Every once in a while something truly special comes along in makeup-land. Something luscious and spectacular, something that stops you in your tracks and takes your breath away.
And such is the pure magic that is h.wood.beauty.
Using only the purest of ingredients combined with healing essential oils, this holistic tea inspired line is an extension of the uber-chic h.wood Tea Room in Hollywood, the home of the world famous “Prohibition Teas”.
The beauty line was designed to meet pro makeup artist wants, needs and desires, culminating in high performance products with a texture, color quality, and longevity that not only make them the ideal choice for pro artists, but translates to perfection for a glamour girl on the go.
For the past few weeks I have been using h.wood.beauty products non stop both on shoots and wearing them myself.
The first thing you notice about the h.wood.beauty eye shadows is the velvety cashmere texture and finish. They are super easy to apply, blend beautifully and literally last all day and night. They are also highly pigmented, so the color stays true all day.
You can purchase the shadows individually to make up your own beauty palette. Not sure where to start? Every day at the moment I’m wearing the beautiful soft golden hue of Beverly (pictured above) with Olympic over the lid and crease (a soft mulled berry hue, extremely flattering to all skin tones – I’ve also been using it in everyone) and then I use Mulholland shadow (deep velvet mocha) to buff out and line the eye. The combination of the three is really moody, soft and beautiful.
The h.wood powder blush are sheer blendable colors perfect for a fresh, natural look, but build out to a full cheek color when you want more intensity.
You can also layer it over their cream blush.
h.wood .beauty believes that the perfect look starts with the perfect pout, and so their lip collection is extensive. From lip tea scrubs to balms, to lipsticks and glosses, all are designed to keep the lips hydrated and nourished, while giving luxurious even color.
The h.wood.beauty lipstick color choices are exquisite. I used Clara on a shoot this past weekend and everyone was oohing and aahing over how gorgeous it looked on our model. Every day with the eye shadows I mentioned above, I’ve been wearing Sadie, with Cabo gloss over top.
From left to right the h.wood.beauty lipglosses are Cabo, Vegas, Maui and Napa.
The color intensity of these glosses doesn’t break down as the wand travels the lip. It is spectacularly even and full, yet sheer at the same time. They are ultra moisturizing and vanilla-caramel flavored. The shine is long lasting too.
There is a huge underground buzz happening about the h.wood.beauty line. Fashion editors from all the major magazines are in love with it, models ask for it by name, and makeup artists swoon at the mere sight of it (especially me!)
