|Too Face Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection|
Too Faced couldn't avoid clever, even salacious, names for its shadows:
Heaven (matte ivory)
Velvet Revolver (matte taupe)
Sexspresso (matte deep brown)
Silk Teddy (peach champagne shimmer)
Push-Up (light bronze shimmer)
Erotica (soft charcoal shimmer)
Nude Beach (champagne shimmer with gold glitter)
Honey Pot (gold shimmer)
Cocoa Puff (warm chocolate brown shimmer)
The kit comes in a cardboard box with a magnetic snap closure. It also features a pull-out compartment for a dual-ended brush/sponge wand. Three "how-to" cards provide instructions on creating the looks.
- Heaven may be used to create a "canvas" for applying subsequent eye shadows.
- Don't feel confined to using only the eye shadows for a particular look (Day, Classic, or Fashion). Mix it up! After I discovered how highlighters, as applied to the lid, can brighten the eyes, I use Silk Teddy on my lid.
- Can "women of a certain age" wear shimmer? It has less to do with your age, and more to do with the smoothness of your eyelid. I avoid highlighting shimmer on the inner third of the eyelid, because of the creases, and confine it to the middle third. I use a darker shimmer on the outer corner. Applying shimmer with your ring finger provides for a light touch.
There is also the Too Faced Smoky Eye Palette. The smoky eye is a perennial, but this season, I'm seeing even more attention paid to it.
