Celebrity hairstylist and entrepreneur Jen Atkin has teamed up with affordable make-up brand e.l.f. to create beauty products that achieve a glowy, fresh face in an instant.
You’ll have no doubt marvelled at Jen Atkin’s handy work at some point.
Atkin, who was once hailed “the most influential hair stylist in the world” by the New York Times has worked on the hair of numerous celebrities, including Chrissy Teigen, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber. But that’s not all. Atkin is also the founder of uber-chic hair and body brand Ouai.
As well as an impressive (yet hectic) work schedule, Atkin has a large presence on social media – her Instagram account alone has a casual 3.8 million followers. Alongside hair tips and revealing new Ouai products, Atkin also posts about how she achieves the chic, laid-back make-up style that’s synonymous with L.A.
So, we were pretty excited to hear that Atkin has teamed up with cult beauty brand e.l.f. to create a range of make-up products. E.l.f. is known for its high quality formulations and affordable price points and the results of this collaboration is the perfect example of that.
E.l.f. XX Jen Atkin is a collection nine products covering eyes, lips and face products (hence, e.l.f…). The idea behind the range is minimalist yet function products that let you get ready quickly and includes a multipurpose hair and brow pomade, all-in-one face palettes, dual-ended lipsticks and cream-to-pencil eyeliners.
Here, we run through every product in the collection.
