The ‘No Make-up’ look is not just a trend. Barely-there beauty is simple and brings out every woman’s natural beauty, perfect for meetings, soirees, and even dinner dates. That is why the Perricone MD’s reformulated ‘No Makeup’ collection is heaven-sent. It delivers a definitive low-key, sheer coverage look that outlasts the summer heat and whatever else the season may throw at us with this unpredictable weather.

One of our best-kept secrets when it comes to defined brows is Hourglass. This brand has innovatively created a brow pencil that combines the benefits of a powder, pencil, and wax to create naturally full and defined brows. The trick lies in its formulated triangular tip allowing the fine edge to define the brow with hair-like strokes whilst the wider edge quickly eliminates sparseness. The Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil is priced at HKD $310 while the Arch Brow Shaping Gel is priced at HKD $320.

Taking the beauty world by storm since it’s debut, Fenty Beauty has officially launched in Hong Kong and we certainly can’t get enough of all the fabulous products. Rihanna was inspired to launch a makeup line so that women of all shapes, sizes, and colors could feel included. The brand focuses on a wide range of traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, creating formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades.
We love the lightweight products and the diversity of options that allows Asians to explore and discover ways to blend products that suit their skin. One product that stands out is the Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color. We are obsessed with the soft matte finish and believe it or not the color is incredible on all skin tones. Another incredible find is the Pro Filt’r Hydrating Primer priced at HKD $268. The lightweight yet moisture-rich face primer that instantly hydrates the skin and is super long lasting. It’s ideal for normal to dry skin types and has become part of our morning routine before stepping out of the house.
