Lot happening in the world right now. That there are no World Cup matches today, means a collective breath can be taken as smart devices are downed and screens are dimmed. The sliver of sanity that emerges from these acts just might be enough to savor a beauty story running in the July 2018 issue of Vogue Australia featuring Next’s own Gwen Van Meir. Students of geography and meteorology will recall that summer in the northern hemisphere means winter in the southern hemisphere. Believe it or not magazines in the south maintain fidelity to this fact of nature and don’t blindly follow the weather reports out of Central Park. Nope, not even close, in fact the story by photography duo of Claudia & Ralf Pülmanns and makeup artist Shane Paish concerns winter skin and all the treatments and protection it necessitates. Moisturizers are a must, but never at the expense of strong red lip (pictured) courtesy of lipstick by Yves Saint Laurent’s Rouge Pur Couture in Le Orange. Gwen naturally wears it well like any makeup worth its wax.
