Step 1: Even your skin tone with your favorite foundation or tinted moisturizer. Use a concealer to cover any discolorations and dark circles, then set with a translucent powder to create the perfect canvas that will last all day.
Step 2: Prime your lids with the same concealer you used on your face. Using the fluffy eyeshadow brush from the EcoTools 6 Piece Brush Set, apply a light wash of the light peachy colour from the e.l.f. palette all over the lid. Using the angled brush, draw a guide with the dark brown colour from the outer corner of your eyes towards the end of your eyebrow, stopping at the crease.
Step 3: Using the fluffy brush, pat on the dark bronze eyeshadow on the outer third of your eyelids, just passing the crease.
Step 4: Apply the same bronze shade with the fluffy brush on the outer half of the lower lashline. Clean off the fluffy brush with a tissue paper and blend out any harsh edges in a windshield wiper motion.
Step 5: Using the thin brush, apply a bit of concealer under the outer brow bone to erase any colours. Tap on the lightest champagne eyeshadow on top of the concealer to create a more 3 dimensional effect and make your eyes pop. Smudge the black eyeliner from the e.l.f. palette and blend upwards with a q-tip.
Step 6: Apply 2 coats of CoverGirl LashBlast Length on top and bottom lashes. Fill in eyebrows and comb it out with a eyebrow comb.
Step 7: Apply Joe Fresh Beauty Blush in Pink with the EcoTools dome face brush on the apples of the cheeks. Tap a little bit of the golden cream highlighter from the e.l.f palette on cheekbones for a subtle glow.
This is the perfect polished look for the office.
Step 8: To transition the look from day to night, darken the outer corners of the lids with a bit of black, and highlight the inner corners of the eyes with the light champagne shade.
Step 9: Finish off the look by applying a sheer layer of Joe Fresh Beauty Sheer Lip Crayon in Apple.

I have some of those eco tools brushes and I love them. Great value, quality and even better, the environmental factor. Win win win!
Oops you can't actually purchase the EcoTools brushes that Mandy used at Shoppers Drug Mart, but Walmart is still a good place to go!
EcoTools brushes are available in Canada at the following stores:
Love it! I'm a sucker for clear step-by-steps, and the budget angle is fab. Plus Meredith looks great, Mandy!
You look beautiful! And at $50.00, you can't beat that. Great job.
