Can you believe it’s almost Valentine’s Day?! I swear this year totally crept up on me. How many of you have already gotten your presents ready? I’m definitely still working on mine but for today I wanted to share with you a couple of Valentine’s Day worth looks using the Too Faced White Peach Palette!
If you’ve seen my previous eye looks using the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette, I like to create unique looks but are still wearable for every day! I know most people don’t use 10 different shades in an every day look, so I wanted to create ideas that are very wearable. I also have two new tricks that are especially for Asian eyes that I’ll be incorporating!
For this look, I wanted to play up the pink for Valentine’s day, add a little glitter and incorporate my latest trick for making your crease stand out!
To start, I used Peach Smoothie all over my lid and brought it above my crease. I used a clean brush to just buff out the edges. Then I patted Glistening Peach underneath the area below the crease. I had to use some setting spray and dip my brushes into it in order to get it to the intensity I want. Lastly is my newest trick! Use On the Grill along the crease line to deepen your crease with a liner or a detailer brush. It looks a little dumb when your eyes are closed but when you open your eyes, your double eyelid will look much more pronounced and defined!
For my second look, I wanted to play up the assortment of peach shades in the palette. I started with Peach Suede in the middle 1/3 of the lid. Then I used Sweet Fig on the outer 1/3 of the lid. Lastly I did Peaches & Dreams in inner 1/3. You’ll have to go back into each shade a couple of times to reach a good intensity and have a smooth blend but distinct colors! Then my new trick is to line your bottom lash line slightly lower than where your actual water line is. I used On the Grill on the bottom lash line and I start my color in more of a straight shape than curving it up along my natural waterline.
In the photo above, closer to the outer corner of my bottom lash, you can see the liner shade starts a couple mm below my actual waterline. When you stand a bit further back, this helps your eye look bigger as it tricks your eye into thinking where you put the liner is where your waterline starts!
I’ll end off the post with a mini review of the palette so you can see all the shades in action! The White Peach palette has 12 shades in both matte and shimmer formulas. Most of the shades are in the light range. I love orange/purple shadows so the color scheme is right up my alley! I do wish there were slightly deeper midtone shades as I find a few of them are too light and gives a slight ashy look. There are only two dark shades in the palette, On the Grill (matte charcoal), and Peachy Passion (mine’s shattered but it’s a glittery navy purple)
All of the matte shades are incredibly soft! I do find the pigmentation on these to be less than some of the other palettes like the Sweet Peach palette. My favorite shade is Glistening Peach and it reminds me of Bellini from the Sweet Peach palette. What I do like about this palette is that the shades are actually inspired by peaches and offer a different combination than what’s currently on the market. I’m really excited to use this in the summer time as I love an all coral look on the eyes, cheeks and lips!
What I think this would also be great for is if you need a simple look using one shade. If you have light skin tone, you can easily use Peach Suede, Peach Sorbet, Peach Smoothie, or Sweet Fig all over the lid. I wish I had the Peach Passion shade as I think that would help create a very different look in comparison to all the lighter shades. I would agree that the White Peach Palette is better for light-medium skin tones but I don’t think every eyeshadow palette has to universally flatter everyone.
I hope you liked my looks and that it inspired you for your Valentine’s day makeup. Also if you have Asian eyes, let me know if my two tricks worked on your eye shape! I’m so happy to have received this palette so I’ll keep experimenting and if I come up with something great, I’ll be sure to share on Instagram!
