Blueberry Truffle Me: A Chocolate-Inspired Makeup Look With the New Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eye Palette

Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette

A makeup look inspired by blueberry truffles!

Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar PaletteBlueberry truffles: health food of the future?

I wish. But seriously, I’m coming down with a cold right now, and I’m pretty sure there are antioxidants in both blueberries AND chocolate, soooo…I should probably be eating way more blueberry truffles.

Here’s a look inspired by one of my sweetest loves, blueberry truffles, and I used the deliciously named Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette.

I got the idea for this blue and chocolate brown eye look while doing Valentine’s chocolate-themed makeup “research” at See’s Candies (read: biting into the Blueberry Truffle sample the nice lady at See’s gave me).

Incidentally, I live dangerously close to the Novato Vintage Oaks See’s Candies, and if I hit all the green lights, I can get there in three minutes.

I’m just sayin’.

I was in the early stages of choco-ecstasy (it’s a real thing!) when I saw this look clearly in my endorphin-flooded mind — shimmery blue lids, a warm matte brown crease, blue smudged along the lower lash lines, lashes loaded with mascara, and everything surrounded by a soft, smokey haze.

I’m wearing Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Nude Beach topped with NARS Turkish Delight Lipgloss on my lips.

The first palette I thought of was the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar ($49), the brand’s new chocolate-scented spring eyeshadow palette.

Excuse me a moment while I open it and take a sniff.

Ah… :)

Look Book: Save Time With Big Lashes and Bold Lips

When you’re trying to look cute but your hair is crazytown

Big lashes + bold lips = a purr-fect pairing! The combo is one of the fastest ways to get a dramatic makeup look without using a ton of different products.

There are times when “I’ll be done with my makeup in 20 minutes” really has to mean 20 minutes…and not 45, and in order to prevent El Hub from yelling things like, “You said you’d be done in 20 minutes an hour ago!” I’ll pop on the biggest, fluffiest, most dramatic pair of false lashes I can find (I keep a few pairs around because you just never know) and a bold lip color — usually a fiery red, hot pink or colorful coral (basically, if it’s a color that could stop traffic, it’s a contender).

I love doing this look because it’s so much quicker than looks with intense and complicated blending on the lids or dramatic winged liner, and I can play up both my lips and eyes with minimal effort.

Melted Liquified Lipstick in Melted Strawberry is one of several new Melted Lipstick shades available now at Too Faced counters and online for $21 each. Melted Strawberry’s a smooth, lightweight full-coverage creamy red. When I use it, I prep my lips first with a lip balm because these lipsticks can be kind of drying, and then I apply it with a lip brush to get a nice crisp edge.

Carrie & Big? You gotta be kitten me! I think Carrie & Aiden would’ve been a far better name for this new $34 Too Faced Soul Mates Blushing Bronzer (it’s one of two), but that’s because I’ll never, ever, EVER get over how Big stood up Carrie at the wedding. I’m all for forgiveness, but if some dude left my BFF hanging in her big white dress, I would kick that man’s booty from here to next Tuesday.

Team Aiden 4 life! :)

MAC Viva Glam? Yes Ma’am! A Hump Day Face of the Day Using the Too Faced Sugar & Spice Palette, the NARS Virtual Domination Cheek Palette and MAC Viva Glam

OK, so I’m enjoying an Amy’s Mexican Casserole Bowl and watching Gilmore Girls last night when I kindasorta FREAKED THE EFF OUT. One of the main characters in the show, Lorelei Gilmore (the mom half of the Gilmore duo), was getting her best friend Sookie ready for a date, doing her hair, putting on her makeup — all of that good stuff a beauty BFF does for her gal pals. Anywho, when she’s ready to apply Sookie’s lipstick, she calls out to her daughter Rory (the other half of the Gilmore Girls) downstairs to bring up “Viva Glam.” Yes! THE Viva Glam. She doesn’t say the word “MAC,” but when she holds the lipstick up to Sookie’s lips, you can clearly see the tube, and it’s definitely MAC.

Witty banter? Endless cups of coffee? MAC makeup references? This just might be the best show ever. :)

I still had Viva Glam on my mind this morning when I was getting ready, so I took out my favorite version, Viva Glam V Lipglass, and paired it with a cool-toned smokey brown and peach eye using the new Too Faced Sugar & Spice Palette ($39, available now), and the new NARS Virtual Domination Cheek Palette.

Also, just for fun, and to see how the eyes would look with a more dramatic lip, I swapped out Viva Glam V with the new Viva Glam Rihanna 2 Lipstick and Lipglass…

Wow! I actually really like the bolder lip combo.

Incidentally, the first time I wore the Rihanna 2 lippies separately, I felt they looked a little too stark on me. Then I tried them together and came around. Now I’m lovin’ that deep, sparkling pinkish mauve.

As for my cheeks, I’m wearing the new NARS Virtual Domination Cheek Palette ($65, from the new holiday collection). It comes with three blushes (Sex Fantasy, Deep Throat and Final Cut), a highlighter (Miss liberty) and a bronzer (good ol’ Laguna), available exclusively at Sephora starting November 1.
