BIG Eyes and Aromaleigh Eye Shadows

Hey, Everyone!

As many of you know, I am currently working on a local production of the Broadway musical Hairspray. I'm doing the makeup for my SUPER GREAT friend, Jere Van Patten who is starring in the lead role as Edna Turnblad.  It's such a blast!  This is a great show with so much talent; I'm happy to be a part of it. :) If you follow me on Instagram, you will see a few snaps from backstage. :)  We still have a few more shows to go! I will post more about this later, so stay tuned!

For this week's makeup look, I wanted to play with some beautiful shadows I received from Aromaleigh Cosmetics.  When I first visited the company website I was really intrigued.  The colors and the creativity are incredible.  For this look I wanted BIG eyes, with dreamy FANTASY colors, so these shadows are perfect!

I paired that concept with a fun pair of lashes and some GIANT circle lenses.
I did this at about.... two o'clock in the morning, and I'm surprised I look as ALERT as I do.
I might post the BEFORE picture if I get brave!

Here is the look!
