It’s our birthday and we’ll do makeup if we want to! Are you ready to get your face on to celebrate our 10 years of FABULOUS? Today I’m showing you a day-time appropriate look that will be sure to go with any ensemble and anywhere…work, school, or a day out with your special someone. In our case… makeup for the e.l.f. birthday party at the office! Follow my steps here to get Maria’s look:


Get that beautiful face even and radiant with the Flawless Finish Foundation and Essential Foundation Brush.


You know this is my favorite step EVER… adding a little highlight to your cheeks with the Shimmering Facial Whip and the Flawless Concealer Brush! I love when my models GLOW! Especially on a birthday like this one 🙂


Apply a base color to your lids like one of the Smudge Pots in Ain’t That Sweet or Pearls of Wisdom, using the “C” Brush in a patting and blending motion. Light lids will give you light in your eyes!


Add some color to the edge of your eyes too. Try the color “Back to Basics” in the Smudge Pots and blend with the Eye Contour Brush.


Pop open those big, bright eyes with the right liner application. The inner rim should be lighter… you can use the Eye Widener to achieve the doe-eyed look. Then fill in your lash line with a deeper shade to emphasize and contrast the white! I’m in love with the Mineral Eye Liner for this purpose. Don’t forget to layer the mascara- my favorite is the mineral Infused, for its brush size and effects.


Get those cheeks flushed with a wet sponge and a small drop of the HD Cream Blush. Gently apply and blend in a light pink shade like “Headliner.” Finish off your look with a gloss to give your lips that candy-coated feeling! I’ve used the Shimmer Gloss in Twinkle Pink.

Tell me about your last birthday and what e.l.f. product you used! I want to feature YOU!
