For my first ever makeup tutorial, I use tarte cosmetics’ energy noir palette — and let me tell you, I am in love.
Every color in this palette is a color that works well with my skin tone. I’m cool-to-neutral, and this is definitely on the mauve/taupe/plum side of things, which is simply perfection.
The shadows are so easily blendable and buildable. There’s not a lot of fallout, and they don’t irritate my sometimes sensitive eyes.
A+, would buy again in a heartbeat.
