Typically for me, by midweek Shiny New Creative Project has devolved into a mini (or maybe a meta) rut of its own. My brain it is lazy, my bed it is comfy.
Disclaimers from Part 1 apply. Unless otherwise specified, all pictures are taken in natural light (which has been variable but mostly terrible this week), and no base was used unless otherwise specified.
No swatches today -- I'm going to do a big Fyrinnae swatchathon post soon :)
TUESDAYEYE Tarnished cool gold gradient with (from lightest inner corner to darkest outer): Shinrikou, Sacred, Griffonrider and Newcastle. Outer 2/3 of lashline darkened with Sake & Sashimi.
Pixi Black Tulip pencil on waterline.
CHEEK Sleek Rose Gold
BASE Vapour Atmosphere Luminous Foundation 90 and Illusionist Concealer 000 under eyes
This was work-from-home day so I got to try out a scary new lipstick :D
LIP 1 Rimmel Kate Moss 04 -- I think I needed to go warmer on the eyes to counterbalance this; MUA consensus was that I needed a warmer (and less patchy) lip to go with the eyes. What say you? Option C: Other always welcome.
mess mélange of greens: Eternal Innocence and Boytoy, with blackened sparkle Dokkalfar to line, iridescent sheer Electric Stardust to highlight, and green-flashing-taupe Atomic Afterglow to blend edges.
LIP Shiseido Lip Lacquer Disco
CHEEK Shiseido Peony (eyeshadow single)
BASE KATE Powderless Liquid BR-C set with Guerlain Meteorites Loose Mythic. Burberry Concealer 01 undereyes.
THURSDAYEYE As well as killer greens, Fyrinnae make spectacular purples: Herbivore in the middle of the lid, blended out at either corner with Meerkat. Cuddlefish to darken outer v and airy pastel When I Grow Up lightly buffed into the socket. A touch of Freya to darken lashline.
|with flash -- horrible light today|

CHEEK Rouge Bunny Rouge Gracilis
BASE Shu Uemura Pink/Purple UV Underbase Mousse, Vapour Illusionist Concealer 000 under eyes. RBR Sea of Tranquility highlighter.
FRIDAYEYE As my whining about the crappy lighting/weather may indicate, I am so very over this whole autumn/winter thing now. Summery turquoise/teal eye with Anemone on the lid, Pteradon winged outwards from outer v and Jaguar to line. Bastet as a golden highlight on the inner corner.
CHEEK Illamasqua Katie
BASE Shu Uemura Pink/Purple UV Underbase Mousse, Burberry concealer 01 under eyes. Tiny bit of RBR liquid bronzer on high points.
