There is no doubt that first impressions are important. And this episode of Lady First Singapore demonstrates this clearly. From socialite Jamie Chua’s impeccable outfit (and hairdo) to 19-year-old Zhenxiang’s trouble with hereditary white hair, we come to understand that the image we portray has a huge effect on how others perceive us.
In some cases, the remedies are simple. Take Zhenxiang’s white hair, for instance. Guru Wu Li Yin’s recommendation is to use Men’s Bigen Cream Color and to apply some moisturizing lotion along the hairline before you start dyeing your hair. Just like that, Zhenxiang is able to dye his hair black within a short span of 5 minutes.
For the other guests, it’s not quite as straightforward:
1) Keely and I share one thing in common when it comes to makeup: We do not like the sticky feeling of lipstick. Yup. And I definitely detest having hair sticking to my lips after a gust of wind blows past. However, it is important to keep lips looking clean and moisturized, so a lip scrub can be helpful. The cleansing beads in facial scrubs may be too large and too harsh for your lips, so get one that’s just for the lip area, where the skin can be thinner than our eyelids, according to guru Clarence.
2) If you are a young man about to meet potential in-laws, remember that slick hairstyles are NOT suitable. You want a look that portrays trustworthiness so avoid going with the ‘bad boy’ look.
3) If you are a slightly more mature woman, avoid what Lina did by wearing a white dress and going with a makeup look that had her cheeks and eyes looking too pink. In fact, her skin tone is pretty dark so it doesn’t make any sense to have extremely pink cheeks. Clarence’s suggestion is to apply blusher in a circular motion, or use downward strokes, to ensure it blends in well. And, of course, pick the right shade of blusher!
You can also consider using a micro-blur product to cover wrinkles around the eye area, a glow creator to add a bit of sparkle to your look, but definitely always apply makeup according to your age.
