K-Palette Media Session!

Helped out K-Palette for their Media session makeover demonstration during their K-Palette week! (10th Sep that week)

Was told to go with just foundation! (Turned out that no need foundation at all loh)

The media event was held at a really really beautiful office that belongs to a media agency + interior designer. Love the entire feel of the office.

With the K-Palette crew!

The makeup artist from Japan helping me to touch up my base makeup before the media event started.

Products used! I have almost all the K-Palette products sold in SG stores and I love their brow mascara (not available in SG yet) and their eyeliners!

With my new friend, Jean! Who’s also a model for a different look that day. The whole session was less nervous cos I’ve someone nice to talk to and go through the same things with me haha.

Chips which I kept staring at and resisting the urge to eat in case I finished all before the media came. Lol.

The media session finally started!

The makeup artist did the Sweet makeup look for me. Lots of pink and softer look.

Jean did the Autumn makeup look since Autumn is coming! More smokey effects.

And we’re done!

Group pic with the people behind K-Palette!

For their K-Palette week, K-Palette actually had a series of free makeovers at different SaSa and Watsons stores around SG! If you’ve missed their event this year, look out for similar events next year!!

K-Palette have actually launched quite a few new items!

This is actually a limited edition of their hot-selling 24H Super Black Waterproof Eyeliner!

Comes in a super pretty pink polka dotted design!! Has the same fine tip and water-proof properties as their normal eyeliner, but has three new hydrating ingredients added to boost skin care properties in protecting the eye area! In limited quantities and every Watsons stores I went to had like really little of these left so if you want it you better hurry! Retails at the same price of $19.90 as their regular eyeliner if I’m not wrong.

Another new item launched in SG – 1DAY Lash Perm!

The 1DAY Lash Perm introduces a curl keep polymer that enables eyelashes to curl instantly with a single stroke. Durability of the curl is also reinforced by the polymer, ensuring that the curl effect lasts throughout the day.

Notice that the brush doesn’t have those clumpy substances when taken out of the tube!! I’m impressed because usually mascaras clump together when taken out of the tube. A special ingredient is actually added to this product to create long and defined lashes that do not clump.

I really like the length and feel of the brush in the hands! Seems easier to hold and apply.

Lastly, the Real Lasting Micro Eyeliner with micro-tip which was launched awhile back!

The best-selling 24h Real Lasting waterproof eyeliner now comes in a finer 0.05mm precise tip! The super fine tip give users more flexibility to draw eyelines. A finer tip also gives a more natural look as well.

See how it fine it compares beside the normal K-Palette eyeliner. It actually makes the normal range looks big when it already comes with a fine-tip!

Remember to follow K-Palette on their FB Page to be updated of such events!! (:

Jean Yip Hair Makeover!

Went down to Jean Yip sometime in Dec to have my hair permed again! They’ve this Super Shine Thermal Curl technology, a technology breakthrough in hair perming with revolutionary intensive hair treatment that will result in beautiful curls yet healthy and shiny natural looking hair!

I went to the branch at Compass Point and their manager, Johnny, a very nice and friendly guy tended to me!

It’s actually my first time doing a digital perm (my old perm was a soft perm without using machines/heat!). The whole process took about 3 hours, including the hair cut. The Super Shine Thermal Curl uses a special retexturizing gel which is a milder way to break up bonds in the hair. It also opens up hair cuticles to enable absorption of Nano Keratin. (Keratin is a type of protein found in the skin, hair, and nails)

Steaming the hair after applying the gel!

After that, a digital perm machine is used on my hair. Heat is actually passed through the curls. With the right amount of heat infused, hair becomes permanently mended and coated with nano keratin, giving our hair the extra elasticity and shine.

The process is then finished off with a hair mask for extra treatment of the hair!

Nice and shiny curls! I asked for bigger curls cos I wanted something natural looking. My hair felt really soft and healthy even after the perm! I’ve heard lots of story from my friend about how the hair frizzes up and everything after their digital perm. But I’m glad mine turned out really well!

Johnny was really nice to introduce to me a few methods I could style my hair. Like half tie, and everything.

‘My favourite is the half tie method!

Secured with a clip at the back.

My curls aren’t very tight anymore so my hair length is actually longer than when I left the salon. I really like my hair length that way! Not too short or long! (:

Headed down to Jean Yip’s at Kaki Bukit about 2 weeks after that for a Makeover + Photoshoot session!

Before makeup and hair styling! Super bad complexion. :/

Irene was there too! Yay company for the day! I love her long beautiful hair!!

After the makeover!

Beautiful curls at the back they styled for me!

Before the shoot! Apparently the head stylist wanted my hair to have more volume soooo the hairstylists had to blow more volume into the hair!

I decided to sweep my hair to a half tied pony tail and to one side of the head! Looks pretty good in real life! Love the curls! If only I’ve personal hair stylists to work magic on my hair everyday when I go out!!

Anyway, I went to facial the other day and my beautician asked if my curls are created using a curler myself and said that they are nice and natural looking! And yeah, I really like my curls as they are now! (: But note that bigger curls are not as lasting as smaller ones, that’s the trade off if you want something looser!

Behind-The-Scenes: Photography Product Shoot!

So here’s the ‘Behind-The-Scenes’ post for the pictures in my Cotton Candy Friends blog post! (If you haven’t read it, read it HERE!)
It all happened when I was thinking about how I should present the post and suddenly I thought of an outdoor shoot featuring the items. The problem was that I needed someone to help me shoot the photos. And then my dear cousin, JM, was interested to take up the job! So technically she was the one who made my plan possible.

The green background you see in the post is actually taken in her room. I love how the photos turned out with the green background. Very refreshing don’t you think so.

My Instax album I brought along in case I needed props. And hey, they came to good use!

Climbing up on the ladder just to get a perfect shot. Her head was almost reaching the ceiling okay.

My favourite picture of the shoot in her room.

Our outdoor shoot was taken here on an early Monday morning… We were so scared that the security guard would chase us away cos we were like two psychos sitting in the middle of nowhere and tying hair… And still tying hair.. (When they made a second security tour check)

Bag of barang barang.

She tied my hair for the day. I think she’s pretty good with different hair styles!

A few ‘unreleased’ photos haha:

HAHAH look at my face. I think I was grumbling at something and she just snapped.

A proper shot!

Going a little crazy.

It was raining so she brought her green umbrella out! (bought from Japan)

All photos credited to Papaya Shampoo, some photo edits are done by her, and some by myself. You can slowly figure out which is by who if you’re very interested okay haha. Btw, my cousin is interested in doing photography for couples/bestfriends/whatever you can think of! Blog Shop shoots also can haha. Her rates are cheap cheap cos she’s still a beginner in this field! Can email her @ for her rates if you’re interested. (:

Anyway, she’s thinking of naming her ‘company’ Papaya Shampoo. Pretty quirky name and easy to remember right! Can check out her blog at¬†Has pretty nice photos on her Flickr¬† to browse through! (:
