Let’s just say we’re pretty disappointed she didn’t get a picture of her hubby trying it out

We’ll just put it out there first - actress-model Hannah Quinlivan, who was in town on Friday (Oct 25) to celebrate the brand new Yves Saint Laurent Beaute flagship store at ION Orchard, is gorgeous. 

Though Hannah’s appearance at YSL’s pop-up event was brief (she was only on stage for a quick 5 minute chat with the host, actress Constance Lau, before being whisked away for group interviews with the media), fans were nonetheless excited to be able to catch a glimpse of the actress-model, who dressed to impress in a sleek black dress.

To their delight, Hannah also hinted that she’ll be appearing in a reality show next year, though details of the programme could not be shared just yet. 

During our brief chat with the 26-year-old, she dropped little nuggets of information about her beauty regimen, as well as more details on how she once tried to get her husband, Mandopop star and multi-hyphenate Jay Chou, to start taking care of his skin (more on that later).

But first of all, how does Hannah maintain her flawless complexion? The mother-of-two readily admitted that her daily beauty regimen has shortened significantly since welcoming daughter Hathaway, 4, and son Romeo, 2, into the world.

“It’s become really simple! It used to be half an hour [long], but now, it’s just 10 minutes at the most,” Hannah shared, though we reckon the little tip she offered up when asked about a "unique beauty habit” of hers has helped significantly in whittling down her daily skincare routine.

“I used to do a lot of moisturising for my face, but now, there are times where I’d have to force my kids to drink water, and I’ll drink water too, as a different way of making yourself moisturised,” she shared.

Now that’s one time-saving and healthy tip we can all get behind.

(Continued on next slide: So, what was that one beauty fad Jay “hated" so much?)

Hannah’s husband Jay Chou has a favourite saying when it comes to ensuring all is well on the home front - “happy wife, happy life”. 

However, that doesn’t seem to apply to trying out new beauty fads and products.

The actress-model shared that Jay isn’t that into skincare, not even the basics like moisturising his face.

“You know, men, they don’t really like to put stuff on their face, (so I’d force him to use) some moisturiser, but I'll just do it for fun, I don’t really wanna force him, so I’ll just be like, 'oh hey',  and I’ll slap some on him,” she shared.

So, with Jay’s “aversion" to slathering creams on his face, we guess it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that he, naturally, is not into masking as well.

"I've always wanted to try to force him to use masks, like those sheet masks with the animal faces (printed on it),” Hannah replied, when asked if there was anything new she’d like her husband to try.

"l thought that it would be really funny, and I really wanted him to do it. He did put it on (for a bit), but he took it off straight away,” she recalled, adding that Jay just didn’t like the feeling of having a mask on his face.

Her 4-year-old daughter, however, is beginning to take an interest in all things beauty. 

"She likes to put on my lipstick," Hannah laughed, when asked if little Hathaway has ever shown any interest in her makeup.

"Lipstick is something where you can really see the colour clearly, so she likes to put it on her face. It was really funny, sometimes a little bizarre," she continued.

No chilli crab for Hannah Quinlivan.

The actress-model shared that her favourite eats in Singapore include butter crab, as well as bak kut teh. Wonder if she managed to squeeze in a visit to Jay's favourite bak kut teh shop.
