Holy City Roller
Dewy skin with the occasional pop from a smoky eye or bold lip was spotted on many a Charleston girl. We adore these (mostly) local picks for their understated femininity and natural origins. Charleston-based RMS Beauty was already a Gather faithful by our visit but we happily added their Lip2Cheek, Eye Polish and Lip & Skin Balm to our repertoire. An epic hot tool gives Southern curls the perfect blend of bounce and control, while locally derived chia seed oil is a dream hydrator for all manner of climates. Finally, the aptly named Big Beautiful Eyes kit makes that subtle, doe-eyed look a snap.
Channel your inner southern sophisticate with wardrobe picks that are polished, fun and above all, ladylike. Fashion-forward takes on the classics like a trench, outsized pearls, blue denim and a crisp white button down are balanced by go-with-everything booties, ultra-feminine dresses, cobblestone-ready heels and the perfect everyday tote.
