Summer is official here!
Although our shops are closed, we continue to seek out results-oriented, high performance skin care, sun care and cosmetics for you to enjoy. We are excited to share with you some makeup NEW ARRIVALS that are now available for you to purchase online for delivery and for curbside pickups.
We are all spending a lot of time on our screens these days on Zoom calls so Oresta and Laryssa have created easy 5 minute Zoom ready looks with their favourite clean beauty products.
Oresta's 5 Minute Makeup Look:
Hynt Concealer: With this concealer, a little bit goes a long way. I like to apply it under my eyes, around my nose, and even to cover up pigmentation spots on my chest. You can apply it with your fingers or I also like dabbing a bit on the back of my hand, then blending it in with a foundation brush. It's terrific for covering up redness. I use the medium tan shade.
Josh Rosebrook Tinted SPF Nutrient Day Cream: This day cream provides both beautiful light coverage and sun protection. I use it instead of foundation, and while the coverage is lighter than with a foundation, it's great at evening out my skin tone. Don't forget to rub some into your neck and chest, too.
HAN Bronzer: I use the Malibu shade and apply it with a bronzer brush. You should make sure to shake out the brush a bit before applying it to your face. Better to start with less and build up coverage. I like to apply on my upper cheek, across my forehead and chin, and on my décolleté. This gives you a beautiful sun-kissed glow in seconds.
ILIA Multi Stick: Using both blush and bronzer is a great way to add more dimension to your face, and to make sure your makeup doesn't end up looking flat. I like to apply this using either a blush brush or my fingers, and I blend a bit in just on the apple of my cheeks.
HAN Illuminator: Illuminators are a great way to give your skin a quick, healthy glow and to brighten your complexion. I apply it with my finger just dabbing and blending around my upper cheek and the outside of my eye.
Elate Brow Balm: I use the Suede shade and like it because it's a lighter brown, which helps to accentuate my brow and fill in the blanks. I apply this with an eyebrow brush and it really helps to define my eye area.
ILIA Lipstick: If I want more of a punch of colour, I love to apply lipstick. ILIA makes such amazing lipsticks, and Knockout is one of my faves.
Hynt Eyeliner: I like to use a brown eyeliner which I find looks a bit more natural on me. If I'm applying makeup for a daytime look, I like to just use a bit to define the outer top corner of my eye.
Fitglow Lipgloss: I'm more of a lipgloss person. This Nudie lip serum from Fitglow has plumping action, which I love, and it gives my lips a natural look I adore.

Laryssa's 5 Minute Makeup Look:
ILIA True Skin Serum Concealer: This is my first step. I like to dab this concealer around my eyes with my fingers. Make sure to blend it in well. It's also great for covering blemishes and sun spots, too.
Coola BB Cream: I use the Medium Deep shade, and blend it in with my fingers. Don't forget to blend it in to your neck and chest.
Urban Minerals Foundation: This offers a bit more coverage than just BB cream on its own. You'll need a Kabuki brush to apply this product. You just shake some out onto the lid, then swish your kabuki brush into the powder, then tap the brush to settle the powder. This is a great product in summer, because it feels nice and light on the skin.
Fitglow Sunny Days Cheek Palette: I love this new product from Fitglow. I apply it with my bronzer brush, and really gives your skin a beautiful, healthy glow. It also includes a great illuminator.
Hynt Eyeliner: These pencils are great and don't smudge. I like to lightly line the outer corner of my eyes, and lift up the line a bit in the corners. I also sometimes use this to help define my eyebrows.
ILIA Limitless Mascara: When I apply mascara, I always make sure to apply some to the tips of my lashes. I tend to only apply mascara to my top lashes. This one is great, as it doesn't smudge, and can be reapplied later in the day if you want to refresh your makeup.
HAN Blush: I apply Carousel blush on the apple of my cheek with a blush brush. I prefer a lighter blush application.
HAN Cheek + Lip Tint: This is another product I love. I use it with my fingers to blend into my cheeks or lips, and is great for a fresh summer look.
ILIA Liquid Light Serum Highlighter: I use the Astrid illuminator from ILIA and I find it just makes my skin look so much brighter and gives my skin a healthy, glowing finish. I like to dab it on my upper cheek, on the bridge of my nose, on my chin, and even on my chest.
Fitglow Night Lip Serum: Great for plumping and hydrating your lips. You can use this on its own or to prep your lips for lipstick.
ILIA Lipstick: Little Sister is one of my favourite shades from ILIA. It's a great everyday neutral, but still has a lot of personality. I also love Knockout, which is a bold bright pink shade, which is really fun for summer.
