How I use Tarte Lock & Roll Eye Shadow Duos...

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Before I got received my EyeQuatic Set with the three Lock & Roll...I had one..Slate...that I could never get to work right...

So, I was playing around with my new ones and thought, "Maybe if I apply with a brush and not the applicator itself...?"

Because Tarte tell you this: apply the cream side first with the brush and then roll( it has a roller ball) the other end( loose color) on top after 10 seconds or until dry for all day wear...

This is what I do:

-apply the cream shadow where you want it on the eye from the original applicator brush included. DO NOT LET IT DRY. Immediately take a brush afte putting where you want it, one with a rounded tip( I used a cheap synthetic brush) and blend the color, getting rid of the harsh lines it creates when dry. Because after the color dries, it won't move. You want to blend the lines and press color down on lid and even the color out.

-then roll the loose color onto the back of you hand or a tissue to get the color out, take a clean brush( not the one you used for the cream shadow application) and pat the color in...


-Voila!! that's it! Check out my examples...



This is Slate( on the lid) with two colors of pink from my Santee palettes...


This is Tanzanite(on the lid) with two colors of purple from Santee palettes....


This is Turquoise( on the lid) and Citrine( on the brown bone) with a brown from a Wet N'Wild palette...
I love them...they last ALL DAY and are gorgeous and a must have once you figure out how to use them...:)
