Beauty Jobs – A Look Back at the Best Beauty of 2017

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Beauty Nine to Five - Beauty Jobs in Canada

We may have already said goodbye to 2017, but we definitley haven’t taken the time to reflect on our beauty choices from the past year. Between new launches and partnerships, 2017 was an explosion of amazing products new and old. While we know how different everyone’s beauty tastes can be, the claims for the best of the year usually come as a common agreement. In honour of the year that’s past, we’ve narrowed down our list of the best of the best beauty finds of 2017. 

Lipstick
We went Canadian with the lips category and chose Toronto-based Bite Beauty. In 2017, Bite Beauty launched its first liquid lipstick formula that is nothing short of amazing. It’s highly pigmented, very nourishing, and comes in 20 unique shades – making it a must-have for all lipstick lovers.

Blush
When it comes to blush, we had to go with Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Blush Collection. This beautiful collection gives off a subtle highlight, giving the cheeks a beautiful glow without looking too heavy. It’s a buildable product, so it’s super easy to work with.

Bronzer
The perfect combination of colour and structure, Physicians Formula bronzers are long-lasting giving you a subtle tan all year around. Physicians Formula is known for its flattering shades that work with every skin tone.

Highlighter
Drugstore brands are upping their game when it comes to quality products, and we are happy to say that Milani stole our hearts with its Strobelight Glow Powders. This collection is not only $10, but it’s available in seven different shades that you can blend together to create the ultimate glow.

Eyeshadow
Regardless if it’s a single or palette format, Color Pop stole the show when it came to eyeshadows in 2017. Color Pop’s Super Shock Shadows feature a creamy, long-lasting formula giving you an amazing payoff that will turn any boring look into a glam look in an instant.

Liquid Eyeliner
For the perfect winged liner, you need a liner that’s rich in colour and smudge-proof. Stila not only makes one of the best liquid eyeliners with the finest tip for precision on the market but its liquid liners are 100%  cry proof. The Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner comes in a variety of colours from the traditional black to a cool white.

Mascara
When it comes to head-turning lashes, we’ve only got eyes for L’Oreal’s Voluminous Lash Paradise. If the incredible price tag wasn’t enough to have us using it time and time again, the fact that one coat leaves us with ultra voluptuous volume and length certainly does.

Beauty Jobs – 5 Cruelty Free Brands to Know Now

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Beauty Nine to Five - Beauty Jobs in Canada

In today’s cosmetics landscape, brands don’t have to strive to work the best, but they also have to be the best for the environment and the consumers that use them. Which is why we’re so happy to see that more and more brands are banning animal testing before putting their products into the market, which is why we wanted to share five cool traditional brands that are shaking up the cruelty-free beauty industry.

 

Cruelty-free means: A product and its ingredients weren’t tested on animals. PETA has a list of companies and brands that pledge to never to sell in China since the requirement to sell cosmetics in this country requires that they are tested on animals in order to have their products available in the Chinese market. You can check the list here.

 

If you want to know if your favourite brand is cruelty-free, keep reading…

E.L.F Cosmetics
We got super excited when we found out that one of our favourite drugstore brands is cruelty-free. E.L.F has great and affordable makeup brushes, blushes and eye shadows, the best part, great quality for a small price. We love the baked Highlighter, as it’s the perfect way to get a serious glow during winter. 

Josie Maran
Created by a supermodel that was looking to create a cosmetic line that actually does some good, Josie Maran is a pioneer when comes to Argan Oil. She is not only the queen of incorporating Argan Oil into all of her products but her brand 100% against animal testing. Josie’s must try: Whipped Mud Mask – it’s a scent-free product that work for every skin type.

Charlotte Tilbury
In the high-end department, we have the amazing celebrity makeup artist that wanted your go-to brand to be both luxurious and good for the environment at the same time. Not to mention Charlotte is against using animals as test components.  Tilbury’s Magic Cream is the celebrity secret, but we believe that the Matte Revolution lipstick will steal your heart; it has a smooth application and is long-lasting.

Cake Beauty
This Toronto-based brand does a great job at being 100% cruelty-free and develops the most delicious scented creams. They are manufactured in Canada and UK and they have cute packaging. The everything balm will be your best friend during winter, is a life savour for your lips, skin, elbows and even lashes!

