HiFi and some Fyrinnae


After taking advantage of HiFi's sale this weekend, I realized how long neglected my HiFi shadows had gone.  I put this together for a day at work and instantly fell in love with HiFi's shadow, Eclipsed the Sun.  It is a gorgeous duochrome color shifter that would compliment any eye color.

Simple LOTD using drugstore products + Hair Extensions!!

Hello all!!

I've been doing a terrible job of keeping up with my blog and all of your posts...  soon I will catch up!!!
Today's LOTD is the type of look I always need more of.... quick, matches with any clothing type or color and uses easily accessible and inexpensive products.  The eyes can be thrown on in just a few minutes, even with the falsies because I find the demi lashes to be so quick to apply!

The extensions were purchased at a beauty supply store and are the clip in variety.  I really love them and think they are so much fun.. I just need to improve my application of them as I'm certain some of the wefts are visible from the back of my head :)  They are natural human hair and I just lightly curled them with my natural hair with a very large (1.5 ") curling iron to help them blend into my hair a little better.

Products used:
Wet N' Wild Nutty all over lid to just above crease
Maybelline Natural Smokes Quad - matte dark brown  to line lower lashline and smudge into outer upper lashline  Matte Ivory color- highlight on brow and inner corners.
NYX Cream Cheese to add some shimmer and light to browbone
Prestige Waterproof liner- black waterlines
Jordana Liquid liner- Black upper lashline
NYX Demi false lashes 

Cheeks are Milani Luminous Blush
Lips are Maybelline Color Sensational Lippie- Peachy Scene

Hot Pink Lips

I am a self proclaimed lipstick wimp.  I wear all sorts of colors on my eyes but inevitably reach for a neutral, light lippy.  Today I opted for a neutral eye and some vibrant lips :)

Bare Necessity Indelible cream shadow as base
Matte Off white and Tan from neutral WnW palette- off white all over eye area, tan on outer edge of lid and into crease
MAC Dark Edge on outer V and along lower lashline
MAC Transparent Teal Reflects patted on lid (this did not show up in pics)
Ben Nye Cakeliner- black on upper lashline

Lips- Prestige lipliner in Diva to line and fill in lips and Bare Escentuals Buxom Gloss in Laura

Cheeks- NYX Peach

Thanks for looking!

Fyrinnae brightness


I wanted something a little brighter today :)  I used some of my faves from fyrinnae paired with some of my new staples from my WnW palettes.

The jesse's girl cream shadow i used as a base on lid is a disaster, I am creasing like crazy :(.  Next time I need a teal base, I will just use some kohl liner smudged on lid.

Bare Necessity Indelible Cream shadow from lashes to brow
Light satin finish off white (MAC Vanilla dupe) from purple WnW palette applied to brow bone
Midtone matte green from WnW pride palette applied to just above crease, blended into vanilla shadow
Jesse's Girl cream shadow in Destiny(as in, you're destined to crease- even in 60 degree perfect NY fall day crispness) (bright aqua) patted lightly onto lid
Fyrrinae  Adam and Steve's ( Bright teal-green with a soft blue shimmer and sparkle highlight.) patted all over lid over top of cream shadow
Fyrinnae Faerie Glamour (Violet base with an aqua shimmer that changes to a bright pink when closer to light) patted on outer corners, blending slightly into crease
Colors repeated on lower lashline
Ben Nye Cake liner- black upper lashline
Urban Decay 24/7 liner- zero waterlines

Cheeks are Benefit Coralista,  Lips are NYX Black label- Heiress

Those rogue bangs need to sneak into every shot!

Wardrobe change!

Wet N Wild Pride (blue green palette)

hi ladies!!

Dear sweet Caro from MUA has been curious about the green and blue WnW palette so I finally decided to try mine out.  This palette contains 3 shimmery shades- frosty white, shimmery midtoned green and a deep shimmering navy.  It also has 3 matte shades- pure white, midtoned bright green and a deep navy.  I am quite happy with all of the colors with the exception of the shimmery white- it is just way to sheer and applies patchy with chunky glitter fallout.  The rest of the colors are fantastic :)  I will swatch them all for you soon!

Here is my look of the day using the Wet N Wild Pride palette:

Bare Necessity Indelible Cream Shadow as base
Matte white from palette on inner corners (wanted to use the shimmery white for this, but it didn't apply well)
Shimmery Green all over lid and on inner lower lashline
Matte green on crease/outer V
Matte Navy blue to deepen Outer V
Black kohl liner smudged along lower lashline
Shimmery navy from palette smudged over black liner
Matte off white from Vanity palette as highlight
Ben Nye cakeliner on upper lashline

Cheeks are NYX Peach, Lips are Bare Escentual Buxom Big and Healthy lipstick in London

Thanks for looking!!
