Makeup by Marla: Just peachy for spring!

I am a super fan of Too Faced cosmetics, therefore I am thrilled about the reissue of their once limited edition Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette as it is, So Perfect for Spring!  This is the fourth in the line of this company's renowned scented eyeshadow palettes . Each color is rich, creamy, pigmented and blends like a charm. The palette features 16 shades, with choices of mattes and shimmers, each given “oh so cute” peach related monikers.

Not only does this palette feature beautiful and blendable peach and complementary hues, but it has the added bonus of being infused with a delicious peach scent. This collection is perfect for all warm toned eyeshadow lovers and allows you to complete a fabulous look without reaching for any other complementary palettes.

My suggested drama/glam-a nighttime look:

After using an eye primer (I recommend Too Faced "Shadow insurance"), I applied the shimmer beige color "Nectar" to my mid lid. In the crease I blended the matte shades "Summer Yum" and "Puree" together to create a warmer caramelized effect and worked "Talk Derby To Me", a deep chocolate brown with finely milled glitter, into the outer V corner of my eye. I added a pop of peach to mid lid using , "Just Peachy", highlighted my brow bone and inner tear duct area with the shade "White Peach" and after dampening my angled brush with some Fix Plus by M.A.C.,  tight lined my lower lash line using the shade "Charmed, I'm Sure". It is important not to be too heavy-handed with this last shade as it is highly pigmented, you want to smoke it out and a little goes a long way!  As well, remember that with any shadow look it is super important to achieve  a gradient effect between hues as opposed to sharp lines.

So... blend blend blend!

Too Faced also gave us the bonus  of a host of new Sweet Peach products along with the relaunch of this eyeshadow palette.

I am particularly enamored by the peach oil infused lip gloss in the shade "Pure Peach". This gloss gives the perfect tone of Pinky Peach to the lips, is moisturizing and tastes peachy and yummylicious! The color goes perfectly with many of the trendy clothing shades for Spring  2017!

This company’s original owners Jerrod Blandimo and Jeremy Johnson have created superior cosmetics that are not tested on animals. You will surely be seeing me recommend many Too Faced products in my future blog entries due to their top quality, adorable packaging and incredible staying power.

As contouring and highlighting is all the rage, please check back here soon for my future blog entitled 'You glow girl", featuring my top picks in high and lower end highlighters.

Until then I welcome any questions or comments you may have about makeup and beauty.

Most importantly my loves , never forget you're gorgeous and Rock Your Beauty!!
