girl crush: Emma Roberts

  With famous pops Eric and ultra-famous aunt Julia, some might say that Emma Roberts was born to be a Hollywood star. Maybe, but one thing we know for sure is that this girl has talent, poise and style. Sweet faced and wholesome, she seems like the type of girl we’d be friends with, she also possesses a subtle yet playful fashion sense and some serious acting chops, making her our girl crush of the day.

 

girl crush: Elizabeth Olsen

We’re not going to lie: when we were growing up, we drew most of our fashion inspiration from a mischief-making pair of girls who went by the singular title of “Mary-Kate and Ashley.” Even now, we still find ourselves seeking out the latest photo shoots and interviews of the stylish duo to find out what we should be wearing. So, when younger sister Elizabeth appeared on the Hollywood scene last year, we thought, “Poor girl! Who could stand out from the long shadow of MK&A?”

We needn’t have worried. Little Lizzie has proven to be a full-blown actress and style maven in her own right. With her ability to rock both vintage glam and hipster cool, she’s our new favorite girl crush.

“I knew I wanted to create a playful and colorful look for Hailee, to compliment her exquisite Prada dress.” – Stephen Sollitto, celebrity makeup artist

 

To begin Stephen used tarte’s Amazonian clay waterproof concealer in medium to even out Hailee’s complexion.He then used tarte’s airbrush finish bamboo foundation brush to buff in Hailee’s Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation with Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in medium to create a flawless complexion.

 

Cheeks:

-Stephen used tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in exposed, a warm nude, on the apples of her cheeks and along her cheekbones.

 

Eyes : 

-He started by applying tarte’s  Amazonian clay waterproof cream eyeshadow in plum smoke on her lids.

-To add further definition, he used tarte’s smolderEYES™ Amazonian clay waterproof liner in bronze as a shadow along Hailee’s lash line to make her eyes pop.

-He finished by lining her eyes with tarte’s Amazonian clay waterproof eyeliner in black.

-For extra volume Stephen applied two coats of tarte’s lights, camera lashes!™ 4-in-1 clinically-proven mascara.

girl crush: Lana Del Rey

Love her music or hate it, there’s no arguing that, in the short time she’s been on the scene, Lana Del Rey has made quite the splash. Since her web debut last summer, the girl has already performed on Saturday Night Live, appeared on the cover of Vogue UK, won multiple “best new artist” awards, and sparked a lot of conversations.

This blogger happens to find her songs equal parts sultry, sticky (try getting “Video Games” out of your head), and addictive. Del Rey’s stuff is like sugary cereal: there’s not much to it, but it tastes good. And her sartorial style’s refreshing, too: amidst a pop music scene dominated by the outlandishness of Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry, the self-described “gangster Nancy Sinatra” stands out by looking bad-ass and polished at the same time. Del Rey’s style is a combination of old-school glamour (winged eye liner, lady-like dresses), major bombshell appeal, rock star edge (tats and gold rings) – and the occasional quirky sneaker thrown in for good measure.

This unapologetic mix of style, attitude and saccharine makes the up-and-coming songstress our girl crush of the day. Who’s your girl crush?

What was the draw to yoga, how did you start practicing? 
I started practicing yoga 10 years ago, with my mother. I thought it was totally weird. I discovered later on that yoga is not weird, I am.

I have a daily morning practice — each day feels new with yoga. Each pose has it’s benefits and challenges, just like each step in life.

What should a yoga newbie keep in mind when attending their first class?
Keep in mind: Go back to the mat. Whatever feelings come up, go back to the mat.

 What’s one pose or group of poses that can be discretely done at your desk?

Side-leans. Hold one arm of the chair and  raise your opposite arm, keeping it straight, then lean over the left and right side. Take three deep breaths on each side.

What does the phrase ‘well-being’ mean to you?

Well-being is a belief. You must believe in your own well-being otherwise you health is lacking. We have the power to choose our own thoughts, and to make them positive.

Grace.

What’s your hidden talent?

