Victoria's Secret Anniversary With Celebrity Makeup Artist Julie Harris and Giveaway Winners Announced!


A year ago Victoria's Secret opened their first Canadian store in the massive West Edmonton Mall which is just a short drive away from my house. (Lucky me!) Hundreds of excited women and their equally elated boyfriends/husbands lined up for hours outside the store that day to get their hands on some sexy, coveted lingerie that was previously only available to Canadians if they crossed the border or ordered through the VS catalog. To celebrate their one year anniversary last week, Victoria's Secret offered complimentary makeovers with Canadian-born Celebrity Makeup Artist Julie Harris and her talented team. I was so excited to meet Julie and have her "make me over" (she used a bronze Victoria's Secret eye shadow palette on my eyes and a bright pink VS lipstick called 'Hot Spot' on my lips which I loved), grill her on products she likes to use and ask her about her amazing career. And when I say amazing I mean AMAZING. Since moving from Toronto to New York 12 years ago, she has racked up a client list that includes celebrities like Kate Hudson, Demi Moore, Madonna, Jessica Alba, Eva Mendes, Anne Hathaway, Kim Kardashian and Julianne Moore, just to name a few! Julie has also worked on ad campaigns for designers like Prada, Dolce & Gabanna and Valentino and has perfected the pouts of the Victoria's Secret Angels. Take a look at some of the flawless faces she created below:








Gorgeous, right?? I asked Julie who her most memorable client was and after contemplating for just a moment she said, "Goldie Hawn". She's been a huge fan of hers since seeing the movie ‘Private Benjamin,’ which Goldie starred in years ago. It was surreal for her, she said, entering Goldie’s house to do her makeup. I can’t imagine! That would be like me walking into Meryl Streep’s house to give her a Pilates lesson. I’d die! 

Congratulations to Andrea of Northern Style Journal and Leah of Sifting Thoughts for winning my Prtty Peaushun Giveaway! I will be contacting you for your addresses shortly. Thank you to everyone who entered and thank you to Prtty Peaushun for sponsoring this giveaway!
