Monday Makeup Mirror: How to Use the tarte The Miracle of Maracuja 8-Piece Skin Smart Collection

Me in the tarte cosmetics The Miracle of the Maracuja Skin-Smart Collection, available on QVC

One of the best things about what I do is that I get to play with makeup and skincare all day long. This is awesome, but it also means that I am SUPER PICKY. Meaning that I won’t just write about any old makeup. For me to actually PUT IT ON MY FACE, take a photo and talk about it means a lot. It’s one of the reasons I love tarte so much. Great makeup formulas that seek to do no harm, it’s makeup I’m very comfortable wearing regularly. As a matter of fact, I wear it A LOT.

When I got my hands on this amazing The Miracle of Maracuja 8-Piece Skin Smart Collection exclusive available NOW on QVC, I put the products on immediately and they delivered like Domino’s. Here’s what’s on my face and how to use it:

tarte Pure Maracuja Oil – This amazing oil has so many uses it boggles the mind. In this photo, I actually applied a thin layer on wet skin after washing my face to lock in hydration underneath my foundation. I will include a post on this product alone later because there are so many uses for this product, it might astound you.

tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer – Containing the same miracle Maracuja oil, this good-for-skin concealer goes on easily and literally disappears into skin within seconds. It’s used here to cover slight imperfections and – in all honesty – some serious undereye baggage.

tarte Beauty & The Box in Evoke the Smoke – A great shadow quad that includes Amazonian clay (amazing for purifying the skin and with great staying power.) All four colors are used here: the light pink as a highlighter under the brow, the pewter grey as the base lid shade, the vibrant plum as a V-shape along the outer corner of the eye and the sooty black as a liner to enhance the lash line.

tarte Cashmere Waterproof Gliding Liner in Black Magic – Ladies that wear contact lenses, let me be the first to extol the virtues of this waterproof liner. Non-irritating, it won’t bleed into your eyes and it won’t mess up your lenses. Perfect for light daily definition (seen here) or for a full-on rocker chick effect at night.

tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara – Amazing mascara that contains Amazonian clay, so it builds without clumping, gives great definition and doesn’t dry and fall into my eyes within hours. It can stay put through a whole long day into an evening workout without melting, which is why I love it.

tarte Airblush Maracuja Bouncy Blush in Shimmering Poppy – A perfect color on almost every woman, this peachy-pink gives a great natural (think just finished a workout) glow. It’s soft and creamy, so I applied it to the apples of my cheeks with my fingers, then blended it with a good blush brush, like the tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush.

tarte Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Gloss in Peaceful– I LOVE this gloss, particularly in this color. The formula is smooth and very hydrating without being sticky (a huge failure in my book.) Peaceful is a great nude with a touch of shine. It’s perfect for all skin tones because it just enhances your own natural lip shade.

Like the look? Head to QVC for this skin-friendly makeup and skincare look, which is currently showing a price of $65.94, a HUGE steal over buying all of these items at retail. Spring is springing, give yourself the gift of a new makeup look!
