CHARMAINE SEAH-ONG, 35 On their relationship… My mum and I see each other at least three or four times a week because she takes care of my daughters, and we’ll have dinner together.
On turning into her mother… My husband says that I’ve inherited my mother’s penchant for nagging and her love of cleanliness. I’ve also begun to fuss about the things she used to fuss about. On having an open heart… From a very young age, my mother has always taught me to be forgiving.
On her hopes for her daughters… I just want them to be kind and happy. On beauty… Be kind and loving, and it will radiate from within.
On the perception of beauty… Stereotypes have been thrown out the window. Anybody can be beautiful.
On her earliest memory of makeup… I would sit and watch my mum get ready to go out. I remember she had all these perfume bottles and compact makeup on her vanity table. On her mum’s best beauty tips… Sunblock is the one thing she’s been nagging about since I was a teenager. That, and drinking lots of water.
