Orange Kiwi Smoothie Look Using Aromaleigh Mineral Eyeshadows

Here’s an orange-kiwi smoothie look using some of my lovely Aromaleigh mineral eyeshadows. I used Tigrilla and Cricket from the limited edition L’orchidee collection, Amarante from the Bete Noire collection, and Holy Grail Pure Hue eyeshadow. I went to the MAC counter wearing this, and two MAC MAs complimented me on the look. I really love the combination of colors, and I think this would be one of my favorite looks.

I also used the 6-piece Blush and Contour palette to contour, and the bottom-right blush in the 10-pc blush palette.

I used Adorned With Grace shimmer blush in Fascinating on top of the blush.

Here’s a step-by-step illustration. All items Aromaleigh unless otherwise noted.

Apply Urban Decay primer potion all over lid, brows, lower lashline. Using a fluffy shader brush, apply MAC paint pots in Perky on inner lid, and Greenstroke on outer lid.

Using a stiff shader brush (MAC 239 or Loew Cornell Maxine’s Mop 3/8″, apply Tigrilla dry on inner lid.

Using another stiff shader brush, apply Cricket dry on middle of the lid.

Using the same brush, apply Amarante dry on outer lid.

Using the same brush, apply Holy Grail dry on the outer V and crease. Blend the colors in quick, sweeping motions in one direction with the MAC 217 brush.

Apply MAC Nanogold eyeshadow on the browbone using Stila brush no. 5.

Using a Loew Cornell American Painter 4300 taklon brush, apply Tigrilla damp on inner lower lashline. Wipe color down using a wet wipe, take Cricket and apply on mid lower lashline, and Holy Grail on outer lower lashline.

Like so.

Apply MAC Blacktrack fluidline on upper lashline. Apply Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero to tightline and on waterline. Apply Red Cherry falsies #66. Apply mascara.
