Is 2012 really only a few days away?
It seems like this new year really snuck up on us, so we decided to take a few minutes and make some resolutions.
From eating right, to putting a moratorium on Diet Coke, each one of us has a goal for the next year — maybe seeing them in print will help us achieve them!
“I resolve to live every minute like it’s my last and STOP sweating the small stuff!”
-Maureen Kelly, tarte Founder and CEO
“My resolution is to seriously dial down my daily coffee intake. I could never forego my morning cup, but whenever I feel like I need an energy boost, I’m going to take a brisk walk around the block!”
“I’m hoping to travel more in the New Year! There are just so many places to see!”
-Candace, Director of Communications & Market Strategy
“As recently advised by a friendly source, my New Year’s resolution is to take a breather and be more patient.”
-Heather, Executive Director, Product Development
“I resolve to exercise more. There’s nothing like the energy from a morning workout…so I’ll be setting my alarm clock and hitting the gym!”
-Staci, Integrated Marketing & E-Commerce Specialist
“Next year I’m going to revamp my diet…less Skittles, more veggies.”
-Jess, Public Relations & Artistry Relations Manager
“I resolve to pay more attention to my budget this year, like painting my nails instead of getting manis!”
-Kate, Public Relations Coordinator
“As a coffee junkie, I resolve to make it myself rather than having a barista do it for me!”
-Amanda, Project Manager
“My resolution this year is to drink more water and get back in shape. I’m determined to be able to do a 5K in under 25 minutes again!”
-Bianca, Graphic Designer
“To stop worrying about the small stuff — and to recognize what is small!”
-Celeste, Retail Operations Associate
“My resolution is to finish decorating my apartment. I moved in August — there’s no excuse for going seven months without a couch!”
-Rachel, Operations Coordinator
“To drink more water…instead of Diet Coke.”
-Kim, Accounting Analyst
“My New Year’s resolution is to actually use the kickboxing gym membership I bought months ago.”
-Melanie, Product Development Coordinator
“I resolve to cook at least one meal each week. I have a kitchen in my apartment — it’s about time I used it!”
-Koryn, Community Manager
“Travel more! Get out – see the world.”
-Jen, Customer Service Representative & Contributing tarte talk Editor
“My resolution is to make sure I’m hitting the gym at least twice a week. Getting my cardio in is such a great stress reliever and helps to keep me on point for the rest of the week.”
-Leigh, QVC Marketing Coordinator
What’s are your New Years resolutions, tartelettes?
Happy 2010 & we’re glad to be back!! This year our resolutions are to live our healthiest year yet and put our best faces forward. We have survived the holidays, pledged to hit the gym and will do our best to nix some of our bad habits. At tarte we believe that the best way to show our efforts is through a glowing, healthy complexion. With temps still dipping and two winter months ahead of us, we definitely need a strategy for this luminous skin we crave.
The basics are a given: cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize & probably moisturize again because these months leave our precious faces extremely dry and dehydrated, but then what?! Well, here’s where your natural beauty complexion products are ESSENTIAL. I’m not talking your favorite shadow, liner & mascara, but the core items that perfect the natural YOU;)
Start anew with clean slate natural primer; this helps makeup stay in place longer while preventing creasing in fine lines and wrinkles. This alone will make your skin feel incredibly supple. Next, cover any blemishes or red spots with tarte’s foolproof eraser pen—swipe, dab, dot whatever works for you. The ingredients are correcting the spot rather than sitting on top of it. Foundation really is a personal preference (but choose one with SPF, even in the winter)—if you prefer full coverage choose ReCreate™ & if you opt for a tinted moisturizer reach for smooth operator with SPF 20. Either way, I promise 1 of the 2 will be your new best friend! Finish up with provocateur natural mineral pressed powder SPF 8 & a hint of park ave bronzer. A tip that Maureen passed along to me: avoid brushing bronzer over your entire face; instead try drawing the number 3. Start at the forehead, swish around your temple to the cheekbone and then back around and under the jaw bone. This will give you radiance without too much shimmer. Just a coat of mascara and your favorite matte lip sheer & you’re out the door. You can feel even better knowing that if you slip-up with all of the other goals you have set; these antioxidant & nutrient rich products will be doing the work on your complexion from the inside-out!
