3 looks 1 palette (featuring too faced then + now eyeshadow palette)


There are no limits to creativity. Especially when it comes to eyeshadow palettes! There are countless ways to mix and match colours to create head-turning look after head-turning look. Though some palettes are a little more limiting (due to poor variety or limited shade selection), the Too Faced Then & Now eyeshadow palette has plenty of options. From soft mattes to neutrals and colourful glitters...it was a lot of fun playing around with the different shades inside. Which is what inspired today's blog post as part of Too Faced week here on the creation of beauty is art. Since I have been using this palette an awful lot lately, I wanted to show some of the more recent looks I've created with it. Here are 3 looks featuring 1 high-end eyeshadow palette.


Look #1: Fall Inspired Purples



The first look pictured is actually one of my favourites. I paired "I Can't Even" with "Dirt Bag" to create the smokey warm effect going on around the crease. Then I added "Shady Bitch" (that amazing glittery purple) all over the lid. The combination of the darker warm tones with that vibrant purple was beautiful. And to really give this look a fall finish, I added one of my all-time favourite fall lip colours - "Squash" by Lime Crime. 


Look #2: Soft and Romantic 




This next makeup look is decidedly softer and more appropriate for daytime. It features "Gretchen" and "Rizzo" (a couple of soft browns), as well as "Zsa Zsa" (a soft pink) and "Ahh" (a pretty silver). That romantic pink was placed all over the lid with the soft browns adding definition to the crease. "Ahh" was placed directly in the inner corner to create a subtle pop. The lips were left neutral to add a more wearable finish to this makeup look.


Look #3: Pretty in Pink



Now this last look was created for a specific reason. Earlier this month, it was Mean Girls Day. Since it fell on a Wednesday, pink makeup was an absolute necessity. A few friends and I went out to see the movie in theaters and we absolutely dressed the part! For this makeup look, I paired "Zsa Zsa" and "Reality Star," those gorgeous pink shades in the palette. Then there was "Villain" (a purple colour) in the crease and a bit of "Ooh La La" in the inner corner. A pink lip gloss from Gerard Cosmetics finished it all off.

See? There are many different ways to use the Too Faced Then & Now eyeshadow palette. These examples are only the tip of the iceberg. If you have the palette in your own collection...share your favourite colour combinations in the comment section below. And be sure to let me know what you think of these three makeup looks!
