What I learned from Fashion Week

By: Guest Blogger
What I learned from Toronto Fashion Week, Spring/Summer 2014:
  • Backstage, people are still smiling on Thursday, but by Friday the energy starts to lag and Saturday is just frenetic.
  • Yes, the some of the Target models had bullseye red lips and nails.
  • Groomed eyebrows and big eyebrows are back
  • Clean make up, fresh looking skin is what’ll be hot for Spring/Summer 2014.
  • Nude is coming in a big way.
  • Nude lips are “a great look for everyone, and goes well with a smokey eye and natural make-up.  It’s fun” says Grace Lee
  • “You can absolutely find great make-up that’s affordable” (yes, this was sponsored by Maybelline)
  • Nude nails, fresh and clean, are the next hot thing.  “Like you’re nail but better.  Bare or complexion enhancing,” are the buzzwords.
  • Hair is pretty much anything goes: flowy, beachy, short cuts are coming back and a lot of loose updos.
  • Clothes are flowy, yet showy, and emaciated models are still par for the course.
                    So what are the biggest makeup mistakes?  Says Grace Lee:
  • “Too much bronzer –they tend to overdo it and look orange.”
  • “Also, women don’t pay enough attention when applying mascara to the root of their lash line.  A lot of them are in a hurry and only get their ends, but when I do their mascara, I start right at the lash line and wiggle my way up and it makes a huge difference.”
  And the biggest hair mistakes?  Says Jorge Joao:
  • “Over working the hair.  Keep it simple.”
  • “Using too much product.  Sometimes we think we need more, when really, we just need less.
  • If you’re looking for how-tos, Redken Ready has tutorials that are super user friendly.
    Biggest Nail Mistakes?  Says Essie:
  • “Over trimming their cuticles, that’s massive, and can lead to inflammation and bacteria.”
  • “Using dark polishes and getting it on the cuticles –they just look bruised.
