The key to achieving flawless makeup starts way before your primer. Just think about it, if your skin is dehydrated, then you’ll end up with a cakey foundation finish. So this is where commitment comes in cos if you want beautiful skin, you’ve got to work for it.

 

FOR HYDRATION

BELIF Numero 10 Essence, RM140

Just like the name suggests, this essence is special cos not only does it contains the extracts of the herb Rose of Jericho, it’s also designed to be used within 10 seconds after you cleanse your face while skin is still damp! Perfect for days when you’re tired and a lengthy skin care routine isn’t something you have the energy for, this essence is just the exact boost your skin needs to feel moisturised.

 

FOR FIRMING

SHIZENS Time Resistance Essence, RM618

Think of your essence as a liquid soldier that helps to defeat the fine lines and wrinkles that appear on your face. This particular anti-ageing essence is formulated to enhance skin’s cellular renewal process and to form a barrier against moisture loss by restoring ceramides level in the skin. Still not sure if you should use one? Well, just think about how confident you’ll be feeling once your skin is back to being firm as it once was!

 

FOR BRIGHTENING

KOSE SEKKISEI LOTION, RM180.20

A radiant glow and an even skintone is something we all long for despite living in a country where the sun’s heat is strong enough to hurt our skin. All the more reason for us to up our skincare game with this lotion that promises to prevent dullness, banish roughness and alleviate redness. Use it every time after you wash your face.

 

FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

LA MER THE MOISTURISING MATTE LOTION, RM1, 060

Anyone who has sensitive skin knows the difficulty of finding a good skin care brand they can stick to, which is why we think La Mer’s latest innovation is going to be a game changer for many. The brand’s legendary Miracle Broth (to help soothe irritation) coupled with Lime Tea Concentrate (to protect skin against pollution) is a recipe for hydration that’ll leave your skin with a fresh and healthy matte finish.

It’s been a year since portable cushion compacts emerged as the biggest beauty trend of 2016 and we still can’t get over it!  Face & Co, a brand new cosmetic line in Malaysia, just launched their first product: a compact cushion foundation with SPF 35. Its texture, though light, gives full coverage. Plus, not only is it suitable for all skin types, it is also wudhu-friendly!
