Campus Celebrity: Maureen Kelly



            Have you ever heard of the cosmetic line, Tarte Cosmetics? The founder and CEO of Tarte, Maureen Kelly, is actually a graduate of Binghamton! Tarte is a high quality natural ingredient cosmetic line that is well known for their mascaras and cheek products (totally heck out the Cheek Stains), which are found at Sephora and Ulta. While Kelly was in graduate school at Columbia, her husband urged her to live out her dream and go into makeup, so she dropped out of school and founded Tarte, a pretty gutsy move. However, following her dream proved worthwhile as many celebrities, including Oprah, swear by her products. ‘
