It goes without saying that I’m a big fan of tarte cosmetics. They were at the forefront of the eco-beauty movement, bringing green to the mainstream. So, I was thrilled when tarte contacted me to see if I’d like to give some of their eco-chic to our readers.
Summer has arrived in L.A. pretty late this year (we have sunshine 364 days of the year, I’m not complaining) and while I’d love to have the freckles and golden skin that I had as a kid, these days I get my tan from a bottle and slather on the SPF. Come summer, I put away the pale pink polishes in favor of corals, but I also make changes in my makeup as well. When tarte sent me their new park ave princess matte bronzer ($29), it was the perfect replacement for my usual cheek color . My sister, whose porcelain skin only knows how to burn, was curious to see if it could give her a bit of color. And it did (thanks for modeling, Mae). Applied gently with a kabuki brush across her entire face she got the flush of color she wanted. And it works with both of our skin tones (mine is more yellow, hers pink). Unlike the original park ave princess mineral bronzer, this powder is matte and it’s waterproof. Perfect in the approaching triple-digit weather.
While using SPF can prevent future suyn damage, tarte's ReCreate anti-aging line helps to repair damage that's already been done. And they've added a silicone-free face primer ($32) to the collection. Ideal for acne-prone and sensitive skin, this primer is clinically proven to increase moisture (but is still safe for oily skin), decrease wrinkles, and increase skin firmness. And, when applied under the park ave princess bronzer, it helps to keep makeup from fading.
As always, tarte has formulated these products to soothe and nourish your skin without a paraben, petrochemical, synthetic dye or fragrance to be found.
You can find these tarte products online at tarte.com, beauty.com and dermstore.com, and both online and at Sephora stores nationwide.
