Two for the Price of ONE!-Fotd

First Look:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Evil Shades e/s in Sinister (Bright green used one the lid.)
High Voltage e/s in Freestyle (Khaki green used in the crease.)

Second look:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Shiro cosmetics e/s in Lance the Dragon Trainer (Blue based medium purple used on lid.)
Shiro cosmetics e/s in Jiggly-Puff ( Light lavender used in the crease.)
Shiro cosmetics e/s in Mew ( Over Jiggly puff to make PINK!!!)
E.L.F. white highlighting shade
NYC eyeliner in black
Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Purple (Used on waterline.)

The second look is because I wanted to look fresh and pretty for when my fiance comes to see me today. I called my dad practically crying after an exhausting day. My shorts are ripped so I've been wearing jeans for the last week, it's been hot as balls so I'm dying. My Dad told my fiance who called me and told me he was coming to see me so we could go find the local wal-mart. YES! SHORTS SO I DON'T DIE. IN THIS AWFUL HEAT.
I wandered around today after my classes instead of going straight back to my dorm. I found the Taco Bell as well as few other college friendly eateries. I didn't find the shops but I believe they are farther down instead of JUST off campus which is where I was. :3 I'm getting a picture of the black squirrels that live on the Kent Campus, they are really cute and look like kittens. KITTENS! What kind of nonsense is that?

What ordinary animals do you get excited about seeing?

Pin-up till Sun up-FOTD

Today is my first day of classes. I did the schedule so I have most of my classes in the afternoon. I'm a night owl and I usually can't sleep until later in the night/morning even when I wake up early. My new bed is ok, I seem to fall asleep faster here then I did at home. Maybe it's because I'm not gazing lovingly/creepily at my fiance while he sleeps?
I'm wearing minimal make-up today because yesterday I did a full face but it melted off as soon as I walked outside. No full face because I have no face make-up on.

What I used:

High Voltage e/s in Rule Breaker ( Soft peachy-orange used on the lid.)
High Voltage e/s in Heart Throb (Red/orange with green sparkles in it used in the crease.)
E.L.F. white highlighing shade
NYC Liquid eyeliner (No other eyeliner since it was nasty yesterday when I did wear some.)

Ladies my skin is looking pretty dull and is breaking out a bit on my cheeks. What's a good scrub or home remedy that I can use to brighten my skin again? It used to look so radiant. :(

Friday, August 27, 2010


I wore this the other day when I was running errands so I didn't get a picture until I re-did this today. I was sitting in my dorm thinking about what I wanted to wear when I decided aw what the hey I'd do my make-up before I wandered around campus. Yesterday I moved in to my dorm at Kent State University. It was the second time I'd ever been there so I was REALLY new. I love the campus, I love my dorm and I especially love how nice everyone is. I'm a night own so it's extra cool that everything food wise is open till three. I live in a sleepy suburb where stuff closes at nine when it's suppose to, the only thing that's open past midnight is the wal-mart, Denny's, and a few fast food places.
Monday is when my classes start I can't wait for those.
My fiance will be joining me in the spring and so might my younger brother if he get's his GED on time. My younger brother (19) has issues with authority because of his ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder) which makes it hard for him to go to/deal with school. Hopefully college will be good for him and have a different feeling over High school. :D

What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
High Voltage e/s in Pirate (Dark sparkly green used on the lid.)
High Voltage e/s in Starbreaker (Bright lime green beautiful used in the crease and over the pirate.)
E.L.F. Shimmery White ( Used on the brow bone.)
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero
NYC Liquid liner in black

Nyx Good ole thaila.

I hipe you guys don't mind me blogging a bit about my life. I'm really excited to be at Kent but I'm extra glad it's only forty five minutes away. :D
Give away post soon I'm super glad to say.

Pink Heels and purple dress-Fotd

I wore this yesterday to drinks with my friend. She called me while I was getting ready and yelled into the phone " Wear bright obnoxious make-up! We're gonna be hot tonight!" I chuckled and said "Honey I always wear bright and obnoxious make-up." She laughed so hard I realized she had already been drinking. My fiance and I had fun even though the bar we went to was pretty dead. The bar is more like a dive but the drinks are mixed really nicely.
I really liked the look so I decided to try it to wear today. Jasmine the owner of High Voltage talked to me on twitter and told me the colors I used were Satin colors which was why I was having trouble with them. *face palm* Silly me! I wasn't paying attention to what I was using. Satins don't usually go well with PE because they are a matte base with shimmer. (Am I describing this right?)

