There are two nights in KL that has everyone out to celebrate – Halloween and New Year’s Eve. Clubs, bars and even the streets are packed with people in high spirits and celebratory gear. You finally get to see the friends who usually pass on a night out, as well as find yourself bumping into others you haven’t seen in a while.

Sadly, that isn’t the case this year with everybody confined to their homes (for the better!). But that doesn’t mean it can’t be celebrated! Dig up your eccentric makeup palettes and get inspired by these mind-blowing looks from some of the most talented makeup artists in town:

👼🏼💀I’m no angel either, baby💀👼🏼 I rarely do skulls but when I do, I wonder why I don’t. It’s such a fun process seeing it slowly come to life with every brushstroke. I used one of @the_wigs_and_makeup_manager many skulls as a reference to make sure I get my placements right, especially the nose!

Make sure to support these local creatives by giving them a follow. Happy Halloween!

This weekend, pop over to Aitch Coffee Roasters in Mutiara Damansara for the very first edition of Ngegeh & Co – a new platform created to support female entrepreneurs through monthly curated events. Featuring Instagram’s fave homemade food and treats from founders Chiq Supply (Chiq Ruslan), Baked With Butter (Naddy Rahman) and Ephrodite (Ellysha Elkany), the pop-up spreads across both days from 12pm to 6pm.

With community support being more important than ever, Ngegeh & Co is building a network of women during this tough time to help their businesses survive and grow. The other vendors include female-owned startups Klean Supply, who sell naturally-fragranced hand sanitisers, and Nood Cosmetics, a vegan makeup brand.

But what does “ngegeh” mean? The Sarawakian term is commonly used to describe women as attention-seeking – a negative stereotype that continues to accuse and even dismiss females for “seeking attention”. Co-founder, Chiq Ruslan, stands up against this blatant sexism, sharing, “We aim to reclaim the world ‘ngegeh’ and change the narrative. We believe all women, including the ‘ngegeh’ ones, can build a name, business and even an empire for herself!”

Show these female entrepreneurs (and your tummy) some love at the sustainable event. If you bring your own tupperwares, bottles and bags – you’ll receive a RM2 discount from all vendors for helping to reduce waste and protect the environment.

Ngegeh & Co Pop-Up Weekend

Date: Saturday, 26 – Sunday, 27 September, 2020

Venue: Aitch Coffee Roasters, Mutiara Damansara

Time: 12pm – 6pm

Follow them on Instagram to stay updated on future events and vendor opportunities!
