Meet the winners of Clozette Beauty Awards 2021

The modern beauty lover is spoilt for choice. A mall nearest you would probably carry a variety of lipsticks in different shades and textures that are more than you could imagine. If you’re not satisfied with what your locale has to offer, you can try a few clicks on your phone and chance upon  a special edition colour. We are truly living in a time when makeup choices are endless. However, having all these options could also be challenging. When you can have everything, you’d want to pick out the best. Finding the holy grail could be a taxing task, but worry not. Discover the best expert-recommended eye palettes, foundations, and lipsticks at Clozette Beauty Awards 2021.

Enhancing Eye Palettes


Clozette Beauty Awards 2021 Eye Palettes

For over a year now, putting on a mask has become part of our routine, which means covering half our face and leaving our lids and lashes on display. Want to showcase your peepers with glam eye makeup? The Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Soft Glam Eye Shadow Palette~USD35.47 is the perfect pick. Our panel of experts love this for its versatility, compact design and blendable pigments that will allow you to create various eyeshadow looks.

If you’re more fond of ultra dramatic makeup, you may want to add the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Eye Filters - Diva Lights, ~USD66.50 to your collection. This quad palette won its place in the Clozette Beauty Awards 2021 because it delivers a foolproof way to achieve mesmerising Hollywood-inspired looks.

For gals who prefer natural no makeup makeup eyeshadow styles, the Fenty Beauty Snap Shadows in #5 Peach~USD28.82 is a must. It features “no waste” easy-to-use neutral shades that are fit for everyday use, whether it’s for a quick grocery run or for a conference call with your colleagues.

Great Glow-Giving Bases


Clozette Beauty Awards 2021 Foundations

Meet this year’s unrivalled radiance-boosting complexion products! Each of the picks has its own distinguishing features that will appeal to different needs. Looking for a foundation that won’t dry out your skin? The Makeup Forever Reboot Foundation, ~USD53.20 is infused with skincare, promising a hydrated complexion and improved appearance for wrinkles. It also gives a smooth satin finish.

Another foundation problem that some makeup lovers face is the moving and clumping of foundation after a few hours of wear.

Finding the right foundation shade is a challenge. Some will look too pale, some too warm. Discover the perfect shade for you from shu uemura’s Unlimited Glow Breathable Care-In Foundation~USD54.68 colour selection that’s tailored specifically for Asian skin for an undetectable natural-looking foundation finish.



Clozette Beauty Awards 2021 Lipsticks

One is never enough when it comes to lipsticks. Here are three smudge-proof, long-lasting, ride-or-die partners that you don’t want to miss out on. For a high-pigment, full-coverage liquid lipstick that’s also comfortable on the lips, pick up the L'OREAL Infallible Pro-Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick, USD9.99. Another affordable, long-lasting yet non-drying matte lip is the Maybelline® Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick (Coffee Edition), USD7.99. Prefer something more subtle? The M.A.C Powder Kiss Liquid Lipcolour, ~USD30.29 is our pick; it’s loved by our panel for its whipped “mousse-like texture” that will give that trendy blurred matte look spotted on K-pop stars all day long.
