Marie Claire South Africa April 2018

Marie Claire South Africa is an iconic, trendsetting title for discerning, fashion-conscious women. It's a brand of depth and substance and offers a journalistic angle on issues not covered by other fashion magazines. Marie Claire is for multifaceted women with a shared mind-set: they are curious about the world and empathize with other women, and their interests range from social issues to fashion trends. The brand provides content not found anywhere else in South Africa: dynamic, picture-led reportage, real women’s stories, critical reporting and sophisticated fashion and beauty across age categories. Please note: this digital version of the magazine does not include the covermount items you would find on printed newsstand copies.

the future is female

Many people spend big money to listen to the best speakers in the world. We buy books about inspirational journeys and send text messages of motivation to those we love. From Friday to Sunday, South Africans from all walks of life can be found in places of worship to receive their weekly dose of spiritual upliftment. This tells me that, generally, most people want to be, and do, better. The human heart desires serenity, progress and meaningful connection with others. If this sounds familiar to you, then you will love this issue of Marie Claire, which I am proud to have guest edited. We bring you South Africa’s trailblazers, the badass women who, with their skills, expertise, talent and humanity, have made strides in their respective fields. From sport to business,…

LETTER OF THE MONTH Thank you for a magazine that transcends colour, is informative and breaks barriers. I’ve always enjoyed magazines; I’m a reader and appreciate a magazine that has a wealth of information. I was reminded of this when I paged through your Jan/Feb issue. Marie Claire is like a sister, ever-present to nourish my interest in all things fashion. Most importantly, the narratives are reflective of women across the globe, as depicted in Filter and ‘A portrait of Socotra’. I have friends across the colour spectrum. I enjoy pop and house music. I appreciate the weaving of maXhosa by Laduma and love Steve Madden. My bookshelf is graced by Toni Morrison, Khaled Hosseini, Lauren Weisberger and Pumla Dineo Gqola. I’m universal, hence my appreciation for Marie Claire. Within your…

to the skies

Avani Chaturvedi, 24, has become the first Indian woman to independently fly a fighter jet. This isn’t the first time she’s made history, though. In 2016, just one year after India committed to creating equality in its armed forces, Avani and her colleagues Bhawana Kanth and Mohana Singh became the first women in India to be inducted into the Indian Air Force fighter squadron. GLOBAL The Winter Games There was a tangibly different feeling at this year’s Olympic Winter Games. Women’s sports took centre stage and, for the first time in the Games’ history, they enjoyed more television time than men. This year was also huge for Czech Republic’s Ester Ledecká, the first woman to win gold in two different events (alpine skiing and giant slalom snowboarding) during one Winter Games.

GET THE LOOK You can use bronze and copper eyeshadows to create subtly shimmering or bold, dramatic looks. These metallics work with all skin tones, but with varying colour pay-offs: for darker skin tones, use a bright copper with red or orange undertones; fairer complexions should go for antiqued bronzes in rosy or red shades that warm up the yellow undertones of the skin.

the big reveal

RENEW Many women find the idea of a peel intimidating, but they’re really not that scary. A peel is simply an exfoliant (sometimes chemical) that removes dead skin cells and dirt to reveal renewed skin. Professional peels can be costly, which has led to the popularity of more affordable, at-home products. These are often gentler on the skin, too. OUR TOP PICKS THE BODY SHOP Drops Of Youth Youth Liquid Peel R240 removes impurities, pollutants and dead skin cells for more luminous skin. SIX SENSATIONAL SKINCARE Brightening Enzyme Peel R331 is formulated with papaya enzymes, which boost blood circulation to improve tone and texture. Dry or dehydrated skin is nourished for a brighter complexion. FILORGA Oxygen-Peel Re-oxygenating Micro-peeling Lotion R520 is a micro-peeling solution that gently exfoliates while smoothing wrinkles and minimising pores. MUST-HAVE ELIZABETH ARDEN Prevage…
