Peachy Keen Eye Tutorial Using Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

Last week I put this peachy look together specifically to show you how the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette works, and so you can see how poppin’ those peach shades really can be! I had a lot of fun putting this look together though I was fairly tired after a long work week with 10 hour shifts, and taking care of a teething child. You can see it in my eyes, or at least I can, and there isn’t any concealer in the world that was going to hide it! I digress though, lets get into the look.

First things first I did my face like I usually do. I won’t bore you with all the details but I did use my Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Porcelain, Loreal Magic Lumi Concealer in Fair, and I set everything with the Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear Correcting Powder.

Next I did my brows. I used the Colourpop Eyebrow Pencil in Bangin’ Brunette. I don’t love this pencil, which is crazy because I usually love everything Colourpop. It is just a bit too soft, but it works well enough and I bought it so I might as well use it. I doubt I will repurchase though, unless they change the formula. I set my brows with the Chella Brow Gel.

Now it is onto the eyes for me. I used the Wet ‘N’ Wild Fergie Eye Primer to prime my entire lid, up into the crease, and slightly above it. This primer is really sticky and gives great color, but it can make it hard to blend some shadows, especially mattes. In particular my Stila palette hates this primer but overall the Too Faced shadows worked well with it.

After I primed both lids I went into the crease and slightly above with Puree and blended it until it was smooth. I did a few layers to get a bit of a darker color on there.

Next I took Just Peachy and packed it on all over my lid. This is one of my favorite colors in the palette, a pretty pink and gold shifting shimmer.

I then worked Candied Peach into the outer corner and up into the crease. You can’t see it well but this is a matte pink shade with chunky magenta/purple glitters in it. The glitters do transfer onto the eye, but not such an overload that you’re eye feels bedazzled.

Then to add some depth I put Peach Pit into the crease and really spent a lot of time making sure that was blended in really nicely. I didn’t really need to blend as much as I did but I always get paranoid that I won’t blend enough and then end up going overboard. There was some fallout with this color so I went back onto my lid with Just Peachy and Candied Peach to clean up any areas that had darkened.

After I added black liner to my tight line and waterline. I used the NYC Color Cityproof 24 Hour Liner in Black. Once this was done I added Delectable to my lower lash line and took it down a bit to add another little pop of color, something different from the peach shades.

Now to finish the look I just needed to add some mascara and brow bone highlight. Keeping it in the family I used the new Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara, which I love. I adore waterproof mascaras and have been waiting for this to come out because it is my Holy Grail mascara. The only thing with the Better Than Sex Mascaras is that they’re a little watery at first. Once they’ve had a month to dry a little they really are perfection, at least for me. And that is not something I often say about mascara.

I then added White Peach to my brow bone to complete my eye look.

After my eyes were done I just needed to finish my face and add some lips. I used Colourpop Bronzer in Bon Voyage to contour my cheeks. These bronzer’s are not easy to work with but I like that they’re more subtle than other bronzers on my pale skin, so I am willing to put the time in to get them on.

Next I added blush. I used The Balm Don’t You Want Me from The Balm Jovi Palette.

And lastly to complete the face I added highlighter. My go to highlighter right now to be exact. The Balm Solid Gold which is also from The Balm Jovi Palette. If you want to know more about the versatility and ease of travel that comes with this palette I wrote all about it in my March Favorites post.

Finally I just needed to add lipstick. I had a hard time deciding what to do with my lips. I didn’t want anything too vibrant, as I wanted the focus to be on my eyes but I didn’t want to do a nude either. After a lot of hemming and hawing I went with Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Americano. It has color but it is neutral enough that it isn’t the main focus of this look.

Here is the finished look (though my hair was still out of control!)

I know I said it in the review, but I am really loving this palette. I find myself reaching for it daily since I got it. Whether it is to do a complete look like this, or it is just to add a pop of peach or purple to a look, or grab a neutral to add to my crease for a transition. It really does have it all.
