After lockdown restrictions eased up a little bit, I realized that I had been on a (forced!) no-buy for the past 5 months, quietly using up my skincare stockpile. It also occurred to me that, when the time came to start using makeup again, my habits would probably change. When there are no big events to go to in the foreseeable future, I think I can get used to lighter, luminous makeup. So it made sense for me to invest in a skincare makeup base like the Missha Glow Skin Balm (PHP780 for 50ml on Althea Korea).
