A Flawless Guide To Masks

Iman Said, Social & Content Manager, Flawless by Friday There is no shortage of face masks in every drug store or beauty retailer but finding the ones right for your skin are often a lot trickier than they seem. Let’s be real – face masks have come a very long way from the mud formulations in the beauty aisle of your local Walmart and Shoppers that had a one-size-fits-all function of drying your skin out. Today masks come in pretty much every formulation under the sun and cater to all skin types. Take this guide with you on your next...

A Flawless Guide to SPF

Iman Said, Social & Content Manager, Flawless by Friday I can almost hear you saying, “Yeah, we get it — sunscreen is a must,” and you’re right. At this point, everybody knows that wearing a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen is a must. But here is a guide on the types of sunscreen out there and how to reapply throughout the day without effing up your makeup (or your skin in the long run). 1. Which is which?

An Impromptu Gap Year

Sam Beattie, Flawless by Friday 

Since I was young, I had always done what was expected of me. I did well in school, trained hard at gymnastics, took part in summer internships and last summer, got into business school. At the time, I did this all happily. But towards the end of high school, I was thinking about taking a year off from it all before going to university. I wanted to experience new places and explore the great unknown. I was at a crossroads of whether to go to university, or travel and experience things you never could in a classroom.

A Year of Self-Realization

Sarah Clayton, Communication and Campaign Program Specialist, Achievers

It started with the death of a gorilla, it ended with the death of a guerilla. It’s difficult to argue anything other than 2016 being a bizarre AF year – and I as the human embodiment of the weirdness that was 2016 this past fall.

5 Tips to Get Ready For Big Events

Stephanie Drew, PR Director, Flawless by Friday Let’s face it, we are all super excited summer is finally here. But, that also means that our schedules are jam packed. From work during the week, cocktail catch ups with friends in the evenings, weekends that usually consist of at least 1 wedding or dinner party, most of us are using some sort of planner, agenda, or iPhone calendar religiously. I don’t know about you, but the big weekend events are what really stress me out the most. Finding the perfect dress, shoes, jewelry, the hair appointments, makeup appointments, etc…it can all...

What's in T's Bag? (Record Store Edition)

Therese Hadfield, Accounting Administrator, Flawless by Friday 

Inspired by the Amoeba record store youtube videos of artists, musicians, actors and comedians shopping for their favourite records, I decided that for my week’s blog post, I would do by own version of “What’s In My Bag?”. There are some really great record stores spread across Toronto, and this week I decided to hit up Play De Record. Close to Spadina and College, and just up the street from some delicious dumplings and dim sum, this spot is home to great classic vinyl.

Here’s what’s in my bag:
