Birds of a Feather: Greens

It’s a Saturday swatch party at my place and everyone is invited πŸ™‚

I’ve had quite a backlog of my Birds of a Feather series that I’ve been meaning to post… so I’m procrastinating on packing for my move by playing with my makeup! Today I have jewels to show off: my emeralds! Now not all of these areΒ emerald, but these are my dark greens to my weird olives. I love green- it really helps show off the green in my hazel eyes. Alas, I rarely wear it as anything other than liner. I just can’t seem to get a fully green eye look to work on me! Any tips and tutorials from you guys would be loved ❀

Birds of a Feather: Blues & Greens

Happy Tuesday and welcome to another installment of ‘Birds of a Feather’! This time I moved on to my eyeshadow collection and catalogued my blues and greens. I’ll go back to my lipstick collection soon, no worries! There’s just so many reds that are ever so slightly different that it’s taking a bit more time than usual. Isn’t that always the problem with reds, haha πŸ˜‰

Anyways, onto today’s colors!

Face of the Day / Eye of the Day

I hope everyone is having a good week so far! Today I have a face of the day / eye of the day photo for you! I’m trying to do a “no repeat” Novemeber sort of thing and use everything in my collection at least once. I have so many eyeshadows and lipsticks that I tend to default to my favorite ones. Forcing myself to do a unique look every day will help me really use all my products, discover hidden gems, and help me findΒ which things I can destash πŸ™‚

Massive Copper/Rose Gold/Bronze Indie Eyeshadow Post ~ Silk Naturals, Geek Chic, Victorian Disco, Dark Matter Makeup, Looxi (& one Stila)

The title says it all, really πŸ™‚
In anticipation of ultra-cute indie companyΒ Hello Waffle‘s brand new Blushed collection (ROSE GOLDSSSS!!!) I swatched every single coppery and rose gold loose pigment shadow (and one Stila) trying to see if I already own anything comparable. Thank goodness I don’t, because my hunger for rose golds makes me want the whole shebang πŸ™‚

Anyways, this will be a very pic heavy post! There are 10 eyeshadows from Silk Naturals, Geek Chic Cosmetics, Victorian Disco, Dark Matter Makeup, and Looxi Beauty.

channel your inner space queen


Face of the day! Aka finally found time to see Jupiter Ascending and I wanted to channel my own inner sparkly space queen (in a more subtle way of course πŸ˜‰ ) Also, WHOA what a movie! The costumes and visuals were, quite literally, out of this world! And I love space goth/David Bowie-esque Eddie Redmayne! It was bonkers but I totally loved it.
Makeup deets after the cut…
