Almost every year I go to the Dominican Republic to visit my family. My cousins always have the brightest and coolest makeup from blues, bright greens and oranges on their lids, combined with a vibrant red lip. They don't care. They love taking risks with their makeup. Normally, my makeup is pretty mellow. I usually stick to neutrals, golds, purples, copper or brown on the lids but for the last two months, I've really been switching it up. For some reason this year, I seem to be changing my look. On Friday, i'm going to add some highlights to my dark hair (why the heck not???). And lately, I've really been experimenting with bright eyeshadows too. One palette that I am def taking with me when I head to DR is the new Too faced Summer Eye Palette. The packaging itself is beautiful, and check out the gorgeous shadows:

I love that Too Faced always includes How To cards with their palettes. Not every gal is good with makeup, and may not have any idea what to do with these shadows:
Here are swatches of the first row
|From Left to Right: Sugar Sand (a shimmery dusty rose) Plumeria (Vivid Pink) Cocoa Beach (Plum Brown Shimmer)|
|From Left to Right: Peach Fuzz (Golden Peach), Coral Crush (Coral Pink Shimmer) Chocolate Sun (Shimmery Rich Brown)|
|From left to right: Sunbeam (Gold Shimmer) Mermaid (muted teal) Toasted Coconut (matte caramel)|
In terms of pigment, with the exception of sunbeam, I found these shadows to be very pigmented, they blend extremely well together, and I was pretty surprised with the little amount of fall-out they had . Yesterday Mr. Milly came back from a 9 day business trip. I wanted to make sure I looked cute when he came so I used the third row of shadows. That Mermaid color looks so beautiful on brown eyes. I love it.
I had programed my camera to take pics every 10 seconds while I modeled the look. (I got the look from the Fashion How-to card), and it caught my smile when Mr Milly came home. Like I told you last week, smile at your partner when they walk in the door. It makes a difference.
Do you like the summer Eye palette?
How would you rock the shadows?
Do you smile at your partner when they come home?
