There’s always something innately satisfying about being able to create something from scratch, even if you’re not the craftiest person around. DIY allows one to customise something exactly to their needs, and there are few areas where this ability is more of a bonus than beauty.

Everyone has moments where they believed a certain product could be x amount better if only it had y. Instead of relying on big beauty companies to hopefully make that difference one day (ain’t gonna happen), take the step to make your own. Singapore has a regular roster of DIY beauty workshops that will give you hands-on experience to make anything from your own perfume to soaps, which we’ve listed down below. Convince a friend or two to take part with you and you’ve got a solid plan for a weekend too.
