A Summery Face of the Day with Too Faced Natural Eye Palette

Published in: Face of the Day (FOTD)

Can I have a fan blowing my hair back like this 24/7? Please?

Even though summer’s quickly slipping away, I’m not ready to let it go. It’s hella hot again today in Nor Cal, so I couldn’t resist busting out this summery look with shimmery golden brown eyes.


Remember the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette from a few days back? I followed the Fashion eye look instructions, adding Cargo’s awesome Plant Love Eyeliner in Black to the waterline for a little extra oomph.



The other stars in this summery show are NARS Blush in Torrid and our girl MAC Nymphette.



Excuse the fan action, LOL! It’s sooo cheesy but I *love* it. πŸ™‚

How’s it going out in your neck of the woods? Got any exciting Friday night plans? I’m not sure what I’m doing yet, but whateva it is I hope it involves air conditioning!

    Karen! I like this Kim Kardashian look on you!

    Hey Karen,

    Looking very glamorous there. I wish I could have a fan to blow my hair out everywhere I go, too! I’m glad you’re enjoying your too faced palette.

    I wanted to go to a party tonight, but my friends are strapped for cash so they bailed. I’m a bit disappointed, but what can you do? I’ve got the golden girls, my laptop and my AC to comfort me. LOL

    The fan kicks arse Karen!

    Hmm tonight I am probably ordering pizza and watching a movie at home, which is standard fare for a Friday night. It’s hotter than Hades here also and it’s quiet and hazy out. Reminds me a little of the day of the Oakland Hills fire, yipes!

      Hi Kelly,

      OMG, it’s SO hot up here in Marin. I’m literally melting in my chair.

      Pizza and a movie sounds good. If I can somehow magically conjure some air conditioning I’d love to do that too. πŸ™‚

      How’s your Friday going?

  4. Kelly says:

    It’s a weird one today. I was telecommuting anyway, but there was a huge chemical spill at a plant near work so they closed the entire campus and no one could go in.

    I have A/C but we hardly ever turn it on, it’s actually kinda cool inside because I had everything shut up today. I definitely will NOT be turning the oven on to cook tonight though! πŸ™‚

    Hey how are you watching True Blood season 2? I haven’t been able to get any of the online players to work for me and I need a vamp fix!

    I want your hair. LOVE the fan action! Now I want to go out and buy this palette (just add it to my list)!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Michelle,

      If you like neutrals you might like this a lot! πŸ™‚ I’ve tried a couple of the looks — the Day and the Fashion ones are my favorite. You can also mix and match the colors to make your own looks, too.

      How’s your Friday going? This week went by so fast!

    Fan action would be cool 24/7. There’s just one teeny tiny problem–I get that nearly everyday, albeit the Windy City variety. One grows really, really tired of the wind after a while, especially as I’ve got the fine hair that loves tangling. I especially hate the wind in winter as it just loves blowing over the frozen lake!

    Unfortunately, I won’t be getting much fan action. My brother and mom lovingly badgered me in cutting my hair last Sunday. I got nearly three-and-a-half inches chopped off the back! My longest layer just hits below my shoulder. :sobs: I want my long hair back!

    It’s been really cold here in the Midwest. The weatherman says it should hit around 79 next Friday but until then, I’m stuck in jeans. Poor Zena hasn’t had a walk in two days! It rained all day yesterday and it stopped this afternoon but it’s still humid! I slept until 3 this afternoon. I never sleep that late unless I have a migraine. Apparently, I was more tired than I had originally thought!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kate & Zena,

      No worries, girlfriend — you’re hair will be back soon enough. And haaaay, at least this way you can save a lil’ bit of money on shampoo.

      What are you plans for the weekend? Studying?

  7. Ida says:

    Wow! I’ve only been on your blog for a few minutes but I felt like I really must tell you the affect you have already had on me. (I’m Swedish so you’ll have to excuse me if my english isn’t all perfect.)

    I was checking out your video up in the corner almost right away (when I entered the site) and it really made me feel welcome and gave a really positive first impression of you and your blog. The video itself together with your latest posts made me want to come back soon again and instantly made me put your blog among my favourites.

    I am going to check out some of your older posts (entries? haha I don’t know which word to use here but I’m sure you understand what I mean..) and I look forward to come back here!

    Hope you had a great day!
    Hugs, Ida

      Hi Ida,

      A big hello from San Francisco! Ya know, the internet STILL amazes me. It trips me out that I get to “meet” people from all over the world.

      Are you a makeup enthusiast? What are your favorite brands?

      Talk to you soon!

  8. Ida says:

    Btw, I LOVE your hair. You do have my dream look when it comes to hair and skin color. It’s beyond gorgeous. My skin color is very light and I have a hard time even getting a tan. Me, jealous? – Oh yes!

  9. Marce says:

    Perfect! It looks fabulous, and the fan is so not cheesy, your hair looks amazing with all that kick ass volume! I really want Nymphette…I’ve wanted it for ages, and this just makes me want it more! πŸ˜€

  13. Kate & Zena says:

    LOL on the shampoo. I know it’ll grow back but it’s absolutely infuriating at times as I can’t pull it into a bun without half my hair sticking out!

    My weekend plans are (hopefully) walk Zena, do my laundry, buy a USB cable so I can upload pictures from my camera phone, beat up the courier company if my psychology book doesn’t arrive tomorrow, write down the due dates of all my essays (which seems endless) on my calendar and reading. Lots of it.

  14. Stephie says:

    DaYum Karen. I love these fan pictures of you. I don’t know how you look so fresh in them. Can’t say the same for myself. I’m really surprised how the eyeshadows are neutral but striking at the same time. That EOTD combo looks really great on you!

    I think that is an AWESOME look! You just look fabulous – it may be a neutral palette but it really stands out on you! These people should pay you for advertising their product so well πŸ˜‰

    I have plans for… well, tonight (since it’s already Saturday in Europe!). I’m partying the night away since I leave Vienna on Tuesday, and Europe the following Monday! I’ll be sad to leave but happy to be back with my family and friends.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kypris,

      I can’t believe your time there is almost over! It seems like it’s gone by in a flash. How are you liking Vienna? I’ve always wanted to go.

  20. Tavia says:

    You look gorgeous in the first photo :). I like this palette, but the other days I was in Sephora to take a peek at the smoky eye palette. Interesting how the makeup would turn out to be, cause I saw dark blue and green and I usually don’t use these colors. Maybe you can do a review on this palette soon and a makeup combining this colors would be interesting too.

    Karen, Vienna is a blast. I love the social scene here, and mmm the desserts and coffee are certainly something to write home about! I also discovered a MAC store here, but I didn’t want to tempt myself so I stayed away… my wallet is already feeling a lot lighter after this summer!