What are some of your yoga must-haves?

best-dressed at Coachella

April showers is right! This past weekend was dreary through much of the northeast. But, in California, the weather was sunny and cheerful – perfect for Coachella. Thousands of celebs and regular folk alike flocked to the music fest for an epic lineup that included big names like The Black Keys and Dr. Dre, as well as some of our indie favorites (St. Vincent!)

With the Woodstock vibe that pervades this particular festival, the go-to style is hippie or hipster chic – usually, with a beachy twist (bikinis being de rigeuer) — we wished we could have gone ourselves to soak up some sun and sounds, but we’ll settle for some glamorous photos instead.  Below, a few of the best-dressed women at Coachella.

Kate Bosworth was a festival style star, rocking both ends of the spectrum in a skintight dress one day and cut-offs the next.

“Tiger-print romper” might sound unappealing, but Emma Watson can do no fashion wrong. We love how she combined this wild piece with neutral, stylish accessories.

We’re used to seeing Lauren Conrad all dressed up, so we really dig her relaxed and carefree look .

Lindsay Lohan looked put-together in a lace romper and matching, sky-high  lace-up shoes.

Diane Kruger ran around in fun nautical pattern and low booties, looking both casual and chic — you can’t go wrong with sailor stripes!

Mischa Barton, looking fresh and healthy, rocked California-casual: keds and cutoffs.

 

girl crush: Lily Collins

 

Lily Collins is the cutest thing since that baby panda sneezed on YouTube…she has amazing style and a gorgeous set of killer brows that make Brooke Shield’s look sparse. With her flawless porcelain skin and black-as-night tresses, she was the obvious choice for the role of Snow White in the fairytale remake “Mirror Mirror.”

Off screen the girl has an eye for fashion appointing her our girl crush of the week.

our favorite eco-friendly scents

When you’re trying to maintain an earth-friendly lifestyle, some areas are harder to fulfill than others. We would argue that perfume is actually the easiest of all. Many mainstream perfumeries are starting to focus on organic and non-animal ingredients, while other smaller companies have made it their mission to only use plants whose farming won’t endanger the environment. Check out some of our favorite eco-conscious perfume brands below.

With scents this lovely, there’s no reason not to go green.

Lush

Lush makes a wide range of pretty scents from organic ingredients and safe synthetics, and, as always, never test on animals. Try Cocktail, a pretty floral.

Rich Hippie

RH’s products are 100% natural and made from organically-farmed flowers in small batches – truly the embodiment of eco-friendly fashion. Try Devotion, a sexy combination of French lemon and Moroccan verveine.

Pacifica

Surfer Brook Taylor loves the earth – so when she decided to make a scent, she made it her priority to honor it. All of her fragrances adhere to strict IFRA regulations and are made from plants that are not endangered. Plus, they smell gorgeous – try Tahitian Gardenia.

Krysten Ritter’s b——’ style

If you haven’t been watching Don’t trust the B—- in Apt 23, you’re missing out. It’s a snarky, funny take on growing up, friendship, and the realities of making it in New York, all led by the delight that is Krysten Ritter. Yes, the gorgeous actress plays a true eye-rolling, conniving, back-stabbing, b-word, and she looks like she’s loving every minute of it. (We are, too.)

Throw in the fact that Ritter’s indie film, Life Happens — which she wrote and stars in — opens nation wide today, and you could call this girl a full-fledged entertainment phenom! You may recall we hosted a little shindig in honor of her flick earlier this week – all lip makeup featured in the movie is exclusively tarte!

Not only is Ritter quirky and hilarious, but she’s also got fabulous style, a cool mix of girly and badass — plus she’s a longtime tartelette. We’ve recapped some of our favorite looks below.

Ritter proves that she can look just as gorgeous in muted colors, here in an ethereal floral gown at the 2010 Hollywood Style Awards.

She’s even cool in real life. On her way to an appearance, Ritter rocks a red peplum dress, jacket, and covetable rocker boots.

Happy Spring! We love the all-out brights, from head to toe — and we want those shoes!
