    the orange-red lipstick that changed my mind about orange-red lipsticks

    Understatement alert: I have A LOT of red lipsticks in my collection, which means I probably don’t need another one in the mix. However, I realized recently that all my red lippies fall into the blue-red category. I’ve always gravitated toward cooler reds because I feel like they’re more flattering to my pinkish complexion, plus they make my teeth look whiter (which is never a bad thing, right?).

    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.

    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 things I learned from working at a beauty magazine

    Working at a beauty mag isn’t just a dream job, it’s the best job. And I’m not trying to rub it in – honestly. I’m just really grateful that as a health editor I get to research and learn about the latest science behind products, workouts and nutrition. But working at Glow has also exposed me to makeup, skin care and the beauty industry too.

    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.

    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).

    the dior-approved concealer that made me a concealer convert

    Confession: I rarely use concealer. When I tell fellow beauty editors this, the reaction is a mix of aghast expressions and gaping mouths, as if I’ve committed a cardinal sin. And so, I’ve been making a concentrated effort to use one, if only to see if I’ve really been missing out. Enter Dior’s new Backstage Pros Fix It.

    here's how I keep my makeup brushes squeaky clean

    It’s truth time: With early lectures, assignments, going to the gym, work and sleep, I sometimes forget to clean my makeup brushes. Like everyone else, I use my make up brushes every single day.

    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.

    why i hopped on the dark lip bandwagon

    How much do I love black cherry lipsticks? Let me count the ways. Since dark lips hit the scene years ago it’s always been a beauty trend that was super-intimidating to me.
