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.

Some time ago, I watched a You Tube video by Emilynoel83 where she recommended the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolors.  I have tried out – and loved – some of the products she has recommended in the past and so I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of these lipsticks.  The Ultra HD Gel Lipcolors are a relatively new addition to the Revlon lipstick line-up.  I picked up two shades: 705 Dawn, a neutral rose with a slight sheen and 760 Vineyard, a medium mauve-plum.

One of my favourite plum lipsticks (MAC Craving) finished a while ago (sob!) and so there was a wee plum coloured gap in my lipstick collection.  Rather than buying the same shade again, I really wanted to try out a similar shade from another brand.  There is something really fun about trying out a similar shade from another brand, particularly one that I haven’t tried before.  Enter Smashbox ‘Be Legendary Lipstick’ in ‘My Digits’!
