FAVE 5: New Beauty | Clozette


We all have beauty favourites that we can never get enough of. But sometimes, as we make our way through counters and shelves, we discover new finds — maybe not new releases, but new to us — that make it into our stash. Some of them eventually usurp the place of the ones previously at the top of our list, which is inevitable. Out with the old and in with the new, they say. So if you're heading out to a shopping spree soon, here's a glimpse of which beauty products the Clozette Community is currently obsessing over for some ideas. Who knows? Your next best pick may just be on this list.

Don't you think that the concept of natural-looking makeup is quite ironic? It looks simple and yet the process can be much more complicated than doing your go-to smokey eye. But maybe that's about to change. New beauty launches are making it easier for gals who love fresh makeup looks to achieve that elusive barely-there rosy glow. Currently, we've got our eye on the LANEIGE Stained Glow Lip Balm and Cheek Glow.


With these latest releases, after you ace your base, you're only two steps away from getting that radiantly blushing complexion. All you have to do is pat the lightweight formula from the Cheek Glow cushion blusher then seal hydration and add tint to your lips using the Stained Glow Lip Balm. That's it! No complicated tutorials needed.

We’re sure you’ve already thought of what to wear and what type to look to try for your special date on Valentine’s Day. But may we entice you to give this new romantic beauty trend a go? It’s everything you’d want in a date night look — sweet with a hint of sultriness for an alluring vibe. Plus, it’s so easy to do.



Perfect your base




It’s no secret that a good makeup look starts with a good base. And while this look is focused on the eyes, we can’t discount the importance of a flawless complexion. For this, we suggest the Esteé Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation because it delivers flawless coverage and lasts as long as you would like it to.

Eyes are the prize




The look is similar to the draping trend, but instead of using your blush to drape your temples, this one focuses on the eyes. You can also look at it as an exaggerated smokey eye. But opt for a pink shade like the Kate Tokyo Dark Rose Shadow instead of blacks or browns for that romantic appeal. Brush the colour on your entire lid and brow bone. Apply the hue on your temple. dag the colour down until the high point of your cheeks, making the eyeshadow look like your blush.


Make them flutter




Complement the bright colour with a clean, fluttery set of lashes. Instead of going heavy on volumising, we suggest you use a lifting and lengthening mascara like the Benefit Roller Lash instead. If you’re a fan of falsies, you can apply a set, too.

Contrast is key




For the lips, we say contrast is key. Pair the pink with a bold red lip like the Hera Sensual Intense Glaze in 319 Pout Red. While they’re still in the same hue family, the contrast in saturation balances the look. Go for gloss instead of matte to complement the softness of the eye look.
