Make-up Monday | A Look Using Sleek i-Candy Palette


Hey Beauties...
As a way of getting into a routine and posting more I thought I would give the whole 'Make-up Monday' thing ago and try to post every Monday different make-up looks iv been loving or that I've tried, as my WOMF posts and other Make-up look posts seem to be getting the most hits, I will still do a few WOMF posts, these will be more for nights out, dates, special occasions, trying new palettes ect. 


So I thought I'd start off with a summery look I have been loving recently using my Sleek i-Candy palette, I have done two looks using this before, you can see them HERE or you can read my thoughts on the whole candy collection HERE.


As you can see this look is a colourful twist on the smoky eye look but still quite subtle and in my opinion perfect for spring/summer.


To create this look I started by using my Urban Decay Primer Potion, this step as quickly become part of my routine, I don't even have to think about it any more.
1. After priming my eye lids, I went in with 'Bon Bon' all over my lid but not going too close to the outer corner.
2. Then I used 'Blue Fizzle' on the outer corner of my eyes and very lightly used a fluffy brush to blend the edges.
3. Following that I used my fluffy brush and lightly used 'Strawberry Sherbet' in my crease just to add more depth to the eyes and help with the transition from the colours on my lid to my eyebrow bone and to eliminate and harsh edges.
4. To finish up I used 'Parma Violet' to line my upper lash line as I thought black would look to harsh for this look.

Then finally I used Max Factor Mascara Wild Mega Lash Black just to completely finish the look off and add volume to the lashes.
With this look I like to keep the lips quite nude or just natural, I might add a tiny bit of colour to my lips by using E.L.Fs Conditioning Balm in Peaceful Pink, you can read my review HERE

Hope you liked this post, let me know your thoughts in the comments below also if there are any looks you'd like me to do for next week, I will be posting these every Monday. 
Hope you enjoyed this.

Much love
