Guest Post: Revamp your Makeup Bag for Spring

We love nothing more than coming up with an excuse to have a nose through someone’s makeup bag. And we could think of no better excuse than having a cosmetic bag Spring Clean!

It’s no secret that one of our favourite bloggers is Natalie from Discoveries of Self blog (we have total beauty envy), which is why she was top of our list for Spring Clean tips on revamping makeup collections.

We asked Natalie to pick the e.l.f. products she’ll be revamping with this Spring season and here’s what she had to say…

Makeover your makeup

We all love Spring!

It comes with daffodils, blue skies and the promise of warmer weather. Spring also hails in the well-known Spring Clean, the time when we ditch the old and replace it with the brand spanking new and most times, improved.

One thing that I always make sure I Spring Clean is my makeup bag. Not only does it allow me to get rid of expired makeup (e.g. mascara and liner) it also allows me to replace the old with better and more suitable products.

Swatches of Spring Makeup e.l.f. Swatches

Some of the items that I’ll be adding to my makeup bag this Spring from e.l.f. include:

Smudge Pot in Brownie Points – One of my new favourite products for the eye area. Brownie Points is a gorgeous golden deep caramel colour that works so well, giving me an effortless and subtle smokey eye with ease. No brushes needed, just use your fingers to apply it to the lid. For a more intense look, use a black kohl pencil near your lash line and smudge it out with Brownie Points.

Studio Matte Lip Colour in Praline – When you want an easy nude lip this is a go to! Perfect for everyday wear, moisturising and so easy to apply to the lips. Matte lipsticks tend to be very drying but the Studio Lip Pencil is moisturizing without overloading your lips with sheen, giving you longevity as well as soft lips. A great addition to your makeup bag.

Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in Black – Love yourself some eyeliner? Well you’re gonna love this pen, rich in pigment and the fine pointed tip allows you to create a perfect flick in seconds. The waterproof formula also means this stays in place ALL DAY which is what I look for in an eyeliner. The slim line pen also fits neatly into my makeup bag! It’s a win all round!

Exact Lash Mascara – Perfect for giving your lower lashes special attention! I tend to only apply mascara to my top lashes and I forget the bottom but applying mascara to your bottom lashes can help you look more awake and bright eyed. The teeny wand from Exact Lash helps you to coat your lashes in mascara without those dreaded clumps making your lashes look noticeable but not overly dramatic.

Studio Blush Palette in Dark – I’d be more than happy to buy a bigger makeup bag to accommodate this gem! 4 extremely pigmented blushers that work so well against my skin tone, not to mention the endless possibilities if you were to mix the shades together. The palette provides you with 3 matte blushes perfect for everyday wear and one matte blush with a hint of shimmer for night wear. Easy to blend and buttery, just want I need from a blush!

Here’s the natural Spring-time look I created using these e.l.f. products…

  1. Thanks , I have recently been looking for information about this topic for a while and
    yours is the best I’ve found out till now. But, what in regards
    to the conclusion? Are you positive concerning the source?

  2. There are various categories that fall under the cosmetic surgery.
    Now compression technology is hitting the roads and the
    dirt, and compression calf sleeves were clearly all the rage att this
    August’s Gore-Tex Trans – Rockies Run. If this is the case, you
    wil ned to accommodate for hese different elevations and rework the pipe with
    fittings to accommodate for this difference.

  3. Excellent pieces. Keep posting such kiind of information on your page.
    Im really impressed by it.
    Hey there, You have done an incredible job. I will definitely digg it and individually recommend to my friends.
    I aam confident they’ll be benefited ffom this site.

  4. Hey!I just wanted to aask if you ever have any issues with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing many months of har work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to pprevent hackers?

  5. You are no more restricted to see movies at televisions
    or at theaters only, as now one has more options thn conventional ones.
    Eachh of tese humankind famous actors might take part in been otherwise unknown had it not been in favor of
    the amazing achievement and popuularity of Karate Movies,
    however both in his own way is iin part to blame in favor of the creation of the
    genre and bringing it into mainstream film theaters both in American and around the humankind.
    The storage capacity is large ‘ the Go – Pro HD Hero
    camera will accept up to a 32 GB SD memory card.

  6. t sden it, do yourself a favor and watch On Golden Pond.
    Find out what happens in this movie whre two popular actors are voice overs for these cartoons; Adamm Sandler and Selena Gomez.

    Why don’t you consiider a Kung fu Little one dress-up costume, or a Ghostbusters outfit, or perhaps Bacck
    to the near future costume.

  7. When choosing a clinic for plastic surgery, it is wise to learn how much experience the plastic surgeryspecialist or specialists have.
    Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel and are known for providing a
    more natural look and feel. They are frequently associated with breast
    augmentation and reduction surgery and are some of the more serious
    dangers of plastic surgery.

  8. Despite TMZ’s managing editor’s stated commitment to researchinng and vetting foor accuracy everything the site publishes-but knowing who
    butters its celeb bread-TMZ has already begun distorting the victim’s
    allegations. Fertris and hiss friends maje this one of the best days of
    their lives while getting into trouble along
    the way. It helps to reduce the effects of stress and give you a
    stronger immunity.

  9. I do it as a result of I am obsessed with it, because I bee taught from it, and
    since I amm innterested to see where I will get with
    it.

  10. t seen it, do yourself a favor and watch On Golden Pond.
    Among the celebrities present were actor Corey Feldman whoo played Mouth, thee older brother (Corey’s own rock band performed for the fans on one of the evenings), Jeff Cohen, who played “Chunk” (he’s a big-timer
    now as a high powered attorney to the stars in Los Angeles),
    director Richard Donner (who went on to direct the Lethal Weapon movies,
    among others), and of course, Sean Astin. A ratag group of young misfits are
    what they call tthe Goonies.

  11. At first look I wasn’t sure if the socks would provide enough squeeze,
    especially compared to my CEP Running Compression Socks which grip my calves like
    a python. The compression then prohibits fluid from reurning to
    the site. If this iis the case, you will need to accommodate
    for these different elevations and rework the pipe with fittings to
    accommodate ffor this difference.

  12. you’re really a just right webmaster. The website loading speed is amazing.
    It kind of feels that you’re doing any unique
    trick. Also, The contents are masterwork. you have done a wonderful process in this subject!

  13. I’ve been exoloring for a litttle bit for any high quality articles
    or weblog posts in this kind of area . Exploring in Yahhoo I ultimately stumbled upon tjis
    web site. Studyiing this information So i am happy to express that I’ve an incredibly
    good uncanny feeling I discovered exactly what I needed.
    I most surely will make sure to don?t forget this site annd provides it a glance regularly.

  14. Despiite TMZ’s managing editor’s stated commitment to researching and vetting for accuracy everything the site publishes-but knoaing who butters its celeb bread-TMZ hhas already begun distortng the victim’s allegations.
    Ferris and his friends make this one of the besst days of their lives while etting into
    trouble along the way. It helps to redyce tthe
    effects off stress and give you a stronger immunity.

  15. Guest phones located in hallways and lobbies should not
    allow direct room dialing, so anyone using the phone
    should have to call the operator and request a room by
    guest name, not room number. Not if you know how to restore all
    of this information from a backup copy. Nevertheless, building
    administrators must always ensure that the equipment pieces are also properly working, to avoid greater risks.

  16. At first look I wasn’t sure iff the socks would provide enough squeeze, ewpecially compared to my CEP Runing
    Comptession Socks which grip my calves like a python. In order to preserve the pipes, they should be giuven a waterproof masking and also separating valves should be
    attached. They may stretch from the fingertips to the wrist, elbw or shoulder, depending on the
    model and style.
