Good morning Beauties!
Well, it’s Monday. If you are anything like me, you might have woken up this morning and wondered how you were going to get out of your bed, let alone do your makeup. (Maybe that’s just me?)
To make your life a little easier this week, I decided to round up a collection of my favorite Too Faced’s Chocolate Bar Tutorials.
You might be thinking, “Rebs, it is Monday and you are telling me about a $50 palette, I can not handle this.”
Don’t worry, I’ve got a way to get the Chocolate Bar for $20 off, too! Just grab some coffee and start your week off on the right foot with me!
I’m not going to waste too much time with a review about the Chocolate Bar other than to say it is my favorite palette. (We’re talking it beats Urban Decay Nakeds, Lorac Pro Palette, and theBalm’s Nude Tude). If you are wondering which palette to splurge on, this is the one I would pick.
There are 16 beautiful, pigmented colors that are long lasting and blend easily. I also like the variety of colors available, a good mix of nudes, purples, mattes and shimmers. Also bonus: the case is pretty durable, (and cute.) I think it was well worth the $30 I paid for it when I pretended it was a birthday gift from Mr. Danger.
Also it smells like chocolate. Mini-review over. I just dropped the mic and walked away.
So how did I get it for $20 bucks off? Super easy. If you are a new customer to HSN.com, you can use the code 20NEWSUMMER to get $20 off any order. If you use it on a Too Faced product, they also offer free shipping.
If you aren’t a new customer, I would beg a friend or family member to buy it for you. And then maybe allow them to smell your new Chocolate Bar Palette as thanks for their help.
I just made your Monday better? Maybe a little?
Now for a week’s worth of looks, I have posted links to my favorite Chocolate Bar Tutorials below! I’ve tested and tried everyone of these tutorials and can assure you, even a makeup newbie can handle them. (Just don’t blend out too much-I always do!)
If you don’t have the Chocolate Bar Palette, many of these looks can be done with whatever nude and purple matte and shimmer eye shadows you have on hand.
Disclosure: I am not affiliated with any of these bloggers, I just have unending gratitude towards them for providing helpful tutorials!
This is a lovely tutorial by the one of the best, EmilyNoel83. This look is shimmery, pretty, and great for everyday.
So you guys know I’m all about more bang for my buck. Naturally, I can’t resist this video by Bailey B from Making up the Midwest. She shows you 3 easy and different looks, so you’re bound to find one that will meet your Chocolate Bar needs.
CoffeeBreakwithDani has a super easy tutorial to get a smoky brown eye that would be great for work. She also has a several other videos in her Chocolate Bar series, if you’re looking for a different look! And she loves coffee, a lady after my own heart.
Are you ready for some color now? I love TiffanyD’s purple eye look in this tutorial. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to make the beautiful purples in the palette work without looking like a My Little Pony, and this is perfect.
I also enjoy this cool toned smokey eye from TheBubbleGumPrincess. This is a fairly easy look and the purple is subtle enough I could wear it to work.
Finally, Too Faced also created 6 additional looks that I’ve worked through. (You can find these here.)
My personal favorites are Salty and Sweet and Cocoa Kitten. Whenever I wear these looks I get compliments on my eye makeup and I pretend that I just came up with it on my own. It’s the perfect crime.
So I hope this list can get you up and running on a Monday morning, (or any morning, if you are like me.)
