Smoky Eyes Dos and Don'ts for Women Over Age 40

Scarlett Ballantyne | November 19, 2015 | Canada Style
outh lends itself to a heavier, more dramatic and sparkly eye, but the average mother that wants to learn how to do it for a night out, does not want to look like an overgrown Avril Lavigne with a messy-looking eye! There are lots of older women that still want to look trendy, but can't pull off that dark and glittery look.

What To Do With All The Makeup You Never Wear

Scarlett Ballantyne | November 4, 2015 | Canada Style
Are you a makeup hoarder? If you like makeup and have even done a little bit of experimenting, then you probably are! The thing about makeup is that often we buy things at the suggestion of others, from the sales person at a local beauty counter, or even on a whim online. Then we get it home and don't know what to do with it, or it looks different when we apply it ourselves.

Deepa Mehta Made a Gangster Film About Vancouver. Here's Why.

Jugni Style | October 16, 2015 | Canada British Columbia
The loud styling makes the film instantly iconic, especially in casting style icon Waris Ahluwahlia as Manny, the trigger-happy joker of the gang and the one daring enough to pull off neon pink and bright turquoise suits. Mehta wanted to do more than present their brash styling; she wanted to shatter stereotypes of Sikh characters who often play cabbies or doctors on screen.

My Open Love Letter to American Apparel

Jedannah Vieira | October 15, 2015 | Canada Style
American Apparel's energy and fashion risk-taking was refreshing, and I would venture to say that it revived a love for long-lost styles that have since been adopted and copied by many fast-fashion retailers. Blatant dare-to-dream mentality and unabated vision is so hard to come by these days. Whatever happens, American Apparel is an example of what to do.

Barbara Aleks Hecht | October 13, 2015 | Canada Style
While shopping to create and add to this perfectly curated wardrobe might be a casual pastime to some, to me, it's serious business. Shopping with a plan always starts before you leave the house, mainly in your closet. That's where you want to take stock of your wardrobe to see what you have and what you're missing.

Sacha DeVoretz | October 7, 2015 | Canada Style
The only thing that keeps me wearing skirts in the winter when it is cold and wet, are tights. Leggings are great too. Sometimes, I will ride my bike in my leggings and then when I arrive to a restaurant throw on a skirt over the leggings and I am good for dinner or a night out.
