It’s time to blush!

Went a bit manic the other day and got a new stash of blushers to add on to my current ones! Spot the odd one out:

Decided to colour my skin to match the wall decals in my dressing area. And of course, in case you would like a reference in terms of colour :)

With flash:

Just to note, the blushers are layered on pretty thick so the colour would be more obvious in the photos. All of them are sheer enough for light layers if you prefer.

While I’m loving all of them, FACE atelier facade in cha cha is definitely the one I’ll carry around with me on travels. It feels incredibly light, doesn’t require a brush (and I find it much more hygienic this way) and it gives a very nice natural flush!

Shooting with cellophane and tulle

Collaborated with Irvin and Shiqin from Meese Studios recently to do a shoot for two looks. The first was an outfit made of reflective silver cellophane. The way the lights were set up were perfect and the material looked absolutely electric!

The second look involved lots of tulle in bright contrasting colours with a japonesque make-up look (had mentioned wanting to do this in an earlier post and it has finally happened!). 

The studio at The Pond was one of the coolest I’ve worked in so far. If you couldn’t figure out the above image, there was a trap door from the second floor that allows you to shoot from up top!

Not only was the studio really cool, the make up and dressing area in the back was simply divine.

This has been one of the most fun shoots to date and I can’t wait to play with more material again! :)

Finally organising my make up!

I’ve to confess that I’m not exactly the most organised person and recently the amount of accumulated make up has really gotten to me! Things tend to get really messy doing hair, make up and styling for shoots so I guess I really can’t get away with having different things in many many different places.

Have been searching for a make up case for the longest time but nothing seemed to be perfect – the width and material of the inner tiers, the ability to contain heavy products but still be light enough overall, price, etc. Okay, nothing locally at least. If I were to buy this overseas I’d probably be paying more for shipping than for the case itself.

But today I was determined to find something and be content with it and guess it finally paid off! It’s filled to the brim with stuff but at least it’s organised :)

For those of you looking for make up cases in Singapore, these are some places you can try (sorry for the vague directions cos I didn’t take down the unit numbers!):

  • Far east plaza – quite a few accessories or nail shops have them, you just need to look on top of the shelves.
  • Bugis market – there’s a shop in the centre of the second floor which has a lot but the SA wasn’t the nicest when we went. There’s one on the third floor but only has about two types.
  • People’s Park Complex – this is on the third floor (turn right when you go up the escalators and walk to the end in the centre aisle).
  • People’s Park Centre – Affiliated to the shop at People’s Park Complex, this is called Ivy Cosmetics at #02-29. How do I know? Check out the sign that was on the former shop:

Didn’t mind being redirected a block or two for the day since finally I got what I needed!
