TREND REPORT: AWARD SEASON

Posted on

GET THE RED CARPET LOOK

Award season is amongst us! We’re well under way as the Golden Globes recently passed, giving us a sneak peak at what will be trending on the red carpet this year. We’ve pulled some of our favourite items so you can stay on-trend and rock these looks at your own events!

 

STATEMENT EARRINGS

We saw a lot of gorgeous earrings drawing attention to some of the hottest celebrities so far this month. Statement earrings are a great alternative for adding drama to an otherwise tame outfit. Check out these bold and beautiful Swarovski earrings that will help you glam up for any event (from left to right):

  1. Multi- Coloured Highness Pierced Earring Set (Reg $349 CAD)
  2. Airy Pierced Earrings with Mixed Plating ($149 CAD)
  3. Multi- Coloured Helen Clip Earrings ($129 CAD)

 

BOLD RED LIPS

Nothing is as classic as a beautiful red lip on the red carpet. These lipsticks come in multiple shades, including, of course, a matte lipstick to ensure full and lasting coverage (completely necessary for a long night)! Take a look at which lipsticks you should bring for your next night out (from left to right):

  1. Annabelle Cosmetics’ BigShow Matte Liquid Lipstick ($9.95 CAD)
  2. Lise Watier’s Rouge Intense Supreme Lipstick ($27 CAD)
  3. Marcelle Cosmetics’ Rouge Xpression Lipstick  ($11.95 CAD)

 

SLEEK UP-DOS

A vibrant or dark contrasting lip has often been paired with a sleek and elegant up-do! With any hairstyle, the products you use are crucial to ensure smooth strands, full body, and a soft hold! These new OGX Beauty Stylers are perfect for all your hair needs before a big event (from left to right):

  1. Bodifying Bamboo Fiber Full Root Boosting Spray Mousse
  2. Smoothing and Shea Sleek Smooth Style Spray

We’ve rounded up some of our favourite products that will make this Valentine’s Day your best one yet…

TBT to Halloween Inside NKPR

Posted on

 

When witches go riding and black cats are seen…the moon laughs and whispers, “ti’s near Halloween!

It’s that spooky time of year again…when witches casually walk down the hallway, ghosts nonchalantly fly by on streetcars, and chocolate is available in the masses. Inside NKPR, our favourite part of Halloween isn’t always the trendy new costumes…instead it’s often the hilarity of looking back at past Halloween costumes.

Whether it was the last-minute thrown-together-with-your-mother’s-jewelry kind, or a seriously thought-out I-had-this-planned-since-last-year kind of costume, we can’t get enough laughs out of our old costumes. In honour of the big day tomorrow, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite TBT Halloween costumes…
