LOTD: Hippy Peacock

This is the first look I did with my Persephone eyeshadows. I found them easy to apply and easy to blend. Far Out, in particular, applied like a dream.

Roses and Sugar Violets

So it turns out that I only did my makeup twice in the week I was on holiday and because I'm still trying to learn how to use my camera the pictures were a bit hit and miss. The only look I have semi-decent pictures for is this one, using a mix of Fyrinnae and Morgana products. I hadn't used any of my Morgana stuff for a while and this reminded me how great it is. I'm now very excited for the store reopening, especially after seeing the lipstick previews on Twitter

Swatches: Persephone Minerals

There have been no posts for a while because I've been enjoying the Cornish coast with some friends. I have a couple of looks from my holiday but not many because I spent most of the week slobbing around the house we'd rented or chilling out on the beach sans makeup. Before I put up the looks, though, I wanted to share the swatches I did this morning of my Persephone Minerals sample.

LOTD: Smokin' in the City

Another simple, quick look from me. I can't seem to drag myself out of bed in time to do something more creative and still make it to work on time!

LOTD: Fairy Greens

I've not really used my Aromaleigh Lost in Faerie samples over the summer, which is a shame because they're gorgeous. I was having a green day today so I dug them out and picked out the gorgeous greens in the collection.

LOTD: Týr and the Changeling

I wanted to try a smoky eye toady, seeing as I din't have to be in work and so it didn't matter if it went wrong. I've also been wanting to use Changeling, the free sample I got with my last Fyrinnae order, ever since I swatched it.

LOTD: Nearly Nude

As much as I love playing with bright, colourful makeup, sometimes I need a simple look I can do in no time at all. I had one of those times today when I realised, as I was getting ready, that I should have left my flat about 10 minutes earlier.

LOTD: Daemon Rose

I left work a bit later than usual yesterday, so I had my first walk home in the dark since the spring. Crossing the Thames and seeing all the lights along the river always feels very autumnal to me and the colours I picked for today's makeup were also quite autumnal.

LOTD: Immortal Stardust

I've been meaning to post for several days now but have been slightly scuppered by the fact I've been trying to use my new Fyrinnae shadows. Immortality and Delvian, in particular, are gorgeous but need more careful application than my normal 'slap it on and see' approach. I decided to use Immortality again today. As well as trying to be more precise with my application, I decided to follow the example of several makeup bloggers and apply my eyeshadow before the rest of my makeup. It worked really well in terms of making it easier to clean up the look but I couldn't believe how much difference putting some blusher on made to the overall look.

Swatches: Fyrinnae

I'm a bit behind on posting and reading blogs - I was in Canterbury for a couple of days and then I got food poisoning :( I'm still a feeling a bit uninspired makeup wise but my latest Fyrinnae order arrived today so I decided to swatch that.
