The Toronto International Film Festival came to an end, we must say, we’re pretty sad to see it go. Toronto is just not as sparkly when the red carpets roll up and our beloved celebs head home. So, to bid farewell to the fabulous film festival season we decided to recap one of our favourite events: the annual beautyBOUTIQUE by Shoppers Drug Mart/Sally Hershberger TIFF Suite.
What we love about the TIFF suite is, well, everything. Let’s face it, hitting the red carpet (inevitable for media folk at this time of year) can be kind of intimidating, what with all the flashing lights from the cameras pointing directly at us. Beauty blunders happen (remember these? (link to: http://www.ellecanada.com/celebrity/celebrity-beauty/beauty-tips-biggest-celebrity-beauty-blunders-of-2011/a/53663)). To avoid humiliation we’ve come to lean on the TIFF suite and its complimentary beauty services that have us dazzling and just begging for a close-up.
This year we welcomed the the return of celebrity hair stylist, Sally Hershberger, who partnered with Shoppers Drug Mart, offering up blowouts and styling tips. Makeup applications were provided by Shoppers’ beautyBOUTIQUE and stila’s pro makeup artists. That’s not even close to all. Other services included lash applications by a DUO Professional Eyelash experts, mini-manicures from Ceramic Glaze, skin finishing treatments by a St. Tropez skin finishing expert and teeth whitening by Luster Premium Whote. When we left we were also given little gifts: the essentials for keeping fresh all day.
This is our official thank you and au revoir to TIFF! We’re looking forward to next year already.
