Beauty Refresh Issue
If you are looking for some makeup inspiration to start the New Year, UK celebrity makeup artist Nina Westbury shares her all-time best beauty tips and tricks in this issue. She lives in London and was the makeup artist for the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament for four years. And yes, the story about her making up John McEnroe for a week and not knowing who he was is true. She follows lipstick shades more than tennis scores. One of Nina’s favourite brands, Clinique, offers a pop of joyful colour with a limited edition Marimekko collaboration. The new Pop Splash lip glosses are dressed in the iconic fashion house’s joyful prints.
Fans of the Versace brand will be glued to their tablets and screens this month when FX screens The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story starring Penelope Cruz, Darren Criss and Ricky Martin. Ryan Murphy is producing and early teasers show a luxe and compelling story. Donatella just may be the most underrated fashion designer today having dreamt up the supermodel campaigns and keeping the brand alive after Gianni’s death. She launches a beautiful new women’s fragrance this month: Dylan Blue for Her. The bottle is signature Versace.
And if you visit the Toronto, Canada area in the near future, be sure to plan a visit to the Hudson’s Bay Yorkdale store. You’ll find the very first Coty fume scent lounge with interactive counters, fragrance inhalers and perfume experts. It’s a new way of discovering and testing scents. I hope you enjoy this issue.
