Ostara. Glowing Spring Makeup Tutorial Feat. Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight & Contour Palette.

Add heading (7)
Good Morning Beauties! I wanted to kick off the week with a super springy glowy and wearable look. I wanted to have this look up Friday but time got away from me and I didn’t have a whole lot to include in my Weekly Edit so today is a makeup tutorial instead.

This look centers around the Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight and Contour Palette and the Tarte Tarteist PRO Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette.  It’s all about the glowy skin and a soft and warm halo eye perfect for spring. I included two lip options because I couldn’t decide which I liked better.

The Eyes

As per usual, I’m starting with the eyes, more out of habit than anything now. On the eyes, I’m using the Tarte Tarteist PRO Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette (what a mouthful) because it’s a beautiful palette with the perfect shades for what I wanted to do. Review is coming this Wednesday and a more Avant-Garde tutorial (hopefully) Friday.

In today’s looks I am using the warm neutrals on the top row of the palette and the metallic champagne for a pop of shine.  photo 20170310_000658_zpsvfz4rdrp.jpg photo 20170328_162515_zpsj0vkbdit.jpg

First things first, brows done, eyes primed and laid down Classic (cream) as a base from lid to brow bone.

I finished off the eyes by adding a flesh colored liner to the inner water line, curled my lashes and applied a few coats of the Tarte Tartiest Lash Paint.

The Face

Now for my new favorite contouring product, the Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight and Contour Palette.  photo 20170328_162946_zpsrmlrq1wd.jpg

As Coffee Break with Dani says, “Welcome to mah face”  I’m starting the skin by priming with an illuminating primer. I used Laura Mercier Illuminating Primer all over the face.  photo face 2_zpseyjqyii9.jpg

Next up, Before foundation, I am going in with my cream contour.  photo 20170328_163009_zpsqj3rsy8o.jpgFirst, I want to show you what brushes I use with the cream contour.

For the hollows of the cheeks, jawline and temples I use an angled contour brush. I tap it lightly into the contour and take some of the product off on my wrist before going in on the face.

For the smaller areas, like my nose, and under my lip I use this little blender brush from e.l.f. because it has a flat edge and again, I removed the extra product.  photo 20170401_005513_zps4gylzmmw.jpg

The cream contour in this palette is very easy to over do which I kind of did but that’s okay because it will all blend and be fine once I do foundation.

I put the cream contour into all the areas I want to create definition and structure I accidently brought the contour cream down a little farther in the hollow of the cheek than I liked but it gets fixed.  Once I got the product on, I kind of half blended it to soften the edges, but when I do the foundation everything gets blended and it gives a more natural looking shadow to the face that doesn’t cream contour. Looks crazy now, I know. I went kinda HAM.

Next up I did my favorite foundation cocktail, 1 part L’Oreal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation in Classic Ivory and 1 part Nyx Pro Foundation Mixer In White.  Then my concealer/highlighting with 1 part Kat Von D Lock-Concealer in L3 Warm and  2 parts White Out.

I applied the foundation all over my face with a damp beauty sponge. I used the one from Eco Tools in a dabbing motion. This blends out the cream contour and it merges with the foundation so they look like one with no harsh lines. Be sure to dab and not swipe because then the contour will blend everywhere, or away completely.  photo face 6_zpss9rpvtsr.jpg

I blended it even more than this when all is said and done, because I didn’t how far down the contour came. Once, I was happy with the blending I set everything with e.l.f. HD Powder.

Once, everything was set with powder I used the Sculpt shade from the Tarteist Palette to add more definition to everywhere I applied the cream contour.

To apply the powder contour I used the angled contour brush from Wet n Wild. It’s one of my favorites for contour because it blends everything so softly and doesn’t pick up too much product.  photo 20170401_014711_zpsbovlkp4c.jpg

I always make sure to apply my contour in an upward motion, so it lifts the face as well. I try to dab in an upward motion when I do the cream contour as well.

Next, I applied my blush just above the contour and onto the apples of the cheek and added a little bronzer to bring some warmth to my face. For blush, I used the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Paaarty. I love this blush so much. It also makes me think of Adora Delano.   photo 20170309_231316_zpspsxwaoo0.jpg Then, I used Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal on a big powder brush all over the face as my finishing powder. I applied it in a buffing motion to makes sure everything was blended together and flowed.  photo face 3_zpsqr5yerhn.jpg

And now for the highlighting. Time to go HAM again, cause I want all the glow today!  I used a combination of Fire, Lit, and Strobe.  I used Fire as more of blush topper rather than highlight.

Then Lit and Strobe as my full on highlight.
 photo 20170328_162951_zps7omkqpuo.jpg photo 20170328_163003_zpsqlyqn4zl.jpgI mean… Could I have piled on more? I hit all the high points of my face, tops of the cheeks bones, brow bone, about the arch of my brow, down the nose, and cupids bow.

The Lips

For the first lip option, I wanted to try a more nude shade so I went for Tarte Tarteist Matte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit. (can you tell I really love Tarte and no, not sponsored. LOL. I wish!)  photo 20170309_231205_zpsp0frmtnu.jpg

I topped the Tartiest Lip Paint with one of the new metallic glosses from Lancome in Nude on the center of the lips.

The Finished Look with Lip 1 photo HTTH_zpsvaqbmdl2.jpg photo BFBFB_zpsc6d9fikx.jpg

For lip option number 2 I wanted something a little more bold and chocolatey. So I opted for Maybelline Loaded Bolds in Coffee Addiction which is a rich reddish brown.

Finished Look with Lip #2

I really liked both lips with this look, depends on mood I guess but I REALLY like the deeper lip cause that’s usually what I go for is a more vampy lip which is suiting, because I live like a vampire most days. Sun? what’s that?  photo giphy 4_zpsupv5nnvf.gifMaybe if I saw the sun more I wouldn’t have to mix straight white into my foundation and concealer. LOL! photo FjOrXV_zpsejhnerqm.gif
Anyway, which lip do you prefer? Let me know below! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start and I’ll see you Wednesday, hopefully. My week is off to busy start.
