We're always in awe of the photos we see in the Community, whether they be flatlays or OOTDs. And we're just as inspired to see makeup looks on the feed. The creativity and skills make us want to pick up our kit and start painting our faces, too. Lately, our eyes have been on glam looks. Scroll down to find out why.
The weather's getting cooler on our side of the world. And when the temperature starts to go down, the desire to relax, unwind and just leave worries behind rises. It's tempting to just curl up in bed and lounge around. But we implore you to make the most out of the longer nights by following this relaxing nighttime routine.
Set the mood
Put your body in the mood for relaxation by playing soothing music and lighting up a candle. There's nothing quite like an olfactory experience to set the vibe.
Leave the remnants of a stressful (or maybe routinary) day behind by making sure you've cleansed your face and body properly. For the face, start off with a gentle but effective makeup remover. Our top picks include the most wanted makeup removers at the 2018 Clozette Beauty Awards: the Garnier All-In-1 Micellar Cleansing Water, Bifesta Eye & Lip Makeup Remover, Bioderma Sensibio H2O, Senka All Clear Oil Whip and Nivea Rose Micellar Water with Oil.
After cleansing your face and body, make sure you nourish your skin. For the body, choose a fast-absorbing moisturiser that promotes silky smooth skin. Our picks are the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion, Crabtree Evelyn Goatmilk & Oat Soothing Body Lotion, Nivea Body Oil in Lotion, The Body Shop Body Yoghurt and Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion.
Treat yourself to relaxation like no other. Use this time as an excuse to indulge in treating your skin woes. Whip out your favourite gadgets for different needs. On top of our list are the Neutrogena Fine Fairness Light Mask, Foreo Luna 2, Refa Carat Massager, Clarisonic Mia 2 Facial Cleansing Brush and Skin Inc Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light.
No, you don't need to break a sweat especially after you've done all those self-loving steps. Do a light stretch just to ease the knots in your muscles. Include a bit of meditation for a more relaxed feel.
It doesn't matter if your choice of comfortable sleepwear is lingerie or a ratty old t-shirt and shorts, the key is to wear one you'll easily feel relaxed in. Put it on, get lost in the scents and sounds around you until you enter deep slumber.

Blushes can be a bit underrated when compared to mesmerising eyeshadow palettes or feature-sharpening contour kits. But hey, it's an important ingredient in one's makeup look, too. Just a swipe of the subtlest colour gives your cheeks a more lively glow and a distinct vibrant appeal that makes all the difference to the entirety of the look. With Laura Mercier's Blush Colour Infusion blushers, your cheek colour will never take the backseat again when it comes to your makeup routine.
No need to worry about over-tapping colour with this blush's sheer and buildable formula for the perfect fresh-faced flush. It's also weightless, lasts for up to 10 hours, and designed to layer flawlessly on either bare skin or both liquid and powder products so you don't have to worry about the application whether you are just chillin' or are on the go. Plus, you can go safe with nice pinks and subtle reds or go bold and experiment with deeper mauve and earthy tones, making your blush experience like never before.
