e.l.f. SPF 45 powder

Weekly Cheap Secret:

Picture of samples with flash on.

Here’s reviews and swatches of Everyday Minerals Mineral Eyeshadow, a mineral makeup company located in Austin, Texas. These colors are light neutrals ranging from a matte to a shimmer finish.

1 – Chamomile Shimmer Eyeshadow – This is an awesome pale yellow with buttery gold shimmer. This is a great base for light “ruddy” complexions. The yellow neutralizes redness on the lids. Overall it gives a very delicate look.
