Kailey & Michael Wed At The Kortright Centre

We're in love with Kailey and Michael's beautiful forest wedding at The Kortright Centre. Their entire wedding took place outdoors, followed by dancing under bistro lights and featuring a bonfire with s'mores for dessert.

Lushana Bale Photography took the most beautiful images of the couple, and truly captured the soft and romantic look of the wedding.

For the makeup and hair we did loose waves and pinned it to the side to compliment the flower crown and kept the makeup fresh and glowy - focusing on the eyes and lashes with a peachy nude lip. Makeup and Hair by Schulz Beauty.

The 5 Best Bronzers for a Spring Glow

Now that we've welcomed spring, when you are in between getting your glow tans, a great bronzer that fools everyone into thinking winter wasn't rough on your complexion tops the list of makeup bag updates. Below are our favourite liquid and powder formulas for getting a hint of natural, sun-kissed color.

Application Tips:

Bronzing Powder is used to create the illusion of sun-kissed skin. It shouldn't be used all over the face; just apply it to the areas that would be hit by the sun: the forehead, bridge of nose, tops of cheeks, and chin. Take what's left on the brush and blend onto the neck and decolleté so there is no line of demarcation.

1) Nars Bronzing Powder (Laguna/Casino)- creates the ultimate healthy glow. Diffused powders with golden shimmer create an all-over warmth or contour for the face perfect for creating or enhancing the look of tanned skin. 

  Use 'Laguna' for fairer skin tones and Casino for med/deeper skin tones.

2) Melanie Mills Hollywood - Gleam Body Radiance Body Radiance is the go to product for anyone who desires an instant natural glow. Not just for your face,  use this product to bronze the arms, legs, and chest. Available along with the Gleam Radiance Dust Powder in studio at Schulz Makeup & Beauty Studio.

  Y  ou can choose your finish, there are 4 different shades, all of which will blend in effortlessly on all skin tones.

3) MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Give Me Sun! - We love MAC's mineralize line, a luxurious slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex & Vitamin E that gives a natural, dimensional finish.  

 Use the shade 'Medium Dark' for fair skin tones vs. GIve Me Sun for med/deeper skin tones.

4) Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer in Chocolate - The perfect med. toned matte bronzer. You can layer and build the colour up depending on the look you're going for (natural light glow to a deeper tan). Oh and this smells like Chocolate :)  

 Swipe a little Chocolate Soleil into the crease to contour and give the eyes a lift as well.

5) Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer  - A cult favourite and artist staple - this award winning matte bronzer provides natural looking colour to flatter any skin tone. Without any shine or shimmer, this matte bronzer doubles its purpose and can be used for contouring, sculpting and defining features. 

 Bestselling Hoola bronzing powder is now available in a liquid formula as well.

Notable’s Young Entrepreneur Feature

Schulz Beauty and founder Jennifer Schulz was recently featured as Today's Notable Entrepreneur on  Notable.ca. Read the full interview here to learn more about us, here are some highlights of the interview: 

 

Describe what you do in less than 140 characters. Go.
We make women glow gorgeous. Schulz Make-up + Beauty Studio is the first of its kind in Toronto, an intimate and glamorous place to make one feel their best.

We offer make-up, custom spray tanning and hairstyling for every occasion. We also boast Toronto’s first sunless (UV-Free) studio, providing our clients with a natural looking glow without exposure to harmful rays.

 

What was the inspiration for your career route?
I worked many years as a corporate accountant but my passion was always make-up and making people look and feel their best.  After receiving my CA designation I decided to go to make-up school and learn from the best. While I was living in Vancouver, I worked as an accountant full-time and was freelancing as a makeup artist and hairstylist in the evenings and weekends.

I realized that a woman shouldn’t have to wait for her big day or a special occasion to be pampered and to get her make-up done. When I moved to Toronto, after years of juggling my day-job as an accountant and evenings/weekends as a make-up artist, I decided to open my own place and Schulz Make-up + Beauty Studio was born. I wanted to create a place where women can go and be made to feel beautiful, anytime.

Also, coming from Vancouver, where there are many options to get a great spray tan, I was shocked how hard it was to find somewhere to get one in Toronto. I felt there was a need for a beautiful place to get a natural glow throughout the year, especially with the dangers of using a tanning bed.

