60’s Inspired Eye Makeup Tutorial using SLEEK make-up

posted by October 14, 2012 3 Comments

I’ve been in love with SLEEK makeup for over a few years now. I discovered them in Superdrug stores in the UK. Their eyeshadows are just as intense as M.A.C eyeshadows or even more. I recently stocked up on their palettes when my best friend from London came down. The eye palettes are priced at around £10 and under, and you get 12 pan sized eyeshadows in one palette. If that’s not a deal, I don’t know what is !?!

Stocking up on SLEEK palettes

As a little thank you to my friend that brought them down, I did her makeup for a night out.

This is an eye make-up tutorial on how to create a 60’s inspired look that’s more defined on the crease using just the limited edition palette in RESPECT.

Easy step by step 60’s inspired eye makeup tutorial

Use a dab of concealer all over the eyes to create an even base – blending it in with your fingers actually warms up the concealer so it doesn’t up too heavy on top of the eyelids.

2. With a flat eye brush I used Cameo Cream, a soft ivory shade, all over the eye lids.

3. Blend your eyeshadow with a crease brush all over

4. To give definition to the eye, I used a mix of Shalamar (soft brick brown shade) and New Jack Pink (pink undertone shade) at the corners of the crease with a thinner crease brush.

5. Keep on repeating this step in a windshield motion at the corners of the crease till you get the definition you want.

6. To add more depth I added a hint of Vandellas (a maroonish brown shade similar to Sketch from M.A.C) just at the corners of the crease.

7. Apply the eye liner all over the eye.

8. As soon as you reach the end of the eye, give it a 90degree flick.

9. Apply Glady’s White (pale white) just underneath the eyebrow bone and blend it in softly towards the crease.

10. You can use a full set of lashes for more drama, but I just used individual lashes from Ardell primarily towards the corner of the eye.

11. Brush your mascara in with the lashes. Wiggle your brush as you apply the mascara, this will help coat both your own lashes and the falsies together.

12. Use a pale beige or white pencil in the inner rim of the eye – this will open up the eyes and make them look bigger

13. To create more eye drama, using a slanted angle brush I lined the lower part of the eye with Roberta Black ( a black grey)

And there you have it !
