Over the past weekend (which was almost a week ago!), I did some final visitings and re-visiting in the festive mood of Chinese New Year. This time around the visits were more casual compared to the first few days of the lunar new year. It seems the first couple days involved elder and more traditional folks from extended families etc, hence the 'formal' atmosphere.
This post is a couple days late but I had been so caught up that I haven't managed to properly sit down and edit/blog this up, until now. I have another Valentines lotd I want to put up, it's far simpler and more focused on the product used but that would be for later.
Anyway in light of the quite recent Sleek spree, I was reminded of the palettes I already own and decided to show them some love - or show one of them at least.

Purple is my favorite color but I rarely wear it on my eyes as it takes a certain combination or shade for it to work well on me and I'm quite liking how this one turned out.
Here are the specific eyeshadows I used:
1. Outer edge of lid
2. Inner edge of lid
3. Blending the crease
I also used a darker brown in the 28 color palette for contouring the outer-v.
Since these gatherings were more casual I managed to wear my 'official' Chinese New Year-hauled clothes (haul entry here).
I initially had the top tucked out since it was crop but realised it probably looks better this way, tucked in. Pardon the cropped out background, I took this shot from the full-length mirror at the boyfriend's place and the background had random stuff.
I should really utilize my Sleek palettes more. They shades are so pretty and easy to work with that it defnitely deserves more attention from me.
Thank you for reading!
