In this series, CLEO raided the beauty shelves of three self-confessed beauty junkies. Grace Lim (@gracelsyy), 25, a fashion stylist, walks us through some of her beauty staples.
More from CLEO:
What are some of your fave items on your beauty shelf?
I like using the Avene Eau Thermale Spring Water as a facial mist because it’s hydrating but doesn’t clog my pores. I also love my Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray – it’s very useful on days when I’m shooting so I don’t need to stop for touch-ups too much.
Do you deliberately coordinate your makeup look with your outfit?
What I wear affects how I do my makeup. One big difference is in my choice of lipstick. For example, if I’m wearing an all-black outfit, I’ll put on a dark red lippie. If my outfit is more on the feminine side, I’ll use more orange tones. My fallback is a good pink lipstick.
When you’re styling a fashion shoot, do you plan the makeup look with the outfit as well?
Yes, we’ll come up with a mood board before the shoot. But sometimes we make changes on set as well – it depends on the lighting and whether everything looks OK when put together.
Can you tell us more about your evening skincare routine?
I’ll remove my makeup and double cleanse. That’s followed by toner, eye cream, serum, and moisturiser. I’ll also mask up once or twice a week – I especially love sleeping masks because they’re so convenient!
