Style Envy: Emily Blunt’s Modern Chic

We love our Brits: the attitude, the accents, the style! Take Emily Blunt for instance, she not only has amazing cheekbones but a fantastic fashion sense as well. Emily always looks put together and her classic, yet modern wardrobe makes her this week’s style star. Perhaps she picked up a few style tips while on the set of The Devil Wears Prada — but I have a hunch she was just born chic!

Absolutely adorable, fashionably fearless, we tip our trendy caps to you Emily.

Cheerio tartelettes!

Jen’s Pick: The Kind Life

Sure, Alicia Silverstone broke into the Hollywood A-list playing a ditzy, spoiled teen in 1995’s box office hit Clueless, but her most important role has been as an advocate for environment protection and healthy living.

And while the 2009 release of  her book The Kind Diet ultimately cemented Alicia’s leadership  in both the healthy living and animal cruelty movements, nothing speaks to her commitment to these causes more than her amazing blog called The Kind Life. The blog offers tips and advice on ways to live greener, healthier and cruelty-free lives.

I personally love The Kind Life. It has an amazing following with a ton of interaction. Alicia does a lot of research on the topics she discusses and posts photos featuring people’s success stories in changing their lives and living green. After looking over the blog, I went straight to Amazon and purchased her book. As you know, green living is very important to me and I jump at any opportunity to incorporate new tips or advice into my daily life.

This is my shout out to Alicia Silverstone, a true Green Queen!

How are you fighting to care for our Earth and help diminish your carbon footprint?

 

 

 

Style Envy: Liv Tyler’s Classic Look

For a girl who says style isn’t one of her priorities, she definitely sports some stunning outfits. Then again, working with Rachel Zoe to update your wardrobe can’t hurt.

The daughter of rocker Steven Tyler and model Bebe Buell, Liv Tyler has spent most of her life in the spotlight, and over the years has transformed her usually low-key style to a more sleekly classic wardrobe — making her a full-force fashionista. And I might add, she’s looking more lean and fit than ever. Perhaps her more conservative style will eventually rub off on her parents.

Five stars for Liv Tyler. Rock on!

 

Love Liv’s perma-rosy cheeks? You can recreate the look with our Amazonia clay 12-hour blush in dollface, then finish off with a dab of  our LipSurgence™ lip luster lip tint in adored.

Jen’s Pick: Pumpkin Body Mask

 

Fall is here and pumpkin is back on the menu! And while nothing beats a skinny pumpkin latte, this season try some pumpkin on your body — not just in it.

It’s no secret that stars like Audrina Patridge have been known to favor natural ingredients in their beauty potions. Packed with vitamins  A, C, and zinc,  pumpkin is the perfect gift from nature to  achieve a radiant complexion for fall. And the best part, I’ve got on the info you need to whip up an incredible mask DIY-style in your kitchen. Audrina, if you’re reading, this treat is for you!

October Pumpkin Body Mask

2 cups canned pumpkin

4 tablespoons Greek yogurt

4 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Mix together the ingredients and apply to face for 10 minutes. Once set, remove with a warm face cloth and let your skin shine on.

Style Envy: Gwen Stefani’s Fall Look

 

She may just be the most stylish mom ever to set foot on a playground, and we’re pretty sure she rocks at bedtime lullabies — Gwen Stefani is our style star pick of the week.  When she’s not running around with her kids or toping the music charts, she’s got her trendy sleeves rolled up while she designs clothes, handbags and shoes for her label L.A.M.B. Her style is strategically fierce, and despite being a California native, she’s got fall fashion down to a science. She can rock a plaid skirt, a leather jacket, high boots and red lipstick making her one hot mama.

Tip of the fedora to you Gwen!
Love Gwen’s classic makeup? Try our multiplEYE™ lash enhancing liquid eyeliner and LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in fiery for Gwen’s retro beauty look.

 

 

2 Broke Girls and a Lot of envy

Smart and snarky, we’ve loved Kat Dennings since the moment she stole the spotlight from Samantha on Sex and the City; then she convinced us that Michael Cera was swoon-worthy in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, and we were psyched when we found out she’d scored her own show: 2 Broke Girls.  So just imagine how exited we were to learn that she loves us back.

We recently heard from 2 Broke Girls makeup artist Patty Bunch that Kat is a huge fan of tarte and uses our LipSurgence™ matte lip tint on and off set.

“I’ve received so many calls and e-mails on what lipstick I’m using on Kat Dennings on “2 Broke Girls,” Patty told us in an email. The answer: our matte lip tint in envy!

