KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

BEST NAIL POLISH

I tried several different nail po…

A Pretty Pink Beauty Look with e.l.f. Cosmetics


Isn't spring a lovely time to feel beautiful? With all of the floral prints and shades of pink, it's a fun time to be a girl. During the fall and winter months, I lean towards black leather and minimal prints, but once the weather starts to warm up, I'm all about the color, and that definitely spills over into my makeup choices.

Pinks and browns are always in when it comes to spring beauty, and they look good on any skin tone. I'm wearing the e.l.f. Essential Flawless Eyeshadow in "blushing beauty", though the palette is available in other shades with darker browns and purples and blues. It's pretty easy with this eyeshadow palette as each color is labeled with where on your eyes you should apply it. I really love the pink shade in this palette. I've tried many neutral pink and brown eye shadows, but I can honestly say this is the most vivid and beautiful shade of pink that I've used lately.


Learning which makeup brushes to use on different parts of the lids makes it easier to recreate any look. For this pretty spring look, use a sponge eyeshadow brush to apply the base color all over the lid from the lash line up to the brow brows and in the inner corners of the eyes. Then use your fingertip or another sponge-tip brush to apply the pink to your lids. This color layers very well. If you want a nice bright pink look, apply two to three layers. Add contouring with the brown "crease" shade. Use a domed contouring brush like the one pictured above to apply it in the crease from the outer edge, blending towards the middle. Apply a dark brown liner to keep the look soft, then use the angled eyeshadow brush to go over the lash line, concentrating on the outer corners.


I'm also wearing the e.l.f. Contouring Blush and Bronzer in "Antiqua" pictured above. I know it looks a bit bright, and it is, but it is also very wearable and creates such a pretty pink finish, perfect for spring. I completed the look with the e.l.f. Essential Hypershine Lip Gloss in "Vixen".
