Get to Know the ELF!

I'm not talking about a Christmas elf, though it could be just as exciting!

For the wedding, I hired a woman named Bev Kaneshige to do my hair and makeup. I found her through a reference, and I thought she was phenomenal! When she finished with my trial the day before the wedding, Jim looked at me and said, "You need to do your makeup like that everyday!" Geez, thanks, honey! But, truthfully, I am attempting this very difficult task.

Anyway, she said that one of her secrets was using E.L.F.

ELF stands for Eyes Lips and Face. It is a makeup company that sells products SUPER CHEAP!! And, I figured, if it was good enough for a professional makeup artist (who also works with a lot of pageant girls and TV anchors), if my hubby likes it, AND it saves us money, WHY AM I NOT USING IT?

OH, I forgot to mention, most things cost $1.

Wh-wh-what? Eyelashes, eye shadow, eyeliner, bronzer, blush, lipstick, nail polish... all cost just a dollar. Mineral make up is a little more, but it's like $2.

I ordered mine online and am so happy. I feel like this is the best makeup tip of the year, and that's saying a lot because I'm a dedicated MAC user. It's worth a shot. Worse comes to worse, you lose $5... let me know if you try it out!

I hate you, I just spent a fortune at Nordstom on new makeup!

I know! I found it at the KMart where the zombies all go, the one next to the office supply place, near Barnes and Noble? And I was like, hmm, what's the harm in trying it? And I loved it! I only wish they had more in stock there.
