How To Get Your Favourite E-Commerce Models' Beauty Looks | Clozette


When browsing through our favourite fashion e-commerce sites, it's inevitable that something will catch our eye. And we're not just talking about the fabulous clothes. Sometimes, it's the model's beauty looks that make us do a double-take. Unlike the grand runway makeup trends — make no mistake we love them, too! — these ladies wear a much more achievable look that's fit for everyday life. In other words, they're way more practical than overdrawn eyeliners or lids sprinkled with glitters. Plus, they're also easy enough to copy. Here's how to do it.


Look 1: No-makeup makeup from POMELO

We all love that subtle uplifting aura that a well done no-makeup makeup look gives. The key to mastering this classic beauty trend is to work with only a few products. For the eyes, use only two to four shades. Apply shimmer eyeshadow on your lid to highlight your lids then choose a darker shadow for the crease to define your eyes. Next, pick a lip tint or a tinted balm for a hint of colour on your lips. Finally, finish the look with a swipe of glowy highlighter, preferably one with a creamy texture for a dewy effect. 


Look 2: Minimal sultry makeup from Society A

There's a way to create a bold, sultry look without going over the top. To create this, you have to make your lips the main focus and keep the blush and eyeshadow minimal. Pick a bright colour for your lips like cherry red or vibrant orange. Make sure to keep your brows defined to achieve that nice, polished look.


Look 3: Warm-toned look from ZALORA

LYCKA Chiffon Boat Neck Off Shoulder Short Sleeve Blouse (zalora.com.sg), SGD48.90/~USD35.74; 3INA Matte Eyeliner, SGD23/~USD16.81, Clarins Water Lip Stain in Orange Water, SGD36/~USD26.31; Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat, SGD48/~USD35.08


Get that fresh coral makeup look by exploring different warm-toned products. For the eyes, play three shades and put on the deepest orange or brick shade on the outer v and lower lashline. Add a cat-eye or a classic eyeliner to draw attention to your eyeshadow look. As for the lips, opt for a lightweight lip stain or tint to retain that youthful vibe.


Look 4: Soft beige makeup from POMELO


A woman wearinf a blue and red striped shirt; A bronzer, a blush, a lipstick, and a double-ended foundation and highlighter

ASOS DESIGN Petite 90s crop top in retro stripe with lettuce edges (asos.com)USD19; Chantecaille Sirena Bronzer, SGD131/~USD96.05; NARS x Erdem blush in Loves Me Not, Price unavailable; Etude House Matte Chic Lip Lacquer in Peach Beige, SGD19.90/~USD14.59; BY TERRY Nude-Expert Duo Stick, SGD78/~USD56.97


This chic, soft makeup look concentrates on two things: great base and highlight. First, pick a foundation that will give you medium to full coverage and camouflage imperfections. If necessary, use concealer to cover up blemishes and red spots. Next, take a two-toned bronzer and swipe some colour lightly on your cheekbones (do that fish face if you want) and on your temples. After setting the bronzer, don't forget to add blush on your cheekbones. For eyes, take the same bronzer and apply the darker shade all over your lids and crease, then the lighter shade on your brow bone. Finish the look with a peachy-beige matte lipstick. You can also add some faux freckles if you want to make it more interesting.



Look 5: Bare and bold from Nasty Gal

Hexagon With the Wind Hoop Earrings (nastygal.com), USD4; Fenty Beauty Flyliner Longwear liquid eyeliner, SGD30/~USD22; Dolce & Gabbana Italian Zest Healthy Glow Stick in Bronze, SGD55/~USD40.33; Clarins Joli Rouge Velvet Lipstick in Grenadine, SGD40/~USD29.33


Want to sport a throwback beauty trend? Try this bold look that's reminiscent of the glamorous 1960s. Although it looks elaborate, this makeup style is actually very achievable. To recreate that thick, cat eye you'll need a long-wearing, water-resistant eyeliner with a gel-like consistency to avoid fading or makeup transfer. Apply eyeliner on your upper lashline, then draw a parallel arched line on your lid. Fill the gap between the lines carefully. Next, apply a cream stick bronzer-highlighter on your cheekbones. For lips, pucker up with a deep MLBB shade.

They say men are from Mars and women are from Venus. While we know that individuality plays a huge part in one’s life, preferences and status, there are just some things that men and women really differ from. Case in point: beauty needs and habits. So, ahead, we’re sharing four areas where men and women differ beauty-wise and how to tackle those differences.

Men have more sebaceous glands than women


It’s been scientifically proven that men have more oil glands than women. So, yes, men generally have oilier skin than women. But it’s not just the skin on the face that is oily. Men’s scalps are oilier too, and so they’re more prone to having dandruff. Men also tend to sweat more than women, no matter the level of fitness.

While we’re accustomed to sharing products with the men in our lives, we do actually have different needs. So pamper them with a more powerful option for their scalp, like the new Head & Shoulders ULTRA Men series. Created especially for men’s needs, the line addresses triple scalp issues — dandruff, oil and itch. Infused with deep sea minerals, the products deeply cleanse scalp pores to ensure that scalp problems are addressed.

Infused with deep sea minerals, the shampoo variants from the ULTRA Men series — Cool Menthol that’s infused with peppermint, Anti-Hairfall that has Ginseng extract and Oil Control that contains Tea Tree extract — effectively cleanse the scalp for healthier head and hair.

Products from the series also provide a more enjoyable sensorial experience. They’re fast lathering – to complement the habit of men who spend much lesser time in the shower than women! – and creamy, unlike others that easily run down from your head. They also feel more refreshing on the scalp. Plus, they thoroughly cleanse without being too harsh. So you’re sure to get all styling product residue out while keeping your hair clean and smooth.

Women have thinner skin

Male skin is said to be approximately 20% thicker than women’s, which means the need to exfoliate is greater. While women are advised to slough off dead skin cells two or three times a week, men can do more than that prescribed number. Of course, practising caution is highly recommended. Make sure that the men in your life exfoliate but don’t overdo it.

Men don’t get hyperpigmentation caused by hormones


You may notice that not a lot of men have hyperpigmentation. And while there are different causes of hyperpigmentation, you can say that men are lucky to not be prone to the one caused by hormonal changes. Women who get pregnant or suffer from hormonal imbalance are more prone to getting hyperpigmentation. In these cases, women use products prescribed by their doctors to address the problem while men don’t really have a need to have them looked at.


Women age faster than men

Unfortunately, yes, women tend to physically age faster than men. This is because men have more collagen in the skin. Men can get away with a simple routine while women look for products that help in increasing the production of collagen in their skin. However, when men do get signs of aging, they are more pronounced than women’s.
