Hey there Beauties!
As promised, today I have another eyeshadow look using the Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Palette. Seriously, this palette is super versatile, (I think I said that already,) and I wanted to make use of the beautiful warm colors as much as the smokier colors.
This was my first time trying out a new technique, and I do think it came out pretty well. Next time I do this look, I would like to intensify it a bit. Perhaps you can do that for me and tweet me a pic? :):)
Okay, enough yabbering. If you’d like to see how I got this warm coppery blend, click below to read on. This one is short and sweet!
Set yourself up with a strong framework
Filling in my eyebrows is always my first step, so I went ahead and did that. Next, I used my NYX White Eyeshadow Base to neutralize my natural eyelid shade. Since I have lots of warm tones in my skin, I wanted to give the warm shadows the best chance of popping against my skin. I used that from the lash line, up to the brow bone.
Set your base & buff on your transition shade
I set my entire eyelid, (from lash line to brow bone,) with Charmer from the Tartelette in Bloom palette. Using a fluffy blending brush, I started blending Smarty Pants into the upper crease as a transition color.
Apply your lid color
Pick up Leader on a flat shader brush, and start packing that all over the lid, being careful to stay below the crease.
Use additional shades to help colors blend
Using a pencil brush, use Rebel to transition between Leader and Smarty Pants. You want to create a nice gradient here. I was unnecessarily conservative with my own application, and I think the look would turn out much deeper and more multi-dimentional if this gradient was more dramatic.
Layer to add dimension
Apply Firecracker all over the lid using a fluffy shader brush. You want this color to show up, but you still want the gradient underneath to be somewhat distinguishable. Blend the shimmery color as high as you are comfortable.
Line eyes to define
Apply black eyeliner to you upper lash line. I decided to go with a wing today, and I used Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper.
Don’t forget the lower lashline
For the bottom lash line, I applied a nude eyeliner in the waterline, and blended Leader 3/4 of the way across the lower lash line. I then blended the entire lower lash line with Smarty Pants.
Finish off your Tartelette look
I finished off the look by blending a bit more of Rebel into the crease area because I thought it was looking a bit pale, and topped off the eyelashes with a couple of coats of Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara. And of course, I forgot my inner corner highlight. I’ll do that next time….
That’s all for today!
