Golden Yellow Glitter look using Aromaleigh

This look was inspired by Miss K's post. I've never done a total yellow look and figured I would give it a try. *shrugs*
I'm also trying to give my lashes a break from mascara due to the ton of Aromaleigh eye swatching I've been doing. It's causing lashes on my left eye to fall out faster so my lashes are shorter and more sparse on one eye. I can totally tell a difference between my eyes on close ups. Not a huge deal but it is kinda of annoying. So I got some Ardell wispies as they look more natural and are most similar to my real lashes when wearing mascara. I think they look OK. They were easy to apply and I hardly notice that I'm wearing anything.

This one is with flash, trying to capture the sparkles on the outside eye/temple area.

  1. I really like this look! Yellow eyeshadows are my fav "not normal" colour (I love golds but people are more likely to wear those and look totaly past yellow making yellow AWESOME-O) teeheee

    This look is extra badass with the dark brows and hair. aw.some. :)

  2. That's a really unusual and interesting look. I especially like the crease.

  3. wow you should really wear yellows more often, the colour suits you so well XD

  4. gasp!! Gorgeous, yellow reallllyyy suits you and the glitter is amazing

  5. That looks awesome!!! I love the high intensity shimmer and color of the yellow on your lid! Great job :)


  6. I love this :D It's like Beyonce in the Telephone video, but more sparklessss

  7. That color really brightens your face! It's unfortunate about your lashes btw, they're prettier than even the flasies~

  8. The gliteery yellow is just amazing! Love this look ( as usual ;) ).

  9. you are sooooo beautiful! and love your work.. :) you are inspiring :)

  10. Thank you ladies! I really expected to hate this because yellow is just one of those colours people don't like wearing much. But I do like it.
    Ha! Yeah, Beyonce's yellow look is similar. Didn't even think about that. :-)

  11. Wow that yellow is amazing! You look stunning.

  12. I really like this look! Yellow is one of those colors that I never think of using, but I may have to give it a shot one of these days.

  13. Wow this is AMAZING! The pigmentation is just out of this world, I love it. And the winged liner is perfect!

  14. Only one other person (FrescoPhyrra) has shown me that yellow can be used for good instead of're the second person to show me it CAN play nice on your face! LOL
    This is a gorgeous look & the yellow is startling but so beautiful. That intense color teamed with the exotic eyeliner is stunning. I wish I could do liner like that, too. Color me jealous!
    Thanks for sharing!

  15. I think the only color I have out of all those is unicorn. LOL....LOVE the yellow on you, but with the yellowness to my skin, it sort of washes me out. Doesn't stop me from WANTING to love it though! Love the glitteriness!

  16. The glitter is hot :D and the lashes look really natural!

  17. You've made Yellow shadow totally do-able here. Fab!
