tarte teacher makeup tutorial

Ok, guys. I am not a makeup artist, but I thought I would try my hand at a makeup tutorial for an every day teacher look. It’s a bit of a train wreck, but you gotta start somewhere! Feel free to check it out and I promise to keep improving from here!

This set from Tarte has a lot of great, natural-looking products for a professional, work look and I definitely recommend it! Contrary to my comment at the beginning, it IS still available on QVC at the time of this post.
