A Sexy Summer Shadow Look with Too Faced

When I think 'summer shadows', I gravitate towards champagne and gold aka the lazy lady shades! I think because our festive season in Australia is so hot it is easy to embrace these flattering shades, but I decided to use my favourite shades from the Too Faced Sexy Summer Shadows palette instead to create a makeup look.

I dipped my brush into the beautiful satin Toasted Coconut and blended it on the whole lid, before buffing the edges with a floppy brush to soften the edges. I'd probably take the shadow a little higher next time, but I wasn't intending on using this for a blog post so I was just playing around with the colours. I used Seashell to highlight my brow bone, as I thought the glitter in Peach Fuzz and Sunbeam were a little too much for a look like this.
I then took the beautiful deep teal Mermaid and dragged it along the outer third of my lower lash line, and it came out a lot darker on the eye than it appears in the pan as I mentioned in my last post. I am really getting into wearing colours on the lower lash line, and I think it is perfect for the upcoming summer as it is a quick and easy way to create a fun look that is low maintenance. I'm also pretty obsessed with lining my upper lash line (pencil or liquid) so I'll have to share my liner loves with you soon.

I can't remember exactly what I had on my lips for this look, I have a feeling it was a Sportsgirl gloss (I adore them!) but I didn't jot down the products as I made up my face - how frustrating! 
What do you think of this easy summer shadow look?
What colours do you like wearing on your lower lash line?

  1. I love that palette. I've had my eyes on it since last year ( i think thats how long its been out), I remember seeing it on other popular beauty gurus site and i just love the mix of browns with the teal, pink and orange! I've had chances to order but I've got other things in my priority list. I like your hint of teal, very summery and very fun!

    1. It is such a pretty palette, and quite different for the brand too. It has been out for quite a while now, I'm glad I managed to get my hands on it in time for summer :)

  5. A lovely look! Toasted coconut sounds delicious. I like wearing dark blue or purple on the lower lash line.
