Best day, ever

All things must come to pass. Even good ones, as much as we loathe to admit it. Such is the case with Buro. Beauty Day, which happened just two days ago. Every beauty fanatic's ultimate playground, it was a full day programme consisting meet-the-founders, skincare training sessions, makeup artistry workshops, and casual chit-chats with beauty product formulators and inventors. In case you missed it (aw), here's what went down:

11 — 11:30AM –– Sunscreen 101 & Blue Light with founder of Supergoop!, Holly Thaggard

Is there anyone that knows better about SPF than Holly Thaggard? We doubt it. The self-proclaimed sunscreen queen debunked skin-related myths aplenty during the half an hour session, from the efficacy of spray on SPF-containing mists to the necessity of slathering up indoors. We also got the scoop on the brand's latest product, the Glowscreen Primer, which promises to keep your makeup on through Singapore's dastardly heat all while granting an ethereal glow to your mien. Due to an overwhelming influx of questions, we didn't quite get to everyone's queries — but rest assured, we have compiled all your burning quesions and will get Holly to answer them via e-mail. Expect a separate article on that, coming soon. We will also announce the three lucky winners of Supergoop!' Unscreen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 then!


12 — 12:30PM –– Lunchtime with the Buro. Beauty Team and Saffron Sharpe

How about a side of skincare with your salad? The Buro. Beauty Team was joined by Saffron Sharpe, our favourite candid girl from the popular millennial Youtube reality talkshow series, Real Talk, during lunch hour. We talked beauty regimens, in-flight masking routines, and debated the merits of retinol all while sharing the contents of our (bulging) makeup bags. Quality entertainment, indeed.


2 — 2:30PM –– Managing Oily Skin with Caudalie's skincare trainer, Erika Saenz

Living on our sunny shores means dealing with sweat and grease is expected — even more so if you have naturally oily skin. That's where Caudalie's regional sales and education manager for Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, Erika Saenz, comes in. We got her and local beauty influencer, Winter Chee, to join us for a  half-hour window where they shared their expertise on pores, clogged skin, and the wonders of Caudlie's three-step Vinopure range. As with Supergoop!, we have compiled all your burning quesions in a separate article, so you can look forward to see the rest of 'em queries answered then. Watch this space!

4 — 4:30PM –– What the Hair with Lush's haircare lead and inventor, Daniel Campbell

Getting lush locks is made easy with... Lush. We'll let you sit with that cheesiness for a minute. Jokes aside, it was an engaging workshop with haircare inventor, Daniel Campbell, who addressed common Singaporean haircare woes in the vein oily scalps, brittle ends, and dandruff. Hair buffs were also introduced to the big wide world of solid shampoo bars (say what?) and treatment tips aplenty. We definitely overran in terms of timing for this session, so there will be a separate article on the rest of the Q&A portion. Not forgetting, of course, the lucky 5 winners of the Lush haircare kit, who will also be revealed in the same article.

And that concludes this year's Buro. Beauty Day festivities. Until next time, guys.
