This was Sunday’s makeup! As a Singaporean you’d think I have many many many posts that cover this topic, but shockingly I don’t.
Generally I like using my Laneige BB Cushion as it has high SPF and is mildly water resistant so it stays put on my face despite sweat. (It contains silicon though, so beware if you have easily clogged pores.) Cream blushes and cheek tints are good too as they cling to your skin and last longer than powder blushes and don’t cake up when you sweat (Tip: Cream products can be massaged back into the skin when you sweat, but powder products can’t.) So skip the powder blush and go for something like Benefit’s Benetint (yes I am a convert) or Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rogues.
I cannot be bothered to put on eyeshadow for today (generally though you can trust MAC Paint Pots and Maybelline’s 24 Hour Eye Tattoos to stay on) but I still want colour on my face. Solution: coloured eyeliner. Instead of using a black liner, use jewel tones like deep blues, greens and purples, which are perfect for a subtle hint of colour. I used a purple for today and did a bit of a wing.
