This March is all about making an impact — from championing a cause and empowering fellow women to arming yourself with a kickass look to conquer the day’s challenges with confidence. Ahead, we’ve rounded up our top style and beauty picks that will help give us that added boost of confidence in creating a lasting, positive impression on others.
"Before aspiring to make an impact, I need to make sure first that I'm ready to face anything — literally and figuratively. That's why I'm upping my skincare game this month with the help of the Pai Skincare Chamomile & Rosehip Calming Day Cream. Made with calming chamomile extract and brightening rosehip, this cream will help give me that boost of confidence I need to tackle anything head-on, first thing in the morning."
"Jeans are my go-to bottoms since they are chic, versatile, and allow for ease of movement no matter what I have planned for the day. So when I saw Net-A-Porter’s latest RE/DONE capsule collection featuring silhouettes inspired by ‘60s to ’90s denim trends, it immediately caught my fancy. My personal pick is The Pixie (in black) that features a high-rise wide-legged cut that tapers beautifully down the ankles. I believe it would look flattering on my figure and is versatile enough for both casual-chic to edgier ensembles that represent my personal style.
Aesthetics aside, the denim collection is sustainably produced (some from vintage Levi’s and others from post-consumer recycled fabrics) following the pledge of RE/DONE’s commitment to using less water in 2020. Its six variations also represent the character of the six women who helped create this curation, in celebration of pieces 'made by women, for women'. It definitely adds to the impact of wearing this in my wardrobe with this piece of info in mind.”
"Whatever the occasion, it's important that our eyebrows are on-fleek. Even if we're going out with minimal makeup, we can't leave our arches untouched as they make or break our look. Personally, though, I don't like having my brows look heavily drawn on, so I'm really hoping to get the new Estée Lauder Featherlight Brow Enhancer to give me well-defined brows that still look natural.
Its weightless and sheer ink is buildable with its ultra-fine tip, so it's definitely perfect for creating that full, bold look stat. The best part? It's completely smudge- and sweat-proof, so you'll be sure it will last all-day-long in our humid tropical climate."
"This product is a modern interpretation of Chloé's series of perfumes. I love floral and fruity scents so this is perfect for me. It is fresh, feminine and exudes spontaneity and unpredictable charm. It is not too overpowering and I love that it stays on for quite a bit."
"If there's one bag I can't get out of my mind, it has to be Sandro's Pastille Bag from their latest Spring-Summer 2020 collection. The bag is pieced together by acetate pastilles with a metallic chain for easy carrying and a satin dust-bag slipped inside it. This bag easily adds a touch of sophistication to any outfit that it's paired with. It also comes in two sizes and in other colours including mauve, black and leopard. I wish I could own them all because one bag is never enough.”
“I’m always on the hunt for a roomy yet stylish carry-all to store my laptop and other essentials, and this tote bag from Coach’s highly anticipated collaboration collection with BAPE hits all the right notes. I also love how Coach’s signature pattern is crossed with BAPE®’s Ape Head logo and rendered in colourful rainbow jacquard. True streetwear fanatics would be able to spot and appreciate these thoughtful design details.”
