Mention Valentine’s Day and hues of soft pink, blush and red spring to mind. If you still don’t have a makeup look in mind for that big romantic date, why not draw inspiration from these colours? Here are seven items from Hollywood makeup brand Palladio that’ll cover all your bases on Valentine’s Day. They’re super affordable too, so you can splurge on the one person who really matters on this day – your bae.
[New!] Rice Paper Primer, $18.90
Start your routine right with Palladio’s Rice Paper Primer. It has a beige tint to even out your skin tone and blur out any imperfections even before you apply your foundation. Not only that, the lightweight formula also nourishes your skin, while mattifying it at the same time to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores.
Silk FX Eyeshadow (A La Mode), $14.90
With complementary colours for highlighting, contouring, lining and colouring your lids, the Silk FX Eyeshadow palette gives you the flexibility to go as subtle or smokey as you like – perfect for taking your look from day to night! The liquid-to-powder formula also ensures a rich colour payoff, and makes blending a breeze.
Twisted in Love Mascara, $14.90
If the eyes are the windows to your soul, you need to open them up with generous lashings of mascara. Plus, the tip of the mascara wand is actually a heart shape – how apt for Valentine’s Day! There’s a good reason for this unique design – it makes sure that each individual lash is combed and coated with a rich black coat, helping you achieve longer and fuller lashes.
Matte Blush (Bayberry), $8.90
Bring some colour to your cheeks with Palladio’s Matte Blush. Besides giving you a youthful-looking flush, the smooth formula and satin finish also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Not only that – your skin will love the ingredients that went into this blush. There’s apricot kernel and ginseng root, aloe and chamomile extract to condition and protect your skin from damage.
[New!] Rice Paper Pressed Powder (Translucent), $12.90
Don’t forget to set your makeup so your work of art stays on all throughout dinner and after! Made with rice powder, which is known for its oil-absorbing properties, this pressed powder helps to take the shine away from your face, leaving behind a soft, silky finish.
4EVER+EVER Intense Lip Paint (Boundless), $11.90
You don’t have to worry about dry or cracked lips with this liquid lipstick. Its formula is infused with aloe, coconut oil and apricot oil to keep your lips luscious all night long. And just like its name suggests, the 4EVER+EVER Intense Lip Paint is designed to stay on all night without budging – all the better to kiss with!
Rice Paper, $6.90
Singapore’s sweltering weather means you’ll end up perspiring one way or another. Slip this pack of blotting tissues into your bag to clean up facial oil spills on-the-go. Use the matte side of the paper to blot away shine, then flip over to the powdered side for touch-ups. No sweat!
