Juno Awards Beauty Essentials

Getting ready for any party means looking fresh and fabulous.  From the moment you wake up to your contour and blush, all of the pieces are just as important.

As I will be attending the Casper Viewing Party for the Juno Awards, I am prepping my look. While still deciding on a dress ( which may just turn out to be an LBD ) it all starts with great hair.

Whether using a service like BeGlammed or a DIY style yourself, for the freshest hair I suggest Garnier Fructis

No matter whether pastel hues or bold shades, you will want a neutral yet defining lipstick. For the last year or so I have stood by my brilliant Tilbury shades.  Nothing says red carpet like Bond Girl, by Charlotte Tilbury.

Last finishing touch, you cannot go wrong with a hint ( or a lot ) of face and body glitter.  Having this brilliant pink shade from NYX it will be sure to hit all the right spots.

Throughout the week I will be testing out these fabulous products and posting reviews.

Best always,

Melissa ❤

#MagicFoundation by #CharlotteTilbury

As a LifeStyle and Culture Blogger I have had the luxury of trying out a variety of different makeup.  To wear that of Charlotte Tilbury’s new line of Magic Foundation is truly wonderful.  She really does ensure that it is magic, it is like no other.

I was invited to their launch event in Canada and was more than pleasantly surprised with the gorgeous pallets of the evening.  Enjoying champagne and macarons as we found our perfect magic match it was a magical evening.

One of my favourite reasons I love this product is how it feels to wear. Not only, as a 4.5 ( I have a fairer skin tone ) did it give me a gentle glow, but it literally felt like I wasn’t even wearing any make-up. No girl ever wants to feel like it is weighing her down and this gorgeous product was light as a feather.  It is easy as well to apply with a a brush to blend it in for the ultimate girl-next-door or going-out glam.  What is amazing about the product is that it is not just makeup but skincare as well, being hydrating and a perfect product for any skin type.


Throughout the evening, makeup artists were either doing touch ups or full looks to enhance your already natural beauty.  I was thrilled to have a full look done and captured throughout the night. As I used it throughout Fashion Week and for upcoming events, I find that not only does it last from 9-5 but again from 5-9 there is no need for re-apply, just if you need a touch up to feel fresh but nothing more.

For anyone looking for a great new piece to keep you looking fabulous all day – you cannot go wrong with Charlotte Tilbury.

PS. She has also got a new Instant Palette to add to your foundation for that perfect glow to perfect your Spring and Summer Looks.  ( Great for the 5 minute face on the go ! ) Will definitely have more on that soon!

Best always,
