Welcome to the inside of my head.

Sometime during my internship, Shakira and I bumped into a random person outside the station selling a makeover day and I don’t know if it was the weather or I had a long day at work but we ended up buying it. We booked it for two months time and didn’t really think about it until a few days ago when we had to start preparing.

This morning when I woke up, my first thought was WHY AM I DOING THIS? I don’t know the first thing about hair and beauty. My beauty essentials are moisturising cream and eye pencil. I still haven’t figured out how to utilise liquid eyeliner. I rarely paint my nails because they’re usually half bitten. Basically I’m a disgrace to the beauty community.

However I thought: fuck it. It’ll be an experience, good or bad, at least it’ll be interesting.

As part of the day, they gave us a manicure (lol), an aromatherapy hand massage, styled our hair and gave us a full blown makeover. After that there was the photoshoot… which was the part that I was worried about. My mental commentary was something along the lines of:

How do I stand? What do I do with my hands? How do I smile? Should I pout? Can I even pout? *commence awkward fish faces in the mirror* argh Argh ARGH.

However I need not have worried. The photographer clearly knew what he was doing. He told us exactly where to sit, where to look, where to put our hands. All of this he did very quickly so I just felt like I was following instructions. Head here. Face up. Chin down. I can do this.

It turned out to be a really fun day. Definitely worth the experience.

So yeah. This is my face.

Thanks Photoshop.

I hope this doesn’t turn into my Rishta (pre-wedding) photo. Because they will be hella disappointed when they see me in reality.

Over and Out!

  1. I don’t know why, but this was amusing to read. 😉 Just to see how reluctant you were.

    • Haha I had no idea what I was going into. I hardly ever do this sorta stuff (as you can probably tell). But hey sometimes things are fun just for the lols. 😛

  2. You look soooo beautiful 🙂

    Hehe we were worried for no reason – it was an amazing day!

    • Photoshop thanks you for the compliment 😛

      Glad you had fun. Sharp contrast from the morning when you were like EHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  3. Aww, you look Beautifullllllllll 🙂

    • Haha thanks! It’s a far cry what what I usually look like *picture lazy bum in sweatpants* but it’s nice to see that there is potential. 😛

  4. You look amazing 🙂

  5. Now that is some shaadi.com material! 😉

  7. The make-up is really nice, and you look just as nice yourself 😀
    Great photo!
    I haven’t had a photoshoot before but I know that I would be the exact same with the not knowing how to pose haha. I can’t even make a normal face when smiling for photos taken by someone I know. But the not knowing worked out for you 🙂

    • Thank you 🙂
      It was such a bizarre day for me- I honestly never do such girly things. If I wasn’t explicitly told where to sit and what to do, I’m sure the pictures would have all been of me looking very confused/awkward. I think it’s a mark of a good photographer that it didn’t happen like that.

      It’s one of those things every girl should try at least once in her life, even it’s for the lols.
