Valentine’s Makeup Tutorial ft. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette

A few weeks ago, my friend Honey on youtube, came up with an awesome collab for Valentine’s.  We would each do a look with our Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette; I would be using the original Chocolate Bar for my look, and Honey would use her Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar for hers.

I was indecisive for a while as to what color scheme and placement I wanted to do.  I am glad I chose the look I will be sharing today.  The colors came together as I had hoped.  To see how I created my Valentine’s look, feel free to click the video below.

For my makeup look I used the following products:

– Too Faced Insurance Eye Primer

– Nyx Eye Shadow Base in Skintone

– The shadows Amaretto, Strawberry Bon Bon, Black Forest Truffle, Champagne Truffle, and White Chocolate from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette

– Urban Decay Dual 24/7 End Eyeliner (Venus/Crave) the Crave end

– L’Oreal Black Water Proof Manga Mascara

– Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser

– Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in Sunlight

– Too Faced Sweet Heart blush in Candy Glow (the strip on the far right)

– Benefit’s High Beam Tint

– Too Faced Glamour Gloss in Flirt

– (not in the tutorial) Covergirl brow pencil in midnight brown and Salon Perfect Brow Sculpting Gel

I really need to use this palette more often!!  It smells so delicious, and the shadows feel so soft, while I apply them.  It was great seeing how this look came together using it.  I want to thank Honey for inviting me to do this collab!! It was fun playing with Too Faced together!!!

Sapphire Inspired Smokey Using the Too Faced Country Palette

I was simply enchanted when Too Faced released their Country eye shadow palette this year.  The selection of shadows beckoned to me, or so it seemed at the time – a perfect combination of neutrals and pastels!!  I just couldn’t resist purchasing this beauty (the packaging is just darling, to boot!!).  However, months later I realize I have used it maybe but once or twice; for shame!!!

Now with the summer season over, I will be deviating from its bright tones and reaching for neutrals, and other shades more suited for autumn and winter.  I believe shadows in this palette will be perfect to play with for this season, thus I will be implementing it more in some tutorials starting today.

I found inspiration in my birthstone (September), sapphire for this look.  To see how I created such a makeup look, please click the video below!

What I used:

– Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eye Primer

– Nyx Eye Shadow Base in Skintone

– Too Faced Country Eye Shadow Palette (the shadows Blue Bird, Nashville, and Cowboy Take Me Away)

– Maybelline Eyestudio Eye Shadow Duo in Downtown Denim (the light blue)

– Urban Decay Naked Basics Dual Eyeliner in Crave

– Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Black

– L’oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara Black Brown

– Rimmel London Match Perfection 2-in-1 Concealer and Highlighter in 230 Fair/Light

– Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

– Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in Sunlight

– EM Cosmetics Lipstick in Cabana Beige
