Top tips: tarte Miracles of the Amazon Collection


It’s great to have this limited edition ‘Miracles of the Amazon’ makeup collection from tarte, especially as it is such a hot brand and we are the only official retailers.

This range constantly amazes me because of the incredible fashion performance which would be the envy of many couture makeup ranges, yet it is designed as a ‘free-from’ makeup range yet still delivers luxurious textures, outstanding performance and fantastic results.

For me, there are three different types of customers that are drawn to this range:

1. High fashion, high glamour customers looking for up-to-date looks with great performance

2. Ingredient-savvy consumers that search out brands such as tarte because of their natural preservative systems etc.

3. Sensitive skin customers that often can’t enjoy fashion makeup because of too many artificial colours, fragrances and perfumes and have discovered they can enjoy the tarte range

This kit is fantastic value as the pallet alone would normally retail at £29.00 on our website and the mascara at £19.44. Add to that you get a full size lip gloss, a makeup bag and a double ended brush. It really is a great buy.

My favourite piece in the collection is the liquid lip shine in Exquisite, which I am definitely requesting as a duo. The formula gives a hint of colour which makes your lips look younger and fuller with a lovely supple texture.

The mascara speaks for itself, with the amazing, thickening and plumping effect of the clay-infused formula giving immediate impact to all lashes and has the added bonus of continual conditioners.

The shadow and colour pallet gives so many different options for a myriad of looks on top of your normal base, whether that be a foundation with BB cream or mineral makeup – whatever you normally use is fine.208897.v.0012

For a….

Quick Fresh Look
Use the Talented blush which is a brightening coral pink on apples of the cheeks, and sockets of eyes, combined with the Exquisite gloss and if you need to add more colour, apply the blush with fingers onto the lips and apply gloss on top. Finish with the Gifted mascara for a fresh, healthy face.

Office/Day Look
Apply the Talented blush on the apples but sweep back to the ears for more shape. For paler skin, use Pink Beyond eyeshadow on the lids and add Dreams Plum True behind lashes as liner. Olive or darker skin, use Out of this Pearl on the lids and Paint the Brown as liner. Finish with Exquisite gloss on the lips.

Sultry Fashion Look
Go gentle on the cheek and lip and blur the eyes for a technique where the shadows are so finely milled they look like an airbrush – especially with the easy brush application. Use the Pink Beyond as a complete eye base, the Out of this Pearl as a brow and inner eye highlighter, and also use your finger to apply this creamy pearl as a highlighter to the top of your cheeks, Then for paler skin blur the Thistle of the Day all over the mobile lid and use the Paint the Brown for darker definition nearer the lashes. For those more adventurous or who have a great eye shape – blend wider than the eye but always with an upwards and outwards motion. For olive/darker skin use this same technique but use the Taupe on the lid and Dreams Plum True closer to the lash.

For the blurring technique, the brush is fantastic. Use the flat-shaped brush to pat or place the shadow in position but use the longer, rounded brush to blend and blur. If you have a best friend or another girl in the family, you may need to do yourself a favour and get a second kit as a gift or to put away for Christmas as the word ‘Envy’ will spring to mind if they see yours.

    This is a very nice set but I cannot for the life of me see how much it is going to cost!

    At the age of 56 I,ve finally found a cleanser that I love. Josie maran cleansing oil deals with my difficult skin. I have oily,sensitive,rosacea prone, spot prone skin. DONT STOP producing it.

    this is a very nice packaged product but it would have been good to have a brusher brush included …dissapointed with the lip gloss so far the colour l thought would be more of a paler pink creamy colour..
