Thanks to the generous use of fragrant herbs such as lemongrass, lime leaves and shallots provide the national aroma of Thailand that makes the Tom Yam Goong (RM18+) taste so good.

I’m glad for the invitation to Kate Summer Beauty Workshop last Sunday at Euro Deli Biergarten, located at ground floor of Gurney Plaza. The normal price for the ticket is RM20/ person and RM30 Kate Voucher, goodie bag and light refreshment will be given out. The workshop was specially conducted by makeup artist, Stevensunny.
Stevensunny is a local and international makeup artist. He does make up for some famous singers and models such as Pussy Cat Dolls, Karen Mok, Adam Lambert, Amber Chia, Carmen Soo and many more. I enjoyed Stevensunny make up session, he was very hillarious and good with his hands. Steven invited one of us to volunteer to be his model. He wanted to show us how to put on the right make up to get the best results. As his magical hands did the work on the face, he explained what he used and the function of each products that he applied.
Starting with cleansing lotion, this product helps to remove make up and cleanse the face. You can go to bed straight after using the cleansing lotion as it consists toner as well. After that Stevensunny applied whitening gel and proceed for make up base. He used brush and tap on the
concealer over the eye lid and on the bottom of the eyes to cover for eye bags. After that he used liquid foundation and compact powder in circular
motion. Next, he blended the whole face with slim crate powder consist of white and brown shades to create realistic three dimensional special effect additions to a character’s makeup.
As he moved his magical hands to the eyes area, he started to apply light color as eye shadow base. After that he used dark color to blend in a pull the shades a bit to behind to make the eye look longer and bigger. After applying the eyes, Stevensunny used 3 types of pencil linear to draw the eyes which were stem gel, gel linear and super sharp linear. He drew a fine line along the edge of the eyelid to fill spaces between eyelashes.
One of the important tools to have is eye lashes curler clip make up to create a lush and glamorous eye look. Clip the eyes with combo of 80, 60 and 40 before you apply for mascara. Kate has this famous black and white mascara bases for a desired finish that cover eyelash problesm. Start the application with the Kate White lash maximizer as mascara base before applying the black mascara to create a natural finish.
Stevensunny believed in the make up products that supplies beautiful make ups and it’s not up to the magical hands. He shared with us his experience in Tokyo where it is considered polite and respectful for men and women to wear makeup. It is part of social manners as they believe it is a respect to themselves and others to look good.
I would like to THANK Kate Summer Beauty Workshop for their valuable session and products. We were given a list of products cost about RM500 to choose. I would love to try out the Kate Mineral Loose Foundation, Kate Powderless Liquid, Kate Lash Maximizer, Kate Super Sharp Linear, Kate Eye Shadow and Kate Eyebrow Color. It is very thoughtful of Kate Summer Beauty Workshop to let us try their products, appreciate it very much!
