Supermodel Candice Swanepoel Creates Her Debut Swimwear Brand And It's HOT!

Who better to create this year’s most coveted debut swim collection than a supermodel with legendary curves who has spent much of her life in shooting swimwear on beaches?  Candice Swanepoel’s new line Tropic of C celebrates women’s bodies without frill or fluff, playing up not just a woman’s sexuality, but her sensuality as well.  

High-waisted bikinis and high-cut one pieces lengthen legs and show off hips, sport bralettte tops are made for movement, balconette tops are delicate and feminine, and bra tops with cap sleeve straps offer super comfortable support.  The color palette ranges from earth tones, to black, white, and navy,  all in solid colors.  Surprisingly these pieces seem to be suited to many different body types, from angular to sporty, curvy to voluptuous. 

swimwear inspired by vintage silhouette with a modern approach
a mix of European elegance and Brazilian ease

a focus on fit and the curves of the female form 
the collection features a signature high cut leg, corset inspired tops and silhouettes that express a passion for dance
the earth is my color palette, and inspires texture and pattern
made with the utmost respect for the planet

More glamorous than beach bunny, this new collection is guaranteed to be the hottest tag on Instagram this spring and summer.

Cheat Sheet: Fake a Winter Getaway Glow with the Newest Beauty Treats

Spend ten minutes on Instagram and you come to the conclusion that everyone is either on a spectacular winter vacation, or they are prepping and packing for an escape to somewhere warm and sunny.  But a tropical respite isn’t in the cards for everyone and hearing forecasts of snow and cold temperatures does nothing for the sting of the constant barrage of images filled with palm trees, bikinis, and drinks with little umbrellas.  Ouch.  

We all know, really, that most of what we see on Instagram is a total fabrication and no one’s life is ever as perfect as they depict with filters, cropping, and angles.  Lots of people save vacation photos or even those of their family or fiends and post them with intuitive timing to give the idea they are blessed enough to be jetting off into a sunset somewhere, when in fact they are most likely holed up at home just like you or me, dreaming about sand in their toes and how pretty their pedicure will look in those beaded sandals…… 

Time for a few tricks of your own to chase the sun, even if that means a little pampering at home, followed up by some clever selfies and well-edited old vacation photos.  We all know you have to “fake it ’til you make it”, and the best way to look like you have been kissed by the sun is to get your glow on using the new crop of makeup products that you will end up wearing all spring and summer.  Consider them a good investment, including for your mental health and wellbeing since that actual trip to Tulum you’ve been dreaming about is just not on this year.  

Here are some of the new products I’ll be using, amped up for sunset-light selfies (using Instagram’s Mayfair filter of course, and shooting against a clear blue sky or in the last five minutes of light as it streams through the window), and toned down for everyday wear, making everyone think I’ve just returned from somewhere exotic:

Vinyl Lip - Shine on with the Hottest New Lip

One of the most statement-making lips from the latest runway collections is the vibrant vinyl lip in electric shades.  Not to be confused with lip gloss, lip vinyl is highly pigmented, and less goopy and sticky.  The shades range from the palest to the darkest colors, and have a rich depth.  

This modern take on a solid color matte lip can work with any complexion, and depending on the shade can work boldly on its own, or more subdued with an interesting graphic eye makeup.  

This new trend isn't just for the makeup obsessed who want to rock a new look, as it can be worn in any shade you would normally wear whether that's a pale or a strong lip.  It's the texture and luster that is key.  The shiny finish gives dimension to the deep pigment, creating a luscious lip that is versatile and modern.
