E.L.F makeup is sort of like Forever 21 clothing. You don’t expect to use it forever and it’s about as cheap as it gets so you’re not too upset if it breaks. You also find a gem sometimes that’s both beautiful and well made. It doesn’t hurt that it was a fraction of what you’d usually have to pay. E.L.F. has these gems in their collection and I’d like to share some of my favorites if you’d be so kind to join me.
Studio Eyeliner, $3
I use gel to line my lids, but for inside waterline these pencils are just as good as any others except they’re only $3. It’s also important to note that E.L.F. does have sales regularly, I remember I got these for $1.50 each. That’s pretty hard to beat.
Blush Palette, $6
This is perfect for travel, when you never can be too sure which variation of pink will be the right one (it never is the one you brought). These blushes come out to $1.50 each which is a score in my book. The powder is also soft; it performs just like any of my high end blushes.
Golden Bronzer, $3
This is another must-have for travel. Each quadrant is big enough that you can dip into one individually, which means you have two bronzing shades, one highlight shade, and one pinky blush. You can also mix them together to get a really glowy bronze look. Again, I find the quality to be pretty similar to my high end powders.
This super fine powder is perfect to set your under eye area and add some coverage. When I wear this, I don’t even use concealer because this does the trick. If you go overboard, you will look like a caked up mess. I always use MAC’s Fix+, which takes away the cakey look and I’m good to go. When used in moderation, though, it’s perfect to make the triangles under your eyes matte – I hate for that area to be shiny or glow. My Becca and Laura Mercier setting powders have been collecting dust lately.
There you have it! Let me know what some of your favorites are as well, I’m always happy to replace my expensive make up items with inexpensive alternatives. Thanks for reading!
All The Best,
