As part of this month’s theme, Byrd’s Eye View, we’ll be talking to women the world over to find out what typical beauty routines are like in their countries. Yes, we love French pharmacy buys, and Scandi trends are very much on our radar, but alongside these destinations, we’ll be shining a light on some of the lesser-known beauty cultures—unearthing the beauty ideals, go-to looks and skincare routines in these places too. First up, we’re speaking to Aurelie Ollivry, a London-based beauty PR professional from Mauritius and founder of Soleil Bazaar, a website selling beach baskets and clutches handmade by artisans of Mauritius and the islands of the Indian Ocean. Here, Ollivry reveals everything about Mauritian beauty—from the culture and beauty ideals to the trends and treatments the islanders love.
