Here’s Model Grace Mahary’s Trick for Glowy Skin Before a Big Event

Plus, getting pumped up to Migos, the best late-night spot in Toronto, and everything else we learned before the CAFA Awards.

Here’s Model Grace Mahary’s Trick for Glowy Skin Before a Big Event

Canadians have a reputation for two things: being nice (is it really that difficult?) and producing many a supermodel. Okay, so maybe the latter isn’t quite on everyone’s radar, but it’s still worth stating: Daria Werbowy, Jessica Stam, Winnie Harlow...the list goes on. And on.

So when it came time for this year’s CAFA Awards (an annual event that celebrates the best and brightest talent in fashion in the country), it was only right that we spent the afternoon with model Grace Mahary, an Edmonton native who moved to Toronto as a teen to pursue her basketball career (!), before getting discovered and going on to work with everyone from CHANEL to Balmain and Givenchy. With her mom and BFF in tow, we chatted about everything from the super-simple trick she turns to for glowy skin before a big event, to her maple syrup obsession, and how fancy charity galas were the impetus of her new non-profit, Project Tsehigh. Click through the photos below—you might learn a thing or two.

“It [is] all hands-on [with Project Tsehigh]. I’ve been modeling for a few years and have been to charity events and supported other benefits, but I saw some things about overhead; how a lot of your money doesn’t go to the project and even if you start working with a non-profit. A lot of the hands-on work isn’t done by you or through you. That’s how this project came to be. Now, because I was an athlete and am a model, I try to bring that into it because it is so hard to keep people’s interest in sustainability. Look at Leonardo DiCaprio, and how much he does for environmentalism, and how a lot of people still don’t care.”
