Mephisto makeup tutorial feat. Fyrinnae and Brazen Cosmetics

Hey guys,

A couple of weeks ago I potsed a small haul on my most recent Fyrinnae purchase, and that included Mephisto: one of the most popular shadows of this indie company! I also promised you that I’d definitely be doing a tutorial with it ;), and since I am a lady of my word, here it is:

I haven’t changed the format of my video tutorials, just in case you were wondering. By accident, I deleted the intro/end movie that I had recorded, but since the gist…the tutorial that is, was as good as any other, I figured you won’t miss my ramblings too much, and can enjoy the makeup application part nonetheless ;)!

See you soon!


Episode 4 of The Indie Diaries: Fyrinnae collection

Hey guys!

So next up on the indie series is Fyrinnae. If you are new to my blog: I am doing a series on youtube, called The Indie Diaries, about my favourite indie makeup brands. Scroll down to find the episodes on Concrete Minerals, Darling Girl Cosmetics and Brazen Cosmetics, or just go to my youtube channel where I have a playlist entitled, surprise surprise: “The Indie Diaries” :P.

Today’s guest star is Fyrinnae. There is a long overdue post I have to do on some additional eyeshadows that I got in the meantime, since my previous post on Fyrinnae, which you can find here. Not to mention, I’d like to write separately about Pixie Epoxy once…some day, ah…But I do show them all in this video, so if you have 10 min, go ahead and click “play” =>

Thank you for watching! Don’t forget to subscribe if you want to follow my further youtube adventures 🙂


Random makeup looks

Hi guys!

Ever since I made an Instagram account (which you can find here), I sort of stopped doing makeup look posts on the blog. And since some of you probably don’t follow my Instagram/Facebook pages, I decided to show you some of my personal favourites from the last weeks 🙂

Let’s see, where shall we start…

Today’s makeup seems like a good start.


I am hopelessly in love with Ermahgerd! from Darling Girl Cosmetics. It’s pastel orange with a green-silvery shift going on. Just to die for! I did tell you that out of fear that DG may discontinue this shade, I got a back up of it. I mean, you never know with small indie brands. One day your favourite shade is there, the next one…BAM, gone! I didn’t want to risk it 🙂

In the outer corner I used an eyeshadow I haven’t showed you officially yet, it’s called Dressed-to-kill, by Fyrinnae. It’s a gorgeous oliver green loaded with gold sparkles, very pretty!

The next look is blue-purple with a new shade I got from a sale by Concrete Minerals recently. The shade is called Angel Dust and it’s really lovely, actually exceeded my expectations. It’s a duochrome, supposedly shifting between lilac and aquamarine. I find it to be pink rather than purple, but beautiful nonetheless. It looks very flattering and the duochrome is definitely visible!

I also used Unity by CM on the outer half of the lid. To make the transition between Angel Dust and Unity a bit smoother, I sprinkled some Sugaprill Lumi in the middle of the lid. On the lower lash line used Sugaprill Hellatronic.

The next look is really colourfull, but I did love wearing it quite a bit!

Purple and  mint green is one of my all time favourite combos. The purple is actually a sample gift  I received with a Fyrinnae order some time ago. It is hands down one of the most intense, bright and gorgeous purples I have ever had. It’s called Debonair, in case you want to go to the Fyrinnae website asap and order kilos of it! hehe. The mint green shade is also Fyrinnae => Jade Ghost.

And for the next two looks, I go back to the stunning duochromes of Dargling Girl Cosmetics.

Dirty Limerick is such a gorgeous complex shade. It is lime, it is turquoise, it is reddish-brown…simply magical. To intensify the lime green even more, I applied Concrete Minerals Toxic pro matte shade in the inner corner. I would use any excuse to dive into Hellatronic, and since using it as a lid colour is not an everyday option, I like using it as an accent in my looks…mostly the lower lash line.

Basket Case is the last duochrome I would like to show you today. It’s purple with a very strong turquoise shift. I am really loving this shade!


I think you can even see the duochrome effect on the photos. Ah, just ah! L-O-V-E!!!

Well, those were my latest makeup looks and I hope you found something in there to inspire you tomorrow when you do your makeup ;)..Or sparkle your interest in indie makeup brands.

I have been thinking of doing a get-ready-with-me post soon, using loose eyeshadows from indie brands…what do you think? Let me know if there is a brand or an eyeshadow you are particularly interested in! 🙂 Also, general questions in that respect are more than welcome!

Till soon!
