Yes, Asia’s Next Top Model’s Cycle 5 winner Maureen Wroblewitz had that whole “just a pretty face” thing going on; but what’s wrong with a “pretty face”? This face won her the Maybelline challenge during episode 3 after all, and if these images are anything to go by, it’s a pretty face that’s doing a real good job at making this makeup relatable – and isn’t that the whole point?
In this climate, a foundation that fits right usually means a natural, softly matte finish. The Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation has that, plus our favourite foundation characteristic: porelessness. About time to stow those blotting papers away.

Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation, $19.90
FaceStudio Master Strobing Stick, $18.90
FaceStudio Master Strobing Cream, $18.90
V-Face Contour Duo Powder, $21.90

Here’s an alternative to the (rather tired) gradient lip: get matte lipsticks in bright pink and red, and wear them in a light-to-dark or dark-to-light gradation. The shades from the Color Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick range, with their intense powdery pigments, will definitely stand out.

If you’ve decided it’s time to have a little bit more fun with your eyeliner, we applaud you. Go forth! This will take one with an ultra-thin yet firm tip though, for optimal control – like the Eyestudio Hypersharp Laser 0.01mm Liner. Define the trickier edges with some clever use of concealer.
FOR THIS LOOK, TRY:
Eyestudio Hypersharp Laser 0.01mm Liner in Black, $19.90 (*new price starting from 1 July 2017, down from $21.90!)
Instant Age Rewind Dark Circles Eraser Treatment Concealer, $19.90
Push Up Drama Angel Mascara, $21.90

Everyone deserves a set of statement-making brows, even if it takes faking them. The Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer Mascara has a gel formula infused with fibres, to be applied with a precise tapered brush, to add volume where there might not be in reality.
