winter travel by way of style & comfort

 

 

The holidays are over but winter has barely kicked in. If you’re braving the skies — or highways or train tracks — over the next couple months, make sure you pack for comfort. It’s no fun spending 6 hours crammed in the backseat of a two-door with nothing to do, and let’s face it, there are very few things worse than suffering through wet socks on a red-eye flight.

While comfort is important, you should never sacrifice style — so we’ve rounded up the perfect travel checklist for the cold weather jet setter.

Clockwise from the top left: Serious baggage: Flight 001 luggage tags, $18. Snuggle up: Minnie Rose cashmere shawl, $395. The best-seller: The Help, $11. Sweet escape: a new playlist and Zumreed striped blue headphones, $55. Small luxuries: Hunter ‘Fleece Welly’ socks, $30. Anywhere comfort: In-flight sleep masks and neck pillow, $22 and $18.  Quick refreshers: Ole Hendrickson Truth To Go wipes, $6. Pretty quencher:  LipSurgence lip tints, $24.  A hold-everything bag: Duex Lux Felix medium duffle, $102.

2. Eco-chic greeting cards and gift tags from Paper Playne: “Similar to downloading a song, you download a file and you can print out your own Holiday stationary so you can enjoy the designs over and over agan. Here’s a free download for the gift tags.”

3. Clarisonic: “I sweat my @#& off on stage. I use this after every performance to give my skin the ultimate cleaning. Maybe I will get one for Matt? Haha.”

Get the Look: Once Upon a Time

 

Like a lot of you, we’ve been swept away by ABC’s new fairytale drama Once Upon a Time. The show’s premise is that all of our favorite childhood storybook characters have been cursed, forced to live in modern times, had their memories wiped and are all inhabiting a small town in Maine. Not only is this a refreshing take on the Brothers Grimm, but the dual timeline gives the actors the opportunity to play two characters, showcasing various personalities, styles and beauty looks.

Take one of our favorite cast members, Ginnifer Goodwin. The actress, whose gamine face has pretty much ensured her the ingénue role for the rest of the decade, manages to pull off two flawless and fashionable looks simultaneously. As pre-cursed Snow White and modern schoolteacher Mary Margaret Blanchard, she frequently swaps out one color palette for another in a single episode,  sporting icy cool shades in one scene and a sweet, dewy look in the next.

Bravo Ginny! You nail them both.

Fancy yourself a modern Snow White, or do you think you rock the soft, sweet style of a small town beauty? To achieve either character’s pristine porcelain look follow the how-to below.

 

Snow White’s cool beauty:

Complexion: provocateur pressed mineral powder in fair

Cheeks: Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in dollface

Lips: LipSurgence™  lip tint in enchanted

Eyes: emphasEYES™ Amazonian clay waterproof liner in black

Lashes: lights, camera, lashes! mascara

Mary Margaret Blanchard’s lovely, warm glow:

Complexion: smooth sperator™ tinted moisturizer in agent 06

Cheeks: mineral powder bronzer in park ave princess

Lips: LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in exposed

Eyes: MultiplEYE™ lash enhancing liquid eyeliner and Femme Natural Palette shades: Golden tan (all over eyelid), Shimmering cocoa (outer corner)

Lashes: gifted Amazonian clay smart mascara

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!

 

 

 

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!

 

Xo,

The Olsen twins have done it again!

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have found yet another fashion venture to tackle. The designers of The Row and Elizabeth James label are now designing and merchandising chic t-shirts on stylemint.com for only $29.99. To enroll in this exclusive program you must sign up and answer a few quick questions to define your style. Once finished, you can choose from an assortment of t-shirts that cater to your preferred style. I love how the collections will change monthly and as that happens they’ll continue to sort out the styles specifically for you. Also, Mary-Kate and Ashley will offer monthly style advice to help dress up a basic tee for a night out or make it more casual for daytime, and nothing goes better with a T than tarte’s LipSurgence™ lip tints and lusters–buff for day and amused for night!

I personally love v-necks! What style t-shirt do you prefer?!

 

xo,

Jen
