Back-To-School #FOTD Beauty Tips | Clozette

Do you ever wonder what your favourite fashion bloggers have to say about beauty? Well, we found out through our Featured Fashionista for this month, Vanessa, that they don't go over the top when it comes to their MOTDs. We also took home a few back-to-school beauty tips from the fashion blogger herself.


Let's get to know more about what she has to say on makeup, hair, and her favourite celebrities !


--------------------------


What is your favourite hair and makeup look for the season?




For this season I think a high pony tail or a cute wavy lob will work really well to complement our tropical weather. Makeup wise, I think bold lippies like corals will be nice for the season.

Do you have any back-to-school beauty tips to share?

 

For school you definitely don’t want to look over the top. I suggest doing a simple cat eyeliner, pink-flushed cheeks for that healthy summer glow, and a light pink or red colour. For me I prefer a red lippie so I usually dab on my favourite red lipstick then blend it out so its not too over powering when I go for classes.





What are your top 3 beauty products? 

 

I definitely cannot live without the following:

 

1. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in shade Honey, I just recently purchased it after a recommendation from a close friend and it’s my go-to concealer. It is slightly salmon coloured which helps to conceal the greenish tint from my dark eye circles. 


 


2. MAC Heirloom Collection lipstick in shade Sparks of Romance. This is my ultimate favourite red lippie out of all the red lipsticks that I have. It’s a limited edition shade, but I have already repurchased it twice from on-line. It wears really well on the lips because it’s a matte finish yet pretty moisturising. Plus the formula has glitter in it, so it’s like a party on my lips haha.

 

3. Sleek Blush by 3 in shade Californ.I.A. I have been using Sleek blushes since I started doing my own makeup and I really swear by them for their colour payoff. This particular one is my favourite because they are cream blushes so I don’t really need to layer a lot of product on my skin for that healthy cheeky glow.  



Who are the celebrities you look up to?

 

I am inspired by Taylor Swift, KimK, NikkieTutorials, and definitely all the Kpop Idols like Hyuna, and even the male idols like Shinee because they all have flawless skin!





What is your everyday #FOTD?


I can't live without my red lippie and cat eye liner basically. Eyebrows have recently become my obsession too, but I'm still trying to perfect them.

An ingredient that has been making quite a stir in the skincare market hails all the way from Jeju Island in Korea. It is the home of Jeju volcanic ingredients that have been proven effective in removing sebum and other impurities. It exfoliates dead skin cells, smooths out the skin, has a cooling effect, and contracts pores! What more can you ask for?



Sleeping Masks

This stuff puts the "beauty" in "sleeping beauty" because you can literally sleep while having it on your face. Apply it as the last step in your skincare routine on days when your skin is feeling dry and dehydrated. Wash it off the morning after and you'll notice that you've awoken to fresh, hydrated skin. 



Anti-Aging Products

We all want our natural glow and youthful skin to stay, which explains why more and more anti-aging products and ingredients are found in most skincare products. Because prevention is better than cure, brands have been introducing various technologies and ingredients for products to be effective for all ages and skin types. You can choose from moisturisers, serums, and even makeup. Most products now come with the anti-aging ingredients that we need!



Tea Tree Products

Tea Tree products are loved by most skin types as it is a natural alternative to Benzoyl peroxide, an ingredient found in most acne products. It is effective in solving acne problems by killing the bacteria, reducing inflammation, getting rid of dead skin cells. Plus, it is much more affordable than most acne products in the market.
