She is one of the foremost beauty makeup artists actively working in Hollywood today. and is also a member of the exclusive Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, of which there are only 150 members internationally in the Hair and Makeup Category.
Julie Hewett has worked on famous faces such as Mandy Moore, Hilary Swank, Nicole Kidman, Kate Beckinsale, Debra Messing, Liv Tyler to name a few.
The Bijou Collection ($20 each) includes luscious sheers containing essence of orange blossom. Wear them alone or layer them. Great for all skin types. Perfect for everyday wear. Hue lip pencils compliment these eight shades: Lulu, Edie, Jules, Biba, Kiki, Odessa, Celeste, and Amelie.
Review: I received the Amelie. Amelie looks mauve in the picture above, but it is a really pretty lavender shade. I normally wouldn't wear purplish lipstick, but this turned out to be my favorite shade so far from Julie Hewett. It really complements my skin tone. This color is perfect for fall or spring.
The Noir Lipstick features the best long-lasting, double-pigmented lipsticks with the essence of rosebud and camellia oils. As a compliment to the lipstick collection, Julie also created lip liners for each of the noir reds.
Julie Hewett Noir Lipstick Collection ($22.50 each) was inspired by the creator's love of old movies. She created an entire line of red dedicated to the starlettes of each decade, 1920s - 1950s. This collection includes: Coco Noir, Femme Noir, Sin Noir, Nude Noir, Rouge Noir, and Belle Noir.
Review: I received the the Sin Noir and Nude Noir. I'm not really into red, but Sin Noir is a really beautiful shade of a wine red and will make you feel like a classic starlette wearing it. This is definitely a shade that is not for the wallflower. It is bold and daring. This is another lipstick favorite of mine. I also like the Nude Noir which is a warm-toffee color that is another perfect shade for fall.
I highly recommend all of the Julie Hewett shades, because her lip stick lasts throughout the day without having the need to re-apply.
A delicate blend of essentials oils of rose, Camellia, and orange which heals, not masks, chapped lips and skin. Camellia oil is closest to human skin oil. Used for beauty in ancient China and is petroleum-free. This available in the balm stick or balm pot ($14).
Review: I was kind of expecting this gloss to be orangeish, but it goes on clear which I don't mind at all. This is the perfect gloss when you want to play it low-key or to spice up your matte lip shades. You can also use it on your face or eyes.
A luminescent "starlight" shine to highlight your face, eyes, lips & body. Unlike any product you've seen. A swipe of shimmie ($22) will take your look from day to evening. Available in 3 shades: Pinkie, Goldie, and Cleo.
Review: I tried out the Cleo. This shade is a very vibrant shade of copper. The picture above doesn't do this all-over body shimmer any justice. I've never been much of a shimmer fan, because most of the shimmers I've tried out had this showgirl vibe to it. Needless to say, I looked like a Las Vegas tart. However, this isn't the case with this shimmer. I love to use this with my other eyeshadows to give 'em a new look. This shimmer feels a bit slippery whenever I first apply, but it dries out nicely as long as I use a dab.
If you're looking for shimmer that doesn't make you look like you came off the Vegas runway, I highly recommend this shimmer! I'd most definitely be interested in trying out the Pinkie.
The "Mandy" Palette ($48) I received was created for Mandy Moore during filming of "Because I Said So". This was also featured in InStyle and Lucky Magazine. This palette includes two cheekies in peachie and natural, a shimmie in goldie, and a lip lush in mimi. This is the best makeup palette I've tried so far and is worth every cent. This palette isn't dark as it is shown in the picture. The lip gloss in picture looks like a bubble-gum pink when in reality it is actually a very light pink. I've been using the gloss more than anything and I'm about out. I also like to blend the shimmie with the cheekie in "natural" and put it on as an eye shadow. If you're opting for a soft and natural look, this palette is the way to go. It is very low-key, yet playful.
