So yesterday I posted a video tutorial using Julie Hewett’s fabulous Soiree Eyeshadow Palette and Biba lipstick. The pictures here are from that shoot, which was part of a bridal fashion shoot. The model, Mallory, is wearing Soiree eyeshadows and Biba lips. The photographer was the amazing Kelly Cappelli, and this was shot at Studio5
I will be posting a photo makeup tutorial from this shoot as soon as the pictures are sent over, but in the meantime have a look at the products.
The Soiree palette is super versatile – and these days that’s pretty much critical when considering which products to purchase.
There are no “throw away” colors in this palette. We’ve all bought eyeshadow quads before where 2 colors are awesome, one is on the iffy side of OK, and the other is awful, which quite frankly seems to be the standard M.O for many makeup companies.
All four shades in this palette are sensational!
When we shot the video I couldn’t find my little cheat sheet with the names of the colors, so I’m going to give them to you now:
Top left is Luca, a matte, all over shade of warm beige that is universally flattering.
Top right is Remy, a pale champagne/ taupe. It gives a soft warm glow.
Bottom left is Terra, a nutmeg shade that is perfect for creating domension while keeping a soft natural look, or for powering it up at night. It is a multi purpose shade that can also be used to contour cheekbones and finish brows. Love it!
Bottom right is Black Chandelier. Deep, sexy anthracite. This one can be used wet or dry, has a little shimmer to keep the eye alive, can be used as shadow, liner, is beautiful for sultry, smokey eye.
When I do a bold eye or a really smokey eye I love to do a really soft wash of a mouth. I love this lip in Bibo. Its got enough backbone that you don’t lose the mouth, but is so soft and cashmerey that the mouth looks all kids of sexy kissable beautiful.
I wear this one all the time, and can’t get enough of it!
The Julie Hewett line is not sold in most department stores. You can go to their website to see where the nearest location is for you, or you can purchase directly online.
If you haven’t seen my other posts about Julie Hewett products, I have to tell you that they are amongst my absolute favorites. Julie is a major movie makeup artist in LA, who created this line to both be used by you and me, and also to be used on the biggest actresses in the world on the big screen.
