Great Guardian Makeover “My Date with Beauty” @ One Utama Shopping Centre

Finally I'm back from Penang for a 4 days media trip, and I can't wait to update my blog. I have a few pending posts currently and I just wish to finish some before I fly to Kuching, Sarawak for FAM trip this Friday. Last few weeks, I was invited to join in the fun of Great Guardian Makeover event at One Utama Shopping Centre. Understanding the value of looking good and feeling great, Guardian, successfully organized the yearly Great Guardian Makeover since 2008.  

最终我从槟城的4天媒体团回来了,我迫不及待地要更新部落客。现在还有几篇未写,我想在飞去砂捞越古晋之前赶一两篇出来。上几个星期我被邀请参与One Utama 购物广场举办的Great Guardian Makeover美妆造型大改造活动。深深了解靓丽造型和感觉美好的佳宁,因此自2008年以来便开始主办这项活动。


18 brands participated in this year’s event. They are: L’Oreal Paris, Maybelline New York, Alcon, Avene, Bio Essence, BioGrow Oat BG22, Biore, Blackmores, Brands, Dermatix, Enchanteur, Hada Labo, Nano White, Neutrogena, Nivea, Oslee, Palmer’s and Safi.

Customers who purchased RM20 and above including one (1) participating brand in a single receipt were entitled to one (1) Makeover Ticket at RM10 to join The Great Guardian Makeover event at One Utama Shopping Centre. Each Makeover Ticket entitled the customer to a makeover session, a photo session and a goody bag. (for goody bag picture check out my instagram @emilytang413)

佳宁顾客只需在单张收据消费RM20及以上,包括购买1款参与活动的品牌,就能以区区RM10购买1张大改造票券,以参加在万达购物中心的‘Great Guardian Makeover’美妆造型大改造活动。每张票券都能让顾客享有一次大改造的机会,同时还可获得一张彩照和一个礼包。(礼包内的礼品照片可以去我的instagram 看看 @emilytang413)





The hair and makeup partner of this event is A Cut Above Academy. A total of 20 hair stylists and make-up artists worked tirelessly, attending to the participants.

A Cut Above Academy 美发学院是上述活动的发型和化妆伙伴。该学院一共派出20位发型设计师和化妆师参与活动,为参与者提供第一手咨询和服务。



Each year, the number of participants grew and enthusiasm and excitement filled the event.

每年,活动现场都会绽放热情洋溢和令人振奋的场面,前来参与的人数更是有增无减。
