Silver Grey Look Using Aromaleigh and Prescriptives

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your holidays. Here's one of my favorite looks of late. I was pretty impressed with the Aromaleigh's Elemental Lustre in Awe that I used for this look. I used to hate the Elemental Lustres because when I apply them, they turn out to be one hot metallic mess on my eyes. I realized that they looked that way because I had been foiling them. I used Awe dry on my lid, and the outcome was really pretty. I can't wait to re-discover my Elemental Lustres and create looks for them now that I know how to properly apply them.



Awe is a gorgeous silvery gold color. In the picture above, you can definitely see the gold nuances.

Happy holidays ;)

I had that trouble when I tried to wetline with the Elementals, they didn't end up looking right. However, dry, they're fabulous and multi-dimensional. I particularly love Underground and Swank.

Nikki- thank you! Happy Holidays sis! I'm loving greys and silvers, they are my fave holiday colors. :)

Phyrra- happy holidays! I agree, Swank is beautiful, and thanks for the heads up, would have to try Underground. Dry is the way to go with the Elementals.
