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?




A College Girl’s Beauty Bag

Hey all!

My name is Kate. I’m a rising junior at Boston College and I also happen to be the new tarte PR intern, doing my best to dive into this glamorous world. I am soooo excited to be working at such a great, green company, not to mention giddy over the access to all the fab makeup!

Recently, I have tried out some of tarte’s newer products, and I must say, as a “college girl,” many of these products are totally ideal.  For instance, as I think many college students can relate, the party scene at school can get overcrowded, hot, and sweaty.  This is why I am in love with tarte’s new summer collection of waterproof products, perfect for girls like us!  So I have decided to put together a list of beauty products, hair and nails included, that are particularly alluring to a beauty addict in the midst of her education.

First off are my fave waterproof products. lights, camera, splashes! and matte waterproof park ave princess. I for one love to look bronze, but don’t want brown streaks of sweat rolling down my face whether I’m stressing in the library, lounging on the campus green or at a party. PAP is the perfect, sweat resilient bronzer. Next in the bag I would include tarte’s cheek stain, in tipsy, and LipSurgence™ natural  lip stain (in charmed).  Again, great long staying products, as well as easy and quick to use– I’m a girl on the go!

Now we can’t forget about the hair.  I have long fine wavy hair, that I like best when straight, however it’s hard to keep it that way when engulfed in humidity.  To keep my hair in place, I have come to turn to L’Oreal Elnett Extra Strong hold hair spray. It gets the job done, but doesn’t make my hair hard or crunchy.  I’m also a fan of chi volume boost.  I loooove volume and this really boosts my roots! Now for the nails.  As I’m sure many of you have heard, OPI has a new gel polish that I guarantee will last over a month without a chip.  I know I don’t have the time or money during school to get a manicure every week (because that’s how long a manicure lasts), so this gel formula is the perfect solution!

Well that’s it for the “college girl’s” beauty bag must haves. Please share any additions and I’ll be back with another post next week!



Get Shorty!

Now, I’m no statistician, but I estimate that my legs comprise about 98.9752438% of my body. Before you start the eye-rolling and the “Boo-hoo, skinny girl!” scoffing, hear me out. Long-legged life really isn’t that great. Pants shopping often turns into a tribute show to my bony ankles. Certain shoes are designated to dress-duty exclusively. And I’ve recently discovered that on me, the maxidress is the new awkward prairie-length as even the longest frock creeps up over my feet. (SIGH!)
So, what is a lengthy-limbed gal to do? Get Shorty, of course! And with this season’s plethora of printed shorts, I am lamenting my long legs no more! From Tar-jay boutique (Target for you non “French” speakers) to, the options for chic short-shorts are endless.

Here are some of my top picks:

LaRok’s Diwali Shorts: I don’t know if it’s the intricate embroidery or the itsy-bitsy inseam, but I am completely OBSESSED with these shorts. They are Morocco in fabric form, ready to transport the wearer to a locale far more exotic than the USofA. Put ‘em with a plain white tank and frills-free flip-flops because these are some show-stopping shorts!

Walter’s Multi-Print Silk Short: With its intricate watercolor design, these beautiful bloomers are anything but casual. They are equally suited for a lunch with gal pals or a dinner date with Mr. Hottie. I daydream about them paired with a button down in basic black or a top with a pop of color.

sass&bide’s “A Girl Like Me” Shorts: As the name suggests, it takes a certain kind of gal to rock this sequined style. Therefore, the shy need not apply. With a hodgepodge color palette of white and metallics, these shorts can be matched with nearly anything for a funky downtown style. These “sass”-y shorts are the perfect uniform for a night of shakin’ that groove thang.

See by Chloe Jersey Striped Shorts: Anyone else totally over loungewear that screams “I’m a frickin’ awesome middle schooler! Like what’s up?” Ya know what I’m talking about- cheeky messages across the Rear End, glitter up one side and enough prints for a 3-ring circus act. Well, this See by Chloe pair is sophisticated sportswear. The white and navy stripes are subtly nautical, but very obviously summery. And the loose silhouette creates the allusion of a flouncy skirt so the look is polished and chic. Orange accents provide a fresher pop of color than the traditional red.

What better way to accessorize these short styles than with tarte’s leg bronzer Glam Gams? It provides a pinch of shimmer, a delectable scent, but most importantly the perfect amount of faux-sun. So grab your shorts, “Glam” your gams and say “Hello, sunshine!”
