Believe it or not, our favourite local songstress has recently hit the big 4-0 and she looks better than ever. To commemorate her milestone birthday, here are some tips and tricks to copy her beauty looks
It’s really hard to believe that Stefanie Sun is 40. The mandopop singer who turned 40 recently (23 July 2018) still looks very much like the fresh-faced waif who captured the region’s attention with her powerful vocals and megawatt smile.
She was thrust into the spotlight with the release of her debut album, Yan Zi, which won her a Golden Melody Award for Best New Artist. Stefanie, who is currently pregnant with her second child has sold over 30 million records in her career spanning nearly two decades. To commemorate Stefanie’s milestone birthday, here are some tips and tricks to recreate her makeup look.
Stefanie, who celebrated her birthday earlier this week looked perfectly put together even though she barely had any makeup on.
Her well-groomed eyebrows instantly add definition and draws attention to her eyes. For your eyebrows to look great all the time, make it a point to pluck away stray hairs and groom your brows regularly.
This picture of Stefanie is stunning for so many reasons, from her beautiful smile to her glowing complexion. But the feature that draws us in the most? That glossy red on her lips! Gorge. In this photo, the singer is sporting a warm-toned red lippy.
While it’s not a hard-and-fast rule, warm-toned lipsticks like this one seen on Stefanie are as much orange as red and will be best suited for women with warm undertones in their skin, particularly those with olive and yellow-hued skin. If your skin has cooler undertones, go for a red lipstick with a purple or blue base. When in doubt, apply a true red lipstick that suits all skin tones.
Stefanie usually sports a pared-back look that seeks to enhance rather than distort on her off-duty days. In this picture, the songstress stepped out of her comfort zone and went for a bold blue liner.
Perfect for the fall season, deep-blue liner can help the whites of your eyes look brighter and is an edgy-yet-wearable twist on the basic black.
For something more mysterious and sultry, go with a midnight or navy blue. If you want something that is more youthful, try a trendy blue or cobalt colour. Make sure to focus the liner on the upper lash line to perk up tired eyes and fake fuller lashes. Next, define your eyes with a coat or two of black mascara.
The focal point of Stefanie’s makeup in this throwback picture from 2001 was her lit-from-within-luminescence.
To achieve that ethereal glow, invest more time and effort in a proper skincare regime and use products that suit your skin type. For supple and bouncy skin, slather on a sleeping mask before you hit the hay.
Stefanie Sun just absolutely nailed the feline flick. Her natural brows and peachy lips are the perfect canvas for the eyeliner to stand out. Unfortunately, to achieve the precision of Stefanie’s eye makeup, you can’t wing it (pun intended). It takes a little bit more work and practice.
If you’re struggling to get that crisp line, apply a piece of tape right below where you would draw your wing. Use the tape as a guide and draw on the wing. Remove the tape for a mess-free, perfectly sharp winged eyeliner look.
Who says glitter is just for the nighttime? A smattering of glitter on the lower lash line as seen on the Mandopop diva creates a playful, kaleidoscope effect that isn’t too much for the daytime – just make sure to keep the colour of your clothes neutral.
In this picture, Stefanie Sun rocked a textured bob with wispy bangs that drew attention her eyes. To get that tousled #iwokeuplikethis bed hair, you want to spritz some hair spray on your hair while your hair is air-drying. By doing so, you are creating volume in your hair and you’ll get that sexy lived-in look.
This is a classic Stefanie Sun beauty look. While her eye makeup is kept to a minimum, her lashes are always long and full, so much so that they border on falsies. To get long, lush lashes in the blink of an eye, wiggle the wand gently at the base of your lashes and then push outwards. If you don’t get any mascara on your roots, your lashes might look visually shorter than they actually are.
Instead of going for the heavily contoured makeup look, Stefanie tends to highlight her cheeks by applying pink blusher on the apples of her cheeks for that youthful and approachable look.
Recreate her dewy look by swapping your powder blusher for a lightweight cream one that melts into your skin. For a natural finish, tap the cream blusher on the apples of your cheeks with your ringer finger.
