Last Saturday, I was over at my friend Yvonne’s place doing her makeup for her pole dancing photoshoot.
Pole dancing’s become quite a thing in Singapore. Not in the stripper hooker club sense, but it started off for exercise, then as a dance form. There are even some Singapore celebrity performances thingys. (Click here to see Hossan Leong’s and Tan Kheng Hua’s amazing performances. The thing Irene Ang did is not pole dancing.)
We did two looks, one dark and sultry, and the other happy and colourful (think preppy cheerleader. It fits, because Yvonne used to be a cheerleader which is why she has the killer strength + abs to do pole dancing).
For the first look, I used MAC Blacktrack, OCC Triptych Loose Powder Concentrate to get that beautiful gold on the lower lashline, NYX Snow White on the lips and OCC Triptych Lip Tar patted on top for dimension.
Mussed up hair after a few stunts. Mostly upside down.
That shit’s hard work.
This one’s my favourite. I think the body paint really did do something here.
For the second half of the shoot, I used a now discontinued MAC product, MAC Aqualine Liquidlast Liner, a beautiful dazzling turquoise colour. When they called this thing ‘liquidlast’ they weren’t kidding though, this stuff is near impossible to remove from the skin. Again, I had gold on the lower lashline (it just looks so good on her tan skin!) L’oreal Gold Chrome HIP Chrome Eyeliner as a metallic gold. It’s darker than the OCC Triptych I used before. I used OCC Electric Grandma (coral with gold sparkles) on her lips. Then I dipped my fingers into eyeshadows and went on a finger painting spree.
Her hair was also a success, whee! (I’m usually absolutely crap at hair). I had spray painted black bobby pins gold, then twisted and pinned loops of her hair into place. It got that adorable zany look that I wanted. And Yvonne looks absolutely adorable here.
The colours in this one. ❤
