One of the reasons why I am always recommending palettes to people is that it makes it so much easier to throw together a perfect look in a short amount of time. I can become paralyzed by indecision when I am looking at a lineup of all my single eyeshadows, because really, who wants to think that early in the morning?
So I wanted to put something together fast yesterday, as I had a meeting in the evening, and I spent the afternoon at the beach. As I was scrambling to get showered, dressed, and out the door on time, I reached into my closet and just grabbed one of my palettes. Here is the super quick and easy look I came up with.
The Smoky Eye Kit by Too Faced is a great basic palette that will give you professional results quickly. I used the top three brown colors, the largest pan as the base, the medium brown on the entire lid, and the darkest brown on the crease.
Then I decided that it needed a little something. Some pop of color, something. So I grabbed my Jade Way MAC Technakohl liner and lined my upper and lower lids as well as the waterline. I then applied three coats of It Curl Mascara by Flirt! Cosmetics.
