"Gee Beauty, the popular Toronto destination for all things skincare, makeup and wellness, has packed up its bags and headed up to cottage country to set up a two-week pop-up shop in Muskoka from July 2 to 15.

The finish isn’t too shiny or too matte—it’s more of a velvet effect, and I’ve traded in my normal light-coverage foundation for this instead..."
