What are the essentials that make up your beauty or style profile? In this new series, we ask our coolest girlfriends about the things they’d choose to take with them if they were going to be stranded on a desert island forevermore. With no hope of rescue and the only guarantee being that their picks will be replenished once they run out, our would-be islanders share the holy grail products that they’d stick to till the very end of time:
Islander in question: Joelle Litt, Fashion Stylist
Current home base: Toronto, Ontario
How would you describe your personal style?
I would describe my style as fun but polished, and organic (depending on my mood).
What are some fashion brands that you’re really into?
I just bought the pants of my dreams from Brit Wacher. Sonya Lee for handbags, I’m waiting on mine that are being monogrammed. I haven’t been into denim in a while, but I’m currently living in Paige. If my closet could talk it would say Mo&Co (I keep adding more pieces).
You’re trapped on a desert island and you can only take 5 fashion pieces with you. What do you pick?
My striped Thomas Balint pantsuit, Atelier Wonder Graphic Mini Dress, Opening Ceremony thigh high boots, Marques Almeida Yellow Feather Sweater, Pony Mtl Thug Life bag. Can’t I bring more?
What is your perspective on skincare and beauty?
Mine is simple: 1) find the time to do it and 2) sunscreen is everything.
What makeup/skincare brands are you really into at the moment?
Really into Canadian natural brands WORLD and Harlow, obsessed with Alumier MD, and currently loving trying out new products by Glossier.
What are your 5 must-have skincare or makeup items?
Dalish Cosmetics Silk-to-Matte Foundation, Glossier Balm Dot Com in Cherry, Beam Team Hydrate + Glow by Estée Edit, Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel, and Chanel Nail Polish in 669 Chataigne (Ed’s Note: This is a limited edition shade; try CND Vinylux in Fedora for a close match).
What is a piece of style or beauty advice that’s always struck you as timeless?
Show one body part at a time. I’ve said that since I was 14.
