What Makeup? A Review Of Too Faced's No Makeup Makeup Palette
Published Feb 25, 2013
We recently offered you a preview of the Spring collection by our cosmetic BFF, Too Faced, but there was one piece in particular that we feel deserves some extra attention— The Secret To No Makeup Makeup palette. The six-pan kit contains a perfectly-sized portion of everything you need for a high-maintenance approach to a low-maintenance look. We’re talking bare-faced beauty at it’s best.
The pretty-in-pink tin box, similar to the previously released Natural Face palette, contains concealer and brightener for use under and around the eyes as well as the corners of the nose and mouth (not to mention, to hide any blemishes).
It also holds a pink-toned luminizer for highlighting the brow bones and the bridge of the nose.
A light powder-based bronzer is included to contour some bare-faced bone structure for yourself, or you can brush the bronzer lightly over the nose and apples of cheeks for a sunkissed glow that looks au naturel.
Finally the box has two pink blushes in both cream and powder formula to give you a perky, just-pinched look. This truly is a naked palette.
What we love best about No Makeup Makeup is how user-friendly the set is. Jerrod Blandino recommends slipping this kit in your overnight bag, and using your fingers to dab the creamy formulas on before crawling back into bed with your sweetie for ‘the morning after’. They’ll wonder how it is you woke up looking so radiant! Alternately, smudge these nearly-nude shades on before facing a no-makeup rule at work or at school. This would also be a safe bet for a first makeup kit for youngsters who desire nothing more than a bit of cover up and a rosy glow. The box even contains a how-to guide with three looks to get you started.
In conclusion, we’re loving this new kit. Bare has never felt more beautiful.
