I did a very non-blended look today as I wanted to have very distinct bands of color. In retrospect I think I should have blended more. I really like how bright and summery this feels. It makes me think of the Caribbean!
I like the Spell holo gloss in Moonlit. It doesn’t capture well on film, but it gives a nice blue iridescence on top of the pink lipstick.
I haven’t used my MAC Fluidline in a while but it’s still as soft and as fresh as the day I bought it. Love it!

You can see I’m wearing my favorite Flexi-8 in these photos
I’d been emailed, asking where I do my makeup.I do my makeup at my vanity. I had lights installed above it to make it easier to see, since the lighting in my home is weird and not conducive to doing makeup in the bathroom!
In this picture you can see my little vanity, the lights above it and the lamp next to it. To the left of the vanity is my nail polish storage. To the right is my makeup tackle box that has my non-daily use in it. Next to the tackle box (though you can’t see it) are my two sample binders for my mineral makeup samples. The 3 drawers on the left are filled with Aromaleigh samples and full sizes in the top drawer, and Fyrinnae samples and full sizes in the middle and bottom drawer. In the 3 drawers on the right I have a mix of Spell, Purely, Beautiful Girl, Glamour Doll and Archeytpe in the top drawer. The middle drawer is all Fyrinnae lip lustres and the bottom drawer is Nyx jumbo lip and eye pencils, Nyx gloss, a MAC gloss or two, some Aromaleigh lipstick, and Too Faced Glamour Gloss. The two purple trays on the left of my lower shelf hold a mix of things, MAC paints, my gel eyeliners, some products I use on occasion. I have 2 clear containers on that lower shelf, and the back one holds TheBalm Stainiac in Beauty Queen and my Tarte Cheek Stain in True Love. The front one holds all my mascaras and eyeliner pencils and Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

I think it came out very nice. I love the brightness of the shadows. The colors seem to match your earrings a little bit. Your makeup collection is divine. I need to get another tackle box. I filled mine up. I don’t know if that is bad or good…..Your skin always looks so great. You do a great job.
Aww thank you I think you’re right! I didn’t notice it before but the shadows work well with the earrings.Oh, that tackle box is pretty full! I have some more room in the top compartment, but not much.Thank you for the compliments on my skin! I am finally trying the Meow Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Siamese, and I think it looks better than Pampered Puss Inquisitive Sphynx.
I really like my current skin routine. I think it’s working for me
Hi, it’s LIsa from the Aromaleigh site! I didn’t get a chance to comment in the FOTD thread, but I wanted you to know I love this look! It’s so fun and summery! And your blog looks fantastic!
Hi Lisa Thank you!I’m glad you like it.
