tarte’s own blushing bride

We’ve got matrimony on the brain here at tarte. We recently launched our bridal page, are hosting a giveaway with Untamed Petals, and even have our own in-house bride-to-be! Our amazing account analyst Kim will be tying the knot in 9 days! To give her one last single-girl surprise, we planed a mini bridal shower full of best wishes, giddy tartelettes and sweet treats — these scrumptious cake pops, whipped up by our multi-talented senior graphic designer Erica!

best dressed of the CFDA awards

There is nothing I love more then red-hot stars on a red-hot carpet, and if there was ever an event to showcase extraordinary style, it’s the CFDA awards – the Council of Fashion Designers of America. When it comes to stunning styles and show-stopping looks, this year was no exception. Stars were turning heads and stealing headlines with amazing silhouettes, draping, and color.

It was hard to choose, but we narrowed it down to five ladies we feel deserve our red carpet best-dressed nod.

With all that talk of “lips as red as blood,” Snow White and the Huntsman has us inspired to revisit one of our favorite beauty weapons – the red lip.

Below, crimson shades for every occasion — ensuring that you’ll look the fairest of them all.
