Everything You Need To Know About Clinique

How a simple Vogue article revolutionised skincare and led to the creation of Clinique products…

Did you know that the idea for Clinique came from a Vogue editor?

The year is 1967, and the question on everybody’s lips is: Can great skin be created?  Norman Orentreich, a New York dermatologist, is advising his patients to use a 3-step skincare system of his own creation: cleanse, exfoliate, moisturise, when he meets Vogue Beauty Editor Carol Phillips.  Tired of seeing the same one-size-fits-all creams in stores, together they create a trailblazing Vogue article and the rest, they say is history!

everything you need to knnow about clinique allbeauty blog

The creation of ‘Clinique’

In a leading article in the August 1967 edition of Vogue magazine – aka THE article – Dr Orentreich explained how great skin can be created. It was a fascinating article, and one that was also read by Evelyn Laude –  daughter in law of Estée. A meeting was promptly set up between Carol Phillips, Dr Orentreich and Estée Lauder, and ‘Clinique’ was born.

The idea that great skin could be created with the righ products marked a new era in skincare, and in 1968 the world famous 3-Step Skin Care System was introduced. Barely a year later, Clinique opened its first UK beauty counter, and  has since become on of the most trusted prestige beauty brands in the world.

The science behind the brand

The first ever dermatologist-developed prestige beauty brand, all of clinique’s skincare products are 100% fragrance-free and allergy tested. They debuted with 117 products, of which, the 3-Step System – cleansing with facial soap, exfoliating dead skin cells with the clarifying lotion, hydrating and balancing the skin with moisturiser – will forever be the star of the lineup.

Benefit Cosmetics Halloween How-To

Benefit Cosmetics Halloween How-To: Pretty Petrifying Pierott

Stuck for ideas this halloween? We can’t get enough of this look from benefit cosmetics!

‘Fortnite’ ‘Harley Quinn’ and unicorns might be the leading searches for halloween costumes in 2018, but we’re *obsessed* with this Pierott look from Amy-Lou Faulkner, event co-ordintator and make up artist at benefit!

The perfect balance of pretty and creepy, it’s also simple enough to recreate without needing your bestie to help you, and best of all? ZERO pore-clogging facepaint required! Here’s how to get the look:

 

Pretty Petrifying Pierott – get the look:

Step 1: Start by applying Porefessional Pearl all over your face – your base needs to last through trick AND treat!

Step 2: Next, apply Hello Happy foudndation  in shade one (the lighter the better to create that ghostly glow!), and Boiing Airbrush Concealer in shade one to build  fiendishly flawless coverage.

Step 3: Using Gimme Brow+ Eyebrow Gel, gently fill in brows to add a soft definition to your brow’s arches. Then, to open the eyes out,  sweep High Brow highlighter pencil under the arch and blend.

Step 4: Using the Vanity Flare eyeshadow palette,  sweep the shade ‘Ripe Plum’ over the lids to add hollow contour to the eye. This needs serious smoking and blending – the bigger the better! Follow by using They’re Real Push Up Liner in black to line the top and  water line.

Step 5: Finish off the eyes by applying a BADgal Bang mascara to top and bottom lashes

Step 6: Next, grab BadGal Waterproof Eye Liner Pencil – this is for your lips!  I used the joker as inspiration for this and over lined to create devilishly devine pout. Once you’re happy with the shape, fill it in and add a little lip balm to create a sheen.

Step 7: Go Go Tint time! Perfect for creating the pink nose, Go Go is waterproof so will stay in place all night long.

Step 8: Finish the whole look by lightly contouring your cheekbones with Hoola Contour Stick, and sweeping Dandelion Twinkle across the forehead and down the nose for a bootiful glow! I added stick on craft gems to complete the look.

Pumpkins and Pout,

Amy-Lou xo

WIN! Energy Boosters Set From Neom Organics

Recharge your beauty routine + WIN £85 worth of Neom goodies!

You might be looking forward to an extra hour in bed this weekend thanks to the clocks going back, but here’s three ways to recharge your beauty routine that are better than sleep – yes, really! 

