We get it - it's not the easiest task to keep makeup from sliding off your face in the crazy humid Singapore weather. Instead of checking the mirror every 5 minutes to see if your makeup's still there or touching up every hour or so, we've found six must-haves that will give you a flawless complexion that stays put until you decide to remove it.

1) Benefit Boi-ing Hydrating Concealer ($35)

Refresh your dark circles before meetings or dinners with a simple three-step method: twist the tube, swipe the creamy concealer under your eyes and pat it in. The brightening concealer delivers a hydrating burst of vitamin E and apple seed extract to keep your delicate skin moisturised.

2) Belif Moisture Bomb Cushion Matt Bullet ($49)

Rejoice - everyone’s favourite skincare brand now has a cushion foundation! Dab the silky formula on your skin to maintain your makeup for an impressive 26 hours. With no mineral oil, you don’t have to fret about reaching for your oil wipes every few hours.

3) It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder SPF 50+ ($60)

This is a lightweight powder suited for Singapore’s humidity. Simply fluff the finely milled powder on your face for a blurring effect that gives your skin the smoothest complexion. It contains collagen that pampers your skin and also comes in a wide range of shades - from fair to deep.

4) NudeStix Eyebrow Stylus ($37)

Forget about stuffing your purse with all your eyebrow products to perfect your arch before your girls' night out. This sleek pen comes with a tapered pencil to angle your brows to perfection while the other end lets you finish off with a gel to hold your hairs in place.
