    Try It Thursday: Fall “Apple Cider” Look. This isn’t something that I picked up from anyone else, this look is something I came up with last night. I centered this look around a loose shadow I won in a giveaway. I had yet to use it, and I was suddenly struck to try it out last night for the first time!I also wanted to work on my winged liner. I think I did pretty well.

    Here’s what I did:

    1. Laid down e.l.f. eyeshadow primer
    2. Blended NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk over lid
    3. Applied Concrete Minerals Poisonous Kiss all over lid and slightly into crease. Leaving inner corner free. Blend where it met crease.
    4. Using Maybelline’s Give Me Gold palette I used the golden color in the inner corner.
    5. I then used my BH Cosmetics 88 Matte Palette and used a dark brown color in my crease. It was subtle, but I liked it. I blended that where it met Poisonous Kiss. I also found an orange color and blended it lightly in the center of the lid to create more dimension.
    6. I tightlined with Wet N Wild’s white eye pencil.
    7. Using Maybelline’s Lasting Drama Gel Liner I created (perfectly I might add) a slight winged liner. The wings were both perfect, but didn’t match, sadly!! I worked really hard to get better at it though.
    8. I applied e.l.f. HD Blush in headliner to my cheeks.
    9. Then applied MAC Ruby Woo and put e.l.f. Perfect Pink lip gloss over it. 

    All in all I am really happy with this look and might do a video tutorial of it because it’s so easy. I was debating smudging shadow on the lower line, but decided I didn’t want to because it was so crisp. It reminds me of apple cider a little bit!
