Krysten Ritter’s b——‘ style

If you haven’t been watching Don’t trust the B—- in Apt 23, you’re missing out. It’s a snarky, funny take on growing up, friendship, and the realities of making it in New York, all led by the delight that is Krysten Ritter. Yes, the gorgeous actress plays a true eye-rolling, conniving, back-stabbing, b-word, and she looks like she’s loving every minute of it. (We are, too.)

Throw in the fact that Ritter’s indie film, Life Happens — which she wrote and stars in — opens nation wide today, and you could call this girl a full-fledged entertainment phenom! You may recall we hosted a little shindig in honor of her flick earlier this week – all lip makeup featured in the movie is exclusively tarte!

Not only is Ritter quirky and hilarious, but she’s also got fabulous style, a cool mix of girly and badass — plus she’s a longtime tartelette. We’ve recapped some of our favorite looks below.

A more demure choice – accessorized, of course, by a pop of red on her lips and shoes.

Ritter proves that she can look just as gorgeous in muted colors, here in an ethereal floral gown at the 2010 Hollywood Style Awards.

She’s even cool in real life. On her way to an appearance, Ritter rocks a red peplum dress, jacket, and covetable rocker boots.

Happy Spring! We love the all-out brights, from head to toe — and we want those shoes!

L!fe Happens!

Last night we had the pleasure of hosting a screening of L!fe Happens, a hilarious new comedy written and starring one of our favorite Hollywood up-and-comers, Krysten Ritter. The film is the product of a collaboration between Ritter and one of her best friends Kat Coiro, and was cast and staffed with some of Ritter’s most-talented nearest and dearest, including celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine.

Nadine, a long time tarte fan — so is Ritter! — used our LipSurgence™ lip tints in every scene!

To celebrate the film’s premiere, we invited a group of beauty bloggers to join us for the screening, which included a Q&A with Ritter and Nadine!

 L!fe Happens beauty roll call: in the film Ritter wore our lip tint in spirited, while Kate Bosworth wore our matte lip tint in hope and Rachel Bilson wore our matte lip tint in lucky.

“Debra said she wanted knock-em-dead eyes. She wanted a super smoky dramatic look, so we made it all about glamorous eyes, and accentuated them with a shiny, natural nude gloss on the lips.” – Jeannia Robinette, celebrity makeup artist

Summer Cuts!

We tend to turn to Hollywood for fashion advice and the latest trends. So, why not trust them to try haircuts and styles they’ve previously rocked?  From Blake to Emma and all those lovely styles in between, there’s no reason to take on the rest of the summer with the same ole hair style you dawned last season. Get wild and edgy with a pixie cut like Miss Watson or try a short bob with a beachy-wave like Kiera Knightly. For those of you tartelettes who can’t part with your long locks, try an easy style like Vanessa Hudgens; simple, long and straight. You can also go “au natural” like Blake Lively and flaunt your endless, wavy mane.  Whatever style you choose— wear it with confidence and you’ll be sure to turn heads.

What hair style are you embracing or thinking of trying this August?

Oscar Beauty

Hi all!

I’m Kate—the newest member of the tarte team. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to blog about beauty, fashion and all things glamorous. For my official post, I’ve decided to share my thoughts on some of my favorite Oscar beauty trends. I know I’m a little late to the convo, but I’ve finally had the chance to digest all of the gorgeous gals!

I thought that stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Hillary Swank both dazzled with a natural , look.  By using a nude lip color and sporting a rosy cheek, they flawlessly pulled it off with ease.  Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry and Michelle Williams all looked stunning rocking a sultry, smokey eye. They balanced it perfectly by complimenting the strong eye with softer shades on their cheeks and lips. And one of my all-time  favorite trends of the evening was the classic look. I think Anne Hathaway and Sandra Bullock pulled this off well with a bold red lip color.

What were some of your favorite beauty trends?

One-of-a-kind Beauty!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!! On this “green” holiday, we wanted to celebrate some rare beauties: Redheads! Did you know that only 4% of the population consists of true redheads? Whether strawberry or deep auburn, you’re quite a unique bunch. Red hair genes are often associated with creamy skin and freckles. We realize just because your locks are red that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re Irish, but for those that are—today, let’s embrace it!  Hair color, like eye color, has an impact on what makeup shades work best for you. This morning I consulted with tarte’s CEO Maureen Kelly (a true, fiery-redheaded beauty) & our tarte beauty gurus for some tips.

  • Complexion- If you have freckles, don’t try to cover them! Use a foundation to even out your skin tone, not cover up. Trying to mask freckles can often make your skin look dingy. Use a tinted moisturizer like smooth operator for an optimal base and follow up by lightly dusting with park ave princess mineral bronzer to warm up your look.
  • Cheeks- Avoid pink bases. Redheads look the best in peaches and corals. Some natural cheek stain suggestions: blissful, eco cheek, green siren or Maureen’s favorite, tipsy.
  • Eyes- Keep your ‘Irish eyes smiling’ with warm colors in coppers, browns, honeys and bronzes. Grays and blues are not for you. If you want a pop of color khaki’s and plums are the perfect shade for lining.
  • Lips- Reach for lippies in coral or blush shades with gold undertones.  Our faves for your pout are LipSurgence ™ natural lip stains in joy and enchanted and/or vitamin infused glosses in liquid sunshine & 40 winks—totally kissable!

 

We hope these tips and selections are perfect for you. As you can see in our montage above they work wonders on both Maureen & Hollywood’s Redheads!

Kristin

Top That!

Some of Hollywood’s prettiest stars are facing the latest fedora trend head-on, literally. They just tuck back their lush locks and pull the brim over their sparkling eyes and zip in and out of Starbucks, LAX, Katsuya with such pizazz. What stars, you ask? Zac Efron, Brad Pitt, Justin Timberlake and Jaime Foxx to name a few. Well, I think we should make like these pretty boys and get on top of that trend.

Fedoras are a great summer style that is not nearly as daunting as swimwear but just as warm-weather welcoming. From Bebe to Hat Attack, Shopbop to Forever21, this adorable topping is available at every price point. Shopstyle.com is a great source for finding the perfect shade, shape and chic look for you.

During a recent Miami trip, I paired my classic straw version with a white tee and cut-offs for a look that was Collins Ave Cool. The paps just couldn’t get enough. Ok, so maybe there weren’t any paparazzi, but I radiated casual chicness nonetheless.

With all of the talk of global warming and deadly rays, you have to give skin cancer the one-two punch. Keep piling on the SPF, but why not try a fedora for a second stylish form of sunscreen?
And lucky for you, tarte is celebrating Skin Cancer Awareness month by offering 20% off of some of their most sun savvy products with the code sun20. Lightweight and sheer, but packing the power of SPF 20, the Smooth Operator foundation is the perfect mate to this canvas style in sleek dove grey by Banana Republic.

So pick up a few of tarte’s “Save Your Skin” items and don’t forget to top it off with a funky fedora!
