Stylish Women + Their Fragrances
KOREA - The Cleanser - Claudia Kim
Claudia Kim is a model and actress from Seoul.
"The most effort is put into achieving good, smooth skin - cleansing rituals, daily masks, facial massages to achieve a smaller face. Believe it or not, Koreans are also pretty keen on this: 'Your face is so small!' is a compliment that is often used."
DS & Durga
RUSSIA - The Perfectionist - Olga Karput
Olga Karput is the founded and owner of Kuznetsky Most 20, a concept store in Moscow.
"Women in Russia tend to care a lot about how they look, so we are used to caring for our bodies, skin, and hair from a very young age. One needs to stay healthy and good-looking! And you need time every day to do all of that. First you make a green juice. Then I suggest you do yoga or any kind of sport that makes you feel good. Then shower, self-massage, lotions, maskes, oils - only after that are you ready for a new day."
KENYA - The Risk Taker - Nancie Mwai
Nancie Mwai is a lifestyle blogger based in Nairobi.
"Kenyan makeup culture is still young, but we love bold, transformative looks. My mom prefers that I not wear any makeup, but this is what I love; I can still wash it off at the end of the day."
FRANCE - The Minimalist - Claire Dhelens
Claire Dhelens is a fashion editor and stylist based in Paris.
"My routine in the morning is a coffee on my terrace with a beautiful Paris view. For me, excess of foundation, blush, and lipstick means too many things to be hidden."
Neal's Yard Remedies
Wild Rose Beauty Balm
INDIA - The Naturalist - Rasike Navare
Rasika Navare is a model who grew up in Pune, a city in the western state of Maharashtra.
"I find myself drawn to natural products; I guess my Indian heritage has something to do with that. In a traditional Indian household, it's common to use products from the kitchen in the beauty regimen, like honey, turmeric, and yogurt. My current beauty routine consists of Neal's Yard Remedies Palmarosa Facial Wash, a dab of rose-hip oil, and a rose-vetiver moisturizer. And you must let your skin breathe by staying off makeup whenever you can."
