Beautiful Packaging, for a Beautiful Future


 
Hello lovelies!
 
Welcome back from your summer break.
 
It’s often said, the day after labour day marks the unofficial end to summer. Back to school, work, and reality.
 
While we’re sad to say goodbye to backyard tea parties and summer soirées, we can’t help but love this transitional period. It’s the perfect time for a beauty refresh or even a new look, even for us.
 
As Connie mentioned in her last post, we’ve been challenging ourselves in the last while, to create new tea packaging that is both beautiful, yet mindful of our ecological footprint. With that said, we are delightfully proud to introduce our new premium loose leaf teas + eco-friendly packaging.
 

 
MIYU’s signature teas are now housed in 100% recyclable tins and foiled pouches, including the labels – now printed on Forest Stewardship Certified (FSC) paper. Each tea blend is available in two varieties. The deluxe edition: a gift-worthy tin, for those who love pretty packaging and the everyday edition: an adorable, resealable foiled pouch, for everyday use and/or refilling the tin.
 

 

The new tin canisters and pouches are available online at miyubeauty.com and at select retailers across Canada and the U.S.
 
We hope you love the revamp and the new look, and we encourage you to also be mindful of your impact to our planet, as we work together towards a beautiful future!

A Wonderful Start to the New Year as MIYU Beauty goes North America wide at Anthropologie

 

Happy New Year lovelies! We hope you had a wonderful and well-rested holiday!

 

To kick off 2016, we’re proud to announce MIYU Beauty is now available in all Anthropologie stores in North America, including Canada, the U.S., Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.

 

Anthropologie New York City

 

We had the pleasure of finding out the incredible news while Connie and her family were back in Edmonton, Canada for the holidays. Note: that’s where I (Linda) am too :).

 

Check out Miss E’s adorable little cheeks as she watches the descent into Edmonton’s snowy city.

 

 

Since Connie was in town for the holidays we decided to visit the local Anthropologie store together. We happened to know Anthropologie would be carrying our beauty essence minis at all their North American locations soon, but we didn’t know exactly when… so… as you can imagine.. it was pretty exciting for us when we spotted our beauty essence minis on store shelves.

 

Anthropologie Edmonton

 

From the start, Connie has always dreamed of having her products carried at Anthropologie. With their gorgeously curated beauty collection – we think it’s definitely a perfect fit for MIYU.

 

Anthropologie Calgary

 

What a wonderful experience for Connie, her husband (he’s the guy who does all our MIYU photography), and myself, to share as a team. Of course, we couldn’t help but admire our beauty essence minis a half a dozen times more before we finally left the store.

 

 

Our de-stress mi and hydrate mi beauty essence minis can be found in over 200 Anthropologie stores across North America as part of Anthropologie’s beauty “smalls” collection. Full size beauty essences and teas can be purchased on anthropologie.com or as always on miyubeauty.com.

 

 

Cheers to a fabulous start to the New Year and may 2016 bring many more amazing MIYU milestones!

We’ve been keeping a little (big) secret for a the last while…
 
We are so thrilled and proud to announce MIYU Beauty products are now available in Hong Kong! We’ve recently partnered with  airplay blow dry barHong Kong’s first ever blow dry bar, to introduce our unique line of tea + skincare products to Asia’s trendsetters.
 

 
Airplay blow dry bar is one of the most adorable hair styling boutiques we’ve ever seen in Hong Kong. All three locations are chic, stylish and offer an affordable luxury beauty experience that’s very much on brand with MIYU. We are over-the-moon excited to partner with a company that shares our vision of promoting a gorgeous lifestyle. Airplay blow dry bar provides a luxurious escape for clients to unwind and be pampered. We hope MIYU’s beautiful line of products will only help to elevate that experience even further.

Until next time…

Makeup Tips for the Beautiful Blushing Bride

 

Beautiful bridal make-up is romantic, classical and most importantly a reflection of your personality. Whether choosing a natural, fresh look or a sexy glamorous make-up for your wedding, the following tips will ensure you look your absolute best!
 
Complexion
• Foundation evens out your skin tone so you look polished in your professional photos. It should be applied over the entire face. It doesn’t need to be heavy, however a sheer application will smooth out your skin tone and minor flaws.
• Choose an oil-free, liquid formula that matches your face and neck. It will help prevent shine during the day and last without fading.
• Next apply concealer with a small brush under your eyes and to the inner corners to brighten. Apply it onto your eyelids and set with powder to create a flawless eye shadow base. Lastly cover any imperfections that were not covered by your foundation. You should choose a shade that matches your skin. For extra brightening under the eyes choose a half shade lighter and for hard to cover shadows choose one shade darker than your skin.
• Finish everything off by dusting sheer loose powder over your face, concentrating in the T-Zone to minimize shine.
 
Eyebrows
• Well-groomed and beautifully arched brows frame your face, enhancing your eyes. They should look natural yet clean. Fill in sparse areas with an angle brush and a taupe shade of eye shadow that closely matches your brows. Brush through with a clear mascara to soften and set.
 

 

Liner & Mascara
• Black eye liner applied to the upper lash line after eye shadow will give beautiful definition in your photos. For a smoky look use a pencil and smudge out with a matching shadow. For a cat eye try liquid liner. Top off with three coats of rich black mascara to your top and bottom lashes. To makes eyes really pop try a set of natural looking, but voluminous false lashes!
 
Cheeks
• Shades of baby pink, rose, pinky coral and delicate peach work best to brighten your skin and give you a romantic glow. Avoid too much bronzer if possible as it can make the skin appear muddy. For a sunny glow apply a hint of bronzer together with pretty pale pink.
• Apply your blush to the upper apples of your cheeks, blending in an upward circular motion along the cheekbones. Don’t skimp on blush as some photography lighting can make your skin look pale.
 
Lips
• Apply a bit of your foundation over your lips to create a lasting base.
• Define the lips along the upper lip line with a natural looking lip liner similar to your own natural lipcolour. This will match with most shades of lipstick, and make your lips appear fuller.
• For a soft, sexy look fill in with a rosy neutral, soft pink or soft coral. Blot with a tissue, lightly dust with sheer powder and reapply. For a pop of shine apply a small dab of gloss at the centre of your mouth.

 

Last but not least, mist everything with MIYU’s hydrate mi beauty essence to set and refresh makeup.
