Sorry, I’ve been out of the radar for a short while. I just started a new job and I’ve been extremely excited since the first day. I suppose it’s the newbie rush!
Anyway, last Saturday was Halloween and I’ve got to say, it was quite an interesting Halloween celebration for me. Naturally, since we are still under the Movement Control Order (MCO) lockdown, we did not get to dress up and party like we used to. However, a friend of mine, Hanniz Efni and her team at Best Events Asia organised a Social Media Halloween Contest just to (pumpkin?) spice things up a little.
And surely, being the immortal (think zombie bride!) Miss Paris Ashiqin, I’d show my support towards friends and come in with a bang! When Hanniz asked me to dress up, the first person who popped into my mind was my Makeup Artist, Tina!
Tina and I went way back when she was working for a cosmetic brand at Mid Valley Megamall. After my first amazing encounter with Tina, I usually engaged her to doll me up for my events.
And here are some of Tina’s Halloween masterpieces!
Anyway, last Saturday, since I was rushing from the belly dancing class in Damansara back to Setapak where Tina and I live, we didn’t have much time to do a real deal proper spooky makeup, but she managed to get me to look like an old Malay hantu (ghost) who came back after a hit-and-run incident. Now, the ghost is back to seek vengeance! Haha!
I swear, making this sort of effort for an event really makes me miss our good old normal – events with lots of fun activities and many, many people to enjoy them with. Alas, let’s just stay vigilant and keep our Social Distancing until it’s safe to go out again.
Also, if you’d like to watch our Halloween online event brought to you specially by Best Events Asia, you can check out this video!
Thank you, Tina Shah for the gorgeous makeup and thank you, Hanniz and Best Events Asia for the invitation! See you guys next Halloween!
