Budget beauty buy of the week

Hello everyone! I want to wish you all a very happy new year, I hope 2013 brings fun, love and new things to all of you! …Speaking of new things, I have decided to start doing beauty reviews on my blog after I got a few comments and tweets asking about my everyday make up and hair routine. I am not any kind of beauty expert, but I am a total hair & make up product junkie (and hoarder) and have picked up loads of helpful tips and tricks from working on so many film and photo shoots over the years. Each week I will be doing a short-and-sweet review of a smashing BUDGET beauty product that I can’t live without. Many of us have resolutions to save a little more money this year, so hopefully I can help! Please don’t be shy and tell me what you think of the review, your experiences or suggestions. Global online girl talk rules!

First up, The ELF (Eyes Lips Face) High Definition Power: I purchased the ELF High definition Powder after seeing it featured in many Youtube tutorials and now I use it almost everyday. The powder comes in quite a large container with a puff and only costs $6! It is a very light translucent powder that does a good job of mattifying your foundation without drying out your face. Be careful not to use too much as an excessive amount of powder can look a bit grey. But other than that its great and long lasting- great for photoshoots, bloggers/ models/ instagramers! Tip: for an even and flawless application use a large fine and soft bristle make up brush instead of the puff. You can buy it from the ELF online store here.
