Every girl loves shoes. That is pretty much a given, right? Ok, maybe I’m a tad bit biased, but aside from shoes, the other things that each and every girly girl loves is makeup! From the time we are wee ones, us gals somehow manage to dig in our mom’s make up cases and smear on that lipstick, and rose up our cheeks with some blush. And from then on, we are always on the hunt for the perfect cosmetics – the right tint or hue, the blush with the most natural look, just the right red for our lips, and the mascara that makes our lashes look most luscious.
During my hunt for the perfect make up, my priorities have changed a bit, and over time it’s become increasingly important for me to have natural, healthy make up. I’ve had my fair share of breakouts and blotchiness due to bad, cheap make up – but those days are over now that I’ve discovered tarte cosmetics! tarte is a leader in high-performance naturals, all cruelty-free products, with pure and healthy ingredients. How do they do it, you ask? Their ingredients include nothing but fruit and plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, essential oils and other naturally derived ingredients. No dangerous parabens for your gorgeous skin, no mineral oil, or other synthetic fragrances that us health-conscious gals try and stay away from. Love it! So I thought I’d share with y’all a few of my favorite tarte cosmetics products – add it to your summer wish list, ladies! Trust me.
The ‘Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush’ is not only a “Best of Beauty” Allure magazine award winner, but also the best long-wearing blush out there. Infused with true Amazonia clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River, this blush is perfect for all skin types, giving a dash of color and shimmer, while balancing and hydrating skin as you wear it all day long. If you have dry, flaky skin (which you may this summer!) this is the perfect mask for your case!
LipSurgence™ matte lip tint’ is that color. Another bestseller, this formula moisturizes naturally, glides on smoothly, and has a scented hint of mint to finish. Packed with color as well as vitamin C & E, pepperming and jojoba oil, you won’t want to put anything else on those smackers of yours! The ‘lucky’ color is perfect for summer, and I dig the ‘envy’ color for the fall/winter months. Lasts forever, too! Adore.
lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara’ is literally the answer to your prayers. Considered the “push-up bra for your lashes” this mascara will give you that BOOST that your eyes have been looking for! As usual, tarte brings a clinically proven formula that is safe, and effective in increasing lash volume. Va-va-voom! Throw on some of this for summer, and you’re beach-ready!
tarte – you will thank me for it!
