Very First A Day In Pictures

This is something new that I am thinking about trying out with my blog, so let me know what you think of it..
I have been looking to take my blog further then just post to accompany videos that I do on my youtube channel for a while now. I asked on facebook what you would like to see & Megan had suggested "a day in the life" style blogs. I still wasn't really sure where I would take that until I saw Xiaxue's Blog. She does great picture post with short captions & I thought it was the perfect way to do these. I didn't take as many pictures as I had wanted, because I forgot my camera at home & my phone one is all wonkey), but I think that I did ok for my first post like this!

Fall Metallics

I have been seeing tons of these neutral metallic's lately & thought that they would be perfect for a simple, glammed up, everyday fall look. The neutral, one toned color palette really grounds this look. While the metallic nature of the colors makes it look a little more classy & glamorous.

Products Mentioned:

Revlon Perle Eyeshadow in Sunlit Sparkle- Ulta $3 (40%off)
Revlon Satin Eyeshadow in Polished Bronze- Ulta $3 (40%off)

It was ridiculously expensive ($7), even though it was on sale 40% off, & didn't work hardly at all. I put on 3 layers before I gave up & put my ELF concealer on over it. Now, I do have incredibly dark under eye circles but, this just went on so sheer I doubt it would even cover normal discoloration.]
