How to Get That Natural Makeup Look like June Baby Jeanette Aw
Local media darling Jeanette Aw has always walked the natural-and-never-OTT route in her makeup looks, regardless whether she’s enjoying a holiday in Athens (which, from the looks of her Instagram feed, was her last stop) or gracing an event as the guest-of-honour or brand muse. Maybe because of how comfortable she feels in her skin – Jeanette has shared publicly that she doesn’t use foundation in her day-to-day life, and even when she’s filming at times – we really can’t tell that she’s turning 40 this year. Really. So while we take the chance to do a Happy Birthday shoutout to her, we’ve gathered some tips on how to get her woman-next-door look, plus the products to help you along.
They help frame your face and make you look more youthful. But don’t go overboard by filling or drawing them in too thick. We like the Laneige Eyebrow Cushion-Cara, which has a water- and sweat-resistant formula that lasts in Singapore’s humid climate. The two colour tones also help you create more natural-looking 3-D brows.
If you’ve noticed, Jeanette’s not a big fan of bold lipsticks. In almost all of her lifestyle-type Instagram posts, she’s either wearing slightly pink stained lips or doesn’t seem to be wearing any lipstick at all – but her lips never look dry or flaky. So keep a lip balm handy and always remember to glide some on. The best thing about lip balms is that you don’t even need to look in a mirror to put it on. The Drunk Elephant Lippe Balm has a blend of avocado, mongongo (a less known nut), cranberry and marula oils to nourish lips without feeling sticky or heavy. It also has peptides, green tea leaf, vitamin C and sea fern algae which are antioxidant-rich to combat free radicals to give you a plumper, more youthful-looking pout.
