My Estée Lauder Makeover Experience

Estée Lauder’s Makeover preview night was a blast! And I’m not saying that simply because I’m an advocate for them but because it was really well organized; upon registration, hors d’oeurve, to the makeover, hair styling, photo shoot, collection of the complimentary photo and till the product purchase and redemption counter. My friends and I were remarking about how unexpectedly enjoyable the makeover was. Experiencing the makeover for the first time with my friends added a lot of excitement and joy to it. ^^

Intro was really long huh, I’ll now let the pictures do the talking. (;

Hair Styling @ Vive Salon

The evening started with hair styling at Vive Salon. The other 2 advocates and I had our hair washed/rinsed before our styling. Btw, that’s Jac‘s back view with her red Kate Spade bag.(: I was attended to by Gina, so if you like how my hair was styled, you can look for her to recreate the look or get her expertise to design a look for you. Vive Salon is on the 5th level of Paragon.

Pre Estée Lauder Makeover

After our hair was styled, we proceeded to the makeover area which takes up most of Paragon’s level one atrium, just in front of Coach boutique. That’s my au natural face and my fringe pinned up! I really love the Estée Lauder’s make up box with all the skincare and cosmetic goodies… It’s like a girl’s dream to own one and being skilled to create the magic on herself and on others. Speaking of which, one of my upcoming goals is to attend a course on professional/semi-pro make up so that I can learn how to better apply make up as well as teach others! (:

Estée Lauder Romantic Look

This was the look I chose for the makeover! Romantic look, with a darker purple eyeshadow. The lady featured on pamphlet is also one of Estée Lauder’s social media advocate, Eunice Leong.

With Estée Lauder MUA Tanny

Picture taken with the make up artist Tanny who created my look. (: She looks unbelievably young for her age (40) because she has been using Estée Lauder’s acclaimed Advance Night Repair (ANR) for almost 20 years, since her late teens. I was very impressed that she started using it since she was so young and she said it was because it’s due to her aunty’s influence who recommended it to her. I asked her how long a 100ml bottle can last her, and she says 3 months. Which is not bad considering how some product lasts only a month long.

A picture with Joan from Estée Lauder with a bevy of models behind us.

There were quotes from Estée Lauder models printed on the walls and this quote by Joan Smalls was on the wall near where I had my makeover and it’s also very close to my personal definition of beauty.

As advocates, we had video interview conducted individually, to be posted on to the event website (which I will upload the link when it’s out, I am both excited and apprehensive about how it turns out and how i look on screen! :P) and one of the question asked was “What is your definition of beauty.” And my answer is:

“Beauty to me is having a positive outlook in life and having a confident personality.”  – Ena Teo Jia En

I thought of this even before I saw Joan Small’s quote okay! ^^ Anyway I’m inspired to design my own “wall/ picture quote”. I shall and then upload on Pinterest, lol.

My lovely friend Belle, Pre Makeover Look

Meet my lovely friend Christabelle, in her pre-makeover look. I love how we are comfortable in our own skin without makeup! Girls, always remember to strive to have good radiant skin so that make up is only an added bonus to enhance your features, add (trendy/for vanity’s sake) colour to your face!

After the make up, there are two rows of counters dedicated to hair styling by Vive Salon personnel.

Photo attack on V rejected

V here refused to be photographed by me. ): She looks good without make up btw! But alas, I think she is shy.

YL all calm and composed

YL’s all calm and composed as she is enjoying her makeover by Tanny as well.

After we all had our makeovers and hair styled, we had a group photo-taking! I was telling Belle and YL after the makeover that I was very happy to have them down for the event. Because truly, when Joy is shared, it is doubled and moreover I had 3 friends with me so my Joy was tripled! I am so blessed. :’)

Speaking of blessed, I am glad I got to meet Wee Tsu, one of the winner of the giveaway and her invite, Rachel. We took a picture for memory but she requested not to post the photo. It was really nice getting to meet and know them. I hope I get to interact more in the future with my blog/FB followers in real life!

Behind the scene photo of my individual photo shoot. Haha!

The photographer was amazingly fast, he was like “thunder-lighting” fast, as Belle would say. The group and individual shoot time was all of about 5 minutes respectively!

My Estée Lauder Makeover Photo

There were about 7 looks taken and I chose to develop a more offbeat look for my take home photo because it’s different from what most chose. This is a “Hey-I’m-peering-over-my-vanity-table-oh-you-caught-me-oops” look. I totally won’t have dared to pose like that but it was the photographer’s idea. Told you he was good. (;

Estée Lauder Preview Night Door Gift

The Estée Lauder preview night door gift included a Sensuous Nude perfume, Tempting Melon nail lacquer and pure color 18 Bois de Rose lipstick.

Scene of CBD from Singapore Flyer

Right after the makeover, YL and I cabbed down to the flyer where her family was waiting for us. She redeemed tickets from her company and invited me along! It was a truly eventful night for us. I will blog about my first experience on the flyer in another post, so this is only a teaser/preview photo! (:
