Beauty secrets: Julie Tan

The Malaysian actress, who is based in Singapore, is a rising star to watch.

1. What is the one product you would not step out of the house without?

The Mythic Oil Color Glow Serum. It protects my hair from the sun with UV filters and prevents my hair from getting frizzy in humid weather.

2. What is your must-have grooming session?

A visit to Dexter Ng at Next salon. He always has wild ideas on how to style my hair while making sure it complements my skin and face shape.

Different hairstyles make me feel like a different person.As an artiste, I need a different cut and style to suit the characters that I play.

For example, in Gonna Make It, I requested for purple hair ends with a daring bob to make me feel edgy and strong, which suits my character in the series.

In addition, a good hair treatment and pampering session in the salon gives me soft and smooth tresses, so I feel confident.

3. In your opinion, which is the best beauty invention ever?

The L'Oreal Professionnel Majirel Majicontrast hair dye.

My hair can be coloured a rich magenta red without any bleaching. It also smoothens and adds shine to my hair.

4. What was the most ridiculous thing you have ever done in the name of beauty?

I started going for facials at the age of 12.

5. Share a beauty tip with us.

End each day with a mask. It will give your face a glow the next day.

I like to use a home-made mask blended with avocados and oats, as the mixture helps to hydrate and whiten my skin.
