Celebrating Nuffnang’s 6th Birthday Bash With 60’s Makeup And Purple Hair



Happy 6th birthday Nuffnang! I missed out on last year’s birthday bash as I became part of the Nuffnang family just right after the bash so I was extremely excited to be able to make it this time!


It came with a theme! Any party/gathering/outing that is tagged with a theme ups the game for me. I LOVE THEMED PARTIES! That’s why Halloween is my favorite festival! It’s one of the few times of the year where outrageous is legitimate and welcomed.

The theme was Retro 60’s. How fun! I’ve somehow never been part of a retro-themed party before – Shanghai checked, Uniform checked, Pyjamas checked, Color-coded checked… woah so many I can’t remember! Apart from the time where I totally went against the blue-white themed party at NuffnangX’s launch because I forgot there was a theme LOL, I’ve always put in effort to look the part for themed parties. 😀

I decided to have one focal point; the hair was the defining factor. 60’s hair was bold, poofy, wild, and girls loved to accessorize with ribbons and hairbands.


Where else to go get the best effect other than Salon Vim Bugis? This was how I looked prior to the hair teasing, pinning, spraying, styling. Why my cheeks so chubby?? ( O.O )


My usual hairstylist, Weng, was busy so he got Tar to do my hair. I showed Tar some pictures of the look I wanted and Tar did a fantastic job! She said “I like doing this kind of hairstyle because in Thailand the girls like to go out and party and they always go salon to do their hair”. Haha! Tar is from Thailand and it’s my fortune but everyone’s bummer that it was her last day! She left to go make babies. :)


No bumpits were used to create the bump. Just pure teasing and crimping and spraying and styling. Must’ve used up half a can of hairspray. =O

Very nice right!!! I still had my straight-down bangs and Tar suggested I have side-swept bangs instead.




And this was my retro 60’s-inspired makeup for the night.


I decided to keep the eye makeup really simple, no intense contouring, very few colors used, all gentle shades, but upper and lower false eyelashes. I rarely wear false eyelashes because they make me feel SLEEPY. Haha! I don’t know why! I just prefer to go without, unless I need to dress up for an occasion.

I also drew on a bit of a Mod eye makeup, a makeup trend prevalent in the 60s, which sports a very harsh crease to create the illusion of a vertically wide lid. You can see from the previous picture in which I was looking down a more obvious crease

It’s my first time applying false lower lashes too and I think I could have done a better job. When I pasted it lower than the lower lash line, my super puffy eyebags kept getting in the way. When I blinked, the falsies would flip up. WHAT IS THIS?!! Lol! Must work on it!


After about an hour in the salon, I was done!

MY NAME IS MOJO JOJO!!! Bahahaha!!

About Bun Bun

Hello! My name is Juli and Bun Bun is my alter-ego. I blog to share my love for makeup, how to apply it, and what works or what doesn’t work, all from an Asian perspective.

My first makeup product was a shimmery light blue lipstick which I proudly wore all over my eyelids and lips. It cost $2.50, felt like $250, and made me feel like a million bucks.

    Hi, I stumbled onto your blog while looking for tips on Asian eye makeup. I ended up staying up hours reading your make-up tips and reviews. I’ve read many make-up blogs that are either too professional or childish, while some are helpful, I couldn’t really bring myself to buy into their tips. That said, I love that you’re keeping it real and transparent about your process, and how many of your fav products are found through trial and error. I also love that you include drug-store products and some of them are in your regular make-up routine because seriously, not all of us can afford $1000 worth of make-up supplies. Am I right? 😉 Anyway, I just want to let you know that your tutorials and reviews are awesome, keep doing what you’re doing!

    • BunBunMakeupTips

      kyingli Awwww thank you for staying with me and appreciating all my work! It really means a lot to me! *hugs* I’m so happy my articles speak to you and feel honored to receive your trust in my reviews.
      Yes, no person should shell out $1000 worth of makeup ‘just to see what works’. Lol. I started reading blogs and now am grateful to have my own platform to share my views on products, and share makeup tips and tricks. =)
      Couldn’t have kept going strong without the support of my loyal readers, and knowing there are new readers to my blog really makes blogging such a joy. So, thank you very much! ^_^*

      CarolineR Thanks Caroline! Many people have commented that purple hair suits me well so I’m gonna keep it in shades of purple for a while. Heh. Singapore’s REALLY HOT this time of the year. Gosh, I’m perspiring even though I just came out from a cold shower. 0.0″ Thanks for stopping by my blog! =D

    Purple hairs look so beautiful and give an attractive look to girls. There are many beauty salons that provide best treatment for hairs and face and help customers to get beauty with permanent makeup.
