Multi-Tasking Makeup Heroes For Every Skin Type | Clozette

When it comes to makeup, we think multi-use products are a little bit underrated. Apart from the fact that they offer the most bang for your buck in terms of usage (one product for lids, lips AND cheeks!), they’re also easy to carry on the go or for trips where you need to make the most of your storage space. So today we celebrate these small but handy creations with recommendations for every skin type so you can achieve that easy, effortlessly glowing look in under five minutes.

For Dry Skin: ILIA Multi-Stick

Beauty can be a lot of things — creative, transformative, experimental. But more than anything, it’s personal. This is especially so when it comes to skincare. Sometimes you’d read a product review, try the product for yourself but end up not having the same experience as the reviewer. It’s the reason why the term “Your Mileage May Vary” or YMMV is popular in the Asian beauty community. But you don’t really have to rely on others’ experience anymore. You can give your skin exactly what it needs. How? Meet the Alcheme Personalised Lightweight Moisturiser

Depending on your skin condition and concerns, this moisturiser will give benefits to keep your skin in top shape. Only the ingredients for your needs will be included in your moisturiser, so there’s no waste from using other ingredients. Ahead, see which concoction is perfect for you and the key benefits you can get.

Hydration your way

Give your skin just the right amount of hydration while protecting it from water loss, soothing it and reducing inflammation. The Alcheme Personalised Lightweight Moisturiser contains Camellia Seed Oil, Hyaluronic Acid and Allantoin that deeply hydrate the skin to make it look softer and plumper, while Wheat Seed Extract Ceramide restores the skin barrier.

Anti-ageing for your needs

No matter if you have a few or a lot, you’ll surely be happy to know that this moisturiser will help in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps in tightening pores, making your skin look smoother. Plus, packed with Centella Asiatica, Vitamin C, Babchi Seeds, Ginseng Root Extract and Moringa Seed Extract, it protects the skin from damage caused by external factors such as pollution.

Every journey should start on a good note. This is true for trips and vacations, but the same can be said about beauty. A good foundation base ensures that your makeup will last as long as you want until you want it off. With it being of utmost importance, failing at it can be daunting. But you don’t have to worry, actually. Here’s a guide on where to start when it comes to using foundation. 

Look in your locale

Look for Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation in your area

One of the most unfortunate things when it comes to makeup is using something that has worked for others but doesn’t quite fit the climate you’re in. So make sure you start your search with a quick look at what’s available in beauty counters near you and can stand the test of your locale’s weather.

For us in the tropics, a sweat-resistant foundation is a must. The Esteé Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation is perfect for this. It’s been proven to withstand hours in sunny, humid weather, keeping you looking fresh all day long. Water-related mishaps are also a no match for its water-resistance.

Find your true hue

There’s nothing more noticeable than a foundation shade that doesn’t match your natural colour. So having one that fits perfectly is a must. With Esteé Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation’s 40 diverse shades, you’re sure to find your match.

Fit it into your lifestyle

A great foundation should suit your lifestyle

We can all admit that social media is now an inevitable part of our lives. So it almost goes without saying that each moment can be Instagrammable and, of course, our makeup look has to be just as ready. Make sure you get good coverage that leaves you looking naturally flawless. The Esteé Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation offers 10CM high coverage, giving you the power to cover unwanted spots and leaving you looking airbrushed and radiant.

Make sure it’s safe for your clothes

We know; it sounds weird. But have you ever had a white shirt you really loved but had to let go of because makeup transferred on it? You won’t have to worry about being cautious with wearing white — or any colour for that matter — when you have a foundation that is transfer-proof like the Esteé Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation.

It’s got to be as strong as your personality 

Your foundation should suit your personality

You’re a boss babe who’s busy goal-getting, so you need something that can stay on as long as you do. The Esteé Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation is just what you need. It stays on for up to 24 hours flawlessly — no cracks or meltdowns!
