Simple eye looks using the sleek palettes! :-)

Hiya! Today way my day off work so i've had a great lazy day, and I thought it might me nice to try a couple of makeup looks using my brand spanking new sleek original palette and the storm palette which I already had. I used all sleek shadows in both of these looks (I've put pictures at the bottom of both palettes and numbered the shadows I used from them so you can see exactly which ones i used :-) I also used the sleek eye drama mascara which I bought a few days ago. So here is the first look I went for, its mainly based around the gorgeous purple from the original palette I was lusting about in my last post! I'm sorry there isn't a photo of my lids for some reason I completely forgot to take one and by the time I realised I'd taken all the make-up off - what a goon!

I was really pleased with the way this look turned out, I think its quite a nice colourful twist on the smokey eye, Normally I've shyed away from purple for fear of looking like someone has given me a black eye but i'd definately wear this look on a night out (just need to find a purple dress now!) For this I used the number 7 smoothing and brightning eye base (which i reviewed a few days ago - love it!) The Shadows numbered 1 for inner corner,2 for crease and 3 for outer corner all pictured below from the original sleek palette.

I then used GOSH's liquid eye liner pen in black to across my upper lash line, and MAC's powerpoint liner in engraved on my lower lash line and went over both of these with the purple shadow (number 3) using a really thin liner brush. I finished the look off with a little of the black shadow (number 4) in the sleek storm palette below which i blended up and across from my outer corner and a quick coat of the sleek mascara! :-)

For my next look I went for earthy browns and greens, these colours would look fab with brown and hazel eyes!

For this I again started with the number 7 eye base then used the shadow labelled 5 from the storm pallet for my inner corner, 6 from the original palette for the crease (a gorgeous moss green with gold shimmer!) and 7 and 8 from the storm palette for the outer corner. I then used a number 7 liner in brown to line my lower lash line. Apologies for my lashes in the last picture, I've already grumbled a bit about the sleek eye drama mascara but said I'd give it a fair try, however here you can see how clumpy its made my lashes! *sad face* I think this is mainly due to how hard it is to apply with that silly bendy wand! I don't think i'll be using this one again, nevertheless I think I'll still try the other sleek mascara's as the are so cheap!

These are my first make-up looks so I hope you like them! Let me know what you think and I might try a few more :-)

Hope you're all having a lovely evening!
