With TIFF now in full swing, you can feel the buzzy vibe all over Toronto with countless celebrity sightings, the hottest parties and events, scoping out the red carpet fashion and of course, the world class film premieres. Getting the full TIFF experience is so much fun, but time can be a total luxury with everything going on. Luckily, there are two handy must-haves to keep on hand during TIFF (well—always, actually) that help you create a glamorous, red carpet-worthy look in no time.
First, the most time-consuming beauty ritual of them all—nails. The one-step imPRESS Press-On Manicure ($9.99) is the quickest and easiest way to having perfectly-polished tips at all times.
All you have to do is match up the best sizes for your nails (write the numbers down so it’s even faster next time!), peel off the backing and press ‘em on. There’s no glue to fuss around with or drying time and it’s so simple, it can easily be done in the back of an Uber.
The SuperHold dual-layer adhesive keeps the nails in place and it’s actually shocking how well they stay on—I can go over a week without even thinking about it. The best part? They easily remove whenever you want without any damage, so you can switch ‘em up as often as you change your outfit.
Each set comes with 30 nails, including 6 accent nails (the glittery ones are perfect for TIFF!) so you’re sure to find a perfect match for each nail.
Next, when it comes to lashes, there’s really only *so* much mascara can do. Keeping a few pairs of KISS Lash Couture Faux Mink Lashes ($9.99) in your beauty arsenal is key to getting soft, fluttery lashes that look just as elegant and expensive as the ones the celebrites are wearing.
The knot-free lash band allows the lashes to layer perfectly with your natural ones and the tapered ends and varying angles give them a totally natural look. Each pair can even be reused up to 10 times!
They come in several different styles, so you can go for just a little bit of oomph with Little Black Dress or full-on glamazon with Midnight. To make choosing the perfect pair even easier, download the KISS Lash Wardrobe App where you can virtually try on each style to see what they’ll look like on—genius!
Ready for the cherry on top? You can grab both of them right at the drugstore—so they are just as affordable as they are convenient. Along with water, blister patches and energy bars, imPRESS Press-On Manicure and KISS Lash Couture Faux Mink Lashes will become the heros in your TIFF survival stash.
