I posted my thoughts about the Sleek Storm Palette with my favourite look a while ago and I mentioned how I was reluctant to try the bold and darker colours. I realised I was barely using half the palette by not being adventurous, so I decided to try something a little different for me – blue eyeshadow – and show you how it turned out!
What I Used
I used only two colours from the palette which is great in terms of how easy and quick it was to put together. I used the blue that is 2nd from the bottom (see below) all over my lid and the darker blue which is 3rd from the top (see below) in the crease to smoke it out slightly. They are both shimmer shades but the navy blue shade is less so which made it a perfect darker colour for the crease. I have to admit, I really love how the Storm palette makes it super simple to put together an eye look. I feel like I see tonnes of YouTubers and bloggers who do amazing looks that require so much so just 2 colours was right up my street!
Like the last look, I waited around 2 hours until I took a photo to see how it lasted. This look actually had significantly better staying power than the pink look which was really surprising! And believe it or not, I actually loved it! I did do this look on a day where I felt pretty confident as it was something totally new for me but as much as I convinced myself that people would think I looked a little cuckoo, they didn’t (obviously!). I really liked how it turned our and I have worn it since a few times too so maybe it was worth stepping outside my comfort zone for once.
What do you guys think? Would you try a bold blue eye look?
