Shiro Wednesdays: Chimera

Happy Wednesday everyone! How are you enjoying this week?

As I mentioned before, I want to dedicate Wednesdays to Shiro Cosmetics because, well...they are just awesome! I have a lot of Shiro eyeshadows so it seems only right to share how I use them!

Today's look is inspired by the Shiro eyeshadow in 'Chimera' from the Full Metal Alchemist collection. FMA is one of my all-time favorite anime and this eyeshadow brought back a lot of memories. Very sad ones...Poor Nina! If you have watched it you know what I mean. Seriously...saddest moment ever. So I want to dedicate this to Nina's Chimera form~

  1. I love that lipstick, I can't believe how cute that is, man wet n wild has really upped it's game.

    1. I know, right? I just got this too and it was my first time trying it. I was surprised it looked really great!

  2. I like the eyemake you did here, but honestly I'm spazzing over your lipstick and hairdo/hair accessory more!! XD
    Oh, and i see that you've changed your blog header. It's cute! :D

    1. Haha <3 Thank you~ Well I should have mentioned this I suppose, bu I was inspired by anime looks in general. The hair and lips/cheeks is very anime/kawaii! I am glad you like it ;)
      I did indeed change my header! Freaking finally! Haha.

  3. ooooohh yet another makeup company i'd like to try out! very nice colors you used - i also really like your hair clip thingy!!
    when i read the first couple paragraphs of this post, i got really excited cause i too watched and enjoyed Full Metal Alchemist (also have the manga) and totally remembered Nina once i saw the pic! ahhh yep, sad.
    i love the new header too (and of course your choice of font)

    1. Thank you! <3
      Haha yeah seriously FMA saddest moment!

  4. love this look!! and your hair color is so pretty :D

  5. i love the new header, so cute and so you (i suppose). my fiancé keeps nagging to watch full metal alchimist, it used 2 b his favourite animé in highschool too. seriously you two should meet. :)

    1. Thank you so much~
      Lol! You should totally watch it. I approve, and I'm sure you will make your fiance happy :)

  6. I have that lipstick and it looks amazing on you but terrible on me! Haha :) Love the look & your new banner is so cute!

    1. Ah thank you! And I am sure it does not! Sometimes I find that pinks like that can be a bit overwhelming so it can be better to pat it on gently rather than to sweep it on. You can also try putting a lip gloss over it to tone it down :)

  7. first off, you look gorgeous my darling -- i've missed your awesome blog!! second, I absolutely love your signature style and the way you wear them pigments!! third, I totally trust your opinion and your blog is the first place I visit when I need a rec for a cool indie makeup brand -- you really know your stuff!! xx
