Justine's Favorites Tarte 'Rainforest After Dark' Colored Clay Eye and Cheek Palette
My first favorite for this time of the year is this palette by Tarte.
This is a beautiful palette perfect for beginners and to take on trips because you have everything you need to achieve a perfect every day look in it. Tarte offers us one highlight, one blush, one bronzer and six eyeshadows (three mattes and three shimmery). It is perfect for both an every day or a ‘going out at night’ look. The shadows are creamy and they blend beautifully on the lid. The blush, highlight and bronzer are perfect to create dimension and bring light on my fair skin tone. This blush is now my go-to blush for the summer or for a ‘no-makeup’ makeup kind of day. I think that you get a good amount of quality products for your money (46$).
I strongly recommend this palette and, if you enjoy it, they have an other similar one named the ‘Showstopper’ Clay Palette that you might want to check out.
Maybelline's 'Fit Me' Powder
I have also been loving the ‘Fit Me’ Powder. It is a great powder to set your fondation and your concealer with. On the skin it gives you a natural and glowy look but keeps your makeup in place for the day. I think it is a great powder especially for people with dryier skin because of the glow the powder gives. I altought think that the new ‘Fit Me’ Powder ‘Matte+ Poreless’ will suit people with a more oily skin better. They also have a great colour selection that will match every skin tone.
Kathrina's Favorite Smashbox 'Shape Matters' Palette
I have been obsessed with this palette ever since I bought it a couple of weeks ago. It has basically everything you need to get ready in the morning. For an everyday make-up look I always start by using the brow powders. Mixing the two shades together gives me an awesome color for blondes to create perfect brows. I then go ahead and set them with the gel, using the brush that came with the kit. I can without a doubt say that they stay in place all day! I also like to use the ‘Bronze’ shade and the highliter to make my face look more alive in the early morning, which I absolutely love. On a more formal occasion like a diner, I like to add ‘Stripped’ all over my eyelid with a touch of ‘Sumatra’ and ‘Contour’ in the crease to darken the look. I finally like to apply ‘Vanilla’ in my iner-corner and on my brow bone. This highlight color is very pretty and I feel like it makes such a difference in lifting and making my eyes look bigger. I love this palette because all of the colors are so pigmented and stay on for quite a great amount of time. They are very easy to blend and the variety of shades makes it really versatile and fun. I think it was a really great purchase because you get a lot of products, which is so practical!
