Clémence von Mueffling was born and raised in Paris. She studied economics and finance at the Université Dauphine in Paris and the prestigious ESCP-EAP program, during which she studied for a year each in Oxford, Madrid, and Paris.
A true beauty and cosmetics professional, Clémence von Mueffling earned her stripes working for iconic brands such as Clarins, Puig, and Dior before turning to beauty journalism at Casas & Gente magazine. Her transition felt very natural as writing is something of a family affair: both Mueffling’s mother and grandmother were beauty editors at the prestigious French Vogue
She moved to New York City in 2007 and launched the online magazine Beauty and Well-Being to great acclaim in 2014 and, as W Magazine writes, “Beauty is in Clémence von Mueffling’s blood.”
In her new book, Ageless Beauty the French Way Clémence is weaving wisdom from three generations of beauty editors with insiders’ tips from top beauty experts.
The book is a luxurious entertaining, unparalleled guide to every French beauty secret for all women.
