EOTD: Faded Sunset

Hello everyone! This is a look I did one evening this week. We've been having beautiful sunsets every night this week, and unusually hot weather for this time of year, so I wanted to do an eyeshadow look that reflected the sky's colours.

For this look I used:

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
Fyrinnae Rapunzel Had Extensions (inner corner and lid)
Fyrinnae Banana Mochi (lid)
Fyrinnae Arcane Magic in Faerie Glamour (outer corner and crease)

Hope you like this look :)

EOTD: Journey of a Dinosaur

Here's a look I did today with Fyrinnae's Dinosaur Plushie. As always, photos don't do this eyeshadow justice at all.

The crease colour is actually matte but looks shimmery since the Dinosaur Plushie sparkles got all over :)

What I used:

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese
Fyrinnae Dinosaur Plushie
HiFi Cosmetics Journey of a Gemini
Janet Colours Dust - not sure it has a name/shade number but it's a neon matte pinky purple.

In other news, I'm going to college soon to study a course on makeup, so hopefully I will be able to post about some of the things I have done on the course for you. I can't wait to get started, although of course I'm nervous at the same time. 

Hope you are all well!

EOTD: It only hurts when I mauve!

Hello! Just a quick post to show you today's look and one from Saturday night. My skin is quite bad at the moment so full face shots are not looking great.

I just used Too Faced Shadow Insurance, MAC Pigment in Mauvement all over the lid, and Hi Fi Cosmetics My Pain in the crease/outer corner. I used Urban Decay Virgin as my brow and inner corner highlight. Then I used a tiny bit of elf brown cream liner on the upper lashline, and black mascara.

Sorry these pictures are a bit blurry, and the last one is horrible, but shows the makeup :p

I used:

Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
Sleek Acid and Curacao palettes
Sugarpill Dollipop and Poison Plum.
HiFi Cosmetics Morbid Faith
Sleek Suede blusher.

Hope you like these looks!

Eyes of the Day - Banana Meerkat

This look was the result of wanting to use the neglected yellows in my collection like Fyrinnae Banana Mochi. It's a lovely soft shimmery yellow, something I don't often use, as I usually want either a proper gold, or a bold matte yellow. But I think it actually looks lovely!

I also used some other soft pretty colours for this look.

Hi Fi Cosmetics So What is a beautiful pale pink with blue shimmer, used on the lid.
Fyrinnae Meerkat in the outer corner.
A tiny bit of Hi Fi In Bloom between So What and Meerkat.

On the cheeks I have Evil Shades Blush in Gossamer. I can't tell you how much I love this blusher, it's beautiful. I've been looking for something with a strong blue duochrome for ages, and this definitely fits the bill. I'll hopefully get a more in depth post up about Evil Shades and the products I've tried from them :)

Experiments in Makeup

Hi everyone! Today I spent most of the afternoon messing about with makeup and seeing what I could come up with. I like to do crazy stuff then just wash it off, if only to play with stuff in my collection that gets neglected.

My favourite look I created today was another one inspired by Pat McGrath's work:

As you can see I tried to conceal my eyebrow, but it's still visible. It was only my second time trying this though, so I guess practise will make perfect :)

I used Sugarpil eyeshadows except for the black, which was Sleek, and the pale blue under the eye is Fyrinnae's Winter Again.

I also did another eye look which is a bit drag queen so therefore I really enjoyed!

And I also tried something which didn't turn out very well, but I'll show you anyway.

For this look I used Sleek and Nyx eyeshadows and Ardell 117 lashes.

Glitter lips!

Something I have learnt through blogging: glitter is a massive pain to photograph! Anyway, hope you enjoyed this post!

Galactic Eyes

For this look I was inspired by a picture I saved to my computer a long time ago (I'm sorry I don't know who the image belongs to!):

Rainbow Eyes!

Hello everyone! Today I felt like playing with make-up so I attempted my own version of a rainbow eye. I know it's similar to things I have done in the past but this is my first time doing a true rainbow on the eye.

I photographed it without mascara or any black/grey first because I like how bright and 'clean' it looked, but the lashes do look a bit weird with all that fallout on haha.

In the last picture the lower lashline looks really unblended but it didn't look that bad in real life I swear!

For this look I used:

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
Sleek Acid and Curacao palettes.

I hope you like this look!
