NO MORE TRAVELING!

I’m a firm believer in adding this extra step, especially as we get older and lip lines creep up from years of using straws and pursing our lips (mental note: quit straws and anything else that’s harmful ASAP!). There’s nothing attractive about lipstick that has seeped into even the tiniest of lines and started traveling outward from your lips… luckily for us, there are clear lip liners that create an invisible barrier, preventing lipstick from bleeding and feathering. Hallelujah!! (more…)

TRENDING

Hey tastemakers, this one’s for you! Ombré, with its gorgeous slow fade from dark to light, has found its way from fashion to hair color and ended up smack on your lips! It’s not just a trendy look though, it’s actually a really pretty effect that highlights your top lip, bringing all of the attention there. And there’s something a little effortless and less “done up” about not having your bottom lip as dark as your top lip. Anyway, I’m loving it lately and wanted to share the easiest way to re-create it yourself. (more…)

EARTH DAY: BEAUTY FOR A CAUSE

post by amy nadine, graphic design by eunice chun

We here at TBD are big supporters of Earth Day on April 22nd and try to do as much as we can to leave this planet as beautiful as we found it. This year we wanted to do something special for our friends around the world who don’t have access to clean water, because every 20 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease. So we collaborated with Tarte, one of our favorite green + eco-friendly cosmetic lines, to create a limited edition collection of our favorite four products and for every kit sold, Tarte will donate 20% of the proceeds to winetowater.org. The organization helps bring clean water to 9 countries that desperately need it through building wells, filters and irrigation systems. We couldn’t be more thrilled! Each Down to Earth Kit comes in an eco-chic quilted bag and includes:

  • a full size LipSurgence™ lip tint in enchanted (the prettiest rose shade that Amy Nadine even wore on her wedding day!)
  • a gifted Amazonian clay smart mascara (will absolutely become your favorite mascara)
  • an Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in blissful (a warm peach that gives every skin tone a glowing flush)
  • multiplEYE™ lash-enhancing liquid liner (formulated with a lash-growing serum so every time you trace it along your lash line, you’re helping grow lashes!)

We can’t think of much better than treating your face to synthetic-free gorgeousness while donating to a great charity! Click here to grab your limited-edition Down To Earth Kit while supplies last and have a wonderful Earth Day!

Retails for $49.00 (a $90 value if 4 items purchased separately). 20% of proceeds donated to winetowater.org.

**Tarte has added a contest to give a kit to one lucky reader! Click here by April 15, 2012 at 11:59pm EST and good luck! CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED, and the lucky winner is…  Jackie S. from Essex Junction, VT! Congrats Jackie!

By now you must know how much we love Tarte. And surely you’re also aware of how much we love doing giveaways, so this post is double the excitement! Tarte is generously sponsoring an exclusive giveaway with their new “Puttin’ on the Glitz” Color Collection clutch by gifting them to FIVE readers! Here’s why this thing is so rad — it’s like a portfolio of makeup. It comes with 3 palettes that you can swap in & out, and it can fully replace your purse when traveling light.
