Make-up With Your Mom
Here are the season’s very best makeup palettes – for any budget! Bonus: Presented with a bouquet of peonies, any one of them makes a perfect Mother’s Day gift.
The luxe-looking jade-inspired packaging of the Quo Eye Shadow Trio ($15 at Pharmaprix) is to our vanity what the brightening shades (boosted with vitamin E and jojoba see oil) are to our face: An instant pick-me-up! Pharmaprix, 1 Place Ville Marie, 514-866-9881, www.pharmaprix.ca
Because a glow-y complexion is decidedly in and tanning is obviously out, we’re sweeping on some sunshine with Lise Watier Summer Sunset Bronzing Powder ($35 at Lise Watier counters). We especially love the bright pink shade: Perfect for a bolder look. www.lisewatier.com
The six shades inside the limited edition Guerlain Météorites Perles d’Azure ($66 at Guerlain counters) correct and even out skin tone while the shades on display in the Pucci-designed packaging are an always-welcome hint of luxury. The Bay, 585 Ste-Catherine St. W., 514-281-4422 —Christine Laroche
