e.l.f. makeup party.

I hosted an e.l.f. makeup party for some of my nearest and dearest over the weekend. Oh, the good times we had. Mix together some cupcakes from Cupcake Chic {to die for}, flavored sparkling water {oh my!}, strawberries, a whole lot of makeup, & some of my best friends. Good, good times.

I broke it up into several stations: eyes, lips, face {get it, get it?}, nails, and eyebrows. It’s imperative to have an eyebrow station if you’re doing makeup; you don’t want to look like the missing link when you’re getting hot for the night.

Look at these gorgeous women. Some before & after shots for your viewing pleasure:

I have really hot family and friends. It’s a fact.

Thank you e.l.f., for the makeup; I don’t think these girls will need any more for the rest of the year. And to Melissa for styling the event, props. Cupcake Chic? My hips would like a word.

  1. erin nyc :

    so jealous… i heart e.l.f. and cupcakes.

  2. Mamma :

    I've been digging e.l.f. for quite some time. It's nice to be able to try out new things without feeling like you have to make a huge investment.

    Actually just placed an order the other day.

    Looks like fun!

  3. Petit Elefant :


    Isn't it great? Love the prices, totally affordable!

    Absolutely, I'm very friendly.

  6. Beth :

    Sometime in the nearish future I would like to be more social with my southern cousins :) We're still a little insane here at the mo' but I'm sure it will calm down in a month or two or ten.

  7. Petit Elefant :
