Last weekend, I attended Topshop show at Digital Fashion Week, where the British high street label debuted their first ever Christmas collection on the runway. While the rest of the world were watching it on livestream, I got to experience the show live at Singapore’s National Design Centre!
She has found her dress, thankfully, but I wished I checked my email earlier. I missed out an email about Miss Selfridge’s Christmas collectionwhich looks very glamorous and seems to be aligned with what she was looking for!
Recently crowned by Elle Singapore as the “Makeup Artist of the Year”, Larry’s works are often seen on top glossies in Singapore. He has been involved in several fashion shows, and has worked with several beauty brands for their makeup demonstrations and presentations.
Larry revealed he usually carries a massive makeup bag or trolley with various cosmetics and shades when he is out on the job. That sounds like a treasure trove to a makeup addict, I am pretty sure. But for the purpose of this series, he shall show us what goes into his personal vanity pouch and trust me, it’s not all about makeup!
The second target of our “beauty pouch revelation” is Iris Chai, Assistant Brand Manager of Shiseido, based in Singapore.
Having known Iris since my very first encounter with Shiseido, this affable lady has been working at the company for more than 5 years, constantly keeping us abreast of the company’s new products and updating us with information on the latest season’s makeup trends and looks.
Of course, other than chatting about makeup, we had spent time talking about our common interests such as traveling, shopping and just life in general. My first question to Iris when I invited her for this series was somewhat made in jest. But yes, I am nosy like that.
“How many Shiseido products do you have in your beauty pouch?”
In what’s becoming a Christmas tradition for MsGlitzy.com, I have resurrected my guest contribution section again. This year, I have invited a few friends – who are also expert in the beauty arena - to share the contents of their beauty pouches. I am not sure whether you are curious about which items others are using, but I am definitely looking forward to their revelations!
The first person to kick off this series is Adlena Wong, PR practitioner at Platform Public Relations by day, home-proud and Donna Hay wannabe by night. Adlena’s first brush with beauty was at her first jobs – lifestyle, beauty and health writer at the leading female glossies in Singapore. With years of trial and error, her beauty favorites certainly do not come by chance but through personal experiences and interactions with beauty experts.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at what’s in her pouch!
With the Christmas giving season approaching, it’s time for the mad gift-shopping in town. What are the options for the office gift exchange, or Secret Santa activity at your friend’s house party?
Of course, bath and body sets are probably the most unisex and appropriate gifts for friends. Here are some “tried-and-tested” recommendations, where the scent and products are of commendable quality, tailored for the discerning friends and colleagues.
