Have you tried Sleek Make Up yet?!? OMG! It is completely fabulous! I ordered their new Sparkle Pallete and it came just over a week ago. I have been playing with it ever since. I'm in love! The eye shadow is so velvety and and intensely pigmented. A little goes a long way. I have some more stuff coming from Sleek and I can not wait! They are a cosmetic company based across the pond in London. I first heard of them from my favorite British make up artists Pixiwoo. Both Sleek and Pixiwoo are linked on my sidebar to the right. The best part about Sleek Make Up is how affordable it is. The Sparkle Pallete is just 10$ and comes with 12 colors!! Amazing right?!?
Here are a few looks I have done with it. GREAT for party looks. I will also do a video tutorial this week using this pallete and upload it before Friday for you all. So hopefully you can get some fun ideas for any New Year's Eve events you will be going to.
This first look I did for a family Christmas party a week ago. I plan to repeat something similar for New Years Eve. It was so much fun! I LOVED it. I totally stood out but I like it that way ;-)
And yeah I'm in the car LOL I didn't leave much time for photos before I left. So I took them in the car with my hubby driving and my cute kiddies in the back seat. These 2 photos are taken from different angles.
Here are your close ups.
I'll show you in my video tutorial how to get that defined line also known as a "cat eye" look with the eye shadow and eye liner.
Next look I did with the blue colors in the pallete. I didn't do it for any special occasion. Just wanted to try them out. But I think they would be fun for a party or night out.
The blues are really kind of icy and I love it.
Instead of black eye liner on my lower water line I used a pearlescent white liner to open the eye a bit.
I think people are scared to try blue eye shadows. Blue eye shadow like blush has gotten a bad reputation since the 80's. When done right they are really beautiful.

This video is the start of a theme for my next few videos. All will be holiday party inspired. Starting off with a simple, easy and yet glamorous look. This video is in 2 parts. Again, still trying to figure out that whole lighting thing. Not so sure this lighting was any better. But it works. I'm still convince it is my wall color :-\ Which I can't do much about. We may be painting or we may be moving. Just depends on a few factors. But that has nothing to do with make up so here you go!
So I wanted to show you 2 different lip colors that would go with this look. A bright color that would be for a party or date night or whatever.
And this is a more nude pink lip for daytime, work, everyday look.
