STILA COSMETICS  @stilagirlcanada 💋💓 A post shared by Lifestyle • Fashion • Beauty (@humjk) on Dec 13, 2017 at 9:21am PST So many beautiful sets and the best part is that you can try all the mini versions of your favourite products.

What Happens During Brunch With Bloggers

During my early years as a blogger, I wondered what it would be like to sit among other like-minded individuals in the blogging world. So here I am, this year, with lots of breakfast, lunch/brunch and dinners with other bloggers and I gotta say, what an awesome experience! Some bloggers are very different in person from what I actually thought they’d be like according to their posts and online voice. And others, like the below crew, are exactly the same offline as they present themselves online. When they’re exactly the same, I have to admit I get such a feel-good feeling. It’s wonderful to see that realness and authenticity come to life. So here’s what happens during brunch with bloggers: Bloggers – Left to right: YesMissy – Cat Forsley – Dianas Healthy Living – Maggie Adhami – ME – Shoetease What Happens During Brunch With Bloggers Last month I met up with…

Bite Beauty #LIPLABxBITE Experience in Toronto [BEAUTY]

Last night I had the pleasure of being Cat’s guest to an amazing Bite Beauty #LIPLABxBITE experience! The Toronto Bite Beauty lab is located on Queen Street at 678 Queen St W. Bite Beauty was founded by Susanne Langmuir. She saw a void in the beauty industry and got busy with kitchen chemistry. Almost all of the coolest companies started off in their homes, right? The store front on the main level is really clean and all about lips! Of course. Bite Beauty #LIPLABxBITE Experience in Toronto Some background information about Bite Beauty and why it’s different from other brands: – Their tag line “natural, age-defying beauty for lips that is good enough to eat!” -Lip products made solely from all-natural, food-grade ingredients. – Lip labs where you can custom-make your own lipstick – The first Lip Lab was in Manhattan [Tweet “”You are what you eat.

To Give Is Beautiful – Shoppers Drug Mart – beautyBOUTIQUE [EVENTS]

It’s that time of the year when to give is beautiful. This weekend I had the pleasure of attending a holiday event at Vaughan Mills shopping center as a Fragrance expert. I took people who attended (open to public) through a fragrance experience that peaked all of their senses! All fragrances I spoke about are available at Shoppers Drug Mart’s beauty boutiques.  In case you missed this event, don’t worry! The next one is happening at the Eaton Center, Dec 2nd and 3rd from mall opening to close hours.

Then directed to the fragrance station. Here I asked people what fragrances they were most drawn too. Based on their answer that gave me an idea of which ones…

Velour Lashes REVIEW + Live in Lashes EVENT [BEAUTY]

Velour Lashes is a Toronto based beauty brand that makes (in my opinion) the best luxury faux lashes! I had the pleasure of attending their very first pop up shop at the Eaton Center via Sephora. This pop up’s main goal was to “inspire lash confidence”. It did the trick for me, that’s for sure. A pro at applying falsies on others but terrible at doing my own. Finally a product I’m confident in applying to myself. Naturally I have long eyelashes and with mascara I can get them even longer and thicker. But the look I get with falsies doesn’t compare. You can see the difference in my pictures especially when I go full glam on my eyes.  Velour Lashes REVIEW + Live in Lashes EVENT [BEAUTY] At the event, we were lucky to watch a make-up demo done by celebrity make-up artist Patrick Ta. He walked us through a…

Shoppers Drug Mart – Be Bold with Beauty and Joyce Bonelli

On August 9th I had the pleasure of meeting some amazing people in the beauty and photography industry. Shoppers Drug Marts Beauty Boutiques are doing a special campaign called Be Bold with Beauty from Aug 12th – Sept 8th. This campaign welcomes customers into Beauty Boutiques to choose their new bold make-up look, consult with the beauticians and learn about the products being used to create the new look. A beauty boutique make-up artist did the metallic look on me. Definitely something new for me. I usually go really dark on eyeliner and mascara. This look was light on the eyes, but popped with metallic eye shadow and more bold on the lips and cheeks. Especially for to my skin tone.

Hard Candy Make-Up Summer Collection 2017 [BEAUTY]

This is my first time trying Hard Candy make-up. Hard Candy products are sold exclusively at Wal-Mart and Walmart.ca. I shop at Wal-Mart at least once a week, if not more. Whenever I’m out of any of my make-up I first check Wal-Mart to see what they have that can replace my product. All of these products are reasonably priced. Last I checked at Wal-Mart all of these products seem to be priced at under $10. Keep an eye out next time you’re at Wal-Mart for the below Hard Candy Summer 2017 collection: Hard Candy Sheer Envy Color Correct Perfecting Powder  This powder helps those with redness, dull skin and any other colour correcting concerns. I don’t have any redness concerns ever since my acne cleared up years ago. It’s a natural brightener due to the orange/yellow tones in this powder. I’ve used it after foundation all over my face…
