As I'm writing this post I realize two things: First, I am very lucky to have such an awesome husband and two, I need to learn to take better close-up pictures of my makeup. Let me explain...
This past Sunday was Mother's Day, my very first one. See, I was still pregnant with Ben this time last year so this was my first REAL Mother's Day. I was so excited to find out my hubby had not only made me breakfast, wrote in TWO cards (one from him and one from "Ben") but he had also planned a date night for just him and I. I was so full of love that whole day and out of nowhere, he surprised me with the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bon Palette I'd been eyeing for months. I'm a lucky girl!
I got all ready that day, full makeup and hair done, in anticipation of our date. I decided to use my new palette and create a look from one of the "how-to's" that accompany the palette. My choice? Sugar Smoke.
I'm always drawn to dark tones and love the way a smoky eye can look if done right. The greatest things about the "Chocolate" palettes are how easy the colors apply, how great they blend AND the smell. Seriously, I smelled like candy and chocolate the whole night. Loved it.
And here's the result WHICH you can hardly see because I am terrible with a camera. I will say that the end result was almost identical to the card and I loved feeling glamorous for the first time in a long time.
I highly recommend this palette if you don't already have it.
