Fall Makeup Tutorial: Featuring Sleek i-Divine Sunset Palette

I came up with this affordable Fall makeup tutorial using the i-Divine Sunset Palette from Sleek Makeup. If first primed my eyelids with the Palladio Herbal Eyeshadow Primer.

Image

Next I used the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Rust as a base on my eyelids.

Image

I applied the rust color to the inner and outer third of my eyelid.

Image

I applied orange to the center of the lid.

Image

I applied the burgundy color to the crease.

Image

Next I applied black to the outer V.

Image

I used this champagne color as my highlight.

Image

Applied NYX Slide On Eye Pencil in Jet Black to the upper lash line.

Image

Applied NYX Slide On Eye Pencil in Brown Perfection to the lower lash line.

Image

I applied this pale pink shade to the inner corner.

Image

Image

Applied Maybelline Falsies® Big Eyes® Mascara to the upper and lower lashes.

Image

I used the NYX Powder Blush in Cocoa as a contour to my cheekbones.

Image

I applied NYX Powder Blush in Desert Rose to the apples of my cheeks.

Image

The NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Absolute Red as my lip color was the final touch to this look.

I have used the CoverGirl Natural Hue Liquid Makeup in the past.  I like the All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation much better.  This foundation does a better job of providing coverage (coverage is buildable).  Most days I skip using concealer. The foundation feels lightweight. I also noticed it controlled oily shine better than the Natural Hue Liquid Makeup. I still had a little oily shine on my nose but it wasn’t that bad. The color also stayed true throughout an 8-hour workday.  I used the foundation in conjunction with the lasting matte pressed powder. The pressed was great for touchups and it didn’t cake up.

I also tried the Jumbo Gloss Balm. The gloss balm provided sheer color that lasted about four hours. What I liked the most about the gloss balm is that it twists up. I don’t have to worry about sharpening a pencil to get more color.  The gloss balm isn’t sticky either and is a great alternative to traditional lip glosses. The CoverGirl Queen Collection All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation retails for $9.79 at Target. The CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm retails for $6.99 at Target. The CoverGirl Queen Lasting Matte Pressed Powder retails for $4.99 at Target.
