Tarte Unleashed 15-Pan Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette ($39.00 for 0.645 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette with a mix of rosy and warm-toned neutrals with pops of mid-tone teal and deeper blue-teal. I really enjoyed the palette from a quality standpoint, and I’m not always a fan of Tarte’s eyeshadows (often the mattes are too powdery), but these had a lot of intensity, good substance, and were easy to work with.
About This Series
Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease.
You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!
