Press Event : beautyBOUTIQUE By SDM TIFF Suite 2017 #SDMBeauTIFFul

This year, beautyBOUTIQUE by Shoppers Drug Mart marked their 8th Annual TIFF Suite — for the first time ever in partnership with Entertainment One’s TIFF Lounge at the Intercontinental Hotel in the heart of Downtown Toronto. From Canadian editors, influencers, tastemakers, television hosts and radio personalities, I was fortunate enough to get dolled up at their complimentary beauty lounge.

Featuring brands, artists & reps from :

* St. Tropez
* Gucci Fragrance by Coty
* DUO Glue & Ardell Lashes
* PHYTO Hair Care

The TIFF Suite was open from September 7, 2017 to September 10, 2017 via appointment only. Special appearances were made by award-winning makeup artist, Simone Otis for the beautyBOUTIQUE by Shoppers Drug Mart, Jessica Jara, National Spokesperson for ACI Beauty / Stila Cosmetics / DUO, manicures by TIPS Nail Artist & SDM Spokesperson Melissa Forrest using QUO by ORLY, and custom skin finishing treatments for St. Tropez by New York based Celebrity Tanning Expert Sophie Evans.

Of course snacks, breakfast & lunch were provided, with yummy food from the Intercontinental Hotel! This included but was not limited to cinnamon buns, yogurt parfaits, peanut butter protein balls, various salads, sandwiches, samosas, sliders, etc. Mmmm.

And…there is my red carpet makeup provided by a talented Stila Cosmetics makeup artist! She used Ardell Lashes & DUO Glue for my falsies. (I asked for dramatic ones this time!) For the makeup, she used Stay All Day Foundation, Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black, Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Stingray, Magnificient Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Molten Midnight, Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Color in Auburn, Eyes Are The Window Shadow Palette in Mind, Convertible Color Blush in Sweet Pea and Huge Extreme Lash Mascara — all by Stila Cosmetics! Obviously there’s a theme going on — almost all waterproof products so the application would last all day!


After we took our selfies, we also received a lovely goody bag! (Thank you!) I’m excited to try the Ardell Deluxe Pack, that includes a lash applicator. I find applying lashes on others comes very easy to me, but to apply on myself seems a bit more challenging, so I hope the applicator makes things easier!

So what did you do for TIFF? Did you catch a movie or go to a party? Which celebs did you bump into?
