Trying New Looks
e.l.f. cosmetics are a wonderful way to experiment with trendy colors and new looks before spending big bucks on designer brands. Many products are just $1, and even combination sets and mineral-based makeups are ultra affordable. Available locally at Target.
1. Soft Hands
Combat seasonal dry skin with a trifecta of beeswax balms — Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme, Hand Salve and Almond Milk Hand Creme — from the Triangle-based company.
2. Stay-Put Makeup
A dab of Spackle Tinted Under Make-Up Primer by Laura Geller helps your foundation last all day long. Take that, Southern humidity!
3. Notice-Me Nails
Vibrant polish adds edge to a ladylike manicure. Try shades Moma and Luxury Lime Creme by New York Color. Available locally at Target.
