Blog Launch + elf Giveaway

So, after prepping a blog editorial calendar and a blog editorial plan throughout my Fall semester at UNT and working on it more during Winter Break, I'm FINALLY launching my blog! I'm such a perfectionist, I am surprised I didn't delay the launch date to February. To celebrate my blog launch, I will be hosting an elf giveaway! Anybody that knows me know that elf was the first cosmetic line I started using when I was building up my kit back in 2011 because it was super affordable and I didn't have pro discounts from the prestige brands to use just yet. I pretty much own the majority of their Studio and Essential collection. This is my way of paying homage to them for helping me get my career started as a makeup artist by featuring them in my giveaway. 

Glitter Nail Polish -- Dream Maker, Super Glossy Lip Shine -- Candlelight, Super Glossy Lip Shine -- Honey Do, 3 Piece Nail Polish Set -- Glam Bam, Eyelid Primer -- Sheer, Eyebrow Lifter and Filler -- Ivory/Medium, Lip Definer & Shaper -- Natural/Nude, Pout Perfector -- Glow, Moisturizing Lipstick -- Party in the Buff & Flirty + Fabulous, , Baked Highlighters -- Pink Diamonds and Blush Gems, 11 Piece Studio Brush Collection, and Baked Eyeshadow Palette -- Texas. 

To enter the giveaway: 

1. You MUST be following makeupbyshawnee on Instagram. 
2. LIKE the photo on my page. 
3. REPOST the giveaway photo, tag MAKEUPBYSHAWNEE in your photo, and include the hashtags #MBSBlogLaunch and #elfcosmetics

This giveaway will be going on until Friday, January 16th at 10am, and I will announce the winner at 5pm. I'm aiming to do at least one giveaway each month during 2015, so follow me on social media so you can find out when I am doing them :) as of right now, I will be posting on Mondays and Wednesdays, along with the occasional posts on Fridays that will most likely be any specials + promos I'm offering regarding makeup, or anything I am offering with one of my colleagues/friends for hair + makeup specials. 

I'm in the process of creating a newsletter that I will be sending out biweekly with blog posts that you've missed + other relevant news. I will definitely announce when that is happening via social media (in case I do another giveaway for subscribing to it!).
