“Geek Meets Chic”
In today’s busy society, women have to juggle many different roles and have very little time to focus on beautifying themselves before venturing out into the world. During this panel discussion and “woman-on-the-go” beauty demo, we will touch upon innovative approaches to learning about beauty products and application best practices, e-commerce trends and online resources for women in APAC, including mobile and tablet applications for working-women. During the second half of the event, our beauty experts, stylists and make-up artists will provide live demos on how to beautify on-the-go.
