Do you like you? – lyrics from a song by Colbie Caillat
We all know that looking good AND staying true to oneself is one of the hardest challenges faced by modern women today.
On 1st September, our Singapore team, together with partners Ted Baker and Bobbi Brown, spearheaded our Women with Ambition event.
The exclusive event was a great platform for clients and candidates to have their styling dilemmas resolved and make-up questions answered.
Response to the event was fantastic. An exclusive list of invitees, comprising of clients and candidates networked and mingled over canapés and drinks, before the evening decked out in style with dressing tips by the Ted Baker team and make-up by the Bobbi Brown team. We also had a door draw where one very lucky winner walked away with a goodie bag from Ted Baker and Bobbi Brown worth $360!
Stick to classics
Omar, Brand Manager from Ted Baker, shared advice on dressing and styling tips for different occasions, varying from evening wear to daytime business events. He cautioned against ‘going with the flow’ and getting prints which would not last past the next seasons. “Keep classics such as a black dress and well-fitted overcoat with you on a business trip, you won’t go wrong with these,” he added.
On fashion mistakes? While dishing out a floral skirt he said, “If you are going to pair this with another floral print, I am sorry to say that you are going to look like a flower. NEVER pair a print with a print.”
“The secret to beauty is simple, be who you are.”- Bobbi Brown
So how does the modern lady look the part in 15 minutes when she is ever-challenged with a hectic lifestyle, balancing work and family commitments? Questions such as this were posed by our MC for the night, Sinead Canny, to Suzanah, Field Coach to Bobbi Brown Artists who has 15 years of experience with Bobbi Brown to her name.
Through progressive make-up demonstrations featuring our lovely model Tiffany, Suzanah from Bobbi Brown touched on many make-up basics, including having a reliable eyeliner and lipstick, and most importantly keeping it simple. Too much make-up is no good. “You basically stop when you look good,” says Suzanah. And looking good, we say, is being who you are.
