Get the Look: Tri-colour Blue Eye (Sleek 'Circus' Palette)Wednesday, January 26, 2011
I'm finally doing a makeup tutorial! I decided to leave work for another day (after all, it is a holiday, right?) and post a little look done with the Sleek 'Circus' palette.
I just received it a couple of days ago, so I will be doing a review on the Sleek palettes that I have soon.
So here are the step-by-step instructions on how to get this look:
For this look, I wanted the shadow to show just a little bit when my eyes were open. So I opened my eyes and drew the outline with my eyeshadow pencil (Avon Arabian Glow Clearly Shadowed Eye Pencil in Turquoise), then filled it in.
Use the sponge applicator or a pencil brush to deliver a more intense wash of colour.
Lightly blend it into the matte turquoise colour, either with your finger or with a blending brush. Be careful not to blend too much, so that the turquoise colour doesn't get muddy.
Very lightly, blend it into the blue.
Take care with your blending, because the colours might spread a little too much, or blend into one another, creating a very 'muddy' effect.
Apply highlighter to the inner corners of the eyes, the brow and cheek bones, and the nose-bridge. My favourite highlighter is TheBalm Mary Lou-Manizer.
Slick on some lipstick and lipgloss, and you're done!
Here are pictures of the final look:
Happy Australia Day, everyone!
