Hop on the makeup bandwagon and get your beauty stash ready this Raya with some easy tips and trends to follow. Key is for a flawless, long-lasting makeup that stays fresh through all the house visits in this hot and humid weather. Keeping your look natural is always a good idea but allow yourself some space to elevate simplicity with new shades and textures. Highlight cheekbones with a more vivid neutral tone for a stronger look, or give your lips a sweet pinkish tone to create a demure look, perfect for any occasion.
If you’re a big fan of natural makeup, take it up a notch with new shades for extra depth and elevation. It’s time to enhance the cheekbones and cheek area with the new Extra Dimension X4: Surrounded by The Stars / Magnificent Moon by MAC Cosmetics. The all-new face palette features four shining, best-selling and never-before-seen shades for extra dimension blush and skin finish.
NARS offers a great selection of foundation with shades that suit your skin colour. The innovative blend of makeup and skincare in the new Light Reflecting Foundation instantly blurs imperfection, conceals blemishes, dark spots, and redness, as well as smoothens the look of textured skin — leaving skin flawlessly natural and illuminating. This is the perfect go-to for a quick touch before heading out this Raya.
Have fun and be creative with eye makeup. Whether it is just a line or two, or even a full eye look, colourful eyes are all the rage right now. Let your creativity pop with Shiseido’s Microliner Ink, a micro-fine eyeliner that glides across the lids with the utmost precision to deliver a weightless, smudge-proof inky line that lasts up to 24 hours. It comes with various colours to match with your Raya look.
We know the weather here can be harsh and not everyone can carry the dewy look in the warmest and most humid situation. With Armani Beauty’s Neo Nude Melting Color Balm, achieve a natural matte finish on your cheeks and eyes thanks to its bendable and smooth finish. This multi-purpose colour balm, available in an array of warm neutral tones, makes it easy to have a quick touch-up in between the many festivities this Eid.
