tarte’s Director of PR/ Resident Fashion Maven ‘SPILLS’ on what products are in her bag
CCB: From hip hop to pop, I’m constantly switching up my iPod! I’d have to say my top 3 picks are: Cinderella Man by Eminem, Midnight Show by The Killers and Kanye West’s Flashing Lights. For cool down there’s nothing better than a little Africa by Toto.
JC: Candace’s hair = Barbie. Spill the beans on how you keep your hair so healthy?
CCB: You’re too kind! First off, I have to thank my mom for genetics. She has super thick hair, too. While I don’t really want to admit it, I don’t wash my hair that often (maybe 2-3 times/week)! That’s one of my key secrets. I’m all about dry shampoo in between washes. I’ve tried them all—Oscar and Klorane are two of my favorites. As for styling products, I’m a big proponent of Moroccan oil. I’ve been using it for over 8 years. Also, I’m all about supplements. On a daily basis, I take a multi-vitamin and an Omega 3-6-9, which helps promote healthy hair.
JC: You live a green lifestyle and I know your metro card is an essential. Have any other earth-friendly recommendations for getting around this summer?
CCB: It sounds simple, but I put on my Havaianas and walk to work! If I’m visiting my parents or traveling for a weekend, I love riding a bike to get places.
JC: Page turning ‘Must- Read’ recommendation for the beach blanket?
CCB: That’s one of my favorite things about the summer—turning off the electronics and enjoying some lazy time reading a new book. Right now, I have “Water for Elephants” in my bag and I’m most certainly picking up Chelsea Handler’s latest book “Lies Chelsea Handler Told Me.”
JC: I don’t think I’ve ever seen you in the office without a fabulous pair of Jimmy Choos or Louboutins. Do you have a favorite style?
CCB: At 5’1”, I’m all about a platform heel! Those are my absolutely favorites. Over the summer, I’ll take a wedge heel any day and in the winter months there’s nothing like a boot that gives you the appearance of long legs (ahhh a girl can dream, right?)
JC: What’s your ‘desert island’ lip product and why?
CCB: Hmm…that’s a tough one! I swear you’ll find at least 5 variations of lip products in my bag and depending on my mood I’ll opt for pink, coral or red. If I had to pick one it would have to be our LipSurgence™ natural lip tints. I’m obsessed with these, especially amused paired with bronzed skin. Just gorgeous! Can’t go wrong with it!!
So tartelettes tell us……….what’s in your bag?
