FOTD: Another Blue One!

It is a dreary day here today, so I wanted to do some fun makeup to lift my mood!

This is what I did (click to enlarge):


  • Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Light Beige
  • Dior Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Powder in 022 Cameo
  • Eve Pearl Bronzing Highlight Duo in Classic


  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • Aromaleigh Waltz (En Pointe Collection) – inner corner
  • Aromaleigh Return to Tiffany’s (Hot in the City Collection) – middle of lid
  • Aromaleigh Serenade (En Pointe Collection) – outer corner
  • Aromaleigh Morphing Moon (Les Papillons Collection) – crease
  • Aromaleigh Glowing Luna (Les Papillons Collection) – lightly to highlight
  • Aromaleigh Arabesque (En Pointe Collection) – on lower lashline
  • Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Liner in Sepia Ink
  • Clinique Superfine Liner for Brows in Black-Brown
  • …and I’m silly and just realized I still need to put mascara on!


  • MAC So This Season lipglass, blotted
  • Dior Creme de Rose Balm

…off to put some mascara on! Hehe!


Quick and Easy EOTD

Here is my eye of the day today; a nice neutral with a pop of blue. It was a very quick and easy (read: lazy day) eye look using only a few colors. I also apologize for the wild edges on my brows: eek! I’m still relying on iPhone pictures, so bear with me on the quality issue.

This look is using:

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • Aromaleigh Opulent Lustre in Fig (metallic finish) – as a wash all over eye
  • Aromaleigh Rocks! Sonic Eye in bluemonday (matte) – dry-lined and smudged up, also smudged in crease
  • Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Bone – highlight
  • Clinique Superfine Liner for Brows in Black Brown
  • Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara in Black

I’m really loving Fig; I’ve used it a lot in the past week or so since I’ve had it. It is such a nice neutral, blends well, stays put, and looks good with almost any color. It’s probably the perfect metallic neutral for me and my skintone, I can use it as a wash, blended into other looks, as a highlight for my inner corners, etc. Simply a beautiful and well done shadow in formula and color.

On my face today:

  • Aromaleigh Silk Primer
  • Aromaleigh Glissade in 2YL
  • MAC Cremeblend Blush in Joie de Virve
  • Dior Creme de Rose lip balm

It was a lazy day for me today; nothing to do but work on school stuff for the most part. I didn’t even bother lining my lower lash line or reach for more than the few colors already on my makeup table!
