  • Elf blending brush
  • Elf C brush
  • Color workshop flat blending brush
  • Color workshop Stippling/Blending Brush
  • Elf Contour brush
  • Color workshop blush brush
Get The Look:
  • Apply your face primer before you start to apply your eye-shadow primer that way it would have sunken into your skin and your will be ready for you to apply your foundation. 
  • Apply an eyeshadow primer or if you don't have one apply a concealer and go over it with a bit of powder.
  • Begin by placing a white eyeliner on your lid and blending it over your lid, this will help make the color pop more than a primer will do on its own.
  • Now taking your eye-shadow brush place a white color in the inner corner of your lid. Pat the color on your eye, this will help make the color a bit more intense.
  • Wipe your brush and then place a lime green eye-shadow next to the white. Don't forget to blend.
  • Apply green glitter over the green. I used Smashing Pots.
  • Now taking an angled blending brush blend the purple into the green and into the crease.
  • Using your flat blending brush place some purple on your lower lash line in the outer corner and place yellow in the inner corner and blend inwards.
  • Using a crease brush I blended a light Pink into the purple as well as applied it under the lashes.
  • Using a different brush take a color close to you skin color and being to highlight under your brow. 
  • Now begin to line your eyes with a black eyeliner and then add some mascara. You can add fake lashes if you want for extra drama.
  • Using a stippling brush apply your foundation to your face.Blend it in and remember to put some on your neck.
  • Next apply a powder to set in your foundation. For this I used the stippling brush.
  • Taking a contour brush and elf bronzing powder begin to contour your face, place it at the hollows of your cheek, temples, both sides of your nose (optional) and along your jaw line. This of course if optional and it will make your face appear slimmer.
  • Now using your blush brush begin to apply a blush to the apple of your cheeks. 
  • I applied Hint to the lips, which is a dark pink with shimmer in it and went over it with Studious, a light pink.
