Beauty is in the Eyes of the Beholder




A very true statement indeed, but being a professional makeup artist, I also believe that in order to enchant the beholder’s eyes, a little touch of makeup is required.


Makeup is an art and it comes from within. If you have it, you are lucky, but if you don’t have it, you can train yourself to refine the skills. My make-up coaching class lasts for 2 hours and trains you for the following how-to’s:


·        Apply your make up for that flawless look.

·        Enhance your features, liven up your eyes- especially single-lid eyes, droopy eyes and puffy eyes

·        Wear false lashes (optional)

·        Achieve natural day and transform to night make up

·        Individual face shape analysis & advise on suitable hairstyles to compliment the look


This make-up lesson will provide you with everything you need to know to achieve the look you want.   Walk away with a renewed sense of confidence and a new look that will garner plenty of compliments, amaze you and your friends and boost your confidence to a new level!

As the base for a good color spread is good skin, you will receive many professional tips and easy, fuss-free tips on skin care too.



I have refined many adults as well as teenagers, including employees and housewives, and taught them the intricacies of makeup and skin care. I love to share my knowledge with my clients and they are very happy with the results.


Getting a personal makeup consultation is probably the best solution. As I said, makeup is an art and to learn it, you need good consultation. Get an appointment with me and let me give you a flawless look based on your skin tone and features. I also have you some expert tips to increase your face value, along with skin care advice and color selection guide. I’ll explain the different types of brushes and why it is important to get the right one for the task. Also, you’ll be taught the various methods of makeup application, and the compact that is good for you.


If you have always heard about fashion makeovers, but never witnessed one, this is your time. Shed your inhibitions and say hello to a new you. Let the more beautiful, the more attractive side of you take over- the you that you really are….


And if you believe that makeup is for shallow people, just touch yourself with makeup once and then feel the difference. It doesn’t just make others look at you, it will make you look at yourself! If you think you could look prettier if you just had the right person to help you out, you’ve got an answer to your prayers. Attend my makeup training sessions… or better still- contact me for a visit and see yourself transform.



It’s all about the features. If you buy lipstick shades by the advice of others, just keep in mind- what suits them wouldn’t necessarily suit you. Come for a personal consultation on make up or color analysis and purchase colors that look flattering on you. If you want to learn the best hairstyle for your face(depending on its shape), make an appointment with me for 1-1 hands-on hairstyling consultation. After this hairstyling session, you can create your own daily, nightly, and glam hairdos by mastering the use of the tools and products for hairstyling.

Here is a useful handy tip:


Makeup brushes are very important and if you can’t buy them all, make sure you have the foundation brush at least. It takes very little effort and helps everyone put on foundation and compact easily. You can get many foundation brushes in the market, but if you want the right one for you, contact me.



For all your makeup needs, feel free to contact me. You can also get color and style consultation along with personal and business etiquette courses. … See you soon.

Little Phoenix and Dragon Etiquette Workshop

  
To begin with, I would like to say that I truly enjoyed the The Little Phoenix and Dragon Workshop .



I’m extremely happy to share with you that the Little Phoenix and Dragon Etiquette Workshop had turned out to be very successful. It was held on Thursday, 16 June 2011 - 2 to 4pm at Lecture Room & Ixora Room.
 
There were 8 lovely kids age between 7 to 9 year old. I always try to keep the number of participants to the minimum so that each kid can get equal attention.

Children were encouraged to dress up in Peranakan fashion and the museum provided kebaya sarong and batik cina shirts for participants who wanted to dress up. When young kids were dressed up in traditional outfits, they looked amazing and the whole environment looked ethnic and grand.




 






The museum staff was very hospitable and helped in setting up the entire program. We started with some games and activities for the kids to open up and have fun. With the help of these games, they had a chance to interact with each other. It was fun to watch kids stand up and talk to each other. It gave them more confidence and I felt proud of them.



Then there was also a tour of the Peranakan culture where they were explained the meaning and the heritage of Peranakan history. The best part was when they learned about the Peranakan wedding events and culture. All kids were excited to know about various wedding functions. The kids also love the etiquette workshop segment conducted by me and wished the etiquette workshop was longer.





We soon had snack break and parents were allowed to join us later. Children enjoyed the variety of finger foods we had for them, and they practiced dining etiquette skills while eating. We also had sweet kueh, which became the favorite of all kids there. There were tea and coffee for parents and juices for kids. The whole menu was decided keeping in mind the taste preferences of young kids.





