Hey guys! Welcome back to BriMyselfAndEye! Today I got in my Christmas present, Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Palette. It smells just like chocolate. I kept it pretty basic, didn’t do too much on the face.
I made the eyes the main emphasis, just using one palette for the eyes. There are so many different possibilities with this palette. I’ll be doing an in-depth review, for those that are interested. So this is what I got out of it, I really like the Peanut Butter colors in there! If you are like me and you love neutrals or natural browns and shades like that, then you will LOVE LOVE LOVE this palette! I think it will compliment blue eyes or green eyes, the most.
But pretty much any neutral brown eye will look good on anybody. If your interested in seeing how I achieved this, then stay tuned! Subscribe if you haven’t already, “Like” if you like it! If you have any suggestions on this palette or future looks with other palettes or things like that you’d like to see here on BriMyselfAndEye, then leave me a comment down below-letting me know what you’d like to see here.
I’ll see you in my next tutorial!! Bye~ Hello! Taking the start of the show, which is the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette. It’s a beautiful palette I just got for Christmas! I’ll start by priming my eyes with MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15, this will help neutralize any coloring you may have and give a nice palette (canvas) for the shades we’re going in with.
Then taking a Sigma E40 brush and take Nougat, Coconut Creme, and Mousse and just blend that all over my eye lid and crease area and outer-v. This will give a really nice blending shade and transition shade for the other colors we’ll go in with.
Then with the E40-the darker you take the shades the more to the crease and outer-v you want to keep them. For this kind of look I want a little more dimension- not so much totally smoky-rather a little bit of a warmer cut-crease/ chocolate eye.
Then taking Peanut Butter on a E25 blending brush packing that on mostly the outer-v and then blend that into the rest of the shades we have already on. I think Peanut Butter and a shade (we’ll use) a couple of shades from now are my favorite! Now with the E55 Flat Shading Brush and a bit of Truffled & Puddin’ I’ll pack that mostly on the outer-v.
Using a flat brush like this will really help place that pigment right where you want it instead of the fluffier brushes, which can sometimes give a more wispy application. Then using the E25 and E40 and blend that out.
Now taking Butter Pecan and the E40 Sigma brush I’ll blend that into the crease up to the brow bone just a little bit. Then taking that E55 Flat brush and go in with Pink Sugar, which is really pretty kind of glitter shade, which I normally don’t go for glittery shades that much.
I prefer matte or shimmery, but not so much glittery-but it really opens up the eyes and it’s just something different. I really liked the way it looked with the browns. Then I’ll take Bon Bon and Caramel on an E35 Blending brush.
I’ll have every thing used, listed below in the downbar with links, if I can find them. Now taking my favorite, besides Peanut Butter, which is Cocoa Chili with an E55 Flat Shader and also just to press that on, then go in and make it more defined with a Pencil E30 brush.
Then with Caramel with an E55, I’m pressing that right over and blend that into the Pink Sugar shade that we already put on. This will really warm up that glittery tone. I think this helps open up the eyes and gives it a really warm and beautiful pop! With shades like these, I like to go in with smaller amounts and keep adding and adding and layering onto each other instead of going in with too much and trying to get rid of it.
Now with Stila black felt-tip eyeliner, its the Stay All Day. I’m only going in with a really thin line, not anything too crazy or thick. I’m not doing a huge smoky eye, so I don’t really want gel liner because I don’t want it to look that messy.
But you can use gel liner, if you prefer that- you can go either way with this kind of look. With Tarte Gifted mascara I’ll coat my lashes starting with the base of the lash and wiggling it up a little bit-making sure I get all the lashes coated and fluffed out and lengthened.
Now I’m moving on to the face! Taking Smashbox Color Correcting Primer. I’ll press that all over my skin. The green will help neutralize the red tones you may have going on. Taking Estee Lauder Perfectionist Foundation in Sand with a Sigma F80 Kabuki brush and my damp (and squeezed out a bit) Beauty Blender.
Going in with the middle of the face and move outward. I’ll be pressing and swiping this around, I put a lot on the nose lol haha. So I’m going to move some of that out and then once I get that where I want it on the face, I will press in.
Make sure NOT to neglect your neckline so you do not have any hash makeup lines. I blend into my hairline just a tad. Now taking the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard I’ll go over any areas where I may have some “face-demons” or areas that are uneven tones.
Covering them up with the damp beauty blender and dabbing that and pressing that into the areas and mixing into the foundation. This will help cover up any blemishes or problem/ trouble areas. You’ll want to go in with a shade that’s actually your skin tone for this type of coverage.
