Get the Look:

The beautiful Kate Bosworth arrived at the premiere of L!fe Happens not only wearing a gorgeous pink number, but also decked out in tarte. Celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine wanted to give her a look that would compliment her hot pink Richard Nicoll dress. She “opted for a simple and soft look to highlight Kate’s natural beauty.”  She incorporated delicate pops of pink on her cheeks and lips. Following Amy’s easy steps, there’s no reason why you can’t replicate Kate’s look at home!

Style Star of Week: Rachel Bilson

Each week we’ll be featuring our favorite style icons that portray fresh, eco-chic looks that work morning, noon and night. To kick it off this week we’re featuring America’s sweetheart Rachel Bilson.  Whether she’s grabbing a coffee, running errands, walking her dog, or hitting up the Red Carpet, Rachel’s always looking amazing! The bronzed beauty doesn’t stop! Our eco-fashionista has sported many different looks and we’ve selected some of our favorites to share with you.

                         

From pants and maxis to shorts, she always chooses styles that flatter her petite shape…

A regular on the Red Carpet, she can don a sultry look in black or a more bohemian take in a cream shade.  She’s constantly changing it up with pops of fresh color that impel her to stand out.

To replicate Rachel’s eco-friendly style try incorporating these accessories into your wardrobe: a weaved-tote, a black-quilted bag or a fantastic pair of neutral pumps. These key pieces work with so many different looks giving you a more versatile take on your closet. Other items you’ll find Rachel wearing are trendy sunglasses, a bold cuff or a black blazer—these can be worn with almost anything in your closet. Go nuts, have fun, and outshine this summer with a fresh new style!

We want to know:  what staple item will you be purchasing this season?

Trend Alert!

New York city shoppers are actually itching NOT to shop! Yes it’s true. This little bed bug epidemic happening at some of my favorite retailers is actually keeping my wallet padded in what would typically be my favorite season to splurge. Thanks to cyber space, I can still turn to my favorite sites and celebs for a little inspiration on what’s new & noteworthy this fall.

When I think of tribal, I typically think of summer ikat prints,  fab shoes & satchels. Well, that has changed this season. Knowing that one of my favorite effortless fashionistas, Blake Lively, recently stocked up on natural cheek stain in sunkissed; I took some time to check up on her September wardrobe choices as she promotes her new flick, The Town.  My fave…this fully beaded Marchesa tribal mini dress. The vibrant yellow and sapphire are nothing short of amazing and when it comes to fashion, Blake is spot-on. Tribal for cocktail hour? If it looks anything like this then yes, please!

Blake’s not the only trendsetter. My favorite downtown retailer, LF, just released their fall look book and it seems they too are feeling the tribal vibe for fall. The relaxed, hooded cardigan from their shoot is on the right. I’m loving the muted rustic colors for fall & their twist on a Navajo blanket. NY is a bit cold for shorts; so I would pair this with my favorite skinnies, a House of Harlow 1960 tribal cuff & Blake’s beauty secrets ;)

5 Steps to Heidi

 

Let’s just tell it like it is, Heidi Klum is one hot mama. At last night’s 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy’s, this mom of four proved to us that she’s still got it (and I don’t think it’s going away anytime soon). Contrary to other goers’ gowns, her Marchesa mini and Lorraine Schwartz necklace were ultra glam and equally eye popping. Most of all, I loved how her upswept hair was the perfect complement to her radiant complexion and beautiful eye makeup. It’s the perfect evening look that I plan to recreate for a wedding I have in November. So, I figured why not share how easy it is to achieve.

First things first, her luminous skin creates the perfect back drop to her kohl-rimmed eyes. Tarte’s limited-edition radiant & rested collection includes all of the necessary fresh-faced goodies for just this: ReCreate™ primer, park ave princess mineral bronzer, limited-edition cheek stain in glisten, emphasEYES™ inner rim brightener and smooth operator™ illuminating serum. When combined, these products create a radiant look. Her natural, glowing complexion is topped off with a simple lip choice. I suggest you pucker-up with our 24.7 natural lip sheer in Sunday for Heidi’s soft pout.

Now, let’s move on to those gorgeous eyes—the focus of this look. The colors are basic, but the application is precise for an eye-opening effect. The last thing you want to create are heavily lined beady eyes. Start by applying  a shimmering bone shadow (lock & roll 12-hour eyeshadow in sandstone). Make sure to get the inner corners of the eyes for an instantly brightening effect. Using our brand new emphasEYES™ aqua-gel eyeliner in black, line the upper lashline and ONLY the outer half of the lower lashline. Line your  inner rims with the inner rim brightener from the radiant and rested kit. This will help open your eyes by making the whites appear brighter. Finish off with 2 coats of multiplEYE™ natural lash enhancing mascara for Heidi’s camera-worthy lashes. That’s it!  This really is super easy and like I mentioned before, wear this look with your hair off your face. After all, you want to show how pretty you are!

WIN IT—Keri Russell’s Natural Beauty Look!

 

At the NYC premiere of Keri Russell’s new flick “Leaves of Grass”, Tina Turnbow (makeup artist to the stars) gave her a natural beauty look.  What’s even better is that all the products Tina selected give back to the environment. I love that Tina chose natural products from Envision Beauty and tarte; both companies use nature and science to achieve flawless results & each remain socially conscious by contributing proceeds to eco-friendly charities. That being said I thought it was only fair that we treat you to a “spring glow” giveaway. With these products and the guideline below, you’ll be able to recreate this youthful look at home!

Tina prepped Keri’s skin with The Solution by Envision Beauty. Why we love it? Like tarte goodies, The Solution is packed with antioxidants like goji and acai berries, as well as vitamins A, C, E and B5, leaving skin hydrated and smooth. This paraben-free facial moisturizer evened Keri’s skin tone for the perfect makeup application.

For a healthy complexion, Tina turned to tarte’s fuss-free products, “I used a tinted moisturizer and created a peachy-pink cheek.” Tarte’s natural cheek stain in tipsy touts our t5 super fruit complex™ — a proprietary blend of the five most active superfruits: goji, acai, maracuja, acerola and pomegranate! She used her own Tina Turnbow for tarte limited-edition flower child palette for a soft, smoky charcoal eye. Her final touches included voluminous lashes & a nude lip with a hint of sheen. For more application details head over to MyLifetime.com

To help get you started with a radiant glow tarte and Envision beauty are giving away The Solution superior facial moisturizer($79) and tipsy natural cheek stain ($30) to 1 lucky winner! From now until April 6th post a comment below telling us why ‘green beauty’ matters to you! Your comment will automatically enter you into the random drawing contest–we can’t wait to hear from you!
