Get The Look: Bare | Clozette

A nude makeup look, more popularly known as the ‘no makeup’ makeup look, is both the easiest and hardest to master. You have to have the right products that will complement your specific skin tone; otherwise, it could make you look sickly (yikes!).

Lucky for us makeup addicts, Clinique partnered with pop artist Zara Larsson to create the industry’s first interactive music video, Play With Pop – allowing Clinique to showcase how women express a different emotion or side of themselves when changing their lipstick!

So to learn how to perfect the ‘Bare’ look in Zara’s music video, keep scrolling below!


Who is it for: Everyone

That is what’s great about the ‘Bare’ look; it’s so versatile that anyone can adapt it. All you girls who want to tap into your feminine, more natural side, simply wear this easy look and you’ll instantly notice a difference!

How to rock the look: Add a flush of colour

To rock a nude look, opt for rose and beige tones! Apply Clinique’s Lid Pop in Vanilla all over your eyelids and on the inner corners to really brighten up your peepers.

Next, groom your brows so that they gorgeously frame your face, and layer on coats of brow gel to define them! And to complete the look, apply Clinique's Cheek Pop in Ginger Pop on the apples of your cheeks for a soft flush and swipe Clinique's Lip Colour + Primer in Nude Pop on your lips to give it that chic nude colour!



Ask any woman what she wants her skin to be and she’ll tell you these three things: smooth, translucent, and radiant. These three qualities can also be found in peonies, flowers that are known throughout the world for their delicate beauty, which are also the main ingredient in L’OCCITANE’s Pivoine Sublime range!

The birth of the Pivoine Sublime collection last year unveiled an exquisite line of perfecting products for every skin type, which were all powered by the Perfecting Peony Complex – a peony extract that is combined with active ingredients that refine skin’s texture, hydrate, minimise pores, and blur away imperfections such as fine lines.

Now L’OCCITANE has released 3 new products which will allow you to complete your perfecting skincare routine through cleansing, exfoliating, and toning with the new 2 in 1 Perfecting Scrub, Perfecting Make-up Remover, and Perfecting Toner.

So keep scrolling down to learn more about how these new additions will give you the skin of your dreams!


Perfecting Make-up Remover

The Perfecting Make-up Remover is the first step in your skincare routine as it removes all traces of makeup, dirt, and grime. It's enhanced with “Pivoine Perfecteur” extract, which gently melts away makeup and other impurities without stripping the skin of its moisture, resulting in clean, petal-soft skin!

2 in 1 Perfecting Scrub

After cleansing your skin, take the Perfecting Scrub to slough away any dead skin cells and reveal smoother and more refined skin. You can use it either as a face scrub or as a face mask, as its gel-to-oil texture and delicate micro granules will gently exfoliate your skin and leave it supple and ready for the next step!

Perfecting Toner

To finish your cleansing routine, take the Perfecting Toner to refresh and hydrate your complexion, and get it ready to drink in your serum and moisturiser! The Perfecting Toner is enriched with "Pivoine Perfecteur" extract as well to minimise pores and give your complexion a burst of lightweight hydration!


L'OCCITANE Pivoine Sublime 2 in 1 Perfecting Scrub (RM128 for 100ml), Perfecting Make-up Remover (RM105 for 200ml), and Perfecting Toner (RM98 for 200ml) will be available from June 2016 onwards in all L'OCCITANE boutiques and counters in Malaysia.

In the beauty world, once summer rolls in, it means that one, its time to switch our heavy foundations and moisturisers for lighter options; and two, that we have to immediately protect our skin and apply brightening products because the sun’s harmful UV rays can damage it, leading to dull, dehydrated skin.

While switching up our foundations and moisturisers is easy, combating dull skin tends to be trickier as you have to find products that perfectly work for your skin and actually deliver on its claims.   

Luckily, we have below 6 skincare tips that will easily help you fight dull, dehydrated skin for a brighter complexion this summer!


Don't skimp on the SPF

SPF will protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, preventing the formation of dark spots and brighten up your complexion over time; so don’t skip sunscreen, whether you’re indoors or outdoors! Plus, there are a ton of sunblocks in the market now, so whatever your skin type is, you’ll surely find your perfect one! Our recommendations? Biore, VMV Hypoallergenics, Kiehl’s, Crème Simon, and Nuxe!

Start using a serum

Serums are "moisturisers on fleek” – because their ingredients are more potent and concentrated, this allows them to penetrate deeper into your skin and distribute its amazing ingredients! If you want to get brighter skin this summer, invest in a good quality serum, such as The Body Shop Drops of Light Pure Healthy Brightening Serum! Its lightweight formula quickly absorbs into the skin to deliver efficient brightening and hydrating ingredients!

Drink lots of water and eat lycopene-rich foods

Due to hot weather, we sweat; and when we sweat we lose water in our bodies, which can lead to dehydration. So always drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day to keep your body and skin hydrated and bright! And as much as possible, squeeze in lycopene-rich foods into your diet such as tomatoes, watermelons, papayas, mangoes, and carrots for that extra skin-brightening boost!

Use a sleeping mask

Sleeping masks are godsends when it comes to brightening your complexion because they nourish your complexion and lighten any dark spots or hyperpigmentation while you sleep, allowing you to wake up in the morning with rosier, more illuminated skin! If you’re wondering which sleeping mask to try out first, go for our holy grail LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask as its SLEEP-TOX™ technology purifies skin, while hydrating and revitalising it.

Opt for subtle highlighters

We all know the power of a great highlighter. So if you want to add extra brightness and luminosity to your complexion, strobe your face using subtle highlighters, such as the Hourglass Ambient Light Powders! Their soft shimmers will elegantly add dimension to your face to give you that dewy finish every one wants.

Don’t touch your face

The best thing you can do to not only brighten your skin, but keep it blemish-free and hydrated, is to not touch and pick at it. Leave your face alone; if you see a blemish popping up, treat it with some tea tree oil or salicylic acid! Don’t try to pop it because it might spread bacteria and scar. Trust us, try to avoid touching your face for a week and you will instantly see a difference!
