I was supposed to have this post up yesterday but I lost the majority of my photos because of a memory card issue. But here it is. This is my first look using this month’s palette: the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette. In my previous post I shared with you my initial thoughts so if you want to check that out then I’ll link it at the end of this post.
I wanted to do a very soft daytime look using the warm matte shades. In my previous post I mentioned how these shades in particular swatched quite patchy so I was most intrigued to see how this translated on the eyes.
First I used my MAC Paint Pot in Painterly as a primer and set it using Peaches n’ Cream from the palette.
I then went in with Puree and blended that into my crease, focusing it more in the outer part of my eye.
Next I use the shade Summer Yum and blended this on top of Puree to add depth.
I wanted to add a bit more depth so I used the shade Charmed, I’m Sure and applied this only to the outer corner and blended it very slightly into the crease.
Then I applied Nectar onto the inner two thirds of the lid and feathered it into the darker shades to create a smokey look.
I used a mixture of Puree and and Summer Yum on the lower lash and then finished the look with winged liner, keeping it towards the outer part of the eye to create the appearance of more elongated eyes. I didn’t apply false lashes because I wanted to keep it more of a casual daytime glam look, so I just used my Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara. And that was that.
Having applied the shadows onto my eyes, I did find that they applied better than expected. Puree and Summer Yum turned out to be quite easy to blend in and transferred a good amount of pigment without being too patchy. However, I’m still not impressed with the shade Charmed, I’m Sure. This was quite difficult to blend into the other shadows and was probably the most patchy of all that I used for this look; I had to spend quite a bit of time trying to blend it in. That’s not to say I won’t use this shadow much, but at least I’m aware of how to make it work. I liked the shade Nectar because it wasn’t too shimmery but it did have an iridescent look to it so I thought it worked well to place it in the inner part and centre of my eyelid.
Thats all I have to say about this look. Hopefully my memory card won’t act up again so next Wednesday you’ll be able to see the steps as I apply each shadow. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
