SUGARY SWEET






Hello Friends!

My apologies for the late post today and no post yesterday. I've been running around like crazy this week on almost no sleep and a great deal of coffee. But I'm back and super excited for today's post!

I was going through some of my photos, cleaning out my phone, and realized I'd never posted specifically about this eye look. It's one of my favorites and all of the colors I used are from the same palette. I purchased my Too Faced Sugar Pop Sugary Sweet palette months ago, but have only recently been giving it a lot of love. The packaging is adorable with macarons all over! Some of the colors may seem a bit bold at first glance, but used the right way, are very pretty and even work appropriate

FYI: I started with the eyes before any other face products (other than moisturizer) to achieve this look. Make sure to prime the lids before you use any shadow! My go to is MAC's Painterly Pro Long Wear Paint Pot, which also doubles as an eye shadow. Priming the lids will help your eye shadow to last longer - it's not just a money maker. If I use a primer before my shadow, I can literally sleep with in my makeup and wake up looking like nothing has budged! But I don't recommend ever sleeping in your makeup hah.

I first used the color Peach Fuzz as a transition shade in my crease using my E35 brush from Sigma Beauty. I then took Malted Milk Ball on a MAC 217 Blending Brush and placed it on the outside corner of my lid and halfway into the crease, followed by Blackberry (usually using the same 217 brush) only on the outer corner so that the darkest color was concentrated on the outside. I then used Rock Candy on the inner corner and main part of my lid using my MAC 213 Fluff Brush so that it brought a lightness to my eyes. Only in the very middle of my lid I placed Macaron, a beautiful organge (the star of the show). I picked up the color using the same MAC 213 Fluff Blush and then sprayed the brush with Fix + before placing on my lid. Spraying with Fix+ gives the color extra intensity and staying power. Of course, once you've applied all of your color make sure to blend, blend, blend (I suggest MAC's 224 Tapered Blending Brush) so that you don't have any harsh lines in your crease. Lastly, I took Rock Candy and placed it underneath my brows for a lifted effect, making sure to blend it downwards (use a clean brush for this).

As for my eyeliner, I used KatVonD's liquid liner in Tattoo and my favorite mascara from Too Faced, Better Than Sex (try it!). Important! Once I finish my eyeliner I use makeup remover to get rid of all the eye shadow that has fallen under my eyes or my liner. I use a q-tip to make sure my cat eye is perfectly straight and even. I then apply all of my other makeup.

I hope this was helpful and I hope you give this palette a try! If nothing else, the packaging is absolutely delicious :). And I love that it's small enough to make traveling with it easy.
