Yorkville's Augustina and Auggie

During our many shopping adventures in Toronto, we had never visited 'Augustina' before. The delightful luxe boutique is located just off the beaten path in the Yorkville neighborhood. Located along a charming cobblestone laneway, the store invited Toronto Is Fashion to check out their merchandise, and to help celebrate the one year anniversary of their neighboring 'Auggie' location; a high-end destination for children and toddlers.We were surprised at first to see so many beautiful pieces, that were quickly being added to our mental checklists for holiday gifts, until we met Augustina owner Christina Burgess. The stylish and delightful Christina gave us a tour of the digs and explained to us how she and her team carefully curate their selection of jewelery, handbags, shoes, fragrances and clothing. Her team at Augustina work hard at making sure what you see in the store is unique and beautiful, selling gorgeous items you'd be hard pressed to find else where in the city.Our favorite items in the store were the playful necklace charms (featuring various animals in gold, copper and silvers), purses from Canadian designers that are not only roomy enough for all your must have items but also on par with upcoming Spring trends, and their selection of knitted hats chosen from a retailer in Brooklyn.Be sure to check out their online boutique and take advantage of free shipping and complimentary gift wrapping, and if your in the city make this a definite shopping stop! Check out the pictures, and the Auggie review, after the page break.
If your a mom to be, a mom already, or are racking your brains out trying to find a unique baby shower gift, 'Auggie' has your answer. From art work, clothing, adorable and stylish shoes, playthings and everything in between the items in Auggie are held to the same scrupulous standards as their neighbour Augustina. We fell in love with the 'Winne the Pooh' art work, one of a kind bedding and crocheted globe.  Check out some pictures of the store and some of the things they have to offer below.

Kim Kardashian has transformed herself from a closet organizer and stylist to a multimillion-dollar brand. If Google’s most recent list of the most searched people is any indication, she’s one of the most famous people in the world.

Wear it dry, and you’ve got your standard dusting of color—classic and predictable (in a good way). But wet! Wearing it wet opens a whole new world of opportunity. “What you’re doing is bringing out the pigmented nature of the shadow,” makeup artist Vincent Oquendo says. “Whenever I wet an eye shadow, it’s when I really want it to pop—but it really has to be a special kind of product to be able to blend after it sets. Because a lot of the times when it sets, you get streaking.” Nobody wants that. In order to avoid any wet shadow mishaps, follow these guidelines:

First, go with the obvious: any eye shadow labeled wet-to-dry. The Nars Dual-Intensity line is the standout—the singles come in 12 different shimmery shades, and there’s a corresponding brush (then there’s the newly released Dual Intensity Blush line, which was all over Fashion Week—but that’s a product for another post). Burberry also makes a few very versatile shades specifically for this in their Wet & Dry Silk Shadows. And the technique-specific eye shadow category isn’t just a ploy to get you to buy more product. “You can’t just use any eye shadow for this,” Vincent says. “Certain ones will harden up on top and become unusable because they’re not made for this.”

Baked shadows are also fair game—we’re fans of Laura Mercier’s Baked Eye Colour Wet/Dry and Lorac’s Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in particular.

For more advanced players, Vincent suggests moving on to straight pigment (MAC or even OCC’s Pure Cosmetic Pigments). With the added moisture, they’ll become easier to layer with other products. For a look with more depth, try using a cream shadow as a based before swiping with a wet powder shadow. “It’s like insurance,” Vincent says. “You’re doubling your wearability.

This all depends on exactly what you want to do. “Mind the resistance,” Vincent says, particularly if you’re looking for uniform color across the lid. “I tend to recommend a blender brush, which is the brush that looks like a feather duster. If you do it with a stiff brush, you’re defeating yourself before you even start. The joy of a wet-to-dry is you have to get it right amount of product loaded up, and then it blends itself. If the brush is too stiff, it will leave the shadow streaky and then much harder to control.”

However, if tightlining or waterlining is in the cards, a much thinner brush is required accordingly.

Do not, repeat, do not put eye drops, water, or any other sort of liquid directly on your eye shadow. This’ll screw up your product for later use. “Lately, I’ve been wetting the brush with the Glossier Soothing Face Mist, but Evian Mineral Water Spray is good for sensitive eyes,” Vincent says. If the top of your powder does get a little hardened by wet application, there’s a trick to remove it: Get a clean mascara spoolie and “exfoliate” your compact, Vincent recommends. This won’t crack the compact and will make it ready to go once more.
