You’ve Got The Look

Putting on the glitz with L’Oréal Pro­fes­sion­nel and Ur­ban De­cay


To look our best for Thai­land Tatler’s Lus­trous Pearlthemed 26th An­niver­sary Ball, we put our­selves into the ca­pa­ble hands of Ur­ban De­cay and L’Oréal Pro­fes­sion­nel. What does it take to cre­ate a com­plex­ion that re­sem­bles strong, re­silient and iri­des­cent pearls? Thi­tiphan Viriya­jit, train­ing and field su­per­vi­sor at Ur­ban De­cay, and Thanikorn Se­tas­sawakul, technical man­ager at L’Oréal Pro­fes­sion­nel, tack­led the theme per­fectly.

Thi­tiphan notes that trends for this sea­son’s hottest looks em­pha­size earth-tone eye­shad­ows and beau­ti­ful, nat­u­ral-look­ing skin. ‘Heat’, one of Ur­ban De­cay’s four Naked eye pal­ettes, hints at a cer­tain he­do­nis­tic vibe and the makeup artist ex­plains it is per­fect for cre­at­ing a nude, dewy look with pops of glit­ter. The pal­ette fea­tures a range of matte and shim­mer tex­tures, equip­ping you to have lots of fun with your

ap­pear­ance. The high points of the face are high­lighted with the Shapeshifter con­tour pal­ette to achieve a nacre­ous and shim­mery di­men­sion, while Ur­ban De­cay’s ‘pig­ment in­fu­sion sys­tem’ en­sures that the prod­uct lasts through­out a daz­zling night.

To com­plete the look, Thanikorn steps in to sculpt hair to per­fec­tion. Ac­cord­ing to the ex­pert, the cur­rent—in­deed time­less—hair­style trend is bal­ayage, with the prin­ci­pal idea be­ing that less is more. Bal­ayage al­lows for sun-kissed, ef­fort­less hair colour to suit the life­styles of to­day’s strong, de­ter­mined women. The ex­pert also ad­vises us to em­brace L’Oréal Pro­fes­sion­nel’s nude beige ton­ing prod­uct to can­cel out yel­low tones in colourtreated hair. To com­ple­ment the evening’s Lus­trous Pearl theme, Thanikorn and his team fo­cus on vo­lu­mi­nous, satiny and healthy-look­ing hair. To achieve ocean-dipped and pearl-glazed locks, a prod­uct called Smart­bond is ap­plied to strengthen and pro­tect hair fi­bres. This is in keep­ing with L’Oréal Pro­fes­sion­nel’s phi­los­o­phy of pro­mot­ing healthy hair that en­dures.

Be­hind every dash­ing and el­e­gant party-goer are hours of com­plete sub­mis­sion to the imag­i­na­tion of make-up artists and hair­styl­ists. Their glam­orous, charis­matic mess of ideas—once exquisitely crafted into the per­fect look—make the wait worth­while.

STYLE COUN­SEL Per­fect hair and make-up take time, but the end re­sult is worth it
