Gold & Brown EOTD with Fyrinnae

I was browsing Fyrinnae's website last night, and was sorely tempted to place an order, but as I looked at some of the colors, I had this nagging feeling I already owned them. I looked in my drawers of eyeshadows that I haven't tested yet, and sure enough, there were several Fyrinnae eyeshadows in there! I pulled a few out and decided to create a look with them today.

I had the worst time getting photos today. I think our camera is reaching the end of its life. My husband and I agreed that as our Christmas present to ourselves, we'd get a good point-and-shoot, but he's "still researching." I'm hoping he decides on a new camera soon because I'm tired of taking blurry photos!

Anyway, I typically like to have some consistency in my photos - similar poses in different lighting, etc., but today, you're getting a hodge podge of whatever I took that was almost-sort-of-good-enough to post. 

These first two are taken using natural light:

The gorgeous wire-wrapped necklace was one of the first wire-wrapped designs by Alicia Stardust of Elements & Artifacts. I ended up commissioning her to create some garnet earrings to match the garnet necklace. I get complimented on the set all the time. Here are some close-ups. Again, not the best photos...but amazing artwork. You can see Alicia Stardust's original photos here, as well as read up on the various shinies that went into creating this lovely piece.


  1. hey, those earings are stunning! I am so digging gold right now so i really loved to see your gold eye example, i use a lot of urban decays gold shadows...just loving the gold right now thank you for doing it :-)

    1. Thanks, Pixie! I'm loving golds, too. I'll probably continue to wear a lot of them for a while!

  2. Lovely eye look, I need to use my Fyrinnae neutrals more too, they are so nice :)

    1. Thanks so much. Fyrinnae is phenomenal and I adore their neutrals!
