Are you after that fresh-faced glow? Dewy makeup is one of the easiest go-to looks.

However, this look can be hard to master without the right products.

So we’ve rounded up the beauty products that’ll have you shimmering and sparkling in no time!

The key to having dewy, fresh skin is prepping your skin with a matte primer as this will create a perfect canvas.

“Awaken creativity to reveal undiscovered beauty,” that is what International artistic director uchiide says regarding Shu Uemura's take on street art and beauty--a street art inspired collaboration for their newest Vision of Beauty Collection Vol. 2. Haute Street

The collection is sparked by street art as a premium means of visual expression and poetry in the modern city--meant to lead you down a liberating road of feminine beauty with inspired daily make-up, artistic palettes of colour, and perfectly calculated brush strokes. 

Our personal favourite from the bunch is the tint in gelato. It comes in a paint-tube-inspired packaging so you can paint the town in 4 shades of Urban Coral, Graffiti Orange, City Dusk, Street Rose. It also has a fresh and creamy texture that's super pigmented and blendable--easily transitioning between variations of finish (from intense dewy to soft matte). 

The haute street look goes downtown edge with a range of products consisting of 2 palettes of 6 eyeshadow shades ranging from easy-to-wear neutrals to eye-catching pearl artist shades, drawing pencils, limited edition dual-ended eye color pencils in vivid paint shades, and 4 rouge unlimited central and supreme shine lipsticks in signature lippie shades city neon, avenue sunset, brick burgundy, and highway pink.

Aside from the bright pigments and street art-inspired packaging by artist, Ōyama Enrico Isamu, the collection's focus is also make-up design that emphasizes the V shapes of the face and accentuates the V's with colour.

The face's V shapes are: the outer corner or inner corner of the eyes, the end of the eyebrows, the cheekbones, and lip corners. Highlighting the V shape with a vibrant colour will give you an effortless, modern and stylish look; skin will look clear; and colour will blend with the contours of your face.

Add the V-beauty techniques to your daily make-up for a creative, cool, fresh twist to your beauty style as inspired by this latest collection by Shu Uemura


Here at the Clozette Headquarters, we're basically obsessed with everything and anything makeup, especially if they come in tons of colours like eyeshadow palettes! Usual favourites are neutral and nude palettes, but occasional neon and bright palettes are also favoured. However, we realised that these multiple shades also come with a hefty price tag, so we found better alternatives for you that are super affordable yet effective in creating a variety of looks! 

Here are our top 5 favourite eyeshadow palettes from the drugstore! 


Sleek Makeup Sunset i-Divine Palette

To start this list, we have Sleek Makeup Sunset i-Divine Palette. It consists of twelve eyeshadows that are intensely pigmented and long-wearing. It is said that applying these to bare lids get bright, true-to-pan colours!

E.L.F Cosmetics is certainly one of the best brands in the drugstore and their eyeshadow palettes are a great choice for starters and pros alike. The Little Black Beauty Book, Cool edition is a mix of pastels and dark colours for a classic smokey eye look. We also recommend their 48-piece palette for tons of options with great pigmentation for experimenting with various looks.

Wet n Wild's reformulated eyeshadow colours contain macadamia seed oil and is paraben free. The 5-pans are an absolute must-have as they adhere to a certain feel depending on the colour selection. Plus, they come with labels so you can easily sport that smokey look. If you love matte, these pans are definitely a bang for your buck!

Catrice Absolute Rose

Catrice came up with their Absolute Line and although almost all their palettes are commendable, we can't help but favour their Absolute Rose palette. Consisting of soft nudes and trendy rosé shades of mattes and shimmers, these colours are perfect for the girly-girl in you.

If you happen to pass by the drugstore and find one of these, then it's your lucky day! This palette runs out fast, so if it's staring straight back at you--don't hesitate to get it! Aside from its colour selection that are a perfect mix of mattes and shimmers, these neutral shades are also super-blendable and last for up to 12 hours. Talk about the dream palette on a budget!
