2014 Holiday Party Look = Simple

I'm still in the rarely-wears-makeup-anymore camp, so I wanted to go for a full face for my office holiday party this year. Creativity with makeup comes naturally when I wear it daily, but since I'm only an occasional user these days even classic looks can seem like "too much makeup" on me. My dress is mostly white with black accents (and rhinestones!) so I felt I was giving off a Snow White vibe. Rather than plan a look to elaborate the theme, I just grabbed my e.l.f. Snow White Beauty Book and followed their tutorial. Quite lovely, no?

Other products used:

Some silicone primer I got in a subscription box a year ago (forgot the brand - obscure. e.l.f. mineral   primer is about the same, I just didn't have a bottle open).

Wet'n'Wild Cover All Cream Foundation in 816 Fair/Light

e.l.f. hd concealer in fair

beauty blender sponge (forgot how much I love these!)

e.l.f. pressed mineral foundation in light (I love this, it blurs pores like loose mineral foundations do).

e.l.f. studio tone correcting powder in cool

e.l.f. lengthening & defining mascara (I was going to use Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara but I'll be damned if one month into using it the bottleneck that scrapes off the excess broke! Cheap mascara FTW!)

Hmm, that's it.  Like $35 in makeup. Would have been over $50 with the Too Faced mascara, but I don't think I'll be buying that again (sadface). Would definitely buy that e.l.f. gloss in Brett from the Snow White Beauty Book again - such a pretty pink-red!


  1. I love this look! So pretty and simple! I hope you had fun!

  2. So so late to see this post, but I have to say you look gorgeous!

    1. Thanks, Lena! I'm glad you're back to blogging :)
