Look of the Day & a Giveaway!


Hi everyone! What a crazy month it's been. I've had some health issues, so I've been resting a lot. Finally getting back into the normal swing of things, and am making sense of a much-needed diet change. Obviously, the blog has been neglected. I'm back, though. I swear!



What I'm wearing:
Long sleeve shirt & track pants from Target, thrifted wool jacket, vintage Coach bag, vintage flats, vintage coral necklace, and a  necklace from some little store at the Olympia Mall.

Anyway, a month ago, I signed up on BrandBacker  to review an eye shadow palette from Paula Dorf. While I've heard of the brand, I don't think I've ever tried it, so I jumped at the chance! They sent me this gorgeous set of sun-drenched colors called Aztec City. I love the blue, but have never been able to pull off this shade, so it goes untouched. Maybe I'll get brave and try it tomorrow. I've tried all the other colors, though! The white and soft mauve are perfect for brightening the inner corner of your lid. The baked clay shade is great for shading the whole lid, and the dark brown is ideal for lining and creating a warm, smokey eye. 

The only disappointment is that they're a little powdery, even when I use my good shadow brush. My fix is to not apply my under-eye make-up till after I've done my shadow. If I apply it before I just end up wiping away all my concealer when I'm cleaning up loose powder.

I finished off the look with concealer, brown liquid liner, mascara, and brow tint.

Now for the giveaway part!
 One lucky reader will win this Paul Dorf mascara and a little holiday surprise from Fleur d'Elise! The mascara is a rich teal color that compliments any eye color! It's also water resistant and safe for contact lense wearers.

So happy to hear you're back! And I'm sorry about the health issues, hope you're okay now! You look as dashing as ever. The palette seems rather fancy, I want a nice palette, but can't decide on brand O_O
