Yanny Li, prod­uct man­ager of Lan­come, shares her makeup tips.

“The first step to a great makeup fin­ish is a good skin­care rou­tine, so don’t skip your lo­tions, serums and mois­turis­ers!”

The “I’m-run­ninglate” makeup look “I’d use Lan­come Maqui Blanc Mir­a­cle Com­pact Foun­da­tion, $65 (rell), $27 (case) – its sweat-re­sis­tant for­mula helps me look fresh in our hot weather. Then add mas­cara and lip­stick – done in three min­utes!”

Al­ways ap­ply sun­screen over your foun­da­tion. “The min­i­mum rec­om­mended amount of sun pro­tec­tion to use on your face is about the size of a pearl. Some women use less and some­times only on cer­tain parts of their face

like the T-zone and cheeks – but this leaves other parts of the face,

as well as ar­eas such as the neck, ex­posed to

UV rays.”

Most ac­cu­rate way to pick a foun­da­tion shade. “Don’t test foun­da­tion on the back of your hand – in­stead, swipe three shades against your chin or jaw­line, and don’t over-blend it. Pick the one that looks flaw­less on your skin.”

A beauty musthave! “Lan­come Ad­vanced Genique Youth Ac­ti­vat­ing Con­cen­trate, $130 for 30ml, is not only a pre-serum – you can also use it to re­fresh your look by pat­ting it over your makeup. Or mix it with liq­uid foun­da­tion to lighten the tex­ture and add a nat­u­ral­look­ing touch of ra­di­ance.”

How to pre­vent mas­cara from trans­fer­ring to the up­per eye­lids dur­ing ap­pli­ca­tion “Place a small card be­tween the mas­cara wand and your up­per eye­lid.”
