Very simple glitter and liner look with Aromaleigh

This look is one I did when we got back from camping. I didn't feel like doing much, so I didn't.  But I had to run errands so I wanted to do something.   Just face powder, glitter, liner and filled in my brows. No mascara or fake lashes. This glitter is much more complex than it shows. It shimmers different colours but looks like a boring silver in most of the pics. :-(

I used my work camera so I could take some pics in natural light. It has a very wide lens as you can tell, the first pic is tall and I took the pic myself. I cropped the rest but was able to capture my fav poison pendant. Yay!  I only have perfume in it though. So it could be considered poison to someone who thinks it stinks. Heh heh!
blurry pic above shows the colours better.

Eyes (all applied in this order):
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy (applied to upper lids and rubbing in gently with ring finger)
AL bete noir glitter - eve (applied to upper lids with MAC 228 by patting/pressing)
Kryolan Aqua color Liner - black (applied wet with water, using MAC 210 on upper lash line and extending out)
Ardell Lash Growth Accelerator (applied like mascara, this stuff is clear but I'm still wearing it)

Lips: mark. glow baby glow luxe lipgloss in pearl

Face: Skin MD Shielding lotion
AL Viole Foundation Powder in 2CL (applied with Jumbo buffer brush) 
Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Powder in Translucent Light (applied using AL flocked sponge by patting then blending) I found this powder works better for me when worn on top of my regular foundation. Makes a great finishing powder.
Here's a dorky pic of me playing Condemned 2. I'm all glued to my couch and the TV...wearing my fun bloomers. :-D  This was taken a few weeks ago. 


  1. Yay love the video game shot! Cool lid color, too.

  5. very pretty! I swear you have the perfect face structure! love the blog, happy to be following it :)

    looking forward to your next posts!

  6. Great simple look! If only my full-on looks looked as good as your "simple" looks. LOL I love the gamer pic. We all have our weaknesses!

  7. I love this look on you, it's more natural for you. Soo pretty ;)


  8. love the necklace & earrings - did you make those??

  9. It's the firts time that I see your looks, and I think they're amazing!

    The poison pendant it's really beautiful.

    I'll follow your blog, I really think your fotos give a lot of ideas.

    Warm Regards! ^^

  10. I love all your jewelery! the glitter make-up is nice, like it too :)

  11. Pretty look, love it :)
    Love the last pic XD

  12. You look gorgeous in the pictures! I prefer not to wear mascara either when I have to do some make up look when I'm going to run errands or something but not feeling like doing the full make up look.

    The last picture is fun! x

  13. I love that glitter. It's so odd to find a neutral glitter.
    Love your stripy bloomers too! :D

  14. COOOOOL shorts! I like how your "running errands" makeup is way prettier than most people's "going out at night" makeup, heehee.

  15. I loved this one so much but didn't get to post this AM Blix, but you inspired me to use Eve in a look today! Lovely!

  16. i absolutely love the necklace/earringset. where did you find it?

  17. The makeup is lovely, as usual, but I'm afraid those bloomers are scene-stealers for me. They are awesome! Did you make them?

  18. Simple yes...Simply Beautiful! I love your bloomers. They're much cuter than boxers but just as functional.
