#onmyface Too Faced ‘Haute Cocoa’ Makeup

If you’ve been following my previous makeup posts, you already know I’m pretty obsessed with the Too Faced brand, and the Too Faced Chocolate Bar eye-shadow palette has become a staple must-have in my makeup stash.

Today I tried out the ‘Haute Cocoa’ look from the leaflet that comes with the Too Faced Chocolate Bar.

Here’s a shot of my mug this morning donning the Haute Cocoa look on my lids:

Haute Cocoa Recipe:

  • I applied the Champagne Truffle eye-shadow from the crease of the lids to the brow ine. This has quite a shimmer to it, and would be ideal for a night out (a little too loud for daytime, if applied to this entire area I think!).
  • I blended Cherry Cordial on the inner and outer corners of the lids. I love this deep burgundy shade! So perfect for fall.
  • The center of the lids were highlighted with the very shimmery gold eye-shadow called Creme Brulee. Adding a shimmery shadow to the center of the lids helps give the illusion of bigger, bolder eyes.
  • The look is finished off with sweeps of Haute Chocolate eye-shadow on the crease, and the upper and lower lash lines of the eyes.too faced chocolate bar palette tutorial haute cocoa look motd.jpg

 

I lined my eyes with Makeup Forever’s Aqua Liner in Diamond Multicolor Black. This deep black water-proof liquid liner has a gorgeous shimmer of gold that makes it just that bit more special as compared to your usual black.

I used Makeup Forever’s Aqua Brow on my brows. This helps to fill them up, and give them more shape and definition.

I finished off the eyes with Boots No7 Lash Impact mascara. An intense volume mascara like this pretty red tube can really make the eyes pop open.

On my lips, I’m wearing Makeup Forever’s Rouge Artist Intense lipstick in Satin Blackcurrant. This is a very deep shade of brown-red, and I love it for its intensity. It can be made even darker and bolder with an additional coat to give the lips a Gothic edge.

For the base, I used Makeup Forever’s Ultra HD Foundation. This genius product has to be the best foundation I’ve used till date! I contoured my face with the Too Faced Contour Kit (read more about it here), and finished off with the Too Faced Soul Mates Blushing Bronzer (read the complete review on this gorgeous two-in-one product here).

And tadaaa… here’s a close-up of the complete look sans filters:

Pretty easy-peasy, even for a makeup newbie like me 🙂

I’ve also tried the ‘Semi-Sweet’ look from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette, have a looksie here.

I love the versatility of the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. The colors are beautifully pigmented, and with some clever mixing and matching, you have enough here to take you from day to night. And did I tell you I absolutely adore that scent of cocoa?! I compared the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette to its other very popular contender, Urban Decay’s Naked palette.

Love playing with chocolate, and with Too Faced, there’s no calorie counting involved 🙂
