Friends of Monarc. An inside look into the lifestyles and rituals of those we find most inspiring.
 

INTRODUCING SKY

The talent behind hair and makeup in Monarc's campaign imagery, Sky is a sought-after London-based session stylist and regularly creates hair looks for some of the world's most reported runway shows. 
   

 

HI SKY! YOU'RE FROM NEW ZEALAND. WHAT BRINGS YOU TO LONDON?

SKY: I came to London to explore a different career platform and to see new parts of the world.

 

WHAT DO YOU DO TO LOVE YOURSELF - HOW DO YOU EXPRESS SELF-LOVE?

SKY: Emotional health is a real focus of mine. Nurturing your own emotions unconditionally is paramount to one's ability to love and be loved. Allowing space for myself, meditation in stillness and movement is some of the most sacred time I set aside in my everyday.

WHAT DOES LOVE MEAN TO YOU?

SKY: Love is conscious, unconditional, imperfect & kind.

 

WHAT ARE YOUR MOST TREASURED JEWELLERY ITEMS?

SKY: I basically keep the same jewels on most of the time. I have a silver necklace filled with charms collected over the course of my life. Kind of like a tattoo  they all have a different emotional connection in time.

 

GOLD OR SILVER? OR DO YOU LIKE TO MIX UP YOUR PRECIOUS METALS?

SKY: I wear silver. It works better with my skin tone and I like the freshness of this metal.

TOP TIP:

Sky and Monarc share a passion for natural, cruelty free product ranges and a holistic approach to beauty, which allow us to be kind to the environment whilst looking and feeling beautiful on the inside and out. Sky introduced me to saving a published list of beauty brands that sadly still test on animals, which is a handy tool that I keep saved to my phone's photo roll. See and save it from here. Also, cruelty free and vegan brand lists via Cruelty Free Kitty and PETA are revised and updated each year. You're welcome :)
