Hera Youth Activating Serum, $120
It is pretty safe to say that Korean beauty is synonymous to high tech formulations. One to note is this serum from beauty giant Hera. It not only treats visible signs of ageing such as lines and wrinkles, but also prevents it by repairing and rebooting damaged cells caused by environmental stressors. Pyruvate, which occurs naturally in our skin and bodies, is used in the formula to boost bioenergy of skin cells to increase cell activation, slowing down skin ageing. It works with a patented Abcell and Cell-Bio Fluid Sync, which aids in maximising the effects of Pyruvate to recharge, rebuild and strengthen skin cells. Dior Lip Glow Oil, $50
A non-sticky lip oil that hydrates, offers a luminous shine and provides a wash of colour to the puckers. This can be used on its own for a natural look or as a topper for a plump pout. It also contains a Colour Reviver technology that reacts with your lips to give a colour which is unique only to you. Cherry oil then nourishes and protects lips from harsh environmental aggressors. Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte's Magic Serum Crystal Elixir, $170
A serum that brightens, hydrates, strengthens skin’s resilience and even treats signs of ageing? Consider us sold. This is fortified with the brand’s Tilbury Magic 8 Complex, which works alongside a slew of ingredients such as a Holistic 5-Crystal Complex, peptides, vitamin C and polyglutamic acid, which is said to be four times more hydrating than hyaluronic acid. The combination of such superior ingredients help to deliver constant moisture, plump up lines, firm up loose skin and boost luminosity for a healthier-looking complexion.   Urban Decay Inked Brow Eyebrow Gel, $42
For a fuss-free brow product, this is one to note. It comes with a water-, smudge- and sweat-proof formula that reportedly does not fade or budge. Its sharp and angled applicator also allows for an easy application, ideal for both makeup beginners and pros. Nars Orgasm X Cheek Palette, $75
This cheek palette comes with two blushers and one highlighter that are formulated to blend easily onto the high points of your face for a fuss-free makeup application. These universally-flattering shades give a gorgeous glow to the skin thanks to its gold pearls and shimmer that are infused into the product. Tatcha The Liquid Silk Canvas Face Primer, $79
This oil-free primer features a lightweight formula that sits comfortably on the skin to not only prolong makeup wear, but also helps to minimise the look of enlarged pores and protects the skin from harmful pollutants. Green tea, rice and algae extracts also offer anti-ageing benefits while pink and gold pearls illuminate and brighten the complexion. Dear Dahlia Blooming Edition Skin Paradise Soft Focus Shine Control Powder, $58
Besides its IG-worthy packaging, this pressed mineral powder helps to set your makeup and control excess sebum production for a fresh-looking complexion all day. This also ensures that makeup stays budge-proof so you don’t have to worry about your makeup transferring onto your mask whenever you’re out and about. IGK Offline 3-Minute Hydration Hair Mask, $58
If applying a 10-minute hair mask takes too much of your time, opt for one that deeply nourishes in just under five minutes. This quick hair treatment is formulated with turmeric butter and green tea seed oil to intensely hydrate and protect tresses from future damage caused by environmental aggressors. It also helps to smooth out hair fibres for frizz-free locks while imparting a glossy shine.
