Classic look with Aromaleigh

After the slightly disastrous eye popping experiment (teehee), I decided to do a more classic look with other stuff I got from Aromaleigh. I know I'm not a classic beauty (I'm sure I don't even fit the category of any beauty, I'm just me) but sometimes it's nice to do more simple looks. And if you have the right colours simple won't mean boring.

I had ordered three eyeshadows from Aromaleigh, two of which were from their Eye Plush Collection. Those shades are non-shimmery, non-sparkly colours made for everyday use. The colours are also very soft.

Persian Kitten: Smooth. plush finish tan with soft pearl finish
Petit Fours: A plush finish rose petal pink with soft taupey lilac undertones

Well, I did want to use a more shimmery colour with these two. I had ordered a shade from the Elemental Lustre Collection. Elemental Lustres are more vibrant and shimmery colours.

Wonder: Intensively rich silver-based heathered ruby

Wow, this colour is AMAZING. It reflects light beautifully, yet it's not an "in your face" discoball glitter shadow.

Classic look with Aromaleigh

Meow Cosmetics Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Himalayan
Meow Cosmetics concealer in Inquisitive Himalayan
Meow Cosmetics Top Cat finishing powder
Meow Cosmetics blush in Tickled Pink
Aromaleigh Eye Plush Eyeshadow in Petit Fours (all over eyelid)
Aromaleigh Elemental Lustre Eyeshadow in Wonder (outer vee and crease)
Aromaleigh Eye Plush Eyeshadow in Persian Kitten (as a highlighter)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (upper lash line)
Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara in Black
Makeup Store lipstick in Sweetheart

As you can see, the finish from the eyeshadows is very soft. What you don't see is the wonderful shimmer of Wonder. It actually complemets the not so shimmery Petit Fours perfectly.

Yeah, I had my hair cut. I need to get used to it, now it feels too short and boyish. The bangs look horrible in these pics, I couldn't iron them straight enough.

I love how the blush looks on my skin. Tickled Pink is a very cool pink so I can't wear with everything. Here I think it looks nice.

I know you can't see the eyeshadows here but I think the shades really brightened up my eyes, unlike the POP kit. What do you think about the lippie?

I would recommend you to check out Aromaleigh's Eye Plush and Elemental Lustre collections, they are fab! The plushes are very soft and go on smoothly. As it says on AL's website, these are the kind of colours that can be used everyday for the more effortless look.
I'm still waiting for me order from Fyrinnae but go check out Decorative Diva's blog for swatches and gorgeous looks!
