Stephy Make up Tips

Stephy uses very natural colours and keeps her make up very minimal, she does not need much make up because she is already a natural beauty! to copy her look we are going to be thinking of very nude and natural shades for example pinks and beige. to achieve this look, clear complexion is vital, follow these steps to achieve her look!

To create this look:

1. Use blotting sheets that take away excess oil from your face, try MAC oil blotting tissues, £7.50.

2. Then apply concealer gently on your face with Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer kit £24 which has a concealer on top and loose powder in a neat jar. Apply this with Bobbi Brown Make-up sponge £5 each. Dribble a blob of foundation on to the back of your left hand (right if you are left handed) and dip sponge on to it. Press the sponge on to your skin then roll it to blend (don't wipe!). Press and roll, press and roll, starting in the centre of your face- nose, chin and between your brows. Cover your eyelids and sockets but leave outr eyes clean or lines may form. Lighten your touch as you work outwards to aviod the dreaded make-up mask look. This will give your face a flawless look which is needed to create this look.

3.For the eyes, apply a light touch of Shu Uemura custom eye shadow palette, £55.50 which consists of different shades of pinks, if you are on a budget, try using Almay stay smooth anti-crease eyeshadow in sugar plum/ Biotherm Play on eyeshadow(No. 310)/ Red earth sorbet cheek (No.pk004) or Maybelline Mono eyeshadow (no.12). Do not apply pink over the crese line of your eyelid, what you could do is to apply a shimmery silvery light pink shadow over it. Using a eyelash curler, curl your lashes on both eyes, making sure you have caught each and every eyelash, then use Mabelline Lash discovery mini-brush mascara on your eyelashes. To finish off this look, line the bottom of your eyes with a soft grey eyeliner.

4. Stephy has applied pink blusher dirrectly in the centre of each cheek, so basiclly apply blusher (Ettusais Face colour No. pk3) with a blusher brush.

5. For the lips, apply a cherry red lipstick. Smudge a small ammount of lipstick onto the centre of the lips then using a lip brush spread aroungd the lip covering the lip, then apply a little gloss over the top for shine.

Nine Girls and a Ghost

"Whaddya mean we'll never work again?"             "Oh crap! It's the media!"

 

Year: 2002

Director: Chung Shu-Kai

Producer: Raymond Wong Bak-Ming, Simon Lui Yu-Yeung, Philip Chan Yan-Kin, Peter Chan Chi-Keung

Cast: Edison Chen, Stephy Tang Lai-Yun, Miki Yeung, Theresa Fu, Helena Ma, Serena Po, Angela Au, Kary Ng, Elaine Ho, Gloria Chan, Cyrus Wong Ka-Ming, Tats Lau Yi-Tat, Philip Chan Yan-Kin, Lee Fung, Chapman To Man-Chat, Amanda Lee Wai-Man

The Skinny: Teenybopper fluff for teenyboppers. Yeah, this is not a good movie. Yeah, teenage girls and boys probably thought it was pretty damn good. It's all relative.

Review: Okay, we can do this the easy way or the hard way.

The easy way: Nine Girls and a Ghost is made-to-order fluff for its target audience. Screaming teens who dig Edison Chen and the nine girl members of Cookies will probably go wild over the canned platitudes and generally pleasant giggles on display here. Nothing really challenging happens, and that's just the way they like it. The thirteen year-old in me stayed awake and only talked on my cell phone once.

The hard way: This is cinematic regurgitation from the braintrust of Mandarin Films. Head honcho Raymond Wong didn't have to dig too deep for the premise of this film; it was used umpteen years ago in his popular Happy Ghost series. The concept was cheap and cheesy then; it's cheap and cheesy now. Actual filmmaking was probably banned from the set, and anybody with an original idea was beaten before being summarily fired. The thirty year-old in me was mildly amused for forty-five minutes, after which a numbness washed over me that might have been the first stages of brain atrophy. I welcomed the sensation.

Maligned pretty boy Edison Chen stars as the titular ghost, who comes into the life of Kaka (lead Cookie Stephy Tang) when she recieves a Mini Cooper which previously belonged to him. At first his spirit is confined to her car, but before the film can become Edison Chen is The Love Bug, a mass of bubbles shoots out the tailpipe and coalesces into Chen's magnificent form. Girls swoon, and the sound of creaking wood can be heard. Kaka is frightened at first, since her brother Evans (Cyrus Wong) warned her that the car was haunted. Luckily, he's cute; she falls for her new spectral buddy immediately.

However, the Ghost has other plusses. Aside from being mega-hot, he also has powers which enable Kaka to rule the world, or in this case, her high school. She and her group of eight pals need help to cheat on their exams and, more importantly, trounce their rivals during intraschool athletic tournaments. The nine girls call themselves The Cookies, which could rate as the most original thing in this film. Another good name for them would be Lazy and Annoying Cookies. Teenage girls might wish for better media representation; they're portrayed here as generally insensitive, materialistic whiners who only care for their pet hobbies. Each Cookie has a "thing" which defines them: food, fighting, the stock market, cleanliness, makeup, wacky Chinese medicine or something else. Since Kaka is the main Cookie, her specialty is looking adorable despite questionable acting ability.

Up to this point, Nine Girls and a Ghost actually manages some form of fluffy amusement. The dialogue and acting are average-to-nonexistent, and nothing of import happens. Then again, some of the sitcom setup is winning in that Disney Sunday Movie-type way. Watching Kaka use her ghost-given powers to pull off Shaolin Soccer-type moves on the basketball court can be amusing (even though the SFX are mighty fake-looking). It's also a welcome event to have Edison Chen mope around in a film without calling anyone "dog." This isn't Johnnie To, but it's not offensive either.

Then, one hour in, things start to get worse. First, there's a wacky time-out for a Cookies musical number, which is great for fans of Cookies, but probably torture for those who are not. Then there's the appearance of life lessons which were designed by adults to make their children better people, or at least get them to clean up their rooms. Either way, the film urges its teenage audience to care for others, actually try once in a while, and stop cheating on their exams. Minor romance gets found, victory is won through actual effort, and the selfish cute girls drop the "selfish" tag just in time to bid Edison Chen a teary farewell. This is the textbook definition of easy-to-please cinema.

Which is why it's hard to really knock Nine Girls and a Ghost for being anything other than what it is: made-to-order fluff. Really, it's impossible to review a film like this because it's designed to please just its target audience and not everyone else. I happen to be in the "everyone else." I don't know the Cookies, Edison Chen reminds me of my younger cousin before he got his act together, and the canned exploits of evil high school girls are as interesting to me as whale spit.

But the movie also has what counts: cute girls, cute guy, easy-to-digest pathos and an amiable production which fits the people who probably buy the Cookies' albums. Those who desire to check out Nine Girls and a Ghost will get exactly what they expect, which is likely what they want. A guy like me? I get to exercise my brain trying to figure out which Cookie is which, and I get to wonder which Cookie is singing at what time. I also get to wonder if Edison Chen is really such a bad choice for the lead in the proposed Initial D movie (honestly, he might be OK as Takumi Fujiwara), and I get yet another chance to see Tats Lau, Amanda Lee and Chapman To (who was in every other film in 2002). And I get the chance to load a movie review with wall-to-wall witticisms which may amuse or anger. This movie is what it is, which isn't too hard to figure out. As for whether it's really any good, the answer pretty much depends on who you are. It's all relative. (Kozo 2003)
