At tarte we’re always trying to reduce our carbon footprint. In celebration of Earth Month, we wanted to tell you about some of our favorite brands that are also consciously helping to save our beautiful planet! Green, natural, sustainable & even vegan choices are easier and easier to come by these days & I’m not talking about itchy hemp & recycled plastic cola bottles (though some innovatively use that in their packaging). I chose glam gems, silk rompers and luxe beauty items that all have an environmental mission. This April (and the other 11 months of the year) we encourage you to be eco-chic by making eco-conscious choices.

Davines: quality hair care products created from high-grade natural ingredients, using only renewable energy

The tarte team kicked-off Earth Month by celebrating our collaboration with Celebrity Makeup Artist and Green Beauty Expert, Tina Turnbow. The ‘Go Gorgeously Green’ event was held all day on Friday at Sephora 42nd & Madison, NYC. Using her tarte flower child collection, Tina gave gorgeous spring makeovers and provided customers with her expert tips and tricks from bridal beauty to an eco-friendly alternative for a smokey eye. Everyone had a great time & here are the pics to prove it. Follow tarte on Twitter and Facebook for regular event updates—we hope to see you at the next one!
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.
