Fancy is a feeling that many of us have left behind in lockdown. But thanks to Brittany Gray, getting #fancified is becoming a priority again.
15 years ago, she founded Fancy Face as a luxury in-home, on-site, and in-studio hair and makeup service. Today, Fancy Face comprises one of Toronto and Vancouver’s most prestigious beauty teams. It also boasts a signature cosmetics line based off of Brittany’s favourite hero products.
This extension of her beauty empire incorporates all the things we love: ethical values, gorgeous Canadian-made products and an all-female team. Excitingly, Fancy Face cosmetics will be joined by the brand’s first-ever skin care products after spending a year in the research and development stages.
Through using the entire Fancy Face range, you’re provided with the tools you need to help preserve your beauty. And since a proper skin care routine is essential to creating a timeless complexion, Fancy Face skin care promises clean, quality, vegan-friendly formulas at an accessible price point.
The Daydream Cream and Poetry in Potion Serum are the first products to be included in the lineup. Both are lightly textured yet packed with moisture to embed hydration deep into the skin. The Poetry in Potion Serum is also infused with 24-karat gold (yes, gold) to enhance vitality and luminosity.
“I have my mother to thank for teaching me the importance of an age-appropriate skin care routine. I remember watching how she took the time for herself with lotions and potions that, after five minutes of application, made her look absolutely radiant,” Brittany said. “The way your makeup looks is all dependent on the quality of your skin condition. If your skin is scaly, dry, dehydrated, overly oily… No foundation or BB cream is going to hide bad skin.”
Fancy Face‘s new Supermodel Honey Shot Lip Bath can also be thought of as skin care. It nourishes the lips with ultra-rich ingredients like shea butter, vitamin E and castor oil to soften fine lines and deeply hydrate your pout.
If you’re spending most of your time in front of your computer, applying a quick coat of Honey Shot and a light layer of Age Defying BB Cream may be the extent of your routine. However, if you like to get fancy no matter the occasion, check out Brittany’s favourite products for creating a timeless look below.
Class Act Lipstick
What is it? A super glossy, classy shade of mauve that was made to suit every skin tone.
What is it? A water-resistant brow gel that polishes, prunes and perfect in seconds, made in a universal shade that’s perfect for blondes, brunettes and black-haired beauties. Plus, it lasts all day long.
Britt’s pro tip: “With small brush strokes, run the applicator upwards from the beginning of your brows down to the tail. Browmance has water-resistant fibers that thicken even the thinnest brows. Brooke Shields has nothing on you.”
What is it? A medium-toned, matte bronzer that instantly beautifies and blends for an effortless sun kissed glow.
Britt’s pro tip: “Maui Mood can be used to add definition to the contours of your cheeks and jawline. It can also be used all over to look tanned and golden in seconds.”
What is it? A collection of Fancy Face‘s favourite beachy, bronzy shades ranging from matte beige to champagne-dipped gold to smooth terracotta.
Britt’s pro tip: “Use #FANCIFIED to create a work-appropriate daytime look or a smokey eye for a night out on the town. Utilize the lightest matte shade across the entire eyelid and keep both pearlized shades focused on the lid of the eyes only. The warm, brick-toned matte looks fantastic in the crease of the eyes and the deepest brown shade makes for a gorgeous winged liner, paired with our angle brush (a fan fave) from our Blushing Gold Makeup Brush Collection.”
Almost Famous Cream Blush
What is it? A peachy, apricot cream blush that warms up a variety of skin tones and adds the perfect amount of colour to the cheeks.
Britt’s pro tip: “Apply on the apples of your cheeks and nose to give your face the perfect kiss of colour.”
5th Ave Lip Glaze
What is it? A vanilla-scented lip glaze in a nude-pink shade that gives lips an expensive, glass-like finish.
Britt’s pro tip: “Tap onto bare lips or over your favourite lipstick to achieve that perfect pout.”
Dew-U Face Hilite
What is it? A creamy, pearlized three-in-one shimmer that is perfect for eyes, lips and cheeks.
Britt’s pro tip: “Apply with your fingers to the high points of your cheek bones, bridge of your nose, inner corner of your eyes and Cupid’s bow for that lit-from-within, soft filtered glow.”
