FOTD: Tropical Twist using Sleek Ultra Matte Palettes!


Hello my loves! 

I've always been one of those people that is easily sucked in by pretty looking eyeshadows at make-up counters, takes them home, stores them safely away in my pretty eyeshadow drawers and lets them gather dust. One time, I even found one of those teeny little yellow Selfridges bags stuffed under my bed with a few shadows in it. The receipt said it must have been under there a good 6 months. OOPS!

Anyways, my storage area was looking a bit full and cluttered so I had a little re-organisation to make space for more stuff and I came across so many beautiful shadows that I'd forgotten all about. There was only one thing for it: I had to start using them more often!

From that moment on I've got right back into experimenting and playing around with my eyeshadows to the point where I'm now instinctively applying it in the mornings. I have to say though, I didn't think I'd EVER use a yellow eyeshadow! All that changed just a couple of weeks ago when I purchased the Sleek Ultra Matte Palettes: Bright V1 and Dark V2.

One on particular day, I was in a bit of a rush for a dinner I had, I picked up the palettes and for some reason unbeknown to me I picked out the yellow from the Bright V1 and applied it around the eye. Probably due to the rushed nature of the moment I wasn't thinking: "What if it all goes horribly wrong? Cleaning it up takes time BA-ZITCH!"

 But no, I just went with it. I packed the yellow on, opted for the dark green teal shade from Dark V2 and blended it out using my beloved MAC 217 brush and gave it a little dusting of MAC's Wedge eyeshadow to eradicate the harsh lines. Et Voila!

The moral of the story? Always check under the bed and never throw out old Selfridges bags without checking, you just never know!
.. And get experimenting with your long forgotten eyeshadows and share the results to inspire others to do the same :)
