    how i broke out of my makeup routine with a runway look

    When it comes to putting on makeup in the morning, I am a creature of habit and venturing outside the box merely means switching up my lipstick colour. To break me out of my habit, my co-worker Emily suggested I try the Mikhael Kale look that was recently featured at World Mastercard Fashion Week in Toronto.

    the mask you can get away with applying at the office—seriously!

    To be honest, I’ve never really given my neck much thought. It holds up my head, and it’s a nice spot to display the occasional statement necklace or jaunty scarf. Other than that, the ol’neck doesn’t get a lot of attention. OK, any attention.

    my runway ready ‘negative space’ nails

    I’m a simple girl. So like my everyday makeup, I tend to keep my nail looks very minimal. But I have to admit the same old beige and pink can get a little overlooked. Luckily enough, I had the chance to chat with Essie Canada’s Lead Nail Artist Rita Remark backstage at WMCFW (World Mastercard Fashion Week) at David Pecaut Square. Together we created a simple ‘negative space’ nail art look from Matthew Gallagher’s runway show. This nail look is a minimalist’s dream.

    five reasons i can’t get enough of rose water

    Roses are the star ingredient in a lot of beauty products I reach for again and again:rose scented salves, Nuxe’s Micellar Cleanser and of course, good old-fashioned rose water. It’s a timeless hallmark of grannies for a reason – it works.

    no, I haven’t had too much wine! how I calm down facial redness

    I’ve gotten used to people asking me why my face is so red, especially after a jog or more likely, a couple drinks. Besides being unhelpful, I never know how to respond. Ever since a facialist casually told me I might have mild rosacea, I’ve been on a crazed hunt for products that neutralize ruddiness.

    how I dyed my hair purple without bleaching

    I tend to wear a lot of black and neutral outfits during the fall. So what better way to add colour to my look than dying my hair. Although purple was my first choice, I was a little bit afraid to commit to such a bright colour, so I leaned towards the Garnier Color Styler in Bronze. I immediately saw results with the bronze dye. The result from dark hair to bronze was such a subtle transition.

    beauty hack: how i fixed a broken eyeshadow

    At Glow, handling precious cargo in the form of gorgeous eyeshadow palettes and swoon-worthy blushes is a daily occurrence (yup, I love my job). Another common occurrence? Destroying said cargo for the sake of a beautiful picture (case in point: see below photo).

    I tried DIY nail art…and it was harder than I thought

    The first thing I learned when attempting this DIY nail art is that even easy nail art isn’t really easy. I have a newfound respect for all the nail technicians out there who make it look so darn effortless!

    my experiment with gel topcoats

    My nails are usually bare because I am very tough on my manicures and any nail polish I apply myself will undoubtedly chip off in a matter of 24 hours. When Shellac came on the scene, I did a happy jazz hands dance. It was great that my nails didn’t chip for two weeks, but removing the polish was a pain.

    here’s how i’m kicking pimples to the curb

    A couple of weeks ago I woke up with a HUGE blemish on the side of my head. My husband—not wrongly—nicknamed it Mount Vesuvius (and they say romance is dead!). I brushed my hair in front of my face and caked on the concealer, but there was no ignoring the fact that my skin was seriously unhappy. It was clearly time to tackle my pimple problem head on (see what I did there?).

    i got my hair cut at a barbershop—and loved it

    When I was very generously offered a cut by John Frieda Canadian creative consultant Dante Perrone this week, I eagerly accepted the offer. Even though I’m always on top of my colour, my hair was in desperate need of a cut (I’ve been sporting a shaggy grown-out lob for far too long).

    how i get fresh, natural-looking makeup in five minutes or less!

    When I’m in a serious rush in the morning (so, basically every day!), I depend on a handful of products that can do double-duty in five minutes or less—and yes, I timed it!

    how this city girl survived the country (hint: it involved lots of dry shampoo)

    I’m a city gal through and through. From a young age, I loathed camping, and even to this day I shudder at the mention of cottaging. Mosquitoes are in love with me and the washroom situation can be dicey in the wilderness. Normally, there’s no way I would agree to camping, but when an opportunity to test out luxurious cottages and lodges in the Quebec countryside arises a girl can be swayed.

    here’s why I’m in love with lip liner

    My love affair with red lips started a long time ago. Now, I can’t imagine a life where statement lips aren’t part of my every day. There isn’t one red I’m loyal to but I like to stick to matte textures.
