Too Faced Natural Eye Rave!

After months of longing for the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette I finally got my hands on it when I received it on my birthday earlier this year, and oh my lawd is it amazing! The colours are perfect and combine together to create many gorgeous glowing looks which really flatter your complexion.

I wouldn't say that many of the colours are "natural" as the majority are very fun and shimmery, so it is probably ideal for those who love dewy looks and don't mind a little glitter fallout! Here are all the colour swatches on my arm:

As you can see the three colours at the bottom of the image are matte in contrast to the shimmery/glittery colours above. Therefore they are ideal for creating looks which are wearable during the day time and are much more suited to school and work make-up.

The palette came with a cute little pocket containing three cards showing how to create different looks combining individual eye-shadows.

 The cards show how to create a Day, Classic and Fashion smokey eye. These cards are ideal for beginners as it provides a step by step diagram on how to achieve the looks and provides an insight as to which colours work best together. Unfortunately, I haven't really taken note of them so I don't quite know which look is the most flattering but I will say that the combination of Silk Teddy and Cocoa Puff creates the perfect nude shimmery look! (with Heaven as the highlight of course) Here's a not-so-great picture of me wearing the look:

The colours are so versatile and you can create so many looks suited to different occasions and seasons. Recently I have been wearing much more copper toned colours due to it being Autumn and I find that the browns really flatter my hazel eyes:

I find that the best thing about "nude" palettes is they can flatter any eye colour and skin tone if used correctly. Therefore I would highly recommend this palette to anyone looking to create the perfect neutral shaded eye.

This was my first ever Too Faced purchase and I can honestly say that I don't know how I didn't buy any of their products sooner! I have my eye on their Natural at Night eye palette and can't wait to get a hold of it!
