Hi Elfette! Are you looking for a unique, artistic face for halloween? My STARRY NIGHT look is sure to please you then! Who WOULDN'T want to look like a beautiful work of art? I did it all with the e.l.f. ENCHANTED BEAUTY BOOK! Check out the steps below to create this romantic eye.
Apply a generous layer of blue shadow to the lid, using the e.l.f. Studio "C" Brush and the e.l.f. Studio "Blending" Brush. I started with the lightest shades of blue and built my way up to something deeper.
Apply the lashes for a dramatic effect. Don't know how? Here's a tutorial for you on LASH APPLICATION. Then, follow with the e.l.f. Essential Glitter mascara, in small dots on the lid to create the stars. I used the tip of the mascara wand to apply the glitter.
The best part! Using the pencil liner from the Beauty book, begin to line your lashes. Once your line is as thick as desired, begin to get creative! Extend the line from your lid, upwards to the brow to connect. Then add more color and thicker lines to the "tree." Cover your whole brow and extend several "branches" from your brow.
Line your lower lid with black or any shaow from the "Enchanted" Beauty book.

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 LipWould You Try? Kylie's Overdrawn Lip

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:
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?

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.
