I did a simple look today to see how things would look with my new hair. I used the Darling  Girl color Surfrider on my lid and crease. In retrospect, I think it’s too yellow to use on my eyes like that, because it ended up making them look tired. It’s a pretty color, but doesn’t work well on me like that. Also, with my hair being vibrant and red, my eyes seem to get lost without more eyeliner. I think I need more eyeliner along my lower lash line, to emphasize underneath as opposed to my upper lash line. I felt like my eyes looked all but hidden.

I started with TFSI. Then I put Surfrider on the lid and crease with a fluffy brush. Next I put Fairylite on top of Surfrider on the lid, crease and browbone. I lined my eyes with Blacktrack, and used Midnight Cowboy for the inner lower lash line. I defined my brows with Love+ (such a gorgeous bright red!!!).

And here’s a picture of my hair out in direct sunlight.

      Wow, that red in the brows looks amazing with your new haircolor! I also like the outdoors pic; it’s incredible how the sunlight catches those subtle streaks of pink showing through the red.

        Thanks Lizzy!

      Love your hair and I love that you matched your brows to your hair!!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Christina!

    • MlleK

      The color you put on your brows make them match perfectly with your hair color! Bravo!
      You should do a cold colored eye make up to contrast with them :)

      • Phyrra

        Do you mean white – ice blue – dark navy blue? Good idea :)

      I always love funky hair in direct sunlight, makes the colors soooo much more vibrant. Heck for that matter, it makes my eyeshadow more vibrant as well. Okay fine, let’s just say I LOVE the sunshine LOL

      • Phyrra

        Hehe! I love seeing them in direct sunlight too.

    • Vannesa

      Have you tried Sundara Cosmetics? They are this new company I found on etsy and they have the most brightest colors I ever seen! They have this color called Bindi Red thats super bright and and intense! Just thought I let you know because you love Sugarpill’s Love+ and I find Bindi to be more of a true red then Love+. Here is the link if you want to check them out!


      • Phyrra

        I ordered samples from them and will be doing a review of the colors once I’ve tried them out!

    • Kathy R.

      I love surfrider and I checked the website. I don’t see it anywhere-do you know if it is dc’d? You look great!!! Love the color of your hair!!!!

    • Sara

      Jeebus, that color is killing me! I love your brows!! You know how I love matching brows to hair no matter what crazy color it is; such a huge pain in the ass, though, I can see why more people don’t do it. since mine has faded I mix several eyeshadows to try and get it to look “right.”

      Anyway, now you’re making me want to check out Love+. Soo bright!

      • Phyrra

        I tend to like to match or go darker :)

      My goodness woman, is there a hair color you can’t pull off fabulously??? The eyebrows are looking pretty awesome too <3

      • Phyrra

        Aww thank you Erline <3

      I really like your makeup – it balances quite nicely with your hair. Vibrant and/or unnatural hair color can mean your face gets lost, but the intense blush and lippie really do work well.

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Cin :)

    • http://mu-tokki.com Soo

      I really like the colored brows to match your hair!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Soo :)

      I love your new hair colour and your bat barrette is adorable!


      • Phyrra

        Thanks Deery!

    • DaenaCat

      Your hair looks fabulous. Makes me want to dye mine pink again, even though I just spent days bleaching mine back to white-blonde. (Was previously blood red and then blue before that.)

      • Phyrra

        Oooh sounds awesome!

    • http://roxcat.net/blog/ roxcat

      Beautiful, I love how the brows and lips match with your hair!

      love the brows!

      • Phyrra

        Thank you Holly Jane :)

    • Lucy

      Your haircut is fantastic looking. Love the color also. You look so chic! I think you can handle a lot of black eye liner. If I was much younger I would love to be wearing the same shade of hair and cut.

      • Phyrra

        Aww thanks!

    • Vannesa

      I can’t wait! bindi is the only color I got from them so I would love to see the other colors you got!
