Skincare Expert and Make-up Artist
New York based, Nicaragua born editorial, runway and celebrity make up artist and skincare expert Julio Sandino has been in hot demand in the fashion and beauty industry for two and a half decades.
Regularly working his magic for the glossy pages of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Conde Nast Traveler and Rolling Stone, Julio has created heart-stopping looks for A-list celebrities and top models including Angelina Jolie, Tilda Swinton, Naomi Campbell, Carolyn Murphy, Alek Wek and Erin O’Connor.
A former member of the NARS artistic team, Julio has collaborated with top make-up artists and beauty brands including François Nars, Pat McGrath and Shiseido, revered photographers François Nars and David LaChapelle and high-profile designers and luxury fashion brands Versace, Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana, Diane Von Furstenberg and the list goes on.
A certified practitioner in cosmeceutical skincare, natural health and the holistic therapies of aromatherapy, ayurveda and herbology, Jùlio discovered the healing, beautifying powers of Moringa oil during a trip to his homeland and created the luxury OILùJ ‘Life Oil’ as a natural beauty elixir to enhance the health of skin, hair and body.
“As a New Yorker that lived through the trauma 9/11, I felt the need to help my community, and that prompted me to pursue the study of medical and therapeutic skincare and natural health solutions that work holistically to deliver real results without chemicals.”
