With Meriç Aral, we enjoy an effortless but well-groomed look. For those who have not yet met Meriç, here’s a brief summary: She likes coffee, animals and putting on lipstick. She’s been growing her hair and reading Julian Barnes’ Metroland. Meric is very sensitive about skin care. She can’t start or finish the day without cleaning her skin. We can hear you saying, “What about make-up?”. That’s when red lipstick, blushing cheeks and a sweet smile enters the scene. 

“For me, beauty stands for feeling good about yourself.   To be able to say, ‘that’s how I am, and that’s how I like myself’ is beautiful and powerful to me. A person who is themselves, who takes pride in doing so and who stays that way is very beautiful” says Meriç. She simply defines being beautiful as “being imperfect, loving your flaws and to be authentic and sincere” and she gives us some tips on loving who we are. 

Meric doesn’t wear much makeup, but also can’t live without it.  That’s where being able to do the right makeup with the right products enters the scene.  Every woman has products that she can’t live without. Hers are “concealer, blush and lipstick”. When it comes to beauty, Meriç is so sure of herself that her favorite make-up item is something that is very familiar to us; red lipstick.  We are confident that this choice is pretty much related to self-confidence!

Meriç says her beauty secret is to take good care of her skin and stay at peace with it every day but the main secret is her smile! “Abandon the fear of not being liked, be yourself and smile. Claim your freedom to look the way you want to look, make peace with your imperfections and don’t forget your red lipstick at home.”
