Somewhere Over the Rainbow


In November of last year Sleek Makeup had a 50% off sale. I was super excited to hear about it, because I had been looking at reviews and swatches on the internet for months. I had no idea how popular this sale would be! I woke up at 6 a.m. turned my computer on, ready to go! It took me a couple of days before I could finally put my order through. Their server was so overwhelmed, that it could not handle the volume of customers that were trying to order. So, finally after a little over a month I received my order...phew!!




Face: MUFE matte velvet + 70. MAC loose powder nc40. MAC mineralize skinfinish medium deep. MAC studio finish concealer nw40 and nw30.


Eyes: I applied bamboom paint on the entire lid with my ring finger. I carved out the crease with MAC coffee eye pencil. I blended out the pencil with the Billy B. Beauty #9 brush. I applied NYX jumbo pencil in milk on the lid and blended it out with my finger. I then applied the hot pink color from the Sleek Acid palette, starting from the carved lined upward using the Stila #7 brush. I made sure not to go below the line, because I wanted that sharp line to remain. I turned my brush on the flat side, placed it on the line and made upward strokes almost to the brow bone. I then applied the purple color from the carved line upward and just below where I applied the hot pink using the Stila #7 brush.


On the lid I packed on the lime green color using the 239 brush. In the tear duct I used the 228 brush to apply the neon yellow. I deepened the carved line with the black in the palette using the 263 brush. I applied vanilla pigment on the brow bone with the Stila #7 brush. I applied blacktrack fluidline on the upper lash line using the 263 brush. I applied Urban Decay zero eyeliner in the waterline. I applied the shimmery blue from the palette to the lower lash line using the 263 brush. The lashes I used were I Envy by Kiss juicy volume 3. I bought them at the hair supply store.


Cheeks: I applied Ben Nye contour wheel in the hollows of my cheeks using the 252 brush. I blended it up and out with my fingers. I then applied the Sleek dark contour kit over it using the 169 brush(d/c). For cheek color I dabbed my brush into dollymix, breezy, and loverush blushes and applied them to my cheeks using the 169 brush(d/c). Just a dab of each color was all I used. I used the highlight color from the Sleek palette on the apples of my cheeks and cheekbones using the 169 brush(d/c).

Lips: MAC petite indulgence cremesheen glass.
