Doing TIFF '14 in style with all the amazing brands at Essentials Lounge!

All the best brands came out to play at the Essentials Lounge for TIFF 2014 and did their very best to make us all look and feel beautiful! Which starts with the hair of course - Schwarzkopf Professional Essential Looks Artist, Joey Marchese was on hand to pouf up my TIFF-tired locks - it's amazing what a little OSIS+ Session Label Dust It Flex and the skills of a professional can do!
Mini peels from SkinCeuticals had everyone's skin glowing - but first you had to stick your head in the scary device that lets you see how remiss you've been applying sunscreen - you can actually see the dark patches under the skin that will eventually make their way to the surface so prevention is key - and this reminds me that it's a great time to add SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF back to my routine!
The folks from Viviscal and Emjoi were on hand with our much love MICRO Pedi as well as their newest innovation, the MICRO Nail - an electric nail polisher which buffs and shines nails to reveal naturally shiny nails in seconds. Great for under a manicure to help nail polish glide on effortlessly or to give nails a polished effect if you are a non-lacquer wearer - the finish lasts up to 2 weeks.
The girls need to be comfortable and look good during TIFF too which is made much easier with a Modern T-Shirt Bra from Calvin Klein - it has lightweight memory foam that contour to your shape for ultimate comfort and is invisible under clothing - it comes in a great cocoa colour which is a lot more fun then boring beige or basic black (but you can have those too if you like)!
Rockport was showing off what's new and exciting for fall and I'm totally in love with the cranberry booties pictured!
It was Tarte as far as the eye could see - so many pretty products and shades! Since I had freshly clean and glowing skin from my facial I settled for a statement lip with LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint in Lively - a hot pink - with a peppermint scent that is so clean and fresh it actually makes me not want to eat (bonus) but with a stay-put colour that means I can if I want/need to!
Nothing finishes and polishes a look like a cleaned up brow or fluttery false lashes from our friends at Winks Eyelash Boutique!
My favourite thing about the lounge is seeing the brands and products I already love like Kosmea Facial Cleansing Wipes...
and discovering things I've never even heard of before - like the Powerocks Flash Magicstick portable power bank that adds 1-2 full phone charges to your mobile life, an LED flashlight for emergencies, and is small enough to easily fit in a purse Pull it out, charge up your phone, put it away, and continue with your day - what will they think of next?!
