Dancing with the Fairies & Alice.

I've been dropping hints about this post for the last few days, if you've been reading my past posts. The reason being, I was cleaning my brother's room and i found some old childhood books lodged behind the bookshelf and it completely took me back to being a kid. (I'm in a childish mood recently, been watching loads of old school disney and reading children's books

Anyways, When i was a little girl, i was enchanted with the notion of fairies. So much so, my mother bought be this beautiful book which has a collection of wonderful flower fairy pictures each with its own poem.

Today, is based on The sloe fairy, I've also included the poem that comes along with it.


The song of the Sloe Fairy
When Blackthorn blossoms leap to sight,
They deck the hedge with starry light,
In the early spring
When rough winds blow,
Each Promising
A purple sloe.

And now is Autumn here, and lo,
The Blackthorn bears the purple sloe
But ah, how much
Too sharp these plums,
Until the touch
Of Winter comes!

Annnd, here's the EOTD: (sorry about my awful skin, it was the day the paul and joe moisturiser broke me out. =/ and the awful eyebrows-I'm just very very lazy!)


The colours i used, Shu uemura palette & UD Alice palette
Lilac colour in Shu uemura
Absolem (UD) Green
Curioser (UD) light Purple
Underland (UD) Deep Purple
Silver liner in Shu uemura (did nothing, was not creamy enough)

Alice in Wonderland Movie!
I just saw this today (in 2d- 3d not available) and i absolutely loved it. Depp and Bonham Carter were fabulous as usual, as was alan rickman as the caterpillar. I Think the red queen is such a delightful character 'MY JABB-BABY-WOCKEYY' 'fat boys' I love her SO much. I know she's evil, but hey. =) I'm not going to give you any spoilers but lets just say, tim burton has not disappointed me. The scenery was gorgeous, the costumes, the imagination was all wonderful.

I definately recommend it!

Mary in Wonder said...

aaaah I've been waiting for this movie ever since the first trailers came out! But I don't want to watch it in 2d, but only one cinema plays it in 3d....and I dunno if I can manage to go there in time to catch the movie....arrgh
J Depp! ^.^ Luv ya? How can he wear heavy makeup so fucking well? *_*

Carine said...

I love fairies too, I have lots of fairy-related things in my room ^-^

Shop N' Chomp said...

Pretty EOTD! I wanted to see it this past weekend but it was rainy and yuck. =\ Hopefully I'll be able to catch it soon!

Imo said...

Lovely eyes! what do you think of the palette thus far? Its very sparkly I must say :l

Yin said...

@imo: I like the palette. but i kinda expected the shades to be different and more corresponding. like queen should have been a reddy colour and mad hatter a bright crazy orange. Maybe a bit more like the coastal scents palette colours.

@ningstar: yeah 3D is mostly available but my cinema doesnt offer it, i'm sure it will in most major city cinemas

@nic nic: im sorry for the spoilers. =( I know, i love how they did the watercolours.

@mary; i know even with crazy makeup i would so do johnny depp. haha. 2d is good. 3d makes my head hurt a bit, i rather enjoy my film than be hurting my way through it.

@carine: I still do, but when i was younger my mother totally decked me out in fairy tutus and wings ALLL the time. =) it was cute

thank you ladies for your comments. x

나니 said...

OMG U HAVE ZE URBAN DECAY PALETTE! *_* -raids Yinnie's makeup collection-

Btw, I tried out the purples in my new Sleek palette, and may I say that them colors are PIGMENTED AS FUCK<3 GOD I love it.. As soon as I get money here on the 1st (which is in a gazillion years) Imma go all crazy on makeup shopping. Btw, I watched the DVD u got me quite a few times already.. I LOVE IT<3

You rock girl!
Too bad we dun talk as much..
Oh, and the makeup look is nice :"D Unless it was intended for the colors to be rather vague, I suggest u try out the Milk jumbo pencil by NIX and put that under the shadows. It makes the colors pop :'D U can also use like a light green or lavender, depending on what color u want of course.. Ahh, I'm blabbering.. Anyways..
<3 uuu
