Ok, so you lovelies have seen my previous post about my hair makeover right? Now it’s my mom’s turn to be featured as the makeover model at MAC!
From the last “Shop MAC Cook MAC’ event, they gave me a free makeover voucher but it can only be used on Monday – Thursday, can not on weekend. Obviously I can’t make it la (working), so I gave it to my mom, and she’s really excited to try it! ^^
Here’s the story...
The before photo of my mom.. She just had her hair done at Luvaze Salon, Plaza Senayan, as you all know, hehe.. Originally mom has short hair, but she wanted a change so she did a hair extension a month ago.
Looks lovely, right?
It’s kinda dilemmatic actually, women with long hair want short hair, while women with short hair like my mom want long hair.. hahaha.. So you girls with long hair, think again if you want to chop it off.. ^_~
Right then, ready for the makeover?? :D
My mom is getting the makeover by Aida, she’s the manager there, and very experienced with makeup, you can tell that right away! ^^ I’m glad my mom got the best service there..
Step by step:
Clean face is a must for great makeup!
Shaping the eyebrow to instantly bring your face into perfect balance!
Next is the eyemakeup, remember girls, eye first, then face.. :D
Putting some eye primer/base to help the eyeshadow stays longer
Start with eyeshadow first..
My mom wants to try smokey eyes! ^^
Here’s the eye makeup squad.. So many!
Oooohh.. You see the left one? It’s the new MAC Eyeshadow palette from the “Shop MAC Cook MAC” collection! She’s so lucky to be able to try it on! ( even I only swatched it at the launch event, huhuhu)
Behold the glorious MAC brushes!
Putting the faux eyelashes
This is the lashes that she used, yes she bought the lashes so I can take a picture of this! ^^
Highlighting the below eyebrow area
Blend blend blend…
OK eye makeup done!

My mom loves purple, so the purple is added as a nice accent at the center of the crease, just a lil bit, but it made a difference.
In photo it looks easy and so fast ya, but in fact, eye makeup is the most delicate and also very difficult to do. Good thing Aida is a pro, love her work! ^^
Next is the face..
Using the Studio Sculpt foundation, nice!
Look at all the brushes! *drooling*
Also, it’s true the saying that a good makeup artist needs a good brush. My mom told me, Cilla, we HAVE TO buy the brushes! Me: Ma, expensive la.. Ma: Ok la, I’ll buy them at Singapore. Well, at least this time my mom’s buying the brushes, not me.. *happy daughter* *ahem* :P
Put some powder on..
For Shading, my mom’s face is not as chubby as me, hehehe..
Blush on to the apples of the cheek! Smileee..
Don’t forget to highlight!
Put some lipstick and lipgloss.. (oops, a lil bit of behind the sene here, hehehe)
And... it’s a wrap! ^^
She looks so young! People can’t believe that she’s my mom whenever they see us both, they would say she’s my sister, hahaha.. :D
Can you believe my mom actually spent almost 3 hours there? Full makeup takes time and patience, hehe.. (for bridal makeup it’s even longer, phew!)
Thank you Aida! Thumbs up for your work!
Photo with MAC Team at Plaza Senayan.. thank you guys & girls for helping my mom taking the pictures! <3

I’m so grateful that my mom had a great experience there at MAC.. and you know what? Today is the Kartini Day! ^^ I just realized it now that, oh ya, April 21st! :D
Oh well, I think it’s a good way to show a deep appreciation to all the women out there, You Are Beautiful. No need to be afraid of how you may look in front of the camera or how the people look at you.. Look at my mom, she’s still looking really young and pretty like that, it's not because she’s using expensive skincare or what, but it’s because she’s always be positive and cheerful (like me, hehe) in life. She laughs a lot, I guess that’s the recipe for everlasting youth.. :)
Alright then everyone, I hate to say goodbye, but this is the time to say…
See you at the next post! ^^
