Blissful Brides Magazine beauty spread, Vintage Allure.

My latest works are featured in Blissful Brides Magazine Issue 19, Jan-Jun 2014. I am especially pleased with the beauty spread as I love Vintage looks (and things) and I am happy to be able to create 3 bridal looks for the beauty spread theme of Vintage Allure.

Especially great for brides who want to try something vintage classy yet contemporary for her evening party.

Lash Play

Hair : Eventhough model has long hair. I wanted her to appear to have hair that stops at the nape.
Giving her hair big waves all around, I pinned in her hair to make it look full and shorter. A white feathery hair piece is perfect to give this an even more vintage effect. A nice birdcage veil is another great choice.

Makeup :
The look is Sensual innocence. We want her to look comfortable in being luscious and sensuous with a touch of innocence. That really makes a woman the most beautiful.
I used lilac and mauve for the eyes to create the very soft smoky effect while tilting the ends of her faux lashes downwards.
Peach colored blush to enhance her glow & a mixture of mauve pink lip colors to complete.

Demure Femininity

Hair : Add a twist to a loose updo, literally. Curling the front of the model's hair to create a huge twirl gives this loose swept updo a less contemporary yet softer look. I decided not to use any hair piece with this style.

Makeup : Peach eyeshadow to brighten the entire eye socket and dark brown for the entire eyelid to define the eyes. Smudging out the brown eyeliner to define the eyes without being too harsh.
Lips were stained with a Sienna color and finished with a touch of lip gloss.

Crimson modern Flapper

This is my Favorite of the 3!

Hair : Taking advantage of the model's long hair, I curled her hair with a big barrel tong taking care not to separate the curls too much. Unlike the more tousled styles I usually do for more contemporary looks and for myself, this style requires the curls to be more 'structured' and uniformed yet I have to make sure it looks soft, shiny and not hairsprayed stiff. The black hairpiece helps to give her that glamorous evening look.

Makeup :  Gold, bronze and charcoal grey eye colors were blended for that mysterious and seductive look. Strong wing tipped eyeliner defines the eyes and gives a slight 1920's flapper look. Fuller lashes creates that fluttery effect.
A mix of sable & caramel blush colors were used to contour her cheeks. I created a beauty mark above her cheek to add a touch of playfulness.
An intense bluish red lip colour completes our modern mix vintage seductress.

Clubpets : 50 Fabulous People with Pets

Happy Lunar New Year to all my friends celebrating the Chinese New Year!
So sorry for being away for awhile. I have been busy juggling with work, moving to a new home and of course Chinese New Year preparations. However, to see what I do regularly, please follow me on instagram where you get more upclose and personal insights. :)
As with my last post, I mentioned I have had the pleasure of being part of Clubpets' 50th Issue big bash where they feature Singapore's 50 Fabulous people with pets. Ollie and I were featured alongside local familiar names and their pets such as artistes Darryl Yong, Nick Shen, Zen Chong, Mindee Chong. Radio djs Yasminne Cheng , Lin Peifen, Glenn Ong, Jean Danker  & Vernon A (co-host of The Muttons), Love, Bonito's Viola Tan and many fabulous others.
There are 2 covers for this special issue and there is one which is limited to 1000 copies only! No one else is more perfect to be on this special cover except Clubpets' Ambassador, Coco,
 This is the other cover, featuring Romeo Tan.

There was a big party called Paw In Style to celebrate the 50th Issue at United Square on 28-29 Dec 2013. There was a myriad of activities ranging from Dog Idol competition, dog fashion show and contests for children. More importantly, there were adoption drives and talks to educate and promote pet adoption by Mutts & Mittens and Causes for Animals.
Ollie & I were delighted to be invited to attend the 'Meet & Greet' session where we got to mingle with people and their pets.
Ollie looks super fluffy in these pictures not because he has put on any weight, it is all FUR as he could not get an appointment with his stylist before this event. :) There are some who prefer him fluffy and I personally prefer him with his poodle cut. What do you think?

Here are some pictures of the event.

With Zen & Ququ. Ollie was trying to chat up a girl again. :p
There was a Photo booth where guests could get their pictures taken with loads of props provided. We had 4 shots and these were printed instantly for us to bring home. Pictures can also be found on their website should you (like myself) like to save them on your computer.

The cool peeps from Wellness had a chat with me about my concerns regarding Ollie's strict diet. Ollie has many food allergies so I prefer to make all his meals. I was told that there is a very simple Veterinary approved diet from Wellness called Simple. This formula comes in kibbles and canned food. We went home with a huge bag of Simple diet for Ollie, compliments of Wellness. Thank you!

I am reading to Ollie about his new diet and making sure all the ingredients are nothing but for the best for him.

And I've got a  gift too!

 Thank you Clubpets for the feature!
