Travel Makeup Bag Essentials: Business Trip to Wine Country

omorrow, I am heading to our senior leadership retreat in Kelowna, the wine country of BC. It will be hot which means no business suits required! Today’s post is a roundup of the makeup I am packing for my trip.

I most frequently see frenzy around Nabla’s eyeshadow palettes (their Dreamy eyeshadow palette sold out before I could make up my mind on it – too late!) and their single eyeshadow, Alchemy. I decided to order Alchemy and a few other single eyeshadows. My order shipped out via FedEx the next day – it…

Swatching some Fyrinnae Pigments

Swatching some Fyrinnae Pigments

Today was a tough day – which means that the best way to soothe myself after work was to play with some duochrome pigments. Today I dipped into my vast collection of Fyrinnae pigments and decide to swatch a few for my (and your) viewing pleasure. The below is a small sample of my mini pigments collection from Fyrinnae Cosmetics. Fyrinnae (www.fyrinnae.com) makes some magical pigments – most of my collection consists of pigments from their duochrome and multichrome Arcane…
