FOTD: Classic Lady In Red

This FOTD look came about due to my recent Cover Girl Lip Perfection haul. I wanted to sport a bright red lip so I paired the collection's lip color in Hot with the lip liner in Passion. I based the rest of my look around these colors and went with a light simple eye along with a bunch of small semi-tight curls. To set the curls I used my Conair Infiniti You Style Mulit-Functional Styling Iron that I bought from It's the cheapest I've found @ $24.97. Buy it here.

I created my eye look with the E.L.F. Studio Limited Edition Endless Pro Eyeshadow Palette. It retails for just $10 and is a great buy if you're looking for a palette that has a variety of colors. Some colors have shimmer in them, others are matte and many are highly pigmented. The palette comes with a mirror and 2 double sided eyeshadow applicators on the inside cover. You can purchase it on the E.L.F. website here. I've created a # guide so you can easily refer back to it when I mention what colors I have used for my looks. I've also included it in my sidebar for quick referral (Click to enlarge).
