It’s similar to armour, a shield we wear to protect us from the bad days and daily challenges that life throws at us. And even through this current global health crisis marked by lockdowns, social distancing and mask-wearing, women haven’t given up on their beauty needs, with cosmetics (and skincare) intrinsically linked to self-care. Here, Teviant founder and celebrity makeup artist Albert Kurniawan shares tips on how to pump up your confidence with small indulgences such as premium lipsticks and eye makeup.

It’s said that makeup boosts confidence. How has your own experience with makeup been like?
