Here Comes the Sun FOTD

The sun is out again after doing a two day disappearing act. I thought for sure winter was coming back. It's happened here in Ohio, one day it will be warm enough for shorts then the next day we have a blizzard. Thankfully it was just the normal spring weather aka lots of rain. I thought I'd celebrate the suns return by doing a bright pink Aromaleigh look. I have three Aromaleigh pinks Strawberry Despair, Boiling Point and Raspberry Beret, I don't care much for Raspberry Beret but I don't want to trade it or give it away since I've used a lot of it. I feel like I'd be cheating some one. So instead when I do extreme looks on other people I use it on those whose skin tone is a little darker than mine. :D Last Halloween infact I used it on my guy friend Aaron who was the tooth fairy. He couldn't get the glitter off for a week. Hee hee.
Yesterday I placed my first Aromaleigh order in about two years. I know such a long time but I wasn't really digging their formula at first. When Fyrinnae came out with Pixie Epoxy I tried some of my Aromaleigh shadows with it and I fell in love again. It goes to show that you have to have the right base for you when it comes to eyeshadows. I can't wait for my shadows to come. *grins*

What I used:

Face + Eyebrows-
Hard Candy Concealer Palette
Fyrinnae Mineral Foundation in Opal ( Discontinued)
Nyx Blush in Pinky ( Applied on the apples of the cheeks and blended upwards to cheek bones.)
Jordana Eyeliner Pencil in Brown ( A soft taupe brown used to fill in bare spots on eyebrows.)

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Aromaleigh Gothic Lolita Eyeshadow in Strawberry Despair ( A strawberry pink with gold flecks applied on the lid and crease.)
Hi-Fi Millions on Peaches ( A peach with bright flecks of gold in it used to highlight the strawberry despair.)
Hi-Fi Let it Snow ( A sheer white duo chrome with purple, gold, and blue as a highlight color.)
Nyx Felt Tip Eyeliner Pen in Extreme Black
Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner pencil in Zero
Maybelline Colossal Last Mascara

Nyx Round Lipstick in Thailia

My Cat Freya and wee Chihuahua Abby have been playing in the sun shine all day. Abby was so frisky she dug up part of my moms garden. I swear she thinks she's a mole instead of a dog. Aw I love my critters. X3
Love, peace and little blonde dogs


  1. You haven't ordered from Aromaleigh in 2 YEARS? I can't even imagine the horror, lol. My cat thinks she's a doggy. She tries copying my dog all the time and will only eat dog food, it's hilarious. I really love your looks, they are always so pretty! I like how the orange is kind of subtle in this. I think pinks look good on you, both for eyes and blush. Very pretty :)

  2. I know! Two years! Actually it's more like one I looked at the last time I ordered and it was only one lol My dog thinks she's a cat sometimes she cleans herself by licking her little paw and than rubbing it on her nose. Hee hee I'd love to see orange on you, you look good in every color.

  3. LOL speaking of moles, my friend said that she got called a mole today because she knows all these weird routes through the buildings at uni! XD

    I've never ordered from Aromaleigh, I must be the only person who doesnt care for them :(

  4. This is a beautiful look, it did remind me of the sky at twilight, all pink clouds and sunsets :)
    And aww i love the fact that your cat and dog play together, one of my dogs just ignores the cat and the other desperately wants to play with them but they are frightened of him :(

  5. Silhouette- LOL moles are people too!!!!!! <3 I didn't like Aromaleigh much either but I figured hey why not try them again. *shrugs*

    Lillian- Thank you! My cat is very brave she just grabs on to which ever dog she wants and starts cleaning them. We have several small dogs so most won't stand up to her since she's the same size, maybe bigger than them.


Please leave a comment I'd love to hear from you.
