Last Wednesday, I attended the #LauderLovesCanada Breakfast Event thrown by the amazing Dave Lackie.

Guests were greeted by the Estee Lauder team who outlined the details of the day. There was lots to enjoy! Makeup was everywhere and you could get a make-over by the professional Lauder team. There was also a delictable candy station, a handsome mountie to take photos with, and an absolutely stunning dining area that over looked the CN Tower.

Everyone was flocking to the delicious candy station, I personally loved the touch of adding Canadian themed sugar cookies. There was also fruit juice blends handed out. The dining room was so perfectly decorated.

The dining hall was filled with photos of Estee’s trip to Canada in 1970 for her launch of a Canadian beauty line. The event was a tribute to that first visit and it was all about how Estée Loves Canada – everything was in red in white. The timing was perfect since it was only a few days before Canada Day!

The largest bottle of Night Repair I’ve ever seen! There was also tons of makeup everywhere.

The breakfast was delicious, we started off with a yogurt and strawberry puree, with delictable granola. You had an option for the second course and I decided on the the delicious brioche French toast.

During breakfast we enjoyed a talk with Philippe Warnery, General Manager, Canada affiliate of Estee Lauder Companies. He described the first time Estee Lauder came to Canada and how she created a beauty line that was Canadian focused.  How special is that! I love that Estée Lauder viewed us Canadians uniquely and created a whole make-up line designed specifically with them us mind. We were the first international venture for Estée Lauder as a brand! We saw the look of the 1970s that Estée created and new a modern twist for the Canadian today.

I had to get a shot with the CN Tower behind me. The Models are showcasing the looks; on the left is the Modern Classic look and on the right is the 1970’s look.

Each guest left with an incredible gift bag full of Estee Lauder products to re-create the looks at home.

I’ve already started playing with the products! Of course, Advanced Night Repair is one of my faves, so I’m excited to use the Eye repair too. I also love the eye liner pencil. It’s very soft and dries quickly that makes it unmovable. If you want to soften up the look you can smudge it out with the rubber tip on the other side.

A few tricks I learned from the makeup experts;

1.Use brown liner on the lower lash line to soften up a dramatic eye-look, they said it looks amazing especially if you wear black liner on the top lid.

2.Take your favourite serum, they used advanced night repair, rub it in between your hands to warm up and then dab on top of your skin. If you do this on top of your makeup, it acts as finishing primer to lock your make-up in place and give you a dewy, even finish.

This was such an amazing day! Thanks again to Dave Lackie and Estée Lauder for putting together this spectacular event!

Lots of Luv,
