Beauty & Style Picks We're Taking To The New Year


We may be in the midst of the last month of the year, but that doesn't mean beauty and fashion shopping would be put to a halt! This season is ripe with options for style and beauty, but we have to play favourites. Check out which picks we might just take with us through 2019!



Sunplay Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Mist SPF 50 PA++++, SGD19.90/~USD20

"This UV mist from Sunplay Skin Aqua for face and body is not just another spritz of sun protection. It's also lavender-tinted, which helps to correct and even out the skin tone while on the go — how cool is that for an au naturel day out?"



Furla Mimi bag, price unavailable

"The holidays are all about dressing to the nines and going above and beyond the usual. While I'm usually one to keep things minimal, I'm taking the season as an excuse to add a bit more glam to my holiday party ensembles. My weapon of choice: the Furla Mimi bag. I mean, it's in a seductive shade of red you can't really say no to. Plus, the size is just perfect for nights out and soirees."

Bata Christmas Capsule Collection in Gold Shely, SGD59.95/~USD44

"I'm very particular about my choice of footwear. Usually, I go for very neutral colours to make sure they match everything in my wardrobe effortlessly. But hey, 'tis the season to have more fun, right? So this season, I'm thinking of swapping my black and nude heels with something a little bolder like this Gold Shely Peep Toe Shoes from Bata's Christmas Capsule Collection. Talk about adding some glitter and shine to my holiday wardrobe, right?"

Maison Christian Dior JASMIN DES ANGES, price unavailable

"It's said that the holiday season is the busiest and most stressful time of the year. Well, in that case, I'm determined to remain chill and just enjoy the festivities without getting caught up in the rush. I find that one of the best ways to keep myself calm is by wearing a perfume I love. I've always been a fan of fresh, floral scents and I'm told that Maison Christian Dior's JASMIN DES ANGES is one of the best in the market right now. So naturally, I'm inclined to give it a try. It also doesn't hurt that the perfume comes in a pretty, minimalist packaging."
