WIN IT—Keri Russell’s Natural Beauty Look!


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.

To help get you started with a radiant glow tarte and Envision beauty are giving away The Solution superior facial moisturizer($79) and tipsy natural cheek stain ($30) to 1 lucky winner! From now until April 6th post a comment below telling us why ‘green beauty’ matters to you!

Spring 2010 Trend Alert!

We haven’t even made it to Ground Hog Day, but I certainly see spring on the horizon. Trends are emerging and some key themes are giving me a heavy dose of optimism! Although I was all for heavy studs last fall; this spring I’ll channel my inner flower child in a whole new way. I do love the laid back boho look, but lately I’m more intrigued by ultra-girly flowers in an array of different looks! Bursts, liberty prints, artsy watercolors—you name it and I’ll try it. Above are totally different designs that are blooming for spring & each is just as feminine as the next (from left-to-right: tarte collaborated with Celebrity Makeup Artist Tina Turnbow for our newest natural cheek stain—flower child, Rebecca Taylor skirt, Nanette Lepore honeysuckle dress & Lauren Moffat top and shorts). As you can imagine, we tarte girls love anything nature inspired, but what we really adore about this look is that there’s really something for everyone!


Tina Turnbow: Celebrity makeup artist & green beauty expert

We’re so thrilled about our new eco-friendly spring 2010 collaboration with celebrity makeup artist and green beauty expert Tina Turnbow. Together Maureen and Tina developed tarte’s flower child collection—an eyeshadow palette and cheek stain inspired by nature and all earthly elements.

With over 11 years of experience, Tina has created beautiful looks for celebrities such as Joan Allen, Claire Danes, Vera Farmiga, Ellen Page, Mary-Louise Parker, Amanda Peet, Jessica Szohr, Keri Russell and Ivanka Trump to name a few. Tina’s been featured in national media like Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, Marie Claire, Shape, Nylon and has collaborated with a wide range of fashion photographers including Gilles Bensimon, Arthur Elgort and Raymond Meier. She’s also a usual suspect working at premiers and award shows like the Golden Globes (check out the look she did for Vera) and Emmy’s, as well as serving as the lead artist during Fashion Week.

Whether she’s power walking with her dogs, cooking a healthy meal or scouring Manhattan for the latest eco-friendly beauty product, Tina is always encouraging women “to be aware of what they put on their faces: your skin is your biggest organ!” And we couldn’t agree more!!
