a new dawn

As we transition from spring to summer, the earth is putting its most radiant foot forward, transforming from flower child to sun goddess. I, for one, am eager to follow suit, and I invite you to join me.

14 tricks, tips and ideas we love   this month

1 On the Fringe Statement accessories can really elevate any look. Give a simple outfit that little extra something with a pair of beaded or fabric tassel earrings in a brilliant hue. Draw even more attention to these large-scale yet intricate shoulder-grazers by pulling your hair back and showing them off. 2 BRIGHT IDEA Achieving the right lighting for alfresco entertaining can be a tricky task. Enter this rust-resistant lantern, which is sure to add ambience to any outdoor space. It’s just under 16 inches tall, so it can hold a candle, so to speak, next to planters without feeling lost. Pro tip: Swap out the candle for succulents to add a touch of greenery indoors or out. 3 BEYOND BANDAGES Seal-It revolutionized the craft world with its flake-free Glitter Tape. Now, the brand has…

shade finder

For light skin Fair skin with cool undertones looks best in bright candy-coloured pinks. Warm pink hues, like coral, are better suited for yellow undertones. For olive skin Almost any pink shade is a go, except those with a blue undertone, which can make olive complexions look dull. For dark skin Deep skin tones look radiant in bright pink, so go bold. Muted, neutral pinks can look washed out.…

pout perfection

Step 1 HAVE DRY LIPS? START WITH A SCRUB. WE LOVE BITE BEAUTY’S AGAVE SUGAR LIP SCRUB ($20, SEPHORA.CA); IT EXFOLIATES WITH PINEAPPLE ENZYMES AND CONDITIONS WITH AGAVE SYRUP. WORK A SMALL AMOUNT OVER YOUR POUT IN CIRCULAR MOTIONS TO SMOOTH. Step 2 PLUTINO GROUP MAKEUP ARTIST SHERI STROH RECOMMENDS APPLYING A BALM BEFORE A TINT. “TO PRESERVE A STAIN’S MATTE LOOK, USE A WAXY LIP BALM THAT DOESN’T HAVE A LOT OF SHINE,” SHE SAYS. IT KEEPS DRY SKIN AT BAY AND GIVES THE COLOUR EXTRA STAYING POWER. Step 3 WITH STAINS, LESS IS MORE. THEY SHOULD BE LAYERED ON SLOWLY AND SPARINGLY, SO RESIST THE URGE TO PILE IT ON. “APPLY IT WITH YOUR FINGERTIP, DABBING IT ONTO YOUR LIPS,” SAYS STROH. “IT SOFTENS EVERYTHING AND MAKES THE STAIN LOOK MORE LUSH.”…

pick your potion

LIQUID If you’re looking for a light-as-air tint that won’t transfer, try a water stain. This Clarins formula is 77 percent water, which leaves behind a tattoolike finish. The colour is buildable—the more layers, the deeper the shade. GEL If you love a stained pout but crave a wee bit more hydration, choose a gel formula. This one from Nudestix delivers moisture and major shine. Bonus: It’s a multitasker that can be used on cheeks as well as lips. POWDER Upon contact with the lips, powder stains become slightly creamy and smooth due to their hydrogel ingredients. “I like a powder lip with a really bare face—everything else simple,” says Stroh. BALM This hydrating balm-and-blush duo contains 100-percent-natural ingredients (95 percent of which are organic). It also has antiaging benefits thanks to hyaluronic acid.…
