Soft, shimmery look with Aromaleigh

So as of this morning I'm still feeling like crap. My landlady called yesterday...I answered and she thought I was my husband! Ha!  So you know I must sound really gross.
 I have been stuck in the house all week and need to run errands today.  I did this look before 8 am on a Saturday morning! I know I should be sleeping in to get more rest, but I can't because my body is busy trying to make me cough up my lungs! Might as well get me arse out of bed and do something. I figured I'd do a makeup look since I haven't in over a week. Plus I sorta did my hair...looks OK from the front but the back...well you won't be seeing it!
 There was no thought put into this look. I just knew I wanted to use the new shtuff I got from Aromaleigh and wanted something softer as it is so early. If you have not tried the Jumbo Buffer brush from Aromaleigh, you need to! That thing is so soft, dense and applies my powder foundation so much better. I'm annoyed that I didn't get it a long time ago. It makes my other real animal hair brushes feel like total crap. I will be getting the other faux brushes for sure.
 Anyway, here's the look. I don't look sick at all! Awesome! However, I did have to stop for a few minutes in between some picture taking for a "coughing fit". You know what I mean. Where you start coughing and it just keeps going and going until your face turns red, your eyes start watering and you feel like you can't get air in for the next cough. Yeah, that was fun...NOT!

So who has plans for the weekend? I plan on catching up on reading and commenting on your blogs! That and sitting on my butt while drinking lotsa hot tea. My throat hates me right now.  :-(


  1. well you look ABSOLUTELY gorgeous. Get better!

  2. Gorgeous :) Love the color combo. Your hair is really pretty like that. I hope you feel better soon.

  3. Yeah, I have got plans, too much plans. Mother's Day means that I have to go visit my mom and grandma, which will be bun but I have a big exam on Monday morning and I really should be studying for, but I don't have enough time to study enough so I don't feel like studying at all. :/ Plus there's hockey on tv and I can't watch hockey and study at the same time, which means that I'm watching hockey instead of studying cause hockey is more fun. I procrastinate too much.

    I'm in awe of your lashes. Wonderful look, again! :)

  4. Hi Blix, this is a beautiful look! I love the softness of it! Glad you're feeling a little better anyway. :D

  6. Very pretty! I really like this look. I have to try bellflower in the crease like that. I love Aromaleigh eyeshadows, they are fabulous.

    ps. Peppermint tea with a little honey is the best for sore throats. I use manuka honey if I have it.
