Cerulean Switch

I wanted to give OCC’s Nori a spin today. I grabbed Switch because I knew that with Switch, no matter what, I’d end up with a pretty look. I ended up blending the two colors together a lot, so there’s a lot of green because of that, but I think the overall effect is cool. A friend of miine told me I reminded her of a dragon.


By the way, I’m really happy I did end up buying If It’s Pink. I decided to wear that instead of a lipstick, which I’ve been favoring wearing a lot recently, because I wanted the effect of gloss on my lips. I think it looked gorgeous without being overpowering.

      I love this look. It does remind me of a dragon, in all the best ways.

      • Phyrra

        Thank you! I’m really happy with how it turned out, with the aqua/blue iridescence throughout all of the look.

      I’ve said it a million times before, but I LOVE you in hot pinks. You look absolutely amazing, and surprisingly natural <3

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Dominique :) I think, for whatever reason, it just brightens my skin up. Dave says that, at least.

    • Invicta

      I agree, the gloss looks beautiful! It has the perfect amount of color to keep the eyes as the center of attention & I think it made your lips look fuller. The green/blue/green/blue from the crease down to the lower lash line brings a swirl pattern to mind. Kind of like a lemon-lime/blue raspberry Slurpee :-P

      This is darn perfection! What a pretty mix and yup, the lippie is lovely on you. I like how you angle your face, it suits your bone structure in the photos.

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Tianne! Sometimes I can catch the right angle, other times, I fail :) Glad you like it!

    • Saila

      Yep, it’s the most gorgeous dragon look ever! And as the other girls said, pink lipgloss is your friend!

      • Phyrra

        Aww thank you Saila! I’m loving the greens, and you know of my love affair with pink.

      This is such a beautiful colour combination, I can definitely see where your friend was coming from with the dragon comparison – a very sparkly, fairy-tale dragon obviously.

    • http://girlygeektochic.blogspot.com/ Kate

      Such a gorgeous look! Those colours compliment each other so nicely…I agree it does look like a dragon or fairy wings :-)

      I love the pink in your hair!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Kate! I think the colors definitely work well together.

      This is GORGEOUS! Ahhhh I freaking love it! I just love how everything is put together, so it’s like Switch and Nori are both outer v’s and creases. Beautiful. <3

        Thank you Heather :)

    • Stiletto

      Gotta agree with your friend, definitely reminds me of dragons! It’s AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS!!!
