Backstage at Mackage, Maybelline’s Lead Makeup Artist for Canada Grace Lee wanted models to “look frosted” to compliment the collection’s cool Arctic/iceberg-inspired look. This translated into a graphic eye that you, if anything like me, will want to steal for your next nighttime outing. Using the width of the brush as a guide, Lee applied a thick swipe of black Maybelline Eye Studio Master Graphic Liquid Liner, then layered Maybelline Colour Show Kohl Liner in Turquoise Flash over top. “Each eye will look different,” said Lee, “because when you open the eye, the blue kind of disappears, with just a hint of blue visible on the inner corner and the outer corner. When [the model] blinks, you will see a pop of icy blue.” Skin was well-moisturized, then highlighted with Maybelline Face Studio Master Prime in Blur and Illuminate on the chin, cupid’s bow and bridge of the nose. “We used [primer] to highlight the skin where you would normally put highlighter, for a really beautiful sheen. Adding this gives it that icy feel.”

You’re at World MasterCard Fashion Week and you’re in desperate need of a blowout, a manicure and/or some Zen time – where do you go? All week we’ll be sharing nail bars, salons and spas within easy walking/Uber-ing distance from David Pecaut Square.

In between all of the madness that is Toronto Fashion Week, melting makeup, flat hair and elevated cortisol are par for the course. But a beauty oasis exists, and it’s a mere hop, skip and jump from the tents. At the Detox market, you’ll find all of my favourite brands—RMS Beauty, Ilia, LoveOrganics, Odacite, Teatox, Vapour Organic Beauty, Rahua, and Mini Organics—all housed in a serene, laid-back space. It’s also a beacon for cold-pressed, fresh juices from Greenhouse Juice Co. Touch yourself up with RMS Beauty “Un-Powder”, refresh with some SoapWalla Deodorant, spritz yourself with some Honore des Pres Love Coconut Eau de Parfum and you’ll feel refreshed enough for round two at the tents.

Toronto’s sexiest gym does not disappoint. For starters, the change rooms are stocked with oversize Kiehl’s bottles, so there’s enough Creme de Corps to quench parched winter-abused skin. Then, the classes. They offer everything from the waist-whittling Essentrics (and ELLE Canada fave) to the newer Rhythm & Barre (ideal if you’re looking to preserve your blowout). There’s also an impressive juicebar, which offers custom blends whether you’re looking to rinse last night’s vodka-fueled post-show party or re-up your protein intake. And if you’re dying for a massage or facial, there’s a compact spa embedded into the slick space too.
