The KCL Beauty Edit

Welcome to another KCL Beauty Edit! I've really loved so many of the beauty and makeup products I tried last month. There is usually at least one dud in the bunch that I reluctantly have to give a bad review, but I have something good to say about each one of these products. A few of them I very highly recommend, so grab a cup of coffee and check it all out. If you have a question about any of the products mentioned, please leave it below in the comments section. And if you don't have time to read this, you can skip ahead and listen to my video review here while you work or whatever. Enjoy!


The new skincare line I tried last month was from LHB Natural Skincare, which included a facial wash and two different facial serums. I recently posted about LHB in an anti-aging skincare routine blog and video to show how I use each of these products. Of course I started with the facial wash, which I really loved. The LHB Coconut & Sea Clay Mineral Face Wash is great for any skin type…

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".
