Sleek Eye Dust in Jet Set// FOTD & new hair!

Hey beauties!
As I've mentioned previously, I've changed my hair colour, I have gone darker & more in the violet family rather than red, and I think now my makeup options have been opened up to something entirely better. Not that it mattered to me before about how my eyeshadow/lipstick/blush colours looked against my hair before, but now certain things look a whole lot different. For instance, this bright blue eyeshadow never stood out this much to me on my eyes before. I have also worn red lips and I <3 it a lot more now!




 ..Come & find me dancing all alone, to the sound of an enemy's song, I'll be lost until, you find me, fighting on my own...

 ~Products
Face: Base: Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation; Physicians Formula Gentle Cover Concealer Stick; Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles; Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Highlight/ Contour: MAC CCB Pearl; MAC Lightscapade; Nars Laguna
Blush: Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso
Eyes: NYX E/S Base in White, Sleek Eye Dust in Jet Set [All over lid, lower lash line]; NYX Chrome E/S in Pearl White [Applied wet to center of lid, highlight]; UD Naked- Naked [Failed to blend out crease lol, didn't want it overly blended anyway]
Maybelline Master Precise Eyeliner [top lashline]; Sleek Gel liner [waterline]; Bourjois Kohl & Contour pencil e/l in 72 [to apply gel liner]; Maybelline The Falsies & One By One mascara. NYX Cake Brow Powder in Dark Brown/ Brown.
Lips: MAC Myth, Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart [Myth is a bit... IDK.. stark on me so I like to apply the lighter pink on top to add a bit of colour].
A proper pic of the hair;I had an inch taken off the ends & more of the layers so it sits 100x better now, and feels much more healthier!
So here is a comparison of Sleeks Eye Dust in Jet Set compared to Sugarpill's Darling. Although the lighting is different, and I definitely used a white base under Jet Set and a white shimmer on top, when I'm unsure about Darling, but JS looks way more vibrant & has a foiled effect. So I'm glad I bought it even though they are still similar!

L-R: Sleek, Sugarpill
So of course while I still have heaps of older FOTD's lined up, you probably wont see this hair for a while haha. But I am just so in love I had to post it earlier ;) I hope you like this bright teal eye makeup, one of my fave colours to wear on the eyes for sure!

Would you wear this teal colour?

  1. The eyeshadow is incredibly pigmented and looks great on you. Really makes your eyes pop. I love your new hair color as well. I'll have to agree with you, dark hair seems to make any makeup look good for some reason.

  5. They're both so gorgeous but because of the unavailability of sleek in the US, I think I'm leaning towards Sugarpill.. *sigh* You look absolutely amazing with bright teal!! And I love your new hair - I liked the auburn but you can definitely pull this off as well :3 xx

  17. I LOVE your hair! The colour is so flattering! I love how the colour goes with your skin! I'd definitely love to wear that teal colour! Unfortunately the place where I buy Sleek here doesn't sell those pigments, but I'd love to try them! That blush looks amazing on you! And i DEFINITELY agree about Myth :( Have to wear it with some liner or mixed... Can't wait to see more looks with your new hair =)

    1. Awe thank you so much girly for your lovely comment. That's a shame, you probably have similar colours anyway, though! & I'm glad you think so about the blush, I'm never sure if it looks nice or not lol. Glad to know I'm not the only one with that problem with Myth! xx
