1. Cushion Foundation by April Skin

Cushion foundation is a go-to solution for quick fixes during Hari Raya visits. A compact packaging that carries foundation with sponge applicator, the trend was first started by Korean cosmetic companies and has been adopted by cosmetic giants all over the world. There are many brands that carry the cushion foundation and we love April Skin’s Magic Snow Cushion 2.0. Sleek packaging, great formula for the foundation and affordable, what more can a girl ask for


2. Loose Powder, Eye Shadow Pallette and Setting Spray – Make Up Forever Raya Set

The Raya Make Up Kit #4 by Make Up Forever consists of three makeup essentials; the widely loved Star Lit Eye Shadow Palette (comes with 18 celestial shades with three finishing; matte, glimmering metal & sparkling chrome), Mist & Fix Setting Spray AND Ultra HD Loose Powder. This set of 3-in-1 from one of the world’s best make up brand is guaranteed not to disappoint.


3. Lip Cream by FAME Cosmetics

A good lipstick can instantly bright up a woman’s face. Good thing that FAME came up with its Limited Edition Raya set consisting of 2 shades of lip creams (Scarlet /  Almond) that are suitable for all skin tones, customized pocket mirror and premium Raya money packet, in an exclusive hard box packaging of Fame customized Raya theme. Lipsticks, a compact mirror and Raya money packets? Now that’s a good deal!


4. Compact Hair Brush by Wet Brush

What about your hair? After almost a day of open house-hopping, the freshly-blown hair you spotted in the morning tends to turn limp. Freshen up a bit by brushing your luscious locks with this super cute compact hair brush and you’d be good to go!


5. Mini Perfume by The Voice

Hari Raya is typically spent visiting friends and family and attending open houses. In the warm and humid climate of Malaysia, we tend to sweat a lot and unpleasant body odour might be an issue (God forbid!). To be safe, carry a bottle of mini perfume in your bag. We love the new EDT from The Voice. They come in the Voice’s legendary microphone-shaped bottle and with four fragrances to choose from, you’ll smell delicious everyday!
