Festival Makeup Inspo 

If you'll be jamming out at a festival or two this summer, you may be in need of some makeup looks that are sure to make you stand out from the crowd (we don't do basic)

Last year it was all about the flower crowns, but this year its all about shimmer, gems, BOLD eyes and even bolder lips - It's time to be your festively fun self!  Even if you haven’t bagged yourself a ticket this year – you can still enjoy the festival vibes and enjoy all of the makeup-looks and trends that go with it...

I-divine : Acid. 

The perfect palette to create a bold festival makeup look is our I-divine Acid Pallet. It has mix of both matte and shimmery bright colours. You can create multiple looks for every type of festival, from Rainbow Eyes to *Galaxy Lips*.  

Look 1 - Rainbow Eyes.

Our Bae @heeycourtney used our Acid Palette to create this amazing asymmetric rainbow effect eye look, experiment with your favourite colours from the pallet to recreate this look. Forget about getting each eye perfect.

Look 2 - Cool Vibes.

You can also create a bold look by using different shades of one colour @xcaromua created this look by using the cooler colours in the Acid i-divine Palette.

 

Look 3 - Gem Princess.

We all love a good highlight but this season there is more than one way to glisten. We love how @andrearomanm used our i-divine Acid Palette  to create this glam tribal look and accessorised with gems above her brows.

Look 4 - Galaxy Lips.

After applying your fave Matte Me as a  base - add some depth with a layer of shimmer from our i-divine Acid Palette - like @shelingbeauty this look is pretty easy to accomplish and is easy to reapply and top up on the go.

 

*Top Tips* Be sure to use our Control Shine & Prime Primer  for mega lasting power - Creased eye-lids will be a thing of the past.

Party all weekend - Slay all summer long!

Distorted Dreams

Jun 12, 2017 11:55:56 AM

Distorted Dreams.

We shook the internet with Solstice and Cleopatra’s Kiss Highlighting palettes. Your fave bloggers, vloggers and Insta babes have sworn by them, and if you’ve got one - then you’ll know why. But now it’s time to introduce our brand new highlighting palette - Distorted Dreams. Get ready to step your glow game up...

Distorted Dreams creates an almost supernatural glow. The reflective, holographic pigments illuminates your skin creating a glow that is out of this world. The colours in this palette might just surprise you, watch the shades literally transform once you apply them by changing according to the tone of your skin. That means its custom to you, suited to you and made for you. We have carefully selected each shade to enable you (no matter your skin tone) to get creative with your highlighting.

Pffff, who says highlight is only for cheekbones and the cupids bow?  Highlight and illuminate your Lips, eyelids and body too. We all love to glow, but now it’s time to get glazed…

Here are some ways to slay using Distorted Dreams….  

Eyes & Lips – Add extra depth to your lips by mixing your fav highlighter from the palette with lip-gloss, @Cocoaama used clear lip gloss over Sweet Delusion to create this glassy galaxy look with Refracted in the centre of her lids.  

Cheeks - it time to introduce a new colour to your chees, we all love a Golden highlight but now its time to switch it up ! We loved how @Doras_touch used Anodize on her cheeks, the iridescent finish adds a pop of colour and is perfect for that extra glazed affect.

Complete the look with a bold lip using our new intensely pigmented and brand new Metallic Matte Me

Makeup Spring Clean

May 30, 2017 4:35:16 PM

Makeup Spring Clean. 

Shout out to all the makeup I haven't bought yet. I'm comin' for yahh...

Mascara.

Lets admit it, We all have that one never ending tube of Mascara that we just don’t want to let go of.The expiration date of mascara is actually 3 months. After that,  your Mascara is more likely to breed bacteria. We all know what is like trying to brush through your lashes with a clumpy Mascara brush… Babe you need to bin it. For maximum volume and definition replace your old mascara with our I'm Conditional Masacara.

Liquid Eyeliner.

So, you’ve finished your eye shadow and now it’s time to get those wings on fleek, but your fave liquid eyeliner is dry AF. If your eyeliner is drying up, it could be past the expiration date (liquid eyeliner actually has an expiration date of six months once opened). So have a look through your collection and get rid of those that are dull and dry. But if your eyeliner collection is on point, there’s always room for more Eyeliner.

Lip Gloss.

With a shelf life of 1.5, Lip gloss can actually last a pretty long time before it’s time to let it go. For those of us that love to glaze our lips we defo have no problem making use of our product before this. But there is always that one tube in our makeup collection that gets shown no love. We live for gloss that make our  lips look like a Krispy Kreme doughnut ! But after a year or so, lip gloss can become a clumpy and dull. So, replace your old gloss with Gloss Me.

Lipstick.

