Golden Orange and Smokey Pink look with Victoria's Revenge by Aromaleigh

I had to make myself put makeup on today to get motivated. I haven't been feeling that great this week. My birth control pills have been making me feel really nauseous and tired. It comes in waves. I'll feel fine then not and back and forth. I've been napping a lot because it's been really hard for me to focus on work or fun things, when I have to stop what I'm doing, breath slowly and swallow a lot because I feel like I'm either going to pass out or barf.  But that's normal so I have to suck it up.  Doesn't make it any easier though.
To cheer me up I wore a big flower in my hair. I love the colour of it!
Today I wanted to use some pigments from the Victoria's Revenge collection that I haven't tried. So here you go:

  21. Such a pretty look, and very well executed! I'm sorry the pill's making you feel crappy. I switched pills a couple times (long story), and came across one that made me nauseous and dizzy 24/7, so got off that one fast. It is no fun at all. I hope you get back to feeling better soon!
