So I took a bit of an unplanned hiatus, and I am happy to say that I am finally back with a new blog post! While things have been rather busy for me, I still have had plenty of opportunity to shop and stash away new makeup! I have learned that I can accumulate new makeup much faster than I can blog about it :(
So I'd better get going!
Today's blog post features an absolutely stunning collection of shadows by Sleek Makeup. I picked up the Arabian Nights palette, and it has some beautiful shades if you are wanting to create a shimmery, sultry, colorful smoky eye. You can also go a bit dramatic and neutral with it as well, which is what I wanted to do for this look today.
I used a gold shadow on the lid, and blended it in to a blue, then used a gorgeous black on the outer edge.
I gently blended the colors, and used a soft bronze shadow as my transition color in the crease.
Let's see what I came up with! I hope you like it!
♥ Nyx Jumbo pencil in Milk to lid
♥ Nyx Jumbo pencil in Slate to lower lash line
♥ Shade 1 "Gold Souk" (shimmery gold) to lid
♥ Shade 2 "Simbad's Seas" (deep blue) to mid lid
♥ Shade 3 "1001 Nights" (black) to outer corner, V, and edge of lower lash line
♥ Shade 4 "Sorcerer" (twilight blue) to lower lash line
♥ Shade 5 "Aladdin's Lamp" (bronze) to crease, gently blended out
♥ Ulta shadow in Naked (matte vanilla) as highlight to brow bone
♥ Black Eyeliner to lash and water line
♥ Black mascara
♥ Red cherry lashes in 107's
FOUNDATION & BLUSH:
♥ Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 120
♥ Maybelline Pressed Powder in Cameo
♥ Ulta Blush in Afterglow
♥ Wet N' Wild Lip Pencil in 666
♥ Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Warm Latte
There you have it! My first go with this pretty little collection. I can't wait to put some of those beautiful jewel tones to use. They are perfect for a fun night out :)
