I was thrilled to be included on RackedLA today in their Seven Superstar Makeup Artists Reveal their Best Beauty Hacks.  When I was asked what shortcuts or little beauty tricks I had up my sleeve, two came out on top.

Now that the weather is getting warmer, I’m wearing a lot more sandals.  And although I try to keep my pedicure looking fresh, my heels take a beating.  To combat the dryness and cracks, I found an easy and painless trick to keep them nice and soft.  Lucas’ Papaw Ointment is a miracle cream and I’ve written about it before (as have many others), but it’s truly the best stuff.  I use it on everything from rashes to cuticles and dry lips, or as a highlighter on cheekbones.  But it makes the best foot cream.  At night, I slather a generous amount onto my heels and cover with cotton socks.  (I cut the toes off an old pair so that my feet stay cool.)  When I wake up in the morning, my feet are soft and my heels look like new!

My go-to drugstore favorite right now is Maybelline’s Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation.  They make great contour sticks, blending seamlessly into skin and come in a variety of colors.  They are super affordable and easy to find, making them even better!
