Sleek Mistletoe & Tinsel eyes

Friday, 24 December 2010

Here's another Christmassy look that involves using the festive Sleek "Sparkle" palette; its a smoked out look using "Tinsel" (shimmery silver eyeshadow) and "Mistletoe" (shimmery dark green with microglitter sparkle). To be honest, any colour from the palette would suit this look but obviously being the day before Christmas, I chose Mistletoe.

Products used:

> Sleek Sparkle palette - "tinsel" & "mistletoe"
> Sleek Good Girl palette - "raspberry coulis"
> UD 24/7 eyeliner - "zero" & "covet"
> Dior Show mascara in black
> Barry M lip lacquer in No. 1

After applying primer to the whole eye, I started by using Tinsel on the brow bone and shading down a little. I then used the No. 7 blend & contour eyeshadow brush to put Mistletoe all over the eyelid, and blend upwards into the Tinsel, winging it out at the outer corner of the eyes. I then went and added some more Tinsel to the browbone and blended it down some more as the Mistletoe was very dark.
I then lined the eye with Covet, both top and bottom, followed by Zero on the inner waterline of top and bottom lashlines. After applying concealer under the eyes, I finished with Dior Show mascara, using zigzag motions.

For the cheeks I used Raspberry Coulis of the Good Girl palette again, with red Barry M lip lacquer on the lips. I've paired green eyes with red lips for all my Christmas looks but what can I say?! They're the festive colours!


Hope you like it and for those celebrating, have a great Christmas! 



  1. LOVE the smoky eyes + red lip combo.... it shouldn't work but totally does!

  2. Super pretty! I love smokey eyes!

  3. Gorgeous! Happy holidays too! ♥

  4. This is such a great shade of red. Do barry m lip thingies have a gross taste to them?

  5. Gorgeous look! Merry Christmas, doll :) Hope you have a lovely day!

  6. Thanks all!
    And Gone2rehabBRB- the lip lacquer doesnt taste of anything, but the cherry lip gloss smells strongly of cherry (and the other glosses smell accordingly to their name too). I do like the lip lacquers though, beautiful rich colour!

  7. You are gorgeous! You could probaby color with crayons on your face and still look gorgeous.

  8. Very nicely done! You're looking great!


I'd love for you to leave me some comments.. they make me happy!
