A How To Guide To Feeling Beautiful This Summer

I remember the first time I walked into Saks Fifth Avenue’s Toronto location at the corner of Yonge & Queen with Julio. His eyes lit up as we walked into the stores iconic fashion and beauty departments. Known for years in my mind as a destination we had to visit every time we went to NYC, it was nice to know that the brand we had respectively come to love was finally in our city. While I’ve come to memorize the space (and designer bags Julio points out to me regularly), one of the things I have come to love most about Saks is their beauty and fragrance departments. While I used to feel out of place, their associates have really helped make those topics understandable and approachable for me.

On Saturday June 8th, you can come and see what I mean for yourself at the Summer Beauty Symposium! Hosted by Saks Eaton Centre at Queen Street. Running all day long, some of the most amazing beauty brands, representatives, and industry leaders will be on hand to break down beauty trends for us all to feel and look our bests this summer.
