WOMF // Toasted eyes, bright lip

Hi lovely! Hope you had a nice weekend? I started my new job, relaxed and went out with some friends Saturday - all in all a good one! Friday I posted a lippy post about my love for bright red lips and loads of you really loved the look of the ELF Matte Color Lip in Rich Red - which is more red in real life - so I thought I would create a WOMF for you where I use it. As I said in the post (Link here) I would post some wearing-the-lippy-pictures so here we go! 

I was of from school today so I had a HUGE practical list that needed to be done but I am one of those people who can't just get out of bed and wash the laundry - I have to get ready first! So even though it was a perfect no makeup kind of day I created a simple everyday look with a bright lip. 

I have already been food shopping, done the laundry and taken some blog post pictures so on this little break I am writing this post. I wanted the base to stay put all day so I used my Garnier BB Cream as a primer and topped it with ELF Flawless Finish Foundation in Sand - which by the way has a beautiful bottle - to get the perfect medium coverage base. The eyes are kept simple by only using ELF Baked Eyeshadow in Toasted, a bit of my Make Up Store Eyeliner and a mascara, of course, here I am trying out the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Show Off

I have always had some kind of complex with my brows but I am actually kind of liking them at the moment. So they needed some bold-ness and colour. The ELF Eyebrow Kit in Medium is kind of dark but I find it works OK. For cheeks I used the ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzing Cream in St. Lucia. Now, I thought I ordered the powder duo - the suppose NARS dupe - but no, I apparently ordered the cream one and the Blush is actually beautiful. To set it all I used ELF Makeup Mist & Set which I have to get use to using. 

All in all a quite ELF-y kind of day as I bought some last month which arrived last week - Haul will be up soon ;) 

What do you think of the look? Are you liking the red lip? 

Lots of love

  11. I love the look, I really do, I just don't like the way you apply your blush, tbh... I know there are the two camps in the beauty world, the one putting blush on the cheekbones and the other on the apples of the cheek but I'm really a full-heart member of the first.
    But, oh my god, your brows are beautiful! They have such a nice shape :D
