FOTD + a small favor!

Hello everyone & welcome new followers! I want to thank you all so much for your support and I hope you are enjoying my blog! If you ever have any suggestions or requests please don't be shy and let me know, I'd love to hear from you =) I've been super busy with work lately so I haven't been posting as frequently as I would like...I have a bunch of photos ready but not enough time to write my posts, that's life I guess! Let's get on to the look...

Today's look didn't turn out how I pictured it...I wanted to do a "Fall Trend" look with smokey eyes and dark lips (to relate to the favor I have to ask, I'll talk about it at the end). I wanted to use bronze shadows and a really deep lip color, but that didn't end up happening. I don't own any dark lipsticks but I knew my mom did, I explored through her makeup and found MAC's Party Line. It looked like a dark burgundy to me so I thought it would be perfect. Well once I got home and put in on I realized it's not dark at all and pretty much just red! Haha oh well! I used ELF's Brightening Eyeshadow Quad in Drama to create the dark smokey eyes! I really love this quad from ELF, it contains a shimmery black, dark gray, light gray and a matte white...the colors are perfect to create a classic smokey eye. The texture is a little chalky and the pigmentation is okay...but hey, I'm not complaining cause it's only $1!
Product Used:
   Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Ivory
   Estee Lauder Blush in Nude Rose
   The Body Shop Shimmer Waves as cheek highlight
   ELF Eyelid Primer
   NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
   Elf Brightening Eyeshadow Quad in Drama
   Wet n Wild Creme Eyeliner in Black
   Bare Minerals Brow Color
   L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black
   MAC Lipstick in Party Line

My comment is the 2nd one (Amanda Lehrke) that says: "My favorite 2011 fall beauty trend is smokey eyes with dark lips!" Which is why I wanted to incorporate it into this post! I have no idea the exact prize will be but whatever it is I would love to share and review it for you guys. Please and thank you! Now I want to know, what is YOUR favorite fall beauty trend?
