Breathable and sweat-proof for 24-hour wear, Lancôme's high-coverage Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation allows every woman to say #makeupismypower. Singapore's top celebrity makeup artists share how

Describe the two looks and explain why women should try them.
“You don’t need much skill or products to recreate Classic Parisian. It’s about that soft winged eyeliner that brings out the eyes, and the base is so light, it suits a lot of women. Midnight Rose is bold, sexy yet sophisticated. When you wear makeup like that to an event, women will be envious, not jealous.”

How can one ace the smoky eye look?
“Women always think that smoky eyes must be black, but it’s not about the colour. It’s more about the technique. Start with a cream eyeshadow or cream kohl pencil to rim the eyes, then build up the eyeshadow.”

How does #makeupismypower resonate with you?
“Makeup builds confidence, and it’s such a waste if women are afraid to try and experiment with makeup. You’re missing out on so much in life.”

How has Lancôme fuelled your passion?
“It’s a French beauty brand and the French tend to be more daring… It’s also a historic brand with a lot of iconic products that both makeup artists and consumers love.”

Midnight Rose: With a high shine colour payoff that lasts six hours, Lancôme L’Absolu Lacquer ($48) is perfect for evenings.

Classic Parisian: The long-wear yet breathable Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation – available in 16 shades ($68 each) – helps recreate a light yet flawless base.

Why should women try these two looks?
“Effortless French is a natural look that everyone can look good in, and is great for day-to-day… Blanc & Rouge is more glamorous, with soft smoky eyes and a fuchsia pink lip topped with a red lip lacquer… The result is sophisticated and sensual.”

How can one help makeup last longer and look fresh?
“Less is more. Sebum forms quickly in our humidity and this will cause thick makeup to slide. Lancôme’s Teint Idole Ultra (TIU) Wear Foundation is good because a thin layer is enough for coverage. Then, just use the TIU Concealer on targeted areas and press on powder.”

Which Lancôme products can’t you live without?
“Absolue Precious Cells Nourishing & Revitalising Rose Mask for its deep hydration without oiliness; the Grandiose mascaras for the full volume they offer; and the L’Absolu range of lip colours for the colour payoff – one stroke and the colour is strong.”

How is makeup your power?
“Makeup really empowers a person… How one looks can really give that person a lot of confidence.”

How has Lancôme fuelled your passion?
“It’s been a household name in the magazines that I’ve been reading since I was kid, and Isabella Rossellini (the brand’s face) is someone I’ve long been drawn to for her atypical beauty. Lancôme’s thus always been a major beauty brand to me.”

Blanc & Rouge: In 42 shades of reds and pinks ($48 each) in cream, matte or sheer, Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge offers intense colour and hydration.

Effortless French: Highly pigmented and blendable, Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Concealer ($56) reduces the appearance of imperfections for this naturally flawless look.
