It seems like everyone is obsessed with Korean beauty products these days. But it’s high time another Asian beauty trend gets a little more love. This season, homegrown make-up brands take centre stage as we’re currently coveting Indonesian beauty brands. The best part? All the must-haves are under IDR 200,000 so they won’t break bank! From vegan beauty products to multi-functional lipsticks, read on for some of our favourites.
Emina is a local cosmetics and skincare line that is loved by beauty enthusiasts in Jakarta. We especially adore their kitschy packaging like their limited edition Alice Through The Looking Glass collaboration with Disney. Score BB creams, compacts, lipsticks, and hydrating face masks to keep your beauty look on point.
