Too Faced | Passport to Bronze

Header-Passport-to-BronzeGuys, even before moving to California I had a love for bronzers. I probably know more about bronzers than anything else makeup related (okay I do have to say I love my mascara’s too).

Since I’ll be flying home for Christmas and have taken a few more flights than usual with events this past year, I’ve somehow randomly became an insanely light packer when it comes to my makeup bag. I’m no pro or anything, but I do love mini-sized items not only to try out and potentially not waste my money on products I wouldn’t have enjoyed, but it also helps lighten the load and be able to cart around a smaller makeup bag.

Too-Faced-PassportI mean, look how slim it is! Sure it’s tiny — but bronzers last me for ever, anyway. So this would most definitely do you for a Christmas vacation or an extended one at that! The packaging isn’t filmsy feeling, and it clicks shut. The only thing I wish it wasn’t, was smelling like chocolate. Sure it appeals to many people but I don’t like my products smelling like food.

Too-Faced-BrushThe kit also includes a fairly decent brush, called the Teddy Bear Hair Flatbuki Brush.

Bronzed To The Bone (The Healthy Way!)

Bronzed-to-BoneI can’t help but want to have a bit of a warm glow to my skin, nearly year round. I tend to self-tan pretty regularly come the warmer months, and on top of that I want my skin to look healthy and sun-kissed.

Although, drinking water and eating your veggies are a no brainer to healthy skin — I still wanted to show you a Bronzed To The Bone type of look with some new limited edition summer products recently launched by bareMinerals, called Lovescape. I’ve been playing around with and enjoying them for the past few weeks so I thought I’d share a favourite look I’ve been wearing.

Please let me know if you’d rather this type of post, or a more detailed style (like this one)! Just trying something new here on the ol’ blog :)BronzedToBone-side

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

Sweet-Peach-headerSummer is creepin’ up on us and I can only imagine being bronzed to the bone, with the help of the new Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. It will help create a stunning warm yet natural bronzed look to your skin. I’m so excited to use this!

Sweet-Peach-PaletteIt’s no surprise that the new Too Faced Sweet Peach palette sold out immediately. Beauty blogger friends in both the USA and Canada have and are having a tough time getting it in their hands.

TooFacedSweetPeach-PaletteNow this palette has my attention with the orangey warm shades, since it will bring out the bright blue eyes (ahem, basically made for me!). I think it’d look extra lovely on brown eyes as well. Too Faced are always so innovative with their cutesy packaging and scented products. It’s like scratch and sniff stickers, but in eyeshadow palettes for makeup lovers. Realistically, it’s such a novelty product, because what on earth is the point of having a scented eyeshadow? There’s no point, but it’s all in good fun, really. And I think it’s something completely different that the brand is doing — it’s making them stand out. Not only because of the scent, but because of the beautiful tones in all the palettes they create, along with the soft and cream texture. Not to mention the insane pigmentation of it!

Too Faced had come out with chocolate scented bronzers and eyeshadow palettes in the past, and their second newest edition being the peanut butter and jelly. But if you know anything about me at all, those two scents just don’t jive with  me. Finally, something fresh is out for the fruit and citrus loves.

Sweet-Peach-openHey, what’s up hello beautiful beautiful peachy palette.

Sweet-Peach-allOh hello gorgeous warm shades.

Getting into the finer details, the tin is in a playful pink/orange ombre tin packaging with 18 colours to create the look you

The palette has a mix of peaches, warm pinks, corals, champagne, and bronzed tones with a few other colours,  (Bless Her Heart is a gorgeous olive green) along with some purples and deeper colours to create a more dramatic eye look. All of these colours from this palette are versatile and easy to wear, and there isn’t a ton of overly shimmer in the shadows. For someone that doesn’t have a huge collection of eyeshadows, this one is fantastic as it has easy to wear neutral shades that have a bit of warmth to it. I wouldn’t be surprised if I didn’t ever reach for the deeper shades (both purples and the dark brown), since I’m not into wearing anything too dark on my lids.
