kevinauciontoolsKevyn Aucoin is known in the industry for his Sensual Skin Enhancer (AKA, concealer). But he is also known for his cosmetic tools.

In fact, his eye lash curler is featured in the October issue of Life & Style Weekly as a winner in the magazine's 2012 Best of Beauty Awards. In addition, the eye lash curler was also noted as a Best of Beauty winner in the October issue of Allure. Two awards in one month — that's saying something!

Yet, there's even more exciting news for those who live in and around Charlotte. You can now find Kevyn Aucoin at Jeffre Scott.

Not only are the products functional, they are beautiful, as well!
vllipcheekstainA few weeks ago, I set out on a quest to find the top lip/cheek stains for summer. Something easy that gives stay put color.

While I tested and compared many, only one brand stood out — head and shoulders above the rest — worthy of your attention. That brand: Vincent Longo.

I am in love with the original lip and cheek gel stain in My Sunshine. The color is perfect and layers beautifully whether you choose a clear or tinted lip balm or lip gloss to go over top. The best part, it's waterproof, kiss proof and truly long lasting.

To wear on cheeks, ensure your face is well hydrated and apply to the apples of your cheeks, before your tinted moisturizer. It gives such a beautiful glow.

Another favorite of mine is Vincent's Pearlessence lip and cheek gel stain in Bellini Love. I have layered this over My Sunshine, then applied clear lip balm. I have also layered this under my sheer red lipstick so that the iridescence comes through. Gorgeous! And Bellini Love on cheeks ... ooh la la!

You can pick up these fantastic lip/cheek stains at Jeffre Scott in Charlotte and Turner & Scott Apothetique in Asheville. Your search for the ultimate lip and cheek stain stops here.

She's gorgeous. I am completely entranced.

Perhaps I'm still stuck on green, but I cannot get past these eyes. I am excited to try this radiant summer look, compliments of BECCA. A fabulous glow from the inside out. And those brows!

What a great way to kick off the week.

gemnoirjuliehewettWorking on the set of Pearl Harbor, Julie Hewett needed the perfect old fashion red lipstick, but with up-to-date and natural ingredients. So, she created her own!

What an honor it was to meet Julie Hewett in March at Jeffre Scott. She is not only a talented make-up artist, but also a genius cosmixologist. And, Julie is extremely personable to boot — you just want to sit down with her and get lost in conversation over a glass of wine. Oh the stories she could tell!

As a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, an honor and exceptional accomplishment, the Julie Hewett brand is down to earth goodness just as Julie herself. Come find your perfect shade of red lipstick — only at Jeffre Scott. I found mine, Gem Noir!

As in lip color.

It's this time of year I reach for my spring favorites. And one of them is this shimmery coral lip gloss by Duchess Cosmetics. It smells delicious and I love the name, Cindy (as in Cindy Crawford).

Named after the mega supermodels of my younger years — Christy, Cindy, Claudia, Kate, Linda, Naomi — these highly pigmented glosses go on smooth and easy. They are infused with Vitamin E, and are paraben-, lanolin-, gluten- and cruelty free.

Pick your perfect Duchess color at Jeffre Scott!
