Friday Favourites Giveaway Winner Reveal: Studio Cream Blush 'Heartbreaker'

Morning Guys

It's time to reveal the winner of last weeks Friday Favourites giveaway! 

On Friday we asked you all the 'Golden Question" What is your ultimate Must have Elf item? and we received lots of responses!

We loved reading all about your fave elf products but we especially liked Mrs Halloweens comment below.

So congratulations to Miss Halloween who will now receive the Elf Studio Cream Blush in Heartbreaker for her participation in our Friday Favourites Giveaway!

Studio Cream Blush in Heartbreaker
 "My must have ELF item would probably be the Stipple brush. Before purchasing it I always just used my fingers to blend my foundation but this little baby has changed my life! It's perfect for applying foundation or stippling on blush. The quality is OUTSTANDING for the price. It's so soft! I have 3 of them just in case one or two break so I never have to be without it :)" Mrs Halloween.

I think we're all guilty of stocking up on essentials to keep in random places! I for one will not be seen without a slick of lipgloss - hence why I always carry my Studio Glossy Gloss in my makeup bag and keep one at my desk and one in the car too just in case of lippy emergencies! 

Thanks for taking part in our weekly giveaway!

Please look out for our next one on Friday!

We'll be taking into account suggestions for the next blog giveaway so why not leave us a comment below to let us know which elf product you would like to see featured in the next Friday Favourites giveaway!

Best of British : Adele inspired look with Elf Cosmetics

Hi Guys

Did anyone else get makeup envy over Adele’s gorgeous look at the Brit Awards on Tuesday night!?

We were totally bowled over by her singing talent but her smokey eyes had us all rushing to the office cabinet fighting for the gunmetal shadows and flirty lashes!

Adele’s success at the Brit Awards 2012 made us feel super proud to be British and so to celebrate, e.l.f cosmetics is offering you guys a FREE SHIPPING Weekend, so you can all stock up on goodies to achieve Adele’s award winning look! We may not all be able to belt a good tune like she does but we can at least look as good!

We’ve recreated her look using products from the e.l.f Studio and Mineral Ranges. See how we did it below.

Products used:

How we achieved this look:

Step 1:

Use the Studio Tinted Moisturiser to even out the complexion and give your skin a radiant finish.

Step 2

Apply Primer to the lids to create a smooth canvas and base for applying the eye shadow.

Step 3

Take the e.l.f Eye Shadow Brush and apply Studio Pigment Eye shadow in Naughty Noire to the whole eyelid. Work the colour into the socket and along the crease line blending outwards to create a slight flick at the outer corners.

Step 4
Next using the Defining Eye brush apply Studio Matte Eye shadow in Charcoal to the outer corner of the eyes to shape them into a slight winged effect. Blend the colour into the socket line for a really defined and dramatic effect.

Step 5

Adele has used a white shadow in the inner corners of her eyes to really make them pop and add dimension to her look. Take the elf Eye Crease Brush and dot Studio Single Eye shadow in Sand Dollar to the inner corners of the eyes and blend outwards along the bottom lashes to create a bright-eyed look.

Step 6

To recreate Adele’s luscious, flicked out lashes we used Dramatic Lashes from the Flirty Eyelash Pallets set.

Step 7  

Once the lashes have set, line the eyes with Studio Cream Eyeliner in Black and create a flicked, wing at the outer edge of the eye for a more intense look. 

Step 8

Define the eyebrows using Studio Eyebrow Treat and Tame to groom your brows to perfection.

Step 9

Line the bottom lashes with e.l.f Shimmering Eyeliner in Black Bandit be careful not to line the whole of the bottom lash line as this will close the eyes making them appear smaller. Bring the liner in to about 1/3 in for best effect.

Step 10

Now we’re going to recreate those stunning cheekbones using e.l.f Studio Blush in Mellow Mauve. Sweep this gorgeous matte finish blusher along the cheekbones and apples to define them and give your face a radiant glow. We used the e.l.f Blushing, Bronzing and Blending Brush. 

Final Touch

Finally for Adele’s Gorgeous Pout we used Mineral Lipstick in Fiery Fuchsia to make the lips soft and supple with healthy pink tone.


We think our model (who also by the way goes by the name Adele..oh the irony!) looks great! What do you think?

That’s it guys! Thanks for reading we hope you liked it and will give it a go!
