As much as you love your work, there are days when it can be very draining. Since there are presentations, reports, and meetings, everybody can use a little more pick-me-up to jumpstart the busy day — or week — ahead. And what better way to pump up your mood and confidence than makeup? 


Ahead, we share some MOTDs to keep you empowered and strutting with grace as you run through your tedious work schedule. 


Classic red lips

Feeling a little overwhelmed with everything you need to accomplish? Swipe on a red lippie and feel the power surge through your veins instantly! This classic look helps not just your vibe but also your psyche, and it really gives an extra pump of energy to help you work your magic through a hectic day.

Don't have time for touch ups throughout the rest of the day? Even if you don't have time to refresh your lippie in between meetings and work errands, you're still making a statement with your peepers. Save the nudes for your lips and let your eyes do the talking with this look.

Go bold

On the grind from day to night? Take on the day with a power outfit and a bold look. Intense metallic eye makeup and a deep cherry lip is an 'I can conquer this day' statement in itself and you know it.


Lash for days

Stress usually shows significantly through your peepers. Cheat your way out of drowsy eyes and fire up your energy by pumping up your lashes with an extra-volumising and lengthening mascara or by snapping on some falsies.

Is your work starting to feel monotonous? An extra pop of colour can immediately take your power look from a seven to a 10. Use bright colours like pinks, oranges, and reds on your lids, cheeks, or lips to add more fun and flair to your day.

Can you smell the scent of the weekend? Well, we definitely can. And we're looking forward to being engulfed by it, if only for a couple of days. We're already planning our moments of relaxation, but we're still going to make sure we're updated on what' happening, of course. Here are just some of the things we're looking forward to learning more about.



The Heat is on




Everyone has the hots for the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. Nabbing the coveted palette is going to be easy as it is now available in all Sephora stores islandwide in Singapore.


Her name's Gabrielle




A new fragrance from CHANEL is arriving, and it's named Gabrielle. The perfume, created for women who are unabashedly themselves has the floral and feminine notes of ylang-ylang, jasmine and orange blossom. The scent will be available islandwide in August.

Uniqlo continues to be modest



Hana Tajima's latest collaboration with Uniqlo is now available in stores around the world. This is the third collaboration between the designer and the fashion brand featuring modest garments.





Bata at VivoCity



Bata's store at VivoCity has just reopened, and we must say, we're very impressed with how sleek the store looks. It's perfect for the brand's new manifesto, "Me & Comfortable With It." The heritage brand launched their new direction during the first Bata Fashion Weekend in Prague in April, and we were there to be part of the action. Check out the highlights of the event here.



Here's what happened earlier this week.
