SEE PHOTOS: Listen up beauty junkies! Singapore’s got plenty to offer for all your makeup and skincare needs. We believe in #supportlocal, so we’ve put together five looks from our favourite Singaporean beauty and skincare brands.
The beauty scene in Singapore is seriously thriving – in the past few years, the industry has exploded with the arrival of more local makeup and skincare brands, which are so good, they rival our favourite international ones. We picked five of our favourite Singaporean beauty brands to feature in a beauty shoot with one of the country’s top models: Diya (@diya_prabhakar). And when you’re done, check out our style spread which celebrates 15 of Singapore’s top fashion brands.
Faux Fayc’s liquid lippies rival Colorpop’s and Kylie Jenner’s
We’ve been enamoured with Faux Fayc since our meeting with them. The brand’s makeup products are on par with those from international brands; take the Fauxstix Liquid Xctasy lippies for example – these have a fantastic colour payoff, aren’t too drying and come in mini sizes so they’ll fit in the tiniest of clutches for your night out.
Skin Inc’s metallic face masks lets you customise your skin pampering
We’ve immense pride in Skin Inc – the Singapore skincare brand is loved by women from all over the world, including New York, Barcelona and Jakarta. Famed for its fuss-free, customisable skincare, Skin Inc lets you personalise your at home facials with its Facial-in-Flash masks. Get the Bento set to customise your masking regime – these are made up of the gold, rose gold and platinum masks which come in halves so you can cater to different skin needs for different parts of your face.
Skin Inc Concept Stores are located at Scotts Square, ION Orchard and VivoCity.
Allies of Skin lets you fake the effects of a good night’s sleep
We still deem Allies of Skin’s founder, Nicolas Travis’s skin as real #skingoals – we’ve yet to meet anyone else with an equally glowing, blemish-free complexion. Pictured on Diya is the All Day Mask: the world’s first leave-on day treatment mask which revives tired skin and supercharges it with antioxidants, peptides (to revitalise skin) and anti-inflammatories. The Bright Future Overnight Facial is another product to add to your skincare wardrobe – it gives skin the effect of a professional facial overnight, as it delivers intense hydration and contains AHAs, Retinol and Probiotics to renew your skin cells while you sleep.

Zahara Cosmetics offers halal cosmetics
Muslim women need to check out Zahara Cosmetics ASAP. This Singaporean makeup brand offers highly pigmented and halal eyeshadow palettes and matte liquid lipsticks. Muslimahs who love nail lacquers also now have the option of having their digits coloured too, thanks to the brand’s oxygen and water vapour permeable nail polish which allows you to leave it on during your wudhu (a pre-prayer cleansing ritual).

Handmade Heroes gives new meaning to feel-good skincare
If you’re a fan of organic skincare, we’d wager that you’ve heard of Handmade Heroes. The Singapore brand has earned cult status among Amazon beauty buyers and has recently expanded to Malaysia. Unlike other brands which only claim to be 100% natural, Handmade Heroes truly is – its products do not contain synthetic chemicals or preservatives. On Diya is the French Green Clay Mask, which minimises pores, brightens redness and draws excess oils from the skin. Bonus points for founder Lynsey’s efforts in working with the disabled.
