Kamol recently attended the "Summer Faces Party: French Patisserie" hosted by Siam Paragon, at which she presented new makeup trends by sweetening up the face of young actress Natalie Chiaravanond.
Young celebrities MR Chantornladda Yukala, Sireeporn Yuktatad and Pimvisa and Pichamon Chamanan also came along, there to showcase the latest makeup trends from Laura Mercier, MAC, Paul and Joe, and Smashbox.
These four brands all showed the influence of flowery aspects of spring in their collections. "This season the intensity of hot colours will cool off," says Kamol. "Gals should be using makeup to create a flaw-free porcelain complexion and to nourish the skin. Strong eyeliners or eye shadows won't be so popular. Instead, semi-creamy eyeliners of denim-blue, grey, or chocolate-brown should be used to accentuate attractive eyes."
Kamol notes that there is no fixed rule for lips: "Use whatever colour matches your personal style and dress. Lipstick and lip gloss can bring a very natural look if you choose carefully. 'Pink-nude' is perfect for the season while a brown shade can be cute and warm, too. For a dash of sexiness, add a little shimmering effect with an orange or pink-beige lipstick or gloss - think sweet but sour."
And if you're a confident girl who can't get enough of red, she recommends a sheer and lightly textured red lipstick instead of a matt or creamy one. And for that attention-grabbing clincher, Kamol suggests brushing on a light glitter.
"For this season, 'cheerful' and 'cute' are the looks that are in, but they have to be natural," she says.
Kamol has been following international fashion and makeup trends - but also staying ahead of them with her accurate predictions - for more than 30 years.
"More women are wearing makeup today, and they're actually pretty good at applying it too," she says. "These days, the advances in cosmetics have made choosing what makeup to use an easy and fun process.
"Ever since I was a kid I've enjoyed transforming women's faces with makeup. I'm proud of what I do - it's a job I love. Applying cosmetics well is an art."
