Hello, Gorgeous!

5 Winter Must-Haves that You can find at Bower Place

Here is a little hint of just a fraction of what is to come this Sunday, November 15 for Girl’s Night In! I can’t wait to see you then, but in the meantime, here are five things on my Winter fashion and beauty must-have list:

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo

Guess what? There is actually a red lipstick that looks good with any skin tone and hair colour and THIS IS IT! Ruby Woo is a beautiful red with blue undertones. This colour will also make your teeth look whiter! Find this at Hudson’s Bay.

QUO Beauty Blender

Ladies, if you’re still applying your foundation with your fingertips, then we need to talk! A beauty blender is a makeup sponge that can be used to apply primer, foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush, powders . . . you name it! This is one of my key steps to achieving flawless makeup. You’ll learn the others on November 15. Stay tuned! Grab yours at Shoppers Drug Mart in the meantime.

Dr Martens Combat Boots

Combat boots have made a major come back this year! Do you wish you’d saved your Doc Martens from high school? They are bigger than ever and in multiple styles and finishes. I went with the soft leather from Doc Martens instead of the classic, rigid style. They are edgy, stylish, but also practical to wear during the winter months! Lace them up or leave them open. Wear them with leggings, jeans, or even skirts.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Holy Hydration Face Cream

Winter in Alberta is like an arctic desert. We need intense skin hydration! This one is the best moisturizing bang for your buck. Pick this up at Shoppers Drug Mart and use it morning and night. It’s packed with hyaluronic acid and is a great base under makeup.

Karl Lagerfield Paris Belted Robe Coat

This coat is pure style. It’s easy to throw on and tie up when rushing out the door for school drop-off or pick-up. Shop in it in 4 different colours and wear it over jeans and a sweater or with your holiday party fancy dress. I like to think of a good coat as an investment and this one has a classic and versatile style that will last you for years to come. Find yours at Hudson’s Bay.
