Mephisto FOTD

Hi all,

I'm trying to give my pigments some love and decided to start with Fyrinnae Mephisto. I think I'm in love! It looks purple in the pot but over Pixie Epoxy it morphs into an almost coppery burgundy colour. So gorgeous!

Face:
-Usual primer, foundation, concealers, powders and contour product

-MAC Snowglobe Beauty powder.
Eyes:
-UDPP
-Milani ShadowEyez in Almond Cream
-Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
-Fyrinnae Mephisto (inner half of lid)
-UD Evidence (outer half of lid)
-Catrice Starlight Espresso (crease. Twice in one week. Guess who's having a reignited love affair?)
-Suds and Sass Coma White (brow bone and inner corner)
-Sleek Eau La La liner in Noir
-HIP Cream liner in Black
-Guerlain Maxi Lash mascara and
-Boots Natural Collection Water Guard mascara.

I also made the mistake of rushing straightening my hair and have a nasty burn on my left cheek bone. Oh joy.
