concerning the makeup i wore one day
so, here’s my first shot at a makeup oriented post, beyond the one wherein i talked about talking about makeup some.
last Saturday i put together a look that i ended up loving quite a bit. i have all these samples from Aromaleigh that I’ve been working my way through, only I hadn’t had a chance to test out “Prim Tweed” yet, so I gave that a shot.
<—————-The pictures kinda suck. Sorry. But at least you kinda get the idea.————–>
Anyway, I started out with Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance, which I swear by. I don’t put anything on without this base, for reals.
I’ve tried Urban Decay’s Primer Potion, but I had problems with blending with it. None of those problems with the Shadow Insurance. Love it.
I applied Prim Tweed to my brow bone. It’s a real subtle color, very soft and lovely and neutral, with just a hint of shimmer to it. I’m going to have to pick up a full sized jar of this as soon as I can; not that the sample isn’t going to last me several more applications.
In my crease I used Morbid Curiosity, another sample from Aromaleigh; it’s from the Gothic Lolita collection, and I heart this color too. See above regarding picking up a full sized jar posty hastey. It’s dramatic and sparkly but not glittery, if that makes sense.
So that’s what I wore. Oh! Wait, I actually put on mascara, which is a new occurrence for me. I’ve got a tube of Lash Blast Luxe… who’s that by again? And I wore my current favorite gloss, which is from the Boots No. 7 line at Target. Love it. Love it enough that I bought a couple more tubes for future use. Also, the shadows lasted all day. I dunno if this is the shadow itself being awesome, or because of the primer, but either way: yay!
Thus far, Aromaleigh is getting a big thumbs up from me. I’m going to put together something on the “buy this look” that I bought as well, if I can manage to get decent pictures of myself in it.
