CCS - WARM SMOKY EYE

Cocoa Color Stories are back with a bit more focus this year! We are going to create individual stories for eyes, face, and lip looks! Lets dive in, shall we?

I used to be SO afraid of the all-mighty smoky eye. We've all been there. A little too much black shadow or a lack of blending can have you looking all types of wrong, super fast! But never fear my fellow beauty lovers - the key to the perfect smoky is ...wait for it...practice! 🤣😩

Cocoa Color Story : Fall Inspired

I decided to hop on the Morphe train and picked up my first palette: the 35O2. Love is an understatement. This is the PERFECT palette for anyone who loves warm toned palettes and definitely gives off fall vibes. (Check out the Cocoa Swatches App for swatches of this palette) This week's Cocoa Color Story is inspired by this palette.

Cocoa Color Story : Fenty Beauty

When I first saw the Fenty Beauty video campaign appear on Instagram, I couldn't help but scream YAS! at my phone. An inclusive campaign with a minimal aesthetic shot at the golden hour - SIGN. ME. UP. That whole vibe is right up my alley. Once I was able to get my hands on some of the Fenty Beauty products, the Cocoa Color Story was the first thing I shot.

Introducing: Cocoa Color Stories

I've always been a visual learner. Whenever I see a makeup look show up on my Instagram feed or an outfit walk down the runway, I envision what products I could use to achieve the look or what color accessories pair well an aesthetic. That's why I've decided to introduce Cocoa Color Stories to SKINDEEP.
