Golden Plum Makeup feat. Tarte’s Rainforest After Dark Amazonian Clay Palette

Today I have another fall look for you guys, created using the Tarte Rainforest After Dark  Amazonian Clay Palette. For this makeup, I used the plummy tones and paired them with a peachy lip. I wanted to create a very wearable look one could use for holiday gatherings or an evening out. It’s a pretty easy makeup that I feel could be universally flattering and you can recreate the look using any products you have. The Tarte Rainforest After Dark Palette is one of my favorite for Fall so I had to use it. If you haven’t noticed Tarte is one of my top brands.

Okay, let’s get started with the makeup!

Here’s a look at the palette I used. For this look, I stuck to the plummy purple side.

I also pulled the color out on the outer corner to create a smokey look. You could stop here and slap on some mascara if you want but I just had to add gold. LOL.

I brought “Plum Away With Me” down on the lower lash line and blended it out with “Make a Mauve” make it nice and smokey. Then added the gold on the inner portion. Basically mirroring what I did on the upper lid.

On my face, I used the bronzer, blush, and highlighter from the palette and for foundation I used the Revlon Photo Ready Air Brush Effect Foundation, The Revlon Photo Ready Concealer and Revlon Photo Ready Setting Powder.

For my lips, I used a combination of two products. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi and Tarte Lipsurgence in Caring in the center to add more color.

  1. Makeup Revolution has a similar palette. I don’t know if it’s a dupe but they do look very similar. I personally do not know own the palette but I have heard good things about Makeup Revolution eyeshadows and they are very affordable. Do check it out and perhaps write about it? Would make for a great post!
