When it comes to make-up, I pretty much shoot for the natural look. Even though I don't wear that much I still found myself spending a lot of money on make-up like every three months, and it just wasn't fitting in my budget anymore.  Luckily for me I was recommended e.l.f, eyes lips face, by my mom.  She swore by it, and said it wasn't that expensive.  She got me a few things to try out, and I loved it. 
Some of my favorites: {1. Tinted Moisturizer} { 2. Under eye concealer and highlighter} {3. Mineral Foundation set} { 4. Pink lemonade all over color stick} { 5. Cream eyeliner} {6. Volume plumping mascara}
Tinted moisturizer, what a wonderful idea. Get to hide those blemishes, and protect my skin from the sun, perfect for trips to the pool/beach.  I love the under eye concealer because it doesn't just hide dark under-eye circles, it also highlights your eyes giving you a refreshed look.  The mineral foundation is awesome because it's very lightweight and easy to apply, and then there is my favorite piece of all time, the all over color stick. I have pink lemonade which is a very pinky pink. It's great as a highlight on my cheek bones and a little splash of color on the lips.  Perfect to throw in your clutch for a night out on the town or a day out with the girls.  The cream eyeliner is super easy to apply and I wear the brown because it's not quite so in-your-face.  And the absolute necessity (for me especially because my eyelashes are blonde) is the mascara.  Love the volume it gives my lashes!

I used to think e.l.f was only online, which wasn't too big of a deal because they have awesome sales and promotions going on-- all the time. However, I was visiting Alex in Atlanta and noticed they had a super target, which is already pretty awesome.  But it got even better, they had an entire e.l.f. section! It was so amazing, and not to mention everything featured above was $3 dollars or less. Yeah, it was that good.

Wanna look good on a budget? Check out e.l.f.


  1. I haven't tried anything from Elf, because it's only available online over here, and I have some kind of weird issue with ordering make-up online. But I'm going to the US on vacation next week, I'll keep my eyes open :)

    Take care!
