What’s In My Makeup Bag: Tata Harper’s Makeup Monday
Take a peek into this simple and elegant makeup collection from a natural beauty all-star, Tata Harper. Her emphasis on glow mirrors the very product line she’s created. We would never judge, but we’re tickled that Tata’s makeup choices are as clean as the ingredients in her own line.
Name: Tata Harper
Where I Live: Shoreham, Vermont
My relationship with makeup: I am a huge beauty lover and always have been, but ironically not a huge makeup user. For me it has always been about starting with amazing skin (which is where my skincare line comes in), and then using makeup to add colorful accents, and to make my skin look extra glowy. In terms of makeup categories, I don’t own anything powdery — all of my makeup is creamy and enhances the skin’s natural luster and highlights. That said, I love bold, bright colors (for example, I never wear black), and my makeup selections definitely reflect that.
Foundation: While I usually don’t wear foundation, if it’s a special occasion or we’re filming video, I even things out by adding a bit of Vapour foundation to my Repairative Moisturizer as a dewy base.
Eyes: I prefer lighter mascara; the kind I have been using lately is by Ilia and it’s very dark brown. For eyeliner, I like to use something shiny and bright rather than dark, to give a little sparkle. I love RMS’ cream eyeshadow in Solar and usually apply it with a really thin brush just along the edge of my lashes.
Cheeks: On my cheeks I love a pop of red or pink right on the apple. I’ve been using my own Be Adored lip treatment lately, which has a really rich raspberry color that you can massage right in to the cheeks with your finger for a little natural blush color. I also love Vapour’s blush stick in Courtesan and Spark.
Lips: Every day, I use my Be Adored lip treatment. It’s all-natural of course, with a rich raspberry color, and has anti-aging ingredients that help boost volume and fight lip lines while hydrating. It’s a color that pretty much goes with everything. I also love Ilia’s lipsticks for occasions that call for a little extra color; I love their Wild Child and Bang Bang colors.
Glow: To me, gorgeous, striking skin has an irresistible glow that looks healthy and happy. I love to promote that look in my own skin with our Replenishing Nutrient Complex, a multivitamin facial oil serum that blends right in, but it’s amazing because if softens the skin, smooths it out, and absorbs quickly to leave a healthy glow. I also love RMS’ Living Luminizer, to put right on the cheekbones and under the eyebrows for a beautiful shine.
