Death Note Collection by Shiro Cosmetics!

I apologize for the larger photos... but blogger would not upload these for some reason.. kept giving me internal errors.

Yay! My Shiro Cosmetics order came in :) And as you can tell... I'm super duper excited in my video. The colors are absolutely gorgeous, and everytime I look at them I keep kicking myself for not knowing about this brand sooner!

I mentioned in the video about how I can be a very big prude when it comes to buying eyeshadows online, mostly because I can never truly know what they look like in my eyes until I see them swatched on MY skin. So having the option for samples like Shiro Cosmetics has is an amazing quality, especially since they are only $1. This way, I can choose my favorites depending on how well they wear and how vibrant they are on my eyes. So far I've picked out three I will be ordering full sizes of from this collection and I'm still working on the Super Effective collection!

Absolutely amazing, keep up the great work Caitlin!

My Rendition of Zipper Face

I saw this awesome video awhile ago while searching through latex videos and found this:

Needless to say... I knew exactly what I was being for Halloween this year, but sadly... I work on Halloween... so I decided to dress up for my friend's costume/birthday party!

Totally digging my hawk btw.

Basically... what I did was I painted a zipper with liquid latex that was close to my skin color, I used some Ben Nye Liquid Latex and some Halloween store junk... which btw if you're going to do this... try to use the Ben Nye stuff, or any better latex, the Halloween store stuff was very thin and hard to use. Then I let the latex sit, and then did my hair, I just used Big Sexy Hair hairspray and teased up the middle then pinned the sides up and teased those as well so they would stick up like a mohawk. I didn't do the back part though, I just kind of let it lay down to make kind of a Native American Mohawk type hawk since the bottom part of my hair is VERY long compared to the top part of my head.

Then I applied the latex zipper from my forehead, to my chest with Spirit Gum, then I applied my regular foundation all over the zipped and latex with some concealer too on darker parts of the latex. I then shaded in my nose with MAC Carbon and near where shadows would be for my face. Then I applied Carbon to my eyes, well.. around my eyes, then I applied some purple shadow from my 88 palette onto my dark circles to enhance them and make me look tired and icky. I also applied those colors to the zipper and some parts of the latex and under my lips and such. Just played around with the colors a lot to make it look dark and icky. I then used Ben Nye blood and spread it pretty much anywhere I could think of.

I also spread the blood onto my shirt, because I'm supposed to be zipped all the way down. Loved this and I'm looking forward to doing more :3

Drag Night!

Went out to Drag Night with some friends, let me tell you... gay men know how to party @_@ A lot harder than I ever have... haha, by the end of it I felt like mush and was all sweaty and gross and of course they all looked amazing! So anyways, in honor of bright makeup and fun times, I ended up doing this look: which I took the idea from my plugs which on one side are a gold/blue and the other is a teal/copper with a orange/red gradient lip look using Shiro cosmetics.

See the plugs?! Aren't they just divine? :3

Anyways, so basically what I used on the lid was I primed with Urban Decay Primer Potion, then I used Half Baked (Urban Decay) on the lid and in the crease, then I cut the crease with Carbon (MAC) and shaded it up into the brow bone. Then I applied Electric Eel (MAC) to the spot where the shading met the brow bone, and then used Deep Truth (MAC) underneath, and then a teal color from my 88 CS Prisim Palette. Blendblendblend, and then Gesso (MAC) right under my brow bone with some NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk under the Gesso. Then I used Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy over Half Baked, and applied MAC Reflects Antique Gold Glitter, and Reflects Transparent Gold over that. Under the eye I used the same shadows I used for the top of the brow bone and in the eye duct I used some random highlight gold color from the 88 palette. THENNNNNNN, I made my cheeks up with Dollymix and the 10pan Blush Palette from CS and used Lightscapade (MAC) to highlight my cheekbones.

For the lips I used NYX's Plush Red Lip Liner all around my lips and went just above my line to give the appearance that my top lip is fuller than it really is. Then I applied NYX's round lipstick in Red to the side and Morange by MAC in the middle. I blended that together then applied Charmander by Shiro Cosmetics to the center and blended that out with a shader brush, then I applied a tiny bit of Pikachu by Shiro Cosmetics to the exact middle.

SIMPLE! I had a lot of fun with this and I'm hoping I get a chance to do something like this again sooooooon, I work far too much :/

Holy Fyrinnae Batman!

Did some major haulage over the past few days, at one of my favorite sites to buy from:, and I have more from the Halloween collection on the way.

Now, if you don't know much about Fyrinnae you should know that they're notorious for their website being down and slow processing times, which is fine because the colors are so amazing, and their staff is very small for the amount of orders they put through.

On to the pretties!

Just... looooook!! My favorites are Sugar Skulls, Darling Misfit, Pyromanic Erotica, Electro-Koi, and Anemone (rest it's soul... it was so gorgeous). The only other sad thing about these colors are most are limited edition... which makes me a sad panda... because I wish I had bought more Anemone before it got discontinued. I haven't seen it on the site since I got it :/

I officially need to stop being so lazy...

I've been getting back into makeup like crazy... it really seems video games can just eat away at my soul. So I've quit WoW for good, have gotten back into eating healthy and looking better :) I will be trying out this blog thing once again!
