At GRAZIA Singapore HQ, the old excites us as much as the new and in this weekly column, we ask our fellow friends, industry-goers and beauty aficionados about the last thing they loved be it trends, products, or even the image they looked at when it came to inspiring themselves.
The last beauty product I finished was Pixi Beauty’s detoxifEYE Hydrogel Under-Eye Patches ($42). Ever since I started using them, I have been using so every other day. It has been a staple in my skincare routine as it made my tired eyes look smoother, fresh and glowy.
The last viral makeup/skincare trend I tried was mob wife makeup. I have recently been obsessed with sultry looks that are inspired by classic makeup.
The last beauty product I bought was the Tarte Tartelette™ Energy Amazonian Clay Palette ($68). It was my third purchase as there was a special promo for the brand in January at Sephora and hence I purchased it to use on my clients.
The last image I looked at for beauty inspiration was one from an influencer from Dubai called Sarah Mohammed (@itsara.ae) I love her makeup looks and style.
The last beauty product I bought again was the Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer ($61)—my favourite as it’s creaseless and very long-lasting.
The last beauty indulgence I treated myself to was a DIY facial exfoliating and massaging treatment at home using a face steamer that was given to me by my husband. It helps to destress and improve my skin over time.
The last beauty product I made a holy grail was our own IBYLNER ($27.90), a 2 in 1 liquid and pencil eyeliner which I think is the best eyeliner and kohl and has been going viral among celebrities and influencers here in Singapore.
It’s hassle-free as you no longer have to carry more than 1 eye makeup product in your kit and with its creamy dark pencil formula and quick-drying intensely black precision brush, you will be able to create thin, thick, long or sexy cat eyeliners. It’s suitable for both natural and heavy glam.
The last beauty product I gifted someone was the Empowered Eyeshadow Palette ($110) by Huda Beauty which is the best one in the market right now. It’s very pigmented and the colours are universal for day and night glam. It makes for a perfect gift!
The last beauty product that truly impressed me was the new 1 Coat Wow! Extra Volumizing And Lifting Mascara ($38) by Huda Beauty unlike the older one which I’m not a fan of.
The last makeup/skincare trick I taught someone was actually a variety of tricks. The first is to use soap or Vaseline if they don’t own a brow gel as either works the same. Secondly, ifyou don’t own a colour corrector to cover up dark circles, you can use red lipstick.
If your eyeliner or mascara smudges, don’t immediately wipe it off. Leave it to dry before you remove it with a cotton bud as it’ll stop you from ruining your makeup.
Ice your face from time to time as it does everything from healing and preventing acne, calming inflammation, reducing puffiness, and increasing the absorption of other products. Hence, it’s best to rub ice on ur skin before applying makeup.
