Just Fan filming: Make me up!

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

Last week, this French cable TV programme came down to Singapore to film me for three days for the documentary that they are doing on me! Yes, they are creating a special feature on my passion for motorsports:) It was quite an experience, as the camera followed me all the time and I was getting conscious of how I walked and talked. 


Anyway, it will be broadcast later this year – will ask if I can put it up on YouTube so I can share it with all of you! The point of this post isn’t about the documentary or the filming, but about the wonderful make-up that was done for me over the three days. Seeing me in make-up is a rare occasion right? Maybe once every six months or something… 


Here are the three different looks I had over the three days of filming..


Day 1:




Day 2:



Day 3:


Stunned? You seldom see me in make-up, especially to such extent, hence it came across as a surprise to some of my friends who have known me for a long time but never seen me dolled up like that. 


Who do I have to thank for my beautiful make-up?


Dearest JING!

Oh yes, she has to put on her spectacles when on the job – switching into work mode she says!


I felt very comfortable working with her and I trusted her to doll me up prettily! Over the three days, she recommended different looks for me and I just went along with her suggestions. I’m not familiar with make-up so I just left it in her hands and she didn’t disappoint! :)

I only checked the progress of the make-up after she was done with the entire area, and I couldn’t recognise the pretty face in the mirror! Hahaha sorry if that sounded kinda ‘haolian’ (Hokkien for arrogant) but I was really impressed and pleased with her skills..


Completing the entire package, she also knows how to whip your hair into a fitting style for the look! She puts on this black pouch around her waist and I thought that gives her the professional edge.
