Neutral with a Twist

I joined Twitter on Friday (come and follow me @Super_Gorgeous), where one of my fellow bloggers, Modesty Brown was involved in a conversation with a few other bloggers saying that they would all post a picture at 9pm on Saturday night of a neutral eye with a twist. Kenneth Soh mentioned purple and bronze, and with that, I was inspired! I hadn’t even realised it until I was getting ready to go out for the evening and deciding what make up to wear, it popped into my head.

I know I’ve not had all that good things to say about The Original Sleek palette, but I actually rather like it now. It’s a great way to try out colours you want to play around with before buying a high-end brand.

I should mention I did have a bit of MAC Sable still left on my eyes that I’d been wearing during the day.

First I swept the lid with the purple from The Original Sleek palette, then patted a bit of the gold to the middle third of my eyelid. I then used a light shimmery pink (shade 09) by Paul & Joe in the inner corner of my eye using a thin brush.

I used the same brush to take a small amount of the purple under the outer part of my lower lash line. I used a blending brush and dusted some of the dark brown Sleek colour into the crease of my eye, then adding some of the black, lightly went over the outer V.

I then lightly swept all over the colour with the pinky gold Sleek colour.

I applied Smoulder kohl liner by MAC to the upper lid, then using a wet eyeliner brush, some of the purple Sleek colour over the top. I finished off by lighty lining under my lower lash, and then applying MAC Zoomlash mascara in Lofty Brown.

Thank you for the inspiration guys, this is something I probably wouldn’t have tried if it wasn’t for your Tweets!

    Pretty, very nicely applied.. What did you wear on your lips with such a strong eye?

    Thank you honey. I went with Hue – I know you said today you find it so like concealer, but I find it nicely glaze-like! I think I had Hue on with a bit of the pale pink Revlon gloss, you know the one I mean, you have it too!