 

Where is your favourite place to wine/dine in your city and why? 

King West since there are tons of great restaurants and bars and it's on my front doorstep. Bar Buca for snacks, and the Mafalde ai Funghi Pasta at Gusto 101 is so good I have dreams about it.
 

What gives you the greatest FOMO?


Having to wake up super early every Saturday during the busy season for weddings (May to October) while everyone else is sleeping in.

 

What's your guiltiest pleasure? 


White wine and trashy reality TV (hello, Real Housewives).

 

What’s something you wish you didn’t spend so much money on? What’s something you wish you spent more on?


Make-up! Or maybe I wish that make-up wasn’t so expensive… but it’s product testing, right?

I wish I could spend more money on travel and carving out time to get away on extended trips.

New Years Make-up Ideas and Inspiration!

Look your best for the biggest night of the year! Here are few ideas for your New Years Eve glam:

1)      Keep the eyes simple with some shimmery lids and/or winged liner,  instead let your lips steal the show. From a bright red to juicy berry tone, there's a flattering option to suite every skin tone.

 

Get the look w/ some of our favourite reds: MAC Lady Danger lipstick (brighter, warm red), MAC Ruby Woo, NARS Jungle Red

2) Amp up your traditional smokey eye with some Metallics, when else are you going to get away with wearing a sparkly dress with similar tones on your eyes? Pair your metallic hues with lush lashes and barely-there lips to keep the eyes the focus and the rest of the face minimal.

3) Use this night to step out of your make-up comfort zone and rock a more risque-winged liner. Whether elongated or subtle, a cat eye is always flattering and what better night to test it out.

Book your New Years Eve glam now to end 2015 with a beautiful bang!

xoxo, Jen and Grace

Bobbi Brown Universal Lip PaletteOne of Sephora’s exclusive limited edition Holiday 2015 make-up items is the Bobbi Brown Holiday 2015 Lip Palette. This winning gift offers a mix of 12 nude, bright, and bold shades that can be worn alone, mixed, or layered to create virtually any look.

Fresh: Sugar Lip Party Favors - A fool-proof gift that any woman can use are these Fresh essentials. The Sugar Lip Polish is a must have for kissable lips, especially in the harsh winter; it gently exfoliates and conditions, while the lip treatments deliver nourishment and a subtle colour. These 5 items - which range in colour from bright to bold, are amazing as they glide on easily and will match any skin tone. It’s tempting not to scoop one up for yourself at the same time! ($45 CDN at Sephora)

Make Up Forever: Artist Palette Volume 1 (Nudes ) - This convenient eye-shadow palette has 9 must-have Artist Shadow formulas in neutral tones. Personally we think these colours are to die for – highly pigmented, the perfect amount of shimmer, and highly-blendable. You can never go wrong with neutral tones as well! We recommend this palette over the more colourful Volume 2 palette, since it's also great for those new to makeup. Whether you’re creating a chic, natural look or a smoky-bronzed look, this palette will be your go-to and suitable for all skin tones. ($49 CDN at Sephora)

Deborah Lippman: Dressed to the Nines’ Nail Colour Collection – Create the perfect holiday manicure with this set of Deborah Lippman nail polishes. With 9 gorgeous shades in this limited edition collection, you’ll always have a shade to match each season. Stay polished all year round, whether it’s a girls night out in the spring or a romantic winter date night. ($63 CDN Nordstrom)

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Set – Ok this set may not be as realistic of a holiday gift but we had to include this epic lipstick collection called Lips & Boys. With over 10 colour families, this 50-shade set comes with a hefty price tag of $1,950 USD. But, can we just admire the beauty that is Tom Ford lipsticks below? For the record you can totally buy just one of the lipsticks at ($55 at Holts), or divide the mini lipsticks among friends and family for birthdays and holidays year-round.

*For those GTA girls who’ve ever dreamed about having Drake on your lips.. Tom Ford released a “Drake” shade as a part of the collection 😉

Last but not least, a gift certificate for a beauty service at Schulz Make-up & Beauty Studio makes for the perfect customizable gift. Whether you want to treat a girlfriend to a make-up application/hair styling, or get your girls together to enjoy the festive season! Getting all glammed up is always in season. Contact us to purchase one! 🎁

Happy Holidays!
