Smoked Aubergine (Using Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Iwanted to create a colourful, smokey look using the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette) and came up with this combination.  I really liked how using New Money (a metallic medium fuschia-pink) in the crease added some brightness to the look.

To complement the look: I used Kiko Marmoreal Biscuit Baked Blush on the cheeks (click here to read more about this product), Laura Gellar Baked Brulee Highlighter in Toasted Coconut to highlight the cheekbones and MAC Bombshell lipstick on the lips.

Purple Emerald (Using Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My last couple of looks with the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette) have been fairly subtle and so I really wanted to experiment with a bolder look.  This look combines together deep metallic forest green and purple eyeshadows to create a strong, defined effect on the lids.

To complement the look: I used The Balm Balm Springs Blush on the cheeks, The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer (click here to read more about this product) to highlight the tops of the cheekbones and Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paint in 610 Stripped Down (click here to read more about this product) on the lips.

Here is my second look using the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette (click here to see my post on this palette).  Holla For A Dolla is a really beautiful, metallic olive green and I couldn’t wait to try it out with some of the golds and chocolate browns in the palette.

My Favourite Make-Up For Long and Busy Days

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In January, I was doing some intensive lecturing work and as part of that, I wanted my make-up to last well across the day.  I found some products within my existing make-up collection – and some new products – to be extremely long wearing.  Some of them also enabled me to skip parts of my usual make-up routine.  I thought it would be fun to put together a post on these products.  I might also try and do some more detailed posts on each product as well so let me know if that is something you would like to see!

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Debenhams recently launched the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette online and I just couldn’t resist getting it.  I don’t have any of the other Too Faced Chocolate Bar palettes but this one really appealed to me.   The palette is filled with a mixture of brightly coloured and neutral metallic eyeshadows, as well as some matte shades for blending.  It just looks soooo beautiful and it smells incredible too!

Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in ‘Sparkling Bellini’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back in July 2016, I wrote a post featuring the Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer (click here to read the post).  I really loved this product (and still do!) and it made me curious about the other Sweethearts products.  My cousin’s wife mentioned to me that she had purchased the Sweethearts blush in ‘Peach Beach’ and so I thought it would be fun to check out the range.  

After swatching (and re-swatching) each of the blushes, I settled on ‘Sparkling Bellini’.  This particular blush has now become one of my favourites whenever I want to add a peachy-pink glow to my cheeks.  The blush is made up of three complementary shades (more on that below), meaning you can get four different blush effects on your cheeks.  Versatile, glowy and peachy-pink cheeks – I love it!

Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Pressed Powder

I’ve been looking for a new colourless setting powder for quite a long time now.  EmilyNoel83 (I love watching her YouTube videos) uploaded a video a few months ago featuring her favourite natural face powders.  The Too Faced Primed and Poreless Powder was given a mention and I thought, ‘Why not try it?’.  

I tried the powder over a foundation which I love but doesn’t have great staying power (I usually need a touch-up mid-morning) and wow!!! After applying my make-up early in the morning (around 7:15am), I didn’t feel the need for any powder touch-ups until later in the afternoon around 4pm.  That’s right – 4pm!!!

I mentioned in my recent post on the Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints (you can see the post here) that they are very comparable to the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks.  I thought it would be helpful to write a post comparing these two products to help you choose which might best fit your needs.
