I've been wanting to try some new makeup techniques lately so I was VERY excited when I discovered e.l.f Cosmetics at Meijer this week. Basically it is a very affordable line of all sorts of cosmetics from foundation to eye shadow. They even have makeup brushes. Everything (at least at Meijer) was $3 or under and most items were $2 and under. I was ecstatic because when I'm trying out new things that I may only use one or two times I don't want to have to shell out the big bucks!
So I picked up an eye shadow smudging brush, a four-pack of coordinating eye shadow, and some eye shadow primer for $4 total. Um yeah, I can handle that! So I got home, waited for my little man to go down for a nap and I got to work trying to imitate a "smoky" look I'd seen on Pinterest. And, I failed. Miserably. Instead of "smoky" I somehow ended up with "racoon". Oh well, practice makes perfect so they say!
