Playing with Fyrinnae Futuristic Glamrock

I have this thing about blue... I'm sure I've mentioned it before. I probably mention it every time the topic of blue eyeshadow comes up. I just have a hard time wearing blue eyeshadow. But then there was Futuristic Glamrock. Futuristic Glamrock changed everything.

This was my first time using it as a main color:



My skin always looks so orange and red with the flash... But, these were taken at night and natural light wasn't an option.

This was:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Futuristic Glamrock wet on lid
Black shadow in crease (can't remember which, may have been Stila Ebony.)
Fyrinnae Bifrost on lower lash line
Kat Von D Liquid Liner in Black Metal Love
Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara

I'm not sure if you can really tell from these pictures, but Futuristic Glamrock is made of tiny iridescent sparkles. It's mainly a light turquoise blue but it reflects a deeper blue at some angles and purple/pink at other angles. It's way prettier than I ever imagined it would be. I don't know why I waited so long to get it. Bifrost is also spectacular- yellow with subtle iridescent multicolored sparkles. For some reason this look reminds me of ska. One more thing worth mentioning: the cashier at the grocery store- who was actually in the next lane, not my cashier!- came over to tell me how crazy she was about my blue eyeshadow. She said she loved the color and had one sort of like it that was almost gone. I wish I could have talked to her longer about it but she had a lot of customers in line. This cashier usually compliments my nails and makeup... I bet she's one of us!


The next day I was feeling like I needed a little more color, so I tried this combination:


I think the purple shadow brings out the purple color shift in Futuristic Glamrock. You can see it a little in the first flash picture, in the shadowy area near the outer crease.

This was:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Futuristic Glamrock wet on lid
Fyrinnae Danse Macabre wet in inner corner
Ben Nye Amethyst in crease and lower lashline
Fyrinnae Bifrost on lower lashline
Milani Eye Tech liner in Black
Cover Girl Lash Blast

I love Futuristic Glamrock and Danse Macabre together! They're both duochromey-iridescent and they totally play off of each other. I need a full size Danse Macabre, it's so freakin' gorgeous. Bright grassy green with yellow gold pearly duochrome. Super smooth and amazing pigment.

Now I have a question for Fyrinnae fans. Love Potion. What do I use it with? Every look I try to do with it ends up looking bland or just odd. I can never think of what to combine it with to make it shine. I need ideas for combos! I'm mystified by this color.

  6. I don't own Love Potion, but looking at swatches here's my stab at some color combos:

    Love Potion on iner 2/3 of lid with a warm purple (Forbidden Lover? Princess of Darkness?) on outer 1/3 and crease with a light turquoise lower lashline (Bali Mynah?) and Randy Ferret as liner.

    Love Potion on inner corner and inner lower lashline, Parental Advisory on the rest of the lid, Freya in the crease and Aztec Gold on the lower lashline

    Love Potion on lid, Evocation (or similar cool grey) on crease/lower lashline and black in outer V and as liner

    Love potion on inner 2/3 of lid, burgundy-wine (Incubus or Tapir) on outer 1/3 and crease, black to deepen crease, foresty green lower lashline (maybe)

    That's all I can think of right now, hopefully one of those is useful.

  11. When I was a kid in the 60's, I started playing with mom's liquid eyeliner. I was utter crap with it, and ever since, I've used either shadow or a pencil for eyelining. I have NEVER seen such beautiful technique as you have. Do you have a how-to for the way you get such a perfect cat-eye?

  12. I really like the first look - and then I scrolled down and the second is sooooo Pretty!!! And I'm jealous of your eyeliner cause I just can't get mine to look decent.

  14. Stunning looks! I love the colours of the second one in particular. Great job as always!

  15. First, I LOVE Futuristic GlamRock! It's awesome, especially with Pixie Epoxy.

    Second Love potion works well with Chaotic Evil if you want more pink. It also works with Cupcake Sprinkles if you want lavender. I like it with Javan Rhino if you want Turquoise. It would probably work with Futuristic Glam Rock.

    I think it would work with Sugar Skulls and Darling Misfit, too.

  16. I LOVE the first one, I need to get that Futuristic Glam Rock color! I also feel the need to mention that your makeup skills have gotten noticeably better over the years from back when you used to randomly post a look every now and then :) (Im not saying you were bad before! Im saying you look SUPER PRO now!)Keep up the good work
