Tarteist Pro Palette: Review, Swatches, and Tutorial

Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette tutorial NEW

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. 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: Matte Foundation I Swear By

I started with applying my favorite foundation for combo skin 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 disappoint as it covers all of my skin imperfections and stays on my skin for 8+ hours. I applied it using the original beauty blender.

Step 2: Two-Step Brow Makeup

I filled it using Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Gel, followed by Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel. I own both full and miniature sizes 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: Tarteist Pro Eyeshadow Palette

It’s time for the eye makeup! I broke down the entire process into a few steps so it’s easier to follow.

1. Using an angled brush, I picked up the shade Classic from my Tarteist Pro Eyeshadow Palette and applied it all over my lids.

2. Then, I applied the shade Innocent on the crease and thoroughly blended these two shades together.

3. 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.

4. Finally, I used a blending brush from my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette (all ABH palettes come with the same double-sided brush) to properly blend all four shades together.

Eyeko London Skinny Liquid Eyeliner review

Step 4: It’s Eyeliner Time!

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: Use Concealer to Fix Your Eyeliner Mistakes

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. It helps to create an even sharper eyeliner look.

Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara review

Step 6: Lashes Time!

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: Natural Contour & Highlight 

To make my complexion a bit more radiant and healthy-looking, I applied the blush and highlighter from the Pixi by Petra Palette Rosette (UPDATE: it was a limited-edition palette that is no longer available; check out the latest complexion palettes by Pixi Beauty instead).

Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Driver’s Seat review

Step 8: The Liquid Lip Action

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: Set That Look

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

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.

  3. 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!

    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.
