Happy Monday loves, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
Today I wanted to share how I created this super easy Fall inspired look using some new favourites from Sleek Makeup. I recently went to the launch of their new Lifeproof foundation and so many of you requested a review/first impressions so I thought why not create a full face, which is a great way of using some other new bits from Sleek that I have.
I love nudes, plums and golds for Autumn so those are mainly the colours I will be using in this pretty simple look I created for you. Starting with the base, I firstly applied Sleek Hydrating Primer* to event out my skin tone, it’s a lightweight non-greasy formula that is perfect for giving your skin that extra bit of moisture as this time of year the wind can be quite harsh and drying on the skin.
Following up with Sleek Lifeproof Foundation* (shade LP05) I really like the formula, it gives a medium to full coverage without looking cakey or feeling heavy, I like to apply it with the beauty blender for a more natural finish. This foundation really does perfect your skin, it feels comfortable on and I do like the finish, it’s more of a semi-matte, which I like. It’s sweat proof as well and I did not get much of a shine throughout the day when I wore it and that was a pretty long and busy day. I would say I wore it for about six hours and it lasted pretty well, so big thumbs up!
I didn’t have a bronzer from Sleek, so I just used my regular one which is Hoola by Benefit to add a subtle contour to my face and then my favourite part – the highlighter 🙂 I used Sleek Highlighting Palette* in Solstice, which is new to me and I absolutely love it. It comes in a beautiful gold compact and you get 4 shades (1 cream and 3 powders) I used the gold and champagne shade for this look. I applied some on my cheekbones, nose, brow bone and inner corner of the eye. I didn’t use any eyeshadow just highlighter and a bit of bronzer to warm up the crease. Quick and simple but still very pretty and autumnal.
Finish the eyes by applying a couple of coats of mascara and some falsies (optional) I used Ardell Demi Pixies* which I absolutely love at the moment. Blend the lashes with a bit of black liner and run a little eye brush on it to smudge it, it looks a lot more natural that way as I’m not very keen on the bold cat eye look for everyday.
For the brows I used Sleek Brow Intensity* which is a double-ended Brow Sculptor and highlighter. Comes with a little spolie to brush through the brows and fill in any gaps. I like it because it gives a more natural look, rather than the bold insta brow 🙂
Finish off by applying some lippie, I used Sleek Matte Me Ultra Smooth lip cream* in ‘Shabby Chic’ which is a gorgeous brown/plum shade perfect for Fall. I’m not normally too keen on the matte lip but I really like these as they are not too drying and also come off really easy, unlike some other matte liquid lipsticks that you have to literally scrub off your face.
