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?
Ok, ladies: let’s do this together. Slide off the Uggs. Roll down the socks. Now breathe. A quick pedicure and no one will ever see those chips and flakes from last winter’s hottest shade! Eco-friendly brands such as Zoya, Butter London and my favorite vegan brand, Ginger + Liz have come to our rescue with fresh, new shades that allow us to step into summer looking bold and beautiful. Go wild with a hot new neon shade or beach it up with a gorgeous earth tone. The world is at your fingertips…or your toes.
What summer polish shade is your favorite?! Pics and comments please. J

During Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, tarte’s celebrity makeup artist Tony Ballard created beautiful looks for the CW’s Plain Jane, Louise Roe and AMC’s Mad Men, Nora Zehtner. Both were spotted at Andy & Debb’s Spring 2011 Presentation last week rocking some tarte products! Look like a fashionista–here’s what Tony used:
Louise Roe at Andy & Debb Spring 2011 Presentation
- Added a pop of color to her cheeks with tarte’s eco-cheek natural cheek stain
- Created a clean, simple eye with shades from tarte’s femme naturale palette
- Really played up the lashes with several coats of tarte’s lights, camera, lashes! 4-in-1 natural mascara
Nora Zehtner at Andy & Debb Spring 2011 Presentation
- Created a flawless complexion with tarte’s ReCreate anti-aging foundation
- Highlighted skin with tarte’s smooth operator illuminating serum
- Added a touch of pink glow with tarte’s TEN limited-edition natural cheek stain
- Created a classic, doe eye with tarte’s femme naturale palette, emphasEYES™ aqua-gel in black and several coats of tarte’s lights, camera, lashes! 4-in-1 natural mascara
- For her pout, used tarte’s LipSurgence™ matte lip stain in lucky mixed with tarte’s LipSurgence™ lip stain in lust.
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!
Before I even started flipping through the pages of July’s Essence magazine, I was mesmerized by the issue’s cover girl: the beautiful Jada Pinkett Smith. Jada’s makeup looks absolutely flawless and it’s a great day & night look. Her immaculate complexion & lightly glossed lips really make her indigo cat-eyes pop right off the page. I’ll admit blue liner is not something I would typically reach for, but this oceanic hue is a hot summer trend that brightens the white’s of your eyes on a whole new level! It’s actually super simple to replicate with a cream liner. My fave is tarte’s emphasEYES™ clay shadow/liner in indigo (Essence gave its nod of approval as well, because it’s featured in plum on page 30 of this issue!); it even comes with the appropriate brush for the perfect application!
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.
