When the Singapore Government decided to mandate mask wearing, one of the saddest part for me was that I can no longer wear lipsticks that could potentially be as dark as my soul. 🤣 Not because I couldn’t, but I thought it was pretty unhygienic to have the lipstick colour sticking onto my mask should I wear them.
It was a weird feeling honestly to go without a lipstick at work… And sometimes, my colleagues even asked if I am feeling unwell since I looked paler than usual.
However, thanks to a friend who had introduced me to a new lipstick product, I am back to wearing lipsticks at work.
2020 was supposed to be an awesome leap year but instead the world is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, where we have been living with it for close to 6 months.
For Singapore, strict laws have been put in place where everyone is expected to wear a mask once they are in public areas. If one is caught without a mask in public, you will be fined or in extreme cases; jailed.
Given that mask wearing is part of the routine now, I started to giving myself excuses not to use my cushion/foundation as they will stain the masks, which makes my mask unhygienic (the counter argument would be there there are now products that are mask friendly, which I will talk about in a separate post in the near future). What I generally focused on in terms of my make up are (1) eyebrows and (2) eyelids.
Thought I should attempt this after being inspired from influencers from sharing their favourite haul for the month, top 10 products, empties haul so I thought I should give it a try as well.
Here’s my March Look, which I will share the list of products (with photos) that I have used to produce the “look”.
Disclaimer: I am NOT a professional when it comes to applying makeup (and I don’t think I will ever become a professional lol). So there will be cases whereby I didn’t do my makeup well enough. Pardon me for my lack of skills! If you have tips that you want to share, feel free to let me know! 🙂
Laneige is a rather well known brand that can be found widely in Singapore. Few years ago, they launched a lipstick that was dual tone, which I really liked as I ended up buying a lot of the lipsticks in different shades.
In 2019, Laneige launched their layering lip bar, which consist of 6 colours in the same lipstick. The 6 layers was to help create the gradient effect using one swipe.
Founder of Fenty Beauty, Rihanna; launched a new product for her makeup brand over last Christmas and the hype continues till today.
The product that RiRi launched was the Mattemoiselle, a lipstick that encompass a matte finish but it’s also provides moisture to your lips. The product must have been well liked as a number of shades were unavailable whenever I visit the Sephora stores in Singapore.
While it’s true that Fenty Beauty is a relatively new player in the makeup industry, it is still a popular brand these days. With a total of 50 (yes 50!) shades of foundation and marketing themselves as a brand any woman out there could use, regardless of their skin color, Fenty Beauty have definitely gotten my attention.
