Concealer M.A.C Cosmetics Studio Fix 24-Hour Smooth Wear Concealer ($28) This long-wearing concealer strikes a delicate balance between second-skin-like fluidity and mattifying full coverage. Gently dot the doe-foot applicator on imperfections and blend with your preferred tool: finger, sponge or brush—or, if you’re really serious, all three. Marc Jacobs Beauty Accomplice Concealer & Touch-Up Stick ($42) Available in 17 shades, this creamy stick concealer seamlessly covers up dark circles and blemishes without creasing in the slightest. “A few dabs go a long way with this product,” said Rawan Attia from Mississauga, Ont. “What I loved most was how long it lasted.” Eyebrow Product Benefit Cosmetics 24-HR Brow Setter ($32) Sandra Lewis from Calgary gave this clear gel the ultimate stamp of approval. “It held up all day, and I got the brushed-out thick look I prefer,” she…

“Growing up in Canada, I rarely saw someone in a magazine or on television who reflected the way I looked. Now, the beauty industry is taking active steps to become more diverse and [portray] what people around the world look like, and that inclusive approach is going to help redefine beauty. For me to be a face of CoverGirl, a brand I’ve always used, I hope it shows Canadians that no matter your culture, religion, age, orientation or skin tone, we can all be recognized as beautiful.”– Television personality SANGITA PATEL, who is celebrating her third year as a Canadian CoverGirl ambassador…

IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN a decade since Byron and Dexter Peart—identical twins and dapper darlings of the Canadian design world—bought condos in the Montreal housing complex Habitat 67.

In 2017, Canada Post honoured the building with a stamp. Shortly after, Moshe Safdie, who designed Habitat 67 when he was a 24-year-old architecture student at McGill University, renovated the top-floor unit he owns and opened it up to tour groups. Hardly a day goes by without the brothers noticing a curious visitor admiring the facade, which is made up of 354 interlocking concrete blocks. “When something is a half-century old and people are taking…

PISCES FEB. 19 – MARCH 20 Thanks to another person’s inexplicable reactions or lack of transparency, there will be a friendship or relationship that troubles you this month.

JODIE TURNER-SMITH HAS EVERY REASON to be tired: The actor gave birth to a baby girl in April in the midst of a global pandemic, has two films slated for next year and, like many of us, is trying to navigate one of the most politically and culturally fraught moments in modern history. But when we connected over the summer to talk about her being invited by Gucci’s leading creative, Alessandro Michele, to star as one of the faces of the much anticipated Gucci Bloom Profumo di Fiori fragrance, she was improbably composed. In fact, her regal poise and measured way of constructing her thoughts made it immediately clear why she was snapped up by director Melina Matsoukas to star as one of the titular characters in the sweeping 2019…