Yes To Tomatoes
This brand has a great mission of creating great products without compromising on ingredients. Not to mention the packaging is made of recycled material and like all the products on our list, this brand does not test on animals. It’s a natural line made with ingredients that we can actually pronounce (score!) and can be found in your kitchen. The detoxifying charcoal mud mask should be on your list of must-have items.

Beauty Jobs – Holiday Winter Glitter

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

Beauty Nine to Five - Beauty Jobs in Canada

The holiday Season is the perfect excuse to wear glitter from day to night without people look at you like you’re crazy. All the glitterized products currently available can be a tad overwhelming, not to mention it’s hard to decide which part of your look to add some sparkle too. To help you add some sparkle to your beauty regiment this winter, we’ve rounded up our favourite glittery beauty items available right now.

For the Hair
Yes, we started our list with something a little less conventional. Our hair deserves to be the life of the party, and for that, IGK created the most fun hairspray to rock at all your winter parties. The Preparty Hair Strobing Glitter Spray will make your hair sparkle everywhere you go this winter, not to mention it will also come in handy this festival season.

For All Over
Loose glitter has never been more in than now! It’s a versatile product that you can use anywhere, from your eyes, shoulders, chest to your hair! Too Faced has created this limited edition glitter set, perfectly called ‘Tis season to sparkle will have you ready to sparkle everywhere you go.

 

For the Eyes
Bored with your predictable old black eyeliner? The holidays are the perfect time to try different liner looks. Winged liner always makes a basic makeup look stand out, so why not swap black for a sparkly colourful liner instead? NYX has an incredible lineup of glittery liners that are not only budget-friendly but also available in a wide variety of colours so you can make your winged liner everything but traditional.

For the Lips
We definitely couldn’t forget about the lips! We talked about glittery lipglosses in a previous post, but we didn’t fully explore how glitter lipstick could extend through the holidays. Amplify your lip game this winter by using Ciaté London’s Glitter Flip, which comes in a variety of colours from delicate pink to bold green.

 

For the Legs
If you’re planning on rocking an LBD this winter, your legs and arms deserve some love. Kopari is a cool, all natural brand that has this incredible coconut body glow that will not only hydrate your skin but also give it a much-needed glow during the dry winter months.

Beauty Jobs – Winter Lip Care 101

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Beauty Nine to Five - Beauty Jobs in Canada

We literally blinked and winter was practically here. And once the cold weather hits, one of the first parts of our body that suffers is our lips. Since the skin is super thin and sensitive, we have to make sure to give our lips the TLC it needs.  Between lip liners and lipsticks, here is how you can keep your lips ready for kisses under the mistletoe.

Lip Scrubs
Like any other part of your body, your lips have to be scrubbed once in a while. If you’re too lazy to remember this extra step in your makeup routine, leave the little container in the shower to give your lips a good scrub once a week. One of the most popular lip scrubs is from Lush, as it makes your lips super soft and actually tastes amazing! To get into Christmas mood, try the Santa Baby.

Lip Care
We love to use face masks and eye patches correct? Did you know that our lips have a designated product that works the same way? That’s right, lip patches are getting very popular for lip care. The My Collagen Hydrogel Lip Patch works as a collagen enhancer that helps soften and refresh the lips for lipstick application.

Lip Hydration
Last but definitely not least, this step is super important. Before applying your favourite lipstick, make sure to hydrate your lips so your festive red lipstick won’t look cracked. The Canadian brand Bite Beauty is getting everyone’s attention with the agave lip mask, which is similar to a balm and nourishes the lips leaving a perfect surface for lipstick application. The best part is it’s made with edible ingredients and keeps your lips healthy year-round.

Lip Hydrater
This salve is the thickest formula on our list and it’s perfect for piling on underneath and over lipstick to soften and hydrate chapped lips.  Plus it comes in a number of shades if you’re looking to add some colour to your lips.

Lip Saver
For when your lips are painfully chapped, this salve is a slightly thicker formula that hydrates and soothes the lips while still giving a glossy finish.

Do you have a favourite remedy for winter-ready lips? Let us know commenting below!

