Food and shopping in Bangkok are usually the main highlights for travellers who find themselves in this bustling Thai city. For those unfamiliar, there is a niche but popular market for makeup and personal care products in Bangkok too.

Bangkok offers a lot for makeup aficionados, especially if you love trying out new products and playing around with colours. Shopping at these stores is like shopping in heaven—from international to K-beauty brands, as well as local Thai brands that have impressed many beauty fiends.

Price wise, if you’re focusing on trying out makeup lines from Thailand, you can easily do a beauty haul for less than RM100! They’re fairly affordable, or you could set a budget and go from there. Some familiar brands you can get in Malaysia may be cheaper there as well, you’ve just got to keep your eyes peeled!

Again, do not sleep on local Thai makeup brands—go in, swatch them, mix and match them, and get ready to shop to your heart’s content. Plus, it’s not just makeup—contact lenses, lashes, and personal care products are worth checking out as well.

With over 900 brands to choose from, this beauty store in Bangkok must not be missed. There are many Eveandboy outlets across Bangkok, but we’d recommend the Siam Square One outlet for its central location. However, feel free to explore other branches at your convenience!

The store carries a lot of local brands, plus brands you’ll normally see at Sephora too. Check out their selection of trendy Thai makeup, lashes, and exclusive international products and fragrances. Some brands to look out for are 4U2, Mistine, Srichand, Supershades, La Glace, and Browit.

Right opposite from Siam Square One (where Eveandboy is), you’ll find the two-storey Beautrium, filled with beauty products of your dreams. Located near the BTS Siam Station, its central location makes it easily accesssible.

K-Beauty fiends will be floored by their vast selection of products, as well as local and international brands too. If you’re a contact lenses user, you’ll be spoiled for choice here. Besides the popular Thai brand Srichand, check out brands like 2P, JOJI Salt Scrubs, Meilinda, and Merrez’ca.

You likely won’t miss this two-storey Watsons building next to Siam Square One. Do you see what I mean by these stores being in very central locations? Going on a makeup or personal care shopping spree here will be easy-breezy. Anyway, I’m digressing.

At Watsons, besides all the local Thai makeup brands that I’ve already mentioned earlier, you’ll also find a huge selection of sheet face masks and lip products here. Mmm, hydration for days! Be on the lookout for your usual drug store brands too, ‘cause you might just be able to get them at a cheaper price point.

If you forgot to pack makeup for your trip and find yourself in a predicament, don’t worry, the 7-Elevens in Bangkok have got your back. This convenience store is stocked with makeup, skincare, as well as sunscreens in cute sample sizes! You won’t have to pay an extravagant amount for a packing mishap.

Beauty shopping tip: If you’re still unsure after swatching and matching makeup products from the other stores, it’s a good idea to buy their sample size packs from 7-Eleven so you can test them before committing to buying the full-sized products.

Who doesn’t want beauty at a bargain? Tofu Skincare offers beauty products at wholesale prices. However, be prepared to wade through crowds here. As it’s not a place to browse products leisurely, it’s best to come prepared with a list of things you want.

Be a little more patient than usual while visiting this store and lower your expectations of finding the exact products you want, as some items run out of stock fast. Good luck!

Address: 645/17 BETWEEN SOI 13 and 15 645/43 Phetchaburi Rd, Thanon Phaya Thai, Ratchathewi, Bangkok 10400, Thailand

Boots, the health and beauty retailer plus pharmacy chain from England, has outlets all over Bangkok. Fans of Boots’ own line of beauty products flock here for their serums, retinol eye cream, the vitamin C skincare range, and shower gels.

Of course, you’ll also find international beauty brands here like Soap & Glory, known for their body butter, scrubs, and hair smoothing serums. Ted Baker gift and travel sets are popular too—folks love their scents and the smaller packages make them easy for gifting.
