MECCA MUSE

Mecca Collectiva: Pip Edwards heads back to life and into the holidays with optimism (and loads of mascara)

Introducing MECCA Collectiva, our inspiring set of tastemakers from around the globe. From skincare routines to makeup edits, browse their MECCA CURATIONS.

For Sydneysider and founder of P.E Nation, Pip Edwards, summer air brings a flare of optimism, excitement and curiosity: returning to the office, jet-setting internationally for business for the first time in two years (hello, USA!) and reinvigorating her love for all things local – including exploring her own backyard (literally and figuratively). Here, Edwards shares how she’s spending the holiday season and talks glowing from the inside – and outside!

ON HER SIGNATURE STYLE AND MAKING IT SPECTACULAR

“Through lockdown, I actually wore no makeup – just moisturiser. And I loved it. I’m now finding my everyday look post-lockdown is way more pared back, but I can never give up my mascara! I love mascara way too much.

“ I opt for natural makeup, fresh, even skin, super highlighted cheekbones, loads of mascara, a light blush for that healthy glow, and plenty of dewiness around the eyes.

“For party season, I switch up everything from style to hair to makeup. It really depends on how I feel and how much time I have, but right now I’m loving thick, square eyeliner in the corners.”

ON THE YEAR THAT WAS – AND WILL BE

“2021 was big; I moved to a new house and renovated during lockdown, and it's been an interesting process as I’d never done anything like that before. It's been fun working out what I like – and who I am – to create the ultimate sacred space to feel grounded in. I now have a crazy furniture addiction and I’m currently obsessed with floor lamps and chairs!

“For 2022, I’m looking forward to another hardworking year – travelling overseas more and more and growing and building my brand. It's time to get moving again!”

CELEBRATING LOCAL (AND LOCALLY)

“I’m staying local this summer and enjoying the freedom of getting to all my favourite beaches. I’m looking forward to settling into summer backyard barbecue vibes and getting sun-drenched by the pool (while wearing SPF, of course).”

GETTING DRESSED UP AGAIN

“I think New Year’s Eve might be spent at home with family and friends, just celebrating that we can all be together. I’ll be getting dressed up for sure, but will probably be barefoot – and will definitely have a dark eyeliner on for extra eye definition!”

2022 BEAUTY RESOLUTIONS

“I need to take more care of my skin and focus on general skin health. I know post-summer my pigmentation will flare up, so I will need to address that.”

READ/EAT/WATCH/LISTEN

“Eat guacamole, drink Tommy’s Margaritas, listen to my ‘Pip Radio’ Spotify playlist over and over, finally watch Euphoria (yes, I’m slow to the party) and read the book that has been on my bedside table for nearly two years (guilty!).”
