If you are a Toronto or Miami beauty lover, you know about the beauty destination that is Gee Beauty. Going into Gee Beauty is like peeking into the beauty cupboard of your coolest girl friend. Your cool friend that has only the hottest and newest beauty products – for outer and inner beauty – and she knows exactly what you need. I remember going into Gee Beauty years ago, and they were one of the first shops to carry Tata Harper. This year Tata Harper hosted a party at the Miami Gee Beauty and it was clearly THE party for beauty junkies. So you know that Gee Beauty is always on the hunt for what is new and necessary for us.
The fine women of Gee Beauty -see them above, meet them here – all share a passion for making you feel pampered and beautiful. You can’t help but want to hang out when you go into the shop. It’s cozy yet modern and inviting, with great music, a cool drink of water and all the beauty stuff you could ever want to play in. Gee Beauty also curate gorgeous limited and exclusive lines of clothing and jewellery that I always want. They instinctively know what is on trend right now, be it beauty or fashion.
Gee Beauty also have a bespoke line of colour makeup. The colours are simple and classic, with a nod to shades that are hot for the season – because they know what we need. If you know me, you know I am always looking for the perfect tinted moisturizer for my favourite look – no makeup makeup!
I feel like I have been in search of the perfect tinted moisturiser forever. Something that doesn’t settle in pores, that doesn’t clog or irritate my oily and sensitive skin, but also doesn’t dry it out. Many TMs give me super oily and shiny skin that require a lot of powdering. Others roll off the skin with the slightest touch due to massive over use of silicones in makeup today.
So. A tinted moisturiser that is also a primer, meaning it stays put all day and keeps makeup in place? Sounds like a dream right? It’s not a dream! It’s… drumroll… Gee Beauty Prime Skin Tinted Power Primer. I am IN LOVE! Gee Beauty Prime Skin is the Goldilocks of tinted moisturizers – not too sheer, not too opaque, and never too greasy or oily. Prime Skin actually moisturises skin with hyaluronic acid and is oil and fragrance free, making it perfect for all skin types. It comes in three shades, Light, Medium and Deep.
From Gee Beauty:
Oil Free. Free of Parabens and Synthetic Fragrance. Hypo Allergenic. Your ‘no makeup’ makeup as it is both breathable and weightless. Tinted Power Primer hydrates, brightens, and helps control oil while giving light, natural coverage to even out instantly. Skin appears perfectly polished, fresh, light and luminous with a satin-matte finish. Hyaluronic acid helps improve skin hydration while the oil-free formulation helps minimize the appearance of large pores. It’s long lasting, ready in a flash.
The Gee Beauty Kabuki Brush is a must-have as well. It has the perfect density to distribute the Prime Skin and blends it perfectly. I use Medium, as I tend to like a bit of a glow and am usually self tanned. As Prime Skin is sheer, the Medium shade gives me just the right amount of glow. Want gorgeous skin?
