A Candy Coral, Flamingo-Fueled Face of the Day With the New Too Faced Sugar Pop Palette

Published in: Face of the Day (FOTD), Too Faced


Wearing the new $36 Sugar Pop Palette by Too Faced Cosmetics on mah eyes

This look may or may not have been inspired by my new favorite animal, the flamingo.

(It was.)


Yeah, I’ve been on a flamingo kick lately. Dang birds are just so blasted bright and springy.

Speaking of that, my makeup today! I’m wearing a soft coral and warm bronze cut-crease eye look paired with hot pink lips.

Sort of flamingo-esque, don’t you think? Especially with the head tilt? ๐Ÿ™‚

Got a lotta Too Faced products up in the mix today…


Makeup worn in this look…

  1. Too Faced Sugar Pop Sugar Sweet Eye Shadow Collection ($36) — I used the shades from the Sweet & Spicy row along the top in Rock Candy, Macaron and Malted Milk Ball. FYI, the shadows in this palette exhibit some fallout, so I suggest doing your eyes first.
  2. Diorskin Nude Air Serum in 040 Honey Beige — on my cheeks, nose, forehead and around my mouth
  3. Too Faced Bronzed & Poreless Pore Perfecting Powder — bronzer
  4. Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation in Tan — all over the face to set my foundation
  5. MAC Eye Kohl in Costa Riche — water lines
  6. Too Faced Perfect Lips in Perfect Pink
  7. Too Faced Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glowmah cheeks
  8. Too Faced Melted Fuchsia Liquid Lipstick — kisser
  9. Eylure Texture No 117 — lashes (not shown)


Sometimes I think it helps to do your lips first and save your blush for last when you’re doing a colorful eye look with bright lips. I’ve noticed that when I’m doing bright colors and follow my regular routine of eyes, cheeks and then lips, I always go overboard with the blush and end up looking like that crazy auntie at the family reunion…


It’s OK though. It happens.

But still, might as well save yourself the heartache and do your blush last. I’m just sayin’.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. How’s it going today, my friend? Did you fall for any good April Fool’s pranks? Inquiring minds want to know…

    I love this look Karen! It’s makes me want this palette even more! lol.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kiwikiwidragon,

      Thank you! It’s a fun lil’ palette. If you end up playing with it be sure to do your eyes first so you can cleanup the fallout (I noticed some while doing this look).

      Happy April! Did you fall for any April Fool’s jokes?

    May I say you look lovely in flamingo pink? You look lovely in flamingo pink. Flamingos were my favorite birds when I was little. We’d go to Sea World – Busch Gardens in Florida every year or so, and I’d always have to see the flamingos.

    I love the Too Faced Palette. I’ve been playing with my since I got it. I predict it will be my spring favorite.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Rachel R.,

      Aw, thank you! I will have to take a picture for you of this purse I saw in a magazine last night… It had two flamingos on it and it was seriously the CUTEST. ๐Ÿ™‚

      So, which colors are your faves from this palette? I’m really liking the brown with the gold sparkle.

      Happy April!

      • Rachel R. says:

        My favorite is the Blue Raspberry. I really like the Candied Violet, too. I agree, the sparkly brown is gorgeous.

        The purse sounds adorable. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Funny flamingo-related story: For 10 years, I lived in a little town closer to the Oregon Coast, and there was a housing development. This older couple put a couple plastic flamingos in their yard. The development council made them removed them. However, there was nothing in the charter about what color you could paint your house.

        Yep! They painted their entire McMansion in bright flamingo pink, and put flamingo shaped lights and pictures in some of their windows. The council couldn’t do a damn thing about it, either. I didn’t know them personally, but those people were my heroes! That house was pink for 10 years. Last I was out that way, the house was still pink. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Lmao your pose would definitely make a flamingo jealous! Adorable self! I just love how Melted Fuchsia looks on you and I have to give a huge thanks for raving about that Dior foundation. I took a chance on it and it’s sooo perfect! I’m wearing it for the first time today and I’m completely impressed. The finish is so natural. It’s like I’m wearing nothing at all. Such a great buy!

    My mom LOVES flamingos, I always buy them for her. Target had an aqua v neck top with a little flamingo pattern when I was there yesterday.

    The best prank I saw is that my buddy, who teaches English as a second language, gave his students a word search that didn’t have any if the words in it

  7. Sweet palette. And, no, luckily, I did not believe anything suspicious today ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Haven’t fallen for a prank, yet, but I’m FINALLY GETTING RELIEF FROM MY ALLERGIES! Yeah, I screamed that at you. I may be a walking medicine cabinet at the moment, what with several doses of meds that didn’t work. But by golly, tomorrow will be an allergy free day +/- a new lippie to treat myself. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wait, you were featuring the new TF palette. Mental note to self: I will also be focused tomorrow.

    Absolutely love this look. It’s difficult to pull of pink eyeshadows but you do it great. Now I want this palette even more!

    I haven’t fallen for any April Fool’s jokes. I’m super cautious on April 1st! I don’t believe anyone or anything. Lol.

    I did, DH is out of town and I told him the bottom shelf on the fridge door broke and I was at home cleaning up the mess. He felt really bad for me and said he was going to start looking online for a replacement, since our fridge is no longer made. It was a good one!

  13. You look gorgeous here! I was waiting for an April Fools post from you actually ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m telling you, I was SO paranoid about everything yesterday, it was hell, lol.

    Wow, you look so fresh and pretty in pinks! I am loving this look, after a long and crappy winter I am so ready for spring and brighter colors. I feel like this palette is pretty dupable, but will definitely be using this for some inspiration!

  17. Well, when my alarm went off at 5 am I kind of wished the whole “Back-to-working-fulltime”-thing was a joke, but apart from that none tried to fool me. I must have looked extra grumpy, I guess.
