When I have no time “I cleanse, ap­ply Clin­ique Clar­i­fy­ing

Lo­tion, and a mois­turiser with sun­screen. I skip foun­da­tion, fill in my brows, and ap­ply blusher, lip

gloss and eye­liner.” Counter chapped lips “To get rid of peel­ing skin, I brush my lips with a tooth­brush and tooth­paste on al­ter­nate days. I just love the re­fresh­ing minty af­ter­taste – I al­ways feel like kiss­ing some­one af­ter that!”

Prac­tice makes per­fect “The more of­ten you use makeup, the bet­ter you

get at it. Just choose spe­cific items to use and you’ll be done in

five min­utes.” Ab­so­lute must-have “I’m not the most dili­gent – on tired nights and lazy week­ends, I skip serum and mois­turiser. How­ever, I al­ways use Clin­ique Clar­i­fy­ing Lo­tion 3 (200ml/400ml, $39/$55), twice a day on my face, neck ck and decol­letage. This his helps to re­fresh my skin and even out my skin tone.”

DATE-NIGHT ES­SEN­TIALS “Eight hours of sleep, the cat-eye look us­ing Clin­ique Brush-on Cream Liner, ($34) and a spritz of per­fume!”

To im­prove skin firm­ness “I learnt that I should al­ways mas­sage up­wards when cleansing and ap­ply­ing skin­care – I have been do­ing this for four years.” My big­gest woes are… “Dark cir­cles, so I use Clin­ique Line Smooth­ing Con­cealer ($30). I like how it hides my un­der­eye cir­cles and smooths over fine lines with­out mak­ing my skin look cakey or the lines more pro­nounced.”

“I was seven when I no­ticed how my mother treated her beauty prod­ucts like trea­sure – she would store her skin­care items in the fridge.” – Nance Tan
