Our reader Desperate For Good Complexion asked:
My foundation tend to oil up and my pores appear very obvious by midday. When I apply more powder over it, it only looks more cakey and my pores emphasised. Do you have tips to touching up without having me remove all my makeup and start all over?
If your makeup creases, adding more powder on top can make it look blotchy. For oily skin, always remember to dab away the excess oil with a tissue or oil-blotting paper. You can also gently even out the creased makeup with your clean fingertip before touching up your makeup.
For a natural finish during touch-up, I recommend the new Laneige Watery Cushion Concealer (SGD35). It provides moisture, gives long-lasting coverage and is even formulated with Arbutin to lighten the appearance of blemishes and dull skin with repeated use.
The new Brush Pact No. 2 Pore Blur (SGD42) is another great tool for convenient on-the-go touch-ups.This has soft brushes that gives a finish that looks professional. The Pore Blur, in particular, is suitable for you, since you mentioned that you find usual powder emphasise the appearance of pores.
Extra tips for you regarding touching up the rest of your makeup, which is likely to fade by midday too:
Instead of removing and reapplying eye shadow, just bring along the Laneige Artplay Waterproof Eyeliner (SGD32)with you. This range of liquid eyeliner comes in six exciting colors. Choose the color you like and reapplying this eye-liner during your touch-up routine will instantly brighten the eyes.
For your lipstick, however, I will recommend that you remove all of it so you can start over after you have touched up your face makeup. Apply a light layer of lip balm if lips feel dry. More tips: For cheeks, rub a dab of Laneige Serum Intense Lipstick (SGD34) on the apples of your cheeks. Simply rub a bit of it gently on your cheeks to create a healthy flush.
