tarte Rising Star: Pink & Pewter

I’m shakin’ things up! I wore a blush as an eyeshadow today – I know, I know, I am such a rebel. I love pinks and plums on my eyes, though I know those colors don’t work for everyone. Fortunately for me, that means that every blush I own can also be used on my eyes!

I also used the tarte Rising Star palette. This is a cute little palette that’s perfect for travel. I used the Shimmering Smoke and Shimmering Cocoa colors, although the “cocoa” is way more purple and grey than it is brown.

On the eyes:

  • bareMinerals primer shadow in Brightening Sunlight
  • tarte blush in Dazzling
  • tarte Shimmering Cocoa on outer 1/3 of lid and blended into crease
  • tarte Shimmering Smoke drylined along upper and lower lashes
  • bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara

On the lips:

  • tarte LipSurgence in Obsession
  • Buxom Heather

On the face:

  • boscia bb cream
  • Mally correcting concealer duo
  • Laura Geller Balance n Brighten in Porcelain
  • tarte blush in Dazzling

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
