Canada 150 Beauty: Lise Watier Anti-Aging Makeup Tutorial

How much of your beauty routine is made up of Canadian beauty products? In honour of Canada 150, today’s makeup tutorial features one of our favourite Canadian brands, Lise Watier. Not only is Lise Watier a Canadian brand, but many of Lise Watier’s products feature Labrador Tea extract, an anti-aging ingredient that can only be found in the Boreal Forest of Quebec, Canada. Lise Watier partnered with the University of Quebec at Chicoutimi to develop a unique extraction process for this highly potent antioxidant, which has amazing protective and regenerating capacities.

In this tutorial, our Beauty Advisor Sara will walk you through a complete makeup look, using many of the Lise Watier products which contain this powerful Labrador Tea extract. Your makeup will not only look great, but will protect against environmental stressors and the signs of aging all day!

Lise Watier’s Spring 2017 Collection is Blossoming with Colourful New Beauty Favourites

Lise Watier has launched their spring 2017 collection, Blossom Beauty, and our Beauty Advisors are head over heels! The floral ambiance of cherry blossoms, mimosas, anemones, and peonies inspired this beautiful makeup collection, which includes eyeshadows, blush, and even an all-new bicolor lipstick. See each of the new spring launches below, and be sure follow the pro application tips from Lise Watier’s International Makeup Artist David Vincent to achieve your flawless spring look!

 

Lise Watier Rose Nudes 12-Colour Eyeshadow Palette

This palette contains 12 new neutral shades in different finishes going from luminous matte to satin. A double-ended brush that is perfectly designed for eye makeup is also included in the mirrored case.

Pro Tip from David Vincent:

Matte shades can be applied all over the mobile eyelid, while more iridescent shades are perfect to illuminate certain parts of the eye (under the eyebrows, the centre of the eyelid, and the interior corner of the eye).

 

Lise Watier Bicolor Lipstick (Limited Edition)

Follow the hottest Korean beauty trend! This lipstick creates an ombré effect thanks to two complementary colours selected to be used together. It is also possible to create your very own personalized colour by combining both shades together. Try shades Naked Glow or Blushing Glow.

Pro Tip from David Vincent:

Apply the lighter shade near the outside of the lips, and the darker shade towards the centre. Blend the line where they meet using a lip brush or using the tip of your fingers.

 

Lise Watier Blossom Blush (Limited Edition)

This is an ultra-rich powder blush with a silky texture to illuminate, uplift and sculpt the cheeks. The universal shade is suitable for all complexions providing a natural finish and a healthy glow.

Pro Tip from David Vincent:

Apply lipstick before blush to avoid using too much and to naturally enhance your look.

 

Lise Watier Portfolio Professional Colour Correcting Stick

Portfolio correctors perfectly target and instantly correct a variety of skin imperfections all in the convenience and precision of a retractable stick. Available in 4 colour correcting shades: Jaune conceals blue veins and under eye circles, Lavande neutralizes and brightens skin tone, Pêche neutralizes dark spots and illuminates, and Vert neutralizes redness and imperfections.

Pro Tip from David Vincent:

Apply directly to imperfections and blend with a touch of foundation.

 

Lise Watier 24 Hrs Glam Eyeshadow

This waterproof eyeshadow glides on smoothly for a crease-proof and smudge resistant result. Easy to apply, it blends easily, dried quickly, and stays in place until it’s removed. An integrated sharpener under the bottom cap sharpens automatically for a precise application every time. This multifunctional crayon can be used as an eyeshadow, an eyeliner or even as a base for your eye makeup. Try the new shades Ivory and Urban.

Pro Tip from David Vincent:

Apply the eyeshadow directly to the eyelid and blend with your fingertips. To make sure that the result is even, blend the product immediately after its application. Wait 5 seconds for the product to dry before applying other eye makeup to ensure a long-lasting result.

 

Lise Watier Féline Eyeliner HD

This eyeliner provides definition and intensity in a single stroke thanks to its ultra-pigmented, quick-drying formula. Its fine and supple felt-tip applicator allows for an easy and precise application. Try in the new shade Carbon.

Pro Tip from David Vincent:

Apply starting from the outside corner of the eye moving towards the centre, then draw another line beginning at the inside corner of the eye and connect the two lines at the centre.

Makeup Essentials to Dazzle on the Holiday Party Circuit

The holidays are fast approaching, and with it comes party season! There will be plenty of opportunities to glam up your makeup look, between holiday entertaining with family and friends and office Christmas parties. ‘Tis the season to rock festive manicures, dramatic lipsticks and dazzling eye looks.

To help prep for the ever-growing list of social outings and soirées, Beauty Advisors from London Drugs have curated a list of the biggest beauty trends and colours that work best for the holidays.

 

Festive Nails
kiss-nailsessieYou can’t go wrong with the classics when it comes to holiday manicures, but try upgrading to a formula that will survive the Christmas party hop. Essie’s new 2-step Gel Couture luxurious wear formula lasts longer than the 12 Days of Christmas (up to 14 days, in fact). Essie’s Gel Couture in Hang up the Heels and Gala-Vanting are both beautiful classic shades that will match any holiday outfit.

Got a last minute party invite? Throw on a set of Kiss Gel Fantasy Ready-To-Wear Gel Nails in Faux Real for gorgeous nails in a pinch.

 

Sparkling Eyes

glitter-linerpaletteWith so many events and varying dress codes, London Drugs’ Beauty Advisors recommend an eyeshadow palette with a wide range of shades to adjust your look accordingly. A favourite is L’Oreal’s Colour Riche La Palette in Nude 1. With a selection of 10 neutral matte and shimmery shades, you can play your look up or down depending on the event. Creating a cat-eye with L’Oreal’s easy to use Superstar Eyeliner is the perfect way to amp up the look.

If a party calls for a little more sparkle, add a touch of glitter to the cat-eye. A long-time favourite is Lise Watier’s Eye Glitter Liner.

 

Holiday Face

The easiest way to light up the room at any party is with a flawless glow. Our beauty experts suggest Makeup Revolution’s Vivid Baked Highlighter; it gives a beautiful shimmery golden glow to the cheekbones in just one sweep.

 

 

Holiday Lips

lip-paletteInvesting in a lip palette with a variety of shades will make switching up your look between parties that much easier. The L’Oreal Colour Riche La Palette Lip in Ruby Red has the perfect gradient of bright to deep reds that will compliment all of your holiday eye looks. For an extra trendy pout, London Drugs’ Beauty Advisors recommend applying a coat of Maybelline’s Lip Studio Shine Shot Lip Top Coat in Clear Vinyl over top.

 

Products to Last the Party Circuit

cargosetting-sprayTo make sure your makeup lasts from secret Santa exchange to cocktail hour, it’s worth adding these beauty products to your holiday makeup routine. Applying an eyeshadow primer prior to your eye makeup will ensure that the shadow (and your super glam glitter liner) don’t budge all night. Try the Cargo HD Picture Perfect Eye Shadow Primer: eyeshadow will appear more vivid and will be locked in place. Once makeup application is complete, don’t forget to mist your face with L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro Mist & Fix Makeup Extender Setting Spray. This spray will keep your makeup looking flawless all night long.
