Another look with Aromaleigh:
I'm using hestia, crucio, selene and ribbons, which is a glitter. I think this was all applied with water as I hadn't gotten my MAC mixing medium yet. And I think I was just using foundation as an eye base as I don't think I'd gotten any proper eye primer yet. I think it all still looked pretty though.
I've been noticing that the MAC mixing medium burns a little when I use it. I don't remember if it always has, but the last few times I've done my makeup I've definitely noticed it. It's happened with TKB Trading and Aromaleigh products, so I don't think it's the makeup. It's only when I'm actually applying my makeup, so I guess it fades as soon as it dries. It doesn't seem to cause any lasting irritation. I might try doing things with pressed powders for a while to give myself a break. EDIT: I think it's the glycerin in the mixing medium that burns. It's hygroscopic and sucks the moisture out of the skin.
