Several weeks ago, I checked out the Quo Holiday makeup preview for the 2015 Holiday season. With a full line of gift sets, makeup palettes and Christmas crackers, any of these items would be welcome under my Christmas tree! I personally loved the gold makeup brush set, complete with a sculptural gold clutch, and the adorable Christmas crackers that are ready to give as gifts for Secret Santa at the office.
The Quo Holiday makeup collection preview also explained the inspiration behind the products. The design team gets a lot of inspiration behind their famous palettes and gift sets. One of the ladies showed off her Moroccan-tile inspired Dannijo iPhone case, and then showed off how a palette (pictured above) emulated the design. I liked how all the products came in cute packaging, but offered a range of practical, on-trend colours. I loved the gold and hot pink colour palette for the Quo Holiday makeup collection, and the way all the products were already gift-wrapped. Perfect stocking stuffers!
The event featured a blogger’s breakfast at Cluny Bistro in the Distillery district. I loved the set up and all the delicious food and decadent desserts. The space was so feminine and pretty, it perfectly complimented the Quo Holiday makeup collection!
Afterwards, I met up with a beauty blogger, Assa from My Curves and Curls, and we took pictures of each other’s outfits. I know this is a summery outfit and kind of out of touch with reality outside my window (light snow is drifting as it’s -1 in Ottawa!), but I wanted to share the pictures from this pretty scenery. I also think that my H&M tribal print dress (similar dress here) can be worn throughout fall with some coloured tights, boots, and a cute denim jacket!
