"Jelly" featuring TooFaced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette
Ok, this palette is stunning! For anyone that has had any of the scented Too Faced eyeshadow palettes, you already know how amazing they are, but if you haven't had the opportunity to get your hands on one of these palettes, you should! They blend like a dream, have impeccable pigmentation and smell delicious! So needless to say, this palette did not disappoint! The first color that stood out to me was of course Jelly and thus, this look was created. The entire look was made using this palette with the exception of the primer and eyeliner. So, without further ado, if you'd like to recreate this look then keep on readin'!
I started out priming my eyes using Maybelline's Color Tattoo in "Painted Purple", I LOVE the Maybelline color tattoos. I applied this using a synthetic flat shader brush and made sure to blend out the edges.
Using the same flat shader brush, I applied "Jelly" on top of the "Painted Purple" primer. I like to pat this on the lid as opposed to swiping the color on, as this provides for better color payoff.
Next I applied "Peanut Brittle" to the crease with a pencil brush and made sure to extend it past the crease to create a bit of a cat eye extension.
I then took "Spread the Love" on a blending brush and blended out "Peanut Brittle" using small circular and windshield wiper motions. I am not a fan of a harsh edges, so I make sure to take my time with this step. You really want to see a seamless transition of colors, I periodically apply more of the blending shade to the brush, but try not to do this too often as sometimes the color can get a bit out of control and end up closer to the brow bone than is preferred. So again, take your time, work in small motions and keep working at it.
Once the amount of blending desired is achieved, you can move onto the next portion. I took "Jammin' " on a pencil brush, I like using a pencil brush because of the amount of precision I get with it. I add this to the outer v (the imaginary v shape that forms when connecting the crease and outer lash corner to forming a v)
I blend out "Jammin' " with "Peanut Brittle" on a fluffy shadow brush, you want to make sure to isolate this just slightly above"Jammin".
I also brought "Peanut Brittle" to the lower lash line applying it to the first and last third of the lash line with a pencil brush, leaving the center empty.
In the middle of those two colors, apply "Jelly". Now for the lower lash line, you could apply the Maybelline Color Tattoo. I have to say, I enjoyed the more pastel look without that primer, as I felt it added another variation of color, which in my opinion, added some additional interest.
I blended out the lower lash line with a blending brush using "Spread the Love". You can extend the blend (love how that rhymes, lol) of the lower lash line as far as you would like (in moderation). I don't mind letting it extend a bit lower than most because I love dramatic looks, but of course this is all left to preference.
I then applied a dark purple eyeliner in a wing formation on the top lash line, you could of course use black or brown if you'd like, but again this adds some interest and dramaaa *snaps fingers in the air*. I also applied it to the waterline, be very careful with this step because you will get very close to your eyeball and we don't want any injuries from a makeup look!
I mixed "Extra Creamy" and "Bananas" together to make the inner corner and brow bone highlight.
I then used Too Faced "Better Than Sex" mascara, I got this as a sample when I bought the palette and really liked it! I have noticed other mascaras, such as Revlon 5-in-1 mascara provide better length (see my review HERE), but was still impressed with it.
And here it is! the final look! I truly hope you enjoyed this look, please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!
