All you need to look fabulous while making your rounds at the most scintillating soirees. By Joyce Cheo.
Nothing completes an outfit like an intense crimson lip. Chanel’s Rouge Allure in 247 Ultraberry is a creamy, purple-red shade that flatters most skin tones. If you prefer long-lasting matte finishes, try Dior’s Diorific Mat Lipstick in 950 Splendor or Diorific Matte Fluid in 004 Luxury. Lancôme’s L’Absolu Rouge in Matte 198 is also enriched with lip-conditioning ingredients for comfortable wear. Don’t forget your cheeks: Bobbi Brown’s Glow to Go Blush & Illuminate packs a flattering pink blush and a nifty highlighting fluid so you can touch up on the go.

A thin layer of Cosme Decorte’s AQMW Elegant Glow Liquid Foundation all over the face and a dab of Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Nude Beach on your lids will get you glowing in a flash. Intensify your gaze with Dior’s 5 Couleurs Splendor in 066 Smoky Sequins and keep your lips neutral with M.A.C’s Lipstick in Bit of Bubbly, followed by a dab of its Lipglass in It’s Just Like Honey. Add a vibrant punch of colour—and keep lips hydrated—with Shu Uemura’s Tint In Balm in 04 Sugar Coral. Paint your tips in a chrome shade like Chanel’s Le Vernis in 540 Liquid Mirror to stand out from the crowd and keep Bobbi Brown’s Lip Balm SPF 15 in your purse at all times since it doubles as a cuticle balm. Finally, a spritz of Loewe 001 Woman EDP leaves a lingering trail of ultra-sexy sandalwood, cedarwood and musk.

For a luminous base, count on YSL Beauty’s Touche Eclat Le Teint, before adding a glistening touch with Lancôme’s Petit Trésor eyeshadow in 16 Blanc Scintillant; or sweep the Diorific Splendor 001 all over your face for a luminous glow. Tom Ford Beauty’s Limited Edition Soleil Eye and Cheek Palette provides a sheer wash of colour for a healthy flush; set it off with Burberry’s Nail Polish in Gold Shimmer 451 and Dior’s Dior Vernis in 001 Nova to give nails the prettiest sparkle. Don’t forget to spritz on Prada’s iris- and tuberoselaced La Femme Prada to make heads turn.
