(My Samsung galaxy is broken so it’s iPhone pictures for awhile)
This look was super simple I used the purples and browns from Sleek garden of Eden palette and the orange from Sugarpill’s burning hearts palette.
Lipstick is Sally Hansen in lilac (it was only a £1!)
Blush as usual is Sleek’s blush by 3. If you don’t own any of them what are you waiting for? They cannot do wrong (apart from the cream ones, which I use as a lipstick base most of the time) and for the price it’s even better.

I mentioned in my previous post how I’m really trying to work on ‘skin’ and making flawless glowy skin the focus. And this is what I’ve achieved so far. Flawless? yes! Glowy? Um not so much.
I’m still trying to find the products that work best for my skin in regards to getting that ‘glow’. Having very oily skin is making this difficult as I feel after a few hours I look like I’ve placed my face in a bucket of oil (obviously that maybe a slight exaggeration, but still).
Products for this look are, Sleek’s bare skin foundation, Nars stick concealer (to highlight), a mix of Ben Nye topaz and banana poweder, Inglot lose powder in 19 (for contour. However according to the sales person at IMATS they don’t do any more.), Sleek crochet blush (from the Lace blush by 3) and on the lips NYX lipliner in chestnut with yash and touch by mac on top.
Anonymous said: which sleek products would you say compliment brown skin tones really well?
Well Sleek as a company was started for deeper/browner skintones so all of their products will more or less be suited.
My favourites from Sleek are:
The blushes (particularly blush by 3, as you get more product for your money, rose gold as it works as a lovely highlighter/shimmer and pixie pink as its hard to find a baby pink blush that doesn’t come out as ashy on black skin, pixie pink is just right).
The eyeshadow palettes (my top three iare garden of eden, oh so special and snapshots).
Finally their eyebrow pencil.
I hope that helps! :)

I know it has been awhile I’ve had exams and a hell of a lot of work.
As a gift to myself for finishing exams I got some new lippes (left to right): kelly yum yum, dogy girl, heroine and pink nouveau.
Kelly yum yum just like candy yum yum does stain slightly so be sure to use a lip primer before hand.
By now I’m sure you know how much I love my bright pinks and purples so I have been debating about purchasing heroine and pink nouveau for sometime now. Im so pleased that I finally got them.

MUA (found at Superdrugs and online ) velvet lip lacquers £3 each (unfortunately I was not able to get all the colours so I have 4/5).
From left to right: Criminal, Reckless, Kooky and Atomic. Top swatches are with flash bottom are without flash.
They dry completely matte! Once they are on they are on! For £3 I really don’t think you can go wrong at all, I love the colours I love the texture and I love the price! Certainly a winner in my eyes.

I am ready for spring and spring colours!! I finally gave in and purchased candy yum-yum lipstick. I don’t regret it one bit!
On the eyes is Sleeks oh so special palette with Maybeline 24hr tattoo in pink gold on the centre with Shu Uemura glitter shadow to top it off (you know I love me some glitter). Lashes sultry lashes from Primark.
Blusher is also Sleek, pink parfait and pink ice.
I’m wearing Sleeks new CC cream (in medium) instead of foundation. So far I really like it. It has a matte finish and it has a very very good coverage for a CC cream, I was still able to cream contour and highlight without any problems. I don’t think the amount you get is worth the price you pay, you only get 25ml (0.84 floz) for £8.99. But it is beautiful on the skin, and it wears very well throughout the day. It’s certainly worth a look if you are looking for a CC cream.
I hope you are all having a wonderful day!
Ps:I’m in the process of trying to grow out my eyebrows, do any of you have any tips ?
