Holiday Glam feat. the Tarte Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette

I feel like almost everybody has been raving about the latest product launches from Tarte cosmetics, especially the Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette. This palette consists of 16 creamy, pigmented matte shades (square pans) and 4 duo-chrome/ metallic shades (circular pans).

I am so in love with this palette and really enjoy the colors and formula of the matte and shimmer shades. I have never tried out any eyeshadow palettes from Tarte before, but after trying this palette I am a big fan!

The Holiday Glam look that I created today is meant to be very simple and not too over the top. I used the shades “Innocent” and “Bold” as my transition shades and then deepened up the crease using the shades “Smoked”, “Mod”, and “Drama”. Then, for the star of this look, I applied the shade “Trendy” all over the lid using my finger. This shade is that famous Mac Blue Brown pigment kind of shade and it looks absolutely gorgeous. I used a little bit of the black shade “Punk” on the outter corner. For the bottom lashline, I smoked it out using the shades “Mod” and “Drama”.

Cobalt Blue Winged Liner: Makeup Look

I’m baaaack! It has been quite a while since my last post because I have been so busy with school just starting, but I really missed creating makeup looks! So, I decided to come back with something bold and colorful (I even applied false lashes, which is something I really never do with my typical makeup looks). Even though summer is coming to an end, I really wanted to do something vibrant AND, I am trying out a new foundation.

Products Used:

Eyes

  • I primed my lids with the same concealer I used for under my eyes and set it with a translucent powder.
  • I used the light and deeper pink shades from my Wet N Wild “Poster Child” eyeshadow palette in the crease. I used the lighter pink shade as my transition shade and then deepened it up with the deeper pink shade. I applied the same deeper pink shade to my bottom lashline as well. Side note: the Wet N Wild crease brush has been my go-to crease brush recently. It is extremely soft and blends shadows like a dream. Also, it is only $1!
  • I applied the L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in the shade Amber Rush all over my lid.
  • For the star of the show- the cobalt blue liner- I used the Wet N Wild liquid liner in the color Voltage Blue. This eyeliner is so pretty and dries down completely matte. It is also very easy to apply and not streaky at all.
  • I applied one coat of my Jordana Best Lash mascara to my top and bottom lashes and then applied a pair of falsies to my top lashes. The ones that I used are from Ardell (I think, they are from the drugstore) in the Andrea style. I typically do not wear false lashes because personally I think they are too dramatic for everyday, but these look so natural and I have been wearing them a lot!

Face

  • I primed my face using the Murad Oil Control Mattifier.
  • The foundation I used is a new one I am trying out- the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer in the shade Cream Whip (I will post a full first impressions/ review of this foundation tomorrow!). I applied it using a Real Techniques sponge.
  • For concealer, I used the Wet N Wild Come Correct celebrity concealer in the shade medium. I applied this under my eyes and on other high points of my face.
  • I set my concealer with the RCMA no color powder and the rest of my face with the Maybelline Better Skin pressed powder.
  • I contoured using the Wet N Wild contour palette in shade Dulce De Leche and bronzed using the Milani Baked Bronzer in shade Soleil.
  • For blush I used the Milani Rose Blush in shade Tea Rose.
  • My highlight is Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop. This highlight goes with L’Oreal Amber Rush beautifully!
  • I set my makeup with the Mario Badescu Rosewater facial spray.

Brows & Lips

  • For brows I used my L’Oreal Brow Stylist Definer is shade Dark Brunette and set them with a clear brow gel from Wet N Wild.
  • For lips, I just applied the NYX Mega Shine lipgloss in Frosted Beige for a metallic glossy look.
