Teal, Brown and Gold Eye Makeup Look + Picture Tutorial

Last night my kitty Athan, was a little aggressive with snuggly time before bed. He has this thing where he really likes kneading dough on my hair and rolling in it/rubbing his face on it. So with laying on my back with all my hair pulled up above my head (was already in bed, lights out), Athan was practically on my head rubbing his head on mine while kneading dough on my hair. I guess he got a little carried away as he started to hurt me (felt like my hair was being ripped out!) and I was squeeling for him to get off and finally tried to push him away from my head and in trying to keep his balance (and hold of my head) his hind paw scratched my outer left eyebrow (you can see it a little in the close up pictures for the tutorial). It's not terrible but since this happened in the dark, we were both startled and initially it did hurt a lot. Come on! Eye areas a sensitive! My outer eyebrow is now sore and a little bruised. But I survived. Love hurts sometimes. :-)

This look was created mainly using  Morgana Cryptoria eyeshadows and lipstick.

Fiery Sunset Eye Makeup Look + Picture Tutorial

Yellow is definitely a colour I don't reach for very often. But I had an itch to do some sort of sunset inspired look. So here you go.

This look was created using Fyrinnae shadows.

My husband did not like this look. He literally said I looked like a clown. WTF?!


 The best metallic red lipstick ever!

 Since I don't normally post pictures of me smiling...
