For a beauty junkie, our relationship with skincare and makeup is very much like a love affair. And you know this is true when you realise this relationship is best described in love songs.

1. How Long Will I Love You by Ellie Goulding
The first few nights of using a new moisturiser and waking up to perfectly hydrated skin… but not sure if some time down the road it is going to work as well as it does now.
“How long will I love you?
As long as stars are above you
And longer if I can”
2. Apologise by OneRepublic
Finding that old bottle of foundation before you got a tan from your beach vacation, and giving it another shot. Maybe, just maybe, my tan has faded!
“I’d take another chance,
Take a fall, take a shot for you.
I need you like a heart needs a beat,
But it’s nothin’ new, yeah!”
3. Photograph by Ed Sheeran
Discovering all the products that work on your face best, and having the indescribable urge to take multiple selfies to immortalise the moment just to remind yourself in the future that you once looked so good.
“We keep this love in this photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Our hears were never broken
Times forever frozen still”
4. Money on my Mind by Sam Smith
$70 for a bottle of 150ml liquid foundation? NO PROBLEM, money is the last thing on my mind if it lasts in this humid Singapore weather without smudging!
“I don’t have
Money on my mind
Money on my mind
I do it for
I do it for the love”
5. Waiting for Love by Avicii
When you get convinced to try another product, but realised it doesn’t work as well as your previous one. Tragedy strikes when you try looking for your previous product, but realised it has already stopped production.
“We are one of a kind irreplaceable
How did I get so blind and so cynical
If there’s love in this life we’re unstoppable
No we can’t be defeated”
6. Latch by Sam Smith
That initial euphoria when you find something that works…
“Latching on to you (I am latching on to you)
I won’t let go of you (never) (No, I won’t let go)
Latching on to you (How you wanna get down)
I won’t let go of you (I won’t let go, I won’t let go)”
7. I got you (I feel good) by James Brown
Remember that tube of hand cream your friend’s girlfriend’s cousin bought cheaply for a gift exchange during Christmas last year? You thought it would never work, but it DID, and it feels awesome!
“Wo! I feel good, I knew that I wouldn’t
I feel good, I knew that I wouldn’t
So good, so good, I got you”
8. Boom Clap by Charli XCX
On a terrible day, putting on a fresh face of makeup boosts your confidence and energy to deal with the darkness of the world.
“No silver or no gold
could dress me up as good
You’re the glitter in the darkness of the world”
9. Stay by Rihanna
Your relationship with your favourite lipstick. God, please let it never be discontinued!
“Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay”
10. Incredible by Celine Dion ft. Ne-Yo
Being a self-professed beauty junkie also means your friends hold you to high standards. And we promise to deliver.
“Whole world is watching us now
It’s a little intimidating
But since there’s no way to calm down
Let’s give them some amazing”
