On 30 August 2007, Clinique and gsport’s Kass Naidoo met with the gsport September gSTAR nominee, celebrated mountaineer Deshun Deysel, for a Clinique makeover and the first cover shoot for the gsport … for Girls! website.

Since she was 9, Deshun dreamt of climbing Mount Everest, and she is currently living her dream in more ways than one.

In 1996, earning just R2 000 a month in her job as a schoolteacher, her dream became reality when she was selected for the 1st South African Everest Expedition. She was the first black woman to set foot on Everest and she hasn’t looked back.

At Clinique, we believe that great skin can be created with the 3-Step
Skin Care System.

With products tailored to your skin type – cleanse,
exfoliate and moisturise – 3-Step remains one of the most simple,
effective and top-selling routes to a beautiful, healthy-looking skin.

Clinique Expert, Marion Laka, establishes Deshun’s skin type using
the Clinique Computer, which determines one’s skin-type based on eight
simple questions.

With Deshun’s dry skin (due to extreme temperatures and exercise) which
tends to be sensitive, Marion recommends the following products to
address dryness, and alleviate irritation which causes sensitivity:


Basic 3-Step Skin Care System
:

  • Liquid Facial Soap – Mild
  •  
    Clarifying Lotion – Clarifying Lotion 1
  • Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

 

Foundation Swatching

Treatment Products
:

  •  
    Turnaround Concentrate Visible Skin Renewer for radiant, glowing skin,
  •  
    Gentle Exfoliator to refine skin’s texture without drying effects,
  •  
    Advanced Stop Signs Eye SPF 15 Cream with built in technologies for brightening the eye area and protection from UVA/UVB rays,
  •  
    Advanced Stop Signs Serum for discolouration, and for reducing the appearance of pigmentation for uneven skin tone, and
  • Superdefense Triple Action Moisturizer SPF 25 (Very Dry to Dry Formula)
    for super-hydration, support of skin’s natural defense system against
    antioxidants and protection from harmful UVA/UVB sun exposure.

Everything we know about skin care goes into our foundations. Clinique formulates foundation to meet skin’s needs.

Having taken care of the skin and foundation requirements, the real fun began with completing Deshun’s Clinique Makeover.

A sun-kissed look was chosen for Deshun to compliment her lifestyle with a touch of glow. It’s the ideal look to give you a gorgeous glow and plenty of heads turning! 

 

Deshun shows an easy and confident smile as she continues to scale heights, even in an urban setting setting!

 

Eyes were naturally defined using Clinique’s Colour Surge Eyeshadow
Quad in "Spicy", Quickliner For Eyes in Dark Chocolate, and Clinique’s
number one-selling mascara, High Impact Mascara in Black.

Cheeks were given a warm glow using Blushing Blush Powder in Bashful Blush.

Lips were defined and filled-in using Quickliner For Lips in Chocolate
Chip and plumped and glossed with Full Potential Lips Plump and Shine
in Beach Bunny.

This summer is all about a luminous, healthy, sun-kissed face. Clinique’s NEW Uplighting Liquid Illuminator, a sheer liquid highlighter, is the new must-have accessory.
