The holidays are here…and you’re still gift shopping?

who: Jenna Daunais, tarte creative marketing manager

claim to fame: In 6th grade she got a paper route so she could buy fashion magazines because her mom said she had to be seventeen to read Seventeen. Today Jenna has STACKS of all the beauty & fashion magazines you could dream of on her desk & her favorite thing in the world is to come into the office in the morning (hot chai in hand) and see what’s new in the world of color & design. Her current obsession: tarte talk on pinterest.

her gift list:

1. cheek stain in blushing bride: “For my mom. This is her favorite cheek stain. It’s a gorgeous deep dusty, plumy rose and it looks amazing on her.”

 2. Anslem Reyle “UNTITLED” paint and monochromatic foil installation:  “This is what I am wishing for. Key word ‘wishing’. I love art and this is the dream piece.”

3. butter LONDON nail polish in yummy mummy: “My sister has two (adorable) little ones that keep her super busy so weekly mani pedis are just not possible. This is the prefect nude — plus, butter LONDON products are formulated without formaldehyde, toluene, DBP or parabens, which she & both appreciate.”

4. WEN by Chaz Dean winter vanilla mint cleansing conditioner:  “I gave my little brother a sample of WEN that I got from a QVC event and now he’s hooked — it’s always in his gym bag. This seasonal edition smells like candy canes!”

5. Whiskey Stones:  “The perfect host gift. Whiskey stones are odorless and tasteless cubes of solid soapstone that will chill your liquor without diluting it. unlike ice. Add them to your favorite libation and get the party started!”

6. Phillip Keel’s simple diary: “Simple diaries are not your average diaries. Everyday you’re prompted to answer a thought provoking inspired question. I love to do my daily entry with my morning latte to get a creative kick start to the day.”

7. puppy houndstooth bow tie collar:  “My dog Fast Eddie is one of tarte’s resident office pups. Since he works with me in the creative department, he definitely needs to dress the part. I am getting him this green houndstooth bow tie to wear to the office in the new year.”

Check out the tarte office pups on our Pinterest page. They are SO cute!

8. One of a kind pastel and neon vintage rhinestone necklace:  “This is for my best friend, Al — we’re both obsessed with ANYTHING neon. She’ll love this necklace and I love that it’s one of a kind.”

Get bronzed with tarte!


With tarte’s natural line of bronzing products there is no excuse to step out with a see through complexion during the summertime. Remember, there is no such thing as a healthy suntan so if you’re looking for products that give instant faux glow results while leaving your skin looking and feeling gorgeous, you’ve come to the right place. As a self proclaimed reformed sun worshiper, I’m conscious of skin-cancer risks but I still love the way my skin looks tan so whenever there is a new bronzing product being passed around the office- I’m always the first to try. Here is my expert advice on how to get an allover gorgeous glow without the harmful rays. My favorite everyday summer product is tarte’s smooth operator™ Amazonian clay finishing powder in bronze. This lightweight product mattifies my skin (since it tends to get oily after hours in sun) and gives me a gorgeous natural bronzed glow with every application. Love that! I also rely on tarte’s glam gams to transform my pale stems to bronzed and beautiful; giving me the confidence I need to step out on a hot summer night.

 

What tarte product do you rely on for a natural summer glow?

The beautiful Kate Bosworth arrived at the premiere of L!fe Happens not only wearing a gorgeous pink number, but also decked out in tarte. Celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine wanted to give her a look that would compliment her hot pink Richard Nicoll dress. She “opted for a simple and soft look to highlight Kate’s natural beauty.”  She incorporated delicate pops of pink on her cheeks and lips. Following Amy’s easy steps, there’s no reason why you can’t replicate Kate’s look at home!
