Attending Star Awards 2014 with L'Oreal Paris

First of all, I apologize for the low quality photos. These were shot on my trusty but rusty old camera, my Olympus EPL1, that has been with me for more than two years and it's high time that it retire. It will be replaced with a Canon 100D instead, which I've just bought!

I was fortunate to be invited to the Mediacorp 20th Star Awards, which is an annual event where our local screen stars dress up, walk the red carpet and mimic the Academy Awards receive category awards for their works. I thought that the occasion would be nice for me to bring my Raoul evening dress out for a spin - poor thing has not seen the light of day since I acquired it two years ago.

I especially love how this light shade of seafoam green complements my skin tone and that it is very subtly glamorous. Fashioned entirely from silk, with no embroidery or embellishments, the magic of this dress lies in its details. The front has a low-cut keyhole to reveal just a tiny silver of skin, which the back is cleverly knotted into a low-back cut. To me, that is a winning red carpet look - not ostentatious, but very sophisticated.

Hair and makeup was DIY with L'Oreal Paris makeup and L'Oreal Professionel hair products. I especially love the L'Oreal Telescopic Precision Liquid Eyeliner as the tip is so fine that it allows me to rich the inner corner of my eyes easily. The L'Oreal Professionel root lifting mousse was then applied to the crown and bottom roots of my hair with a blowout for some volume at the roots.

I didn't manage to catch Rui En up close but I loved her look for the night! Rui En won the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes award that night and it's no wonder why! She had always been very sophisticated and elegant, but also warm to her friends and fans. When Chen Liping won the Best Actress Award, she stood up, hugged her, and looked so genuinely happy that you'd thought she had won the award instead.

For the night, she was wearing a long gown by Romona Keveza, cinched at the waist with a metallic gold belt. She kept her makeup done by L'Oreal Paris rather simple as compared to what some of the other celebrities were wearing, and you can easily copy her look above! Hair was done up in loose waves and swept to the side and she looks absolutely glowing! I hardly watch TV, much less local programmes, but I guess I'm kind of converted now.
