Make Up Look: Sultry Smokey Using the Sleek Storm Palette

Hey guys. I always seem to get requests for smokey eyes and I'll be honest with you, smokey eyes aren't my forte. I always seem to struggle in creating something different to whats already out there! So I had a little play this week and *think* I came up with something that is a little different, darker and almost more sultry than the classic smokey eyes that I normally think of. What do you think? I know for sure, I'll be rocking this on my next night out/special occasion!







 

For this look I went back to old faithful, the Sleek Storm palette. This palette gets so much use from me as you can probably tell and for £7.99 I really couldn't recommend it more! I used the Lime Crime Candy Eyeshadow Helper as a base along with Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Zero (look how small it is getting! Another well loved product!) I then went all over the lid with the second shade in. I used the brown on the bottom and skin coloured shade on the top for the crease as they were both matte so it made the look a little less shimmery.  I then used the navy shade for the inner and outer corners and the very first shade for the middle of my lid. I used the matte black under my lash line. Maybellines The Rocket for lashes and MAC's Ricepaper to highlight brow bone. Cosmo's Brow Kit* for brows. 
Overall I really do love this look. Its not often I actually like my own looks, but I can't wait to actually go out and wear this! The pop of gold in the center really brightens the eye, brings light to it and really dazzles! Let me know, what do you think? 

Have you tried the Sleek Storm Palette? If you haven't, you need too!

  2. Such a lovely look! How do you get the 'winged' lines so sharp, but still smokey?! Honestly, I would end up with it all over my face.

    1. Thank you Sam :) I literally make a wing using pencil eyeliner, like you would normally. I then blend it out a little bit but keep within the original wing and then go over it with shadow to get it "smokey" :)

  12. I'm so mesmerized by the way you coordinated the colors! I've never tried any Sleek palettes because they're not the easiest to get but I'd def. try this one out. A bunch of smokey shades in one palette? Yes, please!
