Guardian Beauty in Action 2015

The highly anticipated Great Guardian Makeover is back! Themed Beauty in Action this year, the two-day event empowering women with tips and tools to look good and keep healthy while on-the-go, kicked off with a buzz in Nu Sentral last weekend.

Now, in its 9th year, Guardian has taken the role of encouraging not just women, but the community in general, and its customers in particular, to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.

They have sold more than 1000 tickets this time. The queue for the makeover was overwhelming! It is open to anyone who purchases a ticket of RM10 when you purchase any products of a participating brand. The makeover consists of make-up done by MakeUp Puzzle, hair styling by A Cut Above and a professional photography session to capture the best pose. On top of that, you get to bring home a goodie bag.

Dance performance.



Photo session.

Now, it's time for the makeover.

We get to choose one out of 6 makeup looks and I chose Number 1- Kylie Jenner with natural nude makeup. I wanted something very natural because I was headed for the High Heel Dash and another event after that. So, instead of having runny thick makeup on my face while I'm running, I had to go with something natural.

The makeup used for the makeover,


There! Natural/Nude face.
Seems like no makeup but actually to achieve a flawless natural look is not easy.
I actually love it! And the makeup stayed till I was done for three events in a day =)

Next, getting my hair done.


I chose the bottom right because it seems unique.


Love the braid and the curls.

Before look.

Then, proceeded to the photography place where everyone gets to take a picture home.

Meanwhile,there were so many tempting promotions around for makeup and skincare in the concourse area. Some promotions were so hard to resist.






Last but not least, I got to bring this home as a keepsake <3

Thank you Guardian for making me beautiful!
See you next year!

Spy Movie 2015


Don't be fooled by the posters of this newest Spy movie.
The main character is neither Jason Statham nor Jude Law.

Nope, it's not even Rose Byrne.


Look again. Yeap, it's Melissa McCarthy. And you thought looking at the pictures, the guys were the main characters. They probably made it into the posters because of their star quality to give the movie promotion an extra boost and because they are better eye candies than Melissa herself.

So don't watch the movie because you're a fan of Jason Statham or Jude Law. Rather watch it if you're a big fan of Melissa McCarthy who has carved a name for herself in numerous comedies. Melissa is an analyst who volunteered to be in the field when her partner falls off the grid and another top agent is compromised. So she went undercover to infiltrate a world of terrorists to prevent a global crisis.

Her journey is a funny one yet filled with action. It was actually quite a good movie. It was not very serious but stop short at being slapstick. It just lacked romance. Her co star in Bridesmaid, Rose Byrne made a good counterpart in the movie. I guess their chemistry worked in Bridesmaid so they worked again in 'Spy'.

Overall enjoyable but there were quite many explicit words which I'm surprised were not censored in Malaysian theaters. There were some really hilarious moments which left the audience in stitches =')

My rating: 3 and a half stars

High Heel Dash 2015, Publika

I know you have heard of races, marathon, walkathon and jogathon. But have you heard of racing in High Heels? Haha sounds very intriguing huh?
The High Heel Dash is the first-ever high heel race in Malaysia, in support of women empowerment for all ladies who want to shatter the glass ceiling. This race is also for a good cause. You pay RM150 to participate in the race and the profit benefits The Women’s Aid Organisation in their effort to provide a safe shelter for female victims of abuse.

The High Heel Dash was held in Publika last Saturday and they even opened registration to men! So yes, you get to see men running in heels! 


Choo Mei Sze, a cancer survivor was the brain behind this event and the emcee of the day.

That's my number. The event was sponsored by Malaysian Airlines hence the 'MH'.

My first run in heels!! Wee~

The dash was 50 metres long but there was a curve in the track so it's not a straight line. That's the hard part where most people slipped. All high heels must be 3 inches and above. No less! I had no prior training so I just ran as best I could haha Luckily didn't fall down!

Some of the participants dashing in heels...





There were many qualifying rounds throughout the day and those with the best time get to go to the finals. The entire day was filled with talks from inspirational people, there were booths selling food, beverages, etc and attractive lucky draws. And for a RM150 entrance fee, you get to bring home a goodie bag worth more than RM500!

It was definitely a one of a kind event. I had so much fun making new friends and seeing the guys being so sporting running in heels- all for a good cause =)

I think this should be a yearly event. Just don't slip, fall and twist your ankles =p

Spotted!

