Homespun: A Beauty Editorial
An ode to breaking barriers and loving local

The fact that June, the month of pride and independence in more ways than one, marks the mid-year is something of a pleasant coincidence. A wave of self-awareness that runs right between two halves, June is a nice little pocket for recalibration. What exactly are we proud of? What independences have we gained and which are we still fighting for? Mid-year musings at best, maybe. But these little inquisitions have us thinking.




As the month of June dances its swan song, photographer Rxandy Capinpin whisks us away on a color-rich cloud of pride and local love: proudly homegrown beauty brands painted on a man’s face––simply because these little victories are well worth celebrating.

Pearlescent amethyst, pastel-like aquamarine––play up the impact of soft jewel tones with a smattering of shimmer.


Not one for color? Take the spangled route instead. Trade in rich shades and delicate pastels for luxe silvers and golds. Go subtle with a dusting of highlighter across the skin or turn the dial up to 11 with full-on liquid metal lips.
