So I thought I'd do a quick eyes of the day post, today I used my sleek graphite palette to create a toned down smokey eye using black and grey eye shadows, suitable for daytime - I just felt like jazzing up my make-up a bit today! However, as a bit of a challenge, I decided to apply my makeup using only the spongey applicator which comes inside the sleek palettes this is how I got on :
Not to bad really I don't think! I just used the different sides of the applicator for my light and dark shadows, used the other end to blend and blended a little more with my finger tip. I wanted to do this to show that if you don't have alot of makeup brushes you can still create a fab smokey eye, with what is available to you. I'll definately use the sponge applicator again!
As you can see although I have quite a lot of eyeshadow on my lid, it wasn't too overpowering when I had my eye open. I was really pleased with the way this turned out, I would never normally wear grey/black shadows during the day but this actually went with my outfit really nicely!
I took this photo once I had got home (around 4pm) after applying my make-up at 8 this morning - these shadows have such great staying power! I also used the too-faced herbal eye concealer as a base, loreal voluminous mascara and mac powerpoint eyeliner in the colour carbon :-)
