Makeup and Muses: Amazonian Clay by tarte

As most of you know, I'm not the #1 makeup maven on the block. But that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy wearing makeup that makes my skin look and feel better. Hence my interest in tarte cosmetic's Amazonian Clay collection. The collection features cosmetics infused with clay taken straight from the Amazon River.

The Amazon River collects nutritious fruit and plant matter during its 4,000 mile journey. This clay is collected at the river basin and then harvested in an eco-friendly and sustainable process. The clay is then baked in the sun so the fruit and plant nutrients are preserved. Finally, the clay is shaved into a fine powder before making its way into makeup products like sunscreen, bronzer, tinted moisturizer and waterproof concealer, among many others.

My favorite products from tarte's Amazonian Clay collection are the 12-hour full coverage foundation with broad spectrum SPF 15 sunscreen, the 12-hour waterproof concealer, and the double detox exfoliating facial mask.
The 12-hour full coverage foundation is long lasting. Once we get back into autumn, you'll truly appreciate the full coverage, especially since it feels light and provides a natural look. You can blend and build on the satin-matte finish. The Amazonian Clay reduces dryness and removes oils from the skin's surface.

Concealer is something that a lot of girls swear by--and I can see why with a cosmetic like this 12-hour waterproof concealer by tarte. It's that final step that hides discoloration and skin impurities. For me, that means bye bye breakouts and blemishes. Apply it with your fingers if you wish and have it last all day long.

Last, but certainly not least, is the double detox exfoliating facial mask in the Amazonian Clay collection. This product is more about skincare than makeup, but we all know that a great look starts with a great foundation. The facial mask resurfaces and purifies skin in as little as five weeks. Perfect for even the most sensitive skin types! This, of course, is great for my eczema skin, and everyone loves a good detox every now and then.

So kick it up a notch and start taking care of your skin with these products by tarte cosmetics. Begin with a facial mask that purifies your skin, then add in a full coverage foundation that includes SPF 15 sunscreen--your face will thank you for it as you age. And take a page from Beyonce and keep it flawless with all-day waterproof concealer.
