Hello gorgeous! I’ve got a couple of life updates recently to explain my absence the past few weeks. Work has been crazy busy, the family home that I grew up in went up for sale (which meant a ton of work to get it all ready for sale) and I moved into my own place (which means I’ve been living out of boxes for the past couple of weeks while I wait for the rest of my furniture). I’ve now got my own office/beauty room in my new pad, which is so fantastic, and I can’t wait to get it all set up and ready to go – pics to follow! As part of my move, I’ve got a ton of posts coming to help those of you are going to be moving soon out… Stay tuned for those!

Anyways, what better time to dive headfirst back into the blog than with the start of Fashion Week in Toronto? As always, WMCFW is a great source of beauty inspiration with Maybelline, Redken & Essie backstage prepping the models for the shows. I’m always so excited to see the new looks & trends that are going to be rolling out over the course of the week, and with talent like Grace Lee (Lead Makeup Artist for Maybelline Canada), Rita Remark (Global Lead Educator for Essie) and Jorge Joao (Lead Stylist for Redken) on hand you know all of the looks are going to be top notch. This week I’ll be sharing some of my favourite looks from the shows + tips on how to get them from the respective brands. I’ll also be hanging out at the tents tomorrow to check out the Star Wars presentation and backstage beauty for Pink Tartan (hands down one of my faves every season), so be sure to follow me on Instagram so you catch all of the action!

First up, I had to share the Maybelline look for Matthew Gallagher’s SS16 show. The 3D glass sculpture inspired glittery eye is so fab (and I’m thinking a necessity for New Year’s Eve, am I right?). Take a look at the steps & products used for this look below!

Face: To start, the skintone was evened out with Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation, before contouring and highlighting with the new Master Contour Palette (available January 2016), with a light dusting of pink added to the cheecks for a slight flush.

Eyes: This look was all about the eyes! A base was created using The Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette before craft glitter was added for show-stopping sparkle, followed by a coat of The Falsies Push-Up Drama Mascara on the top and bottom lashes. Eyebrows were then filled in with the Brow Drama Pro Palette.

Lips: 
A subtle pink lip finished off this look, with a combination of Color Sensational Creamy Mattes in Ravishing Rose and Color Sensational Color Elixir in Rose Defying for a fresh, light bit of colour.

COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick in Bombshell Pink, Euphoria, Seduce Scarlet & Sultry Sienna

With the colder temperatures looming, I’m getting ready to slip into fall-mode, which means it’s time to change up my beauty look! When it comes to lipsticks, I love going for bold, deep shades (usually in the red family) thought I don’t mind adding a pop of a brighter colour here and there to change things up. And of course, you can never go wrong with a nude lip!

My fave shade so far has got to be Euphoria. It’s a gorgeous deep berry that makes me just a little more excited about making the transition to fall style (I’m just not ready to let go of summer yet). This blue-toned burgundy shade is definitely going to be a staple for me this season!

YOU GUYS. COVERGIRL is coming out with a collection inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I know this news isn’t 100% new, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting.

Here’s the thing – I’m a total closet nerd. Things like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings & Game of Thrones get my heart beating faster, and I’m unbelievably excited for the next installment of the Star Wars series (provided it’s not an epic fail – but I have faith). So, natch, I was way excited when news of this collab broke out.

The collection won’t be available until October, but COVERGIRL Global Creative Director Pat McGrath has designed six looks inspired by the film, based on The Light Side & Dark Side, which will be released on the COVERGIRL x Star Wars site. The first looks – the Droid & the Stormtrooper – were released today:

  • Droid: featuring a luminous look that reflects the light side in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. A swatch of golden eye shadow across lids and cheekbones sets the tone, with glistening lips punctuating the lustrous palette.
  • Stormtrooper: featuring a strong and graphic look to represent the power from the Dark Side. The eyes dominate with a black winged liner and white contrasts. Lips measure up in a deep, mysterious red.

Are you excited for the COVERGIRL Star Wars: The Force Awakens collection?

