Smudge-Proof Eye Makeup? No Sweat, Here’s How We Do It
We sussed out some products – drugstore finds included – that will help us beat the heat, humidity and oily skin to keep our eye makeup in lockdown.| October 21, 2019
Singapore’s tropical weather truly does our makeup absolutely no favours at all. Hands up if you’ve ever spent way too much time (as well as cotton buds and makeup remover during failed attempts) trying to perfect that winged eyeliner only for the heat and humidity to ruin it before the day is over. The oil and perspiration that emerges from the weather almost guarantees midday makeup migration.
No one wants to be that girl with raccoon eyes and creased eyeshadow on her lids, and so nothing catches our attention quicker than the words “long-lasting” and “waterproof” when we are in the makeup aisle, because who has time for constant touch ups?
We understand the pain of having your makeup slide right off your face and so, here’s a formidable, melt-proof makeup combination that will help keep your eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara in place whether you need to be at a boardroom or a party.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner
With a super-fine felt tip maximises precision, this cult favourite sure lives up to its reputation.
Excel Colour Lasting Gel Liner
Excel’s products are the latest gems that we’ve stumbled upon at our local drugstore, Watsons. The eye liner glides on smoothly and its formula is resistant to sweat, sebum and water. The cherry on top would be that it contains moisturizing sodium hyaluronate and swertia japonica extract, which helps to nourish the sensitive area around your eyes.
Excel Curl Up Mascara
Get the best of both worlds with this mascara, which contains both long and short fingers as well as a serum that repairs damaged eyelashes. The product dries quickly, leaving your eyelashes black, spiky and long in no time. The best part is that it does not weigh your lashes down at all, so you don’t have to worry about having droopy eyelashes by the time you’re done with your day.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Many members of Team Kulala have been using this primer potion for years and we can’t get enough of it. The doe-foot applicator allows for a precise application every time since it gives us good control over the product. Our only gripe would be that the primer may be a little hard to blend, so do swipe less product over your eyelid before smoothing it out.
