Makeup Tips and Reviews: An Amazing Affordable Eyesahdow Palette


By Samantha Casano

e.l.f. Cosmetics is one of the most affordable brands on the beauty market. Although they are known because of their low prices, over the past few years, e.l.f. has expanded their line and come out with a plethora of products that are definitely comparable to high-end beauty items. Today, I will be teaching you how to do a simple glam eyeshadow look with e.l.f.’s Nude Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette.

Begin by priming your eyes with an eyeshadow base to get rid of any discoloration.

Begin by taking the third shade from the left, that warm light brown, and sweep it back and forth across the crease of your eyes. This will add depth and definition to your eyes.

To add even more depth and definition to the eyes, take the matte mauvey brown four shades from the left and apply it deeper into the crease in that outer v area with a more defined brush. A darker outer v gives the illusion of a more sunken crease area.

For the lid, take the shimmery light pink and apply it all over the inner half of your lid. This will really help brighten the eyes. Finally, take the shimmery rose gold and apply it to the outer half of your lid.

Apply liner and lashes, as desired, and voilá, your simple glam eyeshadow look is complete.

The e.l.f. Nude Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette retails for $10 at drugstores. Overall, I really enjoy this palette and think it is definitely worth the small price point.
