I used the Sleek Storm Palette (review coming soon) to get this look and I have to say that I LOVE this palette! I bought this and the Urban Decay Naked Palette at the same time and I have been reaching for the Sleek one so much more. The colours in this palette are just beautiful and as soon as I saw the stunning smokey teal colour in this palette, I knew I had to use it in a post!
The colours I used for the look are circled below in red. I only used two lid colours, the teal and gold, and then used the other shades for blending or darkening the crease.
Here are the swatches of the shades. There is a colour swatched next to the black but it's hard to see as it's pretty much my skin tone colour and it's matte which makes it great for blending.
To get the look I used the steps below:
Step 1: Prime lids using Urban Decay Primer Potion
Step 2: Apply MAC Indianwood Paint Pot to the lid. I used this because it's very neutral on my skin tone but you can use whatever works for you.
Step 3: Apply the gold shade from the Sleek Storm Palette to the inner half of the lid
Step 4: Apply the dark teal shade from the Sleek Storm Palette to the outer third of the lid
Step 5: Slowly start pulling the teal shade over onto the gold so you get a gradient effect. This technique can take a while to learn but it really just requires a light hand and patience.
Step 6: Pick up a mixture of the dark brown matte shade and the black matte shade from the Sleek Storm Palette on a blending brush and apply to the outer v and crease.
Step 7: Use the lightest nude matte shade from the Sleek Storm Palette to blend out any harsh edges.
Step 8: Apply liquid liner. I used the MeMeMe Cosmetics Eye Sweep liner (product sent for consideration).
Step 9: Apply mascara. I used the Avon Supershock mascara which I received free with a magazine.
Step 10: This step is optional but I finished off the look by applying a green liner to my bottom lashline. I used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On liner in Covet.
On an unrelated note, I went shopping yesterday and I came across these cute studs which came in a pack of 9 different earrings named the 'Coco' range (I'm assuming after Coco Chanel). They were from Colette Accessories which is an Australian accessories store which seems to mainly sell costume jewellery and bags.
How adorable are they? There was also a pair of small pearl studs, small diamante studs and a pair of plain gold heart studs included in the pack which I haven't shown. I have a nickel allergy but these are apparently nickel free so hopefully I can wear them without getting a reaction!
It took me a while to figure out what these were but they're little perfume bottles :)
