FOTD: Endangered Siren look with Meow Lost Rainforest

Today I wanted to try out some purplish colours from Meow's Lost Rainforest. Siren and Endangered caught my eye because I love how Sires is almost-purple, almost-rose with golden gleam and how Endangered just begs to be paired with it.

Endangered Siren

Meow Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Himalayan (two layers + wet as a concealer on blemishes)
Meow Crystalline Cat Glow powder in Quartz (as a highlighter on cheeks and below brows)
Glamour Doll Eyes blush in Doll Face (on cheeks)
Meow Primp and Preen Equilibrium powder (as a finishing powder)
Too Faced Shadow Insurance (as a primer on lids)
Meow Cosmetics Lost Rainforest eyeshadow in Siren (2/3 of lid)
Meow Cosmetics Lost Rainforest eyeshadow in Endangered (outer vee and crease)
Meow Cosmetics Lost Rainforest eyeshadow in Toucan (middle of the lid, blending into Siren and Endangered)
Meow Cosmetics Lost Rainforest eyeshadow in Waterfall (outer vee)
Fyrinnae eyeshadow in Meerkat (inner corner over Siren)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (as a liner on upper lashline)
Max Factor False Lash Effect Waterproof mascara in Black (upper lashes)
Lancôme Color Fever lip gloss in Funky Pink

When I started doing this look, I was supposed to do it only with Siren, Endangered and Waterfall. However, it looked too dark on me so I had to use Toucan and Meerkat to lighten it up.

I drew the line on my lash line a bit thicker on the outer corners. Then I went over with Waterfall and blended it upwards into Endangered. I finished by blending all the colours together by sweeping a brush over them gently from side to side.

This is the best shot of what I did with the liner and Waterfall. I really like the results and I usually don't wear blue eyeshadows. What's cool with Waterfall is that it has the same golden gleam as Siren.

I love how this look worked out, although at first I was sure it was going to be a disaster :D I took all of these photos before I went to work, which was something like 6.30am... I really TRIED to look like I'm awake. Ooh, my hair looks gorgeous. I have a secret weapon: brand spanking new ghd straighteners! Expensive. Yes. Worth every penny? Definitely.

Glamour Doll Eyes came up with blushes a while back and I went in blind and bought a full size of Doll Face blush. It's a fuchsia shade with a hint of blueish undertones. Looks absolutely scary in the jar but when applied softly, looks very stunning. I have to be careful, though, because it's quite pigmented. I once had too much on my brush and the results were.. well, alarming. I went over with my foundation brush, this time, to blend it in more.

Tomorrow I'm going to try to take pics of my much hyped Bromeliad+Torch+Mantis look, so stay tuned!

The blush really does look wild in the jar but when applied lightly, it gives a great glow.

It's nice to be blogging after a break! I wish I had more time to experiment with makeup. I have loads of stuff I haven't yet tried out but I'm afraid that in order to try them all out, I'd have to blog day and night for a year! lol
