On the event day, we arrived with our naked faces. While waiting for our turn to get our makeup done at the booth, we tried to finish up a crossword puzzle to redeem a free makeup remover. Well, I did most of the filling up and Indah just did the copying. haha.
Eventually, it was my turn and I got Serena as my makeup artist. I always get tensed up when people do my makeup for me. Luckily, Serena was friendly, asking my opinion on the colours and look I want. I had to turn in my seat at one point as lighting was kinda bad since the booth is quite shaded so it was hard to tell if the makeup was applied properly. I totally can relate to makeup artists and their problem. haha.
Thanks again for dolling me up that day. The overall makeup style is quite light as compared to my usual fashion and cosplay makeup but it's definitely wow enough for everyday wear. I really love the vibrant moist lipstick colours from Za !! I shall head down to Watsons to get my hands on some soon.
Took some photos at the booth and made conversation while waiting for Indah to be done. The makeup artist took a long time with her eye makeup apparently. Ahh well, Indah has hooded eyelids which do not make it easy to add definition with eye-shadow or draw on eyeliner. The eyelids basically fold inwards, so no matter how thick you draw, it's not gonna show up very well on the eyes. I did makeup for one of my friends who had hooded eyelids too and struggled with the eye makeup for quite a bit. The key here really is to draw the eyeliner while the eyes are open, tightlining is very important for these type of eyes.
Anyway, Indah still looked great in the end. She doesn't bother much with makeup but she looks flawless when she does. Goofed off at the photobooth cause they're meant to capture our unglamness. haha. It's so cool how they made the photos into gifs and emailed it to us instantly. Check out our awesome gifs!
After the event, Indah introduced me to this chicken place which I never heard of before called Wing Zone. But its pretty yummy, you can choose a flavour you like for your chicken, from sweet to spicy. Indah had some Samurai Teriyaki flavour while I settled for some Honey Q flavour.
We then went to meet Xt afterwards at JCube as she just ended work (she was supposed to go for the makeover too but she couldn't escape work aww ) and accompanied her for dinner at Nandos. Tried Rainbow cake for the first time, but I'm sorry, it tasted bad. Too much cream and artificial flavouring for my taste. I guess it really is just pretty to look at. Catch up a while before I had to go home cause curfew. :'(
Well, it was still a fufilling day in the end and one thing I love about events like these are the free goodies. Upon registration, we are immediately entitled to a goodie bag which consisted of various vouchers, makeup products from Za Cosmectics as well as the recent issue of CLEO magazine. Here's some of the stuff from the event.
I really should start attending events again, now that I'm on a mini break from cosplay. I forgot how fun it was to go for such things. Guess it's time to look at magazines and newspapers for any upcoming events.
