Bathing Beauty: Tina Turnbow

Tina Turnbow is quite possibly one of my favorite makeup artists to emerge as of late. She paints the faces of such celebs like Vera Farmiga and Keri Russell and just designed her first collection under a collaboration deal with tarte cosmetics. She’s into all things green and doesn’t just preach it, but practices such beliefs too. Her tarte line is made with natural and organic ingredients and, as you will soon discover, she’s a big believer in green skincare. She’s super talented and crazy nice — a practical rarity in the world of Hollywood.

I had to ask my newest obsession my favorite beauty related questions. Here are Tina’s answers.

Kimberly Sayer of London-slimming/contouring lotion, helps cellulite, tightens and tones (need I say more?) and..for smell and moisture, i found this awesome body lotion at Duane Reade! Shea Moisture Organic Coconut and Hibiscus Shea Butter lotion w/Songyi Mushroom. The softness and smell will become addictive, you don’t need perfume when you use this.

Favorite beauty secret you’ve picked up along the way?
I would call my friend about getting fillers and injections, she’d say NO!!! I’m so grateful — let yourself age gracefully and naturally.
