Yesterday's blue eye of the day - Sleepy Hollow and gold

Tried a blue look yesterday. I have to admit, I did enjoy it. I don't know what my thing with blue is... Maybe I just never think to use it when I'm surrounded by green and purple?

This had a rich antique feel to it. Sorta reminded me of Van Gogh's Starry Night.

This was:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
HIP Gilded duo- the gold shade only, on lid
Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow, applied wet with DuWop Payoff in crease and on lower lashline
Fyrinnae Envy Me to highlight
Urban Decay Liquid Liner in Honey
A tiny bit of Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Baked over Honey
Urban Decay 24/7 in Zero
Cover Girl Lash Blast

I really tried my best to capture the pretty gold sparkle in Sleepy Hollow.... you might need to enlarge the pictures to see it. I took a blurry one to see if it showed up better, and you can see the sparkle a little bit here:

See them? Deep teal-blue with gold microglitter? It's a pretty gorgeous color.

It did make me panic a little, though! I've learned that if I want to use Fyrinnae glittery colors in the crease that I need to apply them wet, but I'm never very precise when I apply my crease shade. I always clean up the placement and shape with my blending brush afterwards... So this time I applied it wet and when I went to blend, it wouldn't blend! The blue pigment is so strong that it was on like cement. I freaked out and grabbed a bunch of wet Q-tips to try and fix it... luckily it turned out okay! Otherwise I'd have been rocking the Mimi Bobeck blue-to-the-brows look O_o

I like blue and gold together. It has a totally different feel than the usual blue and green that I seem to gravitate toward.

I'm digging' Sleepy Hollow a lot... need to think of more ideas to use it. Bet it would make a great liner. Love the gold sparkles. I'm starting to get better at using Fyrinnae, I think!


  1. The blue and gold look great together!

  2. I love Sleepy Hollow, I've used it as a liner before with great results!

  3. I love that you're doing EOTDs too, because I've seen some you did previously to this series and I like your color choices! Plus, you're using Fyrinnae, which is my favorite stuff - now I'm going to have to get some Sleepy Hollow!

  4. Sleepy Hollow is one of my favorites. I think it pairs up nicely with just about everything but I definitely like it with gold on you. The liquid liner looked great, too.

  5. Oooh, I love that liner! Been looking for a good replacement of this one Physician's Formula liquid liner I loved and this looks like a great replacement~

    These looks are tempting me to try Fyrinnae XD

  6. Dude that is gorgeous. Hurry up and move next door to me so you can teach me your mad skills.

    I'll hook up the Dreamcast and wait for you.

  7. This is a gorgeous look, love the blue/gold combination.
    My daughter is in love with your eye makeup looks, have you considered doing tutorials for any of them?

  8. Love this colour duo! Gorgeous :)

  9. Beautiful color combo.
    I live in Holland, but I also use product from Fyrinnae. Do you ever use their Pixie Epoxy? I use it almost every day under every eyeshadow I own. The tiniest amount possible ( like you don't think there is something on your eye at all ) will do wonders for applying their glittery eyeshadows, it makes the shadow stick immediately to your eye, makes the color really intense, and no fallout through the day!!!
    (OMG, they should pay me big bucks for being their online salesperson now )

  10. I just love eyeshadow. It's such fun to play with it. I've read that blue shades are in style either now or for the Fall. I don't care what's really in style I just love to play. You do wonderful looks. Can't wait to see more. Do you have the Urban Decay Naked Collection? I'd love to see you do something with those.

  11. This is fantastic! You are so talented! Love the colours together.. <3

  12. Beautiful, the blue and gold is very ancient Eygpt, your pharaoh eotd!

  13. wow. the golden eyeliner pulls the whole look together and makes ur eyes pop! love it!

  14. You have unbelievably beautiful eyes plus the shadow application is amazing.
