Concert season is upon us and if you’re going to throng through the crowds coupled with Singapore’s humidity, you’ll need some seriously good makeup that won’t make you look like a melting mess. shu uemura has some of the best products that your face and skin can rely on, including setting powders and a fixing mist that’ll keep your makeup looking fresh and natural until you decide to take it off (with the brand’s famous cleansing oil, of course). Take your mind off constantly checking your makeup and having to touch up; here’s everything you need for that long night ahead.

With Singapore’s high humidity and the heat from 10,000 other people, a powder foundation will serve you well to mop up perspiration and keep your skin looking polished. And shu uemura’s Unlimited Nude Foundation Powder Compact is perfect for this; you can use a brush for a neat and sophisticated look, or the sponge for fuller coverage.
Then dab on and blend in the Unlimited Stretchable Lasting Concealer anywhere you need — under the eyes, on blemishes, or over redness and pigmentation. This full coverage concealer stays put and looks natural on skin.
To complete your flawless complexion, sweep on shu uemura’s Unlimited Loose Powder; it goes on transparent, has a matte finish and sets your base makeup beautifully.

The Rouge Unlimited Kinu Cream lipstick and Kinu Matte lipstick look and feel incredible on the lips. These are both part of shu uemura’s Lunar New Year limited edition collection, and we love that the colours stay on and last all day.
For brows, there’s the Brow Sword Naginata Eyebrow Pencil that stays sharp and draws the perfect eyebrow line each time. And for the eyes, line them with the Unlimited 3D Gel Pencil in Sound Black; this is a matte, waterproof formula that doesn’t smudge or budge once you draw it on.

When you’re done with your makeup and you really want it to stay looking fresh and in place, use a setting mist. The unlimited lasting makeup fix mist sets makeup and hydrates the skin as well; it creates a thin lasting film that feels lightweight, and it won’t affect the makeup finish.
Then at the end of the night when it’s time to cleanse the face, you can’t get any better than shu uemura’s iconic cleansing oil. It’s extremely effective in removing even the most stubborn waterproof makeup, and it does so gently without stripping the skin of moisture. Your skin will feel clean and smooth once you’re done.
