My, my, my! This week has been really challenging for me, probably the most challenging episode of my Sleek Saturday Series so far. Please, please, stay with me till the end of this post to see who else have joined in the Sleek Saturdays Series this week :)
This week, Helen and Ellie have challenged me to use my Sleek Makeup Palette. The Sunset Palette is a truly gorgeous palette but it contains mainly shimmery shadows apart from the black. As I don’t wear shimmery eyeshadow in the crease of my eye and beyond the crease, it was mission impossible straight from the start. Or was it?
I had 2 options: give up totally the challenge and use another Sleek makeup palette or cheat a little bit and add an eyeshadow from another Sleek palette. I have got pride and I hate giving up things, soooo I was left with no other option than to incorporate a little bit of brown. This series has taught me a lot and I’ll probably will want to get rid of this palette afterwards as it has proven too difficult for me to use.
Without further ado, my predictable look:
And now for the full face, obviously not happy with my look, for having cheated this week:
Do you feel this look is representative of the Sleek Sunset Palette?
Something is missing, don’t you think? Let’s add a bit of blue.
As I don’t really like blue on my lower lashline or waterline, how about blue … eyebrows?
Shall we go ahead with that and have a bit of fun?
Nah, this is not working. This blue shadow is not ‘popping out’ as bright as I wanted to. Introducing my trusted Ben Nye face paint (will blog about this someday as I loooove it) since this week is a fail and I’ve cheated already :(
OK. I think this is QUITE blue enough! It was fun playing with my eyebrows. Sadly this palette is not doing it for me, as it predominantly shimmery.
Ladies and gentlemen, give a big hand to the sleekettes for this week.

I am so so so sorry to have run out of time for the faces-in-the-sleek-pans feature :/
I lost the files for the pictures I had already prepared and now I am running of time to post this on time. I’ll do better next week. My god, I am a disappointment this week!
