Get Red Carpet Ready – Beth Clements Backstage at the BAFTA’s


Hollywood's biggest stars are set to cross the Atlantic once again for the annual British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA's) in London on Sunday 10 February.  This year, we are absolutely thrilled to have our very own Lancôme Counter Manager Beth Clements being only one of two people supporting the skincare suite backstage. Beth talks us through this incredible accolade and the backstage skincare must haves to create the perfect canvas before the VIP's hit the makeup suite.

So Beth congratulations on being nominated you must be so excited?


I am so thrilled to be selected by my brand to be a skincare ambassador for Lancome backstage at the BAFTA’s. It’s going to be a super day. I simply can’t wait! 


What are the expectations of the day?


I’m to arrive for a 10am briefing ready for a 10.30am start. I will be working in the Lancôme Style suite at the Savoy Hotel in London. Altogether there will be a team of 10 of us from Lancome. Myself and another skincare expert and 8 make up artists, all of which have been personally selected. 


Whose skins are you going to be working on?


I will see 20-30 clients on the day to prepare their skin ready to then go on to the makeup suite. Every client I see will be a nominee for a BAFTA and I’m told that the bigger stars come later in the day, there may be Directors, sound engineers etc as well as actors and actresses.


Which products will you be using? Is there a specific brief?


The skin focus is to not use too much product, which is a good point to make as often women do use too much product on their skin. The products that we will be using have been selected in advance in order to create the best possible glowing skin canvas for the makeup artists.


The routine we will be doing for each client will be starting with a thorough double cleanse. My first product will be the Lancome Eau Micellaire Douceur, followed by the incredibly comforting Galatee Confort Cleansing Milk. Our star product the Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate will be used to target texture, fine lines, wrinkles, radiance and clarity. This super serum instantly reveals a glowy looking skin. Clearly a backstage must have! Not forgetting the eyes, the brand new Advanced Genifique Eye Cream is shaping up to be a client favourite. Reducing dark circles and instantly giving the eyes a rested, luminous wide awake feel….I think my clients will be grateful for this awesome product! Last, but by no means least I will be using the Absolue Soft Cream. This soft cream will help my clients skin to feel soothed and comfortable, whilst ensuring skin will look revitalised and luminous!! I think after this my clients will be ready to hit the makeup suite.
