Make Up Look Using Sleek Lagoon Palette

18 Jul

I really like this palette but feel I haven’t really used it as much as I thought I would. You can see my full review of the Sleek Lagoon palette here. So I decided to create a look which I think has a slightly tropical feel and I thought it would look quite nice during the summer.

For this look I used the following shades from the palette;

Emerald

Pink Jewel

Sand Dollar

Oyster (this is the  shimmery white)

  • Apply a primer all over lid.  I used MUA eyeprimer.
  • Next apply Sand Dollar over two thirds of the eye starting from the inner corner.
  • Apply Pink Jewel to the rest of the lid and blend with Sand Dollar so there is on harsh lines between them.
  • Add Emerald to the upper and lower lash line and bring out into a wing at the outer corner of the eye. It easiest to do this with a thin eyeliner brush.
  • Finally add Oyster to the inner corners of eyes.  You could also use this to highlight the brow bone (I haven’t done this in this look).

Let me know what you think of this look and what looks you like creating with the Sleek Lagoon palette 🙂

Sleek Makeup Lagoon Palette (Aqua Collection) Review

14 Mar

I knew as soon as I saw this palette that I wanted it and it was officially released yesterday.  The Lagoon i-devine palette is from the Sleek Aqua collection which is a limited edition.  The collection also includes a blush and a collection of nail varnishes.

The Lagoon palette is packaged like all the other Sleek palettes, black packaging with a large mirror on the inside and a sponge applicator.  There is also a thin sheet which names all the colours.

The palette is made up of mainly shimmer shade with only three matte shades.  There is a good mix of colours in this palette and I feel that they will all look great for during the summer.  The colours like other Sleek palettes I’ve tried are quite pigmented but look even better over primer.

shades L-R; Sassea, Deep Water, Reflection, Emerald, Oyster and Black Pearl

All of the shades were swatched without primer. I’ve only used a couple of the shades so far but I’ve found that with a primer they last about 6-7 hours before they start to fade slightly.

Below is the first look that I created using the shades Sassea,  Deep Water and Oyster (at the inner corner).

11 Feb

I thought that this would be a great look to wear on Valentine’s Day however it could be worn any other time.

In this look I’m mainly going to focus on the eyes as I feel that’s the main part, but I’ll list the other products at the end.  The eyeshadows used in this look are from the Sleek Au Naturel palette.

The colours used are;

  1. Taupe
  2. Conker
  3. Mineral Earth

If using a primer apply first (I haven’t used one in this look).  Apply Taupe all over the lid.
