Win a $50 Gift Card From Shoppers Drug Mart

While it may be fun to play and create your own makeup looks for any and every occasion, sometimes it’s just convenient and hassle free to simply sit back and let the experts do their magic.

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing the Shoppers Drug Mart makeup services at the PATH in Toronto located in the Royal Bank Plaza, to do just that. As someone who seldom gets her makeup done by beauty expert, it was something I have to recommend.

The instant I walked into the Shoppers Drug Mart, the ladies at the makeup counter cheerfully welcomed me into the store as I began carefully looking through the countless displays of beauty products.

The great thing about Shoppers Drug Mart is their selection of brands from Essence to Christian Dior and everything in between. I wasn’t sure as yet what look I wanted the beauty expert to create, but I wanted something different!

And then begins my full-face makeover.

Once the Beauty Boutique Manager, Chelyn welcomed me into the store, I quickly met Ivana the Beauty Boutique Expert who would be doing my makeup application. She asked me several questions to better help create the look I wanted such as, what products I prefer, what occasion it was for, and my general style.

Ivana began with some great products to prep my skin for the makeup. She used Nuxe Hydra Mask, Avene Serum as well as Dior Hydra Lotion and Glow Maximizer. Ivana thought that if I hadn’t tried enough Dior products, that now was the time, and I couldn’t have agreed more.

We moved onto the makeup and I fell in love with Dior’s Nude Foundation. It gave moderate coverage but felt soft as if I had no makeup on at all. I don’t usually wear dramatic eye makeup and seldom include eyeshadow in my makeup routine but Ivana used Clinique’s Lid Smoothies in Sassy Fras and Seventh and then added Dior eyeshadow on the creases for a daytime smokey look. I was thrilled to see her use Benefit’s Push Up Liner, which gives the ideal cat eye and perfectly compliments the Dior Iconic Serum & Mascara.

Ivana must have known me when she suggested a vibrant fuchsia lip. She lined and filled in my lips with Lise Watier lip liner in fuchsia and paired it with Schseido Lipstick in RS 320. My final result was a soft but dramatic look that could have easily been taken from work to play, which was where I was headed.



For a makeup makeover with Shoppers Drug Mart, you just have to call the store ahead of time and book an appointment with a Boutique Expert. You also don’t need to spend an arm and a leg to get your desired look, rather they only request that you purchase two products, whether it be a product they used or maybe you need to stock up on one of your favourite items!

Be sure to head to the Royal Bank Plaza Shoppers Drug Mart located in the Toronto PATH as the staff there is amazing and you can easily get a makeover when you’re on the go or on your way out with friends after a work day.

Convenience at its best!
