In terms of the amount and general enthusiasm of its attendees, Generation Beauty is like the ComicCon of beauty conferences. Except instead of mint-condition comics and Marvel-themed outfits, think: exclusive makeup samples, appearances by some of the biggest YouTube beauty vloggers in the world and the most expertly-applied eyeliner you’ve ever seen in one room. 

For the first time, the Ipsy-hosted event was held in Toronto, where we caught up with massively popular beauty stars Desi Perkins, Chrisspy, Christen Dominique, Karen Yeung, Jaleesa Moses, Cydnee Black and Madelynn De La Rosa. Here, they tell us the best foundations they’ve ever used.
