Because eyes are the windows to the soul (and the key to a covetable look), right?
There’s nothing that can transform your face more than your eyes (have you seen what an on-point eyeliner application can do?). If your mission is to get mesmerising eyes with fluttery lashes, or your best brows ever, read on: we hit the best salons and beauty stores at CapitaLand Malls for a makeover…
Brows always on fleek
To get your brows on fleek, NYX’s Micro Brow Pencil is a holy grail that we always go back to. But if you busy gals (and guys) don’t wanna fuss around with brow pencils at 8 am in the morning, we suggest getting your brows embroidered – you won’t have to fill in your brows for up to a few years. And to those who have naturally full brows that only require a quick brow shaping sesh, lucky you! For both shaping and embroidery options, we’re looking to brow specialists like iBrow Studio, Browtisan, Highbrow, Milly’s, and Browhaus.
Which brow shape to choose? For the most natural results, simply darken and extend your brows following the natural growth of your hairs. Quick tips: If you’re keen on the trendy makeup sported by Instagram models, try enhancing the arch of your brows for a more distinct look. On the other hand, the Korean-style straight brow flattens out the arch for a look that is said to shave years off your face.
Have allergy-prone or sensitive skin? We definitely recommend getting a patch test done before committing to embroidery, to check that your skin doesn’t react negatively to the ink. A proper test involves trying out a patch of dye on your skin for a few minutes, then removing and waiting for a period of time to see if your skin has any reaction. (Browtisan offers this service.)
We’re going fluttery and flirty
Conveniently, the aforementioned salons also provide lash enhancement services. Here are some highlights…
You may have heard that mink lashes are soft and fluttery, but in the interest of ethical beauty, we say go faux. Head to Highbrow for fabulous faux mink extensions that will enhance your eyes like no other!
If you were born with lighter hair, you might be loading on mascara everyday to darken those lashes. Skip that step with a lash tinting session (Lashgraphy) at Browhaus, which makes your lashes darker for up to three weeks. Plus, there’s also a lash curling service (Lash Curl-Up) that keeps even the most stubborn lashes curled.
Ever wanted to feel like a movie star? Part of that look seems to be impossibly long and dramatic lashes, which you can now get with Browtisan’s Celebrity Lash extensions. If you’re in the short-and-straight eyelashes camp, this will be transformative. You won’t even need to put on other makeup with these gorgeous extensions on.
iBrow Studio boasts strand-by-strand lashes (talk about meticulous!), which will make your extensions look as natural as possible while giving them more volume. Think of it as your lashes but better – can’t say no to that!
Milly’s lash lift treatment is a gem: this gives a miraculous curling and darkening effect without using extensions or harmful chemicals. Wake up with perfect – but still super natural – lashes that’ll turn heads wherever you go.
For those who don’t want to commit to the same eye look for years, makeup is the answer. VT Cosmetics has something special in store with its Super Tempting Triple Power Mascara and Glitter Eyeliner. The line is so tempting, in fact, that Kpop heavyweight BTS has given the brand its stamp of approval… heads up to all the Armys! (Though we’re pretty sure hardcore fans would already have the whole collection in their stash.)
Eye care is skincare
LANEIGE’s Eye Sleeping Mask is great for hydrating and de-puffing our tired eyes after a long day of staring at the screen. Each Eye Sleeping Mask comes with ceramic ball applicator that provides instant cooling to soothe the skin and regulate blood circulation around the eyes, for a healthier complexion that promises not to give away the length of your sleep debt!
