Is your eye makeup running off of your face in the heat, humidity and water sports of the summer? I don’t wear tons of eye makeup in the summer, but a little shadow, liner and mascara really makes the look. I usually swipe one neutral shadow over the lid and line my eyes with brown or plum in the daytime and black or navy at night. Finish with a nice coat of waterproof mascara and the look is perfect for the season!
The following tarte products are beautiful for the summer. Add a coat of Lights, Camera and Splashes! waterproof mascara for a swim-able eye look!
tarte emphasEYES™ Amazonian clay waterproof liner ($22.00 with brush at tartecosmetics.com). Infused with micronized clay and reinforced by a natural waterproofing agent, these plush shadow/liners are a must for creating intense and long-lasting high definition eyes. The high-performance natural™ Amazonian clay is nature’s most perfect ingredient, lending deep color pigments while nourishing skin, reducing surface oil and improving overall texture for smooth application.
The shades available are Brown, Black, Indigo, Plum, Bronze and Green. I have been enjoying the Bronze and Indigo. The Bronze I use for everyday, even to the pool. It does not budge in the water. The Indigo is my going out shade. It is so pretty paired with a soft shadow (like tarte’s Seashell Pink cream eye shadow). I have heard that it dries out quickly, but I have been using it for a few weeks and it is fine. I think the trick is to place the lid on very tightly so air does not get in. The double ended brush that is included is fantastic, too. The thinner end works will with lining the inner rims of the eyelids and the thicker end can smoke out the liner perfectly.
tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner ($18.00 for one and $28.00 for a duo of the same shade on QVC.com) — This one-of-a-kind eyeliner pencil glides on for a silky-smooth application, while Amazonian clay balances eyelids for long wear. Infused with skin-balancing Amazonian clay, this liner glides on buttery smooth to create gorgeous, defined eyes that won’t budge. The retractable component makes this liner easy to apply. Just twist up the tip of the eyeliner pencil and glide along the lash line–no sharpening required. You can make the line as thin or as thick as you desire, depending on the look you want to create.
This is available in three shades in the singles; Black, Brown and Plum and includes two more in the Duos; Navy and Turquoise. I’ve been using the Black and it is very, very black. It would be great as an inner rim liner. I use it on my top lash and the Brown or Plum on the bottom. This is a more subtle look that is fun to try. The pencil itself is very soft and breaks easily, so don’t push too hard. It did seem to last a long time, although I find the liner in the pot is longer-lasting.
tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot w/Brush ($42.00 reg. price, on sale for $22.80 on QVC.com) — A richly pigmented cream shadow that is a must for creating long-lasting, high-definition eyes. Micronized Amazonian clay intensifies color pigments while working to nourish skin, reduce surface oil, and improve overall texture for smooth application. Thanks to a botanical blend of natural plant waxes, the shadow glides on smooth and forms an impermeable layer that protects against sweat, tears, and creasing for hours of wear time. Not only is it super long-wearing, it works to infuse delicate eyelids with Amazonian clay, aloe leaf extract, beeswax, and vitamins A and E. Use the custom designed cream eye shadow brush to sweep shadow on lids and blend it into the crease for softly defined, beautiful eyes.
Currently you can purchase this in 5 shades and if you get it at QVC it comes with a very nice brush (you can always use your fingers, too). The shades are: Moss, Beach Bronze, Slate, Shimmering Plum and Seashell Pink. All of the colors are gorgeous; Slate may be a bit misleading because it is not gray at all. It is more of a taupe. I love these shadows because the shades are buildable so that you can wear them as sheer or opaque as you wish. Once you apply them, they are on for the day. I have even swam in the Seashell pink and it is still on when I am done.
I highly recommend all of these fab tarte products. If you haven’t yet, this line is one to dive into! Enjoy!
