Yes, that's me!
But nevertheless I'm posting this for a reason! It is #GLAMJAN!
Most of the time, at the start of the year, women around the world would put "Diet" as part of their New Year's resolution. As for me, "Diet What?"
Sorry, I just need all the energy I can get as a Blogger, Makeup Artist, Consultant (yes I have a real job), a home-maker and a hands-on mom! So instead of visualizing myself to get thin in no time, I'd rather do it gradually and stay healthy. But as I go through this "looooong" process, who says I can't transform myself in other ways?
YES, you and I can! With Makeup! I'm sure you love makeup as much as I do because that's the reason why you are here, reading my blog post! And you do know that makeup can not only change how a woman look but feels?
Max Factor is inviting women to post their most glamorous transformation selfie using #GlamJan and a message about how good it feels to glam up! And I'm taking part of this because looking good can really help you feel good!
The red lipstick looks "Marilyn Monroe-ish" right? Well, because she is the new Glamour Ambassador for the brand! Just a brief background, Mr. Max Factor was the man responsible for her incredible transformation from Norma Jeane to Marilyn Monroe! Propelling her career and creating a glamorous look that has become truly iconic!
Now let me share to you just some of the Max Factor products I used to achieve my own Glamour transformation!
Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara
Max FactorX Creme Puff Pressed Powder
Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Ruby Tuesday
In any makeup transformation, I like to start with a bold lip for me to feel good as I do the rest of my face! The Colour Elixir Lipstick applies like a dream! Highly moisturizing and pigmentation is really good!
Adding coat after coats of Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara can help thicken my lashes!
Then I pat the rest of my face with Max FactorX Creme Puff powder!
Of course, for an added touch, I thickened my brows, contoured my face and give that "unusual" post --- the no teeth smile! Since I am doing a transformation, I may as well get out of my comfort zone and strike a pose!
For the past year, I have always been wearing VERY minimal makeup because I always have an excuse of being "too busy" to prettify myself! This year, I want to do more "glamour" looks because I deserve to look and feel good inside and out!
How do you like my "Glamour" transformation?
