Sleek Saturday - 'Good Girl' Palette

For those of you who read Liloo's blog, you'll know that she has a feature called Sleek Saturdays, where she digs out the Sleek palettes that she doesn't use and creates looks with them. She also invites other bloggers to take part, so I took this opportunity to kill two birds with one stone; First of all this would be an incentive to create a look, as I haven't had much inspiration over the last few months and also it would be a chance to use my Sleek Good Girl Palette, which I haven't really used much.

Now in theory, this palette is PERFECT for me. I adore everything pink and always have, yet for some reason, I've never really used it.

I love everything about the colours except for the fact that I have no idea how to make them work with me. I suppose for a really wearable look I could try combining pink with gold? It could look nice, so I'll have to try that at some point. As I didn't really want to cheat, I just stuck to the colours in the palette, getting this for a result...

So keeping with the Sleek theme, I used the Pout Paint in Pinkini (review coming soon!) and as you can see, I now have a fringe. I love it! It's a bit more upkeep, but I feel it suits my face more than before, so I'm willing to sacrifice the little time that I have to spend straightening it.

I think I'm improving slightly with the eye close ups, although they're still not perfect. But then again, practice makes perfect, doesn't it?

So the eyeshadows that I used were Pink Punch, Papaya, Morello and Lychee. The eyeliner I used is Maybelline's Gel Liner in Brown as I don't have a black liquid liner at the moment.

In this picture I think I tried a mix of Pout Paints Pinkini and Milkshake, but wasn't that keen on it so I went with just Pinkini.

I hope you guys like the look although I'm certain it's not my best and there are definitely other ways that I can use pink, which I think I'll try out in the next few days (especially the pink and gold idea, it sounds nice)

And on a final note, I'd like to apologise again for my absence. I've been in England and before that I was working and I had a few days in between working so I used those to just relax and laze around. :)


  1. I am loving your fringe and I think this look is amazing! Very pretty and it looks great with Pinkini.

  2. Thank you :) It's nothing compared to your Piglet look that you did a while back , the pink eyebrows were amazing! I wish I could play around with eyebrow colours but they're too dark for that :) And yes, I do think it looks better with Pinkini than the other shade :) xx

  3. loving the eyeshadow! can be tricky to pull off, but if you go for it it can look pretty immense like this :) xxx

  4. woweee i love the fringe makes your cheekbones look AMAZING xxx

  5. I think pink really suits you! Your hair looks very pretty too - gorgeous :)

  6. I love what bright pinks do for us blue-eyed gals. <3

  7. nat, nat, nat, you're so naughty! You made me want that palette, now! that pink you chose is absolutely gorgeous, and i love the eyeliner you chose as well. the pink makes such a gorgeous contrast to the blue of your eyes. I hope you enjoyed sleek saturday. I did, although i was a little bit rushed this week x

  8. @Bex thank you! I always worry I have difficulty pulling things off (like smokey eyes) so it's nice to hear I can pull something off :) xxx
