“You should do a Poison Ivy look today!” my husband said to me recently. WELL DON’T MIND IF I DO. This is a very loosely inspired look, but I had a bit of fun with it and loved finally playing around with Fyrinnae Triceratops. Its been sitting in my lipstick drawer for a bit, and it’s just too pretty to not do anything with.
UGH, the past three weeks have been almost entirely makeup-less for me! Eventful, but it was one of those time periods in which I felt proud of myself simply for not doing nothing to my eyebrows before I left the house. I had a schmancy fundraiser gig I had to go to tonight, however, AND I received my Black Violet order that included their absolutely fabulous Celebration oil, as well as the special Shiro shadow ‘Everything Counts’ from their anniversary sale… so what better an occasion to give my new shadow a try?
It’s no secret that I am in love with Femme Fatale duochromes. I haven’t really had a chance to give Opaline Shoal a good go yet, swatched here. With a No Mirror Challenge up in r/MUA on Reddit (that I inevitably didn’t post to, because I’m a chickenpants), I decided it was a great opportunity to whip Opaline Shoal out, and give Jade Ghost and Meloncholy some much needed exercise. Admittedly, the No Mirror challenge was a bit harder than I had thought it might be…so fool hardy! Haha 🙂 Let’s take a look.
Guys, it’s my anniversary today! My amazing hubby and I have been married for four years now. It was such a beautiful day, probably the most beautiful of my life. We had our ceremony up in the mountains…
I am waiting on some either very good or very bad news this week, and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t trying to self medicate with makeup. You know, in the distract-at-all-costs sense. So I may have woken up before the sun rose this morning, but instead of pacing around like a mad person, I hupped to doing my makeup right away and actually had time to do proper wings for work. Channel all of that anxiety into productivity!
It’s no secret that I absolutely love Femme Fatale’s Candied Apple shadow. Let me rephrase. Loooooooove it. It finally occurred to me today that Candied Apple also pairs PERFECTLY with my other shadow love, Fyrinnae Jade Ghost. A match made in heaven! The green duochrome of Candied Apple blends beautifully with the luminous wizardry of Jade Ghost.
“It’s summer,” you say to yourself, “Where the hell are my bright blushes?!” Before toying around with Greek Goddess in my look yesterday, this was the thought that went through my head. Never fear, here is a comparison between two very bright, but very different pink blushes that are perfect for looking exquisitely blush-y during these equally bright summer months: Fyrinnae Greek Goddess (featured in my last post) and Fyrinnae Charm (featured above).
Let’s get a closer look!
Do you ever wake up in the morning with a clear thought of what you want to do for your makeup that day? I somehow woke up knowing I wanted bright pink cheeks and lips, and neutral, simple eyes. Maybe I had some sort of a dream that I can’t remember now, about strawberry flavored shaved ice and pink cotton candy, but whatever happened, this is what we came up with!
