[Beauty Diary: Dry Me X Lash & Wink Beauty Quick 30 Minutes Makeover]

The MAKEOVER is on!

Calling all beauty enthusiasts, especially you aficionados of falsies.  Be prepared to have your lashes ready for some fierce batting and winking cos' I have an exciting beauty testimony to report today.

So, a couple weeks ago, I got invited to this beauty event "BEAUTY QUICK 30 MINUTES MAKEOVER" held by Dry Me hair salon and Lash & Wink to celebrate the launch of Lash & Wink faux lashes (yes ladies, there is a new falsies brand in town that you MUST try)

(I recommend the coffee tiramisu, it's just superb)

The event was started with an introduction to Lash & Wink falsies and followed by a smokey eye make-up tutorial by Marcella Widita.  Afterwards, we were treated to the Beauty Quick 30mins Makeover by Dry Me and Lash & Wink team ♥  
(both Sapphire and Amethyst aim for soft and natural looking lashes, while Emerald mimics an alluring and sultry looking lashes with its sexy cat-eye shape that flares out at the end)

(Moonstone helps you achieve that sweet dolly look with maximum length effect to make your eyes pop, while both Ruby and Alexandrite with their boldness and volume give you a classy touch to accentuate your glamorous night look or simply to complement your sexy smokey eye make-up) 

Step by step smokey eye make-up tutorial by Marcella Widita with various tips in applying your eye shadow to falsies.

For you who have read my previous post about my experience at Dry Me hair salon will notice the reason behind the event's name.  The words quick and 30mins have been Dry Me's signature as they offer exceptionally quick hair wash n' blow service.  
But for this Beauty Quick event, they added another element of beauty that was make-up to their quick 30mins service, in collaboration with the Lash & Wink team.
And once again, Dry Me together with Lash & Wink had proven to me that excellent quality can be delivered in such short time.  I had my hair washed, blown, and my eyes enhanced with Lash & Wink premium falsies in less than 30mins.
Waiting for my turn for the Beauty Quick 30mins Makeover, so excited!!!

Inside the goodies bag (besides a cup of delish Dolci tiramisu and various vouchers from sponsors) is a box contains 3 pairs of reusable Lash & Wink assorted falsies (Sapphire, Moonstone, Alexandrite) and a bottle of falsies adhesive.
I love how the box comes with instructions in applying the falsies, it is really helpful for falsies noobs.  And I'm such a sucker for the watercolor-themed packaging, it is so pretty. 

I decided to try the soft and natural looking Sapphire falsies for my first time.  Who knows a pair of falsies can make such a difference.  And the most important part was they were so comfortable that I didnt even feel like wearing falsies.
Thank you Noi for putting on these pretty falsies on me

[Sale Alert: Net-a-Porter]

This is the time I've been waiting for: end of season sale
And I strongly suggest you to check out Net-a-Porter cos' they seldom has sale.  
In conclusion, one does not simply miss Net-a-Porter sale.

Here's a couple looks I put up for your transition to summer.  Enjoy and happy shopping

Look No.1
What's a better way to start transitioning to summer other than with denim, it has summer and '90s vibes all over it.  And this LDD (Little Denim Dress) will do it for you.  Complete the look with Sophia Webster on-demand heels, Stella McCartney popular Falabella bag, and Isabel Marant tassel earrings.  The tribal pattern, the woven raffia, the agate stones, and the neon stripes...all screams summer for sure!
Rock this look to brunch/lunch with your gal pals.

Look No.2
The Valentino sandals form S/S 2014 collection inspires this (kind of) Greek goddess look.  The lizard-print bikini and gold-plated necklace with tusk resin charms are added to complement the animal kingdom theme going on the sandals (notice the gold scarab beetle embellished on the strap?)
And white is most definitely the color you want to have against the pristine white sand for that ethereal kind of moment.

Look No.3
The best time to buy a dress, especially an evening dress is when it's on sale, cos' let's be honest, it's not something you're gonna wear very often.  And you may want to invest in a simple evening dress that you can wear more than once.  A dress that you can recycle by simply changing the accessories adorning the look according to the event or season.
