Her skincare specialist explains.
When you get a bespoke facial from Jennifer Brodeur at Bella Clinique in Montreal, you’ll also meet “Max,” the LED-light-therapy machine that Brodeur designed in 2003 and always refers to as a person. (It’s actually called “Max+.”)
The machine, she explains, harnesses research from NASA and uses light wavelengths to treat skin concerns. Skin cells absorb the UV-free light as energy. Red-light wavelengths, for example, are said to stimulate fibroblasts to create collagen, while yellow light tightens skin.
“It’s interesting because you don’t feel anything, so a lot of clients at first were like, ‘Are you sure you’re doing something?’” she says, laughing. Any disbelievers can call Oprah; Brodeur has been treating her since 2012.
Over the weekend, Kylie Jenner attended a Ferrari-themed fourth birthday party for her boyfriend Tyga's son, King Cairo.
Her niece, North West, was in attendance, and wanted to try on one of her aunt's liquid lipsticks for the occasion. The three-year-old asked to have the black shade (presumably, Kylie Cosmetics Dead of Knight) applied and totes loved it, as documented on Snapchat.
Is a three-year-old too young to be wearing lipstick? That's up to her parents to decide, but we don't anticipate North to be wearing the Kylie Cosmetics fall collection anytime soon. As Kylizzle posted on Snapchat (rather counterproductively, I might add): "What happens at auntie Kylie's, stays at auntie Kylie's."
This is an Aubrey Drake Graham appreciation post.
Everyone in Toronto has a Drake story. Here, for his 30th birthday, the Toronto-based ELLE Canada team reflects on the reasons we have all come to love and appreciate the 6ix god.
“Drake – or rather my Drake playlist – has coached me through many tough long-distance runs in the 6ix. Tracks like “Back to Back,” “Energy” and “Too Good” amp me up, and just before cool down, I wind it down with the apropos “Hold On, We’re Going Home." – Carli Whitwell, editor
"I was huddled around the red carpet at the Celebrity All-Star game in February with every major media outlet in Canada. Instead of walking the red carpet (which was filled with legit stars by the way – Michael B. Jordan, Jason Sudeikis, Kevin Hart, etc.) Drake just appeared behind the media scrum, walking and talking with a Raptor. Everyone had to bolt from the carpet and run along beside him with their cameras to get the shot. Respect." - Victoria DiPlacido, associate beauty editor
"Attending the Juno awards (hosted by Drake) was a 2011 highlight. The icing on the top of the cake was his forever memorable ‘Old Money’ skit." – Danielle Campbell, designer
"I grew up listening to Drake, so I am largely influenced by his ‘chunes. The six god has taught me that: Wearing Timbs every single day from October 31st to March 30th is totally, totally acceptable; dancing like your drunk uncle can actually turn out to be a banger move at the club; never to take my sidechick to The Cheesecake Factory." – Maryjane Peters, beauty editorial assistant
"I once saw Drake at a Raptors game, wearing the hell out of an oversized cream cable knit sweater and nerdy frames. He completely redefined the grandpa aesthetic. Since then, l've always associated chunky sweaters with him (and his inherent ease and coolness). And retrospectively, I realize it was his confidence in wearing the sweater that really stayed with me." – Katherine Flemming, health and beauty editor
"Drake inspires me dance in public no matter how ridiculous I feel (and may look)." – Juliana Schiavinatto, fashion director

Okay, first – look, we have exciting new (Canadian exclusive!) posters for the Gilmore Girls sorta-sequel, premiering on Netflix November 25!
Second, OMG we also have never-before-revealed plot details of what's going down in the four 90-minute episodes!
In a release accompanying the photos, Netflix very casualllllly shares this little blurb about where we find our favourite Stars Hollow-ians, 9 years after the first series ended.
"...Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life finds each of our leading ladies at a major crossroad: Lorelai’s relationship with Luke is at an unnerving standstill; Rory’s budding journalism career in New York has stalled before it's even begun; and Emily’s world is turned upside down following the untimely passing of her beloved husband, Richard."
Take a moment to scroll through these posters (organised according to the four seasons, aka 'winter, spring, summer or fallllll, all you have to do is call'), digest, reread and come find us in the comment section to share how you're processing all this.
