Simplest Smoky Eye: DuWop Shadowlift

For the simplest smoky eye, you just need one product…DuWop Shadowlift. No brushes. No fussing. No kidding.

Just apply a small dot of Shadowlift in Surf (sheer taupe) onto the center of the eyelid. Then blend inward toward the nose, outward, and a smidge above the crease. Dab, don’t rub. And voila…a smoky eye so chic that it looks like you had help. Well, technically you did, but I won’t tell.

I’m rockin’ this look right now…and I don’t have to tell you how haute it looks. It’s just a shame that I’m wasting it sitting at my parents’ house, typing on my laptop. Anyway…

As a bonus, while you’re going about your day/night looking smokin’ hot with your simple smoky eye, Shadowlift’s anti-aging and skin perfecting ingredients are hard at work – oxygenating, nourishing and toning the delicate eyelid area.

Shadowlift’s crease-resistant formula is available in three other lovely shades: Heat (pink gold), Spirit (soft champagne) and Solé (vibrant bronze).

L’Oreal Giveaway!!!

When you head to the polling station on November 4th and vote for President – you can cast your ballot for only one candidate. There can only be one winner. Not so at Spoiled Pretty.

This week, L’Oreal Paris is giving you the opportunity to win some beauty booty…five lucky readers will win the following products. And in the spirit of democracy, the winners will get to choose their colors!

1 Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Haircolor
Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Haircolor delivers intensified, brilliant results. Inspired by cutting-fashion, Feria’s prismatic color spectrum is custom-blended by L’Oreal master colorist to make every shade shimmer with 3X highlights. The revolutionary Silk & Shimmer Deep Conditioning formula leaves hair even more prismatic with a soft, silky feel that lasts week after week. The new Pro Touch applicator also ensures an easy, even application from root to tip. Plus, a new aromatic scent for a pleasant coloring experience. With Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Haircolor, hair glistens like never before…no appointment necessary. Available in 33 shades.

1 Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner
Enjoy beautifully defined eyes for up to 16 hours. The rich, creamy formula glides on easily and sets quickly for fade-proof color. Use the built-in smudger and sharpener to create versatile eyeliner looks for any occasion. Available in three rich shades (Black, Black Brown and Brown), Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

3 HIP Metallic Shadow Duos

HIP High Intensity Pigments Metallic Shadow Duos combine a range of trend-setting colors with a luminous, high-pearl metallic finish that allows you to create a new twist on the modern, smoky eye. Each perfectly coordinated duo pairs complementary shades that apply smoothly and evenly to create a striking look that is edgy yet undeniably elegant. Sweep the lighter shade all over for luminous color while using the darker shade to contour and define the eye for a complete look that delivers maximum impact. Available in five shade combinations (Gilded, Gunmetal, Magnetic, Platinum and Sculpted).

3 HIP Jelly Balms
HIP High Intensity Pigments Jelly Balms offer a fun, lusciously playful way to inspire and create beautiful lip look that perfectly complements the bold HIP High Intensity Pigments eye collections. Available in six dewy shades (Delectable, Luscious, Plush, Ripe, Savory and Succulent), these balms have a super-conditioning formula that provides the moisturizing benefits of a lip balm with an enticing pop of sheer color. Lips take on a shiny, satin finish that looks healthy and soft when worn alone, or adds drama and fullness when layered on top of any lip color.
