Eyes Lips Face (e.l.f.) is a staple of mine…the products are cheap, well made, and the brushes compete with my MAC brushes…and in some instances, trump them!  Below is a list of my recommendations and favorites.

Fashion Rebel: American Gypsy 

  Gypsy Personified: as I am an American Gypsy, I was inspired by New Age & Occult Symbolism, referencing the pop culture notion of the Gypsy.

Neo Nineties: Reinventing Retro

Red Eyeshadow Dare: Red Cateye

Given red eyeshadow is said to be the hardest to apply- I decided to challenge myself and did a pink-red ombré red cateye. I used an e.l.f. Palate and a Mac 219SE brush, then lined with Sormé Cosmetics Beverly Hills in Charcoal 10.

No Make-up Make-Up

I applied only under eye highlighter in an upside down triangle, no foundation, and eyeliner and NYC Eye Shimmer. The outfit is my Stryker harness, laser cut sheer button-up, Diesel Gold Black shiny black jeans, and spiked shoes.
