EOTD: Sleek Acid Blue & Magenta...

Another look from the Sleek Acid palette - my brain is just busting with ideas for future EOTD's. I'm kinda wishing I had another pair of eyes, or at least another couple of days in the week to make them all a reality! It's almost torture trying to decide which combo to do next...


This one was particularly interesting because I combined the shimmery blue with the matte magenta (this shade was especially chosen for neurotichellfem ). Actually it looked a little unbalanced at first because of the different finishes, so I gently swiped the blue over the top of the pink to give it a bit of dimension, and that made all the difference... 


As usual, the base was essence white kajal - when I first try out a palette, I tend to lay down the shadows over this white crayon so that I can see exactly what the pigmentation is like. Later on, I'll use different coloured bases once I get into experimentation mode...


I added a wee bit of Ink from the Sleek V2 Matte palette into the crease - using mattes here helps stop the shimmery shades from transfering to my hoods, and ties everything together...


For the waterline, I used bhcosmetics Waterpoof Eye Liner crayon in the shade Midnight...


Lips are MUA Matte lipstick in Lilac Belle, and over the top I slicked MNY Color Sensational Color Elixir in Petal Plush. Cheeks are bhcosmetics Lilac Blush Duo...


Can you guess what colours I'll be using next from this gorgeous palette?

Take care of you,
