Light Blue & Purple + Glitter look with Aromaleigh Lost in Faerie

So I haven't tried the new Aromaleigh collections even though I have had them for a while.  I got my last trade order from Aromaleigh and I think I just felt overwhelmed with how much stuff there was that I didn't go through and look at everything.  Because once I get into it, I'd be playing and swatching the shadows for hours and I don't really have time to do that. So I decided to go through one collection at a time.
 It sounds stupid to be overwhelmed with makeup but it's kinda like when you have sooo many shoes that you can't decide which pair to wear with an outfit. Yep, it's like that. So one collection at a time seems to be easier. :-)

This is my first look with the Lost in Faerie shadows. I was thinking it made me look like a faerie, like a fantasy sort of look.  But my husband probably gave me the best compliment ever on my makeup. He got home from work and called me "pretty sparkly girl". Then he said my eyes looked like pretty fish, the glitter looked like shimmery fish scales. He is an art nerd so I think that's why he appreciates my makeup looks...even though sometimes he hates some colours on me. Hee hee.

Also, the NYX candy glitter liner works very well as a base for loose glitter. So if anyone wants to try glitter looks, the candy glitter liner is a cheap and good quality base for covering your whole eye area (it does not crease!) or using it as a liner on top of your liner (better than using it alone as you have something to follow) and pack more loose glitter on top to make some really sparkly liner. Really, this stuff is multi-functional and awesome.

This look really is so much more pretty in person. I wish cameras could capture it but you know what it's like. Meh!
