Santorini Beauty


Channel your inner Aphrodite, Greek goddess of beauty, with this Grecian-inspired beauty and skincare edit.


Body: KorresSantorini Vine. Made from the Assyrtiko grape variety, native to the most famous of the Cyclades islands. Citric and fresh, Athens-based Korres have bottled summer on the idyllic isle of Santorini. If, like me, you’re conscious about skincare ingredients, you’ll be pleased by the paraben-free, organic contents, and general ethos of the brand.


Fragrance: We all know the memory-triggering power of smell and this Diptyque scent was the fragrance of my Santorini island escape. “Philosykos”, meaning “friend of the fig tree” in Greek, gives this otherwise woody fragrance a fruity sweetness. One to sniff out if you’re a fan of the Figuier candle.


Hair: Warmer climates are a great excuse to give your hair the luxury of air-drying and a break from styling damage. The lightweight combination of Klorane’s flax fibre shampoo and conditioner give air-dried hair a lift at the roots and volume in the lengths without the need for heat.


Face: Sun-kissed skin looks best with minimal make-up, but a touch of highlight goes a long way to extenuate a tan. Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Killawatt highlighter duo (in Mean Money / Hu$tla Baby) and Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick (in Yacht Lyfe) are multi-purpose, making them travel-friendly, too. Add a touch of golden hour glow to cheek bones or eyes with the highlighter, or a coral freshness to cheeks and lips with the skinstick.


Nails: London GraceGrace. This cornflower blue is the signature shade of London-based nail bar, London Grace, and also reminiscent of the famous blue-domed terraces of Oia. A pop of colour for holiday feet.
