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!

The Holidays!

25 Dec

Lovelies,

After lots of contemplating I’ve finally put together my Holiday outfit for Christmas Eve dinner 🙂 Can you believe I bought this skirt two months ago and saved it to wear for the holidays! I dont know how I restrainted from wearing it earlier! It’s a perfect fit if you ask me. I’ve now grown a fascination with these ‘cupcake’ skirts! Doubt that’s the proper term for the skirt but to me it looks like a cupcake haha.

Here’s my holiday look! 🎄🎁

My Daily Face

25 Nov

I love cosmetics! If you didn’t know before, you do now! Everything beauty related is up my alley. Here is a quick rundown of the products I use on a daily basis for work, lunch with friends or just running errands.

1. Makeup Forever Mat Velvet + Foundation in #25: This is my HOLY GRAIL foundation. It goes on smoothly, with a beautiful, matte finish and lasts hours. I apply this foundation and most of my other liquid foundations with my Sephora Airbrush #55 foundation brush

2. M.A.C.’s Blot Pressed Powder: I use a kabuki brush from ELF to press this over my foundation to set it in place and keep it matte. I really like this powder, however I have yet to find a powder I absolutely love (I use shade medium)

3. Garnier’s Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller : This is another HG product. This acts as two products in one. This formula has caffeine to wake up the under eyes; combined with mineral pigment to conceal dark circles. There are unfortunately only 2 shades, light and tan which have worked out for myself and Julie perfectly.

4. Sephora eye curler : Not much needs to be said. It does the job

5. L’oreal Million Lashes original formula (this is important) I love this mascara with everything I know, and believe me, I’ve tried many ! It’s a chunky, rubberized brush with tons of bristles that catch the last right at the root – love this. I always need q-tips to clean up my lids – this is a must!

6.Annabelle Eyebrow Pencil in Auburn: I actually have been going back and forth between this pencil (which is fantastic for redheads) as well as a brow powder. I like to fill in the middle of my brows with this, then brush and shape it out using an angled brush. I love this brow duo by Benefit

7.NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo: I actually just received this in a goodie bag from the brand new opening of Sephora at The Eaton’s Centre and am smitten with this product. I’m one of those girls that was scared to use bronzer, and trust me, I still use a fairly light hand, but the 2 of these give me face a great flush of color – perfect for work, and with a heavier hand and a bold lip? Perfect for working a night out too! I also really love the blush “Cubic” by M.A.C for an everyday blush.

8. Lips – when it comes to lips, I switch it up a lot. I usually have on a pink gloss over some lip balm for casual days. On my lips below is Shu Uemura’s lip gloss in Pale Shimmery Melon

What do you think?
