Go Little Bad Girl

Evening everyone! I have decided to attempt to be more creative with my eyeshadow, as it is something i have always struggled with and would love to be really good at! When it comes to eyeliner, i have absolutly no problem at all. My everyday look is black winged liquid eyeliner, and for a dressier look i just add a soft black kohl eyeliner underneath my eyes and smudge it for a smoky feline look. Simples.

However i always get really jealous of people who have gorgeous colourful eyeshadow that is blended perfectly and i want to know how they do it! So in my experimentation with something other than black eyeliner, i was recommended to try some of the eyeshadows from the Sleek make-up range sold at Superdrug.

I chose the Bad Girl palette not just because it is a limited edition palette, but because the colours are simply my kind of style and taste; rock chick!

I love the names they have given for each eyeshadow; intoxicated, rebel, abyss are just to name a few. The fact that it comes with a double-ended sponge applicator and a mirror in the lid as well as 12 gorgeous shades of eyeshadow all for £6.49, i think is what you call value for money!

And here comes the tricky part for me...applying the eyeshadow. I used the provided applicator and chose to blend one of the silvers with one of the blue and black eyeshadows. I cannot fault how fab the eyeshadows are to apply, as the colour went on strong and bold using hardly any powder. The only problem i had was the blending of the colours which i think is a consistent problem for me, so any tips and advice would be really useful!

Here is the result of my attempt to wear colourful eyeshadow:

(Yes i did only do one eye!)

It is a really bold look which i definitely would only wear for a night out, but i think i like it! And much to my surprise, blue doesn't look as bad as what i thought it would on me. I think i shall be much more adventurous with my eyeshadow from now on thanks to Sleek make-up!
