One of my favorite brands for eyeshadows is Tarte and their Tarteist Pro palette is the prettiest and perfect for Spring! I’ve got a really simple tutorial for you lovely readers today. It’s been a while since I’ve done a makeup tutorial and I thought this look would be perfect for starting out the new season (although it’s currently snowing #why)! Also, side note: happy first day of Spring! It’s 62 out right now (WAT.) and I’m loving it 😍 🙋🏻

This look is a combo of a halo eye and smokey eye, which are two of my favorite types of eyeshadow techniques. There is a lighter shade in the center of my eye (halo) and a darker shade in the corner (smokey eye), but don’t let that scare you!
I’ve been using the Maybelline Dream Velvet foundation which I’ve shared my love for before. I used a tiny bit of concealer and powder and topped with just a little blush. I blended everything in using my beautyblender! I’ve been using the contour kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills which is amazing. Since it’s a powder, if you make a mistake you can just blend it out (aka the perfect kit for beginners).
Now that we’ve got the basics covered, let’s get into some eye details. This eyeshadow look is all from the Tarte Tarteist Pro palette which makes it easy since you won’t be switching in between several palettes (something I do frequently, oops!). I started with mixing ‘classic’ and ‘vintage’ all over my eyelid. ‘Profesh’ was next and I applied this onto my crease with a fluffy brush. I took a smokey eye brush and applied ‘mod’ into the outer corner of my eye and applied just a touch of ‘glam’ into the inner eye corner (for a little shimmer).
Once my eyeshadow is done, I move in on the eyeliner, mascara, highlighter (look at that GLOW), and brows. I know you may be a little shocked, but I didn’t use any liquid eyeliner. I took the Rodial eye shadow stick and lined my top water line. It’s actually supposed to be used as cream eyeshadow but it works perfectly for lining and adding a little bit of depth to my eyes without actually looking like I used eyeliner. I’ve been using this mascara from Maybelline and it’s my new favorite! I swear drugstore mascara is da best. Please excuse my brows, they’ve been misbehaving lately 😉 And my lipstick is the shade famous from Smashbox.
Hope you all have a fantastic Monday and first day of Spring! And don’t forget to enter my giveaway for $1,500 worth of Spring clothes that are trending right now!
