Summer Splurge vs. Steal

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

Summer is here and with it comes sunbathing in your local pool’s “splash zone” and roasting in the stands at the baseball stadium. Will your makeup stand up? Celebrity makeup artist Brett Freedman, shares his top summer tips and beauty products to keep us looking our best in the summer heat.

    Summerize your favourite foundation with gel bronzer:


    Splurge: Clinique Non-Streak Bronzer ($18.50, Sears Canada).
    Steal: Bonne Bell Gel Bronze ($6.49, Shoppers Drug Mart).
    - Freedman has used this tip on Jessica Biel. (more…)

    Summer Lovin’

    Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

    Nars CosmeticsThough the summer is almost over, we just cannot let go of two of our most cherished summer beauty basics. NARS Portobello (matte ecru and soft matte mushroom) eye shadow and Supervixen (sheer sparkling mauve) lip gloss have treated us like a princess from the moment they descended into our makeup bag and we still love them. These sultry neutrals are our daily staples and are perfect for day or evening. The great news is that they are still available and will continue to be part of the NARS family.

    We are just not ready to move into the darker, more mysterious colours of fall. Are you? Fight fall. Stay summerlicious.

    Available at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom and Sephora

    NARS Shanghai Lily

    Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

    NARS Spring 2008 Collection embraces subtle pearl and golden champagnes for eyes while lips are vibrant with shades of burnt sienna, rose and poppy. Shanghai Lily is not for the woman who wants to blend into the background but for the one who wants to be seen this Spring.
    Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow (metallic rose mist and golden champagne)
    Abyssinia Single Eyeshadow (delicate pearl sheen)

    The softness of these shadows is just breathtaking.

    Success Lipstick (burnt sienna)
    Manhunt Lipstick (sheer poppy red)
    Dolce Vita Lip Gloss (dusty rose)
    Greek Holiday Lip Gloss (sparkling pink sand)
    Belle de Jour Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (nude beige)

    I am excited to see bold lips for Spring – I’m not a fan of the nude lip of me.

    Due to the success of classics Dolce Vita and Belle de Jour, NARS have reinvented these colours in new textures; the dusty rose hue of Dolce Vita is given a high shine brilliance in a gloss formulation and Belle de Jour’s nude beige is modernized in a seamless matte texture.

    Orgasm The Multiple (peachy pink with shimmer)

    I was so looking forward to trying this item as Orgasm is my fav blush colour…but a friend begged for my sample and I am too nice so gave it to her. How silly was I?

    NARS Siren Song

    Monday, December 10th, 2007

    The NARS Holiday Collection is truly stunning with rich shades of violet, plum, and gold for eyes, golden apricot for cheeks, and gleaming crimson tones for lips. Shimmering, ruby nails complete this collection – there really is a little something for everyone.

    Violetta Duo Eyeshadow (smoky lavender/soft metallic violet)
    Balthazar Duo Eyeshadow (maize/saffron)
    Cheyenne Duo Eyeshadow (metallic sienna/gothic plum)
    Night Rider Single Eyeshadow (soft plum with silver glitter)
    Night Snow Single Eyeshadow (sheer white with silver glitter)

    I think the Violetta Duo can carry me through into Spring quite nicely.

    Luster Blush (sheer golden apricot)

    Orgasm will always been my No. 1 favourite blush colour, but this could definitely be my second.

    Viridiana Lipstick (rich burgundy)
    Rose Gitane Lip Gloss (sheer sangria)
    Bad Education Lip Gloss (sheer crimson red)

    I am not good with a solid, deep colour so these sheer glosses are absolutely perfect!

    Saratoga Nail Polish (ruby red with shimmer)

    I think I am going to have to grab a bottle of this and paint my toes for my Florida vacation.
