5 Pro Tips On How To Sleep Better | Clozette

Sleeping refreshes our mind and helps our body rejuvenate itself. While it may seem like an easy task, some find it hard to get a good night’s rest. Check out cleo.com.sg’s top tips on how to get better shut-eye.

Create the right environment

Dimming the lights lets your brain know that it is tired and in need of rest. It conditions your system to embrace a more dormant state.

Use essential oils

In addition to setting the right ambiance for the room, using essential oils to relax your mind can also lead to better sleep. Experts claim that oils such as lavender, jasmine and bergamot have the ability to give a sense of calmness that can result in better dreams.

Fall/Winter 2017 designs are now out in the market. And while we love being updated with the latest fashion trends, we still get a kick at looking back at previous designs and predicting which ones are going to make an epic comeback. 

For today's #ThrowbackThursday, we're looking at past Fall/Winter runway moments to see which styles that graced the catwalk back then should be revived for today's fashionphiles. 

Gianfranco Ferrè Pret a Porter Autumn-Winter '85/'86

The '80s will forever be remembered as the era of flashy fashion, but not all designers released over-the-top designs then. Such is the case with Gianfranco Ferrè's pret-a-porter A/W '85/'86 collection. It was not as bright and extravagant but still had a bit of flamboyance. 

You can see that some designs here already had their modern revivals like the high-waisted wide leg trousers and fleece-lined jackets. But what we're eyeing here are the big shoulder pads, the beautiful purple shift blouse, and the multi-coloured stripes design

Valentino Haute Couture Autumn-Winter '89/'90

Valentino's designs are characterised as very classy, ladylike with a touch of edginess to it. In other words, it's undeniably divine. Their designs for the A/W '89/'90 Haute Couture collection are no exception. 

The collection was abundant of checks and stripes, both of which made a comeback this season. What we're looking out for is the revival of the exquisite geometrical prints and mosaic designs.

Yves Saint Laurent Haute Couture Autumn-Winter '95/'96

Yves Saint Laurent designs never fail to impress. Just look at the beautiful pieces from Haute Couture A/W '95/'96. The styles are timeless and most are still popular today. Take note of the lovely silk skirt, the lightweight, cream outwear with a hoodie (perfect for the tropics, right?), and double-breasted clothing design. We'll be crossing our fingers that these will once again hit the runway.

Versace Autumn-Winter '02/'03

These futuristic and fashion-forward designs by Donatella emerged in the early years of the new millennia for the A/W 02/03 fashion show. Don't you agree that those mesmerising psychedelic prints should have a resurgence? Considering the current trends, we're thinking that it will take a more subtle, minimalist design — more of an accent than the main design.

Did you also catch the candy pink clothing? We're all about millennial pink nowadays but it would be nice to explore the deeper hues of pink in the coming years.

It's often believed that a job in fashion modelling is a great jumpstart if you want to ultimately pursue other related careers. We've seen numerous fashion models penetrate and thrive in other industries. Alexa Chung became a fashion designer, and Cara Delevingne transitioned to acting, among others. And then there are some who launched their own beauty brands.

Armed with a recognisable name, familiarity with the best beauty products and industry connections, these ladies are in the perfect position to influence the beauty community and start a new beauty empire. Let's take a look at what they've got to offer. 

Miranda Kerr: KORA Organics

Founded in 2009, KORA Organics has been in the market for quite some time now and the brand has already garnered several beauty awards. They offer a wide range of certified organic and natural products for every skin type. Some of their most popular offerings are the Kora Organics 3 Step Systems, Noni Glow Face Balm, and Noni Glow Body Oil. So far, so good, Miranda!

Claudia Schiffer: Claudia Schiffer Makeup

Claudia Schiffer's capsule makeup collection, in collaboration with Artdeco Cosmetics, was launched just this month but it's already creating buzz. Kudos to Claudia for the beautiful, elegant packaging. As for the makeup products, the beauty community is yet to give its verdict. But by the looks of them, the creamy lipsticks are promising. Other products that we're anticipating are the No Colour Setting powder in Sheer Cloud, Illuminator Precision Highlighter in Glow and the quad eyeshadows.

Josie Maran: Josie Maran Cosmetics

Josie Maran Cosmetics is guided by the motto "luxury with a conscience". True to their word, their star ingredient — pure, organic Argan oil — is obtained through fair trade from co-ops of Moroccan women. It's especially worth noting that Josie started her brand back in 2007 when the use of Argan oil was not as ubiquitous as it is today. Despite the increased competition in the market, her OG Argan Moonstone Drops remains a best-seller. 

Cindy Joseph: BOOM by Cindy Joseph

Most supermodels enter the industry at a young age, sometimes even before they were of legal age. But Cindy Joseph has a different story. She started her modelling career in her middle age. Before her rise as a model, she was a makeup artist and now she already has her own cosmetic brand called BOOM.

BOOM by Cindy Joseph is a "pro-age cosmetic line for women of every generation." Both the products and what the brand stands for have gained praises from consumers worldwide. Their Boomsilk moisturiser and Boomstick Trio are favourites among the beauty community. Great job, Cindy!

Zara Mohamed Abdulmajid (Iman): IMAN Cosmetics

Supermodel Iman knew firsthand how challenging it can be for women of colour to find the right shade of makeup for their skin. And so, when she had the opportunity to create a beauty brand that caters to women of all colours, she launched IMAN Cosmetics. Almost two decades after its establishment, IMAN Cosmetics is now considered by many to be a pioneer in creating cosmetics especially for women of colour. Recently, they launched an improved version of their celebrated foundations, the New Luxury Concealing Foundation.