Lipstick obsession is real. You literally can never have enough. If you’re lipstick hoarder, it might just be that time to sort through all of your shades. Have a look at some of the expiration dates on your collection- and if you’ve had any for more than two years, it’s time to say bye-bye. Sad to see them go? No worries, replacing them is the fun part. We have 51 shades of lipstick to choose from – yes, Fifty One Shades. And really, what better way is there to reward yourself finishing your spring cleaning chores than with a fresh tube of lipstick? Shop Lipstick!

3 Ways to look LIT AF.

Let's be honest, you can never have too many Highlighters! The Barekissed Illuminator is defo one of our *hidden gems*, that can be used in so many ways to take your glow to another level this season…

2.Upgrade your base like a boss! Add gorgeous light-reflecting pigments to your look by mixing the Barekissed Illuminator with your foundation or use as a second layer to create a real life dewy filter.

3. Apply to your cheeks, cupid's bow and brow arches and blend accordingly for a subtle glow.

Complete the look.

Eyebrow Stylist - Our Eyebrow Stylist is a staple for your makeup-bag. The calligraphy tip achieves tailor-made strokes from thin to thick for outlining and filling, while the creamy formula is matte and velvety smooth for a natural look that lasts.

Face Contour Kit - Whilst our Cream Contour Kit is LOVED by all, our Face Contour kit is still one of our most iconic products and a fave on our Instagram (@sleekmakeup). The contour powder is all you need to define your cheekbones and the highlighter is perfect for adding some shimmer.

Matte Me

Mar 23, 2017 10:14:09 AM

Matte Me.

You know the trend, matte lips are everywhere - and we live for it. That’s why we’ve extended our range with 3 new colours for spring…. Say hello to French Fancy, Apricot Blooms and Crushed Lavender.

A matte lip can go really right… or really left. So, here are some tips to make sure you're lip game stays strong.

Be BOLD - Lay it on thick and let the colour pop

Be Subtle - Apply lightly for a long lasting lip stain effect

Be Creative - Pair it with our highlighting palette for dimension 

Bold - Nothing says confidence more than a bold lip. Go big or go home and create a perfect look bold lip. Apply our Matte Me with precision using the applicator provided layering colour and intensity as you go. #GoBigGoHome



SubtleMatte Me has crazy lasting power, so it also works well as a lip stain. Apply a small amount in the centre of your lip – then spread the formula out using your finger tips for light and even coverage. #IWokeUpLikeThis



Ombre – Add dimension to your lips by pairing matte me with a highlighter and lip liner

1.Start by using a lip liner as a base to fill out your lips (use a shade darker that your chosen matte me colour)

2. Apply matte me to the centre of your lips using your finger or a brush – blend the formula into the base to create an ombre effect.

3. Add a highlight to your cupids bow to complete your look.


How to use Matte Me.

Always make sure you moisturise your lips before using a matte me as the effect of the product is to dry quickly and this helps with an even coating. After applying, part your lips and gently blot using a tissue to remove any excess.

How to remove.

Apply an oil based make up remover or olive oil over your matte me lip colour then remove with a cotton pad. Oil based products work great as they moisturise your lips whilst breaking down the formula for quick and easy removal.

Contouring Do's & Dont's

Feb 22, 2017 2:06:29 PM


Contouring Do's

1. DO Use the right colour for you. Yes, when highlighting you should use lighter concealer but only 1 or 2 shades lighter. Same with the darker shade for contouring. Not sure what shade to use? We’ve got you - we have 4 different kits with 6 different shades in each. So finding a shade close to your natural skin tone is easy.

2. DO  Blend blend blend! Hard lines are not cute and will make you look too patchy. Our Cream Contour Kit is soft and creamy – so using a beauty blender or even your fingers to blend will really help smooth it into your skin for a natural finish.

3. DO  Bake! We all long for that makeup look that lasts all day or night. Baking your highlight is key when using creamy products. Use our Professional Finishing Powder to eliminate major creases and set your highlight in place.

Top Tip  *The Flash Test* -  Once you're all done, take a selfie with a flash. What you can't see in the mirror comes to light in a photo. #NoFilter. Oh and don’t forget to tag us @sleekmakup and #sleekmakeup with your results!

 

Contouring Don'ts

1. DON’T Over use product.  As you’ll be using different shades and tones on your skin, you want to make sure you create a seamless transition into each colour. Our Cream Contour Kit is creamy and highly pigmented - so a little really does go a long way, giving harsh lines zero chance!

2.DON’T Try to change your natural features. Contouring is a great way to enhance your natural features and not to be used as an extreme non-surgical face lift! Your contour should look effortless and flawless. So work with what you have, follow the natural lines of your face and find a routine that is custom to you!

Top Tip - Contour for the occasion! It’s very easy to achieve a subtle contour for your everyday look so save the maximum slayage and pull out all the stops for nights out and special events.
