FOTD! Tarte Rust and Gold


Every time I film a video I always get questions about the makeup I’m wearing.  Until I get more comfortable filming tutorials, I’m going to try to post pictures of the makeup that I’m wearing in each video.

In this video I wasn’t feeling like a really heavy makeup, because I had just filmed that Halloween look that had dark smokey eyes and then black tears running down my face.  So I went rather simple, playing up some of the fall colors.

On my face:

  • NYX HD Studio Photogenic Primer
  • Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten Baked Foundation in Fair
  • Garnier Anti-Dark Circile
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (just to set the concealer under my eye)
  • Milani Baked Blush in Rose d’Oro
  • Lips: Tarte Lipsurgence Matte Finish in Exposed

On my eyes:

  • Tarte eye primer
  • Tarte Dawn (a shimmery warm champagne) in my inner corner, first third of the lid and brow highlight (all shadows from the Tarte for True Blood Palette)
  • Tarte Bayou (very warm gold shimmer with a slight orange tone) in the center of my lid
  • Tarte Charmer (rusty reddish orange shimmer) in the outer third of my lid
  • Tarte Dusk (matte warm cafe au late light brown) as my best friend color and in my crease
  • Tarte Werewolf (matte medium toned brown) to darken the outer v
  • Wet n Wild Coloricon Pencil in Bronze on my waterline
  • Tarte Bayou to set the Wet n Wild pencil
  • Mac Blitz n Glitz Fluid Line gel liner (black with gold shimmer)
  • Loreal Full Definition Mascara

With a Flash

What do you think? Does anyone besides me like to wear fall colors in their makeup?

    • awwww thank you! basically a best friend color is normally a medium to lighter matte color that you put right on your crease and a little above. its used to blend your brow highlight color and the darker color you put in your crease to define it. hopefully that helps!

      • That helps a lot, thank you! I’d never heard the term before but the purpose makes a lot of sense. When I get to more than 3 colors of eyeshadow I start getting in trouble because I have trouble differentiating the effects of the 4th or 5th color, so now I know what to look for in the photos =-)

    • oh jeez thats a loaded question!!! i can name so many that i’ve loved over the years! its easier to say which ones i don’t like than which ones i do. i normally stick with drugstore mascaras but i have tried higher end. i just go through mascara so fast that i can’t justify a $30 price tag when i can get something just as good for $7. i’ll just go through some that i like from different drugstore brands. covergirl: lash blast, maybelline: lash stiletto, lash stiletto volume and colossal volume (theres also 3 or 4 from maybelline i want to try), loreal: full definition, million lashes, false fiber lashes, carbon black, revlon: grow luscious, rimmel: glam eyes. did i miss any of the drugstore brands? hopefully this is helpful!
