The search for the perfect matte fall eyeshadow palette is officially over. The Tartelette Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette by Tarte has everything you need to slay a killer fall look. Matte shadows are fantastic for creating a range of looks; however, they really shine in natural and smokey effects. This palette also comes with one of the most important colors for fall, those delicious plum shades.
The other thing I really love about this palette is how perfect it is for taking a more natural day look into a smoked-out evening look. Their shades blend together seamlessly, making it super easy to add and diffuse additional colors, even hours after you first applied your initial shadows.
After all, there's nothing worse than getting home from work (or a shopping spree) then going to freshen up and intensify your makeup for a night out than to realize that your eyeshadows somehow migrated right off your lids. It's like, where does it even go? I hate eyeshadows that aren't long-lasting, I don't know about you, but when I put my makeup on, I like to have it stay on all day (or night). Is that really too much to ask? Sadly, for a lot of brands, I guess so. Ugh.
Not so with the Tarte Clay Mattes, thank the makeup gods. These shadows mean business, long wear, perfect-pigmentation, beautiful-blendability business. I am here for it. The shades are just so flattering. There's really nothing sexier than a minimal, natural, soft, smokey eyeshadow look. There's just something special about it, and it's easy to walk out in confidence knowing that your sophisticated, yet natural makeup is bringing out your best features in a subtle way. You know what I mean? Sometimes you just want something that looks effortless and timelessly classic. You don't need to worry about sparkles or shimmer smearing or blending out strangely. Or maybe you don't have the time to work with shimmery shades, after all, if you miss the mark placement wise you can quickly end up with a clownish vibe, especially if you're working with more vibrant colors. (We've all been there, no shame).
So, for the times when you want something more understated, soft, and sensual and timeless, mattes are where you turn, and there's no better palette (for fall especially) than the Tarte Clay Mattes. It's got beautiful warm nudes, a soft pinkish plum, rich chocolates that are an absolute dream to blend out and of course, those deep, vibrant, and sexy fall plum shades. It doesn't get any better.
