Zahirah MacWilson’s Natural Glow Beauty Secrets

Focus on Cleansing

Zahirah is conscientious with cleansing. When she’s wearing heavy makeup, starts her cleansing routine with a face wipe, followed by a micellar water cleanser, then she’ll continue with double cleansing using cleansing oil and cleansing foam.

Even when she’s wearing lighter makeup, she would still make sure her cleansing is done thoroughly, in order to remove all the makeup, dirt, and sweat. Keeping her face clean and fresh is her secret to healthy skin.

Don’t Dry Your Face After Cleansing

Zahirah also said that she never dries her face after cleansing. She will put on toner on her wet face after the cleansing, so that active ingredients can penetrate better. This improves her skin’s hydration so that she can achieve the natural glowing look.

Zahirah MacWilson’s Favourite Beauty Products

Anua Heartleaf Pore Control Cleansing Oil



In her TikTok post about her night skincare routine, Zahirah said she does not like to wear waterproof mascara and false lashes because it is very tricky to clean the black residue around her eye area. But when she has to, she would use the Anua Heartleaf Pore Control Cleansing Oil as one of the double-cleansing steps in her skincare routine, to make sure that the black residue can be removed.

Besides removing makeup efficiently, this cleansing oil also reduces redness and irritation. Containing plant extracts such as turmeric and heartleaf, this product soothes and brightens the skin.

Anua Heartleaf Pore Control Cleansing Oil retails for RM72.90 on Watsons.

Anua Heartleaf Quercetinol Pore Deep Cleansing Foam

Zahirah likes to try out new skincare products since she is always looking to improve her skin and experimenting combinations of new products in her beauty routine.

She became interested in Anua products because she saw positive reviews from TikTok. She recommends Anua Heartleaf Quercetinol Pore Deep Cleansing Foam because it contains heartleaf powder for removing sebum and exfoliating dead skin. It calms the sensitive skin too!

Anua Heartleaf Quercetinol Pore Deep Cleansing Foam retails for RM69.00 on Lazada.

Laneige Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Moisture Cream

This hydrating water-based moisturiser is Zahirah’s current favourite. It is lightweight and very suitable for Malaysia’s hot and humid weather.

The main highlighted ingredients in this moisturiser are blue hyaluronic acid to deliver long-lasting hydration, as well as squalane and ceramide, which nourish the skin. Blue hyaluronic acid is fermented with deep sea algae and is put through a 10-step microfiltration process. It’s micro-sized to absorb better and faster for intense, lasting hydration, making it an excellent choice even for people with sensitive skin types.

Laneige Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Moisture Cream retails for RM180.00 on Laneige.

Fresh Sugar Recovery Lip Mask Advanced Therapy

A lip mask is important to achieve natural pouty lips. Fresh Sugar Recovery Lip Mask Advanced Therapy is an overnight lip mask that is thick but nicely protective of your lips. It is enriched with sugar and nourishing shea butter that has become Zahirah’s favourite in her beauty routine. The lip mask has a buttery smooth texture that will give long-lasting hydration and helps soften the lips.

Fresh Sugar Recovery Lip Mask Advanced Therapy retails for RM 130.00 on Sephora.

Skintific Cover All Perfect Cushion SPF35 PA++++ 01 Vanilla

This TikTok-viral cushion is well known in Malaysia and it contains SPF to protect our skin from the sun. It’s a lightweight cushion foundation and the coverage is from medium to full coverage depending on your skin condition. Zahirah said that it lasts all day on her face and is easy to carry around since the compact size is very user-friendly. It is non-cakey and delivers a glowing finish.

Extra tips from Zahirah: she revealed that she is using the darkest shade from this product for contouring! It creates a natural healthy glow look since the contour is not too obvious on the face.

Skintific Cover All Perfect Cushion SPF35 PA++++ 01 Vanilla retails for RM 69.00 on Guardian.

Mixy Superlash Mascara


Zahirah is not just an actress, but she is also the girl-boss for a new beauty brand called Mixy! They’ve just launched their water-resistant mascara this year, which is a great option for Muslim women in Malaysia as we need to remove all the makeup before we perform our prayers.

The feedback from the customers has been positive, with many of them recommending this amazing product. Besides having bristles that lengthen your eyelashes, this mascara is also water-resistant and smudge-proof.
