Summer loving If there’s one millennial trait I, as a so-called senior millennial, actually identify with, it is the popular saying that we value experiences over things. Give me an exotic trip over a new couch any day. This approach has its drawbacks, for sure. For example, my interior style will perhaps forever remain ‘shabby chic’. But eating another croissant in Paris, or walking along a footpath in Madagascar, makes it so worth it! As the year entered its final push towards the summer holiday season, we developed a serious case of wanderlust here at Marie Claire. This can be blamed mostly on our fortunate fashion team, who travelled to the idyllic private island resort Azura Benguerra in Mozambique to bring you two incredible summer-inspired stories that will make you want to pack…

letter of the month

Dear Marie Claire, I want to congratulate you on an amazing magazine. I am usually a picky reader and my concentration levels tend to waver. But for the first time I managed to read a whole magazine. It’s also the first time I purchased Marie Claire, and I found that it has more true and relevant stories for the modern woman than other fashion magazines. Your September 2017 issue is fantastic! It’s as if it was created just for me. I can’t wait for the next issue. Every month’s winning letter will receive a one-year subscription to Marie Claire. Send your letters to lynette@assocmedia.co.za or tweet us @MarieClaireSA…

ndebele art for the world to see

Esther Mahlangu's legacy will be immortalised in New York City. It has been announced that a mural stretching over two road lanes in lower Manhattan will honour the famed South African Ndebele artist. The mural will consist of the beautiful geometric Ndebele patterns that have come to define Esther’s art: an amazing tribute to her life’s work, which has adorned buildings, cars, and even planes.

Maria Alyokhina, an activist from the Russian punk-rock group Pussy Riot, has had her fair share of conflict with the Russian government. She has spent two years in prison before for protesting inside a church against Putin’s rule. She’s been harassed, beaten and humiliated for standing up…

rose tinted

GET THE LOOK Pulling off a rosy-pink eye may sound daunting but it’s more flattering than you’d imagine, and one of the easiest looks to master. Make it look striking by removing any redness on your skin or dark circles under your eyes with illuminating concealer or foundation. First swipe a copper or bronze across the lid to create a warm base. Then blend two shades of red-pink eyeshadow over the eyelid through to the crease to add a hazy depth. If you’re choosing to intensify the pink shade, balance with light contouring and nude lips. To avoid looking like a ’60s throwback, ditch the eyeliner and add a touch of mascara for a simple yet chic look.…

tone it down

TRY THIS Our skin loses moisture during the day and overnight, and toners are effective rehydrators. Your toner can be used as a facial mister (some toners come in a spray form) when it’s too hot, or when your skin feels dry. NOT JUST ANOTHER STEP Toners are also great for brightening the skin and removing blemishes. Try these multitaskers: 1. NEUTROGENA Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Purifying Toner R110 2. CLEAROGEN Anti-Blemish Toner R235 3. YUNGSKIN Toner Vitamin Enriched Lotion R100 SAVE FACE For many 30-somethings, a religious three-step routine was the first introduction to skincare – cleansing, toning and moisturising. But somewhere along the way, toners were outshined by the popularity of serums as the most important step in your regime. Enter the reinvention of toners. Think of toners as preparation for maximum absorption…
