Get into the Olympic spirit and in-style with Vasanti Cosmetics official Go Canada Palette.

Closing Ceremony Musings

With the Olympics in full swing after yesterday’s breathtaking opening ceremonies, Canadian beauty label Vasanti cosmetics unveiled an official GO CANADA palette that celebrates the Vancouver Olympic Games.

First off, before I gush about Vasanti’s patriotic new palette, sorry for being away from my blog for so long. I was terribly sick for almost two weeks and struggled to juggle classes, while getting rid of this horrible cough! But, I am back now and ready to share with you the endless ideas I thought up to write about as I fought off my cough and pored over beauty and fashion magazines, websites, and great books in bed.

The fiddlers, tap dancers, the flame lighting in the stadium, and KD Lang’s rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” were my favourite moments at the opening ceremonies.

Listen to Cohen’s Hallelujah here. Cohen’s beautiful single was also recorded by Jeff Buckley and Imogen Heap for the OC, it’s so beautiful how one musician’s creation can take on so many unique forms by different artists.
What performances, or memorable moments of the ceremonies did you enjoy? SHARE THEM WITH ME!

Vasanti Cosmetics

For those of you who don’t know Vasanti, here’s a quick rundown. Vasanti Cosmetics was established in 1999 by South Asian BEAUTY divas Pinki Gosal, Monal Patel, and Priti Patel. Vasanti’s entrepreneurs developed special formulas and colours specifically for the Southasian yellow skin tone often not considered in mainstream brands found in drugstores. So Vasanti Cosmetics are a hit with women of South Asian descent because for once the colours match our skin and remain bold all day long.

The palette made for you to sport during the Olympic games includes a white shimmer powder reminiscent of ice rinks and ski slopes; bronze, silver and gold shadows in honour of the Olympic medal colours; and a sexy red gloss in honour of our flag.

Use the eye and lip palette for a glowing day look, or transform the makeup into a makeover for a night on the town by using a black liner on the upper and lower lash lines, apply a coat of DiorShow mascara to your lashes – my  favourite mascara, and a bronzer to highlight your cheekbones. Try Physician Formula’s Bronzer palette. What would you pair with Vasanti’s patriotic palette for a night on the town?

Vasanti’s GO CANADA Palette is available at your local Shoppers, Rexall or directly on their website for a limited time. At the cost of $40.00 this makeover will last you the entire Winter season well into the Spring. I can’t wait to go get mine! Now go support our athletes while flaunting your Olympic inspired beauty!
