Whenever I get requests for makeovers, I will always want to give the look that my friends desire or have in mind, especially if they fancy a certain type of celebrity makeup! So when one of my churchmates, Huifen, approached me to help her with her makeup look for a wedding in which she was invited as an emcee, I was excited to say ‘YES!‘ 🙂

Her ideal look? Joanne Peh’s chic look at the Star Awards 2010!

Basically, the eyes are emphasized with blacks and lashes, while the rest of her face was kept nude. Usually for the right look, only 1 or sometimes, 2 of the face features are emphasized to give a certain focus yet not overdone feel.

Presenting my model, Huifen, who already is pretty without makeup 😉

And here are the FINAL results:

As this was the first time she had worn such heavy eye makeup, it took Huifen some time to get used to her new look. But she was in love with the look, and so was I! 😀 I would like to thank her for her enthusiastic support for MAKEUP PAPARAZZI and I’m going to end this post with a picture of Huifen and her beau with the wedding couple…




Don’t fret if you missed the Part 2 of Star Awards 2010, because captured most of the shots anyway 😀 The female celebrities were all decked out in fashions statements and you know what they say about what makeup you wear dictates your personality (or is it me who’s saying that for the first time?)

Here’s who caught my eyes for makeup and why:


SMOKY EYES: Seriously, I think Fann has toned down from stealing the spotlight with outrageous looks and instead, has settled nicely into this classic, elegant style that stands out. Married life has seem to give her more self-assurance, that’s for sure~


FAKE LASHES: Forgive Joanne for wearing such a revealing piece, will you? You have to give the girl an “A” for courage and effort, really. Plus, her choice of nude makeup with heavy fake lashes made the entire look more subtle rather than trashy (imagine if she had gone for thicker makeup!). Someone’s got to make the headlines, and no one else is more suitable or comfortable than her – that’s why she is the media darling, darling~


RED LIPS: Always a winner, Rui En couldn’t have made a better choice to use red lips (and red nails) to glamorize  her boyish black ensemble. You can’t really decide if you hate it or love it, and the best thing is, she doesn’t really care~


OVERALL: There’s nothing exciting about her makeup, but there’s nothing bland either. Maybe it’s her features, maybe it’s her smile… but you just got to admit you won’t miss her out in the crowd, no matter what. Some people have the X-factor and luck; and that’s the way it goes in showbiz~


BROWS: When you wearing something colourful like Felicia and have no idea what colours to wear on the face, you can opt for neatly trimmed brows… especially if you feel unsure. And I suppose now that it’s apparent she is contemplating leaving her star-studded career to pursue her academic dreams, I am guessing she is about making choices close to her heart~
