Summer is almost here elfettes! Are you excited? We definitely are and want to get you into gear with some fun color options for special events or just to play with! Leslie looks bright and bold with this shadow and we have some easy steps for you to get her look:

STEP 1: Apply your foundation using a sponge, brush or hands. I used the e.l.f. Studio Mattifying Cream Foundation all over her face. I chose this because it’s great for oily skin and/or if you need long wear without smudging. Try the Studio Eye Primer and Line Sealer to keep your lids from creasing up!

STEP 2: Using the e.l.f. Essential Eye Shadow Brush, I applied a bright, turquoise color from the Little Black Beauty Book in Cool. Can you believe this book of shadows is only $6.00?! I was thrilled to use this since the pigments are gorgeous… and all of the colors are SO perfect for summer.

STEP 3: A soft blush or bronzer is the way to go with such a bold eye. I wanted to make sure her eyes stood out the most and everything else (lips/cheeks), only accent. I used the Mineral Pressed Blush in Sweet Retreat, for a light, peachy effect.

STEP 4: Matte Lip Color is another thing to consider when you’re using most of the color on your eyes. It allows for less distraction in the overall look. I thought Praline would be the best choice to go along with her soft cheeks.

What’s your favorite summer color?
