After interviewing celebrity makeup artist, Julie Hewett, about her panache for red lips, classic old Hollywood glamour, and tips for how to pick the best red lipstick –  I of course had to put her gorgeous red lipsticks – Belle, Femme, Rouge and Coco – to the test. Pros: Each lipstick is made with fast absorbing camellia oil that offers nourishment, hydration and produces a creamy texture. And Julie created each shade variant to fit each skin tone. I love how easy to apply the lipsticks are which I attribute to a) their easy glide and b) the perfect pointed shape. Cons: At…

Product: Rituel De Fille Inner Glow Cremé Pigments Why you’ll love them: Cream multi-purpose (eyes, cheeks & lips) products have a special place in my heart. I’m a lazy makeup girl these days. If I can’t apply it or blend it easily with my fingers, chances are said product will eventually migrate it’s way to the back of my bathroom drawer – aka the graveyard. Which is one reason why I’ve fallen hard for Los Angeles based brand Rituel De Fille and their Inner Glow Cremé Pigments. My sister whom prefers men’s t-shirts, purchases mascara every five years and wears makeup every…

Each organic lipstick was created with…

When I first started exploring green beauty brands back almost a year ago, Maya Chia was one of the first ones I tried and I’ve been in love with the brand ever since. Founded by, Susanne Norwitz, a thoughtful, meticulous, genius formulator, who takes her time with each launch, the brand’s products incorporate the nourishing benefits of chia seed oil extracted with a proprietary “supercritical” method that leaves intact a higher percentage of the oil’s nutrients. You can tell Susanne really thinks about what her audience wants, not just pumping out product after product. Each piece in the line has a purpose,…

Summer is all about lightweight, effortless, there-but-not-there makeup and skincare. While you’re sipping rosé and I’m sipping my mocktail (I stopped drinking due to my PD) and sweating like a pig (or is that just me?) at those BBQs/picnics/beach days/vacays etc. the last thing you want is your makeup to melt. Ew. Not only is it not hot, it’s uncomfortable! Case and point why you need the new organic lip tint colors and lip scrubs from Henné Organics to keep you looking fresh this summer and never melted. Henné Organics has recently launched what have become my favorite products of their entire…
