I hope you are all well! I'm so glad Monday is over, it's always the hardest day of the week.
As promised, I have an EOTD post to show you today, using the Sleek Makeup Snapshots Palette. I asked in a previous post showcasing this palette if there were any shades you wanted me to use specifically, and most of the votes were for the orange shadows! Someone very special to me was quite specific and requested a look with all three (Washed Ashore, Sunset and Tequila Sunrise), so I decided to do an EOTD post with these shades, but with a slight twist - I did two looks! One is more of a day look and the other is a little more out there, so it's better suited for wearing at night.
First up, the day look. I did this using Washed Ashore in the inner eye corner, Tequila Sunrise over the outer corner and blended Sunset through the crease. I must say Washed Ashore is really subtle, it all but disappeared on me. All shadows were applied over Urban Decay Primer Potion. I also used my trusty Maybelline Master Precise Eyeliner and Max Factor False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara.
Next up, the night look! I thought it would be fun to go all out and dramatize it a little. I went a bit heavier with Sunset in the crease and winged it out a little, and then blended some under my lower lashline with a fine brush (I used the accent brush from the Real Techniques range, reviewed here). I also dipped my brush in Purple Haze and blended that along the outer corners and crease to darken the look up and for added drama. I also dipped a fine, eyeliner brush in Purple Haze and traced over my black liner from the day look, and also added a little just below the lower lashline to approximately halfway along the lower lashline (just above the blending I did with Sunset).
To finish, I filled in the brows lightly with black shadow, and then added some Harlotte half lashes in Drama Queen. I do apologise for the wonky application, it's been a while since I used false lashes and I couldn't find my trusty applicator (which I reviewed here), so I had to freehand it. Typically, one eye always applies really perfectly while the other is just a nightmare to deal with.
Both looks were a little bit more vivid in real life and I actually ended up wearing the second look out to dinner.
I'm really pleased with this palette. I think that it's versatile enough to be used for day and night wear, and I can't wait to experiment more with it! Click here for a more through review of the palette.
I really hope you enjoyed the looks, lovelies. I believe someone had requested a look with Magenta Madness so that's next on the list!
