Blogger Phyrra and I are fast friends, despite looking like such polar opposites. In the past, we've joined forces to show how dynamic certain palettes are and we are back with one of our favorite holiday palettes, Too Faced's La Belle Carousel.
This adorable palette is one that grabs your attention for its unique packaging but will end up on your vanity for longer than the holidays because it's just that versatile. Not only does this palette contain two blushes, two bronzers, but it also contains 4 individual shadow mini-palettes and a Better Than Sex mini-mascara. From nudes to smokey, this palette gives you options that rule the yule.
For my look, I chose a smoky holiday look that combines a little Christmas Tree, a little Santa's Boots and a little Frost. This will certainly help you capture the attention of whomever you want to meet you under the mistletoe.
As usual, my looks aren't super complicated, so anyone can master it. Here is how I got the look!
Dermalogica TRx Pure Light SPF - Be sure to allow plenty of time to absorb.
Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm - Apply over face and blend.
Apply Who's Your Poppy blush on apples and swept back towards ears.
Apply Chocolate Soleil bronzer in cheek hollows and around hairline.
Apply Shimmering Spice Baby lipstick all over your lips.
Add Shimmering Marshmallow Bunny lipstick in center of lips only.
Prime eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
Fill in brows with Too Faced Bullet Proof Brows.
Apply Frost shadow in corner, along lash line and under brow arch.
Apply Tin Soldier shadow lightly across the lid, below crease.
Using a thin, pointed brush, moisten the tip of the brush an apply Christmas Tree in the crease, creating a small "V". Smudge this into the silver color, blending carefully.
Take the same brush and apply a touch of Santa's Boots along the lash line.
Add Better Than Sex mascara n the top and bottom lashes.
I love the ease and variety of this collection--and you can't beat the price. My only caveat would be to use the Glitter Glue Glitter Binding Eye Shadow Primer if you are using the Nude Beach shadow. Grab this collection while it's still on shelves--it won't be around past Black Friday (I'd be willing to bet!).
