If you follow me on instagram or twitter you’ll know my love for the brand Tarte and their new Rainforest After Dark palette. I featured this new treat of mine on my last beauty post and have been loving on it since. Not only does it include six delightful eyeshadows, but it also sports a blush, highlighter and bronzer. It’s basically an all-in-one travel delight. Are you sold yet?
Naturally, I wanted to play with my new toy so I corralled my sister into being my makeup tester and she begrudgingly obliged. This is what occurred next;
To start the look off I used the Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeshadow crayons in number 002 Bulletproof Beige and 003 in Bad Girl Bronze to create a blended bronzed look to the eyelid. Next, I used the Tarte Rainforest After Dark Palette eyeshadows in color tan-gled up in you and make a mauve to layer over and give the eyelid a light purple tint. With a blending brush, I used plum-away with me in the crease and smudged it outwards to make the eye a bit messier.
Using the Benefit They’re Real! gel eyeliner to create a dramatic cateye. With two layers of Maybelline’s the Falsies mascara, the eyes were complete!
For her face, I used it Cosmetics Illumination Foundation in Light to give light coverage. For blush, I used the Tarte palette again and the blush shade unleashed. I then highlighted her cheekbone with the shade champagne, and used the park avenue princess bronzer to contour and shade the edges of her face.
And that’s the finished look! I’m really happy with how it turned out and the versatility of this palette. I think this is a good dramatic day look and can definitely be spiced up for night or toned down for a more everyday look!