What I used:

L'oreal Studio Secrets Magic Base
Hard Candy Concealer Palette
E.L.F. Shimmer Stick in Pink Lemonade
Fyrinnae Mineral Foundation in Opal

Nyx Jumbo e/s Pencil in Purple
High Voltage e/s in Pink Heels (Tangerine Pink used on the lid.)
High Voltage e/s in Alter Ego (Pink based purple used in the crease. It's a really great purple I love it.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Faerie Realm (Sheer lavender highlighting color used in the brow bone.)
Milani Eyeliner in Black
NYC liquid eyeliner in black

NYX round Lipstick in Thaila

I hope you all are having a good day! I'm waiting for the boy to get home so I'm watching Charmed and trolling make-up blogs. :3

Storm on the Seas-fotd

My second look with High Voltage and I like the products. I think that you should use a creamier base like NYX jumbo pencil or High Voltage Base with my pixie epoxy they applied a little patchy ( that and I used a smaller brush then I usually do.) So I tried the nyx pencil under my eye and the shadows were brighter as well as blended better.
I really trying to keep my mind on other things so I don't freak out from school. My fiance has been very supportive but keeps telling me how much he's going to miss me. It's literally killing me to leave him behind. My best friend just asked me to transfer to her school. Kent and Bowling Green are similar in many ways but BG is all the way in Toledo where Kent is only an hour away. I can't lie and say I haven't been considering it but I dunno there has to be more then one reason to leave a school. *huffs*

What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
High Voltage e/s in November Rain ( Used on the inner corner of the lid.)
High Voltage e/s in Wild Night (Bright blue used all over the lid and slightly covering above shadow.)
High Voltage e/s in Date Night (What I thought was a navy is really more of a dark/black teal used in the crease.)
Nyx Jumbo eyeshadow pencil in Milk
Milani e/l in black
NYC liquid liner

Nyx Round Lipstick in Circe

Thank you for all your support and advice ladies. It means a lot to me. *group hug*

Creatures of Silent Hill-Contest Entry For Fancy Geek

Silent Hill is one of the scariest games I've ever witnessed people play. I'm not much of a gamer so I usually just watch people play because I become to emotionally distressed to actually play. I know it's silly but I get to anxious to play RPGs. *shrugs* If you can't tell that's not me in the pictures that's my younger brother. I jokingly call him my "little big brother" or "big ugly buddy" since he is about six feet two. I had to stand on a stool to take these pictures lol.

What I used:
White Halloween Grease Paint mixed with Foundation ( Applied on half of the face*
SLEEK Bohemian palette (Greens, browns and blacks used to make the skin look rotted.)
Tissue paper over Lash Glue ( Lash glue spread over area then the tissue paper was applied over to make the skin look rotted, torn and wounded.)
Fake Blood ( To dye the tissues because they were white. Black was added to add depth.)
NYX eyeshadow in Dark brown ( Added around eyes, chin, and cheeks to contour.)

This was slightly difficult to do because my brother is rather sweaty. So whenever I applied make-up to his forehead it would slip off once I went to pat it down. I also ruined a towel with fake blood since he didn't want it to drip on to his shirt. The picture that is red was taken with no flash on the camera and the red light on a head lamp focused on his face. He made several funny faces that made his neck look broken but they freaked me out to much to post. This didn't take as much time as you think, it took me about twenty minutes minus the photography time.
I should have made him "fresher" looking since a lot of the zombies/ ghouls in the game are more... red and gory then this but he yelled at me when I brought the red lipstick out to put on his face. *rolls eyes* Brothers.
Miss Cacau I hope you like this. I'll probably do a "pretty" Zelda themed look next. :3

Last Living Souls-FOTD + Haul

I had finished with my hair when I realized I should check the mail for my High Voltage order. To my joy it arrived today with out being damaged by the rain. When I opened the package one of the eyeshadows had leaked slightly but it was only on the invoice and not on any of the shadows. I was surprised at how complex and shimmery the eyeshadows looked in Heartthrob one of the red eyeshadows I could see the vein of green shimmer running through it. I did receive some free samples with more order which is always a bonus. I was able to pick the samples I wanted but I only picked one out and told Jasmine to surprise me. Jasmine is the owner of High Voltage I talk to her all the time on twitter, she is super nice. When I applied the shadows the went on very creamily and blended beautifully.

Blog Neglect? No! College!

Hi-ho everyone, in a short few days I will be moving to Kent State University to get my Bachelor's in English. This week will mostly be consumed with packing, unpacking,chasing after my parents to take me home and crying hysterically. I won't have a lot of time to blog until I'm settled into my dorm room. I'll try and post when I can but I might not be able to reply to comments or comment on all of your blogs.
:D I hope everyone is having a good day!

