Clinique, the number one prestige cosmetics brand in the United States, and Teen Vogue, the leading teen fashion magazine, are launching the second annual Clinique Fresh Faces Tour today. The 13-city tour will travel to college campuses and select Nordstrom locations from September 14th through November 9th to inspire young women interested in fashion, beauty and publishing careers and educate them about how to break into these desirable industries.
One accomplished young woman who embodies integrity and healthy beauty will be selected as the next Clinique Fresh Face and will win a coveted summer internship with Clinique along with a one-week, behind-the-scenes experience at Teen Vogue in New York City. A panel of Clinique and Teen Vogue experts will select 25 semi-finalists and America will narrow down the search to five finalists who will be flown to New York City to tour the Clinique and Teen Vogue headquarters and receive VIP treatment with a photo shoot that will appear in an upcoming issue of Teen Vogue. The five finalists will be interviewed by a panel of insiders who will select the next Clinique Fresh Face.
“We are thrilled to kick-off our second annual Clinique Fresh Faces Tour,” says Lynne Greene, Brand President of Clinique, Origins and Ojon. “We are offering young women across America the opportunity to get a fresh makeup and hair look as well as a chance to meet and engage with professionals in the world of beauty, fashion and publishing. At Clinique, it has always been our goal to educate women and give them the skills to build their self-confidence and help them become the women they aspire to be.”
Commencing at Boston University and ending at the University of Southern California, each college campus will host a panel of leading industry movers and shakers, such as Eva Chen, Beauty and Health Director of Teen Vogue, who will give insider tips, share personal stories about idiosyncratic career paths and highlight common threads of career advice and experience for a road map to success. Clinique Facebook fans can post their questions online and the panelists will answer them live on-site and post the responses on Clinique’s fan page.
“I’ve had the opportunity to meet a lot of young girls and I’m always impressed with how career-focused they are,” says Amy Astley, Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue. “This tour gives them access to some of the most influential women in beauty and fashion for first hand advice, and provides them the ultimate beauty makeover to help get them started.”
During the tour, Clinique will also offer the ultimate beauty destination in their “Mobile Beauty Trunks” to give young women a complete beauty makeover with fresh makeup and hair looks from a team of experts. Afterwards, they will have their photo taken by a fashion photographer that can be posted on Facebook and shared with family and friends. They are also invited to relax and listen to music, post their headshots, shop on Clinique.com and apply for the internship program on-site in the Clinique Fresh Faces Tour Internet Lounge.
