It’s back to school time and I’ve created a one brand makeup look that is light, fresh and pretty. All the products have been given to me for review purposes and I love them all! I highly recommend SLEEK MAKEUP. The i-Divine ¬†“Calm Before the Storm” palette from the¬†Nautical Collection is very beautiful and pigmented. I love how the formula blends so perfectly and the lipstick colour is stunning. The true colour lipstick formula is creamy but not drying at all. The creme to blush formula and colour is so pretty and beautiful. I really love all the products and I highly recommend Sleek Makeup.¬†¬†For a look at the entire collection have a look at my post SLEEK MAKEUP POST.


 Here is the look I created. I also have a video to accompany this look. 

For this back to school makeup look I used The¬†Nautical Collection i-Divine Palette “Calm Before the Storm” I also used Creme to Powder Blush in PINK PEONY 076, I then used¬†Eau La La¬†Liner in NOIR 289 and ¬†True Colour Lipstick which is a semi-matte in the colour REDDY TO SAIL 086. Let’s have a closer look at all the lovely Sleek MakeUp that I used. ( I also used Essence Lash Princess Mascara and Essence XXXLip Shine in 29 CUTE PINK)

Nautical Collection i-Divine Palette “Calm Before the Storm”¬†


I used the Quad on the LEFT SIDE of the Palette.

1.Voyage for all over the eyelid

2. Barque for the crease.

3. AHOY! for the top of the eyelid.

4. STARBOARD for the highlight on the brow bone.

 I then used the lovely and creamy EAU LA LA  eyeliner in NOIR around my eyes. The liner is soft, smooth and creamy. The amazing part is that it is Smudge proof and waterproof! It is very long lasting. 1404

I then used the beautiful Creme to Powder Blush in PINK PEONY 076. I used my finger to apply the blush. It is so soft and creamy and I absolutely adore this colour! I find that using your finger for the cream blushes is so much nicer and easier. I love this colour. It gives such a beautiful fresh and vibrant feel to the face.





I used a lip brush for the lipstick because I didn’t want too much on the lips. I wanted a more faint look and a hint of colour. I find that when I use a brush I have more control of how much colour goes on the lips. I used the colour 086 True Colour Lipstick “REDDY TO SAIL” this is also a part of the Nautical Collection. A perfect Coral Red Semi-Matte Lipstick.

Thank you so much for reading my post! I wish you all a wonderful month and a positive and happy beginning to the School year!
