Hey lovelies! I have been longing and awaiting to blog about this photo shoot as I have been secretive and never exposed about this photo shoot because I want to surprise you guys. But I have revealed on Instagram and Facebook because of excitement, so the surprise failed. lol
Actually before this photo shoot ever happened, during my semester break I was flipping through Cleo Magazine and I was wondering, it would be awesome experience when I get to be featured in one of the pages in Cleo magazine. So, what I saw on the retail therapy page was mentioned about volunteering for the "suss out a new shop", so why not trying. Maybe I will get photo shoot, so I submitted my picture and details by snail mail. yes, mail. I know it's kinda hassle to buy a stamp and a envelope to mail them but I did. :)
On mid-September, I received a unknown message which is from Sabrina who is involved with magazine shoots that she asked me if I would like to go for the shoot. Of course, I was so excited and I agreed! :D Plus, she asked me to bring along 2 friends for the photo shoot for upcoming issues. So, I brought Net and Carolyn along, who are the only people who are free and able to go with me. :)
Where the photo shoots will be taken.
See the left side of this picture? Yeah, that's me on the process of makeup. My arms looks so wide LOL =.=
The stylist of the day; Gavin Soh. He's really good in makeup and hair styling! He has been doing this for lots of photo shoots from high fashion shoots to famous celebrities. He's friendly too! He did showed me the look I'm going to have for the shoot which he showed me through his phone and I literally laughed because of the hairstyle which it was very exotic to me HAHA
Testing, one two three.
Net's turn for makeup!
Makeup, clothing all set and now shoot!
On the process of shoot...I was seriously a noobie for modelling and posing stuff and I can't smile well T-T Oh well, maybe modelling wasn't for me. lol
Carolyn did her makeup by Gavin too!
After my photo shoot....(we didn't managed to capture the process of shoot part because everyone was quite busy)
Selca shots! Mine was turquoise eyes and Net's was blue!
Closer view for my eye makeup.
My pores is so obvious >.<
I'm featured on Cleo Magazine November Issue!
My mum can't even recognized me from this picture because I look kinda mature on this picture. :O
This shoot and being involved in the magazine was indeed a great experience and also it was my "What-should-I-do-before-I-die-list" LOL I guess I can die in peace now lol *touch wood x10000*
I wasn't allowed to reveal Carolyn's makeup and shoots because she want to blog about this when she was featured on upcoming issues. :X So, be anticipated haha.
Thank you Cleo Magazine Malaysia! xoxo