Who doesn’t love spending a day on the beach? Warm sun, soft sand and rolling waves make for the perfect spot to relax on a beautiful summer day. I’ve been pretty busy lately but have been able to to get down to the beach a few times.

When spending time at the beach you definitely need to be prepared. I’ve put together some of my beach mag must-haves to help you decide what you need to bring along with you for a day in the sun. What are your beach day essentials?

I’m going to start by saying sun protect is an absolute must when you are spending a day in the sun. By now, I’m sure we all know about the dangers of prolonged sun exposure. Make sure you stock up on sunscreen to make sure your skin is protected during a long day on the beach. Right now, I’m really loving Vichy Capital Soleil Invisible Mist (SPF 50) The spray format makes it easy to hit every part of your body when you don’t have anyone around to help you get those hard to reach places. For the face, I prefer something a bit lighter and non-greasy. Vichy Aqualia Thermal UV Hydrating Treatment (SPF 15) and Skinceuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense (SPF 50) are perfect for this, providing more lightweight facial protection. And of course, you can’t forget about the little ones… Garnier Ombrelle Kids Mineral Lotion (SPF 50+) makes sure their little bodies are safe from the sun – not to mention you can definitely use this on yourself!

Of course, while we like to stay protected from the sun, there’s nothing wrong with giving yourself a bit of a glow. Keep your tan looking great longer with the Jergens Natural Glow Tan Extender. Moisturizing extends the life of a tan, and it even helps to add a bit of colour to your skin – but not enough that you have to worry about staining or streaking! For the face, the Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals Self Tanning Bronzing Minerals is the bomb. Since it is a bronzer, it gives the face an automatically golden look once it’s been buffed on… But the best part is that the powder acts as a self tanner that is activated by your moisturizer or foundation, so a glow develops while you wear it! Of course, now that your beautiful and bronzed, you can perk up your look with a killer nail polish, like the fun Ceramic Glaze polishes pictured above.

Don’t forget about your hair! If you’re going to be splashing around in the pool or in the lake/beach, bring along a leave-in treatment like the Dessange Paris Oleo Miracle Replenishing Oil. Once you get out of the water (and before you jump in if you remember!) apply some throughout your mane to lock in moisture and prevent chlorine from drying your hair or helping colour to fade more quickly. I also love to bring along a salt spray, like the John Frieda Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray (and no, you don’t have to be a blonde to love & use this one!). I spritz some in my hair, scrunch it up and let it air dry for a wavy look without the fuss! Bonus – this one smells like coconuts. Love!

What do you like to throw in your bag for a day at the beach?

Attention Canadian beauty lovers – iconic makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury’s line finally launches in Canada today! I’ve pined over this brand for a while and lost it when I found out a few months ago that it was finally making its way overseas to the Great White North. As of today (June 22), the line is available at Holt Renfrew Bloor St, and will be coming to Holt Renfrew Vancouver the week of July 6th. Don’t want to wait or can’t make it in store? A Canadian version of the e-comm site is now available. Charlotte Tilbury, easily one of the world’s best makeup artists, has created a gorgeous line that brings professional results – I’m absolutely loving the products that I’ve tried so far.

When it comes to makeup, one of the easiest questions to ask ourselves is “who do you want to be today?” Charlotte has 10 iconic looks at the heart of her collection to help make achieving any look easy… And today, I’m really feeling the Vintage Vamp. This Gatsby inspired look is sexy, smoky and has a killer 1920’s feel that I absolutely love. This look does take a little time but the result is stunning – perfect for a night out on the town.

I’ve tried out both the lighter daytime version of this look, which is soft and feminine, and the darker, more sultry nighttime look. Check them both out below and let me know what you think!

This is the daytime version of the look. Colour is light and fresh, making the eyes bright and leaving skin glowing. K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Night Crimson is worn as more of a stain for a lighter finish and a bit of a bitten flush.

The nighttime version of this look bring a lot more drama, with bold, smokey eyes and tons of colour on the lips. I’m so, so in love with this look. What do you think?
