I will admit my make-up techniques can be dated.  Waaaaay back in the day I did a bit of modeling, which means I did a lot of make-up training and a few professional photos. Keep in mind that was 1980s make-up training... Thankfully I no longer wear that 80s Knots Landing overdone multi-colored eye shadow look.  And I think I have done a good job of keeping my look reasonably fresh over the years. But I find it challenging to stay current and do something a little different for occasions like a night out with my girlfriends, date night at the opera or an outdoor wedding.

Shoppers Drug Mart 30 Days of Beauty

Each day from August 17th through September 15th Shoppers Drug Mart will highlight a look for a different occasion - complete with video instructions and product recommendations. That means there will be a total of 30 different ideas to keep your creative juices flowing for a while.  You can find the daily looks with their instructional how-to's in-store or online at 30daysofbeauty.ca.

Want to try a dark red lip? Or a smoky eye?

If you aren't sure you can tackle a look yourself, visit your local Shoppers Drugs Mart to book a free 5-minute makeover and ask for your favourite 30 Days of Beauty look. They will help take all the guess work out of it for you. I will likely be stopping by to get some advice on that smoky eye (above right). Every time I try it I end up looking like a raccoon or worse a cougar!

There will also be 1-day, as well as month-long campaign, offers from over 50 participating beauty brands. Be sure to check 30daysofbeauty.ca regularly for updates, to obtain your print-to-redeem in store 1-day only coupons, month long offers, instructional videos and information about participating brands.
