L!fe Happens!

Last night we had the pleasure of hosting a screening of L!fe Happens, a hilarious new comedy written and starring one of our favorite Hollywood up-and-comers, Krysten Ritter. The film is the product of a collaboration between Ritter and one of her best friends Kat Coiro, and was cast and staffed with some of Ritter’s most-talented nearest and dearest, including celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine.

Nadine, a long time tarte fan — so is Ritter! — used our LipSurgence™ lip tints in every scene!

To celebrate the film’s premiere, we invited a group of beauty bloggers to join us for the screening, which included a Q&A with Ritter and Nadine!

 L!fe Happens beauty roll call: in the film Ritter wore our lip tint in spirited, while Kate Bosworth wore our matte lip tint in hope and Rachel Bilson wore our matte lip tint in lucky.



 

Get tweeting tartelettes and good luck!

girl crush: Kate Bosworth

Sporty and sweet with a touch of ethereal beauty, Kate Bosworth is the perfect mix of girl-next-door cute and Hollywood bombshell, and, if you ask us, totally crush worthy. Plus she’s a tartelette! She wore our LipSurgence matte lip tint in lively to the premiere of her newest movie, Life Happens  (also staring the amazing Krysten Ritter — check out the trailer below).  She rarely makes the tabloids — something else we love about her –  and has the skills to play campy, gloomy, sexy, or the dreaded best friend role and still rock the screen.

Who’s your girl crush?

Jennifer Lawrence: style recap

Jennifer Lawrence stole our hearts as the beleaguered daughter of a meth cooker in the darkly enthralling film Winter’s Bone. It was clear this girl could act. But it wasn’t until she stepped on the red carpet at last year’s Oscars that she showed us her other side: she can dress, too.

Since then, Lawrence has regularly wowed us with her daring style selections. She’s not afraid of a statement gown, glamorous makeup, or a quick hair-color change. Nor does she mind showing off her amazing bod, while never straying to the wrong side of risky.

Here, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite looks that Jennifer has rocked in the past year. With the Hunger Games coming out this Friday, we’re looking forward to seeing a lot more of this fashion-forward starlet!

In one of her first major appearances for Winter’s Bone – last years Golden Globes — Jennifer chose this electric pink cut-out number by Oscar de la Renta.

Who knew the scraggly West Virginian she played in her breakout role could transform into a Baywatch-esque bombshell? Jennifer did her first Academy Awards right, and caught the world’s attention in a minimalist, head-turning Calvin Klein number.

Jennifer loves red… and a bit of architecture. This sculpted Miu Miu silhouette is fun, and flattering.

We wonder, has Jennifer met a body-con dress she didn’t like? Doubt it. Here, she rocked a curve-hugging navy sheath and a new hair color for an appearance on David Letterman.

While most budding stars might shy away from wild fashion choices, Jennifer’s not afraid to play —  like she does here with this fantastical Viktor & Rolf cut-out piece.

Once again, the girl loves to show some skin, as with this amazing Tom Ford zipper dress —  but the sexiness is balanced by a long silhouette, demure heels, and youthful makeup. Perfection.

 

 

 

coffee break: celebs and their caffeine

There’s nothing like a hot cup of Joe, whether it’s first thing in the morning or any early afternoon pick-me-up — I love my coffee. And apparently, I’m not the only one; here are some candid shots of some of our favorite celebs caffeinating themselves in public.

Ryan Reynolds gets his caffeine fix with a furry friend.

 

 

Rachel Bilson grabs a cup of Joe on the go.

 

 

Miley Cyrus looks like she’s been up  all night….hope that’s a double shot in there…

 

 

It’s amazing how Mila Kunis can make grabbing an ice coffee in an awkward motion shot look lovely.

 

 

Michael Cerra wouldn’t be a true hipster without a coffe in his hand. But not Starbucks…that’s against hipster law.

 

 

Caffeine queen Mary-Kate Olsen’s hand has literally morphed into the shape of a Starbucks grande cup… true love or true addiction?

 

 

Kim Kardashion looks oh-so-chic with those oversized aviator sunnies and grande Starbucks…go Kim!

 

 

If Kate Hudson didn’t have that sip of coffe to keep her alert before stepping off this curb she might have fallen. Coffee….saving one life at a time.

 

 

Is it just us, or Emma Roberts taunting non-Californians with her  a tank top and iced coffee?  Yeah, we know, it’s always sunny in California.

Love birds Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux casually stroll side by side,  coffee cups in hand.

girl crush: Audrey Kitching

What’s not to love about Audrey Kitching?  Totally rock n’ roll, edgy and beautiful, the blogger, model and fashion designer is smart, sharp and a scene-stealer to be reckoned with. And she loves tarte — yes, that her applying our in LipSurgence™ matte lip tint lucky!

“Kristen wore a gorgeous princess dress, but it still had a bit of an edge to it, so I wanted to keep her look strong but still soft and pretty.” – Heba Thorisdottir, celebrity makeup artist

Complexion:
* To begin Heba used tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation with Broad Spectrum SPF 15, with tarte’s new airbrush finish bamboo foundation brush.

Cheeks:
*For dewy, sun-kissed cheeks, she applied tarte’s maracuja blush & glow brightening luminizer and cheek tint in sunlight along the apples of her cheeks, followed by a light dusting of tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in buff. The combination gave Kristen’s skin the perfect luminous finish.

Eyes:
* Heba wanted to play up Kristen’s blue eyes with a mixture of bronze and gold shadows. She started by covering her lids with a soft wash of shimmering golden peach from tarte’s neutralEYES eye shadow palette volume II.

*To add further definition, she applied tarte’s Amazonian clay waterproof cream eyeshadow in shimmering bronze along her lashlines and into her creases. Then she layered tarte’s Amazonian clay waterproof cream eyeshadow in slate in the center of her lids to reflect light.

*Then she lined her eyes with multiplEYE™ clinically-proven lash enhancing liquid liner, drawing outward for a mini cat-eye.

* She finished with two coats of tarte’s gifted Amazonian clay smart mascara.

Lips:
* To keep her look soft, Heba filled in her lips with tarte’s LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in exposed, then dabbed tarte’s maracuja divine shine lip gloss in glisten in the center of her lips for a touch of shine.

 Body:
*To create a soft glow, Heba dusted tarte’s new Amazon bronze body bronzer — coming soon — along her décolletage, shoulders and down her arms.
