A little something about the brand:
Tarte cosmetics features an eco-friendly philosophy with green, cruelty-free cosmetics and cute looks! If you’re a makeup fanatic like myself, you’ll come to realize at some point that there are tons of makeup lines who use products that are harmful to the environment, animals, and your own skin! I’m not the best person when it comes to being eco-friendly (if I’m being honest) but their purpose and message really drew me in to trying their products!
The science of it all
Taken from their website, Tarte uses the good stuff like “superfruit and plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, essential oils and other naturally-derived ingredients” anywhere from eyeliners, to compacts, to foundation. A lot of popular makeup brands use harmful products to the skin like parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, synthetic fragrances and gluten to name a few.
So, with the help of some cool celebrity endorsements, ( I wouldn’t usually take celeb advice, but their makeup skills are GREAT! Take Lauren Conrad and Hailey Baldwin for example, who are proud wearers of Tarte.) and some endless browsing through Ulta and Sephora, I have come to find my favorite makeup line.
This baby’s got it all. It’s made with amazonian clay, so it’s not too-liquidy and has more of a thick creamy substance that blends well on the skin. It also is SPF 15 and comes in tons of shades! I use this as my main foundation. Put it over some concealer, ass a little bronzer, and you’re ready to go.
Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette
Whether it’s going to work or am afternoon out on the town, this palette has it all. It has a highlighter/bronzer combo, which I use for contouring and highlighting, it’s also got a great coral-pink blush, and of course various eyeshadows. I picked this palette over the other one because my yellow undertones fit well with these colors. If you have more of an olive skin tone, this palette is perf.
Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Longwear Liquid Eyeliner
This eyeliner has by far been the best quality eyeliner since MAC. Okay, MAC will always have a place in my heart, but Tarte’s liquid liner is awesome. No smudges, and bonus points for being waterproof. Definitely recommend this, and even their pencil liners.
