This week I’m continuing my Too Faced “week” (loosely used, it will be a few more days!) and today I’m showcasing one of my real “go-to” eye shadow palettes. On days that I don’t really want to think about it, I will frequently grab this palette to create a pretty but neutral and professional look.
The only issue I have with these shades is that Nude Beach is pretty… glittery? It’s not really glitter, it’s more like powder that’s about the size of glitter but only a bit shimmery. Regardless, it has a lot of fallout, so I tend to use that color sparingly. I have noticed that it mixes well with Silk Teddy, so I’ll often dip my brush into both pans and use them together.
When using this palette, I end up with this eye look about 90% of the time. Here I’ve used Silk Teddy all over my lid, up over my crease and into the contour area a little. I then applied Push Up in the crease and to about the point where the Silk Teddy ends in the contour, and in a little V almost over the outer 1/3 of the lid. I blend all of the shadows very lightly.
Here I’ve used a brown smudgy liner (this is Stila Oscar Fish), which I’ve pushed into the lash line and then smudged into the shadow. I finish by curling, curling and still curling my lashes and then applying mascara (more about how I apply mascara).
