Purple and Taupe- Wet n' Wild Silent Treatment and Sleek

This look uses the same method of application as my previous green and gold look (darken both the inner and outer corners of lid), just with different colors.  I recently purchased the WnW Silent Treatment trio and have been using the taupe from it quite a bit- smudging it on my lid and popping some darker neutrals in the crease for a quick but pretty everyday work look.  This taupe shade is a great dupe for Chanel Fauve- almost spot on copy cat!  It can be used in looks in place of Mac's Satin Taupe- though it is a bit lighter.  The purple that I used from the Sleek Ultra Matte Palette is a great dupe for the famous  MakeUp Forever #92.  This Sleek shadow is a highly pigmented matte purple, and like its MUFE counterpart, it is a bit difficult to blend.  When using either of these colors for crease work, I suggest applying a matte highlighting shade on your brow bone first to help these matte purples blend.

  1. This looks very festive ! I haven't used the sleek matte palette in ages, need to change that ! :-D

    1. Thanks Luna, I love purple. I had almost forgotten about my Sleek matte palette until the other day- since then I've been using it daily. I love it.

  2. Are those your natural lashes? They look amazing!

    1. Thanks, but no these are definitely falsies. :) I got them off of ebay, a cheapie 10 pack from China
