A Little Color Goes A Long Way

Lipstick.....check
Eye Shadow....check
Blush....check

E.L.F's All Over Color Stick is all of that. Just think
about all the space you'll save in your makeup bag...

It may only come in four colors(see below), but the colors are
vividly neutral(is that an oxymoron?) enough to wear all over
your face. The color sticks leave you with a shiny color and
a moist, dewy complexion. My favorites are Pink Lemonade
and Lilac Petal which are shades that look best with my
skintone. But if I want bronzer, I go with Toasted.



Just use your fingers to blend in softly, be careful as to use
just a little because you can go overboard. Here are a few ideas
I like. All of the products are from E.L.F.

Day Look
Start with Sheilding Hydro-tint SPF and rub gently into
your skin for moisture and sun protection. Then use All Over
Color Stick in Lilac Petal
and gently smooth it over your eye
lids with your fingers. After that, go ahead and line your eyes
with Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner* or Waterproof Eyeliner
Pen
in Coffee. Then use All Over Color Stick in Persimmon
for your cheekbones. Then finish of with Hypershine Lipgloss in
Vixen
for a perfect pout.


Night Look
Start with Tone Correcting Concealer. Gently blend into
the spots you want covered, there is not need for a lot of makeup
on your face(escpecially if you go to a restaurant or club which
may have bad lighting). For your eyes, use All Over Color Stick
in Persimmon
and gently blend it on your eye lids and onto
your crease, line your eyes with Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner*
or Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in Black. Use Natural Radiance
Blush in Bronzed
, and finish withAll Over Color Stick in Pink
Lemondade
