I titled this post the e.l.f. Golden Goddess Look because I used the e.l.f. Golden Goddess eyeshadow quad for my eyes. This is by far my favorite eyeshadow that I've gotten from e.l.f... I've actually been disappointed by the other palettes I've gotten but that's for another day.
These are all of the products I used. Except the blush. I forgot to photograph that but I used e.l.f.'s baked blush.
Lipstick: e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick in Cheeky. This is my favorite lipstick at the moment. It is a pearly/frosty rosey bronze and it is so pretty.
Bronzer: e.l.f. Essential Bronzer in the shade "Sun Kissed." I'm kind of meh about this product.
Foundation: Tarte Amazonian Clay full coverage foundation. I LOVE this stuff. It has amazing coverage, feels super light on your skin and it is a mineral foundation and contains no chemicals which I love. Really great product! My shade is "fair beige."
Concealer: e.l.f. Maximum Coverage Concealer in the shade "Porcelain." I really like this product a lot, it does a pretty good job hiding my insanely dark circles under my eyes.
Mascara: Tarte Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara. This was a free sample with my Tarte purchase and it is AMAZING! I love the way it makes my lashes look. It does an amazing job lengthening and separating my lashes. Love this product a lot.
Eyeshadow: e.l.f. Essential Flawless Eyeshadow in Golden Goddess. This is by far my favorite eyeshadow by e.l.f. I've had problems with my Baked Eyeshadow Palette and the large palette I got because there is tons of fallout and it gets really messy but this one isn't too bad. And the colors are gorgeous.
Setting Powder: Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder. Another sample from Tarte and another great product. There is so much product in it for a sample too! It does a really great job setting my concealer and foundation.
I swatched the eyeshadows that I used so you can see what they look like. Aren't they gorgeous?! The far left is the shadow located at the top of the quad in the photo and is a beautiful shimmery champagne color. I used this as my inner corner highlight and my brow highlight. The middle shade is the second shadow from the top of the quad and I used that on the inner 2/3 of my lid. It is a gorgeous metallic gold shadow. So beautiful. The far right shadow is a beautiful metallic copper shade and I used that for my crease and outer 1/3 of my lid.
Here is the finished look. I'm still not great at eyeliner so I didn't use any since I was going out and didn't have time to play around with it. How pretty is that lip color?!
You can tell how great the mascara is in this photo I think. It makes a huge difference in the look of my eyes. I know the Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara is the popular Tarte Mascara but I really like this one.
Close up of my eye :X It is a little out of focus but it's kind of difficult to get this shot yourself, ha! It's a subtle look I think but I really like it. I'm going to start playing with color soon and see how that works out.
I also tried out another one of the e.l.f. Essential Nail Polish colors. This color is "Garnet" and it is GORGEOUS! This is perfect for the upcoming holiday season. It is a rich burgundy color and really stunning. There are a lot of negative reviews for these nail polishes and I don't know why. The formula is really great, the coverage is great and the five colors I got are gorgeous. They lasted about 5 days before I got my first chip in the Copper color which I think is pretty great for a $1 bottle of nail polish. The only thing I agree with is that some of the swatches for the colors are completely horrible and misleading but I was still incredibly happy with the ones I got. I expected this to be more red but I'm definitely still satisfied with what I got. I still definitely recommend this product... maybe just google image search some real swatches of the colors before you order them. From my understanding the teal color is actually a Kelly Green which would annoy me, ha!
So there you have it! I don't think I'll have one of these posts every Sunday but I will do the best I can! I hope you have all had an amazing weekend!
