Last Friday my brother and my fiance came to visit me in Kent. They came baring a package from Aromaleigh. I was excited since I hadn't ordered anything but I had been eyeing Miss K's new Astronomical collection. I ripped open the package to find samples of the new collection and samples of Ciao Italia which I already owned at one point. I did get these for free but that does not impact my decision making while reviewing/using the product. I want to do swatches but after the failed swatches I did the other day I realized my camera is to shitty to take decent swatch pictures. Grey has some amazing swatches on her blog if you'd like to check them out.
I really like this collection because it reminds me of Stargate Sg-1. When I saw Event Horizon I was like "OMG HAVE TO USE ASDFUIYFASDUYfsds." I am a huge Stargate geek. Mmm Daniel... *drools* Er... where was I?
What I used:
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Aromaleigh e/s in Event Horizon (A soft aqua color used on the lid with a flat shader brush.)
Aromaleigh e/s in Escape Velocity (A Navy blue used on the crease.)
Aromaleigh e/s in Big Bang ( A dark blue based purple used on the inner crease to deepen the look.)
Aromaleigh e/s in Milky Way (A dupe for Rosina used as a highlighting shade.)
Milani eyeliner in black
NYC Liquid eyeliner in black
Fyrinnae lip Luster in Puppy Love
So I realized lately a lot of my looks have been the monochromatic light colors with the darker versions of said color in the crease. I really need some inspiration and I was wondering if you guys would leave me some suggestions or links to images that inspire you! I'm running low on inspiration because of seasonal sadness. Thank you!
P.S. In gossipy news Julia and Roman made it official thanks to all your comments. He asked her out and now they're boyfriend and girlfriend! I'm so happy! I've been seeing this happen for nearly two months. (It's been driving me crazy. I was like JESUS THE SEXUAL TENSION! JUST KISS ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!)
