the look: tarte + hayden-harnett
You know we heart tarte at Beauty Banter, and we also happen to love fashion. So when I found out that tarte was working behind the scenes during Fashion Week for the Hayden-Harnett show, I wanted to get the details. Held at The Gabarron Foundation Carriage House Center for the Arts on September 10th, tarte makeup artist Laura McGuire created the look for the models sporting Hayden-Harnett’s Spring 2010 clothing and leather goods. A perfect match.
The H-H collection was “inspired by a nomadic journey through lava fields and desert landscapes.” So, McGuire and her team of artists “used this to create a warm complexion with a strong, geometric brow and soft lip. Think natural with just a hint of healthy glow. The eyes remain muted with a major focus on the brows.”
For the face – Smooth Operator Oil-Free Foundation with SPF 20; The Eraser 4-in-1 Natural Concealer; Dark Circle Defense Natural Under Eye Corrector; Provocateur Powder Pressed Mineral Powder; Rest Assured Brightening Wand
Cheeks – Park Ave Princess Mineral Bronzer Powder; Green Siren Natural Cheek Stain
Eyes – Lifted Natural Eye Primer; Sandstone Creaseless shadow; Femme Natural Eye Palette; Chocolate Indelible Wink Liquid Liner; Chocolate emphasEYES eye pencil; Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara
Without parabens, phthalates, sulfates, petrochemicals or synthetic fragrance, tarte is lux beauty with fabulous eco-responsibility.
My new tarte favorite is the toolbox brow know-how eyebrow kit. The little lavender box fits in the palm of your hand but don’t let the size fool you. Inside it houses brow wax, powder, gel and pencil, along with a brush, tweezers and brow templates. Perfect for travel but just as great for home, it’s everything you need in one place. xo alex.
