5 Mantras To Live By For A Flawless Year | Clozette

It’s the start of a brand new year — the time to charge everything to experience and get ready for another ride. There’s no way to tell what the future holds, but if you equip yourself with the right mindset – and the right flawless base — you’ll have a better chance, and double the confidence, at being able to hurdle whatever challenges you may face.

Ahead, some mantras shared by these beauty influencers (all beautifully made up with the iconic Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation) you can live by to look forward to a flawless year.

#FreedomTo Express My Creativity — Roanna 

Letting our creative juices flow, no matter what the outlet may be, is a great way to not only relieve our minds from stress but also enrich our soul. So in the coming year, make sure that you embrace your inner artist, whether it’s by singing more than you used to or enrolling to a makeup masterclass.

#FreedomTo Be The Star Of My Own Life — Melissa Jane

Women often lead lives that are for others, but we say don’t forget to put yourself on top of your list. You can only give what you have, so don’t be scared to be the star of your own life. In shining, you’ll be able to inspire others to do the same.

#FreedomTo Be Naturally You — Zahra 

Take the new year as a chance for you to celebrate being naturally you. From loving yourself completely to embracing things that will enhance your natural beauty, go for them! Stay looking naturally flawless, not just internally but also outside with the help of Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation. It now comes in 40 diverse shades, so you won’t have a hard time finding the right fit for you. You know how important it is to find just the right shade in order for your makeup to look natural! Plus, it has 10cm high coverage that delivers a skin-like finish. Aside from that, this face base is also water- and sweat-resistant, transfer-proof and long-lasting.

#FreedomTo Be Every Version Of Myself — Yan Teng 

We’re never just one thing. Some of us are mums who run our own businesses. Others are happily single women who travel for a living. And the list goes on. It’s a disservice to be tied to one definition of ourselves. Make sure you discover and embrace every version of yourself and nurture them — guiltlessly!

#FreedomTo Do More of What Makes You Happy — Min 

There’s freedom in being able to do what makes you happy, and you should also know that it’s a privilege to actually enjoy the freedom to do that. So before you think twice about pursuing your passions, remember that our time on Earth is limited. And it would be a waste to not go for what makes our hearts sing.

Say it with us: FRI-YAY! Another week has gone by so quickly that we're sure you missed a thing or two when it comes to what's hot and latest. But as always, we've got you covered. From Shu Uemura coming back to the Philippines to the continuous rise of Egg-stagram, here are some of this week's top headlines, curated just for you. 

Shu Uemura comes back to the Philippines

It's still fresh (and painful) in our memories when Shu Uemura closed all their retails stores in the Philippines two years ago. But now it's time to wipe away the tears as the beloved beauty brand comes back to the country via Sephora Philippines, ready to deliver their best-sellers straight to your doorstep. 

Lush Goddess goes global

Remember the special bath bomb Lush released as a nod to Ariana Grande's God Is A Woman single? If you've been wanting to get your hands on it, now is the time. Unleash your inner goddess as you soak into the rich scents of jasmine, oudh, sandalwood and more as Lush Goddess goes global. Grab it at your nearest Lush outlet and be on your way towards a celestial pampering. 

The year of Egg-stagram

Unless you've gone on a social media detox for the last couple of weeks, we're sure you've heard about an egg beating Kylie Jenner for the most liked photo on Instagram. But the egg take over doesn't stop there. This week, the egg gets the beauty treatment and the gurus are shaking as its winged liner is sharper than what any of us could ever achieve. The video tutorial for the look made by Instagrammer Sonya Miro is almost at 630,000 views and the finished photo has garnered 22,000 likes and counting. Talk about an egg-centric (we can't help the puns, sorry!) month for Instagram, don't you think?

Netflix rolls out an Instagram story sharing feature

The movie-streaming site takes a page from Spotify's book as it rolls out an Instagram story sharing feature to iOS users. This allows Netflix subscribers to share their recommendations across platforms and make them accessible to others with a single tap. Of course, one must have a Netflix account to enjoy the feature both ways. The feature is said to soon be available for Android users, too. 

Nikkie de Jager appointed as Marc Jacobs Beauty's first-ever Global Artistry Adviser

Better known in the YouTube community as NikkieTutorials, Marc Jacobs Beauty appoints Nikkie de Jager as their first-ever Global Artistry Adviser and we couldn't think of anyone better. The new role gives the beauty guru and influencer an opportunity to be in-the-know of the brand's product development process and create collaborative content for both her own platform and Marc Jacobs Beauty's.  


Amorepacific's high-end beauty brand HERA has chosen BLACKPINK's Jennie as their new brand ambassador. Joining Korean actress Jun Ji-Hyun, who has been the face of the brand since 2015, we can't wait to see where this joint endorsement will head to.
