FOTD: Hypnotize Me.


This look is great way to transition into Fall and also perfect for those who are scared of blue eyeshadow. If you're interested in playing with color, a pop on the lower lashline is a great way to ease into it. The shade on my lids is a gorgeous reddish brown from LAminerals. In the right lighting you can see a shimmer of blue, which is why I went for blue on the lower lashline.

 How To Get The Look:

  1. First, apply an eyeshadow primer. Then, with a damp brush, pack on a shimmer reddish brown shadow onto the lid. - LAminerals "Hip-Notic"
  2. Blend a matte medium brown from the crease up to where the brow bone starts for a smooth transition. - Ulta "Camel"
  3. Sweep a matte dark brown into the crease. Ulta "Milk Chocolate"
  4. Place a light matte neutral eyeshadow under your brow. - Ulta "Bone"
  5.  Apply a light matte eyeshadow in the tear duct. I used a random white shadow. Then take a light shimmery shadow and place it over that. - NYX Illuminator "Ritualistic"
  6. (a.) Line your lower lash line with a blue eyeshadow and blend it out slightly so there are no harsh lines. - I used Urban Decay "Peace" and softened it up with NYX "Dark Brown". (b.) Then apply your eyeliner and mascara. - L'Oreal Infallible Gel Eyeliner "Blackest Black", Milani Runway Lashes Instant Volume Mascara
On my eyebrows I used Anastasia Dip Brow in "Ebony" and a clear mascara to keep the hairs in place.

Denim Vest + Colorful Shorts.

Today is day one of New York Fashion Week so an outfit post sounds like the perfect way to start it off.

If you follow me on instagram then you already know about my hair change, but for those of you who don't.. Surprise! I had pink hair when I first started my blog and I missed it mucho so I just had to bring it back. I feel like myself again! Not sure how long I'll be keeping it but for now I'm enjoying it while it lasts.

  2. When completely dry, apply striping tape to index and middle fingers as shown in photo below. Then apply "China Flower" and remove the tape after a few seconds.
  3. Place a rhinestone on your pinky using clear polish to make it adhere.
  4. Apply top coat.

This is only my second time using striping tape and not gonna lie, I was starting to lose patience with it when trying to match up where two of the ends would meet. Practice makes perfect though so expect to see more posts with me using it. If you have any suggested color combos or anything beauty/fashion related that you would like to see in a future post, leave a comment, email, or contact me at any of the links below.
