Dear Aromaleigh,

I'll let you in on a little secret: a year ago, my idea of makeup was putting on some mascara, but only for special occasions. Then, at the beginning of December, I decided to order from Aromaleigh after seeing so many gorgeous looks created by the lovely ladies on a forum I was a part of. I instantly fell in love. With the arrival of my first order came the beginnings of my new relationship with makeup. Before using Aromaleigh, I saw makeup as something that people used to cover up their flaws- something to hide behind. Then, I fell down a rabbit-hole of glorious color and sparkle and realized that makeup could be so much more than that. I discovered that makeup can be used as a celebration of self. That you don't have to think that makeup makes you more beautiful to enjoy using it. That women that know that they hold great beauty without makeup can still brighten up their days with a little (or a lot of) sparkle.
As sad as I am to see Aromaleigh close, I am grateful for all it has introduced me to. If you told me a year ago that I would own and love binders and boxes full of makeup, I wouldn't have believed you in the slightest. Although Aromaleigh gave me the golden ticket to enter the wonderful world of mineral makeup, my journey has since expanded. Aromaleigh started this journey for me, and the journey is not over even though Aromaleigh is closing. I have more Aromaleigh than I could possibly use up in 10 years anyways, so I have plenty of Aromaleigh sparkle left to enjoy.
