    ICYMI, Tarte Cosmetics has brought back its popular custom kit sale event for makeup enthusiasts just in time for the holidays, and the savings are HUGE. For two days only (11/2-11/4), you can create your own holiday custom kit filled with seven full-size products for just $65.

    If this is the first time you're hearing of Tarte's super cool promo, we're glad you did. Now, here's how it works:

    After this you'll have six full-size makeup products plus a fancy makeup bag all for $65. 

    1. First, ditch the lash extensions and choose one of Tarte's popular mascaras. Whether you're looking for volume or length, there's an option for you.

    I went with the Maneater™ Mascara because it gives drama. I'm all about long, voluminous lashes and this mascara provides both. It even stays on for 16 hours — that's nearly every waking hour.

    2. Now on to my favorite part of any makeup look: lips. There's so much versatility when it comes to choosing a lipstick — matte, glossy, satin, sheet, etc.

    For my lips, I chose Tarteist™ Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint because it's quick-drying and lasts for up to eight hours which is amazing for a lipstick.

    3. At this point, you're nearly halfway through creating the makeup bag of your dreams, seriously. Now, onto the eyes. Pick one of Tarte's gorgeous palettes or highly-pigmented mascaras and brow pencils.

    I chose the Double Take Eyeliner because of its double-ended stick with both gel and liquid liner. The precise tip allows for the creation of the perfect cat eye with a flick of the wrist.

    4. Next, it's time to finish off your base with a face product. Hide those dark circles or achieve those ultra-rosy cheeks with concealers and blush. You can only pick one, so choose wisely!

    I went for the Timeless Smoothing Primer so I could achieve a smooth base for my makeup. Infused with vitamin C and vitamin E, this primer brightens and smooths for a luminous finish.

    5. Now it's time for a very important step: your foundation. Whether you're looking for full-coverage or a dewy finish, Tarte has you covered.

    I chose the Babassu Foundcealer™ Skincare Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 because it's a triple threat with moisturizer, concealer, and foundation all in one. Plus, it provides a radiant glow which I could always use.

    6. Last but not least, choose a makeup brush or skincare product.

    For the last item in my kit, I picked the Foundcealer™ Brush because I can apply my concealer and foundation with the same brush. No need for a Beautyblender when this high-density brush does all the buffing for you.
