Mists for long-lasting makeup
Singapore’s heat and humidity can be makeup’s biggest enemy, after all, who wants smudgy, worn off makeup? And if you have oily skin, you’ll be lucky if your foundation or blusher hasn’t melted off by noon. A simple solution: end of your makeup routine with a makeup setting spray. Just a few spritzs of these refreshing mists will keep you looking fresh throughout the day.
