Chocolate and makeup, how can you resist it?

Available in two delicious flavours – Original and Strawberry Tiramisu – the new ETUDE HOUSE Play Color Eyes Mini Kit features six delectable shades that are all shaped into mini chocolate bars, which make it look almost good enough to eat.

As if things can’t get even cuter, ETUDE HOUSE has cleverly named each of the shades after a particular ingredient of the chocolate snack – think Sweet Vanilla Choco, Mascarpone Cheese, Melting Cocoa Butter and more. We sure hope it smells just as delicious as it looks!

To further sweeten the deal, you can also choose to get the special set which consists of the eyeshadow palette, a cute Kit Kat pouch and a bar of Kit Kat original chocolate. While the palettes are already available in Korea starting today, we think it’s only a matter of time before it hits local retail stores so keep your eyes peeled!

4 Statement Makeup Looks For Girls Who Wear Glasses

11 Jan 2019 by Chew Hui Ling

Just because you’re the only frame-wearing chick in the homeroom, doesn’t mean you have to stick to boring makeup. Amp up your specs appeal with these geek-chic beauty looks!



It’s the start of a brand new year and it’s the perfect time to experiment with bolder makeup styles. Take a cue from beauty influencer Cloe, who added a dash of fun to her look with a bright-eyed flutter. To really make her peepers pop, she went with sparkly lashes for extra bling and a wash of peachy eyeshadow all over her eye area. Talk about eye-catching!

Tip: If your lashes are always hitting your lenses, use an eyelash curler to curl your lashes upwards from the roots before setting it with a voluminous mascara.

Get the look:

IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara Confetti Popper, $20
Mamonde Brightening Cover Watery Cushion, $32
NYX Sugar Trip Squad Eyeshadow Palette, $36
3CE Mood Recipe Face Blush in Mono Pink, $26
Ciaté London Mermaid Glow Illuminating Rainbow Highlighter, $48

Vamp up your routine with makeup artist Arielle’s modern take on the ’90s-inspired grunge look – think porcelain skin, jet-black liner and pillowy brown lips a la Kylie Jenner. Pop on some statement glasses and you’ll look like you stepped straight out of an old-school gothic novel (but even cooler).

Tip: Wearing spectacles tend to create emphasis on your undereye circles, so be sure to cover up any discolourations with a concealer.

Get the look:

Cover FX Power Play Concealer, $43
The BrowGal Instatint Tinted Eyebrow Gel, $35
Kat Von D Ink Well Long-Wear Matte Eyeliner, $32
NYX Ombre Blush in Mauve Me, $21
Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint in Unveil, $36

Pastel Dream


If you’re going for a pair of silver frames, why not coordinate the look with this gorgeous lilac look by social media It girl Nyané? A softer alternative to the Pantone-approved ultra violet, this universally-flattering shade is easy to pull off and looks great on all skin tones. To add a bit of glow, dab on some shimmer on the lids and a smidge of highlighter on the tip of your nose.

Tip: Pastels tend to look muted when worn alone. The trick is to use eyeshadows that pack a lot of pigment and have a buildable formula so you can layer on for a stronger colour effect.

Get the look:

TOO FACED Born This Way Foundation, $61
K-Palette Real Strong Eyeliner, $21.90
Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Ultra Violet, $42
NARS Single Eye Shadow Shimmer Finish in Earthshine, $33
NYX Suede Matte Lipstick in Violet Smoke, $16
ETUDE HOUSE Play 101 Stick Contour Duo, $24

Party Red-Y


Be loud and proud with a punchy makeup look, just like beauty YouTuber Alice! To achieve her colourful winged liner look, sweep on a rosy eyeshadow followed by a thin flick of fuchsia eyeliner on the outer corners of your eye. Slap on a tantalising red smacker and some statement accessories as the finishing touches – and you’re ready to party!

Tip: Well-groomed brows help to frame your eyes (and glasses) while highlighting your features, so don’t forget to fill in your arches!

Get the look: 

TOO FACED Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Perfecting Primer, $22
innisfree My To Go Cushion, $38
Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil, $44
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Woodstock, $33
TOO FACED Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush in So Peachy, $42
Ciaté London Pretty Stix in Chick Flick, $30
