3 x makeup with Sleek A New Day Palette

In my lookfantastic calendar (which was awesome, by the way!) I got *Sleek’s A New Day palette. I already have two other Sleek eyeshadow palettes so I knew what to expect from their makeup. Basically Sleek’s palettes are very inexpensive and good. The price-ratio quality is on point. The palettes come with a mirror, but otherwise are pretty plain.

Sleek A New Day Palette

This palette is a nice every day palette with warm and cool neutral tones. It has a few interesting shades like a light shimmer color with a hint of lime green (the first color), a beautiful cool-toned rose gold color (the second color) and your basic gold shimmer (third on the bottom row).

I challenged myself to use the palette three days in a row and create different makeup looks with it. These looks ended up being quite my everyday looks. It’s no wonder, since the palette is perfect for simple looks.

Makeup 1: Soft & Shimmery

The first look: as simple as it gets! I contoured my eye according to my own tips about deep set/hooded eyes and brought lots of light to my lid with light shimmer colors. I also used the cool lime shimmer color, not sure if you can see it? It’s a very subtle green hue.

I used to never do eyeliner, but ever since I got the mellow cosmetics Precision Pen Eyeliner, I’ve been doing it more. I guess I just needed to find the perfect eyeliner first.

My skin base was done with Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation*, which I’ve been using non stop ever since I got in November. Mascara is *essence Lash Princess Mascara.

Makeup 2: Cool tones

My own sister didn’t recognize me at first with this look. I tried something new with my hair and I like it! A sleek low bun is a nice change to my usual curly crazy hair.

The eye look is basically this look, which I have a tutorial for. It’s all about definition and cool tones, though nowadays I prefer warmer colors.

On my lips I have *NYX Butter gloss in Crème Brulee. It smells delicious. The base is done with Lily Lolo foundation* and mascara is *essence Lash Princess Mascara.

Makeup 3: Warm copper

Warm copper really brings out the blue in my eyes! I love a messy look like this. The gold color is actually darker in real life and looked more like a smokey eye.

On my lips I have jane iredale Lip Fixation, Content. Base is Lily Lolo’s foundation and mascara is essence’s Princess Lash.

Summer makeup | Charlotta Eve x Rouge ‘N Apples

This post is a collaboration between me and another blogger – gorgeous Eleni from Rouge ‘N Apples.

I first got to know this beautiful fellow blogger on Instagram. I loved her photos and the positive attitude, that somehow comes through the posts. I then found her blog, which is as lovely. Eleni writes a beauty blog, which has great in-depth reviews of beautiful products. I’m always drooling over the beautiful luxury products she has! She’s a Greek living in London and I love to read about her travels as well. We share the love for sea as well as makeup.

It would be cool, if you could show some love for Eleni on her blog and on her Instagram.

We came up with the idea of choosing a summer makeup look for each other and then creating it. This is my look, designed by Eleni. It was cool to see what she would pick for me and I love this bronzy look, which is very Eleni by the way.  The pink lips and cheeks are a nice contrast to this otherwise very dark smokey eye. I wasn’t sure if I went overboard with the smokey eye, but then again, that’s just typical me.

I had a bit of trouble to make the photos look summery, because this Monday turned out to be rainy and grey. But hey, throw a sun hat on and it’s like I’m at the beach, no?

If you want to see what I chose for Eleni’s makeup, go read her post about the summer look designed by yours truly. I can reveal, that I did challenge her a bit with colors!
