FOTD - Fall Look with Smokey Eyes and Plum Lips

Hi Bellas!
I wanted to share with you a quick look I did before heading out to a gig Friday night.  It started out as a drugstore smokey eye tutorial, but my camera ended up dying on me, lol.  After that, I ended up modifying it a bit with some department store brands.

As you can see, it's a smokey eye with a bold lip...very fall appropriate.  I don't usually do these kind of lips, but I like how they turned out.  I'm loving Magnetique lipglass all over again, it's so pigmented!  I took these pictures in the hallway on my way to a gig, lol, I'm surprised they came out!  You can see the strap on my arm from where I'm carrying my portable makeup chair.

Here's What I Used:

-PUR Minerals eyeshadow primer (not sure if this works well for oily skin, but it worked well on me)
-Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Quad in Natural Smokes ($4.99 on!)
-MAC Young Punk minearlized eyeshadow (to darken it up a bit and add some glitter)
-NYX jumbo pencil in black bean (black base and liner)
-Anastasia Lifting Mascara (really love this mascara)
-Rimmel brow pencil in hazel (staple in my kit)
-Ardell Demi Wispies Lashes (love!)
-Jordana Liquid Eyeliner (pretty decent in terms of color and precise application...staying power isn't the best though)

-Revlon Colorstay Foundation
-Revlon Beyond Natural Concealer and Highlighter in Medium
-MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark (to correct the beigeness of the foundie)
-forgot the blush, sorry!

-MAC Magnetique lipglass
-Ben Nye wine colored lip liner

Hi Ren,
I was researching make up for Halloween to do a devil look. I came accross your blog and I fell in love with it. I looked at your previous posts and I loved them all. You are really creative and I also love make-up. I just had to join. I went out and bought a pallete of eye shadows because you inspired me to start being creative with my make-up again!!! thanks!