The clocks go back this Sunday (28th October 2018) but rather than spending an extra hour asleep, we’ll be bounding out of bed thanks to Neom! Their Scent To Boost Your Energy Range is complex blend of 21 first-pressed essential oils such as lemon and basil, purposefully chosen to encourage pure, natural energy.

For your chance to win a selection of Scent To Boost Your Energy goodies worth £85, simply enter the competition below and tell us how you’ll be spending your extra hour! Here’s our ideal way to start the day:

1. Relax in the bath

How many of us make time for a bath nowadays? Especially in the morning?! Though delightfully relaxing, baths don’t have to be before bed. Rather than spending an extra hour lounging in bed, try waking up slowly with the Neom Organics Energy Burst Bath & Shower Drops. Catch up on social media, watch an episode of your favourite show, tune into the morning news or finally start reading that book you’ve been meaning to read- you’ll be ready for the day in no time!

2. Pop a face mask on

Everyone loves a face mask, but the Sleep Power Recharge Mask from thisworks is an allbeauty favourite! Designed to recharge and re-energise skin, this bright blue mask helps clear skin and leaves it feeling softer and looking more refreshed. Apply an even layer all over your face and leave for at least 30 minutes.

3. Exfoliate

Probably the most skipped part of anyshower routine, exfoliating is super important to prevent dead skin build-up and unclog pores. It’s also a great way to add a little zing in your step in the morning! We love the Grumpy Cow Uplifting Shower Scrub from Cowshed. Made from bamboo scrub particles and with energising ginseng extracts, massge into wet skin to boost circulation and nourish skin.

Why Looking After Your Feet Should Be Your Top Priority

Why looking after your feet should be your top priority this winter

With a change in season fast approaching and temperatures starting to drop, it’s even more important to step up our beauty routines, and that applies to foot-care too!

And just because our feet go into hiding in Autumn and Winter, doesn’t mean we should forget about them. In fact, feet tend to needeven more care and care during the colder months thanks to the colder air, central heating, and closed and often tighter-wearing shoes. It’s time ramp up the foot pampering now more than ever!

Why is it important to care for your feet?

Research has shown that the blood supply in the feet is hugely affected by the fluctuating temperature. So when the temperature drops and your feet become cold, your heels can become incredibly hard and crack.

Did you know? Tights and socks can restrict your foot’s blood supply, causing cold, dry feet”

How to prevent dry, cracked soles:

In order to keep the soles of your feet healthy and happy for this season and beyond, it’s important to exfoliate and moisturise them regularly to prevent the build up of hard skin.  For beautifully soft feet all-year round, we’d recommend the best-selling Exfoliation Foot Peel andwith the newly launched Extra Rich Foot Cream from Baby Foot. 

What makes Baby Foot so special?

Described as ‘weird’, ‘gross’ and the ‘best thing ever’, Baby Foot is Japan’s no.1 selling foot peel.  A total foot care package for the feet, the Exfoliation Foot Peel takes just 60-minutes to get to work on dead skin build up. Formulated with 17 types of natural extracts which both exfoliate and moisturise at the same time, it works harder than any pedicure can achieve. The principal ingredient in the Exfoliation Foot Peel is fruit acid; a super gentle ingredient when compared with other acids.

Baby foot how it works allbeauty blog

How does Baby foot work?

The unique fruit acid formula penetrates the layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the desmosomes which holds the layers together. With this process, the skin is un-damaged and peels away from the fresh layers beneath; with no pain experienced at all!

When the peeling is all done (which is usually around the 10-day mark), your feet will look and feel as though they’re reborn and softer than you could ever achieve with the typical pedicure tools available.

How can I maximise the results of Baby Foot?

The Extra Rich Foot Cream is the essential aftercare care product to the Exfoliation Foot Peel. This rich and hydrating cream is enriched with Shea butter and provides your feet with exactly what they need post-peel; intense much-needed moisture! It’s just really important to remember that the Extra Rich Foot Cream should only to be applied once the peeling process is completely finished.

Exfoliation and moisturising your feet really do go hand-in-hand. After-all, it’s hard for moisturiser to penetrate the skin deeply if hard skin is there; highlighting the need for both products for the absolute maximum results.
