The Legend of Zelda Series: Midna (Real Form)


It has taken me a really long time to get this post done. I procrastinated for sooo long but I finally did the Midna look. I want to do a second Midna look, as this one was mostly inspired by Midna's real form (more specifically by her eyes). Midna, the Twilight Princess, is such a great character. She is cheeky, stubborn, yet somehwat graceful and kind towards the end. In her real form, she looks so cool! I would totally want to cosplay as her!

Inspiration pictures (not my pictures, they were found on Google search):

Products Used 
-ELF Eyelid Primer
-MAC 'Blacktrack' Fluidline
-Black matte shadow (Urban Decay's Blackout)
-Make-Up Forever #92 Eyeshadow
-Shiro Cosmetics 'Midna' Eyeshadow
-L'oreal Lineur Intense
-KKCenterhk ESA88 Lashes
-Artistry mascara
-Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream
-NARS Sin Blush
-Illamasqua 'Kontrol' Lipstick
-Revlon 'Decadent' Lipgloss


1. With a pencil liner or gel liner, make a line just above the crease. You can make the outline and then proceed to go over it with a matte black eyeshadow. (My line is really not perfect at all...but whatever)
2. Apply a dark, matte purple on the eyelid.
Then make a wing from the edge of the eye to connect to the line that is on the crease.
3. Line the upper lash line with either a liquid liner or gel liner.
Then line the outer half of the lower lash line with a black matte eyeshadow.

 4. Apply mascara, and if you wish, you can also apply some false lashes.
5. Finally, apply the same purple shadow on the outer part of the lower lash line. For the sake of the name, I also applied Shiro Comestics eyeshadow in 'Midna' on the inner half of the lower lash line.

And now you are done ♥

This look is mostly inspired by the shape of her eyes, but next time I will do a look inspired the colors she wears. You could wear something like this for cosplaying or for whatever you like :)

See you next time!

Fyrinnae Tutorial: Flirty Valentine

Hello ♥ With Valentine's day around the corner, I thought I would do a couple of eye looks for the occasion. I am not going to lie, Valentine's Day is not my favorite day of the year. I hate the commercialization of the holiday. I do like what the day represents: love and friendship. I therefore want to dedicate my Valentine inspired looks to all those I love. I also want to dedicate it to all of you my readers, who are so kind to me and who have given me the support and confidence to keep this blog up and running. ^_^

This is very simple, yet fun look.It is quick to do and you can use a variation of different color combinations. If you don't want to use pink and purple, use any other color you want.
Using My Memories Suite

Products Used
-Maybelline Color Tattoo 'Painted Purple'
-Fyrinnae 'Sakura' Eyeshadow
-Fyrinnae 'Faerie Glamour'
-Dolly Wink liquid liner
-L'oreal mascara


1. Apply a primer or base. I am using this Maybelline Color Tattoo in 'Painted Purple' as a base to add some color. It is a little sheer, but it works none the less.

2. Use a flat brush to apply 'Sakura' on the entire lid.

 3. Next, apply 'Faerie Glamour' on the crease and outer V. Blend slightly. With the same brush, apply the left over product on the lower lash line for a subtle purple effect.

4. Lastly, apply mascara and liquid liner. If you want to apply falsies, go right ahead. I didn't just to keep this look very simple.
Your look is complete! Now you can go around with a very flirty purple and pink look :D

Speaking of flirting, have you ever had an experience when someone flirts with you at the very worst time? Yesterday, I was in one of the computer labs at my Uni, and this cute guy started to flirt with me. That is fine and all, except for the fact that I had an essay due in 20 minutes and I was not done yet. I wanted to tell him to give me rain check since I was busy, but he took my behavior as me being uninterested, so he left. In my mind I was like "Nooo, come back cute guy!!!" T_T Oh well.

