Playin’ Footsie
Whether you do your own or hit the local spa, a good pedicure is a summer essential. Try DuWop’s innovative Toe Polish, which incorporates Tea Tree Oil to combat nail fungus and improve the appearance of toenails. Available in six pedi-perfect shades including Flip Flop, a pretty coral-based fuchsia and Stiletto, the perfect intense red, you can buy it at Henri Bendel or www.duwop.com

Crease-Free Color
BeneFit’s Creaseless Cream Shadows deliver as promised. Adjust your application – we like using our fingers – to as sheer or as deep a wash of color as you prefer and color lasts more than eight hours. Strut, a deep, dark charcoal doubles as amazing liner for the new smoky eye. Visit www.benefitcosmetics.com to purchase.

Thi for Two
Makeup artist Taylor Pham designed THI Cosmetics specifically with Asian women in mind. The yellow based shades of the Seamless White Tea Foundation suit Asian skintones perfectly and incorporate traditional ingredients like white tea, bamboo and ginseng to keep skin healthy and looking fabulous. We also love the soft, never sticky, Lipgloss. Visit www.thicosmetics.com for more information or to purchase.

You’re So Vain
If you’re like me and you absolutely obsess over your brows, VANITYMARK’s Ultra Brow Kit by makeup artist Brett Freedman is a must. Designed with ease of use in mind and available in six shades to match any hair color, the kit includes a perfect double-ended Ultra-Brow Brush and an amazingly soft Ultra-Brow Pencil. Freedman himself says that the Blondie pencil is among his favorite creations, “I’ve been on an exhausting search all these years for the perfect pencil for Blondes. My Blondie isn’t too ashy…I added a bit of warmth. It’s so flattering. I pat myself on the back for that one!” Visit www.vanitymarkcosmetics.com to purchase.
