Suzie goes Gala

In yesterday's post, I told you I was going to peform for some expensive car owners (you'll know what event in the last pic)

Due to the fact that it was a Gala 'Shanghai-themed' event, Suzie gets to have her hair & make-up professional done by stylists........oowee.. I was so excited as I ALWAYS have to do my own. I was dreaming of finally having someone to transform me looking like a real 'Shanghai beauty' like this.... for I never know how to....

The results? rather DISAPPOINTING (startling I would say) as you can tell from my expression............duh.........(just to let you know I'm not the only one who think this 'look' is so not-me. When i showed friend this picture, he led out a chuckle! How assuring was that)

Huh? What kind of hairstyle is this? There was no hint of 'retro-ness' in the hair nor make up. And can you see how messy the top was? The stylist was attempting to make it look fuller when i pointed to him that it was too flat. He tried to use the end of a comb to 'pull' up some volume and when eventually it got messy, he said it was ok as no one can see from below stage. Hello, got video zoom ok! And I'm the MC ya know? Each time I took a peek of myself on the big screens, I cringed.

So mid-way through the event, I re-styled my own hair and touched up the make up the suzie way. Even If I can't achieve the desired retro look, as least I don't look like a messy 'aunty' going for grochery shopping.

Ah, better now

Now to see the full picture.................

And your own styling is definitely better. So much for a professional...
