#frugalfashionista : fashion face

I’ve been eyeing the too faced chocolate bar palette since I had seen the tutorial by Marianne Ramos. But spending $50 on a palette was hard to bite on. 

This past Xmas my new boss gave me a gift card to Sephora. It was such an awesome gesture. I knew exactly what I was going to purchase with it. When I found the time I headed to Sephora and picked out my semi sweet chocolate bar palette. 

Filled with an array of fun colors and scents of subtle sweetness I was a happy customer. I even walked out with a second item of Sephora brand contour/highlighting stick seeing as I was running out of my smashbox version. 

$49 too faced palette

$20 contour/highlight duo stick

Worth the investment!

#frugalfashionista : mastering make up

Can’t get set up any better than this. Smashbox has come up with the perfect trio for contouring and highlighting. It even comes with a pencil sharpener and a little pamphlet that shows you how to do it based on your face shape!

I had help from the make up artist too and she really did a great job. So if you’re ever in the columbus area, look for Amy at sephora in jcp, Polaris!
