4 Things For A Haute Look | Clozette

On special events, a casual-dressy look won't just cut it. You have to step your game up to look edgier than the rest. This is where haute looks come in handy. In French, "Haute" means "high" and is commonly associated with the word "Couture" which means "fashion". Thus, if you plan to go haute couture, you must be ready to step in the world of High Fashion. 

Here are 4 useful tips on how to make your look Haute-ready! 


Eye-Catching Add-ons

(Get The Items Here: False Eyelashes, Sunglasses, Eyeliner)

Bringing the haute couture vibe on the red carpet means you need to work your look from head-to-toe. You can bring vintage reflective sunglasses such as this one from Chicnova or bat Mini Black Crystal False Eyelashes from Shu Uemura. If those aren't enough, you can always bring your cat-liner game up with Dolce and Gabanna's Beauty Intense Liquid Eyeliner in Peacock 5. 

Lustrous Lips

Your lips must also be in their tip-top shape. Sport the perfect pout with these lippes from LORAC Alter Ego lipstick in the shade Vixen, and Burberry Beauty Burberry Kisses lipstick in the shade Bright Plum. Forget Red lips for a moment and go for a rarely-used shade of purple for a beauty risk worth the attention. 

Fabulous Claws

(Get The Items Here: Nail Polish, Nail Set)

Of course, you mustn't forget your nails because you certainly can't go to a haute event with naked and undone paws. Try Deborah Lippmann's Glitter Nail Color called Lady Sings The Blues for classic, jazz-inspired claws. You can also go all out with Elegant Touch's Lily Allen Littlest Things nail set. Its pointed tips and glitter finish channel a couture vibe unlike regularly-shaped nails. 

Dress-To-Kill Shoes

Assuming that you've already figured-out your killer look, finish it off with these shoes. Remember, shoes can make or break your look, so best if you wear a pair that really speaks to you haute couture roots. Fergie's Maiden Quatro Leopard can make you feel like you're in the wild--in a strikingly stylish ensemble. This heeled sandals from Privileged called Montana Black makes you look fierce and edgy in an instant.



When  someone asks you about Japan, one of the many things that you will mention is Anime. Japanese Anime has been so globally appreciated by different kinds of people--including fashionistas and beauty junkies alike. Japanese Anime characters are basically flawless, and who else but L'Oreal comes up with a clever idea to get us closer to our Anime aspirations. With L'Oreal's False Lash Miss Manga Mascara, anyone can get Kawaii-wide eyes with a flick of a wand!

False Lash Miss Manga amplifies top lashes and volumizes bottom lashes for that ultimate wide-eyed manga look. 10X volume and 2X curl on short and straight Asian lashes! The iconic arched brush fits Asians' top and bottom lashes perfectly and its extra thin tip effectively coats each lash from the inner to outer corners, curved arch curls from the very root, while bold short fibers allow for instantaneous volume building.  

The False Lash Miss Manga has an Asian-specific ultra black and ultra silky smooth formula that does not flake or weigh down Asian lashes. Curled lashes are held in place for the whole day and the formula promises to be long-lasting, waterproof, sebum-proof and sweat- proof. 

The L’Oreal Paris False Lash Miss Manga retails for SGD 22.90 and are now available in Singapore's major drugstores, SASA, selected departmental stores and super/hypermarkets.  For the month of May you can get Miss Manga at an introductory price of SGD19.90!

Most women show-off their lovely tanned skin during Summer. However, not everyone can go to the beach and soak up under to get a natural tan. Thankfully, we have makeup. Makeup can do so much to our face--make it appear slimmer, cover up blemishes, and even make it look tanner and glowing! 

Here are 5 makeup products for you to sport a sun-kissed makeup look today!

After prepping your skin with your chosen foundation, even out your complexion using a Bronzing Makeup base. Apply it around the forehead and across the bridge of the nose for a natural tan effect.

Coral Blusher

Don't forget to apply blush! A sun-kissed look usually has a healthy flush in peach-orange or coral shades in the apple of your cheeks. Achieve that with your favourite orange-based blush!

The glow comes in when you apply your highlighter on top of your blush. You'll see its effect whenever you take photos--it literally gives you  glowing skin in seconds.

A bronzing makeup base may be enough to give you a glowing tan but it will not give you dimension. Take the extra mile and blend away with your chosen bronzer.

A glowing, sun-kissed skin isn't complete without a few earth-tones on your eyes. Stick to either bronze, orange, tan, and white and mix in a few shades to complete your after-beach makeup look!
