Every time I’m given a listicle to write, I ponder on the question:
“Am I really the right person for this assignment?”
Well, I guess I am now! Are you ready to be blown away by my top-notch recommendations? Well, you better the hell be ready because we are going to have some fun.
Today’s topic is make-up. It’s a crucial staple! Unless you are one of the very few who have been fortunately blessed with a naturally beautiful face.
I’m kidding. Makeup knows no forms nor standards of beauty. It’s for everyone – boy, girl, dog, cat, and goldfish. I’m pretty sure you can find a shade for your discoloured knee at the Fenty Beauty section of Sephora.
Jokes aside, dry skin is one of the more prominent concerns raised by my ladies out there. I agree that it is a challenge. Itchy and flakey skin? Cakey foundation?
You’ve come to the right place because I’m actually giving out solid advice today.
Let’s Start With Your Base
It’s back to the basics. If you haven’t incorporated a moisturiser in your routine, I’m calling the police. A moisturiser that works for you is the first step to all-day hydration.
I would recommend Innisfree’s Green Tea Seed Cream. Innisfree’s green tea line is pretty solid. It has gotten me through pretty tough times.
The product retails for $34.00 and can be found on the Innisfree website on in-stores.
Do take note that because the product is specifically for individuals with dry skin, it can be rather heavy for other skin types.
Alternatively, you can go get some Cetaphil.
Prime That Face
As the saying goes, the secret of the glow lies in a good primer. That’s pretty subjective, of course. Others just have it better than some.
You’d be looking like a baby’s bum in no time.
ELF’s Hydrating Face Primer
This primer is one of the many pocket-friendly options out there in the market. The only issue with this one is – it can be rather hard to find. Fret not though because I’ve got the solution for you.
The product is available on Amazon for just $8.20.
Glossier Priming Moisturiser
This is a two-in-one product. We love dual-purpose products. According to Glossier’s website, this product is meant to instantly bring out the best in your skin.
The product is available on Glossier’s website for $29.82. I admit, it’s a pricier option. But a little primer goes a long way so it’s definitely worth the splurge.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Primer
A list is not a list without a product from Badgal Riri herself. This primer promises comfort with its silky-smooth formula that caters to those with normal to dry skin.
The primer retails at $48.00 and can be found at Sephora.
Blemishes Be Gone
You can’t possibly catfish a thousand followers into thinking you’re hot without a trustworthy cover up!
Not everybody needs the extra help, but if you do, I’ve got you covered with these foundations that you bet can get you looking from zero to hero.
Etude House Double Lasting Serum Foundation
Trust me when I say that this product stays the hell on. I’ve gone through an entire night out with this.
The foundation is formulated with moisturising ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramide. All of which are guaranteed to give you that dewy finish the entire day.
The product retails for $35.90 and is available on Etude House’s website and in-stores.
The Loreal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation
The name of the product itself is pretty self-explanatory. Glow it said and glow it will make you.
The foundation is available online on platforms like Shopee and Lazada. It retails for $24.50 on Shopee.
Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation
This one’s a cheaper option and does similar wonders as the former. You would have heard about Maybelline’s Fit Me range. It’s pretty well-talked about in the beauty community and it really does live up to its name.
This product is catered especially for those with normal or dry skin. It retails for $19.90 in drugstores around the island. Alternatively, you can find it on Maybelline Singapore’s website.
Ready? Now Set Your Face
You worked hard on that face. Now here’s to making sure it stays all day. A powder might just be too harsh. So here are your alternatives.
NYX Cosmetics Makeup Setting Spray
It’s pretty pocket-friendly! Priced at just $11.50 – it’s a definite steal. The product is available on NYX’s website.
MAC Prep + Prime + Fix
This one’s a staple. Need I say more? This product retails at $37.00 in-store in Sephora, MAC, and MAC counters in department stores islandwide.
I’ve got you covered for the basics! Now get out there and strut your stuff… And your face because you’re beautiful!
