Jess Reviews ... elf Beauty Book 48 Eyeshadow Colours

Happy New Year beauties, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!

To start off the year, I tried out the elf beauty book, a palette of 48 eyeshadows - this would be a perfect new addition to any makeup collection to use to create different looks throughout the whole year!

I decided to do a soft purple smokey eye, to try and bring out the green tones in my eyes. The range of colours in the palette is amazing, I love that there are so many different shades for each colour, and the pigmentation is really good!

To start off, I didn't use any eyeshadow base, just my elf primer followed by foundation and powder.

To create my smokey eye, I used the palest purple shade all over my lids and right up to my brow bone. I then took the darkest purple on a small angled brush and created a cut crease, which I blended out to give a softer smokey effect. I found that these shadows blended super smoothly, I had no trouble at all getting them to fade into each other.

Next, I used a shimmery charcoal shadow to slightly darken my crease, before using a few of the mid toned purple shades to soften the crease over my lids. I finished with black liquid eyeliner and plenty of mascara to give definition.

This palette could be used for so many different styles, I can't wait to try it out on my best friends blue eyes! I am sure I will be using it plenty over the months to come!

Have a great week girls!

The information is very interesting. I do have a similar blog Hairdressers in Rockhampton with a motto to give quality suggestions and advises to my readers. I would like to re post it in my blog. Would you mind granting me permission?
