Hello tartelettes!

My name is Koryn and I’m the tarte™ team’s new community manager, which means I’ll be blogging and tweeting to keep you updated on the latest tarte info, newest beauty news, and the hottest – and greenest – lifestyle tends.

Before joining the tarte team I was a writer and editor at marieclaire.com where I covered both fashion and beauty – and while I do love fashion, my love for makeup up has been a lifelong obsession. I love the fact that a swipe of mascara or a dab of lipstick can instantly change your look and your mood. You could say I’m a bona fide beauty junkie.

I first fell in love with tarte’s natural cheek stains, but was really hooked when I learned the philosophy behind the brand. Basically, they live by their name: high-performance naturals™. The makeup is made from clinically-tested natural ingredients that are actually good for your skin; tarte never uses parabens or phthalates, and offers vegan products. Plus, tarte has an incredible selection of colors, innovative products and beautiful, eco-friendly packaging that can be reused  – put all that together and it’s hard to find a better makeup brand.  My current favorites are the tarte™ for True Blood™ limited-edition natural cheek stain (and when they say limited, they mean limited, so get it now!) and LipSurgence™ natural lip tint in moody.

Along with bringing you great beauty products, tarte has a team of makeup artists who will be sharing pro tips and tricks with you via twitter and this blog. You’ll get an opportunity to meet them and learn what products and tools to use in order to enhance you features. We’ll also be profiling  celebrity makeup artists, well-known beauty bloggers and other industry insiders – so stay tuned!

I’m so excited to be working for tarte and want to encourage all of you to keep in touch  –  let me know what you’d like to read and talk about by reaching out via twitter @tartecosmetics and Facebook.
