These days, we tend to take things for granted. For instance, we take photos using our digital camera and then post them on Facebook. Sure it is convenient but remember the days when we use to print the film rolls and anticipate the outcome? It does make a difference to see the photos in print form, rather than limited to the screens of technological device.
Talking about instant photos, how many of you loves the photo booth? In Malaysia, our choice of photo booth is limited to the Japanese ones where you take a photo, edit it with stickers etc and have it printed as stickers. Besides that, we have a manual photo booth in which often used for passport photo. Then again, it is not technically a photo booth but, close enough.
We are now at the age of appreciating printed photography. Notice the sudden increase of lomography and polaroid enthusiasts? It does not matter whether it is film or instant, it is more fun to have a physical copy of your photograph.
Sereni & Shentel brings back the fun of photo booth through their latest venture, the Photobooth Events. Thanks to MAC Cosmestics Malaysia and Sereni & Shentel, I was able to experience this fun booth!
Of course, as always, what is a camwhoring session without a makeover? Yours truly was chosen to be the model for the make-up demonstration. I ought to be called the Girl on Water (A cheesy parody of The Hunger Games heroin, Katniss Everdeen’s nickname of the Girl on Fire). I will explain later.
Enjoy the photos!
MAC Cosmetics is here to promoted their latest product, Cook and Shop, targeted for the career women who is always on a go, looking for a hassle free and quick fix make-up!
I absolutely love their color range, so fun, quirky, energetic and full of youth!
Before the makeover began, the makeup artist, Harry*, prepped my face with amazing facial care product from MAC. She recommends using similar facial care of the make-up you are using to ensure they are compatible.
Trouble is… La Mer does not have any make-up range, not yet anyway. Meh. Anyway…
Yours truly all prepped up for the make-over. Sereni & Shentel Charlotte in Olive, Long back, short front dress from Cotton On, black cardigan from M&S and black flats with chains from K-Mart Australia.
I have the urge to wear animal print when there is an event by Sereni & Shentel. Can’t explain why.
The secret to even, long lasting and smooth foundation on your face is to mix the liquid foundation, concealer and moisturizer before applying it on the face with a specific brush. That is where the BB cream gets the idea.
Harry (I do apologize if I spelled your name wrongly... ) decided to use the second color palette on my face. A bit worried because I don't think I look good in blue or green.
I may look calm here but truth is I was having epic tremors within me during the demonstration...
Honestly, I was quite nervous and that led to this ridiculous non-stop sweating. Throughout the make-up demonstration, my sweat glands were working overtime! Damn. I can’t count the number of times poor Harry had to pat off the sweat off my face. So embarrassing! Hence, the title Girl on Water (Because Wet Girl sounds so obscene and pornographic) is officially mine.
Au contraire, Ivy was as cool as ice. The perfect demonstration model!
The best way to apply lipstick is to use a lipstick brush, more even and smooth that way.
Harry did say that, the most minimal make-up one ought to wear would be mascara. Eye is the window to the soul and the first thing that people will notice about you, thus, the phrase eye-catching does justify the need to use mascara daily! :p
The result from the makeover?
Taadaa! My face is now ready for a camwhoring session at the photo booth.
The reason why I am not a fan of blue or green make up is I don’t want to end up looking like this character from The Drew Carey Show…
Mimi Bobeck, the mean secretary...
To be fair, if done moderately, I think I should be okay, like today’s make up! *Phew*

How the photos will look like and the available props for the camwhoring session.
