A round-up of our fave beauty ﬁnds of the moment.
"Given the hot and humid climate we live in, it’s essential to set your makeup with a powder. However, I hate the flat, matte finish that some powders have. Not this one. It allows me to keep my makeup in place without compromising on a dewy complexion. Love!"
- Smita DeSouza, Beauty Editor
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow, $70
"I'm picky when it comes to sunscreens, but I think I just found my new favourite. This is lightly tinted and gives me a poreless finish, making it look like I have BB cream on when I'm actually makeup-free. On days when I put on makeup, this acts as a primer to make my makeup last longer while keeping my face shine-free."
- Hidayah Idris, Associate Digital Editor
Supergoop! 100% Mineral Matte Screen Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40, $56
"I'm sold on anything millennial pink, so it was love at first sight. The scent is musky, with light floral notes—very feminine. I can see myself wearing this on a lot of date nights."
- Sophie Hong, Associate Editor
Joy by Dior Eau de Parfum Spray, $115 for 30ml
"This lip bar leaves a natural gradient effect, which I love. It also keeps my lips hydrated and I like the sleek design."
- Sim Lee Ya, 25
LANEIGE Two Tone Lip Bar in Fruit Candy Bar, $32
"This is my favourite blush as it looks natural and lasts all day. Best of all, it can be easily applied using just my fingertips."
- Ng Lok Yan, 23
Benefit Cosmetics Posietint Cheek & Lip Stain, $21
This mousse-textured blush is very soft and creamy, and blends easily to a powder finish that lasts all day. It's very pigmented, so all you need is a couple of dots tapped on. Even though it has a hint of shimmer, it looks very natural."
- Leong Li Yuan, Senior Designer
Shiseido Minimalist Whipped Powder Blush in Sonoya, $48
"I’ve always had a hard time when it comes to applying eyeliner but this liquid liner works wonders! The brush tip makes it easy to apply, helping me achieve the exact look I want. Plus, I love the matte finish!"
- Nurul Hadirah, 21
NYX Professional Makeup Matte Liquid Liner, $16
"This foundation ticks all the right boxes for me—it sets to a dewy finish, which is great for my dehydrated skin, and blends easily. Plus, it doesn’t oxidise, so I don't need to touch-up throughout the day. "
- Adora Wong, Senior Features Writer
Shu Uemura Lightbulb Fluid Foundation, $72
"I have always believed that anything we put onto our lips must be effective, yet free of toxins. PowerLips Fluid is not only safe and available in a whole range of vibrant colours, it’s also hydrating and feels weightless. Best of all, it's transfer-proof!"
- Angie Wang Jinghui, 27
