The Too Faced Stardust eyeshadow palette may come with only 12 shades, but the looks you can create are endless!
To start off this look, apply your favorite foundation and concealer as you normally would. A trick to brighten up the under eye area is to use a lighter, loose powder and “bake” it. To do this, you pack loose powder under your eyes for a few minutes before lightly brushing it away.
After applying foundation and ‘baking’ your concealer, move on to your highlight and contour.
To contour, take a brown matte shadow that works with your skin tone. You want to enhance the features you already have.
After contouring, now it's time to highlight.
Some highlighters are golden-based, while others are pink or white-based. A quick tip to knowing which one will work on you is to know what undertones are in your skin. Dust the highlighter on the peak of your cheekbones, below the bridge of your eyebrow, down the center of the nose, and in the cupid’s bow.
The Stardust palette is great for creating a matching eye look. For the eyes, start off with a medium brown as your base shade in the crease and outer V. The neutral hue will complement all eye colors. Then go in with a shimmery bronze shade in the middle of the lid and blend into the crease. Add a white, sparkly shade in the inner corner to act as an eye highlight and brighten up the eyes. Next place a little dark brown shadow on the outer V to darken up the look. Don’t forget to blend!
After that, your look is complete. Add mascara and eyeliner, and you're ready to be a shining bronze goddess!
