FOTD: Fall - L'Oreal HIP Eyeshadow in Electrified 510

Hey everyone.  I decided to post my playing around with some shadows I hadn't touched in a long time.  I remember seeing the L'Oreal HIP Eyeshadow Duos everywhere and had to pick up a color, but at the time I couldn't choose.  And then, I saw a post and video tutorial from Jen of frmheadtotoe.  Her post with the duo called Electrified (or #510) made me fall in love with that gorgeous deep plum color.  Her tutorial also seemed easy enough to mimic onto myself also!

If you ladies hadn't noticed most of my makeup looks consist of very minimal eyeshadow, if any, and mostly just mascara and eyeliner.  Mascara and eyeliner are really a majority staple in my collection and I do have some shadows, but I guess my problem is I have no idea how to use them! (^.^ );;

Please excuse the poor blending, as I have always suffered the lack of skills in that area, but I did my best and I even threw on a pair of falsies for added "oomph"!  

In this picture, the blending isn't so bad!  But for whatever reason, the next picture doesn't really showcase it all that much! (T^T)

This closeup does no justice for how beautiful the metallic taupe color is out of this shadow duo.  It also seems that the deep plum color is washed out by the lighting as well.  I apologize, it was super cloudy/overcast and this was the rare part of the day to see some kind of light in the sky!  *shakes fist at the sky*

This full face picture, I think did a much nicer job of making that gorgeous taupe color show up more, you can see I used it in my inner corners and on the lower inner half of my bottom lashes.  You can also see more of the true color of the deep plum shadow on my outer lower lash line.

The falsies I'm using were also featured in another post, and they are from Darkness lashes.  This particular pair are called K-Ma I think. (Sorry!)  It's a Korean brand I picked up at the local Korean market that had a beauty boutique inside.  I was so ecstatic to find these lashes, I just had to pick some up, I've had the same two pair for over a year, and have only worn them twice.  (I'm a bit scared to wear them out and you would not believe how LONG it took me to get them on!!!)

So what did I use?

Benefit's Rockateur Blush (I will hopefully have a review up for this soon!)

L'Oreal HIP Eyeshadow Duo in 510 Electrified (I purchased this at Target, you can probably get it at any drugstore.)
Darkness Lashes in style K-ma (Found at local Korean market, you  may be able to find these online.  Love these falsies, no need for mascara!)
Duo - Dark Lash Glue (I believe I got mine at Sally's Beauty Supply, but you can find this virtually anywhere!)


NYX Black Label Lipstick in Bling (I purchased mine here.  You can find NYX products at Ulta.com as well, but I did not see the Black Label lipsticks on the site.)
Milani 3D Glitzy Glamour Gloss in Designer Label #43 (I purchased mine at CherryCulture.com as well, but it doesn't look like they carry this color anymore.  You can find it here, Amazon or eBay.)

Sadly, you cannot see the gorgeous rose gold blush that I recently picked up from Benefit called Rockateur.  I loved it from the moment I saw pictures of it online and then in person, I had totally fallen head over heels!  There was no way I was leaving Sephora without it after having set my eyes upon it in person.  It's super gorgeous and I'm so sad that the lighting in my pictures washed it out completely!  In person, it was there, and in all of it's gorgeous rose-gold glory!  I will definitely be doing a review on this soon!  Have any of you tried it out yet? (Let me know in the comments, what did you think?)

So that was about it for the first Fall FOTD of the year!  There's a reason why I don't use eyeshadow often, it's a lot of work and I am horrible at blending.  Any tips would be much appreciated haha! ^__^  Also, by the picture above, you can tell that I have not cut my hair in FOREVER, and it's getting quite long, and the ends are FAR-IED! (T__T)  Hopefully by my new post, I will have had a haircut and my hair will feel refreshed!  Until next time, see you guys soon and again Thank you for reading! ♥ (^.~ )v 

What kinds of makeup looks are you looking forward to for this fall and winter seasons?  Are you looking to do something new with your hair?  Let me know in the comments!

Also, in case you wanted to know how I did this look, I used the video tutorial below, by Jen at frmheadtotoe.

Manicure Monday: Essie Mint Candy Apple and OPI For Sephora Only Gold For Me

  Hi everyone!  I'm back with another Manicure Monday and this week's mani is a kind of a last summer "hoorah" to ease into the fall season.  I don't know about you, but I love creme and pastel colors with flecks of gold, silver and copper.  For this manicure I decided to invert my usual glitter tips and started the glitter from the cuticle.
