FOTD, and My ELF 'Must Haves'

So, I'm struggling to get to grips with blogger! And I chose a busy time of year to start a blog! The build up to Christmas as a mum is madness.

A friend asked me what I would reccommend from ELF, and I use quite a few of their products on a day to day basis. These are my 'Go to' products:

ELF Flawless Finish Foundation
ELF Mineral Booster in Sheer
Collection 2000 Last Perfection Concealer
ELF Studio Blush in Candid Coral
ELF Cream Eyeliner in Gunmetal

I have only started using foundation very recently, I found myself really wacking on the concealer and thought it was high time I bought foundation! ELF is so cheap that I could try one and not be too bothered if it wasn't for me, this was £6.50 and I bought it on one of their 50% off events. I find I have to work fast with it, otherwise it's hard to blend in. I use a my fingers and then my ELF powder brush to blend and buff it. I'm not sure what colour I have, but I think I must go darker next time. That is the problem with buying online, I suppose, it's just guess work.

The ELF Mineral Booster seems to 'set' my base make up, and make it last longer. I also use my powder brush to apply this.

ELF studio blush in Candid Coral is my favourite blush. I find myself wearing this a lot. And I've hit the pan. *mental note made to buy another*

The Gunmetal cream eyeliner is a new one to my list. I'm such a eyeliner novice its untrue. However, this is SO easy to apply, the little brush it comes with helps with that. It lasts all day long.

If I had one brush in my life it would be the ELF Studio Powder Brush, I love it. This is a must!

Here's an FOTD photo with all products together. My boys were creating bloody murder over Buzz Lightyear in the background, possibly thats why I'm frowning! ;)

I also used L'oreal 4D Lash Architect Mascara and coloured the gaps in my brows with my Primark Eyebrow kit. On my lips I have Carmex as they're so dry right now, I've noticed the cold is hitting me hard this year!

What are your 'go to' products?

Thanks for reading :) x
