Cheap Makeup for New Year’s Eve from e.l.f.

The makeup your wear on New Year’s Eve is just as important as your outfit.  As always, I’m a big advocate of looking glam for less.  So e.l.f. Cosmetics (Eyes, Lips, Face) is a great option for any budget fashionista.

Most of the cheap makeup brand’s items range from  $1- $10, and all of e.l.f.’s mineral makeup is completely free of chemical dyes, preservatives, and parabens (preservatives that have been linked to breast cancer).  

Even Oprah has crowned the thrifty beauty finds as one of her favorite things; O Magazine featured e.l.f.’s limited edition Studio Endless Eyes Pro Eyeshadow Palette ($10) in its December issue. With 100 fun shades, a mirror, and two double-sided eyeshadow applicators, this kit gives you endless options. It's too bad the kit is currently out of stock, but it should be back soon.

Another great tool to kick your festive makeup up a notch is e.l.f.’s  Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil ($1).  The metallic pencil was featured in People Style Watch and comes in a variety of pretty colors like Iconic Ivory, Precious Pink, Boldly Bronzed, and Black Bandit. For only $1 each, you’ll be tempted to get all nine shades.

e.l.f. Eyelash Curler, $1
Recently I interviewed a makeup artist for her holiday makeup tips, and she recommended using an eyelash curler to create a dramatic look.  E.l.f. makes a Mechanical Eyelash Curler ($1) I found at my favorite 99 cents superstore, so I couldn’t resist.  I’ll try it out before I hit the town (or my sofa to watch the ball drop) and let you know how it works.

While I’ve given you a few tips on how to get dolled up for New Year’s Eve, e.l.f. has a complete look already mapped out on its website.  You can purchase the entire look, which includes 2 in 1 Conditioning Gloss ($3), Shimmering Facial Whip ($1), and the 27 Piece Mini Makeup Collection ($27).

    They have an amazing sturdy 24K gold metal curler similiar to the Shu Uemura and Sheisdo one that comes with its own seperate pink small heater base that heats just the pad in the curler, this way my curl lasts till the next day.
