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.

Montreal Beauty Jobs – Naturally Beautiful

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

With the environment being such a hot topic these days, the demand for natural and organic products is definitely on the rise – especially when it comes to beauty. With statistics indicating that the average woman consumes pounds of lipstick in her lifetime, many makeup mavens are starting to re-evaluate their product purchases and opting for more ‘green’ versions of their favourite beauty must-haves. Recognizing this trend, several brands are jumping on the eco-friendly bandwagon, launching products with fewer chemicals, more natural ingredients, and less packaging. Here are some of our favourite natural products that are sure to please both the beauty junkie and environmentalist within!

1. Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm, $8, available at Shoppers Drug Mart
These smooth tinted balms are 100% natural, providing lips with a hint of sheer colour, soft flavour and moisturizing and nourishing benefits.

 

2. Belmondo The Rain Face Cleanser, $33, available at Anthropologie
A mega-fan of Canadian-made Belmondo skincare, this organic face cleanser is my new best friend! It helps to deep clean pores, soothes and calms the skin and has a light lavender and rose scent (ahhh…). Free of alcohol, GMO’s, petroleum-based ingredients, parabens, and synthetic fragrance, skin is left radiant, smooth and refreshed!

3. Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Tinted Moisturizer, $18, available at Shoppers Drug Mart
This lightweight tinted moisturizer is of 100% natural origin and formulated with 80% certified organic ingredients, including jojoba seed, sunflower seed and avocado oils and Shea butter which add mega moisture to skin. The formula is hydrating and evens out skin tone with sheer and natural coverage. I especially love the SPF 15 protection – added bonus!

4. Korres Lip Butter, $12, available at Sephora
I’m a little bit (okay, a lot) obsessed with this Lip Butter by Korres (Mango is my fave!). Lips love this rich butter, formulated with natural oils and extracts that condition and moisturize to the max. Shea butter and rice wax provide lasting hydration and softness, leaving lips kissably soft!

5. LUSH Emotional Brilliance Translucent Face Powder, $19
Another favourite of mine, Lush Cosmetics is a brand dedicated to inventing fresh handmade products with little or no preservatives or packaging – a major plus in my books! Their newly-launched Emotional Brilliance Translucent face Powder creates a shine-free finish and evens out skin tone, incorporating nourishing jojoba oil into the base to keep skin hydrated.

6. Butter London 3 Free Nail Lacquer, $14 available at Sephora
This popular nail brand not only offers the hottest fashion colours of the season (not to mention a celeb favourite), but also prides itself on being a ‘three-free’ company – formulas are free of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP. Your precious tips will thank you!
