The ELLE Canada beauty team has collectively seen thousands (a conservative estimate) of makeup launches over the years – it’s part of the job. So when it came time to create products of our own, we knew exactly what we wanted: a tightly edited collection featuring fashion-forward – but totally wearable – shades and textures. ELLE Canada and ELLE Québec beauty directors Vanessa Craft (who is now our editor-in-chief) and Angélique Martel met with David Vincent, international makeup artist for Lise Watier, for several creative and collaborative brainstorming sessions, which resulted in Weekender, a four-piece makeup collection for fall 2017. This collaboration and partnership with Canadian company Lise Watier is the first of its kind internationally and will be available across the country while supplies last. We can’t wait for you to try it.
