When it comes to make-up, I’ve always considered myself a minimalist. Most days my make-up routine includes a bit of blush and some mascara. I’ve never used high quality make-up, but this year when my parents asked what I wanted for Christmas, I told them I’d love to invest in some.
So off I went with my Christmas money and explored all that Ulta had to offer. Learning about make-up was like being exposed a whole new world. I knew that I wanted to go with a natural line, so thankfully that limited the overwhelming amount of product lines I had to look into. After chatting with several beauty consultants from the natural/mineral brands, I ended up deciding on Tarte for a few different reasons. Their products are full of healthy and nourishing ingredients including amazonion clay and maracuja oil. Our skin has the ability to absorb so much, and I want to make sure I’m not feeding it unhealthy, synthetic formulas. I also liked Tarte because it fit with my minimalist mentality and doesn’t require me to cake on the layers. The way they suggest to apply the products includes just enough to add a little freshness and to make certain features pop.
My new make-up routine includes putting concealer under my eyes, brushing on a little bit of amazonion clay powder all over which actually goes on clear, adding a little color with blush and bronzer, and finally some eyeliner and mascara. It only takes me a few minutes, but I feel so natural and fresh!
