    • 3 tips to make eyeliner last all day in Singapore weather!


      Biggest beauty goal: Getting your liner to lock into place. I mean, there’s little point in adding “eye-conic” eyeliner looks to your repertoire, only to have them slip and slide off your lids before your office pantry break is up, right?

      Which is why I’m so psyched to be privy to these top professional tricks you can apply to your everyday eyeliner that’ll have it staying put from Singapore dusk to Singapore dawn:

      TIP 1. The chief culprits of a fleeting flick are excess sebum and shine on your eyelids, so you’ll want to prime with a powder prior to swiping on your liner. Simply sweep on the tiniest smidgen of translucent face powder along your lash line, patting it up onto your lids for maximum sebum-sopping power.

      Switch to your eyeliner of choice (long-wear pencil formulas are fantastic for this purpose, of course) and go about your business as usual.

      TIP 2. Once you’re satisfied, set with another layer of loose powder. Take it from an eyeliner expert: “I find that this extra step goes a long way in clinging onto the creamy consistency of most eyeliners,” says Dollei Seah, creative director of Makeup Entourage.

      Because you want to abstain from too much tugging on your already lined peepers, pick up your powder with a small fluffy brush and dust it on without pressure or pressing of any sort.

      TIP 3. For well nigh indestructible results, take it up another notch and layer on a water-resistant gel liner in a complementary colour (black-on-black or blue-on-black, for instance).

      Can't keep track? The sequence, then, is as such: Powder, pencil, powder, gel. This final flick of souped up sheen seals in everything for an extra intense finish.

      Tadah, sticking to this easy-peasy three-step plan is your best bet for budge-proof beauty. Here’s to keeping your flick “on fleek”, as the hip young ones are wont to say these days!

    • 6 best gel and liquid eyeliners for drawing thin lines

      The one makeup staple we can’t do without? Eyeliner. Doesn’t matter if you’re after dramatic cat-eyes or the subtle Korean beauty flick, one of these 6 will suit your needs

      #1 Maybelline HyperSharp Wing Liner in Intense Black, $23.90 
      Available at all leading personal care stores and Sasa

      This black eyeliner feels soft on the skin but provides just the right amount of stiffness to draw a precise line. It is versatile, too. Use the 0.01mm-thin tip to draw a sharp line, or tilt the brush for a thicker flick.

      #2 Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner, $38
      Available at all Benefit counters and in Sephora stores

      The flexible angled tip of this gel eyeliner makes it easy to follow along the lash line, though it takes time to get used to, and works best if you like dramatic, matte black cat-eyes. Just a word of caution: You need a good oil-based remover for this – it does not budge!

      #3 Shu Uemura calligraph:ink Liquid Eyeliner Pen, $58, refill $29
      Available at Shu Uemura stores and counters. An additional brown shade will be available from July

      For a liquid eyeliner, Shu Uemura’s calligraph:ink Liquid Eyeliner Pen is great for tightlining. Its calligraphy-inspired brush makes drawing small flicks at the edge of the eye easy, too. It stayed on our eyes for a full-day without smudging.

      #4 K-Palette 1-Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner, $19.90
      Available in two shades at selected Watsons, Sasa and BHG stores

      If you’re always in a hurry, pop K-Palette’s 1-Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner in your bag. It dries instantly. Plus, the formula is infused with lash-loving essences that help to promote healthy growth.

      #5 Diorshow Waterproof Pro Liner, $37
      Available at Dior Beauty stores and counters

      The problem with liquid eyeliner? It’s difficult to apply if you don’t have a steady hand. Try the Diorshow Waterproof Pro Liner if you have this problem. It glides onto the lash line like a pencil, but has the same deep intensity as a liquid eyeliner.

      #6 Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen, $34
      Available at all Clinique counters from September

      Clinique Defining Liner Best liquid pencil eyeliners for drawing sharp cat-eye lines and flicks.png

      Clinique’s Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen has a nicely tapered edge that helps to draw thin, sharp lines in a single stroke. It may feel a little light on the hand, but all you need to do is to draw little dashes across your lash line and connect them after – pretty easy, all right.

    • 3 beauty must-haves for a short budget holiday


      Planning on a short vacation this long weekend? Chances are, if you’re flying it’s somewhere not too far away, and maybe even on a budget airline. And who wants the hassle of a check-in bag when you’re just going to be spending a few days by the poolside or beach somewhere? Pack light and smart, taking only what you really need and want.

