Carine Roitfeld has not just been working on her new fashion magazine! This stylist has been collaborating a limited-edition collection with Mac Cosmetics this fall. Carine is known for her dramatic smoky eye and sultry look, so we can kind of see where this collection with be headed. She has helped in every aspect of making this from the packaging to the containers. This collection will be launched as of September 6th with everything else going on in Toronto like Fashion Nigh Out and the Toronto International Film Festival. As a former Make-up artist I can’t wait to check out this Limited-edition collection. Roitfelds collection ad campaign was shot by Mario Sorrentiso, so make sure to get out Sept and get something and enjoy.
When I arrived to the Rock-it Promotions Holiday Preview the main thing that caught my eye was Consonant skin care. This Organic skin care line I have been starting to hear a lot about made me interested so I wanted to try it. The lovely ladies at Rock-it Promotions were ever so gracious to send me the ultra-moisturizing organic face cream for dry skin and the organic foaming face wash. I am usually a skeptical when a skin care product says organic because I have really sensitive skin that gets really irritated from perfumes and products that can get overly abrasive to my skin. I have been using both products for over a week now and they have been working great. They have not made my face red or irritated and kept my skin clear. The lotion can make your face a little oily but all in all they are great products. I will keep using them and can’t wait to try more consonant products.
This non-greasy formula absorbs quickly while elevated levels of Cassia Angustifolia Seed Extract ensure long lasting hydration. Grape Seed Oil is a great antioxidant that helps protect skin from future damage. The result is smoother, more radiant and hydrated skin from the very first use.
Face Wash is a gentle yet effective cleanser, packed with nourishing botanicals like teatree oil and grapeseed oil to help hydrate skin, eliminate uneven skin tones and fight blemishes. pH balanced, you don’t need a toner.

Lucian Matis opened Fall/Winter 2012 Fashion week off site at the Fairmount Royal York hotel. As guests arrived they were treated to champagne while they waited for the magical doors to open and we would all be seated. While we were taking our seats I noticed that the atmosphere was high in energy because everyone knew something amazing was about to start. The show was set up to such a large scale it reminded me of Marchesa, the first show I attended years ago. The doors opened on our left, amazing music blaring from the speakers and Lucian’s brilliant work started strutting down the catwalk. He started off with a theme that carried off in the week with Bird feathers. Other designers had tried pulling it off but not as well as Lucian!
“The lines in nature can travel, swirl and conjoin. These natural patterns are nature’s expression and purpose,” explained Matis.,”My designs have adapted and evolved through colors and shapes; the grace in movement which this planet and nature must play out from minute to minute, birth to death and, most importantly, the beauty in attraction.”
This collection by far was the best work I have seen Matis put down the runway, also better than most of Fashion week as well. All black attire dripping with amazing hand woven detail and feathers, there was something for every woman and all kinds of different occasions. Lots of great stuff that I would use for my clients for Red carpets, Balls etc.… I styled one of my clients Gabrielle Miller in Lucian Matis and brought her to the show she looked dashing and even ended up in the Toronto Sun. (See below) Lucian is a Toronto based designer international known for his amazing work after he appeared on the design show Project Runway Canada.
