Powder Puff Event

12 Feb

Lovelies,

I had the pleasure of meeting Emily Weiss from Into The Gloss blog! She was absolutely stunning that night and she is so down to earth and open to everyone!

How did we meet exactly?

Well Holt Renfrew, a leading luxurious fashion specialty department store in Toronto was hosting the Powder Puff event in collaboration with Mercedes Benz. The Powder Puff event was like a beauty parlour for all the beauty fanatics out there!

All guests were introduced to the new launches of Nars and Laura Mercier Spring cosmetic collections, treated to manicures, makeup brush cleansing, oeuvres, consultations by ALL makeup lines such as Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Guerlain, Cle de Peau, Burberry, Dior, and so on. They were many options! Here are a few photos of all the booths set up!

Holt Renfrew had brought in Emily Weiss as their special guest to talk about all the latest Spring beauty must haves of the season! Lisa Tant, former Flare editor in chief, who is now the Fashion Editor at Holt Renfrew interviewed Emily about all beauty essentials for Spring and Emily spoke about her latest obsessions which are bold brows and bold lip colours!

A Beauty Party at Holt Renfrew with Emily Weiss!

5 Jan

Does anyone else love Into The Gloss as much as we do? If you haven’t checked them out yet, I would run and click on their site asap!. Just be sure to thank us after you’ve fallen in love with the endless beauty features they have on their site…No seriously, we would appreciate the recognition, haha. (seriously..)

Emily Weiss is the founder and creative director of Into The Gloss, a dedicated beauty blog with articles about everything from the best trick on nailing that winged eyeliner, to personal q&a’s with some of our favorite models/designers/editors/celebs/girls next door. Who doesn’t want to know what Coco Rocha has in her makeup bag? Or Kate Moss, or Gisele Bundchen? What is the inspiration behind the makeup used in Vivienne Westwood’s Spring 2013 fashion show? How about Proenza Schouler or Marc Jacobs? Do you want to know? Hello! We do! Emily Weiss is absolutely stunning, and her personality shines through her writing. Did we mention that she was stunning? I envy the short hair, and am seriously considering going super short this year – just putting it out there. (K) We love the style in which Into The Gloss conducts their interviews and features. ITG reels you in with honesty, fantastic photography, and amazing content for the beauty obsessed! Every time we read an article on ITG, we feel empowered, inspired and beautiful. We also find ourselves LOL’ing every now and then too. Beauty can be funny too. (That is, of course, when you aren’t the one with the lipstick teeth at Monday’s morning meeting..)
