48 going on 21: How to recreate Fann Wong's beauty looks
The passing of time is just an inevitable fact of life. People age as the years go by, there’s no escaping from this harsh reality…well, unless you are Fann Wong.
It may have been more than two decades since Singaporean actress Fann Wong captured our hearts as Xiao Long Nu in “The Return of the Condor Heroes,” but she could still play the role, looking as youthful now as she did in 1998 .
The celeb mum (she has a four-year-old son together with husband and fellow actor Christopher Lee) who turns 48 on the Jan 27 still maintains the lit-from-within glow she had in her early acting days.
Instead of just admiring her mind-boggling youthfulness from afar, here are some of her stunning youthful makeup looks and tips on how to recreate them.
A v-shaped visage is coveted by many, especially in Asia. Just take a cue from Ah Jie Fann herself.
The v-shaped face shape helps to impart a youthful appearance and accentuates your facial features. This face shape has gotten so popular, many actually go under the knife to achieve the look.
If you’re not quite ready to get a nip and tuck, create the illusion of a slimmer face by contouring your hairline. Doing so would not only help to add definition to the face, it’ll also help to create the illusion of thicker and fuller hair.
You can use an eyeshadow that matches your hair colour and a small fluffy brush to shade all around your hairline.

If you are looking for a fresh new look to welcome 2019 but don’t really want anything too dramatic, follow Fann’s lead and braid your bangs.
This simple hairdo is not only the perfect remedy for a bad hair day, it also makes for a great look for those who are growing out their bangs.
The key to making this look nice and clean is to keep your part in place. To do this, make sure to only add hair from the section around your hairline.Once you are at the temple you can continue to braid the section regularly. Fasten the ends with bobby pins.
Big eyes tend to make you look younger and more awake. If you want brighten up your peepers, borrow a leaf out of Fann’s (beauty) book and apply a highlighter or shimmery light eyeshadow in the inner corner and on the bottom lashes. This helps to amp up your makeup look and help you to look more awake.
While the celeb keeps her eye makeup to a minimum, her brows are full to frame her face. She tends to gravitate towards a straighter brow. If you’re recreating her look, refrain from getting rid of the arch completely.
You can tweeze a couple of strands from the highest tip of the arch for a rounded effect. With a light hand, fill in your brows such that you cancel out the arch. One thing to bear in mind is to use lesser product on the inner corners as it could make your brows look too overdone and unnatural.
The bob hairstyle will never go out of style and for a reason – it works on anyone and everyone because there are so many ways of wearing it. It doesn’t matter if you have fine or thick hair. What’s more, you can customize the cut for your face shape.
You just need to know what style flatters your features best. Here, Fann wears her bob wavy right at the jawline. The airy finish is a sight to behold, though not always easy to recreate – just make sure not to go to heavy handed with your styling products that might weigh the hair down.
To master the “Doppelganger” star’s porcelain “mochi skin” look, you have to commit to a solid skincare routine. This doesn’t mean you need to splash out on an elaborate 10-step routine. Instead, focus on your cleansing your face thoroughly and moisturising your skin.
She first starts off by cleansing her skin twice with the same oil cleanser before gently removing her makeup with a foaming cleanser. Once you have your skincare routine down pat, you can give your face one last glowing touch by lightly dusting your face with an illuminating powder.
Though a pink-toned, rosy nude is usually Fann’s go-to-hue, her bold red lip packs just as much punch, and adds an unexpected, yet elegant, twist. This look transitions easily from day to night so you could go from the office to a party without having to pull out your entire makeup bag.
To achieve this look, you want to prep your lips by exfoliating your lips with a clean toothbrush that will slough away dead skin so the pink colour goes on smoothly. Next, grab a lip liner and outline your lips to prevent bleeding. With a small lip brush, apply a pop of colour to your lips. To really make your pout standout, line the outside of the lip colour with a cream concealer to clean up the edges of the lips.