 
Later we handed out certificates to the participants. I was happy to see proud parents taking pictures of their young ones.


The program ended at roughly 4.30 pm and we bid farewell to happy kids and their parents.
 






It was certainly fun and I enjoyed the entire function. If you would like your child to participate in our holiday programs, contact me now as seating is limited. Early Bird Registration will save 10%.

Lew and I have known each other for just over 3 years. I first got to know Lew when I was searching for curriculum to teach my children etiquette class. There were so many curriculums out there and the reason I chose Lew’s curriculum is because she is prompt in replying to my queries, she is also friendly and professional. Furthermore, her materials/curriculum was great and easy to use...At present, I continue to use Civility Experts Worldwide training materials to teach my etiquette classes and have been successful.

As an entrepreneur, it is very important for me to deal with someone I can trust and working with Lew has been great... In 2009, I decided to further my training as a children etiquette consultant and got personal training from Lew and achieved my Master Level Trainer (MCCT®)certification from ICTC. This accomplishment has enabled me to build my business and to form a strategic alliance with Civility Experts Worldwide. With great pleasure I can announce that effective May 1, 2011, Image Flair Academy of Modern Etiquette is the official, and exclusive, Children’s Character, Confidence and CourtesyCoach Certificate Train-the-Trainer for Singapore. This means that I and my team will be delivering face-to-face Train-the-Trainer programs for etiquette consultants, daycare providers, parents, teachers, event planners and others who want to teach children character, confidence and courtesy.

Building Confidence through Confidence is Cool® Workshop

The latest Confidence is Cool® Workshop was conducted between 6 June and 8 June 2011.

Confidence is a very important trait. You can’t have great personality if you aren’t confident enough- you should be able to talk, walk and act with confidence.

While I have seen many management stream people talk about it, it is generally not instilled in children from the right age. Think about it- if a person has always felt low about himself from his childhood, how do you expect him to be more confident as he grows up? This is why I got the idea to start this workshop.

Confidence is cool. It is what gives structure to your personality. You just cannot have a good personality without confidence. You can have a great personality without expensive clothes and accessories, but not without confidence.

What gave me the idea of ‘Confidence is cool®’?


·       Many parents came to me and said that their kids were shy and did not participate in social interactions.


·       Some parents requested adding a lecture on public speaking. This is why I include it on the last day.


·       Some students needed a self-esteem build up. I noticed this while conducting etiquette lessons. Most of them had some kind of bullying experience, thus lowering their self esteem.

There were many other reasons as well, but these were the primary ones. One thing that I always keep in mind is to conduct a small workshop, involving no more than 10 students, so that it can be kept personalized.

There were 5 students in my class in the June 2011 workshop. The names were Peng Siang, Peng Yang, Pang Boslyn, Bradley and Bentley. All of them came in with little confidence on the first day, and their confidence improved over the next 2 days. Now I am extremely happy to see them talk to one another with great confidence. It reflects in their facial expression, body posture and tone of voice.



One of the parents was so happy with the results that she signed up her sons for the Etiquette Plus Workshop on 13 June to 15 June 2011.

You may catch some pictures here at facebook.

The workshop quickly ended, and I miss those kids now. I hope to see them again as they were all bright and cheerful kids. They did extremely well and I’m proud of them.

Rachel attended my workshop last year, and I got her message on Facebook recently:



These gestures would make anyone happy and proud. Thank you Rachel, I appreciate that a lot!!!

Do note that Confidence is Cool® is a holiday's program. I started this workshop in 2008 and the response was so positive and overwhelming that every year, I conducted it twice…one in June school holiday, the other during Nov/Dec school Holidays.

The Three-day workshop was conducted to help youngsters, ages 8-12, achieve confidence, social skills and fine-tune their deportment skills. It covered the following points:

·         What is Confidence
·         The Steps To Gaining Confidence (6 steps)
·         Setting Goals – Strategies
·         Problem Solving Skills
·         How To Assert Themselves Appropriately
·         Techniques For Overcoming Shyness/ Self-Esteem
·         The Language of Confidence – Verbal and Non-Verbal
·         Public Speaking Skills
·         Courteous Communication Skills
·         Poise and Posture
·         Situational Etiquette and many others.

Do you want your child to shine out among the rest too? Sign up for the next Confidence is Cool® now. But make sure you register on time, because I don’t accept a lot of kids in one workshop- Just to keep it focused :)
