There’s no better time to get into a party mood than during the festive holiday season. Whether you’ll be flying to a beach destination or exploring another city, you can expect a party happening just around the corner. Since you’re travelling and not just having a regular night out, we’re sure you’ll want to take some snaps and look good in it. But we all know that hours of partying can make our makeup melt and our skin less than radiant. The good news is, with the right beauty products you can prevent those from happening. Pack these beauty goodies so you can look glam till the after-party.
For beach parties in Phuket
Sulwhasoo Evenfair Perfecting Cushion No.21 SPF 50+ PA+++, USD47.29 (ourshop.com)
It’s a given that you should always wear sunscreen during the day especially if you’re gonna spend some time under the sun. But when it comes to beach parties in tropical countries like Thailand, we can understand that piling on sunscreen every three to four hours can be quite a hassle and uncomfortable for your skin. As an alternative, you can touch up your sunscreen using a long-lasting, hydrating cushion foundation with adequate SPF.
For club hopping in Shanghai
CLIO Kill Cover Liquid Concealer, USD17 (clubclio-en.com)
Shanghai’s nightlife is as dynamic as the city itself, so it’s highly recommended to go club hopping instead of just staying at one place to fully experience the vibrant local atmosphere. Some of the most popular spots in town are Bar Rouge and M1NT among others. Before you start partying, make sure to use a creamy, long-lasting concealer that will keep you covered all through the night. You can also bring it with you for quick touch-ups.
For attending the snow festival in Sapporo
Philosophy Hydrating & Refining Face and Eye Duo, USD37.23 (ourshop.com)
It takes more than just using reliable makeup products to party-proof your look, you also need to have a good skincare prep. Toning and moisturising are especially crucial when visiting a place during the winter. If you plan on partaking in the upcoming famed snow festival in Sapporo, you have to be diligent in keeping your skin hydrated to avoid developing dry, flaky skin.
For chilling at rooftop bars in Singapore
Peripera Blur Pang Milk Blur Primer SPF30 PA++ 50ml – Banana, USD7.04 (ourshop.com)
Not a fan of loud parties? That’s totally cool, you can also have a good time just chilling at a rooftop bar. In Singapore, there are a lot of posh rooftop bars to choose from and all of them boast delicious cocktails so we’re not gonna blame you if go for round two or three. Keep your beauty look on point despite the surge of alcohol by using a tone-up cream primer to prevent redness and calm bloated skin.
For pool parties in Manila
IT Cosmetics Brow Power Waterproof Perfector Pencil, SGD42/~USD30.37 (sephora.sg)
The Philippines is known for its pristine beaches, but if you’re in the capital you also shouldn’t miss stopping by the pool clubs where you can spot some of the country’s up-and-coming celebrities and influencers. If you plan on taking a dip, ensure that you’re using waterproof (not just water resistant) brow makeup to maintain flawless, on-fleek brows.
For beach clubbing at Bali
Peripera Ink Airy Velvet Lip Tint, USD7.04 (ourshop.com)
Fancy a little day drinking while on vacation? There’s no better place to chill and have some afternoon cocktails than at Potato Head Beach Club in Bali. Indulge yourself in a relaxing swim at their infinity pool while you take in the magnificent view of the Bali shore. For this, you’d want to swap your fave lipstick for a tint that will stay put even after a few dips.
