We will be staying closer to home and head westwards to the Prairie Province of Manitoba today. Our Vasanti inspiration of the day is Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba and Canada’s seventh most populated city.
The city’s name, Winnipeg, means ‘muddy or turbid waters’ in Western Cree. One of the most popular places in the city is The Forks, a bustling tourist hotspot equally loved by locals. This is the meeting point of two mighty rivers in Western Canada, the Red and the Assiniboine.
Winnipeg is a multicultural city, welcoming people from all over the world and the many festivals it hosts year round perfectly capture its spirit.
One of the local legends of Winnipeg is the ‘Purple City’. The Manitoba Legislative Building, a formidable structure in its own right, is lit by bright floodlights. On occasion, and especially after a fresh falling of snow, if one stared at the building for a time, everything in vision turns purple!
We were intrigued by this phenomenon and that inspired us to come up with this lovely Silky Eyeshadow Duo in Purple City. These two complementing shades of purple evoke the joie de vivre of an all-Canadian experience.
On a similar note, we are really thrilled to have made the cover of Glow, Canada’s Beauty Expert magazine. The cover model wears our Silky Eyeshadow Duo in Purple City and does she rock it! Chic Fall/Winter fashion, cozy knits, flawless skin and subtly intriguing eye makeup sets the tone for end of the year in style!
