GLOW­ING SKIN

Too ex­hausted from the many Sin­ga­pore Fash­ionWeek ac­tiv­i­ties to keep to a con­sis­tent beauty rou­tine? Give your skin a dose of hy­drat­ing and bright­en­ing good­ness with a bot­tle of SK-II Fa­cial Treat­ment Essence.

The mul­ti­pur­pose, wa­ter-like anti-age­ing serum can be used in many ways to perk up a dry and dull com­plex­ion. Use it af­ter toner in your daily rit­ual, or as a quick fix for puffy eyes and lack­lus­tre skin.

The night be­fore a big event, soak sev­eral cot­ton pads with the essence, seal them in a zi­plock bag, and pop it in the fridge. The next morn­ing, place the cot­ton pads over your eyes or face for five min­utes to re­duce puffi­ness and red­ness, as well as hy­drate and soothe in­stantly.

Keep skin look­ing ra­di­ant, flaw­less and not cakey with Nars Aqua Glow Cush­ion Foun­da­tion SPF23/PA++ (avail­able in six shades). This hy­drat­ing cush­ion com­pact feels weight­less and gives a medium, build­able cov­er­age. It also boasts Triple-Force Anti-Pol­lu­tion Com­plex that is said to keep out air pol­lu­tants, which can ir­ri­tate skin and leave you with a weak­ened skin bar­rier (read: red and itchy skin). SK-II Fa­cial Treat­ment Essence, $204 for 160ml and $259 for 230ml. Nars Aqua Glow Cush­ion Foun­da­tion SPF23/PA++, $68.

POWER LIPS

When run­ning from show to show, keep your makeup on point with a gor­geous state­ment pout. To keep your lips look­ing as pris­tine and stylish as pos­si­ble with min­i­mal touch-ups, make Nars Pow­er­matte Lip Pig­ment your lip com­pan­ion.The long-wear­ing liq­uid lip­stick comes in 20 shades and leaves an in­cred­i­bly rich, sat­u­rated hue that doesn’t budge. It’s easy to use and dries quickly, leav­ing a weight­less, even, matte stain. Nars Pow­er­matte Lip Pig­ment, $40.

MAKE A HAIR STATE­MENT

Your hair can make or break your look. Af­ter towel-dry­ing, mist a heat-pro­tect­ing spray all over be­fore blow-dry­ing and styling hair. Whether you have a pixie cut or a long bob, the eas­i­est way to set your look is to use a hold­ing hair­spray like L’Oreal Pro­fes­sion­nel Tecni.Art Air Fix Ex­tra-strong Fix­ing Spray. Hair­sprays have lighter tex­tures com­pared to hairstyling gels, so they’re also eas­ier to sham­poo off at the end of the night.

If you pre­fer a more tex­tured look, try L’Oreal Pro­fes­sion­nel French Girl Hair By Tecni.Art Messy Cliche Tex­ture Def­i­ni­tion Spray. If you are go­ing with a wavy hair­style, you can opt for L’Oreal Pro­fes­sion­nel Hol­ly­wood Waves By Techni.Art Siren Waves Defining Elasto-cream to de­fine and smoothen your curls. Clock­wise from left: L’Oreal Pro­fes­sion­nel Tecni.Art Air Fix Ex­trastrong Fix­ing Spray, $28, Hol­ly­wood Waves By Techni.Art Siren Waves, $32, and French Girl Hair By Tecni.Art Messy Cliche Tex­ture Def­i­ni­tion Spray, $28.

SMELL DI­VINE

Com­plete your look with a fra­grance from Oo La Lab – you can ei­ther cre­ate your own unique cus­tom-blend fra­grance, or buy an ex­ist­ing scent off its shelves. Don’t over­whelm your fel­low guests with some­thing too over­pow­er­ing though. We rec­om­mend the Flo­ral Green Alde­hyde Eau De Par­fum, a fresh clean scent with notes of flow­ers, moss and wood. If you pre­fer a wood­ier scent, try the Chypre Woody Eau De Par­fum.This fruity-woody fra­grance opens with fruity notes and dries down to a warm, woody-musky hint on your skin. Oo La Lab Flo­ral Green Alde­hyde Eau De Par­fum, $88, and Chypre Woody Eau De Par­fum, $88.
