Seductive Silver Tutorial Featuring Elf Cosmetics (Elf Baked Eyeshadow Palette NYC)
I love this look so much! Silver eyeshadow has been flooding runways left and right, so I HAD to do play around with what silver eyeshadow I had! I hope that you guys enjoy this look as much as I do...I'll be wearing this often. PRODUCTS: Elf Baked Eyeshadow Palette in NYC Elf Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in Celebration Elf Precision Liquid Eyeliner Elf Eyelid Primer in Champagne Elf Mineral Infused Mascara Elf Mascara Primer Elf Studio Kohl Eyeliner Elf Mineral Lipstick in Rosy Tan Elf Mineral Lip Liner in Peachy Elf Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia Step 1: Prime your eyelids to make sure that your eyeshadow will have badass staying power as well as awesome color pigmentation. Step 2: Take Elf's Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in Celebration and apply over the entire eyelid. Step 3: Using Elf's Baked Eyeshadow Palette in NYC, apply the light silver shade directly over the Long lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow. Step 4: Using the Baked Eyeshadow Palette, apply the dark silver to the outer edge of your eyelid as well as the crease. blend well. Step 5: Using the Baked Palette, apply the golden white shade onto your brow bone for the highlight. (I actually applied this step after a few other steps when taking the pictures due to the fact that I couldn't decide which shade I wanted for the brow bone! So sorry if seeing the eyeliner messes up the continuity.) Step 6: Using Elf's Cream Eyeliner in Black, line the upper lash line. Use a small brush to get in between the lashes, to make them look a bit fuller. Step 7: Use Elf's Precision Liquid Eyeliner and apply over the cream eyeliner. I find that this product helps my "wings" look fantabulous. (I'm honestly no good at liquid eyeliner, but the brush is very thin and easy to control. I like that so much!) Step 8: Line your water line using Elf's Kohl Eyeliner. Step 9: Using Elf's Mascara Primer, Coat those bad boys once or twice...depending on how much "Oomph" you want to achieve! Step 10: Now to top off those sexy "come hither" eyes! Apply one to two coats of Elf's Mineral Infused Mascara working from the root of your lashes in an upward zig-zag motion to seperate the lashes and give them added lift and volume! Step 11: Pucker up, Buttercup! Line your lips using Elf's Mineral Lip Liner in Peachy. If you want extra volume for a fuller pout, color in your lips using the lip liner before applying the lipstick. Step 12: Apply Elf's Mineral Lipstick in Rosy Tan,(Beautiful shade!!!)and blot on a piece of tissue if needed. Step 13: Using Elf's Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia, apply a very small amount of bronzer to your cheekbones, jawline, hairline, and anywhere else you normally contour. I say to use a small amount because this stuff is VERY pigmented. A little really does go a long way! Step 14: Using the blush shade from the compact, apply a small amount on the apples of your cheeks and blend backwards and upwards towards your hairline. FINISHED LOOK: Tadaaa! I hope that you guys enjoyed this tutorial! What do you guys think? Have any of you tried these products? If so, what are your opinions on the products? I'd love to hear what you think!
