Hey Everyone!

I decided to do a post on my looks with the Storm Sleek Pallette. I hope you enjoy it! Its mostly a nude look with a mix of colours and I applied the Sleek Life's A Peach Blush and Revlon 117 Neutral Nude Lipstick constantly to help achieve the looks!

DAY 1.

This was my first look in this series.

Just a mix of -

Sleek's Storm Pallette

Sleek's Life's  A Peach Blush


Revlon's Neutral Nude.

I love this look because it is easy to achieve and I think gives a healthy glow.

I might be doing a tutorial on how I work with the colour's from this particular Pallette.

Also, I applied a little bit of colour from the Sleek Sunset Pallette to give me a sort of brown light smokey crease.

On my cheeks is the Blush-Life's  A Peach-By Sleek.

I originally was not a fan of this Blush but became more inclined to use it because it gives the cheeks a lovely glow and is barely if at all noticeable.

I think it is perfect for giving a glowy finish.

DAY 2.

Sleek-Sunset Pallette
Storm Pallette
Life's A Peach Blush.
For this look, I decided to play with just a bit of colour.

I applied a bright orange eye shadow on my mobile lid from the Sleek Sunset Pallette and just worked with a bit of black on my crease to dim the colour down.

I think this look is perfect for wanting just a touch of colour with not too much of a fuss.

I also decided to play on my cheeks with my staple Life's A Peach Blush just to keep the whole look minimal and glowy.

DAY 3.

I made a bit of effort with my hair that day lol. For the other two, I just used straighteners or bendy rollers but I decided to play with the Nicky Clarke Slim Tong for this look.  I love it because it gives amazing volume and body to the hair and the curls last for a few days which is always handy.

This look I think is more of a toned down day time smokey eye.

I mainly worked with the dark black colours and the nude and slightly tinted browns in the Sleek Storm Pallette with just a hint of sparkle which is barely noticeable in the tear duct eye area.

And for my cheeks I used as always, Sleek's Life's  A Peach Blush because like I said I think it just gives the right touch of finish to a nice neutral look.

I decided to go with a fishtail braid as the weather in Ireland right now is not suited for any hairstyle out of a braid or bun!

I think the Fishtail Braid is great for corporate events or the workplace even because it does not take away from looking serious but rather helps to show just a respectable amount of personality.

I tonged my hair with Nicky Clark's slim tong because I thought it would frame my face better.

An up close look at it. I just knotted it at the ends with a translucent rubber.

 Thought I'd share how the whole look came together with a fishtail braid.

Thanks so much for reading this blog!

Until Next Time!

Hey Everyone!

So I decided to share my look for the day and its themed 'Corporate Affairs.'
Its just a look I think would work best in an office setting.

The products I used were-
Sleek's Blemish Balm Primer
Mac's Studio Fix Fluid NW 40
Mac's Blot Powder
Sleek's Sunset Pallette
Sleek's Storm Pallette

And on my lips-
Revlon's Almost Nude No 117.


My eyes-Sleek's Sunset and Storm Pallette.
Lips-Revlon's Nude.
My Cheeks-Sleek's Blush By 3 Pallette(Flame)-Bonfire
Sleek's Contour Kit-Dark
Concealer-Mac's Studio Select NW 40

I thought this would be a better picture of it up close. I straightened my hair out as well to add to the whole idea of looking corporate.
