Charlotte, the Sanguine Empress

This is going to be the quickest and most excited blog post I've ever written. I am not going to proof read this, so you'll have to contend with even more mistakes than usual. 'What, what, what, will you say?'

Oh my, I wanted to do a retweet of this but I can't cos I am too excited and there are too many words which are coming swirling in my head. Since the release of the Sleek Makeup Bohemian Palette, there is this one look created by Charlotte from Lipglossiping which I have been trying to recreate and failed miserably. Now Charlotte was kind enough to recreate this look and made a picture tutorial for it. She had to go and get nappies from Spar with this outrageously bright but utterly gorgeous look. Please click on the picture below to enlarge, and forgive my botched watermarking.

Just look at the flamboyance of this and how it flatters her green eyes. Ladies and gentlemen, it is great honour, that I introduce to the 'Sanguine Emperor'. Why this name? Well to understand, you'll need to go over to her blog and get acquainted with the shades names, cos yeah baby, she found names for all the shades and Sleek Makeup loved them so much that they're going to adopt them.

 Now if you can count to 10 in French you should be able to do this :P

It's rubbish - boooooo! tell the girl to get some proper blending brushes! And pluck her eyebrows while she's at it!

You're very sweet to me, the cheque's in the post. I still can't understand why you struggled with it?! Is it a skintone thing? Do the colours look different on you? x

@lipglossiping Where do I start? I made a right mess of it, went too high with the colours, too much of it, could not blend it cos I had put too much. These colours are pigmented all right, and I forgot to leave space for hightlighting. Also I put too much on the waterline, I looked like a zombie racoon with it, I just could not get it right at all. With your help, I shall try again. Thank you xx
