When Taeyang sang, “Eyes, Nose, Lips,” he spoke to a lot of girls’ hearts out there – those who have a tough time getting our eyeshadow, lipstick, and other makeup colours to harmonise, that is. On top of that getting ones that suit your skin tone is literally a science. That’s why we’ve put together the ultimate list of classic makeup products for all skin tones.

Eyeshadow – Urban Decay Naked2 Palette

The go-to palette for eyes; featuring 12 shades of neutrals, this palette has all the ingredients for endless eye power.


Urban Decay Naked2 Palette, $83, is available at Sephora.

Eyeliner – Dolly Wink Eyeliner Ii Deep Black

Whether you want to simply go over your lash line or have sharp wings, a deep black eyeliner looks great on everyone. Dolly Wink’s Eyeliner Ii Deep Black is trusted for its easy application and lasting quality.


Dolly Wink Eyeliner Ii Deep Black, $21.15, is available at Watsons.

Mascara – VDL Eye Bomb

The worst thing you could do is to forget to coat your lashes after drawing your eyeliner. VDL Eye Bomb gives enough lift to those Asian lashes, ensuring no clumping and no smudged panda eyes. It’s also really easy to remove.


VDL Eye Bomb, $34, is available at VDL outlets.

Lipstick – M.A.C Ruby Woo

The cherry on top of a fantastic outfit is a set of killer lips, and when in doubt, go red. M.A.C’s Ruby Woo will suit your skin tone whether you are fair or dark-skinned.


M.A.C Ruby Woo, $30, is available at M.A.C counters.

Blush – Benefit BeneTint

A little goes a long way with this cult favourite. A few swishes of this cheek tint will give you a subtle rosy flush that lasts through the day. What’s more, it doubles as a lip stain.


Benefit’s BeneTint, $51, is available at Sephora.

Highlighter – Benefit High Beam

Highlighting brings out the high points in your face (like cheek and brow bones), giving it a more 3-D effect. Benefit’s High Beam is build-able so use according to your skin tone.


Benefit High Beam, $42, is available at Sephora.
