Look: Summer In September - Sun & Sea With Sleek Curacao Eyeshadow Palette

Oh well, I am sure this combo of colours is nothing new. But yesterday it was so hot and sunny that I decided to bring out my beloved Sleek Caribbean Collection Curacao eyeshadow palette again to create a look. I knew I so wanted to use the orange eyeshadow in the palette, called Tequila Sunrise.

So here you are............

Eye Of The Day

Start by applying Screwdriver (a bright yellow colour, but not so yellow on my lids) on the lid from the inner corner to the middle 2/3;
Then apply Tequila Sunrise (a shimmery orange colour) on the outer corner in a circular motion and blend with the yellow, and into the crease;
Highlight the area below the brow with Martini ( a shimmery pale white colour), and blend it with the yellow and orange; dab a little Martini onto the inner corners of the eyes as well;
Use a small eyeliner brush to deposit Blue Lagoon (a bright sky blue colour) onto the lower lids;
Then finish off by applying Laneige mascara from the Mascara & Liner Duo.

Espresso Martini from the Sleek Curacao palette which is a matte black colour

Some stories on this look............

Princess commented when she saw this look, "hmmm, Mummy, the orange and the yellow eyeshadow is not quite enough. May be next time put more colours on your eyelids!" Yes, I quoted her word for word! :D

And Hubby saw this Curacao eyeshadow palette, and he was marvelling at how pretty, and bright and colourful it was! Wow! Rarely Hubby would comment on any of my makeup toys, but if this caught his attention, then it surely MUST be something! And it is certainly IS!! :)

How has your hump day been? Fret not, it will be Friday's eve tomorrow.... :D

Thank you, Vijiis! That's a very pretty and bright orange. And using it in the outer corner and crease can really brighten up the look.
