This is the everyday makeup look that I’ve been gravitating to, now that I’m wearing deeper & warmer colors for fall. I have been using the Tartelette in Bloom palette a lot lately. I am huge fan of Tarte’s makeup & this palette is just so pretty! It’s the right combination of warm & cool neutrals, plus matte & shimmer, for everyday looks. The shades are richly pigmented, plus have staying power because they’re made with Amazonian clay. Because all of the shades coordinate so well, it’s easy to transition from a day to night look without having to completely re-do your makeup. Read on to see how I use the Tartelette in Bloom palette for an easy, everyday daytime look that’s perfect for fall!
I start with my longwear foundation routine – IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better Primer, Tarte Face Tape Foundation & Shape Tape Concealer, (**pro tip: use MAC Fix+ on a beauty sponge instead of water for staying power**), then Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder. After filling in my brows with L’Oreal’s Brow Stylist, doing a little contouring with KVD’s Shade + Light Palette, & adding some Physician’s Formula Butter Blush on my cheeks, I’m ready to start my eyes! I always apply some extra translucent powder under my eyes to catch any fall-out & to brighten the area more. Note: when I’m apply foundation, I dab a little of what’s on the beauty sponge onto my eyelids & brush with setting powder to help keep my eye-shadow in place.
- I begin by applying “Smarty Pants” over my eyelid & crease with a big, fluffy brush (like the Morphe M441). This gives a good, neutral background to blend stronger shades into & provides some depth. You want to blend well so that there aren’t any harsh lines.
- Then I apply “Rebel” onto the outside half of my eyelid using the same brush. I use what remains on the brush to blend “Rebel” into the crease, focusing on the outer half of my eyes.
- Next, I pat “Leader” onto the outer corners of my eyelids & into the crease using a small, pointed brush (like the Morphe M506). You want this shade to overlap, but not completely cover, “Rebel” & don’t want to blend much into the crease. It should be a thin line right on the crease.
- Then I pat “Funny Girl” on the inner half of my eyelids, without blending onto the crease at all, using a small brush (like the Morphe JH41). It’s such a pretty, golden shade!
- Finally, I use the small, pointed brush to dab “Activist” onto the very outer corner of my eyelids.
I use Stila’s Stay All Day Liner in “Intense Black” on my upper lids & MAC’s TechnaKohl Liner in Graphblack on my lower lash-line. I always curl & prime my lashes with L’Oreal’s Voluminous Lash Primer before mascara to give extra volume. I have been a long-time user of L’Oreal’s Voluminous Mascara, but recently tried Tarte’s Big Ego & absolutely love it! It gives so much length & volume, without clumping up.
