Skip To The End...

Inspiration left you? Yea. Its more than I can do some days to think of two colours. Not even kidding. Luckily Twitter is almost there and Eplefe suggested green and white and Pixie suggested green and purple. I hate green as you all know (bwaaaaaaaahaha!) so these were a bit of a struggle:

Lid: Fyrinnae Blue Footed Booby
Crease and lower lashline: Fyrinnae Danse Macabre
Outer V: Dark green from Wet & Wild Cool as a Cucumber palette
Liner: Kryolan Aquacolours

Sleek blush in Rose Gold

Darling Girl Liquid Kisses in Delight

I LOVE this combo and look all round. I'm sure Eplefe had a more green and white shadow combo in mind but I really wanted to do white liner. I'd never actually worn Danse Macabre before, and shame on me because it is immense.

Lid: Living Dead Grrl Derby Wife
Crease: MUA Shade 9
Under Browbone: Living Dead Grrl Robot Club
Liner: Fyrinnae Arcane Magic Madame and Eve

Darling Girl blush in Fantasia

Gosh Light & Shine Lip Glaze in 05 (purple with purple and blue sparkles)

I normally go a green lid and purple crease when I do green and purple so I thought I'd change it up a wee bit.Robot Club looks a little washed out in this picture, which is a shame. Oh well, my mummy said she liked this look! :D

Lid: Living Dead Grrl Fantasy Bazaar
Crease: Living Dead Girl Skip To The End/Whip It
Under browbone: Robot Club
Highlight: Fyrinnae Moon Child (applied sparingly!)
Liner: Living Dead Grrl Heeello Brian

NYC Blushables Creme Stick in Pink Flash

Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Shangri-La

I had to do a full look with my new Living Dead Grrl colours (review here) and unfortunately it was a quickie so it's nothing spectacular. But look how pretty Fantasy Bazaar is! Squee!

Lid: Hi-Fi Between the Stars
Crease: Darling Girl Making Merry
Liner: Darling Girl Honey Pot
Highlight: Matte pink from Wet & Wild Lust palette

The blending in the crease for this look really pissed me off - it was heading in the direction of Big Fat Fail so I left it. Irl, however, Making Merry and Between the Stars really compliment each other as the shift is quite similar. I also wore Making Merry on the lid with a neon pink crease and Evil Shades Suffocation as a highlight but it wouldn't photograph! Waaaa! :(

I have some pretty things coming in the mail for me hopefully this week, which means some more reviews and swatches for y'all. As I'm sure some of you know, there's going to be a biiig eyeshadow swatch collab (where I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to, but probably will swatch ALL my greens because I can't leave any out) and I'm working on swatching my lip product collection too. Also I have a day off this week so I can do a fun, ker-azy look too!
