It has been a long journey to switch my life over to a more clean living. Because this tends to cost more money I have chosen to slowly make my way through it. Almost a year ago I had the pleasure of going to a local pop-up shop at Little Mountain Shop in Vancouver where Elate Cosmetics was all set up. It was love at first, application? Anyway since then my makeup bag as been overtaken by all things Elate.
Last weekend Tamara from Discovering Parenthood and me got together for a fun little photo shoot to show off some holiday looks you can achieve with Elate products. I have never done a collaboration with another blogger and it was a lot of fun! Collaboration, not competition ladies, am I right?! We were both up early to get ready together at my place and then head out and shoot.
Here is our before. Can you tell we are two tired mamas in the morning?
The morning reminded me of those girl nights when you all arrive at one person’s house and all get ready together. You know those nights? Those are far behind me now but it was such a great reminder of those younger days. It was also interesting to see how Tamara started her face and how I started mine. I alway start with foundation first while Tamara started with her eyes.
I love how with makeup you can play around and match it to your personality. Here is Tamara’s after. Isn’t she stunning!!
For more information on what products Tamara used to create her look head over to her post for all the deets!
Now for mine! I actually wasn’t going to use eyeshadow for my look as I’m more of a bolder eyeliner type and less eyeshadow but I went for it. Tis the season right!
Get the look:
Face: Elate “Fairest” Foundation and loose powder Veiled Elation in “Glowing”
Eyes: Elate Essential Mascara, Eyeliner in “Origin” shadows in “Rebirth” & “Rebel”
Cheeks: Universal Creme “Little Love” and Universal Creme “Wonder Highlight”
Lips: I actually mixed two colors together “Grace” and “Wild” lipsticks.
