Yesterday I received this comment from one of my readers....
And I thought....
It would be quite an interesting question to answer to!
well, he/she is not the only person who asked me that question!
Many of my friends/acquaintances asked the same question too!
and i've always enjoyed answering to that.
As you all know, I'm a person who love make up and look pretty different without it.
Soo there's a lot of circumstances where people got shock seeing me without!
Here are some examples:
When I go for facial consultation or just massage, I'll dress as normal (glam glam/cute cute/sweet sweet)..
But when it's on the facial day, it will take lots of eye power to recognize me.
Quotes from the receptionist :
' erm. Sorry you are?'
'Kelly 5pm appointment'
'Ah!! 0.0 that model Kelly?'
'Ya hehee without makeup'
'Sorry ah. You sat there so long I didn't know who's that so i didn't approach u.'
Quotes from beautician:
' ah! Kelly ah...' *silence*
' very different leh! Now I believe why u said you don't have any suitors in school or at work! '
' hahaha I won't lie for this kind of stuff, not exactly a humble person you see~ hahaha 0.0!! But ugly?'
' no la. Just looks like little kid'
Well... There's a nicer way of saying ' you have no sex appeal' hahahah
Once I met her during my clinicals period to pass her items...
I did warn her that I'll look like cleaner with my uniform.. But I guess.. She underestimated my warning..
' wahahahahahahahah' (yes, greetings from her)
' wahahaha!! Really can't tell that you will be interested in blogging/modelling when you're wearing like that!!'
' I warn you Liao ah!!'
' WAHAHAHAHAH!! '
-.- friends.. Always so frank... Hahaha
No la.. She's pretty too.. Hahaha
Well. Basically I don't put on makeup to school unless unless there's event after school. Cause I'm a very lazy person. But, surprisingly the first time I heard people commenting on my looks were during my first year.
See.. I'm in this clique of pretty girls that time..
As heard from my friends, people from other classes named us..
1) the pretty one (really pretty)
2) the bondage skirt (she used to like sexy tight skirt that time)
3) me... The one who looks very different from her Facebook display pic!
Then sometimes, when I go for clinicals.. I'll be on diet. My clinical friends will ask me why I'm dieting etx. Then I'll say I've got casting/photoshoot/runway etc.
Most of the times, they would 0.0 or just assume its some family photoshoot or marathon hahahaha
Oh oh! And when I said I've for interview. They will expect its from school/hospital/job agency! Hahahaha
But I guess, after 3years... No matter how unconvincing I look without makeup, they sort of know its brand photoshoot and runway.. Haha
4) Photoshoot, runway etc.
So the clients will always ALWAYS be 0.0 *silence* ' oh Kelly. Please sit down we'll get you dolled up soon'
And after the makeup,
' oh better.'
' so cute'
' so pretty'
I always wanted to shoot back
' before makeup not pretty not cute Liao ah?'
But I know.. Hahaha it would definitely be a very awkward moment of silence. Wahahah
Oh once, the mmk manager (good friends) who saw me without makeup for the first time.. Commented ' Kelly!!! Where's your eyes!! '
Wahahhaa but that's really funny cause during that period my eye makeup is really really exaggerating!
Well. I do have a few shops that I frequent and they all saw me with an without makeup.
Common things they say :
' Waaa u look different leh'
' I thought u're some secondary 2 students! Hahaha'
' you never put makeup got people recognize you?'
Surprisingly.. There are readers who recognized me on streets when I'm without makeup! Wahahahahaha
During those moments, I will regret not putting makeup that day! Hahaha
But the chances to see me without makeup is very high! 80% of my days are without makeup! Hahaha
So.. Would like to say thank you and goooood eye sight for spotting me on streets without makeup! Wahahahah
Surprisingly... My boyfriend didn't say much.. Guess he loves me too much! Wahahahahha
The first time he saw me without makeup is when I'm sick..
So u can imagine how much more sickly I look..
But he didn't say much.. Still said I'm cute! I guess he really love me a lot and didn't want to aggravate my illness! Wahahahahahahah
On the other hand, whenever I put makeup now.. He will ask ' where you going? What event? Anything on? Etc...'
Well.. That's the life of Kelly without makeup!
But I've never hated my non makeup face before.
Because only with my non makeup face, I can appreciate cosmetics more...
Also, will be able to show girls out there that with hardwork you can definitely be prettier!
That's why I love organizing makeovers. Hahaha
Other that modelling, doing makeup for others is my second passion.
But.. Having said that.... I'm always striving to be prettier..
As one of this year's resolutions, I hope to be pretty even without makeup!
So today I'm going to share what I've been doing recently!
1) exfoliate three times a week
2) putting facial mask daily
3) hakubi c pills
4) latisse for eyelashes growth
5) face yoga
Yes! And hopefully with all these, I will look prettier without makeup at the end of this year.
But I'll definitely miss those funny comments people gave! Just to add, I've never felt insulted or angry when they said that, cause that's the best compliment to my makeup skills!
