I’m not one to wear eyeshadow during the week - I seem to have mastered a daily full face with black winged liner and lashings of mascara in an impressive 10 minutes before heading out the door to work. However, on weekends when I tend to have a little extra time to get ready, I like to reach for a palette with an assortment of colours (neutral, colourful & dark). I have had this particular ELF 6-colour cool palette in my collection for a while now, and seem to gravitate towards it for all occasions. In terms of daily wear I always opt for neutral tones, whereas when heading out for dinner or a planned night out with the girls, I usually opt for the darker shades (greys and blacks) for a more dramatic look and often add a pop of colour in my bottom waterline.
ELF cosmetics sell high quality, extremely pigmented, and on-trend items for those on a budget. (They pride themselves on providing customers with quality cosmetics at affordable prices). I find it a great way of experimenting with makeup techniques and/ or colours before splurging on a hyped and popular high-end brand. This palette is particularly shimmery (which I love), but they do sell a variety of matte shades on their online website too. The shadows are extremely soft in texture, but do not crease or fade when applied directly to the lids without the use of a primer.
I now have my eye on the new Studio Matte Lip Colours which are a jumbo sized lip pencil! What are you ELF Cosmetics favourites?
