Pip Edwards x Mecca Cosmetica: Holiday Celebrations Start Here
P.E Nation Co-Founder and Creative Director Pip Edwards is pleased to join MECCA Collectiva with MECCA. In the company of innovators from across the globe, Sydney-based Pip shares her skincare routine, makeup secrets and carefully curated selection of go-to products.
Following a non-stop year - she just wouldn’t have it any other way - the infinitely energetic and upbeat creative is looking forward to the holiday season as much as the rest of us. With the Southern Hem’s annual sun-dappled slowdown imminent, and more time for self-care on the horizon, Pip shares her unique honed approach to style and beauty, and all the moments she’s most looking forward to filling her off-duty days with.
On Staying Local for the Summer: This Must Be The Place
I’ve just returned from my first overseas business trip, to the US, in almost two years. I was beside myself with excitement and curiosity throughout, to take in all those fresh blue skies and horizons. Equally, I’m just as happy to be home, sweet home.
I moved house and renovated during lockdown and it’s been an interesting process - I’d never renovated before. It’s about so much more than decorating; it’s been fun to discover what I like, and who I am, to create my own ultimate sacred space for me to ground in. I now have a crazy furniture addiction – I’m currently obsessed with floor lamps and chairs.
This summer, I’ll be staying local, enjoying the freedoms of getting to travel to all my favourite beaches and coastal hideaways (following Sydney’s four-month lockdown).
I’m looking forward to settling into summer backyard barbecue vibes and sun-drenched pool hangs (while wearing SPF, of course). So much yes to this.
On Her Skincare and Beauty Routine: I’m Every Woman
Through lockdown, I actually wore no makeup. Just moisturiser. And I loved it. I’m now finding my everyday look post lockdown is more pared back than it was before. Though I can never give up my mascara! I love mascara way too much.
My favourite look: I love clean natural makeup, fresh even skin, super highlighted cheekbones, loads of mascara, slight blush for that healthy glow, and loads of dewiness around the eyes.
I like to switch everything up too, from style and hair, to how I want my makeup to look. It really depends on how I feel - and how much time I have.
On Future Moves: The Time Is Now
I’m looking forward to everything, from small moments to big level ups. For summer, I want to eat guacamole, drink Tommy’s Margarita, 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 almost two years.
I think NYE 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, will probably be barefoot, and will definitely wear plenty of dark eyeliner for definition!
I’m looking forward to another hard working year, getting to travel overseas more and more, and growing and building P.E Nation - the opportunities are limitless! It’s time to get moving again!
