Tarte - tarteist™ clay paint liner

Think outside the lines and unleash your inner tarteist as you define your eyes like a pro. Inspired by the ease of an artist’s palette, this one-of-a-kind squeezable cream liner takes the intimidation out of pigmentation with a no-tug, dreamy application that’s as simple as squeeze, line and define! The unique formula features fewer waxes, cushioned pigments and a special development process unlike other traditional liners, allowing for the creamiest texture and smoothest application ever. Thanks to the revolutionary artistic tube delivery system with a tapered tip and flat blending stage, anyone can easily pick up the ideal amount of product and blend to goofproof perfection.  Featuring the same waterproof, 12-hour wear as tarte’s signature clay pot liners, this next-generation version utilizes new cushion slide technology to create your own signature tarteist stroke without ever skipping, pulling or transferring. Here are some tips.
Tip #1 : The eyeliner is bundles with the eyeliner. Apply you liner by loading up the brush and swipe across the lid.
Tip #2 : For a winged liner, you can put tape aligned with the bottom of your lashes, angled upward.


This revolutionary foundation is infused with a potent combination of Coconut Water to naturally replenish moisture levels; nature’s resilient Alpine Rose to brighten the skin’s appearance and promote elasticity and Hyaluronic Acid for a smoother, more youthful appearance. The coverage on this  foundation is medium to full coverage, however it has a semi dewy finish which looks natural. For though who are prone to acne, this foundation is oil free. Meaning that this foundation is also for skincare. I have worn this foundation for the whole day for this review. It is a beautiful foundation that color corrects. The only issue there is with the foundation is that is transfers very easily. If you touch your face then it will come off, so be careful with you face. Here are some tips.
Tip #1 : For medium coverage, apply a small amount from the center of the face outward and blend with fingertips, sponge, or brush. Build to full coverage by layering as needed.
Tip #2 : Spray a finishing spray all over the face for the makeup to be less transferable and caked up.

Full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless, 16-hour wear. Highly pigmented and perfectly balanced, this breakthrough formula builds and blends effortlessly with just one drop—the result of exclusive innovation uniquely designed to deliver long-wearing full coverage, weightlessly. Shake, pump and blend in sections for complete coverage that's completely natural looking. I have applied this foundation numerous times and I love this product. However, it doesn't have oil control. I have excessive oil in my T- Zone. When my face gets oily the product begins to separate on those areas. I suggest that you have a foundation powder with you at all times when using this foundation. Here are some tips:

Tip #1: Pump on the back of the hand so it can be warmed before applying the product.
Tip #2 : Apply with a Beauty Blender because it has the best coverage compared to a brush.
Tip #3 : Apply a powder with a fluffy brush to set the foundation.

bareMinerals - Mineral Veil®

This finishing powder is a translucent soft finish with hint of warm tint. Complete your complexion with Tinted Mineral Veil, a feather-light finish that adds just a touch of subtle color to your skin. Buff it on bare skin or over bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation, and it'll brighten your complexion, blur fine lines, and soften your features with its natural, nearly sheer shade.
I had worn this mineral finish through out the day And I believe it soaks up all the oils I would usually have to reapply powder with. I appreciate how finely milled the powder is. I find this product phenomenal for those with oily complexion. Here are some tips:
Tip #1 : Apply with a fluffy foundation brush
Tip #2 : Load the brush up with the powder and tap the excess powder off for an even application.
Tip #3 : Buff in the powder in a circular motion throughout the face.

bareMinerals -Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20

According to bareMinerals, this concealer effortlessly hides imperfections you don't want. Apply for redness and blemishes for weightless concealing that covers everything yet feels like nothing at all and protects skin with broad spectrum SPF 20. I believe that this concealer is very high coverage, however their website selections of skin tones are lighter than is demonstrated. Therefore, if you plan on purchasing a concealer from this makeup company choose a shade darker than you usually would. Another thing about this concealer that  would be f concern is that is a powder. This means that is would be best used by those with an oily complexion. Individuals with dehydrated skin would a appear very flakey and unappealing. If you still wish to use this product, I suggest you use a hydrating facial primer   or lotion. This product claims to last 8 hours through out the day, however when I wear it it doesn't not reach that length of time. I would suggest reapplying it every 2 - 3 hours. here are some tips.
Tip #1: Order a darker color if you purchase online.
Tip #2: If you have dehydrated skin, use a hydrating face primer or lotion to smooth the face.
Tip #3: touch up very 2 - 3 hours too keep the skin looking fresh.
