Tarteist Pro Palette: Review, Swatches, and Tutorial

Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette tutorial NEW

It’s a holiday season and I’ve been treating myself with so many makeup gifts that it’s not even funny. I scored a lot of deals during Black Friday and Cyber Monday and this gorgeous Tarteist Pro eyeshadow palette by Tarte is one of my most favorite purchases. It’s still in stock at both websites and if you are still looking for a perfect holiday gift, look no more: this palette is as good as it could possibly go!

I’ll start with my tutorial, and if you are interested in checking out my review on each of the shades from the palettes, as well as see some swatches, check out the end of this post.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation review

Step #1. I started with applying my favorite foundation at the moment, Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. I’ve heard so many great things about it on YouTube and I was curious to try it out. It did not disappointed as it covers all of my skin imperfections and stays on my skin for 10+ hours. I applied it using Ulta Beauty Sponge which is my favorite dupe of a beautyblender.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel review

Step #2: I filled it using Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Gel, followed by Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel. I own both full and a miniature size of these products and these are perfect if you don’t like brows that are too “done.” I always love applying brow makeup before starting with my eyes so I can see the final look right away instead of guessing how it will look like with brow makeup on.

Step #3: It’s time for the eye makeup! Using angled brush W20 by SlMissGlamBeauty, I picked up the shade Classic from my Tarteist Pro Eyeshadow Palette and applied it all over my lids.

Then, I applied the shade Innocent on the crease and thoroughly blended these two shades together. After that, I continued adding up color by blending in the shade Whimsy (it’s very pigmented so make sure to apply a tiny amount). I used the shade drama to emphasize the outer corners of my eyes.

Finally, I used a blending brush from my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette to properly blend all four shades together.

Eyeko London Skinny Liquid Eyeliner review

Step #4: For my eyeliner, I used Eyeko London Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Black which is a super pigmented and long-lasting product I’m currently in love with. This one came in my Birchbox and I already plan on repurchasing it!

Ulta Beauty Sponge review

Step #5: To make an eyeliner line sharper, I applied Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer onto under the eye area and blended it with the same damped sponge. I used a flat concealer brush from my BH Cosmetics brush set to blend the product immediately close to my eyeliner.

Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara review

Step #6: For mascara, I used Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara which is my absolute new favorite product that even bit the Tarte Lights. Camera. Lashes Mascara that I’ve been wearing for years!

Pixi by Petra Palette Rosette review

Step #7: To make my complexion a bit more radiant and healthy-looking, I applied the blush and highlighter from the Pixi by Petra Palette Rosette (I reviewed this palette here and I’ve been using it daily ever since).

Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Driver’s Seat review

Step #8: For this look, I decided to go for a liquid lipstick so I picked Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Driver’s Seat.

Step #9: Finish the look with your favorite setting spray. My current favorite product under this category is Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette: Review & Swatches

Tarteist Pro Makeup Palette Makeup Tutorial

Tarte Tarteist Pro Eyeshadow Palette features 16 matte and 4 metallic shadows, each of the eyeshadow containers are 0.035 oz. The matte shades are very creamy and buildable, with a close to nothing fallout (especially the metallic ones). The metallic shades are out of this world pigmented and have some fallout so perhaps apply them before your foundation.

The range of colors in the palette is so versatile that you would be able to create various looks using just this palette. You have neutrals, oranges, browns, pinks, burgundies, and even a dark gray shade. The metallics feature a subtle golden undertone and are super easy to work with.

I love the fact that the palette features a big mirror which makes it super convenient to use and to travel with. Overall, it’s one of the best makeup investments I’ve done this year and I continue enjoying this palette as I use the shadows from it on a daily basis.

  • This is such a brilliant post, Katya! I wanted to purchase this palette but I noticed that the first two rows from the left is pretty similar and those shades have the tendency to appear way too similar on my skin tone.

    • I totally understand your point, Shireen! Most of these shades are available in other Tarte palettes, but it’s my first palette by the brand, so I didn’t have any dupes in my collection before I purchased it. Also, I’ve heard so many great things about Tarte matte eye shadows so I was super excited to give this palette a try!

      Yes, some of the shades are really neutral and they look like my skin tone too, but I actually love it! Usually, I apply an eyeshadow which is similar to my skin tone all over my lid and under the brow and then start building up other shades on top of it. I believe that such technique allows to apply eye shadows more evenly!

  • That eye makeup look is so pretty and those palette shades are stunning 🙂
