Toronto: World Mastercard Fashion Week + Giveaway

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend World Mastercard Toronto Fashion Week. 
It was a great opportunity to check out everything fashion and beauty under one roof. 
What I really loved was that this time I had the opportunity to see the whole picture. 
The conception of the backstage look to the runway!

Maybelline-Mélissa Nepton:
This look was all about the brows!

"Well-Groomed, bold brows brought focus to the eyes at Mélissa Nepton" -Grace Lee, Lead Makeup Artist, Maybelline New York Canada

Love the brows? Get the look?
Start with the Define-A-Brow® pencil to shape.
Use the Eyestudio® Brow Drama to fill in.

Essie-Mélissa Nepton:
Hello Spring nails!

Want the look?
You need:
Apricot Cuticle Oil (base)
Ridge Filling Base Coat(on top)
Where’s My Chauffeur? or Turquoise & Caicos or Absolutely Shore (on all but the ring finger)
No Place Like Chrome (ring finger)

Redken-Mélissa Nepton:
"It's simple but there is still technically behind it"- Jorge Jao, Redken's Lead Artist 

One of the staples to get the look is the Pillow Proof blow dry express primer. This is a must have for curly haired girls like me because it has a heat protectant hair primer. Which protects your hair up to 450 degrees. Plus cuts down blow dry time, provides 24-hour lasting volume and helps to reduce breakage. Totally wish I had this in my high school blow dry my hair straight everyday phases.

Not sure if you can pull of this look?
Jorge recommends a simple 3-step regime to get you started.
Starting with Pillow Proof blow dry express primer to prep hair.
Using any Redken styling products. 
Use Pillow Proof blow dry two-day extender a dry shampoo to extend your style.
