Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector, $29
Create the perfect canvas for your makeup with a liquid illuminator like the Becca Skin Shimmering Skin Perfector. You can mix it into your moisturiser or foundation to create that just-got-back-from-yoga glow that perfectly captures the light for a great selfie.
Tip: To look more glowy than the gold bar you'll never receive, you can even mix a drop (or two) of highlighter for added glow.
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation, $72
Created especially for use in front of cameras, even the one on your smartphone, this foundation looks like second skin while blurring any imperfections and blemishes.
Tip: The only thing that should cake during CNY are the cakes you can eat, so to avoid a cakey finish on your face, buff in the foundation so it doesn't just sit on your skin.
Fenty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer, $38
Using this full coverage creamy concealer will ensure you can easily post a #nofilter selfie. The formula goes on smooth to create filtered skin IRL. It’s also long wearing and doesn’t settle into lines or pores.
Tip: Ensure you pick the right shade so you don't end up with two white rings around your eyes in photos taken with flash. You don't want dark rings, but that doesn't mean white rings look cool either.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Silk HD Anti-Aging Micro-Powder, $42
Don’t forget to set your makeup with a powder before you snap that selfie. The It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Silk HD Anti-Aging Micro-Powder is infused with pure silk, vitamin K and collagen to give your makeup a poreless, airbrushed finish so your skin looks flawless in your pictures and irl.
Tip: Keep this handy in your bag (along with a fluffy brush), so the next time your relative says, "Eh, your face so shiny," you can just whip this out and powder your face to show them that you came prepared.
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, $48
Finish your makeup with a setting spray. The Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water can also be used to refresh your makeup throughout the day so it always has a soft-focus finish without looking cakey.
Tip: Bring this along when you go visiting for mid-day pick-me-up. Share with your relatives so you can get more angpows.
