Too Faced Chocolate Bar – Warm Wintery Makeup!

Hey lovelies!

What an inspiring color of the year 2015 of Marsala and in my previous post I mentioned on recreating a new eye makeup look inspired by this neutral color of red-wine? I’m thrilled to do this new look and I put in some of the steps below in case you feel inspired too!

For this eye makeup look, I used the Too Faced Chocolate bar eyeshadow palette which I purchased online. I did my review in my earlier posting.

Let me introduce you to this pretty Too Faced Chocolate Bar eyeshadow palette. It’s made with 100% natural cocoa.

I prepped my eyes with Lorac mini behind the screen primer and then started with Strawberry bon bon on the lids.

Then I applied with the Cherry Cordial on crease of my eyes. I creased it until I got the shade that I like.

Next, I used Amaretto to blend on the crease and lower lash line like so.

Lastly, I finished it up with by going ahead to applying the Marzipan on the center of my eye lids to make eyes pop.

I added another eyelook with a touch of Candid Violet to reflect back the color pantone of year 2014. Violet orchid has been with us for the past one year and it has been tremendous joy to be able for me to play with so many beautiful fun colors of the violet shades.

As the new year is here and Marsala is on the list, I’m celebrating it with a pang of joy!

For those of you who are celebrating Christmas, I wish you a blessed Christmas and Happy Holidays to many with many cheers!

Thank you for taking the time to read 🙂
