Shinkirou and Meerkat FOTD

Spring is finally here! Yesterday was the March equinox so we're finally getting some sunlight, yay! To celebrate spring, I did a look with gold and purple (or in this case pink-purple). Shinkirou is a golden nude (almost white) and Meerkat is this adorable pink-purple with golden shimmer. Both are from Fyrinnae which has become my favourite makeup brand. They have amazing colours for spring. Not that watered down stuff but REAL COLOUR.

Shinkirou and Meerkat FOTD

Meow Cosmetics Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Himalayan
Lime Crime blush in Marie Antoinette
Fyrinnae eyeshadow in Shinkirou (inner half of upper lid)
Fyrinnae eyeshadow in Meerkat (outer half of upper lid)
MAC Fluidline liner in Blacktrack (upper lash line)
Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara in Black
MAC Dazzlegloss in Dazzlepuss

I think Shinkirou and Meerkat go great together as they both have that golden shimmer. Meerkat is a lovely colour. It's fun, vibrant but very usable. It's almost the same shade as Darling Misfit from Fyrinnae.

I struggled to get a picture at all. It's very bright outside and I had to take photos at our balcony and the sun came from the most inconvenient angle for me. But I thought this pic was the prettiest of the bunch :) What you CAN see is that Meerkat really brings out my eyecolour.

Dazzlepuss lipgloss is from MAC's Hello Kitty Kouture line. It isn't sold in Finland nor will it be, which is a bummer. I have never used dazzlegloss before and it's sticky. Very glittery but sticky. I think I like lipglasses a bit better.

Spring, here we come!

You look lovely!
I like the color placement too, I don't often try that way enough.
It looks awesome with your hair.

Thanks, sweetie :) I know, I don't do my makeup much this way either but these colours I think it really worked. It was fresh and simple.

I love how my hair looks in this photo, it's like flames :)

Oh My God! Ok, so I've been nagging about Fyrinnae 'cause it's not mineral make up.. But after seeing that look, I think I have to place an order.. :D

Saila, you look amazing!!!

Thanks, darling :) I haven't had any problems with Fyrinnae not being 100%mineral. I've had no itching or anything and my skin is supersensitive, as you know.

Go ahead and order! The shipping costs are really low and if you spend $20 or more, shipping is free (how cool is that?). Let me know what you ended up getting!
