Best in Class


Katie Mulcahy (@lolaliner) is a self-taught makeup artist known for soft glam looks and stunning transformations. Originally from Ireland, she has been in Canada for five years and is the doting cat mother to Garfield and Paisley, who sometimes make a cameo on her feed.

Here are Katie’s top five Big in Beauty picks:

Life Plankton Elixir Repairing Serum, Biotherm

All great makeup looks start with nourished skin, and this serum delivers a supercharged concentration of probiotic-rich plankton extract for smoother, more refined and radiant skin.

On-The-Glow Blush in “Fleur”, Pixi

This solid cheek tint imparts a healthy-looking flush of colour with just one swipe on cheeks and lips — plus it adds moisture and treats skin with aloe vera, ginseng and fruit extracts.

Clean Fresh Hydrating Concealer in “Fair”, Covergirl

Hydrating, lightweight and vegan, this concealer leaves a natural glow as it neutralizes redness and dark circles.

Eye Opening Vegan Mascara, Lise Watier

Extreme length, high definition and intense lift are achieved with a formula that features 80 per cent naturally derived ingredients such as lash-nurturing black quinoa and vitamin E.

Guilty Love Edition EDP, Gucci

A celebration of liberty and freedom, this amber floral pays tribute to the vintage-y narcissus flower. It features heart notes from the bloom along with violet, enlivened by raspberry and jasmine.


The host of ET Canada’s Beauty Beat with Krys, founder of Dauphine magazine and co-founder of a vegan skincare brand, Krys Lunardo keeps busy with multiple projects on the go, all while raising two little ones. Though she loves a glam makeup look, skincare is her passion — especially treatments that deliver major results.

Here are Katie’s top five Big in Beauty picks:

Black Orchid Parfum, Tom Ford

Potent, intense and deeply sophisticated, this award-winning scent from designer Tom Ford stars black plum, golden rum and ylang ylang.

Better Than Sex Mascara, Too Faced

A must for luscious, ultra-voluminous lashes, this mascara’s curved brush is inspired by a woman’s hourglass figure.

24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer, Smashbox

You read that right — this primer offer a whopping 24 hours of eyeshadow-locking power, ensuring your eye looks stay put with maximum vibrancy.

Wonder’swipe 2-in-1 Liner To Shadow in “Kha-Ching”, Rimmel

With a touch of your finger, this metallic liquid liner in sparkling emerald green transforms into shadow, so you can go as precise or smoked out as you like.
