Best beauty instagrams of the week: How to recreate Zoe Tay’s wedding anniversary makeup
Time and time again Ah Jie has given us proof that a hint of mascara, blush and coral lipstick works wonders. By amping up the drama on those same elements — Zoe’s daily makeup look is just a tad more dressy, perfect for the occasion (ICYDK Zoe was all dressed up for her 26th wedding anniversary dinner at One Farrer Hotel with her hubby Phillip Chionh).
Lancome Grandiôse Waterproof Wide-Angle Fan Effect Waterproof Mascara ($50)
For the “Heartland Hero” star, no makeup look is complete without a swipe (or two) of mascara. To get the most out of your mascara, gently wiggle the wand at the base of your lashes before rolling your brush as you get towards the tips. Doing so would help the bristles to catch all the lashes for full, fluttery lashes. Consider using a mascara with a buildable formula like the Lancome Grandiôse Waterproof Wide-Angle Fan Effect so you can apply multiple layers without clumps.
Adding a touch of glittery, nude or white eyeliner on the waterline can instantly brighten tired eyes by concealing any redness on your waterline. This is the perfect trick when you are running on empty.
As we move into the cooler months, dark smokey eyes are as much of a staple as a LBD or scarlet lip. For a change of pace, follow local actress Yvonne Lim’s lead and switch out your moody grey eyeshadow for a softer, warm caramel shade.
Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Longwear Eyeliner and Kohl Pen in 88 Noir Intense ($39)
Former actress and wellness guru Jacelyn Tay might not look like she has a lot of makeup on, but the tight line creates the illusion of fuller lashes and the subtle feline flick adds a doll-like factor to her look.
To fake that dewy, lit-from-within glow, layer a hydrating skin-perfecting primer like SOS Primer from Clarins underneath your makeup. It’s infused with moisturising organic sea lily extract and a high lumitech complex that imparts a subtle sheen.
Borrow a leaf out of Beck’s book and incorporate that less-is-more French girl charm in your beauty routine. Skip your lip liner and tap some red liquid lipstick on your lips for that blurred edge and modern finish. Keep the rest of your makeup clean and minimal.
