Tomorrow morning I am heading to Montreal to be dazzled by the city’s Haute Couture Barbie exhibit! I can’t way to drink in the arts and culture of this iconic French Canadian city. Of course when packing for a getaway bringing all the best fashion and beauty essentials is top of mind. Here is a preview of some of the goodies I’ll be bringing with me on my trip.
What’s In My Purse: Aveda Color Conserve Hair Products (Aveda) | Velvet Matte Skin Tint (Nars) | Sunset Bronze Lipgloss (Elizabeth Arden) | Fully Charged Magnetic Mascara (Pur Cosmetics) | Clutch, Sunglasses & Accessories (Le Chateau)
Any girl with coloured hair knows the struggle of a fading dye job is all too real. The best way to combat a dull mane is by investing in haircare products that promise to conserve your colour wash after wash. Aveda’s Color Conserve collection has been my go-to lately for all things hair. How do these life-saving products work? Through ingredients such as sunflower and macadamia nut oils these products work to seal the cuticle to illuminate color with reflective shine.
It’s so easy to go overboard with makeup, but in Montreal I want to keep it simple. A clean, even complexion is very important to me which is why NARS is the only skincare product I’ll be using. The all-new Velvet Skin Tint is oil-free, SPF30 and works to instantly eliminate the appearance of pores, blotchiness or redness. This skin tint is as light as a feather and gives skin a natural, healthy glow.
Mascara wise I’m addicted to Pur Cosmetics. Pur’s anti-aging Fully Charged mascara has a magnetic polymer matrix that wraps a positively charged elastic veil around each lash to instantly lift, separate and define each lash for long-lasting performance. That’s lash technology I can count on!
Elizabeth Arden’s Spring/ Summer 2016 collection is simply to die for. I’m in love with every product in this collection because it is so bronzed and beautiful. In particular, the shimmering lip glosses in this collection are amazing. The light, subtle shimmer is the perfect way to make your lips kissable and cute no matter the occasion.
Glamorous accessories are my absolutely favourite way to make an outfit come to life! I am so ecstatic to share the beautiful Le Chateau looks I’ll be sporting in Montreal. For now here is a preview of the pretty golden sunglasses, bracelets and rings I’ve picked out. I think that accessories are definitely better in excess…there is no such thing as too many sparkles!
While in Montreal I will be staying at Hotel Le Crystal located in the heart of downtown. Stay tuned for coverage of the Haute Couture Barbie Exhibit and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts as well as my visit to Bar à Ongles CANDY.
