Bare-faced beauty: Jamie Cuaca
by Karen Tee


Managing director of Manolo Blahnik Singapore

If you could have make-up on only one facial feature, which would it be?

My eyes because they are the first things people notice when they look at you. I wear individual lash extensions all the time because they make my eyes larger.

When, if ever, would you step out of the house without make-up?

Every Sunday, when I'm running errands such as grocery shopping or going for my weekly massage at LS Philosophy.

Which facial feature are you most insecure about?

Nothing. I am happy with the way I look.

What are your make-up must-haves?

Mascara from Dramatic Eyes, a drugstore brand from Japan, Diorflash Skin Booster pen, Cle de Peau Beaute loose powder and IPSA make-up base.

What is your secret to beautiful skin?

I do a weekly vitamin C drip with an aesthetic doctor to keep my skin in good condition from inside out. I also apply a facial mask twice daily. I use Sothys' Hydroptimale hydrating mask in the morning and a purifying, oxygen or AHA mask at night.

I have been enjoying the Peter Thomas Oxygen Mask from Sephora recently. I sometimes use the rosewater toner from Italian brand Officina de' Tornabuoni from LS Philosophy to hydrate my skin after cleansing.

Complete this sentence: Beauty is... being myself without worrying about what others think.

Prettiness is subject to various condition:
1. Depend on the cosmetics
2. Depend on plastic surgery
3. Depend on body looks (eg. tall, slim, fair skin, etc)
4. Depend on the eyes of beholder. Every guys has different preference.
So the girls who has both pretty face and good figure are really lucky, cos many are not as luck as them.

Not sure if it's a compliment if I say that frankly, the before and after picture look the same. It may mean that she's naturally pretty, but it also means the make-up doesn't have any effect on her at all.

The most natural=looking and beautiful amongst the lot. I don't see much difference between the two photos and hence, I like the fact that she looks so natural. She can afford to go natural when she's off work as she is beautiful!
