My growing up years were nothing but a nightmare. I was average in my studies, scrawny and akward looking. I was terribly skinny and had no sense of style. And for that, my classmates called me ‘Lizard’. Children and teenagers can be so cruel. I hated it, but I was really young and naive and did nothing to improve how I look to stop their verbal bullying. Fast forward to my adulthood, I still did not care on how I present myself to the world until something really huge happened to me, making me realize that the world is really superficial and life is much easier and better when you look pretty. I know I sound vain, but hey, let’s admit it that’s how the world works. Being pleasant looking has it’s advantage and you can actually use it as a leverage for many things.
I’m now a believer in making good first impression and is constantly looking for a way to not only improve my looks but knowledge as well. I don’t believe in being in my comfort zone. Not anymore.
Anyway, speaking of presenting myself well and improving my knowledge, I was recently invited to participate in Fashion and Styling Workshop with Influencers at Resorts World Genting. It was a workshop jointly organized by Resorts World Genting and Sephora, Esprit and Thomas Sabo where demonstration and talks on how to dress up and whatnot is given to participants. I’ll be honest with you. I don’t really like workshops. My past experience participating in workshops are nothing but boring, but being a little vainpot, I said yes to the invitation, while keeping my finger crossed that this time around, I won’t fall asleep listening to presenter’s speech. And I’m glad I said yes to the invitation. As the workshop was definitely not boring, but really fun.
Upon arrival at Resorts World Genting,we were immediately taken to the newly opened SEPHORA boutique at Level 2 of SKYAVENUE shopping mall for a quick makeover. Yes. All participants were given a quick makeover.
SEPHORA is no stranger to ladies and makeup addicts. Founded by Dominique Mandonnaud in 1970 in France, SEPHORA is the leading one-stop center for those who are obsessed with beauty products. SEPHORA offers extensive range of premium quality skincare and makeup products at a very reasonable price.
The purpose of our visit here is to learn basic makeup and grooming techniques by using products sold in this outlet in 15 minutes. The makeup and grooming session did not only focused on ladies only, but the gentlemen as well.
I don’t usually walk around without wearing any makeup on my face these days, but in order to get a makeover, I was required to have a clean face for my makeup artist to work on.
Here’s getting a makeover at SEPHORA. I was given quick tips on how to put on makeup and stuff and to create different looks by using just basic cosmetics like lipticks and blusher.

I kinda like the end result. I looked much more energetic and cheerful and ready to take on anything instead of looking tired and plain.

After the quick makeover, it’s time to learn how to style it up with ESPRIT and THOMAS SABO.
ESPRIT is a famous fashion brand that has long been established in Malaysia. The one in SkyAvenue is newly opened and is located at Level 3 of the mall. Founded in San Francisco by Susie and Doug Tompkins, ESPRIT provides a wide selection of latest styles from top to toes for all walks of life. During the session, were given tips on how to mix and match our clothings and how to create interesting but classy looks with ESPRIT line of clothing.
The next presentation was from THOMAS SABO, where we were taught on how to pair accessories with our clothings. THOMAS SABO was initially developed in Germany and this jewelry brand were spread across Europe side and the United States in initial years and now, we have plenty in Malaysia too, the latest being in the newly opened SkyAvenue in Resorts World Genting.
Influencers were taught how to accessorize.

There’s not much nonsense babbling by presenters but more hands on for participants instead, and if anything, I believe I learned quite a few new tricks in grooming myself from this workshop alone.
Thank you Resorts World Genting for the inspirational styling workshop. It was really a great experience.
