Being made up by a celebrity mekap artist – So exciting!

Some weeks back, Nadnut and I were chatting on msn on the events that we were invited to. Though we both loved tech, we thought of how nice it was if we were invited to beauty and fashion events as well.

I believe that all women, regardless of shape and sizes, love to look and feel good. It is always exciting to try out something new, be it clothes, or shoes.

One of them being Taaz.Com where you can play with virtual make up.

Hence, when Nadnut invited me to tag along with her to the Revlon makeup launch, I was so excited that I could not say no!

I arrived at the Halia Restaurant in the Singapore Botanic Gardens where I saw a number of bloggers that I recognized as well as many other media representatives.

There was an opening speech by the Managing Director, Mr Art Miller and soonafter, we were introduced to Bree Sharpe, a Senior Trainer for Revlon who talked about the new ColorStay Mineral Collection and did a demonstration on one of the models.

The foundation had many nice features – it was long lasting, up to 16 hours, it had SPF of 10, as well as containing minerals such as rose quartz, mother of pearl and topaz. But what I loved about the foundation the most was that it was non irritating and even people with acne prone skin could wear it.

I listened to Bree retell her experience of travelling to different countries and how easy it was for other types of makeup to melt off in our tropical climate. The foundation, she said, lasted long enough for her jetsetting lifestyle and was gentle enough not to give her breakouts and it even healed her skin.

Coincidentally, I was at Watsons the day before and I noticed that it was already for sale, and Watsons is having a 20% sale off their cosmetics. So the foundation will cost about $26 instead of $29.90 😀

Next, it was time for celebrity make up artist, Andy Lee, to do a demonstration on using the 2008 Limited Edition Collection.

Watching him was like seeing a talented artist at work as he skillfully dabbed about the cosmetics on the models face and chatted amiably with the guests and shared with us the different make up techniques.

Doesn’t these look very pretty? I’m enamoured by how beautiful the design of the eye-shadow collection are. It’s like an artwork by itself! I thought the packaging rivals higher-end brand names but at a more affordable price.

I observed the other bloggers getting make up tips and impromptu eye make up from Andy and I desperately wanted to be made over too. But suddenly, I felt rather shy as all of the other bloggers were young, attractive and slim.

But Aaron was so gracious that he broke the ice and introduced Andy to me!

I was drawn to him instantly as he was friendly and sweet man, who was generous in imparting his knowledge.

Here is a video (with thanks to Aaron as videographer) of Andy doing makeup for me!

It was the most exciting experience that I had in a while. Me! Being made up by a celebrity make up artist! I was so enthralled. The day could not be any better.

We had a goodie bag at the end of the day :

  • A ColorStay Mineral Foundation
  • A ColorStay Mineral Blush
  • A Renewist Lipcolor

How very generous! With that, I’ll be reviewing these makeup in a later post ahead 🙂

  1. Hi ger~ Great review of the event. Nice seeing you too. You weren’t the only one being shy. Me too, especially when it was the first time that I see all of you!

    Being attractive, young and all that do not matter when whats most important is INSIDE – One’s character, moral values and intelligence. Beauty fades with time and age. But one’s intelligence will work hand in hand with the person for life. I think these are more important than anything that’s considered superficial. 🙂

    Btw, just to tell you, I love that beret you wore for the coffee event (forgot what it was, happened to read that post) 🙂

    Cheers babe!

    Thanks for dropping in my blog 🙂

    Indeed, beauty is nothing without a good character. And there are a number of media that we can see that reflects these.

    The beret? Gosh … hahaha! Cafe Noir being a french event, it gave me an excuse to wear it since the beret is one of the french embodiment 🙂


    Huh? Its just too camwhore-like … even for a personal blog 😛

    Sorry 😛


    Whats great was that he was really really nice and friendly 🙂

    He was more than willing to share make up tips which I thought was extremely generous
