“The Girl means being true to yourself and having fun while you’re at it,” said ‘girl of the moment’ Gigi Hadid, muse of the new The Girl by Tommy Hilfiger Eau de Toilette. “For me, that’s appreciating every moment, laughing at myself, and surrounding myself with everything that makes me feel happy.”



Is that girl power we hear? Very much so – and that is what Tommy Hilfiger’s latest scent is all about: everything that screams effortless energy and an irrevocable confidence that is as authentic as the wearer.

Fronted by Hadid, who is also the iconic American brand’s global ambassador for womenswear, accessories and fragrance, The Girl by Tommy Hilfiger Eau de Toilette is clean and fresh; airy and crisp; fun and incredibly sexy.



With an energising concoction of green pear, violet leaf, and green fig as its top notes, followed by heart notes of jasmine petals and silky muguet; finishing with a musky blend of cedarwood and cashmere, this fruity-floral fragrance captures the unique individuality of the girl.

Who is ‘the girl’? Ahead, we asked five digital beauty influencers – Chin, Kat, Nina, Lexie, and Faye – to share their definition of The Girl. Well then, which of these five personalities of ‘the girl’ are you? Read on to find out and you might just win a set of The Girl by Tommy Hilfiger Eau de Toilette and a Tommy Hilfiger bag!

Remember: whatever your personality, don’t forget to stay true to yourself – and have fun while you’re at it.

First dates are nerve-wracking. It doesn't matter if you've known the person you're going out with for a long time or they're someone you just met, the pressure to make a good first impression is on. Before you get overwhelmed with jitters, however, take note that you only need one thing: be yourself. But we're not going to discount the fact that preparation can help in making a good impression. We're sure you'd do well in the personality department, so we'll cover the exterior instead.


If you're stressing about what look to go for on your first date, here are some sweet ones that will surely make you look blooming.



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


Pink Perfection




If you're in a romantic mood, try following this makeup tutorial by Sona Gasparian. The pink and gold on her lids are definitely pretty. If you haven't perfected the winged eyeliner yet, you can forego it and this look will still be gorgeous. The pink gloss on the lips is a sweet touch, too.



Just Peachy




While pink is the colour that's often associated with romance, you can definitely veer away from it if you're more of a warm-toned kind of girl. Peach is a pretty hue to sport, too. You can even try a monochromatic peach look like this one made by Pony.

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


Glowy goodness

 



For a first date, you'd want to look glowy and well-rested despite your nerves. If you missed a couple of hours of sleep or if you're just one to hit the sack later than most, take a cue from KathleenLights and glow!  



Keep it light





Don't feel like doing an elaborate look? Go simple and enhance your features. Accentuate your eyes with a bronze product on the lid and pucker up with a pink lipstick just like what Jessica Clements did in this video.  




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


Go for bold
  



There are no rules for what to wear on your first date. Just be yourself. So if you're feeling bold, definitely go for it. Red is romantic and classic. Let your lips do the talking and don a simple eye look just like Teni Panosian did in the video above.  


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

The makeup's covered, but do you already have something to wear? If not, here are some stunning dresses to take inspiration from.

Acing the base is a must if you want a flawless makeup look. While your initial reaction might be to conceal imperfections, colour correcting is actually a better way to achieve picture-perfect skin through makeup.


If you didn't catch up with the colour correcting trend last year, we're here to fill you in. There are two basic rules in colour correcting: know which parts of your face you need to correct and determine what colours you need to use to address the issues. The concept behind colour correcting is you look at the colour of the thing you want to correct and use the shade opposite it in the colour wheel to correct it. Still a bit confused? Here are some colours of correctors and what they are for.



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

Pink


If you have dark or bluish veins or perhaps a discolouration on your face, counteract those with a pink corrector.



Green

If your problem is redness, go for green to neutralize it.

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

Lavender

Having trouble with dullness? Brighten up your face with lavender. You can also use the shade to temper the yellow on your skin.


Illuminate

Now, this is just a bonus. But if you want to have that coveted Korean glow, try highlighting your cheeks, nose line, chin and cupid's bow with an illuminating product.


There are lots of colour correcting products to choose from, but it's good to opt for something in cushion form since they're slightly lighter than the usual cream and liquid forms which correctors come in, making it easier for you to control the colours' opacity. The Etude House Any Cushion Colour Correctors line is the perfect pick. With the help of slim layering technology, the products spread thinly on the skin, so you're sure to get a natural-looking effect. The Any Cushion Colour Correctors also contain moisturising sea water from the East Sea of South Korea. Plus, they also contain multi-vitamin B3, which helps your skin get glowing.


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

Etude House Any Cushion Colour Correctors will be available at all Etude House branches in Singapore starting February 3.
