wearing Vero Moda, and Reitmans necklace
As a naturally audacious person in a society that praises extroverts more than introverts, my boldness is memorable. I enjoyed stepping out at World MasterCard fashion week rocking some outfits that turned heads on my commute and earned me a few compliments while in class. While my daily looks are usually toned down, I decided to have fun last week and take the opportunity to strut in what I would love to wear every day. I even got featured in Toronto Life and Fashion Canada's Street Style round-ups (you can check them out on my press page). I was 'rewarded' by not being afraid or influenced by the opinions of others for my outfit but instead wore something I loved. When you're bold it's usually a move that's for yourself while disregarding the what everyone else thinks-which is pretty scary. I have received so much in life from being bold...you can too.
Maybelline, essie and I want to give you the chance to be bold by rocking some of their runway-beauty looks.
While nude nails and makeup are definitely on-trend, try to make more of a bold statement with your own look so you can stand out from the crowd. This season Grace Lee and Rita Remark designed my favourite SS16 runway looks for Canadian designer, Mackage. While Hayley Elsaesser's collection and beauty looks were definitely braver, Mackage's look was dark and moody. The gradient lip, of course, had me swooning. I stared wide-eyed at every model wearing the look backstage who passed me.
On to nails: Rita did it again. She always comes up with such creative ideas for nail art. This season her idea built off of the Mackage collection of perforated leather, tasselled & teal suede and unseasonably dark accessories.
Watch my video below to see how Grace and Rita achieved these looks.
