Are You My Mummy?

My favorite eye shadow company has come out with more shadows…Fyrinnae.  The newest shades are Halloween inspired, but are not limited edition.  I didn’t get all of them, but I will post the shades I purchased on to The Swatch Bin soon.  This look features one of them. 

Fyrinnae describes this Arcane shade as a vibrant, gleaming emerald green.  When brought closer to light or at an angle this shade takes on an aqua, then a striking deep pink color.  In person, the color was the bright green, but in my pictures, it looks bluer.

I applied Urban Decay’s Primer Potion with my finger and used a Sigma 239 brush to put on Soft Ochre.  I blended Wedge into my crease using a Mac 217.  I then took a tiny amount of Pixy Epoxy and smoothed it onto my lid up to my crease.  I applied Are You My Mummy? on to my lid using a Mac 239 brush.  I pushed the color onto the bristles from the container’s lid. 

Using the other side of the same brush, I took Steampunk and patted it on to the outer third of my lid.  Fyrinnae has revamped Steampunk and is now an Arcane that is a gold on a black base with a pink hue that changes to an olive green.  I put a cream colored shade in the inner corner with a small shader brush.

I used a Mac 263 brush and a matte black gel liner on my upper lash line and also tightlined using this brush.  Using a Louise Young eyeliner brush, I put a peacocky blue fluidline onto my lower lashline.  I darkened the outer edge of the fluidline with Steampunk and brightened the inner edge with Nijiro.

Gorgeous Midnight Blues

Mac has released yet another limited edition collection called Mac Me Over.  The launch is huge, but has a mix of permanent and limited edition products.  I picked up a few shadows, lip products and fluidline gel liners.  This look features two of the shadows and a gel liner.

Moleskin shadow was the one shade I was least excited about but ended up liking the most.  It is a skin tone shade for me (NC45).  I typically turn to Mac’s Soft Brown, but this shade is a lighter, more neutral and works better at blending out shadows without adding color (Soft Brown tended to add color).  Moleskin can be a great highlight shade for darker skin tones.  Outré was the color I was most excited about when I bought it (online), but now I’m on the fence.  It is a mustard yellowed-brown, but I expected more mustard yellow than brown.  They are both matte shades that are nice, soft and easy to use.

I also picked up my first Mac Fluidline in Midnight Blues.  This gel liner is a lovely peacock blue.  Unfortunately sold out already in the US, which is crazy since Mac Me Over officially launched on the 25th.  For those outside of the US that want the new fluidlines, buy it fast.  Swatches of the two fluidlines I picked up from this collection are included in the pictures (no base was used).

I blended Moleskin over Urban Decay’s Primer Potion from the crease up to the brow bone.  Using a Laura Mercier Eye Crease brush, I applied Outré into my crease.  I know I’m a little toasted from running outside, but even if I weren’t, this shade is barely brown and barely mustard-yellow on my skin.  It still creates an interesting neutral eye.  To darken my crease, I added a bit of Mac’s Brun using a Louise Young LY38B.

Using a Mac 239, I applied Gorgeous Gold all over my lid, concentrating the color near the lash line.  Using a short shader brush, I patted on Manilla Paper to my inner corner and underneath my brow.  I wasn’t impressed with this eye in the least until I put on the gel liner using an INGLOT 30T brush.  In this look it may pull more green but that is because of the gold shade used underneath.
