30 Days of Beauty With Shoppers Drug Mart

When I was a teenager, I loved to sit on my bed with a little mirror and practice applying makeup. I would do a full smoky eye, soft pink cheeks and a red lipstick. My hair was quite blonde then and my style icon was Marilyn Monroe (the inspiration for my red lipstick!).

These days I don't have as much time to play around with makeup. In fact, I usually apply it quickly before heading out the door. That's sort of a shame, because when I put a bit more time and effort into my makeup I always feel good about it. And I still love the feeling of applying a new lipstick or eyeshadow in a fun, vibrant colour.

If you are in the mood to play around with some new colours (and which of us girls isn't?), now is the perfect time. Visit your local Shoppers Drug Mart from now until September 14 for the 4th annual 30 Days of Beauty event. To provide you with beauty inspiration, Shoppers Drug Mart is sharing 30 Fabulous Looks through makeover videos, instructional "how-to's" and pictures in-store and online. You can even see behind-the-scenes videos on

Summer is the perfect time to experiment with colour. A nude or melon lip is just the thing for a day at the beach. A vivid pink, strong red or vibrant tangerine lip (as seen on celebs like Cameron Diaz) can take you from a day of sightseeing to an evening patio dinner. Personally, I'm happy that purple is a strong makeup trend for 2014, because lilacs and lavenders are my favourite eyeshadow colours for my hazel eyes. Another trend is neon orange lips, which the brave among us can pair with vivid yellow nails. White eyeliner is a trend too, but one that this pale girl will not be sporting!

With the astounding array of beauty products available at Shoppers Drug Mart, you're sure to find the right colours and formulations for you. Be sure to take advantage of some free expert guidance too, by booking a free 5-minute in-store makeover. 30 Days of Beauty is the biggest beauty event of the year at Shoppers Drug Mart, so take advantage!
