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!

Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette

 

   

Sleek Solstice Highlight Palette review & swatches

Sleek Makeup has some awesome palettes with very reasonable prices and this palette is definitely one of them.

Solstice Highlighting palette contains four highlighters – three powders and one cream. It has cool and warm tones mixed together which is good. Sometimes I need a golden glow and other times I want a cool shimmer.

You may ask yourself: Do I really need a palette just for highlighting?


And the answer is of course!!!  not necessarily, but..

.. the packaging is gorgeous! Especially compared to Sleeks’s usual black packaging this looks luxurious and I love to just look at it. I guess it just makes me happy.

.. the colors work well as eye shadows too. So really you get four highlighters as well as four pretty shimmery eye shadows. I feel like they work best on the lid or in the inner corners. The creamy color, Ecliptic works as a creamy eye shadow base for a glittery shadow.

.. it’s long lasting. The colors are really pigmented so you don’t need to use a ton of it at once. It’s still not crazy pigmented as some highlighters are – so you don’t have to worry about getting white streaks on your face. Of course you can pack it on to make it really intense but the glitters are quite fine so it looks beautiful  on your face.

For 12,49€ it’s quite a deal! What do you think? Do you have this palette or some other highlighting palette?
