Good Game Glam: Strawberry Inspired Looks with the Berry Hot Drop!

Good Game Glam: Strawberry Inspired Looks with the Berry Hot Drop!

Originally posted August 17, 2023

Hello Paidians, and welcome to the August recap of our Good Game Glam with e.l.f Cosmetics!

Every first monday of each month, e.l.f. Cosmetics’ Twitch channel (elfyou) features a stream from e.l.f. Cosmetics and myself, Stephanie Peloza, Paidia Gaming’s Head Narrative Designer! Together, we host giveaways and create looks inspired by gaming icons and legends.

This time we’re joined by award winning Esports Host, Camille Salazar Hadaway! 


For this mission, we were tasked with creating looks based on the new e.l.f. x Loserfruit collab, the Berry Hot Drop and a few other e.l.f. products that are available on! Camille was focusing on creating a daily wear look and I was creating a more dramatic glam take!

If you aren’t familiar with Loserfruit, aka Lufu. She’s a badass gamer from Australia with a knack for making us laugh out loud. She’s a pro at Fortnite (did we mention she has her own skin in the game?)

Let’s start with the face base!

Before we went live, Camille and I both did our bases with e.l.f.’s Power Grip Primer, Hydrating Camo Concealer and Flawless Satin Foundation combo! This classic trio gives a smooth, even finish to the skin. Then, we defined our features using the Halo Glow Contour Beauty Wand around our cheekbones, and I like to do my nose and jawline as well.

Prior to starting our eyes, we both used the Surge Lip Mask (Berry Hot Drop) to prep our lips for later!


Camille’s every day glowing take:

Camile Showing Off Her Everyday Look


The star of the show for Camille’s glowing look is the shimmering brown shade from the Strawberry Download palette (Berry Hot Drop). She applied this across her lid, then defined her lashline in black with the Precision Liquid Eyeliner, and filled in her brows with her Ultra Precise Brow Pencil to frame her face.

To wrap up her eyes, Camille used her favourite mascara: Big Mood Mascara! She prefers its fluffy, fibrous brush and volumizing effect.

To bring that berry vibe into the look, Camille generously applied the deepest berry blush shade from the Strawberry Download palette (Berry Hot Drop) along her cheekbones, highlighting her natural bone structure. 

Then as a finishing touch, she used her favourite O Face Satin Lipstick shade: Shameless!


Stephanie’s strawberry inspired freckled glam:

Steph's Final Look

To prime my eye area, I started by covering my lid with the No Budge Cream Eyeshadow in Wispy Cloud (white) and blending it out towards the crease. Then, I used a few shadows from the Strawberry Download palette (Berry Hot Drop): the shimmery white (with pink shine!) shade across my lid, then the shimmery brown around the outer corner of my eyelid, and last but not least, the mauve berry shade in my crease and along my lower lash line!

To frame my eyes, I used my favourite eyeliner: the H20 Proof Eyeliner Pen, then applied a pair of false lashes to up the drama and unified the eyes with Lash ’N Roll Mascara!

For brows, I used the Ultra Precise Brow Pencil and then turned my attention to cheeks. First, I used the same beautiful berry blush as Camille from the Strawberry Download palette  (Berry Hot Drop), then swapped to a  No Budge Retractable Eyeliner in Coffee and one by one, painted freckles through the middle of my face (across my nose, cheekbones and temples) to lightly reference the image of strawberry seeds! 

As a finishing touch on the face, I grabbed my Halo Glow Highlight Beauty Wand, blended it out, and topped it with the white eyeshadow from the Strawberry Download palette (Berry Hot Drop) for EXTRA shine!

To wrap up my look, I topped my lips with Lip Plumping Gloss in Mauve Lady, to keep the whole beat reflective, glowing and soft.

With our looks done, we dropped into Fortnite Creative Mode to Tiny Town and explored e.l.f. x PWR collab, a berry extraordinary experience that celebrates Loserfruit and Berry Hot Drop. We hit up the e.l.f. store and conquered (after many attempts) Fruity Mountain! If you want to check it out yourself use island code: 9683-4582-8184 in Fortnite Creative.
