Blue Liner Using Aromaleigh Mineral Makeup and Pop Beauty Brown Eyes Palette



Here's a look using neutral shadows with a pop of blue on the lashline. I used my Pop Beauty Brown Eyes Wallet Palette and Aromaleigh Rocks! Sonic eyeshadow in Bluespark. I took step-by-step pictures of this look, only for them to be corrupted in my camera's memory card! I hope to retrieve them soon, but for now, here are the FOTD pics:

Urban Decay primer potion
Pop Beauty Brown Eyes palette
Aromaleigh Rocks! Sonic eyeshadow in Bluespark wetlined on the upper lashline using MAC Charged Water

Lips:

Also, just want to share photos of my reunion with my parents. I hadn't seen them in 2.5 years, so we're on vacation right now in California touring them around. This is such a happy time for our family, and I want to share it with you guys.


L-R: my uncle, dad, me, hubby, mom and my little boy at the Premium Outlets in Cabazon in Palm Springs in California. Every time we go to California, we always have to pass by this outlet mall. This time, I bought 4 Coach bags, a pair of Oakley sunglasses for hubby, presents for my parents and brother, a pair of shoes for my little boy, and a facial cleanser and Clinique makeup remover from the Cosmetics Company Outlet. Didn't like the MAC collection there, because I already have most of the colors they have there. Their product stock wasn't that nice.


We had dinner at one of the casual fine dining restaurants at the casino hotel we stayed in at Palm Springs in California.


My wonderful dish: seared ruffie (a delicately flavored, yummy flaky fish) with garlic lemon butter sauce on a bed of risotto rice


My parents' shrimp and fries with tartar sauce on the side


my little boy's Kobe beef burger


my aunt's garlic seafood pasta

izumi- thanks girl! I am indeed so happy! I am a daddy's girl so this is one of the happiest moments of my life. :)

jojoba- thanks! The palette was dirt-cheap (got it at Beautycrunch.com), but the pigments are rich and the finish is amazing.

Askmewhats- aww thanks, you're too sweet! I just had to have my hair cut short, I couldn't stand it when my hair touches my collar!

gio- thanks! Too bad I lost the close-up shots, Aromaleigh's Bluespark e/s looked amazing close up.

Phyrra- Aromaleigh's Rocks! Sonic rocks!

Your foundation always look absolutely flawless. Maybe you should teach me your secrets someday. :) And I'm drolling over your aunt's garlic seafood pasta and your fish/risotto. Typically what I would have loved to eat. Yummy!
