A MAKE-UP workshop titled ‘Just for You’ was held yesterday at the Kaleidoscope Studio, Kiulap. It was organised and hosted by Ly’s Faire Bar in collaboration with Plus+ Magazine, Cityhair Studio and Kaleidoscope.
The founder of Ly’s Faire Bar, Lily Bong, said this is the first workshop she hosted and it served as a platform for local make-up artists to share their knowledge and experience. She hopes to continue hosting such events on a monthly basis.
“Ly’s Faire Bar started about six months ago and it was a transition for me because I didn’t specialise in make-up as my major was in hairdressing. When I first ordered Michelle Phan’s Em cosmetics and tried it, I was amazed by the quality and I decided to start from there,” said Lily.
According to Lily, it is not easy to create a fashion make-up look as everyone has different facial features and she is still learning the skills to perfect the craft.
“In this industry, learning is never ending and what you need to do is to keep on sharing, learn and upgrade yourself. I believe I need way more practice because if we limit ourselves to Asian facial features, there won’t be room to grow. However, if you are able to expand and go somewhere else, it will be so much better.”
The workshop featured Grace Cheong, a professional make-up artist from Kuala Belait who graduated from Singapore and recently returned from Canada. She gave a tutorial on make-up, hair, dress as well as a ‘New Year, New Look’ talk.
Guests at the event comprised representatives from CapCity, Pondok Sari Wangi, Piccolo Café, and other partners. There was also attendance by students and local make-up artists.
