Purple Glam for Prom with Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette

I recently watched NikkiTutorial's "Colored Glamour" look and was inspired to create a similar look with the newest palette in my collection, Too Faced's Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Collection Palette The palette is $49 and comes 16 eyeshadows in a mix of matte and shimmer shades. I scored mine on HSN for a STEAL: $29 got me the palette, a full-sized Too Faced Shadow Insurance eye primer, and free shipping! Unfortunately that deal is now over.

Take a peek at the first look I created using this palette.
