Ladies, admit it, smoky eyes, red lips and matte makeup are all fashionable and in style but, sometimes we’re still harbouring our inner desires to play dress up in a make-believe way. After all, who are we kidding, it's always fun to mix neutral tones with bright shades to experience a whimsical masterpiece. And to indulge in a fantasy like this, we’ve decided to bring you the new ‘Be A Mermaid & Make Waves’ eyeshadow palette by Tarte, just so you can experiment looks that you’ve been craving to achieve!
The mermaid-inspired eyeshadow palette houses 14 matte and metallic shades, all stashed in a dreamy, iridescent seashell compact. The palette provides glimmering neutrals, jewel tones and aquatic hues in matte & metallic formulas to create looks fit for a sea siren.
The shades in this palette consist of nude beach (pale gold luster), shore thing (sienna), frosé (rose gold luster), beach please (maroon luster), mermosa (warm gold), cavern (burgundy luster), fin-tastic (antique bronze), sandbar (milk chocolate), salt water (pale taupe luster), shipwreck (mahogany), shell yea (bronze luster), bubbles (lilac duochrome), splash (turquoise luster) and lagoon (teal luster).
Now, just seize one good look at the swatches below and you will be convinced that this baby is a must-have!
Thanks to the Amazonian clay (helps nourish your skin naturally and effectively with its natural minerals), mineral pigments (to soothe and soften the skin) and vanilla extract (a natural fragrance with rich antioxidant and anti-aging properties) infused in the formula, the creamy powder blends beautifully onto the eyelids to prevent pigment creasing or fading.
Just to give you some ideas, here are ways you can create a mermaid look to go on the dry land:
Throw on a rust-hued eyeshadow for a badass sultry look. You can opt for bold shades for the eyes and keep the lips calm with a nude lip. We won't sugarcoat it, you will need some skills to bring this look to life. On a scale of 1 to 5, this is a 4. It's intricate, messy and takes some patience.
Take notes ladies, bright and bold makeup is the key to looking fresh. You can pair this eye makeup with rosy cheeks and lips and a stunning wavy hair do. To make sure that the shadow last throughout the day, apply a cream eyeshadow with your fingers first before applying the shades on.
For a romantic night out, opt for soft lilac eyeshadow paired with full-on nude lips. The key to bringing this look to life is by ensuring that the rest of your face is kept simple. You can always start with a lightweight foundation, that'll provide a smooth base for layering. And then set your base with a fluffy brush and light dusting of translucent powder, and finish it off with a soft pink blush!
