Here's to hoping the new year is about eyes that glow and not brows on fleek. Maybe it's just me, but I'm over the super heavily contoured, super smoked out insta-face looks. We all aren't wearing that look every day. I know we aren't.
So for the rest of us, who just want a little help making our eyes pop and look a little brighter, you'll want to get your hands on the latest chocolate-scented confection from Too Faced, The Chocolate Bon Bons Palette.
This palette makes your eyes glow. Sure, there are darker, smoky colors for nights out, but there are amazing daytime shades that work really hard without being really dramatic.
The left side of the palette gives you cooler shades that channel that older Kevyn Aucoin kind of eye. And call me nuts, but if you're a cool blond, try Almond Truffle as a brow color. It's going to pull a little pink, but in a really fresh way.
The right side is warmer, but still brings left of center color choices like Black Currant (deep purple) and Earl Grey (a smoky grey blue that leans more grey). The mattes are actually mattes and the shimmers shine.
Try breaking out of the normal lid, crease, highlight routine and try something like this to really make your eyes look large and bright.
Start by applying Cashew Chew on the lid.
Using a precision smudging brush, apply Pecan Praline along the outer crease (but don't make a "V"). Only apply to the outer third of the crease.
Using the same pencil brush, apply Pecan Praline to the inner crease just above the tear duct.
Apply Satin Sheets in the middle of the lid, just up to the crease. Apply a small amount of Satin Sheets under the brow, just under the highest point of the arch.
Line with Dark Truffle. Finish with Better Than Sex Mascara.
Grab this palette for endless bright eyed looks and enjoy the scent of chocolate as you get ready. (I'm told Too Faced is going peach soon - I can't wait!) Want more pictures? Check them out below!
