Wainbows :)(aka rainbow)

Please ignore my facial expression.

1- Your full face routine.. I go moisturiser, foundation, powder, contour (though i didn't do much contouring here). Follow with a base on the eyelid.

2- Grab your brightest yellow eyeshadow and make a triangle on your inner corner, followed by an arch that ends where the line would be if you drew one form the tip of your eyebrow to the outer corner of your eye.

3- Get a very light, shimmery yellow and put that above the bright yellow on your brow bone, blend them together. Add some more light yellow (just a little) on the inner corner and blend. You should now have a sort of yellow gradient line with a naked lid :P

4- Grab some gold pigment/eyeshadow and use just a tiiiiiny bit next to the yellow on your inner corner.

5- Using a yellowish orange, apply some next to the gold, closer towards the middle of the eyelid, blend.

6- Using a more red toned orange, apply next to the previous colour, almost at the middle...

7- Apply a nice big chunk of red next to the orange and blend!

8- Apply a hot pink next to the red and blend (make sure you are blending into the red next to it AND the yellow above)

9- I didn't have a proper purple so i used magenta, next to the hot pink, blend.

10- Use your indigo on the outer corner and then a very, very small amount in the crease. Blend.

11-Grab a grass green and make a line from the outer corner of your eye to the tip of your eyebrow, blend.

12- apply a line of mid blue on your lower lash line, starting from the middle and ending as a flick on the outer edge of your eye, blend.

13- apply a mint green from your inner corner on your lower lash line to meet the blue, blend.

14- Apply a very thin line of black eyeliner on the top lid, and on the inner corner of your bottom lashine, extend to a small point.

15- now apply some blue eyeliner on your waterline aaannnd...

16- lots and lots of black mascara.

eyes are done!!


I used a bright pink blush extending along my cheekbones, a darker blush underneath that for a little contour type thing, a highlighter on top of all that, and then blended like an insane blending machine.


Apply maybelline forever metallics lipstick in ruby lustre(luster), blot. follow with revlon juicy licious or whatever its called in strawberry.. kisses? it tubbed off the tube.

and you're done

i used fyrinnae pigments, a modelista palette, the aforementioned lip products, revlon mascara and eyeliner and a designer brands bronzer. Oh and a revlon highlighter.

Fools Gold

Well my Fyrinnae pigments just arrived and this is the first look I've done with them!
It uses Steampunk, Gilded Wings, Pyro, Finnegans Wake and Winter, Again for the eyes and Rvlon 'Just Bitten' Lip tint in blood orange for the lips, with The Body Shop Lip Gloss in Mango. I also used Revlon Powdery lustrous whatever. i forget its proper name but its basically highlighter. And Revlon fabulash waterproof mascara in blackest black

Once again, i'm still working on blending but it looks pretty damn good if i say so myself.
Oh and I'm not wearing foundation.


1- Apply Revlon super lustrous powder to cheekbones, forehead and chin (sparingly, we don't want to be sparkly)
2-using a medium sized eyeshadow brush, apply Steampunk up to a little tiny bit above the crease of your eyelid.
3- Apply Gilded Wings over Steampunk on the inner corner of your eyes and blend.
4- (I used the same brush but you might find it easier to use something smaller) Apply Pyro in your crease and blend blend blend.
5- Apply Finnegans Wake on your brown bone and blend down into the Pyro and Steampunk.
6-Apply Winter, Again on your inner corners (but only very slightly) and blend.
7- Curl lashes and apply revlon fabulash waterproof mascara in blackest black to upper lashes only.

1- Apply Revlon Just Bitten in Blood Orange and blot, repeat if necessary.
2- Apply The Body Shop lip gloss in Mango over the top
