Makeup Artist: Ng Huimin

Her go-to lipsticks:

#1: Laneige Intense Lip Gel, $36

"The colour is vibrant, and the finish is super-glossy - almost like you'd just applied gel nail polish on your lips."

Available at #B3-66A Ion Orchard (6509-8872)

#2: Kose Esprique Rouge Stay Magic (Essence Liquid), $30

"Most moisturising lippies tend to be too sheer. However, this is very moisturising on the lips and yet gives strong, vivid colour."

#3: M.A.C Matte Lipstick, $31

"This is my personal favourite - it glides on so easily, and makes your lips look subtly sexy."

Makeup Artist: Larry Yeo

His go-to lipsticks:

#1: NYX Whipped Lip and Cheek Souffle, $13