In the sea of makeup brands available today, have you ever stopped and thought about the brands that are right under your nose? Yes, Canada is not only amazing when it comes to producing great musicians and Maple Syrup, our beautiful country is actually dominating the beauty industry. From the east to the west coast, here are five Canadian brands that you need to add to your beauty regiment ASAP. 

Harlow Skin Co.
This Vancouver-based company is getting a lot of attention lately and for all the right reasons. Known for its cool, basic products that not only smell amazing, but they have a great price tag considering each product is handmade with organic and cruelty-free ingredients. Between the collection’soils, candles, and beauty balms, the must-try product is definitely the Cleanse + Exfoliate Face Mask.

Lucia
If you’re the home spa kind of girl, this brand is definitely for you. Lucia is a Canadian brand that produces a wide variety of soaps, candles and room sprays that are perfect for your next relaxing day in the tub. Made with a mix of flowers, fruits, and herbs, Lucia scents are unique, making them the perfect host gift. We recommend checking out the Mandarin & Tomato flower soap. 

Cake Beauty
We all have that one indulging smell that we never forget – and that’s what Cake Beauty is all about.  This proudly Canadian drugstore brand will make your skincare routine more fun. Between, scrubs, balms, and body creams there’s a scent for everybody – and we guarantee you’re going to want to eat these products. We recommend trying the new Triple Citrus Blend Body Butter Cream, which will remind you of warm summer days.

Nudestix
The Toronto-based brand proves that it’s never too late to create a business. This family-run business is owned by two sisters and their mother, and they’re known for creating incredible stick format makeup. The brand believes that makeup shouldn’t be complicated, it should be practical, which is why everything is in stick form. The must-try item is definitely the new addition to the lineup, the Nudes All Over Face Color Glow. 

Rocky Mountain Soap Co.
This  Alberta company is getting a lot of attention due to the fact that all its products are made with ingredients that you can find in your fridge. The brand not only has an amazing story and set of values behind it, each of the products smells absolutely amazing. The must-try item is definitely the face serum.

Beauty Jobs – Trend Alert: Technicolor Hair

Monday, October 16th, 2017

Beauty Nine to Five - Beauty Jobs in Canada

Forget the days of traditional hair colours, technicolour hair is here to stay. In the past year, pastel hair shades have received a lot of love from fashionistas and influencers, but it’s a look that will work for every girl who loves to play with her look. If colouring your hair on your own makes you nervous, go to a professional and talk to a stylist about temporary and washable options that you can play with for the first time, but if you are ready to try it at home here are some cool brands that will help you explore this colourful world.

Arctic Fox
Favourite of Youtubers like Tasha Leelyn and Hailie Barber, Arctic fox is an American brand that is cruelty-free and vegan. It’s easy to use, won’t damage your hair and is semi-permanent, meaning it will last for a while will completely fade after a month or two. The brand has an amazing cause behind it, it’s a dye for a cause, as the brand donates proceeds to help animal protection institutions.

Clairol Color Crave
This is the easiest semipermanent colour to use of them all. The tube comes with an applicator, so it won’t stain your hands and comes out after one wash. It’s perfect for newbies that want to experiment with colours without any drastic change.

L’Oreal Colorista
L’Oreal was one of the first drugstore brands to bring colourful hues from the salon and to your home.
This baby is semi-permanent, comes out within a couple of washes and very user-friendly so you give yourself some fun highlights or try colouring your entire head. The product works better for light coloured hair such as blonde and gray, but if you have highlights in your hair that will also take the pastel hues.

 

Lime Crime Unicorn Hair
This brand was known for dominating the makeup game and it has recently transitioned into the hair game. Lime Crime has semi-permanent, easy to apply colours that are perfect for the brand fanatics. It claims to fade gracefully and it’s also vegan, so if you’re looking for something durable, this is your pick. Pro tip: To keep the colour vibrant for longer, wash your hair with a baby shampoo and rinse with cold water. 

Splat Hair Chalk
If you want to play without compromising your original hair colour, hair chalk is for you. All you need to is rub the chalk against your hair and you’ll be left with playful colour that will wash out immediately.

Beauty Jobs – Beauty Hacks You Need to Try

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

Beauty Nine to Five - Beauty Jobs in Canada

During the colder months, we often get lazy when it comes to getting ready to go out. But this is actually the best time to test out some beauty hacks at home for your makeup, hair, nails and skin. If you have yet to jump on the beauty hack train, we’ve rounded up our favourite hacks that you need to try this fall and winter.

