the weekend face | mother of dragons

Hello, all!

Long time, no post. I'm still working out my post schedule, so things should be more consistent within the next couple of weeks.

Today, though, I wanted to share what's on my face.

I've been in love with the NARS Pure Radiant tinted moisturizer and Radiant Creamy concealer for quite some time now. Together, they make quite the pair, leaving my skin appropriately radiant without looking greasy. The Bourjois Blush Exclusif adds a little pink flush to my cheeks, and the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder set it all in place.

On my lips, I'm wearing the Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Rose, but that's not the most exciting part of this look.

No, the most exciting thing I'm wearing today is a sample I ordered from Shiro a while back: the eyeshadow in Mother of Dragons from the Seven Kingdoms Collection. Now, I'm not the biggest fan of loose eyeshadow: it's a faff to apply, and in my experience it doesn't last the longest.

This color, though…

I was inclined to like it due to its name and inspiration, but the color is unlike anything I would've anticipated. Silvery purple in a red base, it applies inexplicably and develops this extraordinary shade. Even over NARS primer, it doesn't last super long when applied dry, but I can deal with that for such a unique color. With a couple of coats of L'Oréal Miss Manga mascara, I now have a simple eye that packs a punch.


  1. I have never heard of that Shiro site. But I love it! That is so awesome! Love it!

  2. Yay! It's pretty fun to see all the fandom-inspired makeup. :)
