Tarte Park Ave Princess Contour Palette

posted on: Sunday, February 22, 2015

I received this amazing Tarte Park Ave Princess Contour Palette as a gift from my mom back during Christmas and I have been using it nearly everyday since! I've been switching up my blush (because I have too many blushes that I love), but I have been leaning towards using the bronzer and the highlighter in this palette most days. The bronzer is great because it is matte, and the blush and highlighter are just beautiful. The colours that come in the palette are the bronzer in Park Ave Princess, blush in Posh, and highlighter in Champagne Gold. 

Have you tried the Park Ave Princess Contour Palette? What's your favourite Tarte product? I'd also love to hear your suggestions for my next Tarte blush purchase!

This is an outfit I threw together last weekend when I took my sister shopping for her birthday. I was running a little late to pick up my sister, so it was super easy to throw on this sweater and be ready to go! I love that the sweater has this lace layer already attached! It was also pretty snowy and cold so I had to grab a cozy scarf to stay warm.

I also wanted to mention that I am completely head of heals for this Daniel Wellington watch! If you have had your eye on one, you can get 15% off of your purchase of a Daniel Wellington watch with the code 'lionslacelattes' until Feb. 15th!

Make Up For Ever | Give In To Me Collection

By now you all know that I am quite a big fan of Make Up For Ever. I don't think I've tried a product by the brand that I haven't loved. So, it will come as no surprise when I say I am absolutely loving the limited edition Give In To Me face and eyes collection. The makeup set is based off of the makeup worn by the character Ana from the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

Whether you check out the limited edition makeup set because you are a fan of the book/movie or a fan of the brand, the value of this set is incredible! In it you get four artist shadows (Pink Ivory, Taupe Grey, Silver Brown, and Reptile), the Smoky Extravagant Mascara a Lab Shine lipgloss in D14, the Graphic Eyeliner, and a Rouge Artist Natural lipstick in N4. 

Instructions to create three looks from the movie come with face and eyes collection, with makeup tips right from Victoria Dawn, the head of the makeup department on set of Fifty Shades of Grey. There are also countless other ways you can create makeup looks with this collection. I've already been playing around with the eyeshadows quite a bit and am loving the versatility of the eyeshadow quad! 

If you love Make Up For Ever you should definitely check out this set, and if you are interested I'll be posting up some makeup looks using this set soon!
