Using Sleek's Monaco Palette - Cranberry and Lime

Yesterday I put together another look using Sleek's Monaco Palette. This one took a bit of time to get looking right, it didn't start out very well but I stuckwith it and it worked in the end. I have liked using a contrasting colour along my lower lash line so did that here too. It also worked quite nicely with my hair colour at the moment which is much redder than it appears in the photos, going towards the cranberry shade on my eyes.

Heres what I did. I applied Washed Ashore (matte peach) over my whole lid then applied Sunset (shimmery coppery cranberry) through the crease with a 222 brush to get very soft difused shading as it faded out. I used Moors Treasure (matte plum) with a pencil brush right in the crease to add definition. Then I went back with the 222 to soften and blend into the cranberry. I added some Moors Treasure onto the outer part of my lids too and blended into the peach. I used Bamboo under my brows to sharpen the edges and blend into the other shades. Bamboo doesn't show up much on me but it works very well at neutralising redness and discolouration or blending together colours. Finally I used Kiwi Zest along my lower lash line. I didn't want a highlight colour as I felt I had quite a bit going on with the shimmery cranberry and lime.

  1. Oooh loving all these looks your creating with monaco! :) xx

  2. I need some Sleek... *sigh*. I don't know how it started out, as you say, but it sure looks pretty :)

  3. Thanks Y! If you can get hold of one of their new palettes (or both!) you should, they are really worth it and are inexpensive. I'm interested in their new lip polish things which are similar to OCC Lip Tars, they could be fun.

  4. wow absolutely love the coppery colour youve created by mixing the colours on the lid, and I would never have thought of contrasting that with the kiwi colour on the lower lash line, very nice! x

  5. Thanks Rachy, glad you liked it :)
