Recently I was sent about 200 temporary tattoos from the Violent Lips company to review and to spread the word on. At first I was extremely skeptical, but excited to try them. My initial reaction was, WOW! They are not disappointing! It took a few tries to get it right, but once I got the hang of them, I have to say I would recommend them to EVERYONE. They really do last 4-8 hours with eating and drinking, and I love how cool and funky they look. Personally I would not wear them everyday to school, but on a day out with friends, or especially around Halloween (perfect timing!) they complete any extreme look! If you are looking for something fun and creative to try, check these out at your local Sephora, or online. Have fun!

Hi there! I created this look because I wanted a very simple, extrememely wearable look with some bolder eyeliner than I usually go for, so I decided to use my e.l.f cream liner in black with a matte black eyeshadow from my e.l.f. palette for the liner. For the shadow I first applied my MAC paint pot in painterly, then adding a beigey-champagne color from Lancôme, then finishing off with a golden color from my e.l.f. palette. For highlight I used the shimmery white from my e.l.f palette (as you can probably tell I am OBSESSED with e.l.f, as a student I am always on a beauty budget!) and finished off the look with a Willi Smith pink lipgloss. I hope you liked this look, and please excuse the horrific photo quality, backgrounds and....really everything about the photos! I am still figuring out what angles, lights and background work the best! Thanks for reading, and have fun!

e.l.f. Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands of makeup because they are so cheap but for the most part are actually very good quality. There used to be some problems with their shipping taking between 2-4 weeks to arrive, but since they have updated their shipping and are now very prompt. My last order came within 4 days of ordering! I have never not liked a product from either their mineral or studio lines, and for the most part their $1 essential products are pretty amazing, though all makeup is a matter of preference and opinion and everyone's skin is different. I highly recommend trying e.l.f if you are looking for good quality inexpensive makeup, or if you are a beginner and need tons of products, e.l.f has everything you could need!
have fun! :)
