip, With a Matte Twist
TUESDAY, APRIL 08, 2014

Source: Getty

We're serious this time, spring is definitely here. The sun is out in NYC, the flowers and trees are blooming, and we are just relishing in it after this horrible, horrible winter. A winter so horrible in fact, that bright, neon anything is so, so appealing. Case in point, Kaley Cuoco's vivid fuchsia lip here, a color you know we were crazy about last month. The color is stunning, paired with a muted, natural look elsewhere on the face. To me, it screams springtime blossoms.

I have to say, I'm surprised to see such a bright spring color with a matte finish. This is usually about the time of year we start to see juicy, glossy lips as opposed to the dark, mattes of winter. Is Kaley worried winter might sneak back up on us? Does she want too embrace bright, without being too bright? Either way, we love it Kaley!

What bright, neon colors will you be wearing this spring?

OLIVIA MUNN at the ACM awards
OLIVIA MUNN at the ACM awards
MONDAY, APRIL 07, 2014

 

Hey country-loving elfettes! Did you watch the ACM awards on Sunday night? If you missed them, you missed Olivia Munn dominating the red carpet. Her look reminded me of a coral goddess as she posed and strolled in her Reem Acra gown. What I loved most was her fresh faced glow and that she didn't go with a typical smokey eye look for this gown.

To get her look, try the following e.l.f. products and get your coral on for spring:

1. Mix a drop of the Shimmering Facial Whip into your foundation or Tinted Moisturizer and apply evenly over face and eyes.

2. Dust a light, shimmering shadow over your lids and on the lower lash-line like colors from the Flawless Eyeshadow in Golden Goddess, using the Studio C Brush. Apply a sharp line of the Precision Liquid Liner or use a pencil liner and gently smudge if you prefer. Add Mascara to complete the eye.

3. For lips, apply a layer of the Essential Lip Stain in Hot Tamale and top with a layer of Studio Lip Stain in Fashionista for the perfect coral. Finish your look with a light blush like the Pressed Mineral Blush in Sweet Retreat.

xoxo
Sonia

GET THE LOOK: BELLA THORNE
GET THE LOOK: BELLA THORNE
MONDAY, APRIL 07, 2014

Last week we showed you Bella Thorne's gorgeous red-carpet look at the Kids Choice Awards and today we're showing you step-by-step how to get her eyes for your special events!

Step 1:
Apply
Studio Cream Eyeliner in Golden, over the lid as a shadow and blend into the crease using your finger or the Studio 'C' Brush. Use the shadow in layers to achieve desired level of color.

Step 2:
Using the
Studio Contour Brush, apply a small amount of the Studio Cream Eyeshadow in Teal party to the edges of the eyelid and blend. The key is to use a little bit of color at a time since this spreads quick!

Step 3:
Line the lower eyelid rim with the
Essential Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in Grassy Green, between and under the lashes. Follow with Twinkle Teal or Black Bandit liner on the outer half of lower lid, between lashes and below lashes for dimension and more drama.

Step 4:
Apply
Essential Dramatic Lashes to your upper lid for more impact... Take your time when doing this! Finish off your look by lining the upper lid with Studio Precision Liquid Eyeliner to give the appearance of a bigger eye and also help to blend in the false lashes to your natural lash line.

Step 5:
Finish off your look with the
Studio Waterproof Lengthening and Volumizing Mascara to allow your natural lashes to mix in with the false. If you did not apply false lashes, you can still get a beautiful look with 2-3 coats of mascara!

xoxo
Sonia

Throwback Thursday: Britney & The Body Glitter!
Throwback Thursday: Britney & The Body Glitter!
THURSDAY, APRIL 03, 2014

Source: The Coveteur

There’s no doubt that Britney Spears was one of our favorite trend-setting stars of the 90s and I’m sure there are plenty of us who can admit to wearing this all over body glitter look! If you want to wear glitter in 2014, try wearing a glittery or sparkly outfit and concentrate glitter makeup to one part of your face. Britney got it right earlier this year at the People’s Choice Awards proving that she is still the trendsetter we know and love!

To get Britney’s sparkly eyes here start with a great primer like our Mineral Eyeshadow Primer:

1. Sweep a light dusting of our Mineral Pressed Eyeshadow in Out All Night over eyelids.

2. Using the same color, load up your brush and smoke out the look from the middle eyelid to the outer corners. You can wet the brush slightly to make the color even more pigmented.

3. Using a light highlighter color like our Studio Baked Highlighter in Moonlight Pearls and the Studio Small Precision Brush, highlight the inner corners of your eyes and the brow bone.

4. Smudge our Essential Brightening Eye Liner in Black between upper lashes and upper water line.

5. For the lower lash line – use Essential Liquid Eyeliner in Stardust to give your eyes some sparkle! You can do two coats to give your eyes that extra glittery look.

6. Finish the look with our Essential Dramatic Lash Kit.
