NYX Make Up Event

Weekend was tiring yet fun and happy!

Remember the shocking makeover I blogged here? It's actually for my ex colleague, Karen's make up course examination. She had been practising with this look for a month plus before the actual event date.

We basically practised once every week since June

Finally, the anticipated event is here! It was held at Vistana Hotel Penang last Sunday. We went to Penang a day earlier for rehearsal.

That's us (with Karen's friends and daughter) camwhoring in the hotel room :P

I couldn't sleep that night, partly because I was nervous for the event the next day, as I need to catwalk =_= And the biggest reason was, I miss my bed T.T I always have this problem whenever I go outstation/oversea.

Anyway, event started as early as 9am.

That's the ugly makeup-less me with my ex colleague, aka the make up artist (MUA) Karen

Yours truly with the other 3 models
Us posing, LOL

Basically, all the MUA gotto finish the whole bridal look in 45 mins! The theme is Carnival Bridal so that explain my bold hairstyle and makeup. My heart was pumping like crazy that time, so as Karen! I could feel her shaky hands....

And the result......

Karen won the Best Make Up!!

And this one is totally unexpected. I won the Best Model =_= If you were there that time, you'd see how good the other 3 models were. Seriously they walked and present better than me.... By the way, that's Zac Bong presented the trophy to me. He is a professional photographer and I think part of NYX make up management. I love his style!! Visit his website here.

After the event, we took more photos backstage

Last but not least, a group photo with NYX organizer

Anyway, I was happy that Karen won the best make up~ At least all our effort and time were not wasted!

Thinking back, winning that Best Model title wasn't really a big deal, cause there were only 4 models that day. LOL. Nonetheless, it was a great event and nice experience as I made new friends!

p/s: hubby surprised me by arriving there earlier than he promised to support me, and fetched me home! hehehe =)
