THE KEYS TO SHINE
INDISPENSABLE What do Madonna, Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow share in common? They would give anything for the perfect eyebrow. A particular art to frame the face and define the arch of the brow, the remodeling of the eyebrow is crucial for the stars and for us all. It is therefore important to have recourse to an eyebrow design specialist. Result: a line better suited to the shape of our face and which expands and defines the eyes. Professional makeup artist Caroline Théorêt, formerly of Chanel, has a storefront studio at 420 St. Ambroise, studio 464, Montréal, 514 937 2782 www.studiocarolinetheoret.com

It keeps the hair fiber soft, and maintains its vitality and capacity to reflect light, in other words, it preserves hair. This new product line for long hair care is premised on three main benefits: create a fiber for improved texture, treat the root to remove impurities and smooth the fiber to create a healthy and shiny hair. • Products to transform your long hair into a seductive weapon. Bain Cristal (for thick or fine hair), Lait Cristal and Lumière Liquide, of Kérastase. Offered exclusively at salons. kerastase.ca

The kérathermie beauty ritual is given in stages at Kérastase-certified salons. From the application of relaxing products to restructure hair fibers, through nutrition of the scalp, kérathermie provides a complete makeover for hair. And to ensure that the products penetrate more deeply into the scalp, curling irons or hair straighteners are used. Shiny and healthy, hair regains vitality as product nutrients act on the hair. Frizz is eliminated and hair is rendered soft, shiny and disciplined.
