I did a shimmery smokey eye look with my Too Faced Natural at Night Palette a few months ago and one of my Twitter followers suggested I do a more toned down version. I tried it out and loved it so much it’s become my go-to routine when I need to get ready in a hurry. That’s why this look is perfect for back-to-school. It’s light, simple and doesn’t take much time to apply.
I love the eye makeup because it only takes three shadows to create and the light shimmer makes the eyes look wider and more awake.

Since I got this palette I’ve been mixing, matching and coming up with all sorts of lovely, natural looks. This is the first of what i’m sure will turn out to be many tutorials using this amazing product. It’s hands down the best palette I’ve gotten in a long while – check out the tutorial below to see why!

I’ve been on the fence about getting this palette for a while- mainly because I had my sites set on the Naked 2 palette and couldn’t justify getting both. I’ve gone back and forth on which to get for at least a month, but then I saw Emilynoel83′s last video – a tutorial using the Natural at Night palette- and that pretty much made my decision for me.
And I’m glad to say, I have no regrets.
I paid $35 for this collection of shadows, which is pretty standard for a more high end brand. Especially considering the fancy-pants packaging the more expensive brands use. I personally love the way Too Faced packages their eyeshadow palettes because it’s compact, fits in your purse and protect your investment from breaking. Few things in this world are more frustrating than finding a shadow I love, only to have it break in my purse due to the flimsy packaging.
Now for the good stuff, the colors! This palette features three different looks: Fashion, Classic and Night. I’ve tried out all three and so far I love all of the, but the real fun will start when I start mixing and matching colors.
Another thing I love about Too Faces is how the palettes all come with these instruction cards to help you get started. It’s perfect for those who are less experience with makeup, or maybe just need a little help getting started.
This is the Night collection. From left to right, the colors are: Full moon, Nightcap, Cocoa Star.
This is the Classic collection. From left to right, the colors are: Night Light, After Hours, Eclipse.
Finally, this is the Fashion collection. Colors from left to right are: Spotlight, Moon Stone and Night Fever.
So far my favorite is the Night look, which I’m wearing right now. It’s still early and I’ve already gotten a ton of compliments on my eyeshadow, which is great cuz it distracts my co-workers from the bad hair day I’m having. So far, I think I made the right choice in going for the Naked at Night palette – and I saved myself $15 since the Naked 2 palette is going for $50!
