Julie Hewett Cheekie and Shimmy


Hollywood makeup artist Julie Hewett designed her eye catching line after working on the set of Pearl Harbor inspired her to create true long-lasting red lipsticks. With packaging as beautiful as the line itself, her products are fresh and focused on beauty products real women want.

A few stand outs include Cheekie, her cheek and lip stain that manages to walk the fine line being both rich and sheer with a generous amount of color given in each pot. Check out Peachie, a middle of the road coral to bring all skin tones brightly into spring. Also beautifully versatile is Shimmy, her luminous face and body shimmer cream for a hint of sheen anywhere you dare from lips to declote. Set in a moisturizing base, this doesn’t have the sometimes chalky feel some shimmers leave behind, it’s moisturizing and melts perfectly into the skin.

NARS Highlighting/ Bronzing Blush Duo


Some products need a lot of explanation, while some need none at all. Orgasm by NARS is the best selling cheek color around winning women over for its universally flattering coral flush in an easy to blend formula. New for spring is this duo featuring the classic shade along with a highlighter I use often, Albatross. Mineral makeup, I believe, started a revolution away from matted skin and more toward luminous glowing skin which is what Albatross is all about. Apply this subtle sheen anywhere; right above the cheek color, declote’, and even down the fronts of shins for an eye catching bare leg.

CARGO EyeLighter


I love showing women products that they would normally pick up in the store, look at, then put back down because they just aren’t sure what they would do with them. Sometimes these are the products that make all the difference in a look like CARGO’s EyeLighter, a double sided stick that houses a rounded spongy tipped applicator dipped in shimmery white shadow and a pointed tip dipped in matte white. Now the ‘how to’ (shown) won’t turn out exactly like the photo which has airbrushed out the fine lines and creases we all naturally have, but the general application is the same for everyone.

This is a great trick for those with dark circles to brighten up the eye and also for those shadow-phoebes who want a dressy eye without using eye shadow to achieve it. The picture illustrates perfectly the best of what this look is all about, darker liner on the top and bottom lash line, a neutral shadow- just enough to give emphasis and a groomed brow. The placement is key, but highlighting all areas isn’t necessary, those with fine lines under the eye might find highlighting pronounces them, but the look is day and night friendly. Eyelighter gives your tired eyes a little perk in the morning and your nighttime sexy eye a little twist.
