About the Store
At India Rose Cosmeticary, we are obsessed with the ritualistic side of beauty. Whether your daily routine involves sitting down at a glamorous vanity to put your face on each morning and a ten step skincare regimen to take it off each night, or a swipe of lipstick in the car on the way to work and a pack of makeup wipes on your nightstand before you fall asleep, we want to elevate your experience.
We’ve ripped apart each magazine and scoured every blog. We’ve dug deep into our mother’s medicine cabinets and dived down the deepest of Instagram holes. All this to bring you a curated selection of products, ranging from the time-tested favourites that have been passed down through generations to the cutting-edge miracles that you haven’t heard of yet.
About the Experience
How you get ready for an event, whether it’s a lunch date or a black tie gala, not only sets the tone for the whole experience, but it’s also quite often the best part… Or at least for us it is, so let us help. Whether you want the contour of a Kardashian, the je ne sais quoi of a cool, elusive French girl, or if you just want to feel like a more polished version of yourself, step into our ultimate beauty closet and we’ll have you leaving feeling ready to take on the world.
India bought her first makeup kit from Walmart when she was ten years old. She proceeded to give makeovers to anyone and everyone who would let her. She then learned how to make lip gloss by melting petroleum jelly with eye shadow, which she packaged and sold to her “clients”. While a cosmetics empire didn’t exactly blossom, her love for all things beauty definitely did.
Fast-forward to a few years, India enrolled in Blanche Macdonald’s part-time makeup artistry program while she was pursuing her Bachelor of Arts in Art History. She took her formal education in paint and pencil and applied it to concealer and liquid liner.
India prides herself on fresh, fashion-forward makeup that wears like a second-skin rather than a mask. She brings an encyclopedic knowledge of the world of all things beauty and a sense of humour to work everyday and she is thrilled at the opportunity to play a part in making you look and feel your best.
