Maureen Kelly, Tarte brand founder, creates easy-to-use products in natural formulas, with packaging inspired by the runway. This year, she’ll be gifting her favorite ladies with her bestselling oil.
HAVE YOU BEEN NAUGHTY OR NICE THIS HOLIDAY?
I try to find a good balance of both. When it comes to work, definitely nice! Being able to give back is an important part of Tarte. That’s really fulfilling and makes me proud. We donate to charities and of course our operatives in the Amazon help promote sustainable management of the Brazilian rainforest.
WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO BEAUTY GIFT AND WHY?
I’ll be gifting my two sisters, my mom, and my son’s teachers and babysitters the Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil. It’s awesome for when you’re travelling. I get dry, and chapped skin from the plane so I always have it with me.
DO YOU HAVE A BEAUTY RESOLUTION FOR 2013?
Work-life balance. Trying to work out a little more, but not be stressed if I don’t get to everything, and be more balanced. It makes me happier and that makes me more beautiful. More water, too!
