This Week's FOTDs

11:51

Hey lovelies,

How has your weekend been going? I've been lip swatching up a storm and having lots of snuggles with Patrick - he turned one month old on Friday! February went fast. I've been making a bit more of an effort with my make up the past few days. I've got so many pretty new additions I've been dying to play with, and I always find doing my make up makes me feel like I'm still me and improves my mood, even if I've had a rough night's sleep, or Noel's pushing things. So huzzah for make up! It's not (just) vanity, it's sanity :D

Thursday





Sorry about the shoddy blending here! I tried out Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy for the first time and used a little too much - there's definitely a knack to it, but I got the hang of it on Friday :D I looooove the Fyrinnae eyeshadow I used for this look, it's Dark Fantasy, one of the Arcane Magics. It was hard to capture in photos, but it has this beautiful purple interference/shift which you can just see by my crease. In person I kept catching glimpses of it in mirrors and making a fool of myself moving my head around to watch the colour change, lol.

Friday



I spent Friday lip swatching up a storm, so during swatching breaks it was all about the lip balm :) I tried out Pixie Epoxy again with much better success! I made Mike pause his game of Skyrim so I could crow about the lasting power after I realised the eyeshadow I'd applied at 9am was still flawless at 11pm that night. That is absolutely unheard of with my oily lids, so I was bursting with excitement! We high fived and everything.

Saturday


Saturday was another lip swatching sesh, so I just wore lip balm between swatches, but this was my favourite combo that day. Innisfree Creamy Tint lipstick #2 Cocktail Pink- love the contrast with the aqua eyeliner! I tried out another Fyrinnae eyeshadow on Saturday, Arcane Magic: Evocation; this time skipping the Pixie Epoxy because I liked how this swatched dry a lot too. This is such a great workhorse shade, it wore beautifully and the subtle flashes of purple shimmer keep things interesting. I'm so excited to show you guys Fyrinnae swatches soon, I have a feature planned :D



In sunlight to show the subtle purple shimmer!
