Happy Friday! Today I thought it would be fun to share with you a couple of looks I’ve did recently with the Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette. I’m gonna be honest, I did do an additional look and completely forgot to take a picture of it, but the next time I use this palette I’ll recreate the look and put it on Instagram. That being said, let’s get into it.
The first look we have is something I did based off of a couple different looks I saw on Pinterest. The first thing I did was prime my face using the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This is one of my favorite primers and it gives a great glow under foundation. Then I went in with my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory. I applied my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory under my eyes and a few other places and set my face with the KVD Lock-It Translucent setting powder.
For the rest of my face I went in first with the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer, then I applied the Model Co blush in Peach Bellini and I topped it off with the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.
When it came to my eyes I wanted to do something I hadn’t done before and I’m super happy with the way this came out. The first thing I did was prime my eyes with the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went in to the Cocoa Blend palette and the first shadow I used is Substitute For Love. This is a lighter brown and I lightly applied that in the crease. Then I went in with Freshly Toasted, a rusty matte brown and lightly applied that in the crease as well. Then to build some depth I did a light layer of Beans Are White, a matte black that isn’t too deep and when you do a little amount like I did the gray in it comes through. On the outer corner of my eye and about halfway on the lid I applied Warm Notes which is berry-ish sparkly pink, a really pretty shadow. Then on the other half of my lid I applied Bitter Start which is a light matte nude. I lined my eyes using the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped off the eyes using the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. I wanted a nude lip, so I went in first with the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner then used the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Muneca and I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I will say that I messed up my swatches because I was trying to do them lightly and they ended up looking weird.
The second look is actually the first one I did when I got the palette and I’ve done a few times since because it’s so good. The first thing I did was prime my face using the First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Pores Be Gone Matte Primer. Then I went in with my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, applied my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory and set it with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper.
For the rest of my face I first went in with the Benefit Hoola bronzer, then I applied the Too Faced Daydreamer blush and topped it off with the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.
For my eyes I first primed them with the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. The first shadow I used from the Cocoa Blend palette was Substitute For Love and I put that in the crease. Then on the outer corner and in the crease a bit I pack on Freshly Toasted. On the rest of my lid I applied Pure Ganache, this is such a gorgeous shadow. It’s a sparkly copper and it’s super pigmented. It might be my favorite shadow in the palette. I lined my eyes with the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner and topped off the eyes with the Benefit BADgal Bang! mascara. I wanted a neutral/brown lip so I first lined my lips with the Beauty Vaulte Lip Liner in Kozy Kira then applied the Too Faced Peach Kiss Comfort Matte Long Wear Lipstick in the shade Sex On The Peach. I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I did almost forget to take a picture of this look so I grabbed the one that was on my Insta Story so ignore the random caption.
That about wraps it up for this post, if any of you guys have the Cocoa Blend palette I’d love to know what your favorite look is that you’ve created with it.
Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).
