It may be just a dot in the Mediter­ranean, but, makeup-fan­tasy-wise, the EN­CHANTED IS­LAND OF CAPRI lives in ev­ery wo­man’s imag­i­na­tion come mid-win­ter. The drudgery of re­al­ity — freez­ing days, pal­lid com­plex­ion, dry lips, dull eyes — be­gone. It’s time to im­merse your­self in day­dreams: a RE­LAXED FREE­DOM, nat­u­ral colours in­spired by the land­scape, an UN­DER­STATED OP­U­LENCE … For­get con­ven­tional win­ter-beauty rules. This is san­ity preser­va­tion.

So if you’re plan­ning your high-sum­mer Euro­pean so­journ or just need a fresh state of mind to carry you through to spring, al­low us to trans­port you there. Pic­ture that fuch­sia bougainvil­lea. That amaz­ing ex­panse of turquoise wa­ter. THE AIR SALTY AND THICK. The well-worn cob­ble­stones. And the end­less stairs.

Capri is a flat-shoe is­land, so you want a beauty look that goes with that. Late lunch­ing with the su­pery­acht set at Il Ric­cio calls for a sum­mery state­ment mouth. Aper­i­tivo hour on the terrace re­quires chic gun-metal nails to wrap around your Aperol spritz. Af­ter­noon swims at Fon­telina Beach are about CAREFREE GLAM­OUR: cue a swipe of wa­ter­proof mas­cara. And the lu­mi­nos­ity of the sea at night calls for SEN­SUAL, BRONZED, GLOW­ING SKIN, del­i­cately lit with ra­di­ance.

Eter­nal sum­mer never gets old.
