My Date with Beauty
Hey guys! I bet most of you have heard of the yearly Great Guardian Makeover event by Guardian. Each year,  the number of participants grew and enthusiasm and excitement filled the event. Participants get to learn about makeup and skincare tips, and of course have fun too!

Last weekend, the entire One Utama concourse filled with happiness vibes from everyone, including the fun and happy dance before the event started. Themed "My Date with Beauty", this year's Great Guardian Makeover was held at One Utama Shopping Centre. Participants who arrived as early at 10am were given a makeover, goodie bag and a personalized photo to bring home.

18 brands participated in this year's event - L'Oreal Paris, Maybelline New York, Alcon, Avene, Bio Essence, BioGrow Oat BG22, Biore, Blackmores, Brands, Dermatix, Enchanteur, Hada Labo, Nano White, Neutrogena, Nivea, Oslee, Palmer's and Safi.


Participants get to choose which look they would love to go for - Glam or Nude. I always prefer the nude makeup look for my everyday look. 

The lovely makeup artist suggested me to go for the glam look and I was totally surprised with heavy, thick black eyeliner on my eyes! This is something I have never done for my eye makeup. I love how it makes my eyes look bigger than it is. 

For the hair, participants get to choose either three hairstyles - Straight, Curl or Braids with curl. Again, I let the hairstylist do whatever he think that suit me the most. 

Lovely hairdo

What can I say? That was such a lovely experience and I definitely look different than how I look previously. The hair and makeup partner of this event was A Cut Above Academy. There's a total of 20 stylists and make-up artists worked together, attending to the participants.

In conjunction with the Great Guardian Makeover, there also TWO online contests -  a Photobox Contest on Facebook and an Instagram Contest. The contest period for both the contests is from 5th April - 30th April 2014.
