Tarte’s new tarteist metallic eyeshadows are bomb. They are shimmery, have the most velvet texture, and blend and buff like a makeup dream. Oh, and the color payoff? It’s insane.
The bronzy gold Shake Down and the plummy Scarlet look good together, alone, or paired with a matte black, smudged liner. Try it!
Best Lazy Girl Hack
OMG! Butter London’s ShadowClutch Wardrobe Duos are perfect pairs. They eliminate any guesswork when it comes to mixing and matching hues. You can layer and build based on the depth and intensity you desire and without having to put too much thought into it. Palm Paradise mashes up a matte sage and a shimmery gold. It’s my favorite of these pairs, which are packaged like little drawers you pull out.
Best Contouring Concealer
Tarte’s Shape Tape isn’t tape at all… although I am sure you never thought it was. It’s a creamy concealer that offers radiant coverage as well as the ability to contour. Who cares if Kim Kardashian is all about the nontouring trend? This baby, with its supersized doe-foot wand, slays. I even used it to cover up a small tattoo for a day.
Best Contouring Kit
Trestique Trebebe Contour Kit is a three-piece, totable kit that lets you get that defined, contoured look on-the-go, thanks to the three sticks contained within.
Best Way To Have A Little Lip Fun
Rock the Real Rebel lipstick, which is green in the tube but then works with your body chemistry to tint your lips a red shade. It’s a custom color and tingles a little when applied. The brand promises the perfect red lip or you get a refund.
It certainly enhances your natural lip hue. My lips are super pink and when I used this baby, my pucker looked plump healthy, and brighter. It works!
