Believe or not, the first time I ever heard of a Sephora or Ulta was after I graduated high school. Before that, the only place I purchased cosmetics was from Wal-Mart (not that there is anything wrong with that). I just had no idea how much variety and how large make-up selection really was. I starting getting into make-up shortly after entering college, and I am still sorting my way through the multitudes of products out there. But, recently, I found something that I just had to share.
One of the largest categories of cosmetics and the toughest area to be knowledgeable in is eye shadow. Honestly, it’s just hard to find things that work for you without a lot of leg work. I just wanted something I could use everyday. Something relatively neutral.
Enter the Too Faced Naked Eye Kit. It comes with 9 neutral eye shadows to complete three different looks that range from subtle to smokey. With the kit, also comes instructional cards with tutorials on how to complete the three looks. One of my favorite things about this palette are the names of the shadows. Some of my favorites: lap dance, stiletto, and birthday suit!
The pay-off of the shadows are really great and the best thing about neutral shades is that they really do compliment all skin tones. The kit contains both matte and satin shades.
I tried out the three specific looks this past week to show you how it looked.
The “Day” Look
Obviously, this look is the most neutral of the three.
I primed my lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion and used a NYX Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil in Milk for the corners of my eyes to make the white stand out.
“The Classic Look”
Again, I used the same primer and eye shadow pencil to start. This look is unique because of the satin pink shade (appropriately named “satin sheets”) on the lid. Another “day-time” look that has a little something extra
“The Fashion Look:”
Once more, I started with Primer Potion but no eye pencil this time. This is the darkest and smokiest of the looks and I love it! I actually used this for Halloween. Throw on some fake lashes and you are ready to knock ’em dead.
So, all in all, I am in love with this product. The colors are gorgeous and it gives a perfect neutral look every time. And with names like “unmentionables” and “pillow talk”, how could you not be smitten?
On a side note, I felt so funny taking these “myspace” pictures that I just had to finish it up with a duck face!!! You gotta love it.
