The Debrief: Bring the red-carpet vibes to the next bus stop you find yourself queuing at...

By the time we’ve reached our twenties, we’ve all heard enough fairytales to be familiar with the idea that true beauty and confidence comes from within. The best way to be beautiful is to start by feeling good on the inside, and the glow will shine out of your pores, as if you’re a human disco ball or artisanal lantern. For our money, this is some of the best advice around - it works for us, and some day it will probably work for our great great grandchildren. But is it possible to flip it over? Can you create a fabulous look that will make you feel great too?

Well, we think Clinique’s new offerings can turn even the quiet and camera shy into go-getting confidence queens. It’s all about building colour and definition in a smart way - and the new products are so easy to apply that they can’t be affected by clumsy hands. The New Chubby Lash™ Fattening Mascara in Jumbo Jet will lift your lashes and your look, making you feel like your head is far above the clouds. Instant Lift For Brows enhances the intense glamour and will make sure you bring a red carpet vibe to any bus stop you queue at.

If you want your make up to make you double down on your confidence levels and release your inner A-lister, Clinique’s ‘Superstar’ look is the one for you. Even the most hardcore WhatsApp addicts occasionally like to stay quiet and let their eyes do all the talking. Follow the Superstar steps and channel the old school movie stars, telling a thousand stories without saying a word.
