Sophie’s Guide to Lasting Summer Glow

Step 1. Start off with a vitamin C mask for a radiance boost. Use your fingers to warm up the product and spread evenly onto the face and neck. Let it sit for 20 minutes before you wash it off. Sophie’s mask pick? The Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask (SGD95).

Step 2. Spray your face generously with a fine toning mist, like Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir (SGD77).

Step 5. Then, move on to serum. Squeeze a few drops into your palm and massage it onto the face.Sophie’s current fave is The Ordinary’s Buffet + Copper Peptides 1% (SGD40.25).

Step 6. For eye cream, dot the product over the eyelids and gently dab with your ring fingers.

Step 8. Indulge yourself with a facial massage. Sophie suggests focusing more on the cheekbones, swiping in an upwards motion for a more sculpted look.

Step 9. Finish off your skincare with moisturizer and sunscreen.

Step 11. Fill in the brows with a pencil; remember that a little product goes a long way! Then, brush through with a brow gel to ensure the brows hairs stay in place.

Step 12. Dot some concealer on any areas of concern.

Step 13. Contour with Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Bronzer (SGD86). Apply some blush and blend out with your fingers; Sophie suggests applying the same colour on the eyes for a quick and easy wash of colour.
