Today I wanted to talk about Tarte. Tarte is brand that I recently started using and I'm loving so much of their line that I thought I'd share. They are a cruelty-free cosemtics line and their products are all formulated without parabens, mineral oil, synthetic fragrances or gluten. With Tarte, you get all the good stuff in your products and none of the icky stuff! ;) I always start by prepping my skin with an SPF. I super enjoy the Tarteguard 30. It isn't sticky and is super lightweight. Some sunscreens I've tried on my face feel super oily and thick and I just feel like I'm going to break out right away after using so I really enjoy how lightweight the formula is on the Tarte sunscreen lotion. Tarteguard is mainly made up of Zinc and has an SPF 30. Just what I want to help protect my skin from getting more dark spots and fine lines.
Next up- I color correct any dark spots and red spots I already have been blessed with....ha! This Rainforest of the Sea Wipeout Color-Correcting Palette really helps to correct my skin tone. I use the orange color under my eyes to correct the dark spots and the green color on any redness I want to tone down. These formulas are also lightweight so it doesn't feel like you are clogging any pores when you apply it to your skin. I use a concealer brush and just spot correct. I also sometimes will use the bronze shade to cream bronze my cheeks. It blends in super easy because it is so creamy. I also love the packaging on this product. The mirror you get is so nice and big plus the compact feels super sturdy.
Now onto foundation and concealer. The Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF is a really nice foundation. I don't love the packaging - you use the dropper to apply the foundation onto your beauty sponge or brush or even directly on your face. I much prefer a pump foundation. I found the application goes better by dropping the foundation onto my beauty sponge. I've been using the Morphe sponge lately which is more dense than the Beauty Blender. You're able to choose the amount of coverage you get by the amount of drops you use. I typically using 3-4 drops for a medium to full coverage. It has a very satin finish to it and does blend well into your skin. I also enjoy how this foundation has an SPF 15 as well. I have the shade Fair Neutral. The concealer- I'M OBSESSED with. I use the light shade because I like to highlight under my eyes as well as conceal. It is called the Rainforest of the Sea Aquacealer Concealer (clever names if you haven't noticed). It has this large doe-foot applicator wand that is just perfection. I usually dot under my eyes with the wand first then draw out from under my eyes in a triangle. It blends in like a dream and delivers medium coverage and does not crease throughout the day when set with a light powder.
Close up of skin and lashes.....eeeee
This lash curler is literally the BEST one on the market I swear. It makes my lashes so curled and it has lasted me forever. I highly recommend you purchasing to have in your makeup collection for everyday use. Do yourself a favor and be a Curl Boss. The mascara is so so - but you can get a travel size and the lash curler for $20! So I say- go for it ;)
The Rainforest of the Sea Lipsaver Treatment Primer is super duper interesting. It is a white cream balm that completely smooths out your lips and your fine lines seem to disappear. It "primes and preps" your lips for lipstick. It is said to protect your lips and also promote firmness and elasticity. In the photo above I also used the Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue in Nude (going with the theme ;) Ughhhh I'm completely in love with these lip balms. They feel SO SO nouriching on your lips. It is a minty peppermint scent and is so cooling and refreshing when you apply onto your lips. The lip rescue feels like butter and looks really glossy with a hint of color. I want all 4 of them!! I could wear the balm all day everyday- seriously.
Thanks for stopping by!
I'm happy I was able to make some time to shoot another post out- I know it's been awhile.
