If you’re a fan of America’s Next Top Model you’ll recognize Jay Manuel as the show’s former creative director and judge of Canada’s Next Top Model. He’s also a celebrity makeup artist, fashion and lifestyle beauty expert. He believes that “beauty is deeply personal, purely individual and surprisingly public.”

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Jay Manuel himself. He is so warm, gracious and cheerful in person! I asked him for tips on how to look great in front of the camera. His answer was “ Be genuine with your emotions. If you want to smile, think of something happy. The most important aspect of your expression is in your eyes.” So there you go ladies! A picture perfect tip from the expert of America’s Next Top Model, himself.

For the rest of the day we were pampered with amazing beauty, hair, nail and makeup services. Jay Manuel Beauty experts provided makeovers and beauty consultations. We also got to sample some of the exquisite products from his make up line. A unique aspect of Jay Manuel Beauty is that it uses crushed diamonds, pearls and precious stones to nourish and make the skin glow! I also love how the packaging is so sleek and compact so it won’t take up too much space in your make up bag. There’s a diverse, dynamic range of colors and shades for your eyes, lips and face to suit your skin colour.

Pai-Shau, a hair-care line provided their incredible hair styling services. Pai-Shau’s products are infused with Exotic Tea Complex and advanced binary technology to rejuvenate and protect the hair. I received a sample bottle of the Biphasic Infusion, a hair serum that instantly moisturized and detangled my frizzy hair. I really loved how Stephanie Parziale, the creative director of the brand, glamorized and added dramatic, voluminous waves to my hair!
