the strength to shine

Women who do mixed martial arts (MMA), those who punch and kick, bleed and bruise, fascinate me. Why would they choose to participate in a brutal, possibly brutish, contact sport? Getting into a cage to fight has little appeal to me. (I do a bit of yoga or go for slow walks around my neighbourhood when I have the time.) And, it boggles my mind how competitive fighters find the inner fury to get physical with someone who hasn’t slept with their lover nor stolen an iPhone. I mean, why would they want to hurt their opponents? Reading the article about four of South Africa’s top women MMA fighters (p60) opened my eyes to a sport I previously knew so little about. It involves mental and physical agility, and an intense…

italian sneaker brand Superga takes the concept of getting follower-heavy ‘influencers’ to front advertising campaigns one step further – by inviting influencers to collaborate on fashion collections. After the success of its previous collaborations with Chu and Poppy Ntshongwana, Superga teamed up with South African creative talent Trevor Stuurman. He gives Marie Claire the lowdown on this exciting new development in his career. Tell us about the collaborative process with Superga. It was a great project, starting in early January with back-and-forth meetings with Superga. When I got to curate the collection for summer, I had the freedom to choose the creative team to bring the lookbook to life. What is your favourite pair of shoes from the collection? The 2750 Panatta style in navy. What was the whole campaign about for you? It was a…

can new essences work miracles?

the Korean beauty industry has given us much to ponder with its intensive 12-step daily skincare ritual. Multiple serums, boosters, ampoules and toners have made their way into the Western beauty world. Should you be adding the most recent Korean invention, essence, to your skincare routine? Serum vs essence It can be tricky to decipher the distinction between an essence and a serum but, while they may look similar, there are key differences. Essence forms part of the treatment phase in the Korean 12-step skincare routine, and is applied after toning. It is almost water-like and much lighter in consistency than a regular serum. It works on a cellular level to help the skin in its regeneration process; the primary goal is to significantly increase hydration levels. Think of your skin as a…

lash out

the SS16 runways showed us eyes like we’ve never seen them before, with perfectly curled lashes taking a backseat. Be inspired by Twiggy’s 60s clumpy lash revolution but shake it up with a futuristic spider-like look. Go falsie crazy with lengthy, voluminous lashes adorning both top and bottom lash lines. Achieve this look in five easy steps: 1. Measure a false lash strip perfectly against the lash line length using tweezers. 2. Apply lash glue on to the strip and wait a few seconds for the glue to dry slightly. 3. Stick the lash as closely to the upper lash line as possible. Use the tweezer to squeeze the strip and natural lashes together. 4. Use individual lashes for the lower lashline, giving your eyes a punk look. Start with a few, then build…
