Joyce Tang, Finance Manager of Estée Lauder, on current beauty must-haves
Wearing a little make-up is an easy way to help
you look more energetic and feeling refreshed.
For many, achieving a completed look may be too
time consuming and usually results in having to
rush out the door. But if you have the right tools,
it can be really easy. For me, a BB-cream cushion
and a nice lipstick are a great help. I recommend
the Estée Lauder Double Wear Cushion BB
because it is light, easy to blend and lasts all day.
It is also comfortable to wear and helps brighten
up your face with no touch-ups needed.
Additionally, it features a moisture-infused
formula that helps cover your pores, fine
lines and any imperfections. It doesn’t
leave you feeling dry, and it’s such a light
foundation that you don’t even feel it. Did I
mention it also has SPF50?
I also recommend lipsticks from Tom Ford.
They’re moist, so you don’t need to apply any lip
balm on top, and have a smooth texture like silk.
They’re made using organic ingredients like soja
seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and
chamomilla f lower oil, which helps make ap-
plication incredibly smooth. The lipsticks are also
available in mini size, which is really convenient
for people who want to carry more colours with-
out needing a larger cosmetics bag.