Midnight Cupcakes- Fotd

My sisters and I have little to do. Our lives consist of sewing, laughing at mens petty jokes and finding a nice husband. As a woman of society we find little joy in our lives. There is one bright spot in our dull lives, it started at a simple craving then it grew into a tea party. After our parents, servants and butler is asleep we sneak into the kitchen and eat as many fairy cakes as we can. It may seem like a simple indulgence to you but to us it's a moment of freedom life rarely grants us. Soon we'll all be married off to suitors our father chose this is what's left of our child hood. We will cherish it always.

Sorry for the slightly sad story and the not so good full faced shot. Freya was looking so cute though and I wanted to take a picture with her. She isn't enjoying the new kitten, the little snit likes harassing Freya.

What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Fyrinnae e/s Digital Faerie ( Used all over lid.)
Evil Shades e/s Wanderflower ( A darkened teal used as the crease color.)
Evil Shades e/s Sinister (Green used over pixie epoxy to make upper eyeliner.)
Milani eyeliner in Black

Fryinnae Lip Luster Lollypop-pop

Anyone seen the swatches of the new Fyrinnae collection on twitter? They are magnificent.

I love GOLD-Fotd

This is dedicated to Mindy of Painted also known as HovercatMittens on twitter. I don't know if you've noticed but she really likes gold. (Plus it looks rocking on her.) Sorry for the short entry I have packing to start. I'm leaving for college next Thursday. I'm also sorry for looking like a douche in the full faced picture. It looks very strange but I wanted to show off my nail polish. :D

What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Fyrinnae e/s in Aztec Gold ( A soft gold or is it green? Used on the lid with a flat shadow brush.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Druid Werewolf ( A gold brown used in the crease with a fluffy domed brush.)
Fyrinnae e/s in French Vanilla Shake ( My favorite highlighting shade.)
NYC liquid eyeliner
L'oreal HIP eyeliner in Chrome Gold
Milani eyeliner in Black

Fyrinnae Lip luster Lollypop-pop

Nail Polish-
Hard Candy Mr. Wrong

I took advantage of the Morgana Minerals coupon yesterday. I have only one of her lipsticks but none of her eyeshadows so I order several Lip Sticks in a pot (one is for the give away.) and a few of her eyeshadows. I'm really excited. I hope everything arrives before I leave. :/ I do plan on going home often but still...
How were your college days? Were you the party? Did you join a sorority? Or were you a social recluse like I'm planning on being. :D

Blue is the Color that Lives in Side Me- FOTD + Kitteh

This little black kitten is the most trouble we've had in the house since my youngest brother was a baby. She likes climbing up walls, chewing on wires and giving me heart attacks when she walks on the ledge of our stairs. This kitten is a fucking dare devil. She's cutest when she sleeps, not so cute when she's clawing my feet. (You can see her clawing my feet in one of the above pictures.)
Anyway I placed an oder with High Voltage Cosmetics yesterday night. The owner Jasmine is really sweet and a great person to talk to on twitter. I'd been admiring her shadows for a while so I bought several samples. She is having a two for one eyeshadow deal right now so go and buy!
You should also check out Evil Shades which has free shipping right now. Morgana Minerals has a 25% off coupon on twitter that works through till later on tonight. Veronica of Hi-Fi cosmetics is taking a break till September and she is having a really awesome sale as well. Sadly Aromaleigh is closing forever today. I hope you got your fill of sparkle. ( I know i didn't.)
Enough of my blathering on to the look!

What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Hi-Fi cosmetics e/s in Overdose ( Beautiful, rich dark blue used on the lid.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Nori ( A complex navy blue used in the crease.)
E.L.F. eyeliner in Black ( Smudged along the lower lash line.)
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero
N.Y.C. Liquid eyeliner in Black

Simple Tea Rose

Hard Candy Mr. Right ( Deep nearly black blue.)

I had a picture of the nails but they looked silly. :(
I'm terrible at applying nail polish. I apply to little or to much then it dries funny or I go to pick something up and it gets dented. Pooey. What's the right way to apply nail polish? Should there be a lot on the brush or just a little? Thank you ladies!

Daughter of Hades-FOTD

When I was young we started studying Greek mythology in school. I felt drawn to the subject and the idea of Gods and Goddesses who made mortal mistakes. Athena was my favorite, she was strong, brave and smart. All the things I, a cry baby who couldn't stand up for herself,wanted to be like. After we stopped studying my interest in the subject never waned. I had a book on the Greek Gods that literally lost it's binding because I read it so much. I watched Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief today which made me remember my love of the Greek mythos. It was actually really good. I really liked the actors that played the gods. Also Hades as a Metal band member oh my god yes. He looked amazing. Sean Bean was in it as Zeus oh jeez I freaked a bit, I don't know why he was such a douche though.

