I promised Decorative Diva to do a look with Fyrinnae's Anemone which is a light sky blue with golden shimmer. I normally don't wear colours like Anemone because they make me look washed out. But heck, sometimes you gotta be brave and take the plunge.

Meow Cosmetics Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Himalayan
Facefront Cheek Up blush in Buenos Aires (I know I promised not to use FF anymore but this was the only blush that matched the overall look, sorry :( )
UDPP as a primer on lids
Fyrinnae eyeshadow in Anemone (upper and lower lid)
Coastal Scents gel liner in 24k (upper and lower lashline)
Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara in Black
Lancôme Color Fever gloss in Electro Flash Orange

The golden shimmer is very subtle but it's enough to save this colour from being boring. Actually, I couldn't wear this kind of shade without the gold because it would make me look anemic. The real challenge with this shade for me was to find a lippie that would give enough colour but not overpower Anemone. I have one orange lipgloss so I decided to put it in good use.

Electro Flash Orange may sound wild and it looks really orange in its container but it gives just a little bit of sparkly orange colour.

I really like Anemone but I'm not sure if I'm going to use it that much. I only picked up a sample so I have time to think about turning it to a longer relationship :)

I'm going out for a sushi lunch today so I think this is a great look for the occasion. It reminds me of Disney's Little Mermaid which was my favourite animation film when it came out because the heroine was a redhead. I actually had a Flounder plushie to complete my fantasies of being a mermaid. Yes, I have had issues even as a child....

So, what do you think about Anemone?

I think anemone is pretty, but WOW I like that lippy on you. That's a fab color for you, bright without being in your face.

Thanks :) I love this lippie, too. It's nice and glossy and there's some shimmer but not too much. I just don't use it that often because it's orange. I know it looks fab but I used to wear orange and copper lipsticks every day at one point.. But it's a great shade when I'm wearing nude makeup.
