The Portals LOTD using Shiro Cosmetics

I wanted to do a look from the new Science Collection from Shiro Cosmetics using blue and orange since those are the colors of the two portals in the game the collection is inspired by. "Thinking With Portals" is orange with blue sparkles and "A Neat Gun" is blue with orange sparkles, so I'm thinking these two colors were meant to represent the two portals. This is what I came up with.
Check out that hair. That's what it looks like when I do nothing to it. Not as scary as it was before I cut it, but still pretty bad. haha

-Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy (just on the lid)
-Shiro Cosmetics "Emancipation Grid" all over crease and blended up
-Shiro Cosmetics "A Neat Gun" directly in crease and blended into Emancipation Grid
-Persephone Minerals "Ami" (just a touch) in the outer crease to darken it more
-Shiro Cosmetics "Thinking With Portals" all over main lid
-Shiro Cosmetics "I Feel Fantastic" inner corners
-Kat Von D eyeliner pen in "Trooper" (black)
-Stila eyeliner in "Blue Ribbon" on lower lashline
-Rimmel white eyeliner on waterline
-Maybelline Lash Stiletto black mascara

-Morgana Cryptoria "Roses and Violets"

Blue and orange is not a color combination I would normally think to use, but I actually think it looks pretty good. It's very "wearable," by my standards anyway. A Neat Gun is such a pretty blue, I can see myself using this color a lot. Let me know what you think!

Have a lovely evening!


  1. Even though it's not the most obvious combination, I really like it! You need to show us a better pic of your new hair! It doesn't look scary at all, you know how many people with straight hair spend 2 hours trying to make their hair look like that? :D

  2.  Whoa I love this combination! :D adding these two to my wishlist!

  3.  This is ace! I love that collection, I had to show my bf all the names as well haha.

  4. Thinking With Portals is such a gorgeous orange! I think you pull off just about every colour combination possible with such ease!

  5. Cute! I really like the colour combo - gotta be done, right? I love that the blue has orange sparkles and the orange has blue sparkles!

  6.  You made blue and orange actually look nice together! :D totes want to steal this look 

  7. Go for it! I was iffy about it while I was doing it, but I do think they look good together! :) 

  8. Me too! I knew I had to do a blue and orange look as soon as these came in haha 

  9. Aww well thank you, ma'am :) 

  10. Don't worry, I will! The red and purple highlights are a lot more subtle than I wanted originally, but it does look different in terms of length. I'll probably have some better ones next time, I just didn't want to show it all frizzy haha

  11. I love blue and orange together :)  It's so pretty!

  12. I absolutely adore this! The blue in the crease REALLY makes the orange pop, and what a fantastic orange it is! I agree with you, even though it is a bold colour combination, it looks very wearable!

  13. I love Thinking with Portals & A Neat Gun is awesome!

  14. I love this combination, I think orange and blue go together quite well!
