How can I make my lipstick last longer? Bernadine James, 22
Exfoliate your lips first. Then apply a coat of lipstick and blot gently with a tissue before reapplying another coat of lipstick.

What should I look out for in a powder compact? Germaine Lim, 24
Find one that offers buildable coverage and has moisturising benefits. The right powder should disappear seamlessly into your skin giving you a flawless yet natural finish.

Can I use a blusher as an eyeshadow instead? Wong Xiao Li, 21
Definitely! Doubling your blusher as an eyeshadow greatly streamlines your makeup routine for days when you are in a rush. Be sure to find one with a long-lasting formula to ensure your eyeshadow stays put.

Do I need a separate moisturiser for day and night? Ong Sock Chin, 25
It’s better to use separate products as day creams support and protect your skin from environmental aggressors while night creams repair the skin while you sleep. Besides having different purposes, the textures are also different – day creams are more lightweight.

Can I combine a whitening product with my regular basic skincare? Chloe Tan, 23
Yes. It’s perfectly OK to mix and match products depending on your needs. If dark spots and scarring are your main concern, you can add whitening products to your basic skincare regime to achieve the best results for your skin.
