Female 50 Gorgeous People + the Gorgeous Makeover

FEMALE 50 Gorgeous People is back; the highly anticipated annual competition that scours for the best-looking taste-makers and individuals. This year's one proves to be one to watch, with familiar faces from the likes of the modeling and entertainment world. 

Here are some of the highlights of a truly exciting competition to come, plus a gorgeous makeover treat for me and my readers, courtesy of FEMALE x MAC Cosmetics.

The Siblings

The brother and sister duo of popular local country folk band Sam Willows are not only talented at making sweet audio love to our ears, but they are a gorgeous pair to boot. With smoldering looks, a strong fan base and a hard-to-resist musician background, Benjamin and Narelle Kheng show us that the apple(s) really doesn't fall far from the tree.

The Love Birds

Easily one of the more recognizable faces on the online shopping-sphere, Melissa Koh is not only the pretty girl next door but also holds bragging rights to a very fine angmoh (caucasian) boyfriend in Jonathan Raedeke. Dating for almost 3 years, it certainly made sense for the love birds to try their hand at 50GP. Interesting to note, last years winners were a couple.... would history repeat itself?

The Blogshop Model Stars

These girls surely need no introduction. If you are half the online shoppaholic that I am, you would definitely recognize them from some of your most loved blogshops and online stores such as Love,Bonito. Beatrice Tan (Left) has been seen on several print and screen advertisements whereas Cordelia Low (right) was 2nd runner up in the Miss Singapore pageant 2013.

The Pedigree

These girls are the ones to watch. Blessed with both beauty and brains, these girls truly set the scene on fire. Left is Natasha Chiam, who left her law degree to pursue her love of cooking. A former Female beauty writer, she is now the proud owner of the Ice Cream & Cookie Co; a gourmet dessert business. On the other hand, Yvette King is no stranger to the limelight: one half of team on reality series The Apartment, this Korean-Aussie beauty has also hosted many prestigious events including the recent Digital Fashion Week 2013.

The finalists' photo exhibition was set in the swanky new JEM mall, and besides checking out who were in the running for this year's competition, FEMALE has also paired up with MAC cosmetics to give express makeovers to some lucky few. 

I was very glad to have been invited to experience it firsthand along with my readers. Here's me all bare-faced... please try not to be too horrified.

The lovely stylists at FEMALE quickly got down to work on the hot mess that was me. With makeup kindly sponsored by MAC, I was given a very demure Korean-esque look that I grew to quite like. :)

While waiting for the ladies, I spied with my little eye one of my all time favourite scent to wear: The Lanvin Éclat d’Arpège. 

The fragrance features refreshing top notes of green lilac and Sicilian lemon, middle notes of green tea leaves, peach blossoms and peonies, before fading into the sweet sensuality of white musk and Lebanese cedar.

This 2013 Limited Edition bottle design created by none other than Alber Elbaz, Lanvin’s iconic Creative Director, to mark his 10th year anniversary with the label, and was inspired by the Capsule Collection “HAPPY”.

Flirty eyes and a red, heart-shaped mouth pout ready to blow a kiss as this little face comes to life on the curve of the bottle, both. Mischievous and adorable. Cool fact: the perfume's signature purple shade is intensified by Plexiglas box which highlights the bottle.

While we may not be in the running, this was perhaps the next best thing...being literally 'GORGEOUS'!
So how do you guys think we look? 

Thank you for having us, FEMALE!
