Turns out, the American pop princess and one of our leading local bloggers share much of the same taste beauty-wise.
When we heard M.A.C was launching a second Viva Glam by Ariana Grande collection, we were excited. After all, we so loved the M.A.C Viva Glam Ariana lipstick in Deep Dark Plum – a creamy, matte burgundy – that we bought two tubes at once just to “stock up”. As with all Viva Glam lipsticks, all proceeds from the new collection will go towards HIV/Aids research. We sent Andrea Chong, blogger and founder of digital advertising firm DC Creative, to Tokyo, Japan, for a beauty face-off with pop queen Ariana.
FAVOURITE VIVA GLAM ITEMS
Ariana: Viva Glam Ariana in Deep Dark Plum (from the first collection) and the new Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipglass in Neutral Nude Pink.
Andrea: Viva Glam Ariana in Deep Dark Plum and Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipstick in Deep Cool Pink – both matte hues complement Asian skin tones so well!
TRADEMARK BEAUTY LOOK
Ariana: Cat eyes and a really high ponytail.
Andrea: I’m never seen without cat eyes!
WORST BEAUTY HABIT
Ariana: Sleeping with my eye makeup on because I’m too tired to take it off .
Andrea: Not applying moisturiser before I go to bed.
TRAVEL MAKEUP ESSENTIALS
Ariana: Lots of good moisturisers and coconut oil. My skin gets so dry when I’m on the road and I’m kind of addicted to coffee and tea, which makes me even more dehydrated.
Andrea: A body lotion and facial mists to hydrate and freshen up the skin. Plus, travel-size bottles of micellar water to remove my makeup – the water doubles as toner.
M.A.C Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipglass in Neutral Nude Pink, $32.
M.A.C Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipstick in Deep Cool Pink, $33.
