“Moulin Rouge” is our first Limited Edition eyeshadow collection of 2012, and is also the largest limited edition collection in Aromaleigh history- a myriad of 35 gorgeous shades spanning the chromatic scale in texture, finish, shimmer, sheen, sparkle and glimmer!
The inspiration for the collection is vintage posters and dancer images, as well as the distinctive paintings of Henri Toulouse-Lautrec and today’s modern haute couture deriving clear inspiration from the Belle Epoque era of the world famous Moulin Rouge.
Visit our Moulin Rouge Pinterest board, as we’ve started posting images that inspired the colors in this collection, and we’ll continue to expand this board with more material, as well as our interpretation, via eyeshadow.
Many of the shades in this collection were created to be very easy-wear, and are what we describe as “slightly sheer”, meaning that they are not as strongly and densely pigmented as many of the vivid/deep/dramatic shades from past Aromaleigh collections. Our goal with this collection, due to the many bright and deep shades, was to make them easy to use, layer and if desired, use eyeshadow primer, sealant or epoxy to max-out the color capacity.
So don’t be afraid to sample and experiment, even with the bright, vivid or dark shades… we’ve purposefully blended many of them to be user friendly as well as versatile!
