This is the story of a curly haired little girl with a lifelong love for animals and an insatiable longing to create something beautiful.
I’m Taryn Rose Martin, a 20-something beauty junkie. I named Lipstick & a Latte for my two greatest vices. Since its inception in 2012, L&L has become my outlet for sharing my passion for cruelty free makeup, as well as anything else I find beautiful. I’m not a stylist or makeup artist or guru, nor have I received formal training in any of these areas.
Ethnicity: 1/4 Indian, 1/4 Chinese, 1/2 “Euromutt” (primarily Slovenian, French and English)
Skin type: sensitive, combination skin with warm undertones
Eyes: warm brown
Hair: midnight brown (almost black) and curly
