So, if you haven’t already heard of the new Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette, then you are missing out! It launched on 2/28/15 and quickly became a favorite of many. Inspired by, of course, peanut butter and jelly, it even smells like the tasty snack! Filled with 9 beautiful warm toned shades, 4 matte shadows, 2 satin shadows and 3 shimmery shadows. What is nice is that mixed in with the warm tones is a nice pop of color! This palette is limited edition though, so if it is a type of palette you are wanting to try you’ll have to buy one before they’re all gone!
If you have heard of this palette already, then you’ve probably already seen a hundred tutorials and though many of them look similar, don’t be fooled. This palette is extremely versatile! You can create a warm, smokey look with the darker shades, or you can create a bright, everyday look with a pop of color! That is the type of tutorial I will be showing you here. A warm, semi-smokey look with a bright pop of color! This will only be an eye look tutorial, if you want details on how to create a flawless full face look, see my previous tutorial.
First off you’ll want to cleanse, moisturize and prime your face with you favorite products. Now onto the eyes. First I primed my eyes with MAC Paint Pot in the color Soft Ochre. Lightly dust a translucent shade over the Soft Ochre to set it so it won’t crease. Next, I took the shade Peanut Butter, from the palette with a fluffy crease brush, applied that shade into my crease in windshield swiper motions. Concentrating most of the pigment on the outer corner to build a smokier look.
Underneath that shade, I applied the color Nuts About U, to my lid to deepen the crease color. Concentrate this color mostly on the outer and inner corners leaving the middle blank and open. Next, with flat synthetic hair brush, I spritzed the brush with a little bit of MAC Fix+ and applied the color, Peanut Brittle, to the entire lid. Dampening your brush first will make the color appear more metallic and have a more dramatic finish.
I took a clean, fluffy blending brush to blend all the colors, angling my hand above eye level so I wouldn’t smudge any of the colors. I blended the shimmery shade outwards towards the corners to even out the look and make sure there weren’t any harsh lines. Next, I took the color Extra Creamy, and applied it to highlight my brow bone, and the inner corner of my eye.
Now, to create the smokey shadow underneath my eye, I took a small, pencil brush and applied the bright color Jelly, very lightly just along my lower lash line. I blended that color out so it wouldn’t appear so harsh. With a small liner brush I also took the color Jammin’, and tight lined my water line just to add a little dimension.
To finish off the eye, I added a winged liner to my eye. This is an optional step, if you’re comfortable with doing a winded liner, then by all means, wing it out! However, if you’re not comfortable with a liquid winged liner, then you can just take an angled liner brush and some black eyeshadow and smudge it along your lash line. Since I already have lash extensions applied to my natural lashes, I don’t use any mascara or false lashes, but now would be the time for you to do that step. Take whatever mascara is your favorite and plump up those lashes! Depending on your level of drama, you can add false lashes or not- totally up to you! Since the shadows in this palette are on the warmer side, I would suggest you use a warmer toned bronzer to add some of that warmth into your face and tie the whole look together. And since I used the purple pop of color underneath my eye, I also used a purple liquid lipstick too for the look because, well why not! I used the color Vintage from Anasatsia Beverly Hills.
This is how my look turned out!
