behind the scenes: Maybelline Fashion Shoot

Being the diligent blogger I am,
here i go, blogging at 1am in the morning,
barely 2 hours after i just got off the plane.
-bows-

Nothing much happened last week,
with the exception of the Maybelline shoot we did
with the winner of the Maybelline/Missypixie contest, Rachel :)
Had plenty of fun laughing at the antics of the makeup artist, Larry,
who was super friendly and amusing,
and of our photog who cracked us up with the name of his dog.
More on that later.

First up, this is what i wore to the shoot!


BELLA cream with my new sparkly flats.
I don't know if you have the same problem
but i am forever stuck in the same dilemma with crochet/lace.
If it comes in black and cream, i can never make up my mind to get which colour.
And by the time I am done dithering, like 3 days later,
i usually give in and just get both colours. Ugh.
In case you were wondering,
YES WE ARE OPENING BACKORDERS FOR THIS TOP!!!
yippeeees :)
look out for it this weekend ok?




our bagful of goodies for Rachel :)


makeup artist arsenal of tools.






had a guest, Frosky!
okay, here goes the story..
when we heard his name, me and Sharmie were going..
Frosky, froSKY, like bit weird, maybe the photog was going for the
russian names version, like tchaikovsky ya know?
Then during the shoot, Sharmie started singing,
FroSKY the snowman, was a jolly happy..
and the photog said excitedly,
"yah loh, yah loh! i named his after this song!!!"
and we went,
"huh?? but..but the song is FrosTY!! not FroSKY!!!"
He said,
"ah yah, same same."
-_-'''


priceless look between Rachel & Larry, hahahahahha.
we were all joking about how they look like some married couple
doing wedding photoshoot.


One very happy Larry, and a mildly worried Rachel.


Sharmie with our Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara!
apparently they did a version just for ASEAN eyes alone,
thats how dedicated they are.


read on to take a look at this wonderbaby!


this is Larry doing the makeup tutorial thats going up on Youtube soon.
You have to watch it cos he dispenses pearls of wisdom like..
when u first take out your mascara wand, dab it a little on a clean tissue
to remove the excess product. This helps to avoid clumping.
And then, wave it a little for about 3 seconds for the mascara to dry a little
before applying it on your lashes. Then it will hold the curl.
Like really??!!! i never knew!


and see the effect!!


Larry like some proud parent.


but actually here is the totally unglam shot of him,
trying to look less tall beside Rachel, wahahahhaha.


love her eye makeup as well :)


and Jimmy the photog (and his FroSKY name, haha)
was kind enough to accommodate with random photos!
Here is Avril from Maybelline with us :)))


and us like happy parents with Frosky.


he has his OWN WINGS. SO CUTE CAN.


then lazy le, hahahhaa.


lastly a shot with Rachel!

and there goes the end of a really long photoshoot session. Phew.
and cos I am half brain dead from the long day today,
and work i still need to rush before sleeping,
here is the quick summary of outfits from the past week.


a high neck romper coming up this weekend :)


i wore it with NIK red belt cos i wanted to break the whole black suit look.


did my french maid look with a collared shirt and skater dress!
best way to get more mileage outta your existing wardrobe - mix it about!

and thats it!
good night folks!

much love,
kelly
