I was excited to see this kind of event happening in Calgary, as we don't see a whole lot of beauty events going on! Dave Lackie gave a free presentation on the hot trends from the runways of Fashion Week from around the world!
While the event itself was free, spacing was limited so you did have to book your tickets in advance. I was really impressed - this was the amazing swag bag you got for attending! There is 2 full size mascaras, a few skincare products, lots of fragrances to try, and a big bag to hold it all in!
The presentation was fun - and went through each fashion week and what designers focused on what looks! I thought it was fun to get a sneak peek at what products Dave loved and would be focusing on during his Cityline taping the following week!
The 3 stand-out trends for the Fall Catwalk Beauty Trend report are:
- Black lipstick! Pair this bold look with a really natural face and eye look to make the colour really pop!
- Vampire Eyes - bold dark liner and smoky eyes! The opposite of the black lipstick - pair this look with a neutral lip for a bold look.
- Bold Red lips! This was the classic red lipstick look with a few twists - glitter rid, ombre red, etc. But all the looks kept the red lipstick as the main focal point.
I had fun at the event, and I would love to see more beauty events like this happen for us beauty lover's here in Calgary!
