Jane Levy's Fall Face + Fall Eyes!
Jane Levy's Fall Face + Fall Eyes!
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 01, 2014

We've been all about fall trends recently, as we're sure you're well aware of by now! With so many great looks en vogue this season, it's easy to see how it can be difficult to pull off more than one great feature at a time. However, actress Jane Levy nailed two gorgeous fall trends at a recent red carpet premiere: A glowing, fresh face, and a perfect fall smoky eye! We've been loving how dewy, glowing face looks have transitioned so nicely from summer into fall this year. And if you've seen Sonia's gorgeous take on this season's best colors, Jane's smoky eye is right on target!

Want a quick shortcut to glowing skin this fall? Get it all in one step with our Studio Mineral Infused Primer in Radiant Glow! Next, after priming, top your eyelids with a lovely purple-gray color. Two great options from our Mineral Eyeshadow collection include Socialite and Smoldering. For extra definition, contour your crease with a matte brown shadow, such as Enchanting from our Mineral Eyeshadows. Our NEW Studio Crease Brush would be great for this step!

What do you think of Jane's double-duty fall face?

Would You Try? Kylie's Overdrawn Lip
Would You Try? Kylie's Overdrawn Lip
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2014

Even though she's only 17, Kylie Jenner has been faced with a lot of controversy lately over her trademark lips! It seems that many people believe the young starlet's lips are the result of plastic surgery! Of course, if you know a thing or two about the ins-and-outs of makeup, you know that altering your appearance is as easy as a few key products! In reality, Kylie's full lips are easily achieved through some lip lining tips. I tried overdrawing my lip liner, as Kylie does, at a recent event I went to, and I was shocked by how much naturally fuller my lips looked! It's a great, easy trick to change up your look. Here's how to try it:

1.) Start with clean, smooth lips! I like to use my Studio Lip Exfoliator to slough off any dried skin, followed by the Essential Soothing Lip Balm in Vanilla Creme.

2.) The key to this lip look is to prime! The easiest way is to use the Prime side of our Studio Lip Primer & Plumper, but you can also apply a thin layer of concealer over your lips as well. Try our Studio HD Lifting Concealer in your desired shade.

3.) Now for the tricky part, line your lips just barely outside your natural lip line with the Define side of our Studio Lip Definer and Shaper. You can also use the Shape side to trace above the line you just drew to emphasize your Cupid's bow.

4.) Lastly, fill in with your desired lip color! This look works best with very subtle, natural shades. My personal pick is our Studio Matte Lip Color in Natural.

See how simple it is to make your lips look so great? Will you try this trick?

e.l.f. halloween how-to: ENCHANTED
e.l.f. halloween how-to: ENCHANTED
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2014

Elfette, BE ENCHANTING this Halloween! Going for something trendy and pretty at the same time? My frosty eye look is definitely for you. Use these shadows as liners when Halloween is over! This e.l.f. Enchanted Halloween Beauty book is great for the holiday AND beyond.

STEP 1:  Work from top to bottom! Use the white eye liner provided to highlight the brow bone and the inner corners of the eye. Apply a generous amount for maximum light.

STEP 2: Apply the light blue shadow from the book all over your lids, with the e.l.f. Studio "C" Brush. 

STEP 3: Pick up a generous amount of the deep blue or purple shadow and apply to the edges of your lids. This will add dimesnion and depth to the color! I've used the e.l.f. Essential Defining Eye Brush to add and blend the color.

STEP 4: Using the white eyeliner again, create a beautiful stroke across your lash line. Keep it thin so it doesn't distract from the shadow. For Elfiettes with light hair, i suggest applying black liner first and then a line of white on top of it (as seen in photos). Using  tweezers, cut / measure / apply the lashes provided. 

STEP 5: Help to make the eye complete by smudging in some shadow on the lower lid. I've used the e.l.f. Essential Smudge Brush for this technique and the colors will easily blend into your skin.

STEP 6: Frosty pink is the perfect color for your lips in this look. The eyes are the star of the look, and the lips just compliment! Apply your gloss all over and use the most towards the center of the lip.

xoxo
Sonia

Rashida's Perfect Fall Lip!
Rashida's Perfect Fall Lip!
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2014

Rashida Jones is one of my favorite people in Hollywood. Not only because she's hilarious (How I miss her on Parks and Recreation!) but because she's so lovely and beautiful as well! Now that summer has officially come and gone (Remember, the Autumn Equinox was yesterday!) fall trends are officially in full swing. Last week, we showed you how to get a perfect fall lip, and that's why we're so excited to see it in play on Rashida at a recent event earlier this month. Say goodbye to your bright and perky summer pinks elfettes, this fall is all about pink in it's deepest, darkest form. This bold fuchsia looks incredible on Rashida; and paired with a very fresh face it's very much on-trend for fall.

If you haven't checked out Sonia's Color Report on Deep Pink Lips, which featured our Studio Matte Lip Color in Wine, Studio Glossy Gloss in Funky Fuchsia, and Studio HD Blush in Showstopper (Yes! Apply it with a lip brush, and the HD Blush makes a fantastic lip color too!), here are a few more of my recommendations for getting the perfect fall lip. If you want a gloss, my recommendations are our Essential Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick in Sangria Starters or the Essential EX-Tra Lip Gloss in Michael. If you'd prefer a sheer balm (Very fall!) try the Essential Lip Balm Tint in Berry or the Studio Conditioning Lip Balm in Blissful Berry. And if you want full coverage, try our Essential Lipstick in Posh or Essential Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Cherry Bomb. While they're also a tad on the red side, our Mineral Lipstick in Beautiful Berry and our Studio Moisturizing Lipstick in Ravishing Rose are also excellent options, maybe if pink just isn't your thing.

Do you love this lip color for fall?

Sara