Okay I rarely post Asian celebrities fashion, but this is quite stunning not to post.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan arrived at the Jazbaa photo call during the 2015 Cannes Film Festival in an Oscar de la Renta dress. 



She previously received plenty of negative comments on her weight after the birth of her first child. But look at her now. This is one hot mama! The dress could have looked better though without looking like bits and pieces of it dropping like it's been shredded haha.

Nevertheless she looked stunning. She is the definition of Indian beauty.

Clio New Tinted Tatoo Kill Brow

I'm all for 'less is more' makeup. The more natural the look, the better. These days, when I go to work, I have very minimal makeup on. Just sunblock, pressed powder, blush with eyebrow and I'm good to go. Sometimes when I'm in a mood, a hint of gloss to finish the makeup or when I'm in my utmost lazy days, not even a blush. But I realised, with minimal and natural look, the brow is quite an important feature to complete that 'no makeup' look. A groomed, perfectly lined eyebrow is key in a girl's daily life.

And Clio understands that very well! Certain brands do not invest much in eyebrow makeup. All they have is just a brow pencil with an occasional brush for a 2-in 1 pencil. Clio, on the other hand, realises that eyebrow is very important to every female. Of course, embroidery and getting a real eyebrow tattoo does not come without P-A-I-N. So, how do we exempt the pain but still get a 'tattoo-ed' eyebrow?

Introducing Clio Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow.
Clio had an event at Muse by Watsons, Sunway Pyramid to introduce this Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow. Unfortunately, that day Sunway Pyramid had somewhat of a power failure and the air conditioners in the entire mall were dysfunctional for quite some time. Everyone was sweating bucket loads including me with makeup melting at the event *so embarrassing* haha but the event has to go on, sweaty armpits or not.

The Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow. 


Comes in 3 colours- Soft Brown, Earth Brown and Dark Brown.
This is a dual type tattoo brow with a tattoo pen and a brow mascara at both ends of the wand.

This is the first 3 in 1 Kill Brow that can complete colouring, shaping and tattoo all at once. It's tattoo through tanning and not with pigmentation. It naturally makes skin brown by reacting to amino acids in the skin just like skin tan! A-ha! Never heard of before, huh? Further, this is a super resilient waterproof brow makeup that is water and sweat proof with Cross Combination Network film.

Their trained makeup artist demonstrated the right way to use Clio cosmetics on that day including the right way to use the Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow to complete the look.

First up, Clio Kill Cover Liquid Founwear cushion for even coverage.


Then Clio Brightener to enhance nose bridge, cheeks and chin.


Then the Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow for eyebrows.

I will re-demonstrate the use of the brow below.

Eyeliner.

Pen eyeshadow.

Mascara.

Blusher.

And finally the most rave about Clio lipnicure which is smudge proof and kiss proof!

The look is now complete to step out like a Korean star hehe!

So focusing now on the Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow, here's my review on it. 

I'm using the Soft Brown colour.

On one end is the Tattoo Pen and the other is the Mascara brow.

The tattoo pen has actually very light colour. This is because it will actually tan your skin in the long run like tattoo.

Just draw it on the brow like usual.

Left- with Tinted Tatoo Kill Brow. Right-None
The colour is very natural and light. It creates shape and contour.

This tattoo pen can actually be used in two ways:

-For tattooing:
After cleansing at night, before skin care, draw your desired eye brow shape along the eyebrow line. It tans your eyebrow skin during sleep (about 8 hours) so that your eyebrow shape will look flawless even after cleansing in the morning. When retouching the brows, just draw again with the added mascara and you're good to go. Use it 2-3 days straight and the tattoo effect will last longer.

-For Makeup:
Use it like a normal eyebrow pencil for a natural and fine eyebrow.

The brow mascara has darker liquid for added texture.

Just swipe it on the brow to hold hair in place and to add definition and volume. 

Left- with Tinted Tatoo Kill Brow. Right-None
See how the brow becomes visible and shapes the face.

Used on both brows now.

The after effect. No makeup, Just Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow =)

Now I feel more confident going out with just a drawn brow.

See the difference yourself.
Left- No drawn brow. Right- drawn with Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow
I look washed out without eyebrows on the left and on the right, the brows made my feature stand out. 
Told you that a groomed, perfectly drawn brow is definitely key in a girl's daily life.

It is long lasting as if it were tattooed on and saves you the time to look presentable with neat eyebrows.

Clio Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow retails for RM 95.30 at Muse by Watsons.
