Gotta Love: Sleek Make Up

Finally, I found a matte eyeshadow palette and it comes in the best color combination that I really wanted; browns and nude.  Introducing Sleek's i-Divine Au Naturel palette which I bought from Digital Traincase.  It costs about 650 pesos only, much cheaper as compared with the ever popular Urban Decay Nude Palette.  

The palette consists of 12 colors, 8 matte and 4 glittery ones.  All colors are a bit earthy which is perfect for everyday wear (for our skin tone, I really do not get how blues or greens can be worn day to day).  The colors looks natural (thus, the name) and can be built up to a more smoky eye effect for night time.  It comes pretty close as well to the UD palette.

Top Row: Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast, Taupe
Bottom Row: Conker, Moss, Bark, Mineral Earth, Regal, Noir
It comes with a sponge applicator, great for retouching but I prefer to use brushes.  The best part though, is that it comes with a very big mirror!  I can see both of my eyes in it :)

So one afternoon with nothing to do, I decided to try it out and get my glam on.  Haha!  For this look, I used Honeycomb for the base and Bark to add a little more drama.  For the highlight, I used Nougat.

The outdoor light washed out my make up (a lot) so I took a picture with flash.  I'm very big with contouring now as well and I read somewhere that it is best done if you are going to have your pictures taken with flash.  I placed a bit of contour in the hollows of my cheeks and sides of my nose.

I feel that I am going to overuse this eye make up!  I'm really loving it and I can't wait to try out other looks using other colors from this palette.  Hope you liked it too :)
