Here are a couple pictures of the look::

They are very pigmented. You can get a natural look or make it more dramtic and smokey! Will post a look I did with the Natural Smokes after this! :D

A great find if you are looking for a great eyebrow pencil!!

Normally I like to use brow powder and my fave is Anastasia, but I don't like using it all the time and sometimes it is too dark if my whole face is not done as dramatically as usual. Or if I am wanting to do a more simple or natural look that day. So since I didn't want to spend another $20 on powder, I decided to give pencils another try. So I went to the store and picked up a couple from Wet-n-Wild. For on .97 cents at Walmart, I figured it wouldn't be a huge loss if they were sucktastic! But they are AMAZING!!! I would pay a lot more for them!! They bled super well and look natural. I got "Taupe" and "Mink Brown". I also picked up a Maybelline Define-a-Brow in Light Brown($6) and the Wet-n-Wild ones are much better!
Just wanted to pass this great find along to you guys!

Pictures and Swatches of Too Faced Naked Eye Palette

I recently got this palette and am in love with it. I am definately a neutrals girl, so it's perfect for me! So I took some photos of it and did some swatches. Enjoy.
[if you want a review just let me know. I am also thinking of doing some tutorials with it]

**Easy Smokey Eye! Look of the night!**

This is one of the easiest smokey eyes out there!!
All I did was line my upper lash line (thickly) with a black pencil liner; then smudge it out; then pack on a dark matte brown shade (I used my 88 matte palette from C.S.) on the lid and blend it up. Blending it key, so invest in a good blending brush. As you can see I didn't quite get it as high as I wanted, but it works. :) Also, if you wonder how to "shape" the shadow, just follow you brow shape. A great tip I learned. Then I used a matte white hightlight shade from the same palette. I then lined my bottom lid, out to half way in and blended out with the same brown; lined my waterline and added mascara. Add falsies if you wish. ;) And that's it for the eyes!! Easy, eh??
For my face I used liquid foundation, topped it with a matte powder; added a light tough of bronzer and a tiny bit of blush.
Not wearing anything on my lips in this pic, but you can wear a nude lip color or for a more dramtic look, try a bold pink!
Hope this gives you an idea for an evening eye look.
