Graphite Treasure

Lately my Sleek eyeshadow palette’s have been getting more attention, I guess it’s because I’ve recently ordered the Darks palette and it got me in the mood for Sleek. I did’t have Darks in my posession when I wrote his blogpost but I couldn’t wait to get to work with those amazing matte eyeshadows.
I think there are a lot of matte eyeshadows out there but there are only few brands that are this cheap and still deliver this kind of great quality. So yay for Sleek!!

Anyway, I was wearing this grey Alice In wonderland shirt and I wanted to do something grey with red because of the print. It turned out way more red than I had in mind, lol.

Every time I use the Grpahite palette from Sleek, I can’t resist and just really want to use that purple eyeshadow that’s in it. So I used that as a detail under the eye. I’ve always liked the combination of red and purple. 😀

I also used a pinkish red lipstick because I wanted it to match the eyeshadow in the crease. I used a colour that I usually skip in my drawer, Burgundy from Catrice. It’s very pretty but a lot of times it just doesn’t suit a look I’m wearing.

I’m getting more and more used to pink and red eyeshadows in the crease. I ordered Love+ from Sugarpill because it’s the most beautiful red I’ve seen online so far so I’m going to have a lot of fun with that one.

Do you wear a lot of red or pink eyeshadow and with what colours do you like to combine it? And what do you think of this look? Please let me know in the comments!

    I love the pinks and use them a lot, but then I am blonde and a lot fairer. But this is a wonderful pop of deep pinky red I definitely would do!
