CLINIQUE'S MULTI-TASKING HEROES
By Amelia Bell, 2 September 2020
Brightening, highlighting, contouring, concealing…. there’s not much this concealer can’t do. ‘The more you use it, the less you’ll need it,’ says Lisa. ‘Not only does it hydrate your skin for 24 hours and smooth any fine lines, it will actually visibly reduce any puffiness around the eyes, and minimise dark circles and other discolorations over time.’ Yep, this hybrid skincare/makeup formula basically works as a concealer and eye cream all in one go – plus, it's packed with hyaluronic acid, vit C and caffeine to brighten up your complexion.
Whether you’re on hol and lookin' for something light, or need some extra coverage during the winter months, Clinique’s expert Even Better foundation can create every kind of coverage you're after, so you don’t need a zillion different products. ‘I dial up three different coverages from this one bottle: for a natural look, I mix in a pearl-sized amount with Moisture Surge for a lightweight, “tinted-moisturiser” effect; for moderate coverage, I apply the foundation using a buff foundation brush; and for full coverage, I always use my fingers to add layers and build it up.’
If there’s one product that works double time, it’s Clinique's long-loved Moisture Surge. ‘If you want a few genius ways to use this moisturiser, it works as your daily moisturiser, a makeup primer, a five-minute moisturising mask or, for a glowy finish, mix it with Chubby Stick highlighter. Oh, and finally – rub any excess into your cuticles to give them some extra TLC.’ Pretty clever, eh?
‘I always use this as my lipstick and blusher… Just dot a tiny bit on your cheeks and blend with your fingers for a really subtle flush of colour. It can also double up as your lip balm too, as it's packed with skin-boosting ingredients like vitamin E to keep lips nourished and moisturised throughout the day.’ Use Clinique’s shade-match science to find the right colour based on your Clinique foundation shade.
If you CBA with a 10-step skincare routine, give your skin a 30-second workout with this all-in-one exfoliating hero. It's designed to de-flake, make your skin brighter, improve cell turnover and add radiance – which makes it basically one of the quickest and most efficient ways to cleanse and polish your skin when you're feelin' lazy. ‘My favourite thing about this product is that it doubles up as a lip scrub, too!’ says Lisa.
One of the first personalised skincare products of its kind, Clinique iD is a custom-blend moisturiser with 15 unique combinations depending on your skin type or concern – basically allowing you to create your very own bespoke product. Lisa's top tip? ‘For a quick refresh during the day, pump this once onto your hand and press onto your skin lightly – it will give you a cooling hydration boost and won’t disturb your makeup.’
