EOTD: Colourful look with the Curaçao palette from Sleek Makeup

Hello beauties!

I have another EOTD for you all. For this look, I used the Curaçao eyeshadow palette from Sleek Makeup that came out with the Caribbean collection. You can read my post about this palette and swatches here.
This palette has a lot of fun, bright colours in it which are great for summer. Even though we haven't seen the sun all that much yet here in Belgium, I decided to brighten up my day with these beautiful colours:

Here’s a list of all the products I used and how I used them:

- MAC Siahi Fluidline: as a base all over the lid up to the crease, applied and blended with fingers.

- MAC Blacktrack Fluidline: used to line top and bottom waterline, smudged between the lashes and lined upper lashline with a little wing, with a small liner brush (MAC 209).

- MAC Brun: to fill in my brows with an angled brush (MAC 263).

- MAC Vanilla eyeshadow: as a browbone highlight, applied with a flat shader brush (MAC 239)

- Sleek Green Iguana (from the Curaçao palette) : on the inner corner and the inner half of the lower lashline and over the Siahi fluidline, so on the lid with a flat shader brush (MAC 239) and blended in to the crease (MAC 217).

- Sleek Purple Haze (from the Curaçao palette)applied with a small pencil brush (MAC 219) and blended slightly upwards. Also applied on the outer half of the lower lashline, blended with the Iguana Green

- Sleek Singapore Sling (from the Curaçao palette) : applied right above the Purple haze, blended together and upwards with a pencil brush (MAC 219) 

- Sleek Espresso Martini (from the Curaçao palette): used to darken the outer corner, with e pencil brush (MAC 219).

Max Factor False Lash Effect mascarafew coats on the top lashes, one coat on bottom lashes.

- False Lashes from Claire's applied with DUO Lash Adhesive.
