Summer Look with Tarte Cosmetics Feat. Lipsurgence Power Pigments

This is the summer of Tarte for me.  I love this brand because they are focused on creating cosmetics with the most natural ingredients, but it doesn't impinge on their ability to create amazing makeup.  I'm always curious to try Tarte's newest additions, and lately I haven't been disappointed.  Below are some of my favorites for an easy summer look.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation
I've tried mineral foundation in the past, but I was never drawn to it enough to reach for it frequently.  That is, until I got my hands on this.  I don't think I've ever had a foundation that was so easy to put on.  I just dip my Tarte Airbuki Brush into the powder and blend it on face for less than a minute, and finito!  I'm ready to go.  There is something special like fairy dust in the formula because it actually stays put for hours, unlike so many mineral foundations that just disappear the minute you start to perspire, which is a given since every morning my subway station feels like one of the circles of hell.  It also doesn't cake up if you feel like reapplying over the day.  One tip I would give is that the foundations tend to look darker on than they look in the pot, so go one shade lighter than you normally would.

The Tarte Power Pigments Lip Stain in Blissful 
The Power Pigments come in variety of wearable colors, but my favorite this summer has to be Blissful because the warm peach shade compliments every look. The best thing about this lip stain is that it is infused with shea butter, so it feels like lip balm,  and it has a touch of mint that tingles your lips with coolness, which is a nice surprise. And not to mention that this shade is a breeze to apply,  making it even subway ride approved. 

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Tipsy
I've had this blush for over a year, and I still adore it as much as I did when I first bought it. The Amazonian  Clay blushes are extremely pigmented, but wearable.  I've noticed that I gravitate towards this blush when I want my makeup to be perfect for the whole day because its lasting power is at least 8 hours.  With such a range of colors you're bound to find the perfect one for you, but I think that Tipsy is by far one of the most universal shades.  Everyone looks great in coral, and this is as coral as it gets.

Hope you're all having a great summer!
