Tarte ‘Tartelette’ palette.

This is a palette I have admired for a long time and I finally ordered it recently from Sephora.  The packaging of this is stunning with a gold case and ombre purple across the front. The palette is lightweight so easy for travelling and closes securely.

The palette is set out in the rows each containing four matte shadows. Each row is a different look that could be toned down for day time or vamped up for night time and you could mix and match the rows for your own unique look.

Each row goes from light to dark and there is a variety of warm browns, purples and cool browns in this palette so there is something for everyone.

Free Spirit is a very natural shade and is very similar to my skin tone which makes it brilliant to use as a base shadow all over the lid.

Force of nature is a light warm brown shade that is perfect as a transition shade for the crease as it is so easy to blend.

Dreamer is a dark warm brown shade that I like to use to darken up the crease for a more smokey and dramatic look.

Multi-tasker is an almost black brown shade that I would use as a light liner and push into the lash line to make my lashes look thicker. This could also be used in the outer corner of the eye for a more dramatic look.

Caregiver is a light pink purple shade that I would use all over the lid, the shade is subtle on the lid so there’s no risk of it looking like you have a nasty eye infection which is never a good look!

Natural beauty is a subtle mauve shade that makes a brilliant transition shade for this look.

Best friend is darker cool toned purple shade that is brilliant for darkening the crease and outer corner.

Bombshell is an almost black shade with some purple, this is brilliant to use as a liner with an angled shadow brush as it is not as harsh as a liquid liner. This could also be used for a really smokey eye and used in the outer corner of the eye.

Super mom is a matte ivory shade perfect for brightening the inner corner of the eye or highlighting the brow bone. It is also gorgeous all over the lid as a base shadow.

Wanderer is a caramel shade which I love to use as a transition colour to add some definition to the eye.

Power player is a very unusual shade it’s a cool toned grey brown shade that is really hard to describe! But it is perfect for a classic smokey eye for a dramatic look.

Fashionista is a classic matte black which is perfect for a liner as it is not as harsh as a liquid liner but still adds more definition to the lashline and is easy to smoke out.
