3 Ways To Wear Sleek When The Sun Goes Down Eyeshadow Palette

When I attended the Behind the Brush makeup class with Lipstick Nick and Jeffree Star I received a large gift bag filled with makeup. One of the items was an eyeshadow palette from Sleek called When The Sun Goes Down. This palette is available for sale at Ulta and retails for $12.99. It contains a lovely mixture of matte and metallic eyeshadows that can take you from day to night. The color story contains mostly earth tones, with colors much more unique than I realized at first glance.

The palette itself is in the matte black format that most Sleek palettes come in. This is a smaller palette about the size of my hand. It comes with a nice sized mirror inside and sponge tip applicators. 

I have been testing out the palette over the past few weeks and was able to create a variety of daytime and nighttime appropriate looks. However, I like it best for creating more smokey looks. I found the shadows perform best over an eyeshadow primer such as Too Faced Shadow Insurance. 

Over a primer, which is how I wear all of my eyeshadows, the pigments last a good six hours before any noticeable fading.

There is an antique gold in the palette that I really love. The lighter shimmer shades also double as a face highlight. I didn't have to reach for any outside palettes to get a complete look because of the matte ivory and brown shades that work well as a base and contour shade respectively.

Below are three different looks I created using the palette. 

Look 1:

For the first look above I used a chocolate brown eyeliner, smoking out the edges with the shimmery copper in the palette.

Look 2:

For my second look, I played around with the mauve shadow as well as some of the bronze metallics. 

Look 3:

For my third look, I used the antique gold shadow on my lid, the matte brown on my outer corner and lower lash line, and the shimmery lighter shades under the brow and on the inner corner of my eye. 

 If you recreate any of these looks, please share them with me on Twitter @MakeupMatters1.
