Event: Lancome X Alber Elbaz Hypnose Show

Most normal people dislike working on Saturdays, so I was pretty surprised both by myself and the number of editors/journalists who turned up at Saturday’s Lancome event. Well then again, it is Lancome, so I guess the incentive was there (along with the possibility of freebieeesss)

I actually had no idea what to expect until I turned up and realised, ohhhhh this was a beauty fashion show. Lancome collaborated with Alber Elbaz, artistic director of Lanvin to launch a special makeup collaboration, and to commemorate this, either 8 (or 9?) famous Singaporean makeup artists (including Grego, Yuan Sng, Dollei Seah, Peter Khor and more) created a series of looks using this special collection. The models were outfitted by local designer Mae Pang.

It was a vague madhouse since it was held in Sephora at ION Orchard, and there were shoppers everywhere along with invited guests. Thankfully, I found several pals from CLEO and Her World, but not-so-thankfully, I also saw the ex-colleague who unceremoniously deleted me off Facebook the day I resigned. Ah well, commence Operation Do-Not-Make-Eye-Contact-Or-Else-I’ll-Have-To-Make-Awkward-Small-Talk.

Lancome Alber Elbaz (6)Grego’s look – Grego is the most vivacious, encouraging, charming, friendly, sweet thang EVER. He never fails to bring a smile to my face. Of course, he’s also an awesome makeup artist.

Lancome Alber Elbaz (11)My favouriteeeee look of the day! Not sure if it was the giant ribbon on her head, the heart-shaped lip kiss, the awesome Korean-style eyeliner/shadow or the overall cute-edgy outfit, but I. Loves. It. Dollei Seah, you rock!

Lancome Alber Elbaz (12)If I remember correctly, this is Peter Khor’s look (cos I remember him saying that he got the awesome stockings/tights from Chinatown for $15 or something lol)
