Welcome to Plateau Beauty! My name is Marissa and I’m a Toronto-based beauty enthusiast. I started this blog in 2016 to contribute my perspective to the beauty world—as a Canadian shopper, I always find myself doing extra research about where to find certain brands, when to expect product launches, or which international retailers offer reasonable shipping to Canada.

However, since enduring a year of the global pandemic and becoming a mom, my relationship to makeup has changed. While I’m still focused on beauty in a Canadian context, I’ve recently committed to ensuring that my beauty purchases, and what I communicate about beauty, adheres to a set of values that are important to me. You can read more about them here.

What you’ll find at Plateau Beauty is a no-fuss, informative approach to cosmetics and skincare in Canada, with a focus on simple and minimalist beauty. Plateau Beauty is also an attempt at conscious beauty consumption, after years of frenetic over-spending.

I’d love to hear what you think—reach me by email, on Instagram, or on Twitter.

To contextualize my product preferences: I have a light neutral complexion, and my skin is dry, reactive, and acne-prone. If you have a similar skin type, you might like some of the same brands and products that I recommend. I’d love to hear about what you’ve been loving as well!

Opinions shared are always my own.
