Wood Nymph

Sunday I went for a look with a wood nymph feel. I took Sugarpill’s Midori and used it on the lid and crease. I then darkened the crease and outer corner of the lid with Fyrinnae Kuroneko. This color blends so easily and looks so amazing on, I almost didn’t layer it. I ended up layering it with Silk Naturals Scout to create that earthy, woodsy tone. I added a dot of Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy to the center of each lid, and then applied Fyrinnae Leopard-Print Galaxy on top of it. If I had it to do again, I’d probably have skipped the Pixie Epoxy because it made it more intense than I wanted, and less the ethereal hint I was going for. However, I still think it looks gorgeous. I used MAC Fairylite on the browbone and MAC Vanilla for the inner corner of the eye. MUFE’s Liquid liner in 13 Matte black was perfect to line the upper lash line. I used UD’s 24/7 liner in Midnight Cowboy on the lower water line. I applied NARS Via Veneto right at the base of the lower lashes. I smudged Midori along the lower lid/lower lash line.

      Wow, you look amazing! I always hate when people ask me if I’ve lost weight (because I haven’t, haha) but your face looks a lot thinner. I don’t know how you do it but you manage to look better and better over time!

      • Phyrra

        Aww thank you Jessi! I attribute it to all the blueberries I’ve been eating :)

      I really like how you layered it with Leopard Print Galaxy! I never think to go over colours with another. I like! :)

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Mindy! I think the Arcanes are great for layering :)

      So beautiful. I love how you wear greens, they just look so nice on you. I hardly ever wear green because it’s not quite as flattering for me so I am always jealous of those who can wear them. :-)

      • Phyrra

        Thank you Mandy! Have you tried olive greens by chance?

    • http://www.ethereal--beauty.blogspot.com Sophie

      I really like the subtle violet on the brow with the greens… the colours go well and gives this kind of earthy/calm feeling to the look. I think Wood Nymph is def a success :D Looks fab!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Sophie! I really had fun putting this together.

      Wonderful, after watching this look I think I’ll be using green today. Also I died my hair yesterday with SFX Sonic Green! It came out like an emerald green! (at least under my home light…lets see under the sun)

      • Phyrra

        Oh I bet it’s gorgeous!

    • Patricia

      You look stunning. I love green and its mysterious effect. You have combined the colors perfectly. I can’t wait to try your advice.

      Wow, this whole look is amazing! You make a great wood nymph! I keep thinking about getting Midori, but haven’t yet. It might need to happen.

      I absolutely adore when you do green looks. BTW, out of curiosity, what color are your eyes? Sometimes they look green to me and others, blue.

      • Phyrra

        They’re blue-green. Depending on what I wear, they’ll pull more blue or more green. Sometimes they’ll look grey.

      The greens are beautiful, of course, but my favourite part is that purply shimmer on the inner crease!
