I’m very excited to finally share with you the details of my recent collaboration with e.l.f. Cosmetics UK. They sent me a box containing some of their beautiful makeup to try out and to inspire me to create an illustration. E.l.f. was kind enough to send me two sets, one for me and one for my followers, so keep reading if you want to know how to win their gorgeous products.

The eyeshadows, blush and lipstick are part of their mineral line of products that are parabens and chemicals free. The colors are respectively natural, caffeinated, bliss and rosy which I thought would be perfect for a fresh/natural type of look.

… and this is the final result!¬†What do you think of this look? I love it because it’s so light and natural and it’s something that can be worn everyday.

If you want to win a set of e.l.f.’s make up all you have to do is find a title for the look I created with my illustration and simply write it down in the comments. I will choose my favorite title and the winner will receive a set of one mascara, one nail polish, one blush, two eyeshadows and one lipstick.

Competition ends January 24th 2015.

I hope you enjoyed this post!
