Insider Roundup: The 2nd Edition Of Bata Fashion Weekend & More | Clozette


A new week makes us open our eyes and ears to new possibilities and fun learnings — and, yes, that includes our openness to finding out the latest and hottest bits of information in the worlds of fashion and beauty. As always, we serve them piping hot.


Bata Fashion Weekend




Now in its second year, the Bata Fashion Weekend celebrates fashion and craftsmanship with music. Titled "The Sound of Style," the celebration featured the launch of the shoe brand's new song, a showcase of exclusive collections, and the announcement of the winners of the Young Designers Challenge 2018. It was truly a fun-filled weekend. P.S. We were there to celebrate the inaugural run of the fashion event. Check out the highlights of our trip here.

Envelope yourself in the feeling of romance as you go around SOOKEE Jewellery's flagship store at VivoCity. The store's aesthetic is inspired by the hourglass, which gives it a timeless feel. Take your pick from their current collections or have one made especially for the person you love.


Astalift's first makeup collection




Astalift, known for its great skincare offerings, has delved into the world of colour. The Flarosso is their first foray into the makeup world. The collection includes eyeshadow quads, lipsticks, a highlighter, a blush and a couple of brushes. What makes the collection unique is it uses two of Fujifilm's top photography techniques: the overlay effect technology, which boosts the saturation of colours, and edge effect technology, which gives the edges of the makeup more colour saturation.

In this side of the world, we're already used to the face-melting heat. But summer is a different story.  The temperature steps several notches up to the point that we want to wear the lightest, breeziest outfits we have — the same goes for our beauty products.


With this level of heat, our skin should feel as light and as ventilated as needed, considering that the crazy weather combined with the wrong beauty products simply spell skin disaster. So ahead, we share some of the best beauty products to bless your face and body with this season. 


CANVAS Instant Hydrating Mask



SGD20/~USD14.95


Your skin will be the most visible indicator that you're in need of hydration. But with this luxurious blend of Oakmoss Absolute, Spirulina and Macadamia Seed Oil, you can replenish the lost moisture in your skin and bring back its natural radiance. Remember: The best glow this summer is the glow coming from within. 


Supergoop! Mineral Invincible Setting Powder SPF45




SGD45/~USD33.63


One of the ways to keep our makeup in place in this heat is by using setting powders. So why not hit two birds with one stone by setting your MOTD in full flawless fashion while still keeping your skin protected?  This sweat-resistant setting powder by popular suncare beauty brand Supergoop! also contains Ceramide 3 that helps retain your skin's moisture, perfect for making sure your skin is in top shape even under the immense heat. 


Clarins SOS Primer





The secret to a good makeup look no matter how bold or minimal it is is a good base. And this primer not only does a great job in prepping your skin for whatever look you have in mind but it is also perfect for doing touch-ups on-the-go. Definitely deserves a place in your summer makeup bag. 


innisfree Whitening Pore Tone Up Moisturizer



 SDG38/~USD28.40


Sometimes, even wearing foundation in this heat can feel too much for our skin to handle. So why not go bare? This moisturiser from cult favourite brand Innisfree has an instant tone correction function that evens the appearance of yellow and blemished spots. It also has a luminous finish for plump and healthy-looking skin and anti-dust properties that are perfect for extra protection, no matter what fun-under-the-sun activity you have in mind this season.




Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipgloss




SGD32/~USD23.93


We all know how tacky lipgloss can be, which doesn't make it for summer. But matte lipsticks can also be drying. So with this one, you could do no wrong. The cushion-soft formula and high colour payoff makes it comfortable, not sticky, and longlasting to wear throughout the day for that perfect glossed-up and hydrated pout. 


Kate Tokyo Powdery Skin Maker



SGD34/~USD25.42


Full coverage? Check. Pore-blurring? Check. Matte, oil-free feeling? Check! This new foundation from Kate Tokyo gives the perfect formula and finish that adheres to the skin as a liquid foundation and dries down into a powder for a great matte-but-not-flat finish. Did we mention there's no stickiness or heaviness in the wear at all?



Take these beauty picks on your dream destination as stated by the stars.
