Insider Roundup: UNIQLO X Alexander Wang & More | Clozette


Every day's an opportunity to learn something new. And today we're learning about hot happenings in the worlds of fashion, beauty and healthy living. Ahead, what you need to know right now.


UNIQLO x Alexander Wang




The much-awaited collection between UNIQLO and Alexander Wang on the brand's HEATTECH collection will soon hit stores. Starting 9 November, you can already get your hands on the collection that has colours ranging from Wang's classic black to neon green. The collection also uses neo-futuristic elements that are reminiscent of '80s fashion. Get a preview of the collection here.


Nicolas Ghuesquiere's own line?



Ghesquiere has teased the possibility of launching his own line during a guesting at the ongoing Met conversations. He said he still has lots of stories to tell through and for Louis Vuitton but that he's also open to more possibilities and that includes launching his own line.


A Peter Pan-inspired collection



Besame Cosmetics has announced the release of a secret collaboration with Disney for a Peter Pan-inspired collection. The collection will specifically revolve around Mermaid Lagoon, which got us holding our breath for green eyeshadow and sparkly lipstick. Both styles are not instantly associated with vintage-inspired Besame, though, so we're keeping our eyes peeled for the collection.


Clarks at ION Orchard




Get excited to set foot on the new, "pure" Clarks store at ION Orchard in Singapore. Speaking of the inspiration behind the branch which has classic leather buttonback seats on birch floors and neutral-coloured materials, Guillaume Nagy, President for SEA & Oceania at Clarks said, "The focus of the store design was to make the shoe the star and to tell immersive stories that resonate with our consumers.”

'Tis the season for soirees. So make sure you're ready to paint the town red and enjoy the night away — in style and on point, of course. But we know, you're busy and hardly have the time to spend on primping yourself up. So here's an easy way to wow without exerting too much effort. Try this for an ethereal makeup look you can finish in a jiffy.


Start with a clean slate


Make sure you have a clean, spotless base before you layer different products on top. For spot concealing and making sure your under-eyes look fresh and well-rested, dab on a concealer that's hardworking but feels lightweight. Check out the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer, It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Correcting Cream, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind, Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer and CLIO Kill Cover Founwear Cushion XP for good options.

Tantalise with the eyes


Let your eyes do the talking and make sure they stand out. Adorn your peepers with a warm hue and make your lashes look fluttery with the help of a mascara that gives volume without clumping. Take your pick from Benefit Cosmetics BADgal Bang! Mascara, Clinique Lash Power Mascara Long-wearing Formula, Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara, Etude House Lash Perm Curl-Fix Mascara Long Lash and Lancome Hypnose Star Waterproof Mascara.


Go for glow


The holidays are the best excuse to just shine, shine, shine! Layer your highlighters, starting with a cream one as a base and then a powder as a topper.

Brow beat


Don't forget to frame your face with the help of eyebrow shaping and filling. Use whatever formula you're comfortable with and follow the natural shape of your brows when you line them. Fill in sparse areas and brush for a soft effect.



Gloss on


Top the look off with a high-shine gloss that doesn't feel sticky on the lips. Our favourites include the Dior Addict Lacquer Plump, Laneige Stained Glasstick, Lancome Juicy Shaker Lip Gloss, NYX Intense Butter Gloss and Sisley Phyto-Lip Delight.
