Meow St. Patty's Day Swatches, Looks

I just wanted to share this rather pic heavy post showing the swatches and looks I did using (most of) the Meow St. Patty's Day Collection.  I swatched over Urban Decay Primer Potion on my arm; the top row is patted dry and the bottom row is foiled w/water.

L-R: gaelic, leprechaun, shamrock, get lucky, celtic, blarney stone, sun disc, or, lunulae

Rainbow's End Collection L-R: sun disc, or, lunulae

L-R: gaelic, leprechaun, shamrock, get lucky, celtic, blarney stone

get lucky, celtic, blarney stone

gaelic, leprechaun, shamrock

Using the "beauty" setting on my camera :P  This is get lucky on inner half of lid, shamrock on outer half, blarney stone in crease and lower lashline (over UD 24/7 shadow pencil in Mercury) Panache Blush in Pizazz, Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Very Berry Happy

lunulae on lid, celtic in upper crease, gaelic in lower crease and outer lower lashline & or on inner lower lashline (over UD covet), leprechaun wetlined on upper lashline... whew. Hope that wasn't too confusing! 

taken w/flash
The second look shown here was done yesterday and there wasn't much sunlight out for picture time. 
I am loving the shades blarney stone, lunulae, celtic and gaelic. I'm thinking many of these, Shamrock in particular would prob look better over Pixie Epoxy, I shall try that at some time.  This collection is available on Meow's website till April 1st.

St. Patrick's Day FOTD & a Bathtub Cat Picture

Hey everyone!  I hope you all had an awesome St. Patty's Day weekend!  Mine was good... I went to our local AOH with the family on Saturday to celebrate.  They do the whole corned beef and cabbage dinner thing (which I passed on, yuck) every year.  It was crazy!  It hasn't been that crowded in years, I suppose because it fell on a Saturday this year.  It was cool to get all dressed up in green, see a bunch of friends I haven't talked to in awhile, drink, sing and party with everyone. Good times! :D
This was the look I did.  I was pretty happy with how it came out! I was not as happy with how my pics came out however, lol.

Stuff I used:


~Sugarpill Tako on lid
~Sugarpill Midori in crease
~Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy all over Tako and Midori
~Fyrinnae Electric Stardust over Midori
~Fyrinnae Polar Bear over Tako
~Another layer of Pixie Epoxy and Electric Stardust/Polar Bear
~Sugarpill Tako under brows
~UD 24/7 pencil in Covet on waterline
~Sugarpill Midori over Covet
~Fyrinnae Polar Bear under Covet on lower lashline/tearduct area
~Meow Feliner in Cat Burglar wetlined on upper lashline
~Buxom mascara
~Too Faced Brownies in Blondey


~Prescriptives All Skins Liquid Makeup in Level 1 Warm Light
~Prescriptives All Skins Powder in Level 1 mixed with a little Aromaleigh Glamoured Finishing Power in Triteleia
~Meow Sugarplums blush in Ballerina


~Venomous Cosmetics Lip Poison in Trouble
~Urban Decay Lip Junkie in Wallflower
At first I used the Lip Poison, but thought it was a bit too bright-ish for this look so when it faded I used UD Wallflower instead. :)

And here I give you a picture of my cat Isabelle hangin' out in the bathtub/shower curtains:


I hope everyone has a lovely week! <3

A Couple Random EOTD's

Hello!  I'm back!  Ya know after my team lost the Super Bowl I had to hide out in my cave for about a month and cry myself to sleep every night (not really).
But for realz I just have not been wearing makeup much at all lately.  Sad times.  Anywayz I have a couple EOTD's from back in January that I never posted, so here they are!

Here I am wearing Persephone Minerals Vixxen from the holiday collection.  This one was super duper difficult to photograph!  It has a really awesome pinkish-lavenderish sheen that I tried to capture on camera using different lighting, angles etc.  This was the best I could do :/  I used Silent Night (from same collection) to wetline, and I fail to remember what else.  Sorry.

For this one I used Rhea from the Aromaleigh Mythos collection.  I am very fond of this shade.  If I were you I'd go get one now on sale for $3.  It has a nice glossiness to it when foiled lightly.  Pretty. And I also figured out a little trick for this look!  I've been really wanting Urban Decay's new 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Demolition...I've been waiting FOREVAH for them to come out with a non-glittery dark brown pencil liner.  Since I am broke as hell I figured instead of spending $19 (WTF is up with the price increase UD?! I know it's only a buck more but still..) on a new pencil, I'd use Zero and then Whiskey over that and Ta-dah!!! Dark brown liner.  Aren't I the clever one ;P  Once I run out of those two I'll probably cave and go buy Demolition. But that will take awhile.

I hope everyone is ready to get their Green on tomorrow!  I know I am, been wearing it all week!  HAPPY SAINT PADDY'S!!!! XD