What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Evil Shades e/s in Zombie ( Blood stains and gold go great together as an eyeshadow I used this on my lid.)
Fyrinnae e/s in The Witches Brewery ( Black based with red shimmer used in the crease.)
Fyrinnae e/s in French Vanilla Shake ( The perfect highlighter shadow used on the brow bone.)
Milani eye liner in Black
N.Y.C. eyeliner in black

Estee Lauder Lipstick in Filmstar

What's your favorite mythos? Your favorite legend or tall tale?

She Who Knows the Sky- Fotd

It's been a boring day. I slept in really late then cleaned the house like usual. Nothing much to do except morn over the lose of our internet. It was turned off by the storm we had last night so now I'm just borrowing from the neighbors. I'm going slightly insane since their internet lags, is very slow and often times kicks me off blogger whilst I am typing. Douche bags. I'll probably bike/walk to the library near me just so I can read other peoples blogs.
I'll probably go crazy if we don't get it back soon. (Scratch that I'll just be doing normal none internet things like swimming or playing video games on my N64. lulz.)
Btw do you like my "oh hai" non-chalant face? Idk where that came from.
What I used today:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Hi-Fi cosmetics e/s in Terror in the Depths ( A medium purple with blue sparkles used on the lid.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Parental Advisory ( Similar blue based color family as lid shade but darker/deeper used in the crease.)
Hi-Fi cosmetics e/s in Super Sonic Over Drive ( A bright nearly neon blue used to line the eyes.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Faerie Realm ( A sheer lavender highlight shade used on the brow.)
Milani eyeliner

Fyrinnae Lip Luster in Lollypop-pop

What would you guys do without the internet? Go stir crazy? Do the things you've always promised yourself you would?

Accidental Pastels- Fotd

I don't like how this looked nor do I like how this photographed. Meh, it seemed like a good idea at the time but I really really don't like this look. Not one bit. No ma'am. I think the pink was the problem. :/

What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Hi-Fi cosmetics e/s in Drunken Kiss ( A soft shimmery pink used on the inner corner and blended to the lid.)
Hi-Fi cosmetics e/s in Pixies ( Almost matte soft lavender used on the outer corner.)
Hi-Fi cosmetics e/s in Cheap Tricks ( Matteish light green used in the crease.)
Hi-Fi cosmetics e/s in Super Sonic ( Bright blue used in the outer crease to tie the purple to the green.)
Hi-Fi cosmetics e/s in Let it Snow ( shimmery sheer white with snow like glimmer used on the brow bone.)
N.Y.C. liquid eyeliner in black
Urban Decay 24/7 in Zero

Morgana Mineral Lipstick in Azalea Blue

Ok so I've been watching loads of vlogbrothers videos and now I'm talking really really fast. I can't help it. Even in my head I'm talking fast. Goodness. What do you guys think? Do you like it? What should I have done to salvage this look?

Pokemon Stadium Battle- Fotd + New kitteh

That little black thing laying next to my brother would be our new kitten named Ziva. My brother dislikes the name so we're probably going to rename her. She is very lazy and has an attitude of epic proportions. She hissed at my cat Freya who is not only older but also bigger then she is. Freya blew her off but was a little annoyed with this spunk of a kitten. My parents got her from a family friend. I wish they had gotten a cat from our local humane society but my mother thinks they're to expensive. Freya was a rescue cat so I don't understand why she wasn't willing to spend a bit more for a cat that REALLY needed a home. :/
Abby doesn't know what to think of the new kitten. The kitten ignores all the other dogs but has taken to stalking Abby. I think they'll become friends even though Abby enjoys Freya's company more.

What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Shiro Cosmetics e/s in Acid ( Used on the inner corner with a flat synthetic brush, this is a BRIGHT yellow green.)
Shiro Cosmetics e/s in Bulbasaur ( A grass green used on the rest of the lid and outer crease corner then up a bit.)
Shiro cosmetics e/s in Squirtle ( A bright blue used on an angled brush on the crease and blended down and added again.)
Shiro cosmetics e/s in Meowth ( Sparkly ivory used on the brow bone.)
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in flipside ( Used on the waterline.)
N.Y.C. liquid eyeliner in Black

Nyx Round Lipstick in Circe
Estee Lauder Lipstick in Tiger's Eye

This look also looks AMAZING with purple lipstick. I found my barely used tube of Nyx's Medussa which is a dark sparkly purple and it looked so good with this. So if you are a little bit more daring then I apply purple/violet lipstick and be fierce. :D What should I wear/do next? I'm having a "make-up block" does anyone have any pictures/suggestions? *gives puppy dog eyes* Pwweeeeaaaassseee?
