Sand & Sea Eye Of The Day... using Sleek & Urban Decay

Hey guys, It's been too long since I've posted looks! Getting back into it with avengence now!

I was playing around with makeup earlier and this is basically what I came up with :) I live on an Island so spend most of my time down the beach! This is a look to remind me that summers just around the corner! Can get back to the beach soon, wohoo!

I first primed my eyes with Urban Decay Primer Potion and then added a light layer of NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk over my eyelid as a solid base for the eye shadows.

All the eye shadows I used were from Sleek's Ultra Matts V2 Palette which I LOVE! I love all of the Sleek palettes I have, the pigment and blendability of the colours are amazing and the price is fantastic! Totally worth it and great for beginners; You can get so many looks out of just one Palette!
I used Dune in the inner third of my eyelid and blended it into Orbit, which I used to cover the rest of my eyelid and also take it over the crease. To define the crease I used Ink and smoothed out the edges with Pillow Talk. This alone was a beautiful look but I added a little bit of shimmer by using SideCar from Urban Decay over the inner half of my eyelid.
I followed on the line of Orbit under my lower lash line just to finish the look off. To me, if there's no colour under the lower lash line, it just looks unfinished! I didn't go the whole length of my lash line though because it makes your eyes look closed off and a lot smaller. By stopping just under the pupil it will make your eyes look a lot bigger and brighter!
For eyeliner, I've done a double line and wing using 2 Gel Eyeliners from E.L.F. The first one I used was a turquoise blue with a slight gold shimmer in D20 (It doesn't say a name sorry) and the second with a navy blue called Midnight.
To finish it off I used MAC Plush Lash Mascara and Urban Decay, Perversion 24/7 Pencil Eyeliner just on my waterline.
I hope you like the look! Please let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. I like finding new blogs at the moment so if you've got one please send me a link!
Love & Peace x
