Makeup Tips You Should Know to Transform Yourself Into a Singaporean Beauty

You know what would make life a little bit more fun? A vacation to Singapore. The city-state has a tropical climate year-round and is home to some of the world’s most beautiful women. They have plenty of ethnic minorities who are rich, famous, or just really nice. You don’t have to be Chinese, Indian, Tamil, Javanese, Malay or Arab to enjoy living here — many people find it an exotic and fascinating place to live. 

Singapore’s beauty industry is booming and the best way to take advantage of all this talent is by investing in your beauty. There are so many salons here that you won’t need any guidebooks or books on how to achieve a flawless look to get your makeover on. In this blog post, Brow Sugar will share some tips that will help you transform yourself into a Singaporean Beauty.

Ditch the foundation and wear makeup for everyday life

While foundation is a must for any beauty routine, you should avoid using it for everyday life. Wearing makeup everyday can be really drying, it can make your skin look cakey, and it can be really hard to wash off in the morning. Instead of foundation, try wearing eye shadows or eyelids without mascara. They’re less drying and will leave your eyes looking more natural.

Try not to wash your face for at least an hour

Many people think that washing their face for at least an hour before heading to sleep is the solution to all their problems. However, experts recommend that you avoid washing your face for at least an hour before bed.

This is to help your skin repair from the stress of the day and to allow your skin to get a chance to “blend” with itself while sleeping. It’s also believed that drinking a rich, foaming, naturally-coloured, fermented tea called kombucha before you go to bed can help promote good skin health.

Don’t forget to exfoliate

Just like in our bodies, our skin needs stimulation to keep it healthy. Exfoliation is the act of rubbing a mild scrub or exfoliating surface (like the back of your hand) against your skin to release its natural oils. In theory, this should help unclog your pores and cleanse your skin better than a gentle cleanser would.

While there are numerous ways to choose from, most experts recommend that you select a cleanser that is gentle on your skin’s surface. Exfoliation can be done before stepping in the shower or the bath, after your workout, or even during your breakfast routine. It’s important to remember that exfoliating your skin 2-3 times a week will keep it hydrated and help it gain a better complexion.

Go bare-faced after a shower

While wearing makeup when you go to the bathroom is always a good idea, you shouldn’t do so every single day. While going bare-faced is certainly an option when you want to be coy or just want to look a little slick, doing so after a shower is actually believed to be more hydrating for the skin.

When you’re finished washing your face, use a face towel to dry off. Once your face is dry, massage your skin with a body butter or body balm. Doing so will help your skin retain its softness while absorbing excess water.

Eat healthy and exercise to look good

When you’re in Singapore you should definitely eat healthy both because it’s good for you and because it makes you feel good. You should also exercise regularly to keep your body fit and healthy. The key here is moderation. You shouldn’t put so much pressure on yourself that you binge on healthy food or workout non-stop. You should also remember to take your vitamins and drink plenty of water.

Have fun while you’re here and don’t take yourself too seriously

If you’ve been spending a lot of time in Singapore, it’s likely you’ve gotten involved in some type of competitive, competitive-looking behaviour. Whether it’s in your work life, social life or sports, competitive behaviours are often frowned upon in a foreign country.

If you want to be treated as a celebrity here, it’s important to remember that you’re not competing with anyone in particular. You’re competing with yourself and the idea is to have fun while you can!
