The rainy weather has not been agreeing with me lately. So when I created this look, I could not get a good photo of it and I had to film the tutorial using lights instead of the natural light coming in from my window – but nonetheless, I digress and move forward. I created this look because I haven’t had the opportunity to do any makeup tutorials using my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette and I’ve been playing around with it for a few weeks now. I used the look book included with the palette as inspiration to create this look, but I did switch it up a little. I hope you enjoy this. I thought this would be a really sweet Valentine’s Day look without being too dramatic or over the top, but definitely on the smoky side and sultry. It’s super easy to create and definitely wearable for a day or night out.

As I mentioned earlier, lighting was not ideal so I was not too happy with the photos I was able to get before the rain came down harder and the sky darkened. I take all of my photos outside in natural lighting so it was a bit of an issue, but at least I have some photos to show.
