I went years without lifting a finger or even coming close to purchasing a Too Faced eyeshadow palette, but after snagging the original Chocolate Bar palette for $25 at Sephora it’s been all downhill. I love the quality and shade selection of Too Faced’s Chocolate Bar and scented palette collection. Ulta recently offered a 35% discount on a limited selection of Too Faced palettes, so of course I had to take advantage. I added the delicious and rich Chocolate Gold palette to my collection and couldn’t be happier. Continue reading “Too Faced Eyeshadow Palettes: Chocolate Gold”
I used to have such a hard time deciding how to do my makeup when going out for a night. The two trends I fluctuated between were smokey eyes and bold lips, but that gets kind of old after a while. Here’s a crazy easy disco-worthy look that’ll turn heads but still get you out of the door in a reasonable time!
Focus on the Eyes
I’m so into the look of a bold shadow as a graphic wing. It’s simple, it’s customizable, and it’s so beautiful!
You can play around with the types of product you use (hello Stila Glitter + Glow liquid eyeshadows!), the colors, and the shapes until you find something that works for you.
I kept it simple with clean brows and a generous coat of Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara. I then brightened up the inner corner using the highlight shade “Believe” from the same Tarte palette.
Ready, Set, GLOW
With the focus being on your head-turning eyeshadow, keep the rest of your face glowy and natural.
I used my favorite long-lasting foundation combo: Too Faced Peach Perfect foundation, setting powder, and primer. This locks in a base that’ll stay in place all night.
To add some dimension, I reached for my favorite non-matte bronzers in the Tarte Tarteist Contour Palette Vol. 3. I wouldn’t describe these as “shimmery,” but they have a radiant finish that is sparkle-free. My favorite nude blush is Tarte paaarty, so I applied a generous amount to my cheeks, blending up to my temples to keep things looking seamless.
The finishing touch for the skin is definitely a cool crystal glow. In the Tarte Make Believe In Yourself palette, the center highlight shade “Believe” is an amazing opal glow that really looks ethereal on warmer skin tones. I love highlight shades with multiple colored undertones in them because they add a subtle complexity when the light hits them.
My lips are about as nude and simple as can be — my favorite pinky nude shade is NARS Lip Gloss in Chelsea Girls. While the color is also perfect, I love the formula. NARS glosses are pigmented, creamy, and nourishing without the uncomfortable stickiness.
Would you wear this look for your girls’ night out? I love disco-inspired and mod looks. I especially love making them easy to recreate and wearable!
