Nail polish often looks uneven because the natural texture of my nails shows through. Can I fix this?
The visual appearance of our naked nails is actually a significant indicator of our internal health, so it’s important to pay attention to what’s up when they’re bare. It’s normal to have ridges on your nails that run up and down lengthwise, and these are not a huge cause for concern. Buffing nails prior to applying polish may seem like a logical solution, but this can actually weaken your nails. A better solution is to use a ridge filling base coat, such as Joe Fresh Ridge Filler ($6, at Joe Fresh), in order to create a smooth, even surface for polish application. A quick coat of this before you apply your colored polish will balance everything out and make ridges a thing of the past. Read more »

I always find statement lips pretty for Valentine’s Day, but when it comes to kissing… not so practical! How else can I rock a romantic look?
Statement lips definitely have a time and a place, , but if your Valentine’s Day plans include getting intimate they’re better saved for another night out. A perfectly understated yet glowing alternative is a soft pink cheek. Use Clarins Multi-Blush Cream Compact in “Rosewood” ($30, thebay.com) to lightly define and contour, blending onto cheekbones and sweeping through contours of cheeks with a synthetic brush. This cream blush has light-reflecting technology that allows it to function as a super-subtle highlight when applied on cheekbones and it also doubles as a lip colour if you desire a monochromatic look! For extra oomph, set the cream blush with a dusting of Clarins Opalescence Poudre Teint & Blush ($40, thebay.com), a holographic compact that contains a pink beige powder accented with coral and brown—which results in a natural blush that brightens the face without any chance of overpowering. No need to fear blush when it’s this flattering!

sensitive skin facials

For those of us with sensitive, reactive or downright finicky skin, winter can be especially challenging. Concerns such as eczema, dry skin and rosacea become even more apparent when dry air and harsh winds hit. While it’s tempting to hide your skin away until warmer weather returns, it’s actually an ideal time to seek out the services of a skincare professional.

That’s right: A little bit of pampering is just what sensitive skin needs during winter months. Spas and skincare lines alike offer a range of treatments that calm irritated skin and offer a well-deserved, relaxing experience. To help you find your next go-to facial, we’ve rounded up four notable treatments that are available across Canada. Read more »

I have fair skin and light eyes, which I would love to accentuate with makeup but I find that a lot of eyeliner shades look harsh. What colour would you recommend I use?
The last thing you want is a dash of much-too-dark liner that overwhelms the face. Softer variations of brown, charcoal and blue (think: taupe, slate blue or light-grey shades) can be very appealing options for anyone with fair features. Clarins Crayon Khôl in “Taupe” ($26, thebay.com) is bound to become a favourite due to its soft texture and built-in blending brush—meaning you can diffuse the colour as much or as little as you like, making it flexible for day and night use. Also consider adding a bit of iridescence or shimmer: makeup with light-reflective properties is excellent at brightening up appearances.

I’m going to be on some long-haul flights this summer and want to know how to prevent my lips from drying out and flaking. Any pointers?
Determining a steadfast method of avoiding full-fledged plane dehydration has been my objective for quite some time now! First, keep up on your fluids (which also means avoiding alcohol and caffeine) and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Then, bring in the heavy artillery: Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil ($49, sephora.ca). This oil is actually more akin to a gel formula and while it does leave your lips with a bit of shine when you apply it with the 24-karat gold-tip applicator, the benefits of this formula go far beyond the glossiness! The treatment oil contains 14 essential oils (including lavender, rose geranium and orange), 10 plant oils (all lipid-rich, such as jojoba, olive and sweet almond), as well as vitamins A, C, E and B5. This stacked formula is nothing to scoff at and it works wonders for in-flight lip moisturization! Read more »

Beauty Fix: Two tricks for saying goodbye to cellulite and more answers to your beauty questions

get rid of cellulite beauty fix

Every week our Beauty Fix columnist takes on your questions about makeup, skincare, hair and more. Have a beauty question we haven’t answered? Email us at beautyfix@fashionmagazine.com.

Are there any products out there that actually do get rid of cellulite? Or even the appearance of it?
This is a very common question that I’m certain many women want to know the answer to, especially this time of year. To put it simply, there is no technical way to get rid of cellulite. There are products and methods that can reduce the appearance of cellulite, but nothing will magically make cellulite disappear. I know, I know, that’s a lot of real talk to take in. That being said, working to reduce the appearance of cellulite is always worth a shot, right? Start in the shower by using Bliss FatGirlSlim Soap ($22, sephora.com), which is a nubby soap bar that contains caffeine, peppermint and grapefruit extracts to stimulate circulation and jojoba beads to exfoliate skin. Follow up with Clarins High Definition Body Lift ($68, sephora.com), a body treatment lotion that contains caffeine and patent-pending breakthrough ingredients Celosia Cristata Extract and Aquatic Mint Extract, which are plant extracts that target fatty tissue from developing cellulite in the first place. Ultimately, stimulation of the area is essential to tackling cellulite woes. Read more »