So, if you’ve ever wondered what our matte shades look like on, just tune into Kat’s hysterical sitcom every Monday night at 8:30pm EST on CBS to see them in action. And pick up some envy today!

 

 

 

Get Kristin Bauer’s Look

As vampy vixen Pam on the show, Kristin Bauer looked every bit her character when she stepped in to Sephora 5 Times Square for our Fashion’s Night Out event last Thursday. It was a look to die for, with sparkling crimson lips, a just-bitten flush, and smoldering vixen eyes thanks to the tarte™ for True Blood™ collection.

Once we saw Kristin, we knew we would be recreating the look on ourselves at home, so we asked tarte makeup artist Tony Ballard to share  how he achieved Kristin’s vampy glam:

Overall Inspiration: “I was inspired by Kristin’s True Blood® character Pam – I wanted her to be sassy, but still classic with a strong red lip.”

complexion & cheeks

-Tony smoothed Kristin’s complexion with tarte’s smooth operator™ tinted moisturizer in agent 12.

-Then he dabbed the tarte™ for True Blood™cheek stain on the apples of her cheeks and topped it off with tarte’s Amazonian clay shimmering powder in rose for instant radiance and subtle sheen.

-He set her complexion with tarte’s smooth operator™ Amazonian clay finishing powder.

eyes

-From the tarte™ for True Blood™ palette, he applied a soft wash of “the light,” a shimmering warm ivory over the entire lid, and then highlighted Kristin’s crease with “dusk,” a matte warm taupe.

-For extra drama to celebrate the evening, he used tarte’s multiplEYE™ lash enhancing liquid liner in black along her upper lash line.

-He then coated her top and bottom lashes with tarte’s gifted Amazonian clay smart mascara.

lips

-To complete Kristin’s look, Tony used tarte’s LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in fiery, a matte red, on her sexy pout.

tarte Rocks Fashion’s Night Out

Another New York Fashion Week, another Fashion’s Night Out — and it was a huge success! We were so excited to meet all the tartelettes who made it out, as well as those who tweeted along with us through the night.

The tarte™  team set up shop at Sephora 5 Times Square to celebrate FNO and our tarte™ for True Blood ™ collection,  where the stunning and eco-friendly celebrity Kristin Bauer, aka Pam from True Blood®, made an appearance. She looked absolutely gorgeous thanks to the help of our very own tarte makeup artist Tony Ballard. (p.s. Our next blog post will feature Kristin’s complete look with details on how you can recreate it). Kristin was wearing tarte’s LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in fiery, which gave her a perfectly sultry pout. Despite her day job playing the severe vamp Pam, Kristin was incredibly friendly and easy going. She stayed for over two hours to greet fans and pose for photos — the line to meet her stretched all the way around the store!

While Kristin was True Blooding it up with fans, our super talented team of tarte makeup artists were hard at work, giving mini makeovers to lucky FNOers (yeah, that line was pretty long too). By the end of the night Sephora was packed with perfectly done, sparkling red pouts.

And that’s not all, downtown, QVC hosted a star-studded event with a to-die-for beauty bar. While celebs like Heidi Klum, Isaac Mizrahi and Sarah Jessica Parker mingled, tarte’s very own Jen and Leigh were teaching party-goers how to create the perfect lip with LipSurgence™ lip tints.

And for those who couldn’t make it to any of the events in person, we also hosted our first FNO twitter raffle. We’re so pleased to announce @jules79200 as the winner of an exclusive tarte™ for True Blood ™ prize package!

It was a great evening, and we can’t wait to do it again. If you have stories or pictures from any of the events we’d love for you to share them with us on Facebook and Twitter!

tarte’s style star of the week: Blake Lively

Sure, she’s probably got a closet full of couture clothes but  it doesn’t take much for Blake to look red carpet ready when it comes to her beauty routine. She keeps it pretty simple with minimal makeup and frames her face with “just stepped off the beach” naturally wavy hair. To obtain a simple beachy look like Blake’s try Bumble and bumble’s surf spray for that sexy windswept style. Blake maintains just the right amount of bronze all year round with an allover dusting of golden light bronzer. To achieve a  sunless and seamless bronzy glow like hers try tarte’s hotel heiress bronzer.  Finish the look with a pop of pink to your lips using tarte’s LipSurgence™ natural matte lip tint in the shade hope.

How does your style compare to Blake Lively’s?
