What's In My Beauty Bag: Clozette Ambassador Edition | Clozette

A woman's bag is a never-ending mystery. It contains not just her essentials, but bits and pieces of her personality as it is her daily companion throughout her many ventures. And it made us curious: what do some of our Clozette Ambassadors take under their wing as deal with their hectic schedules?

Ahead, let's take a peek at what digital influencers Chi Maracha, Char Deocareza, and Mariane Lim have in their beauty bags, and learn more deets about their chosen essentials. 


Char Deocareza




"Personally, I don't like a heavy bag, and bringing what I only need for a day is enough. I normally bring my daily essentials such as powder, lipstick, lip balm, mirror, phone, wallet, planner and a pen. In addition to that, I also throw in my sunnies and lotion as they are part of my summer essentials. 

My day is usually full of activities so I see to it that my planner is always with me. I also make sure I keep my skin protected from the UV rays of the sun so I always bring my body serum, too."


Chi Maracha




"I usually bring my wallet with ID, my protection from heat like sunglasses and my cute fan, my perfume, a pen, my trusty phone and headset to deal with long travels or crazy traffic, and lastly, my powder and lippies to help me freshen up!" 

Mariane Lim



"What's inside my bag? Here's a peek into some of my favourite items that I'm always carrying around: my phone, favourite lippies and liptint, sunglasses, eyebrow pencil, L'Oreal Infallible powder and foundation to keep me fresh all day, my favourite Soleil Et Lune perfume, and of course, my body serum because it has advanced SPF33 and protect me from UV rays."

In this part of the world, we’re no strangers to humidity and the harsh rays of the sun. Still, everything’s more intense during the summer. So before we even have to face common summer skincare woes, it’s best to prevent them from happening. 

Ahead, we share what changes you should make in your beauty routine in order to avoid blunders this season.


Skincare

Summer or not, using sunscreen should be a no-brainer. But since the sun is more unforgiving this season, lathering on sunscreen should be bumped up in your priority list. Also, we’re not kidding when we say the sun can make you age faster. If you haven’t started yet, now is the good time to start with anti-ageing products. 


Summer also means stickiness. Avoid the icky feeling by switching your heavy cream to a lightweight gel. Plus, refresh your skin by using a face mist or a calming toner. As for the skin on your body — it’s time to switch to a body serum or gel.

Time to say a temporary goodbye to your heavy foundations and start saying hello to face colours with lighter formulation. Think BB, CC and cushion! They provide light to medium coverage with an addition of skincare benefits. Instead of powders, opt for creams and tints for a natural look and lightweight feel. 


Add a bit of shimmer to your lids to make your eyes stand out. For the lips, go for stains; swipe them on and see how the colour won’t budge and not dry your puckers out. If you’re set to attend a special event where you need more colour and coverage, though, just remember this keyword: waterproof.


Hair

The heat tends to dry our hair out. If you don’t want brittle and lifeless hair, use a conditioning hair mist. With the heat, you’d want to wash your hair often. But doing so may not be good for your tresses, so try using dry shampoo in between washes.


Nails

Heading to the beach or the pool this season? Make sure you pamper your cuticles before taking a dip as the heat and the saltiness of the water can dry out the nails and make them brittle. Apply a salve or a balm to your hands and nails. As for colour, we’re blushing for pinks this summer!
