Golden Hour Glam

Ever heard of the Golden Hour? It’s the magical time just after sunrise or right before sunset when everything is bathed in a golden glow. It’s also known as the best period of the day for capturing stunning photographs due to its soft, flattering light. Now, imagine having that warm glow on your skin all day long! Learn how to create this Golden Hour makeup look with these products readily available at SM Store!

Get started with the base

Coat the lips with a gloss

Top it off with shimmery highlighter

Issy and Co Illuminator in Ray SM Store

Bring out your cheekbones, brow bone, and inner eye corners with this Issy and Co Illuminator. It captures the sun’s radiance, giving you a fresh, dewy glow for that extra touch of Golden Hour Glam.

90s Grunge

Effortlessly nonchalant, moody, and dramatic – these are the defining traits of this look. The grunge makeup look is known for its messy and undone style, using dark and muted colors. It’s about creating an effortlessly edgy appearance, with smudged eyeliner, dark lipstick, and a somewhat disheveled overall look. The key is to embrace imperfections and go for a more rebellious and laid-back vibe.

Grunge it out with an eyeshadow

BYS Eyeshadow Matte 5pc Desert Safari SM Store

After prepping a flawless base, grab a palette with the shades you need. This stunning eyeshadow palette from BYS is one of the best to use to achieve a grunge make-up look.

Go for a spider-leg mascara

BENEFIT - They'Re Real Lengthening Mascara - 8.5 G SM Store

Layers of long eyelashes define this trendy 90’s look. For an extra touch of drama, apply your mascara generously to create a thick, clumpy effect. Achieve this with a buildable formula like this mascara from  Benefit.

Draw on that iconic eyeliner

MAYBELLINE - Line Tattoo Crayon Black - 0.4G SM Store

A heavy, smudged eyeliner is a trademark of the grunge look. Apply it both to the upper and lower lash lines. Oh, and remember precision is not a priority.

Make a statement with chic lips

MAYBELLINE Color Sensational Ultimattes Better Than Luxury Air Plush Matte Lipstick More Rust - 1.7g SM Store

Dark and moody shades, such as deep reds, browns, or even black, are popular choices. Applying it slightly messy or blotchy enhances the grunge aesthetic. Find the perfect lip shade for you at SM Beauty!

Enhance the brows

BLK Cosmetics Daydream 4 tip microblade pen SM Store

Bold and untamed eyebrows took center stage in the 90s, framing the eyes with an effortlessly rebellious charm. This BLK Cosmetics Microblade Pen is your secret weapon to achieving that expressive brow.

Strawberry Makeup

A super cute and easy to recreate look is next on the list. The whole strawberry makeup aesthetic is characterized by pink and red hues on the apples of the cheeks. It is often paired with a natural eye makeup look and glossy pink or mauve lips.

Apply concealer on blemishes and dark circles

YOU Cloud Touch Correcting Concealer Palette 4.8g

For a natural skin look, opt for the YOU Cloud Touch Correcting Concealer Palette. Its four corrective colors offer medium-to-buildable coverage, concealing imperfections without heavy makeup.

Add color to the face

Line your eyes and fill in the brows
