In The Bag – Cheryl Ow/Makeup Artist

What products are in your makeup bag right now?

Dior Compact Powder

Make Up Forever Red and Nude Lipstick
Smoky Lash Mascara
Matte off white eyeshadow
Aqua Eyeliner
Nars blusher
Bigelow Lemon and Pomegranate Lip Cream
Travel sized blusher
Eyeshadow brush

Why do you use those particular products and do you have a particular philosophy or routine?
To be honest, most of the time I don’t even touch my pouch when I’m out, my make up stays put and its very seldom I need to do touch up unless I’m wearing lipgloss. I still carry it around simply because you never know when you suddenly have an invite to something nice and if you need to add more colour for blah days .
It’s more of an emergency pouch that’s why only the basics ar
e in there. The powder has good enough coverage even though it’s just a compact powder, the red lipstick is great for instant glam, the off white shadow is great for the brow bone to freshen up tired looking eyes and doubles up as a subtle highlighter for cheekbones and nose bridge. The blusher I love because there are sparkles in it, nice touch if I’m going out at night after work.
How often do you change what’s in your makeup bag?
When an item runs out.
Is there a product you can’t live without and regularly re-buy?
Smoky Lash Mascara from Make Up Forever.

What is the story behind the bag you use? Where did you get it and why do you like it?
It’s a cheap and cheerful bag that I got from a market, I love the way it opens up for easy access and of course for the colour and stars!

Cheryl is freelance makeup artist based in Singapore. She believes any woman that says she doesn’t need make up ought to be shot!
