Soft Purple and Blue look using Victoria's Revenge by Aromaleigh

While I really do like this look, there are a few annoying things I did that I'm not too happy about. I filled in my eyebrows a bit more than usual and they look really intense to me. But I'm sure I'm the only one that notices. I also used too much highlighter under my brow and it looks too frosty. The pics with flash made it look really bad so you just get natural lighting pics today. Another thing is I over blended one eye. So you can tell one eye is darker than the other. None of these things are particularly horrible and don't really ruin the look. Like I said, it's annoying but these things happen. We all have something like this from time to time so I'm just not worried about. The learning process never stops in my opinion, and we always learn different ways of doing things to get the right look. I just need to go back to using a matte fleshy colour shadow for my brow bone and use less Pixie Epoxy in that area. :-)
I can say I'm getting much better at applying my fake lashes too. Took me a few seconds today, no issues and I can't even feel them. Woot!

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy (applied all around the eye, rubbing in gently with ring finger)

Before anyone asks, yes, I made the jewelry. :-)


  1. Lovely look. OMG the necklace is stunning.

  2. I adore those earrings, my ears are stretched though -_- Other than that, a beautiful look! You and Phyrra are making me crave Aromaleigh.

  3. Those are really nice shades together! I had a total brainfart today on my makeups decisions so I only wore turquoise liner :( Tomorrow is inventory day and last year I wore hardcore black and red shadow so the sales peeps would stay away from me, looking all scary and stuff, I don't know what I'll do for tomorrow's "stay away from me" idea.

  4. I really like this look. I've been pointing out your blog to Mineral Make-up Newbies so they can look at your looks & your swatches.

    Did you make your earrings & necklace? I love them! I want a set!

    I received VR from Miss K too, but can't get good swatch pictures. May I reference your swatch pictures in my blog post about them and include links back to your blog?

  6. Ohhh man!! Love this so much

  7. Love the combo, so well blended, just awesome, love it :)

  8. WOW... such a pretty look and i am so amazed to know that you made such a pretty jewelry :D

  9. I think its only ourselves that notice these tiny things, when we're getting all up close in the mirror. I think this is a bauitful look and your brows look badass x

  10. This is nice! I like your "steampunk style" jewels. The makeup is soft, you put your lashes really well.

  11. Ha ha! I was just about to ask about the jewelry, and then I read the last line. I love the makeup and the jewelry. And they complement each other beautifully.

    I don't see any application flaws. It's all perfect (as usual) to me.

  12. I think this is just lovely. It's simple, soft, and elegant. Very pretty :D

  13. The make up is great and jewelry is to die for! Wish I would have time/energy/knowledge/place to do my own jewelry too.

  14. Love your application, beautiful!

  15. Beautiful and i LOVE the earrings, you're very talented!

  17. That crease colour is gorgeous :) and you look especially regal today

  18. Love this look - it's very striking. Flipped past it quickly last night while showing hubby some of your other looks & he commented on it as well!

  19. Hi,
