Beauty on Gould: Fall Edition

It’s that time of year again. The leaves change colour as our beauty routines go through their own colourful transition. Basic pinks and nudes, the colour palette of the warm summer months are replaced with the darker, cooler tones of a cold winter. We took to the streets of Ryerson to see how students change their beauty routine and what makeup essentials they love to wear.
