Beauty Nine to Five - Beauty Jobs in Canada

As we head into the second month of 2018, it’s safe to say that this year is going to be filled with some incredible beauty trends. From the runways and Instagram to the red carpets at the biggest award shows, it appears that gold highlighter, lip stains, and glitter are going to be your must-have beauty items for 2018. Read on to see what other trends you’ll definitely be seeing a lot of.


The Gold Digger
We got the hint back in September when trendsetter Rihanna dropped her gorgeous Fenty Beauty collection, that gold makeup was going to quickly become all the rage. Following the drop of her iconic gold highlighter in ‘Trophy Wife’, other brands like Too Faced and Stila were quick to drop items that will help you shine all year around.

High Impact Lip Stain
Forget about matte liquid lipstick, this year is all about lip stains. One to keep your eyes peeled for is YSL’s Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain, as it’s incredibly lightweight yet provides a high-impact colour that will last for hours. 

Flawless Complexion
Contouring is so 2017, while 2018 is all about flawless, glowing skin. To reach the perfect look, try a water-based foundation, as it will help keep your skin hydrated, while still being able to build coverage the way you like it. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea is a must-have, as it’s full of great ingredients and has a great colour range.

Embrace Your Curls
Say goodbye to sleek, straight hair, we want waves! 2018 is all about rocking natural-inspired curls, and if you are more of a straight-haired gal, then you’re going to want to try Conair’s X-Large You Curl Wand to achieve perfect, effortlessly natural-looking waves. 

We Want Glitter
Remember when we talked about glitter everywhere during the holiday season? Well, it’s here to stay in 2018, especially on the eyes. From bold glittery lids to a delicate pop of shimmer along your lower lashline, a liquid glitter eyeshadow will be your best friend this year. We’re loving Stila’s Glitter Glow Liquid Eyeshadow as it small wand provides great control and precise application.

Cosmetician Jobs – No More Reapplying Your Lipstick At Work

A good lipstick can complete any look but who has time to reapply while they’re at work? Here are some long lasting products that’ll give you a lasting pout – reapplying will hardly be needed.

In order to have a long lasting lip, you should try…


A Matte Lipstick

MAC Matte Lipstick in Brave Red, $19 CAD, Mac

A matte lipstick has more of a dry texture and it gives one a full coverage. Our pick is MAC’s matte lipstick in Brave Red. It’s a great universal colour for all skin tones and glides on beautifully upon application. Not to mention it smells great!


A Liquid Lipstick

Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in 01 Always Red, $16 CAD, Sephora

A liquid lipstick may look like a gloss but it’s really not. Using a gloss applicator, one easily glides on the liquid lipstick. When it dries, it’s matte. Try the Sephora Cream Lip Stain in, 01 Always Red, for a smudge proof, sophisticated look.  This gives double the coverage, it’s more matte and it has an insane longevity.


A Glossy Lip Stain

YSL Glossy Stain in 6 Camel Croisiere, $38 CAD, Sephora

If you’re looking for something that’s comfortable to wear, lasts just as long put still has a shine try YSL’s Glossy Lip Stain. There really is nothing like it. The coverage is pretty creamy but not too sheer. The gloss has a unique applicator that hugs your lips beautifully and the formula is not sticky!

Beauty Jobs – Makeout-Proof Lipsticks

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

There is romance in the air! Valentine’s Day is coming, and whether you have a beau or not, I’m sure you still have smooching on the brain. While lipstick gives you a sexy date night look, chances are he doesn’t want to end up wearing it, too (or want to wait around while you run to reapply throughout the night). So before you pucker up this Valentine’s Day, grab one of these long lasting lipsticks to power you through dinner, drinks, and your steamy make-out session. Your date will think you look hot, and he won’t have to worry about borrowing your makeup remover at the end of the night.

1. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, $30, available in Vancouver at The Bay Downtown, 674 Granville St. 604-681-6211. This combo lipstick/lip pencil is so easy to apply, even a toddler could use it (seriously, it’s like a giant crayon). Available in 13 shades from pale pink to deep aubergine, it’s easy to find a colour you love that will last for hours.

2. MAC Pro Longwear Lip Crème, $21, available in Vancouver at MAC Robson, 908 Robson St. 604-682-6588. I’ve been obsessed with these longwearing lipsticks from MAC since they launched a couple years ago. Best applied with a lip brush for precise placement, once it sets it isn’t going anywhere. It’s the most moisturizing longwear lipstick I’ve come across.

3. Kat von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick, $23, available at Sephora. Being a tattoo artist must give someone a secret knowledge on permanent body decoration because Kat von D created one serious long-lasting lip colour! I’m a particular fan of the brick red shade ‘Outlaw,’ a perfect choice for a vampy matte lip on Valentine’s Day.

4. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick, $29, available at Sephora. This is my newest lipstick love, and it looks like we’re going to have a long term relationship. It is highly pigmented, dries to a gorgeous matte finish, and feels satiny smooth on your lips. I especially love the hot pink ‘Fiore’ shade.

5. CoverGirl Outlast Lip Stain, $9, available at London Drugs. If you’re going for a more natural look, this CoverGirl lip stain offers a punch of colour without the thick and opaque qualities of traditional lipstick. The pen-style applicator makes it easy to apply, and the price tag isn’t too bad, either.

6. Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lip Lift, $40, available at Sephora. Okay, I know this isn’t technically a lipstick, but if have a signature shade that needs a little help committing to your lips, you need this product. It’s the ultimate lip primer that will lock in your colour and prevent bleeding, feathering, and lipstick transfer. I know it’s pricey, but I promise it’s worth the investment.
