So, I wore this look on Friday.  It was 7:45 in the morning when I took these pictures.  I am not a morning person!

Also, I take entirely too long to apply my makeup.  I started, with my eyes, at about 6:45 in the morning.  Holy cow!  This is the first time I've ever attempted a really dramatic smoky eye that early in the day.  Go me!

I only wish these pictures better captured the sparkly awesomeness that is Fyrinnae Steampunk.  I made the next photo a tiny bit "cooler" in temperature to try and show it more accurately.  Morning sun is so gold and warm.  I used Makeup Geek Moondust to blend above the crease and on the lowers.  I absolutely adore that shadow!  It's sort of green, taupe, and pink all at the same time...I think I'm in love.

When I was driving to work, I turned the corner, was going head on into the bright golden sun, and caught a glimpse of my unbelievably sparkly and shimmery eyes in the rearview mirror.  Needless to say, that was all I needed to do to drive up against the curb.  I am so special.

I'm getting caught up on looks, slowly but surely!  I am looking forward to being able to post looks the night of the same day that I wore them.  That will be so much easier for remembering exactly what I used and wore.  Oh yeah.

Feel free to ask questions about anything and thank you for stopping by.  :)


  1. Hey you ;)
    Mikmik here! Steampunk is awesome huh? I don't know whether to call it green or purple.
    Register your blog on bloglovin so I can follow you :)

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! I think I need Steampunk in my life. And I don't like mornings either. I especially hate getting up in the dark. So wrong.

  3. Karima! Thanks for coming over. :D *hugs* Yes, it is awesome and I agree that I have no clue what to say about the color. I was thinking it's uh gray based? But lots of green and purple and pink shimmer (I think). It's funny to not even know. I love it, though! I added a Bloglovin link at the very bottom. :) Thanks for the tip!

    Lou - thank you!! You would rock it out hard, I'm certain! Oh gosh, yeah, I can't stand getting up so early. I can actually get used to it if I'm on a steady schedule, but that doesn't ever happen where I'm at now. It's much nicer to take my time waking up!

    1. I'll be off to bed early tonight I think. It's been one of those days when you just want to shout 'Are you having a laugh!?' because everything goes wrong.

    2. Feel better! I know exactly what you mean.

  4. I NEED that LORAC lip colour... it is amazing. Totally lifts the smokey look, i can see it getting a lot of use.

    Have also experienced the "admiring my fyrinnae e/s in rearview mirror" driving hazard!! LOL


    1. You know, I had not expected to love Trendsetter as much as I do, but it's a really fab nude lippie!! The formula is wonderful, too! Ha ha - that's funny about the Fyrinnae driving hazard. They need to come with a warning label.


Please be kind. I'm happy to learn and grow, but it's also my face we're talking about! Also, no shamelessly promoting your blog or site here, please. Thank you!
