The Secret to Kylie Jenner’s lips

Get kylie jenners lips

 

The youngest member of the Kardashian clan has been making quite a name for herself in the beauty world, namely for the transformation her lips have made over the past year.

 

So many of you (myself included) have been trying to recreate her look with lipliner & lipstick (you might remember my post on how to find the perfect Kylie Jenner lipstick) and while that may help you come close to the look it still won’t give you those full lips that up until now we all thought were lip injections. Turns out it’s not injections that made her lips that plump, it’s actually all natural. How did she do it?

 

She used a suctioning device to draw blood to her lips to make them appear larger. Don’t believe me? Watch the video below..

 

 

What do you think, would you try it? If you want to give it a try, I found a less costly version of the product Franceska uses right here.

The Body Shop Dose of Glow event

 

Last week I was invited to The Body Shop in Toronto for their Dose of Glow event to preview their Spring 2015 collection. It was a ton of fun! It was a private event so they closed the store on Queen Street to the public and had a pretty fancy setup going on inside :)

They had some yummy treats but my fave was the fresh, organic juice bar they had going on. I had the Glow juice which had Mango, Strawberry & Orange. Delicious!

 

The Body Shop Queen Street

 

For those of you that aren’t too familiar with the Body Shop, I know most of you would probably think of it as more of they type of store you would go to for body creams and stuff like that, but their makeup collection is reaolly good so give it a try when you get a chance.

 

The Body Shop Makeup collection

 

Ok onto the Body Shop spring 2015 collection…The thing I’m most excited about? The Fuji Green tea collection. Green Tea is an antioxidant and they actually sourced theirs from Mount Fuji in Japan. It’s pretty cool because women in Japan are known to use Green Tea directly on their skin to moisturize and tighten pores. The collection is in stores now.

The other collection that was super exciting was the Mother’s Day collection. The moisturizers & eye cream are perfect for mom’s because of their heavy Vitamin E concentration and the set which comes with a cute tote is only $30. That will be available as of April 27th so if you’re looking for Mother’s Day ideas, check it out.

What’s your fav item from the Body Shop? I’m super into the Coconut Body Butter right now. Smells like vacation in a tub :)

On the last post I promised to share our interview with one of the most iconic people in Canadian fashion, the Canadian version of Anna Wintour, Jeanne Beker. Jeanne hosted Fashion Television for 27 years and really blazed the trail when it comes to women working in media in this country. Total hustler and complete inspiration.

 

That’s why it was so exciting when we got to interview Jeanne backstage at Toronto Fashion Week. We were there for Pink Tartan (amazing show). If you want to see our interview with designer Kimberly Newport-Mimran and her hubby and future Dragon’s Den member(!!!!!) click here.

los angeles fashion week 2015

 

This past week has been pretty busy with events as it’s LA Fashion Week! It’s also my last week in California as I’ll be heading back home soon.

 

I ran into my friend Sarah Shahryar, an Afghan pop star and TV host from Orange County and just super sweet and so fab.

LA  Fashion Week is held in a few different locations, all of which are close to downtown LA and the Staples Center. The Vilorija show which is in these pictures was held at Maker City LA. Maker City is great as they really support a lot of emerging designers in the LA Fashion scene.

I totally loved the rompers and shorts in this show, super cute.

Pretty cell phone case

 

I had to share my favorite new accesory, my pretty cell phone case! It’s no secret that I am obsessed with anything Chanel inspired and as soon as I saw this Chanel cell phone case by Park Avenue Accessories I had to have it!

 

Chanel cell phone case

 

The great thing about this case is that it has compartments for everything you would need for a night out. A slot for your ID, Credit cards, 2 lip gloss holders. It also comes with a cute chain that turns it into a wristlet so you don’t have to carry it.

 

Girls cell phone case

 

It comes in a few different colors, I just wanted to go for the classic white & gold- or is it really blue & black? ;P

Marsala eyeshadow ideas

 

The other day I was showing you guys some ideas on products that work well with the Pantone color of the year Marsala and I promised you Marsala eyeshadow looks.

 

Well here it is! I put together a little chart on eyeshadow color combinations to use with Marsala. Below the chart you’ll find out where to place each color.

 

marsala eyeshadow combination ideas

1. Place Ricepaper on the lid + Bronze in the crease for definition.

2. Apply Amber Lights to the lid + Coppering in the crease + Folie to the outer corner for a smokey affect.

3. Smudge Twinks around the upper & lower lash line + put Cranberry on the rest of the lid and blend softly into the crease.

4. Apply Brun to the inner & outer lid + Mythology on the center of the lid + Brun slightly in the crease

5. Apply Club on the eyelid (use a dark base underneath like MAC Blacktrack Fluidline for a more dramatic affect) + place Embark in the crease.

 

What are your fav combos to wear with Marsala?
