Lorem Ipsum


It is always a treat when Fyrinnae puts out new shades.  They can make the most basic colors complex and unique.  Here are some swatches of their newer shades.  (See the Swatch Bin for shade names.)

I started out by rubbing a small amount of Too Faced Shadow Insurance onto my lid.  I still use my beloved Nars primer for my daily makeup application, but I’ve switched to TFSI for blog posts.  Urban Decay’s Primer Potion isn’t what it used to be.  The new squeeze tube packaging is just as inconvenient as the old genie bottle packaging because the product dries out faster.   I applied a thin layer of Soft Ochre Paint Pot with a Sigma E55 so the colors will appear more vibrant for the camera.

I blended Brown Down into my crease with a Louise Young LY38 brush; concentrating the color toward the outer corner.  I blended out this shade using a skin tone color from my crease up to my brow.  I dabbed a little of Fyrinnae’s Pixy Epoxy to the lid with my finger to brighten the color.  I patted on Lorem Ipsum with a Mac 329 brush on to my lid and blended lightly into the crease color.  With a Sigma pencil brush, I applied the color to my lower lash line.  I blended Half-Elf Hottie into the inner corner using a small shader brush.

Using a small pencil brush (Louise Young LY13) I put Blackout onto my upper lash liner and blended it up.  This shade was also a put on to my lower lash line.  I darkened my upper and lower lash line by using INGLOT’s gel liner.  I cleaned up the outer corner of my using Bioderma and a Q-tip. 

Electric Stardust

This is a recreated look I wore this past Friday.  I woke up late and was in a rush (more than usual).  When I’m in a rush, I always depend on Fyrinnae for quick and effortless pretty look.  I didn’t use the Pixy Epoxy base when I go to work, but I did for this post.  PE really helps the ‘glow’ of these shadows come through in pictures.

I filled in my brows with the Mac crayon.  I typically use Anastasia’s pencil during the day.  I recently purchased this hoping it will show up better in pictures.  The Anastasia pencil is better to the naked eye because it isn’t painfully obvious that I’ve filled them in.  In photos, it doesn’t look like I’ve done much of anything.

I used my go-to NARS shadow primer in my crease and up to my brow.  I applied Tete-A-Tint on my crease and up to my brow bone with a Mac 217.  I put on my highlight shade with a Mac 239 and blended it down.

I then apply the Pixy Epoxy on my lid.  With the same 239 brush, I pressed Fyrinnae’s Electric Stardust color into my brush and patted it on the inner two-thirds of my lid.  I concentrated the color on my lower lid and tapped it lightly up to my crease blending it in with Tete-A-Tint.

Using the other side the 239, I lightly pressed the darker Fyrinnae shade onto my brush.  I use the tip of the brush to create an angled outer edge and patted the color over to the light green.  I took the 217 with a little more Tete-A-Tint and blended out the hard edges.  Some of the color got wiped away so I repeated the application process with the lid shades.

Although not shown in the pictures, I kept the rest of my face neutral.  NARS Gilda blush is a coral shade.  The lip color I chose is a rose-brown shade.  My lips are extremely pigmented so the color looks brown with a hint of pink.
