What do Emilia Clarke and the women on the Middle East have in common? They’ve all had to combat the effects of fiery heat on their skin. Yes, we stand by the fact that being Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, must only slightly differ to surviving an Arabian summer. With Game of Thrones well and truly over Clarke’s next big role requires just as much poise and power. Today, she is announced as the Clinique’s first global brand ambassador for skincare and makeup.
“I am so proud to join Clinique as the new Global Brand Ambassador. It is a skincare brand I have regularly used and to now be part of that family is such an honour. I love the confidence and happiness it brings to the people using their products,” says Clarke. The partnership aims to push the concept of happy life, happy skin. Understanding that everyone is different, on their own skincare journeys is also a key message. “Not only is Clinique timeless, but I’m proud to work with a brand that makes people feel included for who they are, and unapologetic about helping them to create great skin – no matter what their skin concern is,” adds Clarke.
Just like your skin, Clarke more than most understands that life always has its ups and downs. Launching her SameYou charity in March 2019, Clarke revealed her health struggles. Suffering from a pair of brain aneurysms in the early filming days of Game of Thrones, through the charity she aims to revolutionize recovery for young adults, following brain injuries and stroke. As for Clinique, they have always promoted empowering women through their skincare. The first dermatologist brand that is fully allergy tested, 100% fragrance-free and is formulated with no parabens and phthalates, their one wish for women is that they can achieve happy skin without compromise.
The Clinique iD collection is the first campaign Clarke will be fronting. The arrival of Clinique iD Dramatically Different™ Moisturizing BB-Gel and Clinique iD Dramatically Different™ Moisturizing Tone-Up Gel rounds out the 25 strong Clinique iD collection where consumers can create their own custom-blend moisturizer. Pumping up the hydration in the skin, you can adapt each formula to treat your unique skin concerns from blemishes to dullness and everything else in-between.
