Britt’s Christmas Shopping List

It is never too early to start thinking about the perfect Christmas gifts for your beloved friends and family. Need some expert inspiration? Here are Britt’s top beauty picks for 2017 that are sure to make you the most popular Santa around.

For the hair goddess

1) T3′ Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand

 

We all want our hair to look great, but who has the time to achieve that ‘just left the salon’ look every day? This award-winning styling wand from T3 definitely makes looking effortlessly glamourous, actually effortless. It’s suitable for all hair types, be it straight, curly or wavy; and with three interchangeable barrels, you can create defined spiral curls, beachy waves or full-body glamour waves for any occasion.

For the makeup palette-lover

2)Huda Beauty’s Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette 

 

The name of this palette conjures warm, tropical vacations in a distant land…the perfect escape for our cold Canadian winters. The shades are breathtaking to look at, and with names like Saffron, Amethyst and Amber, this palette looks almost as beautiful in the package as it is on your eyes. Huda Beauty is also a growing beauty brand with a very charismatic make-up artist/beauty blogger and her two sisters as the owners, so it’s worth checking out if you want to support a (fairly) new and promising brand.  

For the contour expert

3)Fenty Beauty by Rihanna’s Match Stix Trio

                 

Rihanna’s beauty line has barely been out for a few months and it’s already become a massive top-seller and fast on its way to achieving cult status. It’s not just Rihanna’s star power (although that likely helped), but the actual products themselves have been critically acclaimed by beauty experts and regular users alike. It’s been especially praised for its inclusivity, and this trio of long-wear, light-as-air highlighters are curated by skin tone, and are meant to “conceal, contour, and highlight on repeat”. This is the ultimate gift for the Rihanna fan on your list, or anyone else for that matter!

For the makeup lover who loves the ‘no makeup look’
4)Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Blush Kit

During the winter months, a lack of sun and warmth can leave your complexion looking pasty and tired (especially from all that Christmas shopping!). Create a natural glow by infusing your cheeks with the rosy colours in this blush kit that comes in two sets of shades, with four full-pigments in each set. Anastasia started out and is still known for crafting expert eyebrows, but we are glad to see them branching out into other beauty products.

For the romantic party-girl

5) Too Faced’s Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette – Peaches and Cream Collection

Just the name ‘velvet matte’ is enough to attract a makeup lover’s attention. With the recent craze for matte lips, it’s nice to see that it’s finally the eyes’ turn to get the matte treatment. Glitter and metallic shadows are fine and well for holiday party looks, but there is just something very romantic and mysterious about matte eyelids (or matte anything for that matter!). As an added plus, this product promises to smell like peaches and cream. Get this for the makeup fanatic who already has enough metallic and glitter in their arsenal.

For the scent hound

6) Elizabeth and James’ A Little Bit of Nirvana

 

It is said that certain memories are embedded in certain scents, and that we are often not even conscious of the association between these memories and their scents until we encounter that scent again. That’s why choosing the right fragrance is such an important and personal thing. You can associate one specific fragrance with only one person forever, which can either be a good or a bad thing (depending on who that person is). This elegantly packaged fragrance set allows you to remember someone with four different scents. The mini bottles are named: Nirvana Black, Nirvana Bourbon, Nirvana White and Nirvana Rose. The wearer can choose which one to wear depending on the memories she wishes to create that day.

For the makeup pro
7) Sephora Collection’s House of Lashes Lash Story Pro Edition

                         

False lashes are the essential finishing touch in every makeup artist’s routine, but they can be notoriously tricky for a makeup novice to apply. However, this collection of lashes will make you want to practice and practice until you get it right.  Each set is distinctive in the look it creates and will make a lasting impression regardless of the occasion. Buy this for the makeup enthusiast, or anyone else who’s been reluctant to try false lashes by themselves. Once they open the package, they’ll be itching to wear a different set everyday.

For the facial-addict

10) TATCHA’s Bestsellers Set

                  

Do you have that friend who loves going to the spa and knows about every new skincare craze there is? Well impress him or her with this collection of the four essential bestsellers from TATCHA, a brand created around centuries-old Japanese beauty secrets. This set embodies the four essential skincare steps: 1) Clean – Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil melts away makeup and dirt; 2) Exfoliate – Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder exfoliates and tones skin without harsh abrasives; 3) Moisturize – The Water Cream contains anti-aging ingredients that hydrates and refines skin without leaving any greasiness; and 4) Prep skin for makeup – Luminous Dewy Skin Mist can be used under makeup or throughout the day to refresh makeup or bare skin.

Bride Feature – Vanessa

We at Fancy Face Inc. always love seeing the professional photos of our past brides! Here are some of our favourite shots from Vanessa’s wedding (one of our Fall 2016 brides). We think she looked stunning and glamourous, so decided to do a blog feature on her. Her hair and makeup was done by Brittany Gray and Justyna of Fancy Face Inc. Scroll down to read more about her wedding day look and experience with us.

How did you decide on your wedding day hair and makeup look? 

A lot of searching on Pinterest and Instagram!  Also, I thought a lot about the theme that we were trying to achieve with our wedding (classic elegance) and the style my of my dress (lace ballgown) and tried to go for a look that would complement both.  I also wanted to make sure that my make-up/hair look would make me feel beautiful/comfortable for the day, and for me that meant a full glam look!  I have always been a make-up lover and wear a full face of make-up every day (Sephora is my second home!) so for me creating  glow to my skin through highlighting and a dramatic eye was my preference.  For my hair, I had a custom crystal encrusted headpiece made and wearing my hair down with soft romantic waves was the only way to go!  

What was the most memorable moment of your wedding?

When I saw my husband’s face as I walked down the aisle. ♥

How was your experience with Fancy Face Inc.?

Incredible!  I have had my make-up done by others in the past and only FancyFace has been able to achieve the glam look that I was after!!! The artists are all so talented, fun and easy to work with – and Brittany is nothing short of perfection.  She is truly understands her bride and takes the time to get to know them, thank you!  My bridesmaids all loved their make-up as well – the artists each made sure that the make-up was done according to the girls’ preferences, they all looked stunning!
