Gold, Teal and Purple look using Aromaleigh

Here's a look that I really like how it turned out. Sort of looks peacocky (hee hee!) to me. I tried putting the Revlon lashes in Blue Shadow on my upper lashes, but they don't work at all with the shape of my eyes. Mine are big and very rounded on the outer corner and these things just didn't look good. So I put them on the lower lashes instead and I really love how they look there paired with bigger lashes on top.

To get the blended look between the two main lid colours (gold and teal), I apply them right next to each other so they are touching with a rather defined straight up and down line, then I take my MAC 217 brush and sweep quickly in a side to side, zig zagging up and down the line just where the colours meet.  You can also just use the zig zag technique from top to bottom only, if it's weird going up.
Hope that makes sense!
