It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow and my feed has been filled with pre-V Day celebrations from the people I follow. Though I am not a huge fan of V Day–because I believe cheesiness and love should be celebrated spontaneously, still I created a V Day look because Sleek makeup sent me some of their products to try. 😉
Sleek Face Form Contouring & Blush Palette, Light Php 875
Face Form is a three-in-one palette that consists of a contour powder, highlighter and bronzer.
The palette to contour & highlight. If you don’t like bringing too much products with you go for palettes! As seen on the swatches, the contour powder is matte while the highlighter & bronzer provides shimmer. The trick is to blend these three evenly by making sure there is no visible hard line (when you see it, it means you should blend some more) for it to look as natural as possible.
top from bottom: Sphinx, Delta, Dynasty, Goddess
Despite it being a highlighting palette you can see how each has a distinct shade that compliments all skintones. You can use them to highlight the inner corner of your eye, brow bone, nose bridge, cupid’s bow, and the top of your cheekbone. You can also apply it on your shoulders, top of your arms and across your décolletage for that added radiance.
Sleek True Colour Lipstick, Russian Roulette Php 435
It’s smooth, creamy formula glides easily. For a matte lippie, I like that it’s moisturising.
Here’s what two swipes of Russian Roulette looks like. It’s really pigmented and for a matte lippie, I like how it feels light on my lips.
What I used on my face:
MAC Studio Fix Powder NC40 as base.
I didn’t apply foundation na that’s why you can see the tiny bumps on my face caused by stress. Also didn’t put concealer for my eyebags kaya please be nice. Hahahuhu. 😀
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil in 04 and K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Mascara in Natural Brown 102 for my brows.
I outlined my brows with Benefit Goof Proof pencil and set it with K-Palette Eyebrow Mascara for that perfectly defined brows.
Sleek Face Form Contouring & Blush Palette to contour and highlight my face.
I used the contour powder to define my cheeks and nose. To know how to contour and highlight depending on the shape of your face read HERE.
Sleek Highlighting Palette for my eyes.
I used the palette on my eyes as eyeshadow. I used Dynasty as base an layered Goddess, Sphinx and Delta to create dimension. And since already have big eyes, I didn’t highlight na the corner of my eyes but I did highlight my brow bone using Dynasty shade.
Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Russian Roulette on my lips.
I am not a fan of red lipstick for I find it too bold but figured V Day is the best day to wear it! I love Sleek’s True Color lipstick because it’s non-drying yet gives that lovely matte finish.
Dusted my face with Laura Mercier loose powder to seal my makeup. 🙂
So here’s my V Day look. I prefer toning down my eye makeup whenever I wear a bold colored lipstick. For me balance is necessary even with makeup so I don’t often go for bold eyes, bold face look. Notice how I didn’t even put eyeliner? T’s because I didn’t want my eyes to come out too strong since I want the focus to be on my lips. 🙂
What do you guys think? 🙂
Shoutout to Browhaus for my lashes. I did the lash curl treatment and I haven’t been curling my lashes for three weeks now. Best part? I can still put mascara. Yay! You can check Browhaus offerings over at Sample Room.
