SHOP TALK: Murale (and more)

It’s that time of year. The pallor of winter is starting to take its toll under the eyes, our neutrals are getting the best of us: it’s time for some spring colour! (Plus, with big nights like Ottawa Fashion Week and the Genies around the corner, there’s a good chance you’ll have some struttin’ to do.) If you’re in need of a pick-me-up, and one-stop-shopping is your bag, then head to Murale. Now with two locations in Ottawa, the mega makeup store offers nearly 50 different brands of cosmetics, fragrances, and skin care in a welcoming, try-it-yourself atmosphere. Remember, summer is *just* around the corner — might as well pick up some dermatologist-approved sunscreen to prepare.

The Look: clean and chic

Perfect for: a mini-makeover day with the girls

USP: plenty of events, like the Nars Spring 2011 launch (March 14-20) and Cover FX foundation clinics (March 10-13)
