ELF Haul + Blue Smokey Eye

*Hi Beautiful PL's*

Today we will be discussing makeup and I will show you how to create a Blue Smokey Eye!! (Double the FUN) I have really been perfecting my craft lately and wanted to share with you where to find inexpensive products that are great for beginners. (If you would like a full list please email) If you are new to wearing makeup or living on a budget Eyes Lips Face Cosmetics is the perfect product line for you! They were the first makeup products I purchased when I was in highschool and I continue to purchase them. I will warn you that they do not have a wide variety of foundation shades for deep skin tones. That is the only thing I wish they would change or add. Besides that they are great for lip products, blushes, eyeshadows, tools and etc.

 The total of this haul only cost $12! The prices per piece range from $0.40 to $2.00. Yes they are that cheap and the products are good quality for the price. I hope you enjoy this ELF Haul! XOXO

Lip Products: Pink Lemonade | Cherry Tart | Maple Sugar
Lashes: Natural
Nail Polishes: Coral Dream | Jazzy Berry | Cranberry | Mahogany

Custom Compact with Mirror -The compact is perfect for travel and a place to put your four favorites shadows. 

The shadows have magnetic strip on the back. You can purchase the compact from ELF or place the pans in your Z palette. I created my own custom compacts below.

Below is a presentation of how well the shadows blend and the pigmentation. Enjoy!

Blue Smokey Eye
Step 1: Apply Teal over lid and blend your life away. Lol. Do not carry over the crease.

Step 2: Apply Moon Dust in crease, blend, blend blend in small circular motions. 
Step 3: Apply Navy into outer V area. Yes, blend some more. You do not want to see where the blue and navy meet. 

(For some reason the shadow looks green here)
Step 4: Apply black liner. I applied a wing but it is not mandatory.
Step 5: Apply Navy to the bottom and blend out with Moon Dust.

Step 6: Apply Mascara to top and bottom lashes. 


Finished Look