Contour
Have you attempted contouring yet? If not, no problem. A great trick is to use is, believe it or not, a chopstick! Just place the chopstick in the center of your nose line as a guide and apply the contour cream or bronzer from the nose bone to the tip, after you finish, remove the chopstick and start to blend. This hack will give you a great guideline for starters.

Black Heads
If you are wondering if those black masks that went viral on social media actually work, we have a treatment you can actually DIY pretty quick. All you need is a little bit of non-toxic glue and an activated charcoal capsule (available at any natural food store). Then simply mix one capsule with one tablespoon of nontoxic glue and it’s ready for application. Finally, add one to two drops of your favourite hydrating face oil to the mix to treat your face at the same time. Apply the mix in the desired areas and wait 20 to 30 minutes and peel it off. You’ll be left with skin that’s silky smooth and blackhead-free.


Dry Hair Ends
This hack claims to restore your split ends and also help treat those with chemically damaged hair. In a bowl mix 1 ½ tablespoon of honey and olive oil and apply the mixture to the ends of your hair. It will get a bit greasy, but let it stay overnight. Wash it off in the morning; you’ll notice almost immediately that your ends are less dry. Repeat the process every 15 days; you’ll notice a great improvement, especially if you are not ready to get your dead ends trimmed.

Soft Lips
Want to do your own lip scrub to keep your lips smooth for your fave liquid lipsticks? This one is easy and takes just five minutes. Mix together 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and 1 teaspoon honey in a bowl and transfer it to a small container with a lid and voila! Your scrub is ready to use. Keep the mix sealed away from the heat and the mix will last for at least two months.

Beauty Jobs – 5 Beauty Brands You Need On Your Radar

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Beauty Nine to Five - Beauty Jobs in Canada

If one thing’s for certain, good things should always be shared, especially when it comes to the beauty industry. Because we understand how overwhelming the beauty industry can be with new brands popping up every other week, making it hard to keep up with all the latest beauty trends. Not to mention all the new brands. While we all have our favorite and trusted brands that we love, the magic of the beauty world is definitely discovering new brands to add to our beauty arsenals. Want to try some new brands but don’t know where to begin? We’ve shared some of our latest discoveries and their best products to try.

Fenty Beauty
Let’s start with the most obvious one. If you haven’t been living under a rock these past few weeks, then you’ve absolutely heard that Rihanna launched her own beauty collection sold exclusively at Sephora. It’s honestly surprising that the images from the collection didn’t leak before the big reveal, especially considering the Fenty buzz that started a few months ago when the singer announced the new collection on social media. The big reveal was that the collection comes in a range of 40 shades of foundations and the must-try product is easily the golden tone highlighter in Trophy Wife.

Glossier
You might remember Emily Weiss from her days on The Hills, but following the show, she quickly made climbed the ranks as a beauty blogger with her blog Into The Gloss, which launched as a mega brand in 2014. Since launching, Glossier has gone viral and made all the beauty junkies fall in love with the cool skincare collection that features clean products in user-friendly packaging.  The must-try product is definitely the Milky Jelly Cleanser.

Kokie Cosmetics
This line was surprisingly created by Wallmart and has seriously stepped up the drugstore beauty game. The chain has created a full collection of affordable makeup that works incredibly well. Unfortunately, it’s not available in Canada yet but if you have a trip set to the US anytime soon, it’s definitely worth checking out. We recommend trying the Volume and Length Mascara.

RMS Beauty
Okay, RMS isn’t necessarily a new brand but it’s new to Sephora. This natural beauty brand was first sold at Detox Market only as a Canadian brand from Vancouver. The founder discovered she had health issues caused by some components found in makeup products, and then she had the idea of creating an organic brand that does not contain any toxic components and was a huge success among Hollywood stars. The must-try product is the Living Luminizer.

Blinking Beaute
For the ladies that love rocking dramatic looks, no look is complete without beautiful lashes. This is exactly what Blinking Beaute had in mind when they created beautiful falsies that go from day to night. We know that lashes aren’t something we wear every day, but certainly, they give your look the drama it needs. We recommend trying the Premier Silk Collection Ingénue.
