beauty how-to: FALSE LASHES
beauty how-to: FALSE LASHES
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 06, 2014

Hey elfette! Are your lashes looking thin or short? If you've been dying to learn how to apply falsies, here's your chance to learn and try them out! They come in so many different shapes and sizes at e.l.f. Cosmetics, and with a little practice you will be able to put them on in a few short minutes. Get your lashes to flutter and fly with this tutorial!

STEP 1
Gently remove the first lash from the package, (I usually use my pointer finger to press down on the lash hair and pull it away from the plastic/adhesive). Hold the false lash to your natural lash line, in order to see if it will fit properly or if it needs trimming. Most lashes need trimming to look realistic and fit your eye properly. To trim, remove the lash from your eye and cut from the OUTSIDE EDGE as needed. Cutting from the shorter side will leave your false lash on the dramatic side and it will become difficult to blend in to your natural hair.

STEP 2 
Trim the other lash according to the size you trimmed the first one. You can do so by holding them together or by using the piece cut from first lash, to show you how much the other one will be trimmed. Then, apply the e.l.f. Lash Glue to the rim of the band. Allow the glue to get tacky for a few seconds before applying, or it will be too liquidy. 

STEP 3
Using a set of e.l.f. Tweezers grip the lash and begin to apply towards the center of your eye. Once you feel the center is as close to your lash line as possible, begin to push in the rest of your false lash and adjust quickly to fit your eye shape. 

STEP 4
Finish off the false lashes with a great mascara, like the e.l.f. Studio 3-in-1. This brush allows you to apply mascara in small sections and comb through to blend the false with the natural for a seamless look. I also like to apply a thin line of black liquid liner onto the eye after the lash is applied, so that any glue can be hidden and the lash line looks cleaner!

Sweet Meets Edgy With Olivia Palermo!
Sweet Meets Edgy With Olivia Palermo!
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 06, 2014

Source: Rex USA

Newlywed Olivia Palermo is always dressed to the nines, ever since her villainous spin on The City (Full disclosure: This elfette was always Team Olivia over Team Whitney!). But she tends to keep her makeup really understated and classic, using her outfit as her statement piece whenever she's at an event. That's fine—even the most beauty-obsessed elfette loves to accessorize!—but seeing this recent look really stopped me in my tracks. The look is essentially girly: Soft blush, pale dewy skin, a YLBB lip color, and natural brows, but the edgy eyeliner definitely takes this look up a notch!

Wanna try this look for yourself? Prep with our Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer in Radiant Glow to get off to a summery start. To get this gorgeous, dewy skin, our makeup artists' tip is to mix your shade of Studio Flawless Finish Foundation with a dab of Essential Shimmering Facial Whip in Spotlight or Golden Peach before applying. Next, gently apply our Studio HD Blush in Headliner with the Studio Small Stipple Brush for a soft, blushing glow with a great finish. Another great tip? Put a tiniest touch of blush on your chin and forehead, to bring a more natural-looking glow to the rest of the face. Now for the eyes, prime, prime, prime, as always, you know the Mineral Eyeshadow Primer, Studio Eye Primer and Liner Sealer, and Essential Eyelid Primer by now! Then, use the Studio Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in Confetti, applied with a finger. Now for the fun part: eyeliner! Use a bold, black liquid liner on the top lashline and lower waterline for this look. Our picks are the Studio Precision Liquid Eyeliner and the Essential Liquid Eyeliner in Black. Finish this look off with a plumping mascara. Try our Studio Volume Plumping Mascara, or the Essential Volumizing Mascara.

What do you think of Olivia's look elfettes?

beauty how-to: EASY BROWS
beauty how-to: EASY BROWS
TUESDAY, AUGUST 05, 2014

STOP! Put those tweezers down Elfette, because the brow police is HERE. If your brows are pencil thin, it's time to whip them back into shape with four easy steps. Big, beautiful, brows are in right now and they're super easy to create with e.l.f. Cosmetics.

STEP 1
Comb through your brow hair using the e.l.f. Studio Brow Comb, and then tame your unruly hairs with the treatment side of the e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Treat & Tame. Regrow your brow hairs and keep them all shaped in the same direction at the same time!

STEP 2
If you just don't know what shape to fill in or how to create a shape, use the e.l.f. Essential Eyebrow Stencil Kit. Before applying any powders/gels, hold each stencil over your current brow to find the one that best works for you. To make things easier, apply the stencil to your face using a very gentle tape to hold it in place. 

STEP 3
Using a powder 2-3 shades lighter than your natural hair color, Brush it on very softly to fill in the stencil. This will give you a guide to where your deeper shades should fall. You can use the matte powder from an eyeshadow pakette, or the e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Kit. To choose the correct shade of powder, try to identify your hair color tone, (are you warm / cool / ash / etc.).

STEP 4
Remove the stencil gently and then begin to detail your brow using the e.l.f. Studio Angled Eyeliner Brush and a gel that matches your hair color, from the e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Kit. The shades not deep enough in gel? Try using a black cream eyeliner instead! The key to this step is to create very fine lines where your brow is naturally darker (the mid section and ends). Try NOT to use too much gel all over or your brow will look too heavy.

What's your favorite brow product or technique?

BEAUTY SCHOOL 101: primers
BEAUTY SCHOOL 101: primers
THURSDAY, JULY 31, 2014

 

Before any flashy color or perfect finish, a PRIMER is a must, Elfette! It's lesson 1 of our Back to Beauty School regimen and I've put together a study-guide just for YOU. There's a primer for every type of skin and any kind of finish you want your foundation and face makeup to achieve.

What does primer do? Imagine painting a fun color on the walls of your room, but seeing the original color underneath the one you just applied. The same goes for your face, eyes and more! Primers help us to keep our color looking fresh and evenly applied all day long.

Some types of primers help to block sweat and oil, or hydrate and give some glow! Our e.l.f. Primer selection is endless and we even have color-correcting shades in case you're feeling dull or red. 

Study your primers and pick the right one for you! Let me know what your favorites are in the comments section, to get featured in an upcoming blog.

xoxo
Sonia
