Cape Town is certainly an urban hotspot for creativity and craftsmanship. It’s no wonder that this year the mother city is painted in yellow to wear the crown as the official Design Capital of 2014. To show our support we wanted to devote our monthly editorial shoot to the creative talent of our local designers and artists.

Of course, given the colour scheme of black, white and yellow, we couldn’t think of a better location than the legendary Superette situated in the Woodstock Exchange Building. Against this quirky and artistic backdrop we teamed up with the Capetonian Kamini Pather, winner of Masterchef SA. She willingly got dolled up with a splash of yellow in the gorgeous garments of Habits and Klûk CGDT, as we played around with some original creations of our favourite local designers which we’ve listed below.

How To – Smouldering Eyes for Winter

When we think of the traditional smokey eye, colours in a darker palette like browns, greys and black usually comes to mind. We’ve decided to use the basic technique of achieving a smokey eye, but instead of the dark colours we opted for a combination of copper, brown and cranberry eye-shadows to create a warm winter look. With Ida Webster’s help we put together an easy, step-by-step tutorial for this shimmering smokey eye make-up look, that you can try at home.
