icon envy: grace kelly or elizabeth taylor

Achieving the status of timeless beauty icon is no easy feat, nor is it based on looks alone. Sure these women scored in the genetic lottery — Grace’s bone structure seems to defy the laws of nature, and Liz’s double rows of eyelashes were a (lucky) genetic mutation — but pretty faces aside, the two stunners were able to maintained the public’s attention with poise, mystery, elegance and flair — while carving out their own distinct personalities.

Walk the Line

Much like my racy mascara days, I have flirted, dated and nearly settled down with a whole slew of eyeliners. I thought I liked—even loved—these liners.

Oh, but how wrong I was.

Enter the smooth-talking—well, more like smooth-gliding—emphasEYES. You don’t know swept off your feet until you’ve swiped on this eye-opening (hehe) wonder! With its tiny little tip, emphasEYES offers goof-proof application, which is essential for every tartelettes’ inner Steve Urkel. So it’s more “Hello, sexy!” and less “Did I do that?”

I love that the liner gives eyes a saturated, never heavy line that lasts all day long. And its small size allows for easy lining of the inner eye, which is critical to creating the perfect smoky eye. The lovely ladies at tarte offer emphasEYES in five different hues ranging from basic black to gorgeous green. So whether you get every hue or stick with the classics, you won’t be disappointed with this Cosmetics Casanova.

XO,

spring jacket

I’m loving the recent change in weather but I’m not prepared for spring at all! My biggest problem right now is finding a spring jacket. I love the look of a classic trench but I want something a little more exciting – maybe in a vibrant color like red or green. Well I haven’t found the perfect one yet so for now the hunt continues! -Maria
