MOONSHOT Launches In Singapore | Clozette

What comes to mind when you think of YG Entertainment? K-pop stars Big Bang, 2NE1 and Psy? We don't blame you, but you might want to start remembering this name: moonshot.


A beauty brand housed under YG Plus, the non-entertainment arm of YG Entertainment, moonshot is making its way to Singapore and Malaysia after its successful launch in October 2014. We attended the Korean beauty brand's debut event at Sephora Singapore last Saturday.

With its name derived from the launch of a spacecraft to the moon, moonshot celebrates boldness, youthfulness and individuality. From a company that has birthed exceptional artistes known for their unique sense of style (think G-Dragon), we wouldn't expect anything less from its very own beauty label.

And mind you, it's not just another gimmick riding on the YG name. The beauty brand is supported by LVMH and utilises its beauty experts to lend their expertise on cosmetics manufacturing. The result? A variety of quality products that boasts an incredible range of colours paired with long-lasting comfort.


Expect a full range of colours to match your everyday looks.


To cater to the humidity and preference for simpler makeup in Singapore and Malaysia, adaptations were made to specific products. Skincare and base makeup products, for instance, are formulated to deliver a cooling sensation upon application – definitely a plus to combat the tropical climate.

There's no doubt that we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for the next moonshot collection. But for now, here are our picks from the brand's three signature categories:

Whether you're a student, a working girl, or a jetsetter, your urge for a girls' night out is undeniable. Thus, your go-to makeup bag should always be ready for a makeup transformation. And surprisingly, you don't need to remove everything entirely. You just need to wear the right makeup look during the day and change it up a bit from there for your night out!


Here are 6 things you need in your makeup bag for that easy peasy day-to-night makeup look transformation! 


--------------------------


Mineral Foundation

Take into account that your base makeup for the day should already provide you the coverage you need until night-time. We suggest you follow this base makeup routine and when the time for touch-up comes, use a mineral foundation.This kind of foundation provides sheer coverage that you can easily apply on top of your existing face makeup and it won't even look cakey. Make sure you remove excess oil first and apply with a makeup brush for an easy application. 

Eyeshadow Palette With Shimmery Colours

A little bit of shimmer goes a long way. You don't need to bring your big eyeshadow palettes for your makeup bag, just bring your no-fail palette that includes shimmery colours for a glamorous eyeshadow colour. Or, if you have a make-your-own type of palette, add your favourite night-time makeup colours there for a quick MOTD transformation. 



Makeup Wipes

Even if you may be adding more makeup to your existing look, you would still need your makeup wipes to remove either or both your eyeshadow and your lipstick colours. To ensure a hassle-free makeup removal, use a makeup wipe!



Falsies

Stock-up on dramatic falsies and add them to makeup bag whenever you feel like a Girls' Night Out is about to transpire later on. A pair of falsies add instant drama to your eye makeup look. In fact, you can do away with the rest and add these with a bold lipstick shade and you're good to go!



Contour Kit

You should always bring your contour kit with you because you'll never know when the need for a defined face arises. Formal events and a fabulous night out with your girls are situations that demand a sculpted face. Amplify your base makeup by contouring the side if your cheeks, nose, and forehead for a defined face shape. Top it off with highlighted brow bones, cheek, nose, and cupids bow for an all-out glam MOTD for the night. 



Bold Lip Colour

The haze in Singapore has gotten worse and it's time we get involved in keeping our lovely Clozetters safe from the haze--or rather, help them beat the haze! Haze is a combination of dust, smoke, and other dry particles that obscure the clarity of the sky. It can affect your lungs, skin, eyes, and overall health pretty bad


To fight these effects, here are 5 ways to maintain your healthy body and finally beat the haze! 


--------------------------


Put Your Mask On

The easiest way to keep the harmful haze particles at bay is by wearing a mask. And not just any surgical or paper mask, an N95 mask. It's a special type of mask that filters the air you breathe and prevents particles from the polluted air from entering your body. It's not the most fashionable addition to your look, but for your safety, it's worth it. 

Get Plants For Your Home

Getting a whiff of clean air is close to impossible. So other than turning on the AC all day, try placing more plants inside your home instead. The will give you haze-free air that your body needs! Our research says the best ones in the market are Areca Palm, Mother-in-Law’s Tongue, and the Money Plant. The recommended number of plants depends on your space, with at least one plant per 100 sq ft.



Use Gentler, Antioxidant-rich Products

The last thing your face needs during the haze season are layers and layers of harsh products. Your face needs extra love and care, so go for gentle and lightweight products and tools. Choose those that are rich in antioxidants to improve the skin's cell membrane and to better protect it from the nasty air. Also, drink more water and detoxifying juices for an effective cleanse and hydration inside and out.



Take Care of Your Eyes

Our friend Raymond Song, an eye care specialist and senior professional service manager from Bausch + Lomb gave us eye-opening facts about the haze. Our eyes' protection is as important as skincare as the haze will make also our eyes dry and irritable. Make sure they're always moist by using preservative-free eye drops regularly.

Other ways to care for your eyes is to blink more (yes, this is true) and stay hydrated to prevent eye strain. If you have bad eyesight, opt for Bausch + Lomb’s Biotrue ONEday disposable contact lenses or wear glasses instead. Lastly, always wash your hands before handling your eyes to keep it away from dust particles and irritants. 


Travel

If you really cannot stand the haze any more and it's getting a bit hazardous for your health, travel and stay longer than usual in your choice of destination. Nothing beats clearer air, blue skies, and a break from the haze. You'll love it!
