Tarte Cosmetics New Summer 2011 Bronzing Products

Tarte Cosmetics recently unveiled their new summer 2011 bronzing products , and I thought it would be fun to use some suggestions from the new product additions as tools to re-creating Beyonce's new album "4" cover beauty look. It is part hard and strong with the eyes, yet the mouth is natural and bare, and the skin is sunkissed but not overkill with tons of shimmer.

How to recreate this look .....

For the eyes , three items from the product line can be used. Starting with the base color, Amazonian clay waterproof shadow pots in "beach bronze" , "moss" or "seashell pink" (depending on your skintone. Exclusively sold at QVC for $22.

Following the base shadow would be a hint of eyeliner Amazonian clay waterproof eyeliner duo - specifically using either "bronze" or if you want to make it your own look,"green" , also another QVC exclusive for $18.

Then the last step would be to use of the emphasEYES™ Amazonian clay waterproof eyeliner (black is shown) pots in either "bronze" or "brown" - although it is essentially an eyeliner, it smudges beautifully( I really love using this item), and given its packaging, and its texture - it is intended to be used as a multi-purpose item ( as a shadow). The eyeliner/shadow pots retail for $22 , and are available at Sephora/, Ulta/, QVC,, You would then follow with the mascara of your choice "lights camera lashes" is always a good way to go.

Cheeks and lips as you can see in the above picture, are pretty bare , so the barest blush or perhaps opting for a minimalist approach and using none at all , for the lips a matte nude / pale pink would suffice. I love the 24/7 natural lip sheer in "summer fling" or "dawn".

The "Pièce de résistance" is the finishing powder - smooth operator™ Amazonian clay finishing powder in bronze ( $28, Sephora/, Ulta/,,; retail price: $42 w/brush at QVC/ is the perfect finishing touch to this masterpiece.
