tarte: Lipsurgence lip tint in Fiery

Wow! I may just have a new favorite matte red lip product. This tarte Lipsurgence lip tint in the shade Fiery is a lovely red matte that almost leans slightly pink, so it’s very wearable. I tend to shy away from matte lip products because on my lips, they tend to get peely and flaky. However, Fiery lived up to its name by acting as a lip stain and keeping my lips fire engine red for about five hours. After that time, my lips were feeling dry but the color was still there, though faded, so I added a gloss for a little hydration.

I wasn’t a big fan of the eyecolors that I was wearing, so I’m glad I thought to distract the eye from the unflattering shadow shades to the delectable debut of Fiery. This one is getting an immediate promotion to a “purse lippie” which is a coveted role among my lip products!

bareMinerals: The Showstopper

Bravo and Encore are two showstopping shades in the bareMinerals Ready duo “The Showstopper.” Bravo is a pale periwinkle frosted blue, and Encore is a medium purple that seems to lean on the cooler side, but when blended out it gets a little warmer. I just loved these shades together, bringing the “WOW!” factor but still keeping it wearable with a neutral lip and cheek.

On the eyes:

  • tarte Lifted eye primer
  • bareMinerals Ready 2.0: The Showstopper – Bravo on inner 3/4 of lid from lash to crease, bringing it around inner corner. Encore on outer 1/4 of lid and blended into crease, then swept under lower lashes
  • Sephora brand black eyeliner
  • Mally volumizing mascara

On the lips:

  • tarte Lipsurgence in Glitzy

On the face:

  • Missha Cho Bo Yang bb cream in Light Beige
  • bareMinerals Warmth
  • tarte blush in Tipsy

bareMinerals: Bare Luxury #2 (The Muse)

This is my second time wearing the bareMinerals Bare Luxury: the Inspiration, and I have to say that this Ready duo with Muse and Passion are some of my favorite Ready shadows so far. You know that I just love pinks and purples on my skintone, and these two shades complement each other so well.

On the eyes:

  • tarte Lifted eye primer
  • bareMinerals Ready 2.0: The Inspiration – Muse (baby pink) all over lid from lashes to above crease, Passion (plum purple) in full crease and outer corner
  • bareMinerals Round the Clock waterproof eyeliner in 5pm along upper lashline and smudged with finger under lower lashline
  • bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara

On the lips:

  • Jordana lip liner in Baby Pink (If I were to do a re-do on this LOTD, I’d leave out the lipliner and just stick with the gloss)
  • bareMinerals Moxie lipgloss in Live Wire

On the face:

  • tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour foundation in Ivory
  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream #9

Sleek MakeUp: Lime Green & Plum

I may have a tough time wearing olive greens, but I sure love to rock a bright lime green! This was actually the look I wore this year on St. Patrick’s Day – I know, I know, I’m a month late and a dollar short, but I found this blog post hiding away and thought it was about time I showed my Irish pride!

I used the Sleek MakeUp Monaco i-Divine palette for this look, incorporating Kiwi Zest, Moors Treasure, and Midnight Garden. I also used the shade Bamboo on my inner eye area and under my brow. I think that the warm plummy brown shade of Moors Treasure tones down the bright, fun Kiwi Zest to make it a bit more wearable. I added in the Midnight Garden, a really rich indigo, as a liner, just to add a bit more zing.

On the eyes:

  • bareMinerals original eye primer
  • Sleek MakeUp i-Divine Monaco palette: Kiwi Zest on lid, Moors Treasure in outer corner, Midnight Garden lining outer half of upper and lower lashlines, Bamboo on inner eye and under brow
  • bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara

On the lips:

  • tarte Lipsurgence in Enchanted

On the face:

  • Missha Cho Bo Yang bb cream in Light Beige
  • Laura Geller Balance n Brighten in Porcelain
  • tarte concealer in Fair
  • Ulta blush in Flush

bareMinerals: Soul Sister & Satin Ruffles

These pictures are actually from a week or two ago, but I liked the eye combo so much that I wore it again yesterday for a job interview, substituting in bareMinerals Pretty Amazing Fearless for the lip.

On the eyes:

  • bareMinerals Brightening Pearl eye primer (concentrating a little more under brow and on inner eyelid)
  • Satin Ruffles from lash to crease
  • Soul Sister blended in outer V and into crease
  • tarte Blackened Plum Amazonian Clay eyeliner
