We can’t all be #flawless (or can we?), but we sure can try!
After you’ve given your wardrobe a fresh revamp, show your makeup drawer some love too.
Here are some makeup must-haves for Singapore’s relentless hot weather.
Yves Saint Laurent’s Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof Mascara ($55) is clump-free, non-drying and stays on for hours. It deepens, darkens and thickens lashes for a richer look. Best of all, it’s easy to remove without torturing your eyelashes. Available at Tangs Plaza.
Tang Plaza L1, 310 Orchard Rd, Singapore 238864
Lips that Last
Luxe, long-lasting colours that nourish, moisturise and soften lips with each application: that is Tarte Lip Paint ($28). The paint-on pigments have a matte fi nish and the ergonomic applicator makes putting it on a pinch. Available in 10 shades. Available at Sephora.
(Hot) Mess No More
Blending colours effortlessly just got a lot easier with the soft-bristled Too Faced Kabuki Brush ($52). It works well with liquids and powders, plus a retractable cover means it won’t turn into a complete disaster in your bag. Available at Sephora.
Reflections’ Sun Protection Powder ($72) uses natural ingredients like tapioca starch and rosemary oil to hydrate and refresh skin and protect it from harmful UVA and UVB rays as well as environmental pollutants. Use it on its own or over an anti-aging BB Cream.
Prevent Makeup Melt
Even out your skin tone with VDL’s Colour Correcting Primer ($36) a go. Available in two shades, the mint green primer claims to help reduce redness while the lavender can help if dull or paler skin tones. It doesn’t weigh down on your face and will help set your foundation or powder so it stays on longer.
