If you’re like me, you’re already VERY familiar with the concept of “5 à 7.”
(If you don’t parlez français—it’s the classy French term for happy hour.)
Now Chanel is adopting it for a new service at Holt Renfrew’s Bloor Street location in Toronto. And guess what—they’re even serving mocktinis!
Here’s the deal: every Thursday and Friday between 5 and 7pm, you can book in to get your makeup done. You get to choose from a whole menu of different looks (with cool names like “Bronze Goddess,” “Red Carpet” and “Seasonal Chic”), PLUS you get to learn one pro technique—basically a how-to lesson on either brows, skin, lips, smoky eyes or false lashes.
The cost is just $75, redeemable in Chanel products. AND, unlike many a department store makeover I’ve had, they actually do a good job. I got the Bronze Goddess treatment at the launch event a couple weeks ago and it was gorge—understated, glowy and easy to replicate at home. (And they give good advice—this is where I got the brow-bleaching idea, actually.)
Call 416-922-2333 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 416-922-2333 end_of_the_skype_highlighting to book your spot. You can even reserve the whole table if you bring five friends! LOVE THIS.
