If you’ve been following us, you might have seen or even participated in the POREfessional Summit that Benefit Cosmetics held, in collaboration with Daily Vanity. The event was held last week at Tangs Orchard and we had a blast. Because it is a private event and many of you can’t be there, here are photos Keith has taken of me doing the makeover for Cece Ann, who is an active reader of Daily Vanity.
Before the event kicked off, we were ushered to the open area where a flash mob took place.
My partner-in-crime that day was Jade Isabelle, and this is us before we transformed into the formidable Spygals.
And poof! Putting on our “uniform” for the day, we receive our mission brief. You could probably see how serious the makeup business is to us!
And we were introduced to our fans that day. Team Jade & Kristen was assigned Priscilla and Cece Ann, whom we will be doing the makeover on.
These are some of the tools that we were armed with to complete the task!
First steps, prep the skin. This is me applying the B.right moisturiser on Cece Ann’s face.
Then, I applied the Porefessional onto the area around her nose to create a poreless and flawless canvas. This also helps with mattifying.
Concealing and foundation came next. I used Erase Paste to conceal dark eye circles and Fake Up for freckles.
The process was really quite fun. I was initially very nervous because I’ve never done makeup on anyone else besides Keith’s guyliner, my mum and myself. Cece Ann could tell that I was quite nervous about hurting her if I tugged too hard, or blending the colours poorly, and she was really encouraging and accommodating!
While Jade and I worked as a team as we asked each other for a second opinion when we did makeup on our respective fan, Cece Ann and I were a team too, as she encouraged me and gave me her approval for the looks.
Finally, here’s the before-and-after photos of Cece Ann, who went from pretty to prettier! I think I didn’t do such a poor job, did I? :)
One more photo of her final look.
I guess it was a happy day for the Spygals and the fans.
All that started well, ended well. Phew!
