In a series of recent posts to Instagram, Tarte Cosmetics revealed the brand's newest lustworthy product: the Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight and Contour Palette ($45).
Housed inside are four seriously shimmery highlighting powders and two chiseling hues (one cream, one powder), which all boast crease- and flake-free, easily blended formulas. Fans of the company know that this is far from being Tarte's first sculpting set, but this one was specially designed.
"These shades are more cool toned," a caption on Instagram read, "to mimic how light and shadows naturally reflect on your skin."
Think about it: warmer contouring hues may read more like bronzer or blush on your face, resulting in a complexion that could look obviously chiseled by makeup. Tarte is right in stating that cooler undertones naturally appear in real shadows on skin (examine the hollows of your cheeks closely!).
By incorporating a grayish tint in the brand's new palette, that will ensure that these products — especially the cream contour — provide a realistic sculpt and highlight. Those new to contouring as well as seasoned pros will find a place in their stashes for this. Read on to see swatches and to shop the palette!
