Corporate Style Journal – Amanda, architect – ii

To continue our previous chat with Amanda, a young architect who attracted my eyes when I was on a bridal make-up hairstyling work in London last May.  Let’s hear more about her favorite accessories and beauty views.

6.  Can you share with us your favorite accessories which represent yourself?

Any accessories in gold!  My nose stud was made from London (Very subtle but becomes part of Amanda). I sometimes wear very basic pearl earrings and I like lace detail.  (Caroline: Very interesting contrasting elements which create chemistry on Amanda)

And my favorite watch “Arne Jacobsen for Rosendahl”

7.  What’s your key cosmetic/skin care products? Or do you bring anything along with you?

Thick eye line is my favorite and has been evolving to obsessive thicker line after years.  I use “Tony Moly” eye liner.  I prefer bold red opaque lip color and I like Bobbi Brown lipstick for its long lasting effect.   I tone down lip color when I’m with work outfit.  I always use Urban Decay eye primer.  I don’t visit facial salon and simply use pharmacy brand Physiogel for my skin care.

8.  Which is your favorite hair salon? What’s your favorite hair styling products?

Il Copo.  I perm my hair to bring more volume as I wish to slimmer my face, ha ha!  I use “Powerpoint” hair clay on my wet hair and let it air-dry naturally (and lazily) which created the rich texture.  I sometimes use the curling cream from Loreal Professionel

9.  How do you enhance your style? Inspiration source?

I am inspired by architecture, graphic arts.  I love visiting Osage and other galleries in industrial building in Kwun Tong and Wong Chuk Hang.

Charity Make-up Styling – for Human Trafficking awareness


‘Haven’t been so distracted since I’ve makeup styled for more than 14 years, while I brushed on their face at every stroke, while I touched them.  How did they step out from the painful past and darkest days(or years) from human trafficking and severe human rights abuses? They truly shine!!!’~~~Caroline


The portraits of the makeup styling for the 6 strong women from our trip in Cambodia last Aug will be shared with you for the first time.  We will update you the detail of the coming exhibitions in Hong Kong and London.
