When Liloo told me last week about her Sleek Saturday series, I knew I had to get on board with this. I have 5 of these palettes languishing in my makeup drawers and, even though they are cheap, that's still £30 of makeup sitting around not earning its keep.
To ease myself in gently, I went for the Storm palette this week. Storm is the only one of my Sleek palettes that gets anything even approaching regular use, hence it's the scruffiest.
I had planned to do something more exciting than this, but time ran away from me as usual and I ended up having to use the palette for a look that I could actually wear to go out in the daytime, for lunch in town.
The colours I used were these:
For me, when in doubt, go gold. I love gold eyeshadow - I think it really brightens up blue or green eyes especially, and it's hard to go wrong. Which is always good.
Other Products used:
Vichy Dermablend Foundation (15 and 25 mixed together); MAC MSF Natural (Light-Medium); Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush (Peach Satin); NARS Powder Blush (Deep Throat) - some days, one blusher just isn't enough
Eyeshadows from Storm Palette as above; MAC Fluidline (Blacktrack); Clinique High Impact Mascara (Black)
Sleek Pout Paint (Minx)
Next week, I promise I'm going to make a real effort to use one of the truly neglected palettes, and do something a bit more out of my comfort zone!
