In the US, the new make-up launch has caused some controversy as critical voices accused the cosmetics company of misusing cultural symbols and designs. Fact is that the collection is inspired by the lush feeling of festival season where some Native American details, such as headdresses and beaded clothing belong to the iconic looks. Relax, everyone! Join the tribe and feel the vibe!

The collection is in stores now. In Switzerland at MAC counters and stores and as well as online.

Beach Bum

Beach Bum

This summer, you should take inspiration from sportswear for your beach attire and spice it up with some tribal details. Just make sure that your approach is completely luxurious. I recommend straps wrapped around your waist and vibrant prints. Accessories such as sunglasses, hats or embellished hair slides take your day in the sand to the next level of style. Use some bronzer for a sun kissed glow and add texture to your beach waves. Below is your shopping list:

The Secret of a Healthy Tan

CARITA - POUDRIER seul

Let me introduce you to my favourite bronzing powder that comes with a SFP 10:
The perfect balance between skincare and make-up, CARITA‘s PROTECTING AND BRONZING SUN POWDER SPF 10 offers a mosaic of three shades with a matte and iridescent finish that matches any skin tone to intensify and sculpt a tan, while protecting the skin against UVB rays.

At the heart of the formula, Chaulmoogra oil combined with Sweet orange extract helps to promote the natural pigmentation process and prolong a tan.

The powder can be used during sun exposure over sun cream to intensify your colour; after exposure to enhance and prolong your tan; and/or all year long for a naturally sun-kissed complexion.

It comes with a cute little pouch and a brush for CHF 65.-.