You do not want to go in with your highlighter, we’ll do that in just a minute. The highlighter will draw out any kind of blemishes you have, so go in with the cover-up that is matching your skin tone for any kind of redness you may have.
I’ll bring that down to the neckline as well. Next, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Light 15, this I will go and highlight, since it is a little lighter than my shade. Then going in and contour a bit with the L’Oreal True Match Concealer, in a medium/deep, I’ll put the number in the downbar below.
Then blending that out and press that together with the damp Beauty Blender again, which still has some of my foundation and skin tone concealer. So it’ll help mix this all together nicely. Press that all into the skin to help waken up the face.
With the contour, make sure you are brushing outwards and upwards. Then with the F… ? I forget this one, I’ll put the number below, it’s the Tapered Highlighting Brush for the face with my MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in Light Plus and dab that all over my T-Zone and under eyes to set all liquid that we just put on.
Helping ensure it dose not crease. Then using my Forever Puff (in Wave), which is one of my favorite ways to apply to set the rest of the face by pressing and rolling gently. I’ll rub that all along the neckline and hairline just a tad and under the eyes.
Just kind of cleaning up any out of bounds areas. Now taking the shades (I’ll list them below) I believe they are, Hot Fudge, Puddin’, and Licorice on Flat Definer brush E15. Blend that just out the outer corner of the eye, I don’t want to take this too far into the inner corner.
I’ll blend that out with a Pencil Brush in just a minute. I like laying this down as a soft kind of eyeliner look. With an E30 Pencil brush with Peanut Butter and Truffled, really blend this out. This one I will take to the inner corner of my eye, so we have less harsh lines.
Then take that all around full circle, so it blends in with the rest of the eyeshadow. Now with the MAC 242 Shader brush and Butter Pecan. I’ll use this as my highlighting shade, it’s really pretty and not too shimmery, which is nice.
I take this on my brow bone and inner corners of my eye.This will open up the eyes and make them pop a little more. Then taking Physicians Formula Organics mascara in Ultra Black, I’ll retouch my mascara and I do coat my bottom lashes because they are a little long so I like the way that looks, but you do not have to do that part.
Taking Anastasia Duo Brow Powder in Soft Brown and her number 20 brush and spooley and comb out my hair (which is wild and crazy and needs to be plucked soon lol ) I shape them how I want them. Then with the flat brush end and start out with darker strokes on the tail of my eyebrows and then go in with lighter strokes towards the front of my eyebrows or the part closest to your nose.
Then taking the spooley side and brush out any harsh lines from the powder. I’m not going for huge dramatic eyebrows, this time. I just want to clean and fill them in. Then blend in some of the natural colors we used earlier and the MAC 242 and highlight shade and retouch my brow bone and inner corner.
Using the Smashbox Contour Palette, with the Sigma Powder/Contour/ Blush brush (I’ll put the number down below) any kind of fluffier brush you have will work for this kind of look. I’m doing a contour but mostly in a bronzing type of method.
I think it’s really pretty with a look like this to go a little softer. I’ll dab the temples and my cheeks keeping that in an upward motion into my hairline. Your contouring should go from the top of the ear to the right where the (tail) of the eyebrow starts/ends below your cheekbones.
Now taking the Tarte Pinup Palette in, Breathless, Bashful, and Irreplaceable (lol opps not Irresistible). This is a nude, peachy, and a dab of a rose shade. I like mixing these 3 together, but any peachy shade you have will really help bring out the browns and warm tones you have going on.
You could also do a pink shade if that is what you prefer, I just wanted it to be more earthy warm look. I’ll marry that blush into the contour shades that we used from the Smashbox palette and ensure it’s all blended.
Next with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette in Incandescent Light and the Tapered Highlighting ? F35 brush (listed below) I’ll sweep that under my eye and along the t-zone to help soften up this look and clean up any fall out we may have had during flight lol.
With Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal and a fan brush, I found this randomly somewhere, I don’t even know (remember) where. Going over the top of the cheekbones, t-zone (lightly), and cupids bow.
Next using Milani lip liner in Nude, I’ll line the lips. Then using NARS pencil lipstick, I forget what color it is (listed below) it starts with an “R” I can never pronounce it! Finally, take a setting spray this is Skindinavia in Bride.
And that is IT!!! I kept it pretty simple hehehe “Simple” ::sarcasticlaugh:: It smells just like chocolate so if you like chocolate then that’s a bonus!! Lol 🙂
