You no longer need both a two-way foundation compact and a pressed-powder compact in your makeup pouch.

You no longer need both a two-way foundation compact and a pressed-powder compact in your makeup pouch. These lightweight formulations let you build your desired coverage and double as pressed powders on the go.

This was created with three Cs in mind: correct, control and comfort. It aims to conceal blemishes, control shine and provide a lightweight finish so skin feels comfortable throughout the day. In addition, “rosy glow” filter pigments add a touch of natural radiance to your complexion. The non- cakey finish is a big plus!

The YSL Beauty Encre de Peau line has a new addition to its family: Le Compact Encre de Peau, a compact foundation that lets you enjoy a buildable, long-lasting base that feels weightless on your skin all day, with a creamy texture that transforms to a powdery finish.

Comfort gloss

Imagine a lip gloss that offers rich colour payoff and high shine, but doesn’t weigh your lips down with stickiness. That’s exactly what the Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss collection offers. Perfect for dry lips, this newly formulated range of 24 shades goes on evenly, and is so moisturising that you can even do without lip balm. The uniquely shaped applicator tip hugs the lips to minimise mess and ensure easy application.

The smile trial 
To avoid nasty surprises after beautifying your teeth, check out the Digital Smile service by Orchard Scotts Dental as part of its The Smile Makeover treatment. The service functions like a try-before-you-buy option. At the first consultation, a mould of your teeth is taken, followed by video and dental photography to design a customised look for your teeth. A physical prototype is created so you can try it on over your teeth in their current state, during the second consultation. Prices range from $600 onwards for simple whitening and bonding to $20,000 onwards for veneers.
