  • You could be mentored by leading beauty expert and co-founder of skincare brand, Liz Earle

    Seventeen of the most influential women in Britain have joined forces with Marie Claire to become part of Inspire & Mentor with Marie Claire, our brand new campaign.

    The campaign aims to help women scale new heights in industry, and from fashion to film, science to media, we have experts on them all.

    By pairing short-listed applicants with the mentors we believe will help them the most, we hope to help women fulfil their potential, get that dream job, or launch that business they’ve always hoped for.


    Beauty expert and company co-founder Liz Earle is just one of the inspirational women you could be mentored by as part of the new campaign.

    Liz started her company with business partner Kim in the 80s, and has watched her Liz Earle beauty products rocket to success.

    Since founding the company, Liz’s team has grown from two to around 400, and her fuss-free skincare range is now sold in 80 countries around the world.

    ‘I think we both underestimated the huge amount of hard work it would take to make the company a success,’ she told us.

    ‘We both had small children, so we would start work when they left for school, break mid-afternoon to collect them, cook dinner and then help with homework. When they were in bed, we’d restart our days and work late into the evening.’

    But Liz was ecstatic when all that hard work finally paid off.

    Our big break came when we appeared in the famed Millennium gold-cover edition of British Vogue in December 1999, she said.

    ‘Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser was featured on a page with the most iconic beauty products of the millennium.

    ‘The coverage set the phone ringing off the hook and we have literally never looked back.’

    And what advice would she offer others? ‘The best advice I’ve ever been given is crawl, walk, run – basically don’t rush anything and take your time to make sure that everything you do is right for everyone involved.’
