H&M's Buy Design Shopping Event

Source:  
Last week, H&M helped kick-off the Wear White 4 Windfall Day by hosting 'Buy Design', a nighttime shopping event that was in support of Windfall. The evening started with guests getting to shop the H&M Bloor Street location after-hours, and were able to get the spring fashions at a discounted price. Guests were shopping and chatting while enjoying food, drinks and music. The night was a big success and brought out a lot of people and media to cover the event. We both had a great time, a special thanks goes out to Emily and the H&M team.Check out pictures from the event below.

Source: This weekend marked the start of Design Week with the Interior Design Show taking place at The Toronto Convention Center. This was the 13th year of the show, which is Canada's largest contemporary design fair. Richard and I walked the exhibits and snapped a few photos that are posted below. With the Globe and Mail opening gala, the success of IDS and LG Fashion week two months away, the future of design for Canada, Toronto specifically, is looking good.

Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala
On Thursday night, Toronto Is Fashion was given the opportunity to attend the Globe and Mail's official opening soiree for the Interior Design Show 2011.Fashion and interior design have gone hand-in-hand for years, and the gala proved to be a reflection of this as the event space quickly became a who's who of the fashion and design scenes. Fashion Television's Jeanne Beker, Flare Magazine's editor-in-chief Lisa Tant, socialite Suzanne Rogers and Realtor Jennifer Payette mingled with the heavy hitters of the interior design world including Steven Sabados and Chris Hyndman, Sarah Richardson and Alfred Sung. We were also delighted to meet other Toronto personalities that only a show like IDS can bring together. Georgia and Susanne, better known as The Wine Ladies, were a thrill to finally meet as we discussed purses and the shows exhibits. Love It or List It designer Hilary Farr was another person we were happy to unexpectedly meet during the evening.Although it was a little cold outside, it didn't stop guests from looking sharp and wearing some great dresses, although there was a bit of overkill on the Lanvin for H&M. Check out our pictures from the event below, and check back for our coverage of the rest of IDS 11.[caption id="attachment_10624" align="aligncenter" width="399"]Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala Lisa Tant Flare Magazine's Lisa Tant was tweeting her favorite items throughout the night[/caption][caption id="attachment_10622" align="aligncenter" width="399"]Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala Sarah Richardson And Marc got to meet one of his HGTV favorites, Sarah Richardson[/caption][caption id="attachment_10623" align="aligncenter" width="373"]Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala Hilary Farr Richard was happy to meet Love It or List It's Hilary Farr, which is his favourite show.[/caption][caption id="attachment_10621" align="aligncenter" width="399"]Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala Barbara Milner and Michelle Mawby The Marilyn Dennis Show producer Barbara Milner and Interior Designer Michelle Mawby, were all giggles while helping make delicious waffles[/caption][caption id="attachment_10620" align="aligncenter" width="399"]Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala Steven Sabados and Chris Hyndman Design duo and CBC hosts Steven Sabados and Chris Hyndman strike a pose in the media lounge.[/caption][caption id="attachment_10619" align="aligncenter" width="600"]Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala ‘The Wine Ladies’ Georgia and Susanne and Biko Beauttah ‘The Wine Ladies’ Georgia and Susanne talk purses with Toronto stylist Biko Beauttah[/caption][caption id="attachment_10617" align="aligncenter" width="600"]Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala NOW Magazine style editor Andrew Sardone and designer Philip Sparks NOW Magazine style editor Andrew Sardone (left) and designer Philip Sparks (right) and a fashionable guest[/caption][caption id="attachment_10618" align="aligncenter" width="600"]Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala Audi Canada president and CEO Martin Sander and IDS co-founder Shauna Levy IDS co-founder Shauna Levy helps present some hot wheels with Audi Canada president and CEO Martin Sander[/caption]Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala 2Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala 3Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala 4Toronto Is Fashion - IDS11 Opening Gala 5

Both girls look absolutely ah-mazing as they celebrated the launch of Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 with Chrissy’s husband John Legend last night. Model Chrissy, 29, was wearing a pair of *very* saucy hot pants.

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:

Product

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.

Brush
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.

Liquid
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.
