HALLOWEEN INSPO | Rational Ravenclaw

 Welcome back to the second installment of my Halloween Inspo! Today, I'm creating a Ravenclaw-inspired look. Incorporating lots of blue and bronze, I was going for a sweet librarian look. The photos are all very confusing because I actually started doing this look and then had to run off to dinner with the family. I took it all off because I wasn't about to go to a casual dinner with like blue eyeshadow--too much to explain to my grandparents, haha. 

The next day, I tried my best to recreate the look but failed miserably and the overcast weather didn't help my chances. So I really liked the eyeshadow I did from the previous day so I just skipped several steps and showed you the final eye look. That's taking the easy way out but as Halloween is less than 3 days away--eep! I didn't have time to redo things AND still do Gryffindor and Slytherin (definitely don't want to leave them out!) so I hope you'll forgive me. 

Anyhoo, let's get on with the show!

It's starting to feel like fall here in California! The past few days have been cloudy and a bit warm but a lot cooler than before. I don't like making drastic changes to my appearance to herald the changing seasons  but nail polish is a simple and not permanent way to signal the change. Here are 5 summer to fall--or fall to summer if you're in the Southern Hemisphere--options for you!

For the graphics in the header photo, I used Mikey Booch's Hufflepuff Banner Wallpaper and Emily Corene's HD Hufflepuff Traits Wallpaper
With 5 days left to Halloween, I decided to kick off this new series! Halloween usually calls for scary costumes and horror movies but that's never been my scene. As a Potterhead, I will rewatch the Harry Potter movies and hand out candy instead. If you're looking for a terrifying makeup tutorial, you've come to the wrong blog. However, if you were looking for an understated and simple Halloween look that you can wear to the office, you've come to the right spot! I'm starting with Hufflepuff because it's my favorite house, not that I'm biased or anything...

FIRST IMPRESSIONS | Innisfree Summer 2015 Limited Edition Liquid Glow Shadow

FIRST IMPRESSIONS | Innisfree Summer 2015 Limited Edition Liquid Glow Shadow #01 sandy beach, #04 green sea

As I'm sure most of y'all know by now, I'm a huge fan of liquid eyeshadows. I love how most don't require a lot of prep to look good. Shimmery shadows are my favorite kind but most powder versions irritate my sensitive eyes. Cream and liquid shadows are a nice alternative for sensitive shimmer eyeshadow fans like me! Anyhoo, Innisfree released 5 shades of the Liquid Glow Shadow in their Summer 2015 Collection. I have #01 Sandy Beach and #04 Green Sea here to review today. Let's see how well they perform!
