How to: use the new Sleek Aqua Palette

Yesterday, I posted about the beautiful new palette from Sleek's Aqua Collection , which you can read here. I knew as soon as I saw the press release for this collection I knew that the Lagoon palette would be mine! When I bought it a few days ago, I didn't even think about how I would wear it. The shades aren't particularly what you would call wearable, so today I have come up with a look that I created super quickly that I think is quite wearable. 

*on a sidenote, because the colours are quite shimmery so they are quite hard to photography but this is the best one I could get* 

The colours that I used for this look were Sassea and Emerald on the lid and Deep Water blended into the crease. Then on the lower lashline I applied a mixture of Sand Dollar and Seashell, with a tiny, tiny bit of Oyster placed in the inner corner. The first time I tried this look the pigmentation was amazing, but wasn't as bright as I would have liked. To combat this, I applied a little of NYX jumbo eye pencil in Milk and the shadows applied so much brighter.
I really liked this look with no liner and just mascara, but I felt strange not having any liner on so I just popped on a slick of my favourite liquid liner which is Rimmel Glam Eyes in Black Glamour.

I think that this is a really wearable way to add a splash of colour to your makeup look. Especially if you're like me and are stuck in a neutrals rut. This is definitely going to be my go to look throughout spring and summer.

I'd love to see the looks that you're going to be rocking this spring/summer :)


  1. Love this look xx

  2. I saw this palette the other day at Superdrug. I liked it at first but I didn't pick it up since I had absolutely no idea how to wear such bright colours!! I really like this look though so I may give it another try :-P