      #1 A BB cream with UV protection

      The best part about a BB cream with SPF protection? It eliminates the need to pack moisturisers and sunblock, with many BB creams already covering those bases. Try 3CE Back to Baby BB Cream SPF35 PA++. It’s got moisturising properties with hyaluronic acid, and promises to brighten your skin tone without looking greyish.

      3CE Back to Baby BB Cream SPF35 PA++, $25.

      #2 Waterproof eyeliner

      The easiest way to look good with minimal effort? Eyeliner, always. It’s all you really need (alongside your favourite concealer) to be selfie-ready. We love Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner as a travel staple because it’s got great smudge-proof staying power and is so easy to apply.

      Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Black, $29.

      #3 Tinted lip balm

      All that swimming is bound to leave your lips feeling dry and chapped. If you’re going for a fuss-free beauty look, try a tinted lip balm like Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lip Balm in Wild Cherry. It’s got a lovely deep cherry hue and boasts nourishing ingredients like beeswax, coconut oil and rich cherry oil.

      Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lip Balm in Wild Cherry, $8.

    • 9 common makeup mistakes you need to stop making right now


      #1 Swatching foundation on your wrist
      Not sure about you, but one of the worst bits of advice I received about choosing foundation shades when I was young was being told to try it on my wrist. My wrists are two to three shades lighter than my face, so this is just a huge no no. 

      Testing foundation on your face might be inaccurate if you have redness or sallow skin. You want your foundation to match your neck (and the rest of your visible chest area), so you can try swatching it on the side of your neck. Find the shade you think works best that is made for your skin’s undertones. Try one shade lighter and one darker one to see which blends into your skin the best. 
      #2 Using a lip pencil on just the outer line of your lips
      Yes, lip liners are technically for lining your lips, but the fact is, your lipstick will disappear over the course of the day, leaving an obvious ring of liner behind. Stick to softer textured lip liners (some pencils might be too harsh) and fill your lips in more, blending the liner towards the middle of your lips. This also keeps your lipstick in place longer.

      #3 Blowing on your brushes to get rid of excess product
      Yes, making sure you aren’t picking up too much of an eyeshadow or powder product with your brushes is important, but you shouldn’t be blowing your brushes. That just leads to more bacteria finding its way onto the bristles of your brushes before you use it. Try tapping the brush on the edge of your compact or any other solid surface to shake off the excess.

      #4 Not cleaning your brushes regularly
      Quite frankly, there are barely enough hours in a day to do all the things we want to do without worrying about cleaning our makeup brushes, right? I myself am guilty of going weeks upon weeks without washing my brushes. 

      If you find yourself breaking out more, it’s definitely worth sparing ten minutes to get them washed. Make sure you dry your brushes at an angle with the fibres pointing downward (the bottom should be elevated slightly) so that water doesn’t end up in the base of your brush which can breed bacteria. You can put a tube of something under your towel to rest the brushes on.

      #5 Using a concealer that is too light under your eyes
      Finding the perfect concealer shade can take some of us years. It might be natural to want a lighter shade under your eyes, but if you have very dark circles, a too-light concealer is only going to accentuate those dark circles and look unnatural in pictures. You should apply some colour-correcting concealer to the area or find a concealer that matches your skin tone better. Trust us, it’ll make a world of a difference.

      #6 Pumping your mascara to get more product
      Be gentle with pushing the mascara wand back into the tube. The more you “pump” it, the more air gets into the tube, and the faster the product dries out. Your mascaras have a short enough shelf life as it is.

      #7 Forgetting to blend foundation towards your neck
      Unless your foundation is a sheer to light coverage one, chances are it’s going to make your face a different shade from your neck, especially if you’re going for a more heavy-duty full coverage look. It’s easy to forget to do, but the mistake will leave your face looking completely unnatural, almost like a mask. Make sure your face matches your neck.

      #8 Not setting your concealer
      We live in a hot and humid environment which easily melts makeup off your face. Concealer is probably the most unfortunate victim of this, quickly settling into creases and fine lines within minutes of application. Even the best concealer in the world that promises it will never crease will find a way to do so in this heat. The easiest way to counter this is setting it with translucent powder. No more sliding or melting and settling into your creases!

      #9 Not moisturising your face before you use a primer or foundation
      Your face needs hydration before your makeup goes on. Even if you have oily skin, you should be moisturising your face. Depriving your skin of proper moisture will only cause your skin to produce more oil in response. If your skin is oily, look for a moisturiser that is oil-free or one that is made specifically for oily skin. Soft and hydrated skin makes your foundation go on a lot smoother too.