Les Merveilleuses LADURÉE

I just saw this a couple of days ago...I died!!
LADURÉE is known for their macaroons, and now they are releasing a beautiful collection of makeup (I believe they already had previous makeup but I am not totally sure)~ I believe that LADURÉE teamed up with the same company that
Magazine article

I am a huge geek, but I really like classical music and Victorian style house/clothing/jewelry. So when I saw this range of makeup that is to be released in Japan in a couple of days, I was soooo excited. I mean, look at the packaging of their products! The most exciting thing for me is their face/cheek products. They look really beautiful!
Face Color

Cream Cheek Base

Pressed Cheek Color (my favorite one!)
Cheek Brush
There are some other products as well that you can see in their Official Website.

I really hope that us who don't live in Japan will be able to get our hands on these products because I am in LOVE~

Do you like the packaging? Is this something you would purchase?

January Favorites

How insane! January is almost over and yet again it is time to do a monthly favorites. It is not yet the end, but close enough. I have been ridiculously busy, so I should just plan ahead of time :D

1.Reviva Labs Makeup Primer
I LOOVE this primer so much! This is my second bottle (I just recently finished my first bottle and bought 2 back ups). I always have to apply this before applying my BB cream. It definitely helps the application of foundation and it makes the foundation last a little longer. The best thing is that it doesn't break me out and that it is actually worth buying and using.

2. Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream (I need to do an updated review of this foundation)
I started using this again after I finished my Skin79 Oriental BB Cream, and although I now prefer the Skin79 one, this is still a really great BB Cream. It has a heavier coverage than the Skin79 BB cream and is a little more beige toned. I definitely love it enough to purchase it again, but I am still at odds as which of the two I would repurchase first.  @_@

3. NARS Danmari Palette (Sin)
I have had this palette for over a month now, and I can say without a doubt that my favorite color is Sin. I thought it might be too dark for me, but it really isn't. I don't own any full size NARS blushes, but I had imagined that the colors would be a little more pigmented. I can't say for sure, but regardless, I am in love with Sin. I have practically used it all month. It is such a great winter color! For swatches, go HERE.
(I used it in my Psychotic Galactic Empress look).

4. Chanel Illusion D'Ombre eyeshadow in 'Mirifique'
 I haven't had this for long, but I am totally in love with it. It is such an amazing color, I mean just look at the sparkles *~* It also doesn't crease or smudge throughout the day!

5. Wet n Wild 'Petal Pusher' Palette
Although I love the entire palette, I have mostly only been using two of the colors in the palette: the right "Eyelid" and "Crease" colors. The "Eyelid" shade is a really gorgeous purple with copper shimmer, and the "Crease" color is a dark purple with purple shimmer. To see swatches go HERE and to see an eye look using this palette go HERE.

6. Gold Eyeshadows (especially Chase from the UD 15th Anniversary Palette)
I mentioned that I have been loving gold eyeshadows. My favorite right now is Chase, which is SUPER pigmented and just a really lovely gold =3

7. Jordana Matte Lipstick in Lily Rose
I <333 this~ Not only is it a beautiful mauve/purple/pink, but it also has a great matte formula. Another great thing is that it costs less that $3! This color actually reminds me a lot of Revlon's Pink Pout matte lipstick, but this one is slightly more purple.

What are your favorites for this month?

Random FOTDs

I didn't feel like posting anything in particular today, so I thought I would just post some random pictures that I found in my computer. I haven't posted these before so here you go ^_^ Also, I just noticed how my bangs are always all over the place and weird D:<

This was today's FOTD. Here I am applying MAC Hot Gossip lipstick. It was a lazy day so I just have mascara, blush, and lipstick.

I have been obsessed with gold eyeshadow and of course I still love my Australis lipstick in 'Limited Edition 1'

All about the one color smokey eye. No lipstick, light blush.

 It was a cold day. All about the flushed cheeks and the pink lips. This is MAC Stark Naked Blush and Illamasqua Underworld lipstick.
 In a rush? Just apply a bold lip! This is MAC Up the Amp lipstick.

This is pretty random, and I know the picture quality is not that great. Oops. Hey, its better than nothing!
Have a great weekend! And expect some book reviews on my other blog this in the next two days :D
