Make Up Lesson by Make Up Forever

Posted By Homemade Princess ~ Jul 30, 2012 1:58AM


I went for a makeup lesson the other day. Wanted to drag Lili to go with me, but she is still in Korea, so I had to go by myself. 

This is not the casual workshop type that teaches simple everyday makeup. It is a one-to-one lesson with a professional makeup artist/trainer, conducted by MAKE UP FOR EVER. It is definitely more in depth, and you could ask specific things that you otherwise wouldn't be able to, in a big class. 


The makeup lesson was conducted at Sephora, ION Orchard. Extremely convenient. Plus I could get my dose of bubble tea and Awfully Chocolate after that!! :P


Me before any makeup.


I was astonished with the number of items on the table. (Click on the picture to enlarge.) 

And it didn't even include the eye colors, lipsticks, mascara etc. Honestly, do we need to use that many products? Haha.

Well I guess if it's just an everyday makeup, you could just put on the basic stuff. This is really full makeup for things like functions, photoshoots, theatres etc. It was excellent for me, since I do my own photoshoots for Chandelle House.

I got to learn the different colours of primers and their respective uses (for example purple colour corrects yellow skin tones while orange color helps to cover dark circles); the different brushes for different purposes and the correct ways to use them.  


The trainer Wan, demonstrated each step on the left side of my face, and I was to do it myself on the right side. 


That was one of the last photos I managed to snap before being told by the security guard that photography was not allowed in Sephora. Sobz.

Luckily ION has clean, nice-smelling toilets where I could park myself to camwhore. \\>_<//


Love the smokey eyes!! 

You could use the same technique with lighter eye colors for a less intense result. Time to stock up on new eye shadows!  



Love my new top and belt! Watch out for them in Chandelle House! Coming soon. 



Wan opted the sculptor for me instead of blusher, coz it goes better with the intense smoky eyes. See how the sculptor slims the face and creates the illusion of high cheek bones. 

I'm usually a blusher girl, but the more I look at these photos, the more I'm in love with the sculptor. Must get one of those!!



I did the Complete Make Up Lesson (75 mins), and am really happy with my newly acquired skills. Gonna try the smokey eyes with my models next time! :D 



Sephora, ION Orchard (Level 1)

For those who are into more professional makeup, they have an academy where they teach runway makeup, airbrush techniques, body paints etc.

celebrations & farewell, nice people & nice food.

Posted By Homemade Princess ~ Oct 14, 2011 10:39PM


Went to gym the other day, coz I am getting fat and really need to lose those flabs.. But  I dun usually go to gym, nor do I like running along the roads. Air quality is bad, plus all the traffic lights... I prefer the stadium. :)

Except I don't have an exercise regime.

This is obviously the before picture. Was tooooo tired and sweaty (and unglam!) to take any post-exercise pics.


Went to Sky on 57 to celebrate the husband's birthday. :) We ordered the gastronomic set menu.

I love raw oysters.

Nordic salmon torched.

Scallop (my no.1 love!) and foie gras (I'll avoid it if I can. Just google and you know what I mean..)

eh... lobster?

A refreshing pre-dessert drink that i really liked. But I can't remember what it's called, nor the contents. I think it's maybe soursop juice with vodka/martini??

Sparklers for the birthday boy! A really nice touch. And the staff sang the Happy Birthday Song. :) But that was like the tenth(?) time we heard the song that night!! Nevertheless, it still felt rather special when it was our turn. :D

To be honest, the food was not all that great. I mean it's nice, but it's not WOW. The view was however, WOW! Love it. Someday when I become real rich, I'll hold a HUGE cocktail party at the patio. kekekeke...

It was the weekend before F1, and the track was all lit up. Singapore is such a beautiful city isn't it? I can imagine why all these expats like it here. I would want to live in Singapore if I were an expat... But that is a story for another day.

I was wearing the Zara Inspired Tiered Dress. Different colors for different days. Love it lots. Totally can't see my tummy after a full full meal. :)


On a different day...

Met a really sweet customer the other day. And she sent me a pic of her in her latest purchase from Chandelle House! :D Thanks Belinda!

Girlies dinner at authentic okinawa restaurant. Gonna miss this naughty sweet girl. Come back soon ok?!

These two naughty girls are like 6-7yrs younger than me, and they're always bullying me. HUmF! 看我好欺负!


One of my favourite dish! :P Slurpz. Dun eeeks ok? It's full of collagen!

Naise? :D Coming to you soon!


And I wore this to cut hair the other day. Lazy clothes for lazy days.


Weekend is here, but I still got tonnes of work to do.. sobz..

While I work, you girls party hard k?! Gambate!!

Short Trips

Posted By Homemade Princess ~ Aug 13, 2011 3:44AM



Just got back from a teeny trip to Shanghai. I love short trips. I think I should do more of that.

But my off-peak period somehow always coincides with the husband's hectic period. Oh well...


Photo taken in Changi Airport's toilet before the flight. Wore really comfy stuff coz it was an overnight flight.



I look an awful lot like my brother in this pic.



Yawning ah-jek barged into my shot. :\


Nice yummy tea?


Actually the tea was ok. But the flask was a turn-off. Take a closer look.

See the stains?! Well, it looked far worse in real life. But I still drank it anyway.


Nice orange cooler you might think. Tasted like orange squash syrup drink I used to have when I was little..

The taste is fine, but felt a little cheated.


Yummy fried rice!


The metro trains look sooo much like our MRT, I suspect the trains come from the same company.

I'm not talking about the handrails or seats looking alike, but the internal fittings like the lights, the way the carriages are joined etc. Should have taken some investigative shots.



When you are hungry and have nothing to eat. You can always count on MacDonald's.


Love this pinky corner in the hotel. But the husband took tonnes of out-of-focus shots.... :(


Metro station that is splashed in pastel pink and lavender! Even the seats. :D



Then finally we had our first yummy meal in Shanghai! On the very last day of our trip.


And how can we not have the famouse shanghai xiaolongbao?! Yumz.Not all xiaolongbaos are nice though. We had some really terrible ones on the first day. I shall not elaborate any further, coz just thinking of it makes my nauseas...

Love my polka dot hoodie sweater. Bought it in Finland during my honeymoon. Comes with matching pink slacks. ♥



Look out for this pretty clutch bag at Chandelle House. Will be launching it sometime soon. :)
