The Bite Magazine - Autmn/Winter 2020 - Issue 28

bitebeauty Beauty Editor Giovanna Zac looks at the fantastic brand of Sleek MakeUp and their extensive make-up range. SLEEK MAKEUP THRILLED ENOUGH TO KISS SANTA S leek MakeUp is an authentic east London brand launched in 1985. The make-up brand recognised that women with darker skin tones were under-rep- resented in the cosmetic industry, and there were not enough colours and pigmented products for their skin tones. Sleek’s mission was to create a brand that would complement and cater for inclusivity and diversity. To- day, the brand has fully succeeded in accomplishing their goal and continues to elevate their collections that are going from strength to strength. Their iconic I-Divine eyeshadow palette was just the beginning. Today, the brand offers excellent quality, affordable products, in beautiful and intense colours, and innovative palette collections that are loved and respected worldwide. I personally love Sleek because it allows me to create varied looks. It gives me the freedom to choose from nude, natural looks, or deep, dramatic ones, to intense, vibrating creative make-up on any skin tone. Over the years, I have created many fashion and beauty looks using the colours and variety of products Sleek MakeUp offers. CREAM CONTOUR KIT The Cream Contour Kit is one of my favourites; it has everything you need for a perfectly sculpted face contouring. The palette consists of six different colours, two highlights, and four shades from light to dark that can be blended harmoniously to create a 3D effect on all skin tones. The non-greasy creamy texture is very smooth, allowing a flawless, velvety finish and works on all skin types. Inside the palette, there is a convenient, illustrated contouring guide, which explains, step-by- step, which colour to use and exactly where. It enables the user to blend all six colours, making contouring real make-up artistry. BLUSH BY 3 PALETTE The blush palette comes in a convenient combination of a cream blusher and two shimmer colours that can be used individually or mixed. I like the shade in PINK LEMONADE because it has three lovely pink hues that are perfect to use all year around. The texture is highly pigmented with just a little application enough to bring the full colours to the cheek area. Personally, I love to use the cream as an eyeshadow on my mobile lid, fol- lowed by the powders for a rich, full pink vibe party look. The blush palette comes in different colour com- binations from the orangey based LACE, peachy hue CALIFORN.I.A, to the plum combination of PINK SPRINT.
