8 beauty tips from Estee Lauder make-up artist Bobby Wang

The Singapore-based make-up expert from Shanghai has been with Estee Lauder since 2013.

The bachelor created make-up looks for New York Fashion Week in 2012 and 2013. He has worked with magazines such as Vogue China, Cosmopolitan Malaysia and Elle China.

1. ALWAYS USE EYE MAKE-UP REMOVER TO REMOVE MASCARA

Failing to do so leaves stains that can make you look tired and unhealthy. In the long term, the stains could become permanent.

2. DO NOT CLEANSE YOUR SKIN MORE THAN THREE TIMES A DAY

Excessive washing strips away the skin's natural protective barrier and makes it more dehydrated, causing the skin to produce more oil.

3. EXFOLIATE YOUR LIPS

This applies to men as well. Keep lips smooth by exfoliating up to twice a week with a lip scrub and applying a layer of lip balm after to moisturise the skin.

4. USE A CUSHION COMPACT FOR TOUCH-UPS

Using a cushion compact, rather than a powder compact, for touch-ups provides a smoother look. Foundation will not appear cakey even after multiple touch-ups.

5. DRINK MORE WATER

Drinking six to eight glasses of water a day is important and beneficial for your skin.

6. MATCH BLUSH TO LIPS

To pick the perfect everyday cheek colour, choose a shade that matches your natural lip colour. You can never go wrong.

7. SCRUB FOR A SMOOTH SHAVE

Men should exfoliate their skin at least once a week. Removing dead skin cells will help prevent bristles on the jawline and reduce chances of getting cuts.

8. DON'T USE OLD MAKE-UP

Old make-up could contain bacteria. Check expiry dates and throw away make-up that smells or looks different from when you bought it.
