Soft, Simple Green and Purple look using Aromaleigh

It's been a great weekend! Got back from camping a little while ago, we are tired! I'll post details and pics from the camping trip soon.  My skin broke out and my psoriasis flared up a bit from the trip, but it's not terrible. It is noticeable in the pics (psoriasis is in left corner mouth/laugh line and chin area, tiny zits on forehead) but like I said, it's not terrible. It's just there.
  I wasn't planning on doing makeup once I got home but decided to go ahead and do a soft and simple look. No glitter and no fake lashes. I wanted to see how my lashes were doing in the growing out process as I (like many of you) have long lashes with see through tips. So I can't see the length until I put mascara on. They have gotten longer but aren't back to their original length. Although only the outer corner lashes are freakishly long and back to normal. I am a HUGE dork and measured them...they are over half an inch long! Holy crap! The ones on my right eye look nuts. I could use a lash straightener or can click on all pics to enlarge them and see what I mean. :-O

Anyway! Here's the look. Seems almost boring when used to wearing glitter and faux lashes. But it's nice to switch things up from time to time.
