Shevoune Lim has found her passion and calling to the artistry of make-up and hair styling. She is based in Melbourne at the moment. Her work is shown off on the ‘Stilleto Hair and Makeup’ Facebook page. Laila from Prestige Cheer modeled on a short photo shoot session showcasing Shevoune’s make-up work.
Knowing that Australia’s moving into Cheerleading Competition Season, Shevoune came up with the idea of a Cheerleading design, makeup application and hair style. Most cheerleaders use a lot of glitter on the eyes to get the ‘vibrant sparkly’ look on stage. The eye makeup that she has designed matches Prestige Cheerleading uniform. BenNye concealer palate concealed Laila’s skin imperfections and Kryolan foundation NB 1 and NB2 was used to match Laila’s skin colour, then set with Cinema Secret translucent powder. Next, contouring with Napoleon along her cheek hollow, highlighting on the top of cheek bone, T-zone and brow bone to enhance and define features. In addition, using Napoleon blusher, gives the cheek a rosy colour, then defining the eyebrows with brown shadow. Kryolan Aquacolour for the eyes using UV green and UV blue produces the vibrant eye colour, set it with similar colour eyeshadow and blend them together so it doesn’t leave any harsh lines. Using MAC gel liner to define the eyes and same eyeshadow below the eyes give more colour. Laila’s eyes were enhanced with fake lashes and mascara-ed from Graftobian. Lip colour was a mix of Graftobian and Napoleon lip gloss.

Her work is shown off on the ‘Stilleto Hair and Makeup’ Facebook page. Sarah Oh modeled on a short photo shoot session showcasing Shevoune’s make-up work. She has used a few different makeup product brands from Kyrolan, Napoleon, MAC, Ben Nye, CRC and Cinema Secrets. The inspiration and idea came from a few different fashion labels’ look trends with the aim of creating a smart casual, elegant and trendy feel to suit chilling with friends to heading out for special occasions and even being dressed smart casual for the office!
Another Sunday Afternoon is Caleb Lye (Guitar/Keyboard/Vocals), Xu Zhiwei (Drums) and Kamal Yacob (Bass Guitar). The popular, local Singaporean-based band is heavily influenced by Death Cab for Cutie, Foo Fighters and Manic Street Preachers, bringing its own brand of alternative pop/rock to the table. They have been widely covered by the Singaporean media over the years. Perhaps one of the things that sets Another Sunday Afternoon apart from most bands is their attention to lyrical detail. There is an almost-obsessive streak to create the perfect story, and back that up with a melody that worms its way into your consciousness, weaving into your heart, one song at a time. If the question were whether a story or a melody is more important, the Another Sunday Afternoon answer would be that bridging that dichotomy is the key to creating unforgettable music.
Their debut album, quirkily named ‘The Uncanny Tree of Fractured Hearts: featuring the Peculiar Case of Janet Leno and other short stories’ (2009) was a collection of love songs. The album detailed the heart’s journey of falling in love, out of love and sinking into the depths of despair.
In 2012, the band released “The Bookmark”, a collection of darker and edgier songs, while still maintaining that signature whimsical Another Sunday Afternoon sound.
“Love has always been the easiest thing to relate to, and perhaps the most natural thing to write about since it is in our very fabric to love”, quips frontman Caleb Lye. “On ‘The Bookmark’ though, we felt it was necessary to get out of our comfort zones. There are songs about love, life and discontent – hopefully a little something for everybody who listens. We’ve even gone out and done an Another Sunday Afternoon-styled Christmas song!”
‘The Bookmark’ CD is available at HMV. It can be digitally purchased from iTunes and Bandcamp
Another Sunday Afternoon performed live at Singapore’s Home Club (Clarke Quay – 20 Upper Circular Road, #B1-01/06 The Riverwalk) with special guest band, Victoria Street.
With his trademark cotton cap, Choo Git Man or GM Choo is an artist who simply thrives in his works and none other than batik paintings. Having lived in Terengganu for almost 30 years, it’s little wonder that he has been strongly influenced by the richness of this traditional and unique art form, a heritage of Malaysia.
As he sits and paints on the easels along the walk-way fronting his gallery, he invites all to see and marvel at his craft. At 71, Choo is absolutely absorbed in his own art world. Though, a late starter, he has today caught up with lost time and wields his brushes like a magical wand. Art is his ‘love, hobby and business’ rolled into one which he approaches with no appologies and does full-time in his own passive ways.
Using oil, acrylic, water colour and mixed media, Choo paints a variety of subjects from landscape, ‘koi’ fish, and abstracts but clearly favours painting the lucky ‘kois’ as evident from the displays in his gallery.
“I also conduct batik art painting demonstrations as I want to promote this aspect of our traditional art. It’s a fine technique but once you have learned the basics, you can eventually master it but of course you must have patience and the desire to constantly learn and improve,” he says smilingly.
His works have lined the walls of many hotels and also of private collectors but nothing pleases him more than to see the men in the street admiring his paintings.
The GM Choo Art Gallery is located at 53 – 54 Jalan Tokong, Melaka – right next door to Cheng Hoon Teng Temple.
David is based in Melbourne and is semi-retired which makes him available most times for his talent and acting roles. He needed some updated profile photos, so, we set up a quick casual shoot. David is represented by Azure Management and his profile can also be viewed at www.starnow.com.au/davidhart7. He has had a lot of experience across diverse industries gained from various jobs including being a prisoner officer, soldier, truck driver and window dresser, to name a few. Being relatively new to the film and media industry, he has been fortunate thus far to have worked on many projects including his recent regular role on Wentworth – speaking to the cast about his experience as a prison officer during pre-production, and advising during taping. He is keen to take part in any production to gain more experience in roles that are suitable.
Originally hailing from Singapore, DJ Mona Gene was mentored and guided by local Singaporean DJ guru, DJ James T (Director/Owner of DancenMusic Academy). In his relatively short time in the industry, he has already been around and rocked clubs in Singapore, Malaysia and even the Philippines. Now, he is a resident DJ for La Vida Fridays @ Seven every week with his clean and unique style of mashups and commercial club bangers.
Quickly moving up in the nightclub scene and making quite a name for himself, we decided to get a photo shoot session happening for all his upcoming marketing material and social media site updates. Don’t be surprised if you see him around!
DJ Donnie always has the dance floor going at all the venues that he DJs at, whether it be in Thailand or his home-base in Melbourne! With such a high profile, it’s quite obvious that he needs photos for all his marketing material. Here are some of the photos from our photo session which was full of jokes and laughs.
