coachella must-haves!

 

Hey tartelettes! I’m sure some of you are going to sunny Palm Springs, California this weekend for Coachella. We’ve heard from so many tartelettes on the east that are excited to escape the dreary weather we’re experiencing and head down to the sun! Likewise, we’ve heard from so many west coast tartelettes that are planning the ultimate road trip to experience what looks like one of the most epic lineups- EVER! Phoenix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Major Lazer, La Roux, and Nicky Romero are just some of the many artists set to perform during the outdoor festival. Here is our guide for our tartelettes heading to Coachella this weekend and next. More >

diy: skin firming (recycled) rose face mask

What’s not to love about a fresh bouquet of roses? Not only do roses smell and look wonderful, but their petals actually have substantial amounts of vitamin C, and skin-firming rose oil — it’s astringent properties aid in the tightening of skin and muscles. Plus, with V-Day right around the corner, you’ll have petals to spare. Once your bouquet starts to wilt, take those blooms and use them for your skin’s benefit — a rose petal facial will leave skin feeling firm, replenished and radiant.  The best part? It’s an easy DIY! Once again we enlisted Erica, our  DIY beauty extraordinaire, to share her  favorite rose petal facial recipe! More >

get carried away with your #bff

Hi tartelettes,

I’m tarte’s digital gal Jenna. You may recognize my handy work (pun intended) on our instagram account @tartecosmetics. J

Who is better than your #BFF? Nobody!

One thing I love most about my job is that I get to share the story of tarte beauty and the work I do with Maureen with tartelettes everywhere. Included in that following of tartelettes is my very own best friend, Alissa. In fact, she may just be one of the biggest tarte fans out there and she is also my #1 support— this is one of the greatest things about my best friend. Alissa is also an avid collector of all things tarte. (It helps that her #BFF is always willing to share). Today is her birthday; and so, I wanted to celebrate her in a BIG way. Her favorite product of all time is our “carried away” collector’s set which many of you know is SOLD OUT. While preparing for the Golden Globes coverage this morning, I stumbled upon one last remaining carried away set in the PR closet. To celebrate my #BFF, I will be hosting a contest to WIN the very last “carried away” set (that you cannot get anywhere else) for your best friend and something equally as sweet for you! All you have to do is tag her in the comment section under one of the #BFF pictures above. We’ll ship it to her, love you. But wait, there is something for you too if you and your #BFF win, we’ll send you 4 sets from our Baby, it’s bold outside limited-edition collection listed below:

working it: kate’s desk

 

Much like your makeup bag or your purse, what you keep on your desk says a lot of about who you are. We decided to put some members of the tarte team under the microscope by unexpectedly snapping a photo of their workspace and then asking them to pick out their must-haves.

This week’s subject is Kate, our incredible PR coordinator. When it comes to mixing and mingling, planning the perfect gift bag, or pulling off any type of event, she’s our go-to gal. Let’s find out what she needs within arm’s reach to get through the day.

1. pure maracuja oil: “I always keep a bottle on my desk!”

2. Deborah Lippman nail polish in the shade Fashion: “This is the perfect nude color for everyday wear. P.S. I’m addicted to nail polish.”

3. Bag Balm: “I don’t leave home without this mini! It looks great over any lip color and is a lifesaver for my cuticles.”

4.  LipSurgence™ lip tints in perky and spirited: “Spirited is our newest lip tint release. Inspired by the pantone color of year, tangerine tango, this shade is sure to brighten up your day!”

5. Dogeared Make a Wish necklace card: “I’ve been wearing Dogeared Make a Wish necklaces for a few years now.  They‘re whimsical and chic.”

6. iPhone: “A girl’s best friend.”

7. Make Love Not Trash tote: “ We used these totes for the gift bags that we gave out at our Life Happens event.”

8. Grady’s Cold Brew: “A delicious iced coffee concentrate.”

9. Lifesaver mints: “Our PR manager Jess and I go through a bag a week — it’s kind of a problem.”

10.  Her dog: “My BFF Taylor! Cutest dog in the world!
