Askmewhats Seminar for a Cause Report

Note from Author: Heavy photos. Get your fingers ready to keep on scrollin' :D
Photos watermarked are photographed by my Hubby, photos without watermark are taken from Rhea's hubby Nap. Thanks for the shots, Nap!

At long last! I was able to resize the shots! And here I am telling you what happened to the Askmewhats Seminar for a Cause last January 31st.

I want to give a shoutout of thanks to all my lovely friends who help post about the seminar on their respective blogs and multiply account!

I would also like to thank the So Loverly girls for paying a slot even though they won't be able to attend due to location issue, thanks for the help!!! Kahani and Syen, Love ya girls! And also an Angel out there, you know who you are -- thanks!!!!

And here's a shot of US in the middle of the seminar
It proves we're always ready to take a pose ANYTIME! lol

We started the seminar with getting to know each other. Girls who share the same passion gets to be comfortable with each other in an instant! And I meant "snap your finger" kind of instant :D

We started the seminar with talks about skincare, because that's a very important step to create a good canvass to start make-up application.

Afterwards, we talk about Foundation. Choosing the right shades and we also did foundation application to some of the girls half of their faces.

Please click to enlarge, foundation applied at the left side
(when looking at the photo)

Model: Crystal

We did concealer application as well on areas we want to conceal
Used MUFE palette as requested by the attendee

Applied on the left side of the face
(facing photo)
Model: Gale

We also talked about techniques
on cutting and drawing beautiful brows

Model: Shen

Contouring and Highlighting of course won't be forgotten

And the girls had fun on their own :)
Love it that they're so interactive
Sharing product reviews,
testing on the products they brought

Eye make up!
Everyone's excited to do eye make up
as we all have our own eye looks we want to achieve!

One request on eye makeup application ---
"How to make the eye appear bigger"

And how to enhance naturally beautiful eyes

Full Face Make-up application

Model: Nina
(still young at 19)

We also have discussion on products
Tips to share on how to achieve better looking make-up
We also share the wonderful finds we have :)
A lot of product testing!

(see the make-up they brought along?)

And here are the lovely shots of the attendees
all so pretty both in and out!

Certificates of Appreciation :)

I also want to give a shoutout of thanks to my bestie Hennie, who owns Cosmetique Asia, maker of Silka products. She gave out samples of Silka Papaya soap and lotion and magazines for the ladies!

Another shot this time with Nap (hubby of Rhea)
Who was kind enough to take shots for this event too

I had a great time girls!
Thank you!

And last but not the least,
A special person who supports me all these years.
Keith was there for the event,
he actually took a leave from an important training to be with me on this event,
he knew how important this is for me and he wants the attendees to be well taken care of.
Thank you so much Keith!!! Love you sweetie!

I can't believe I can finish this post! Thanks for reading and for taking part of the special event with me --- Even by reading :) I know you gals out there who are far away but wishes me well!
Thanks for all the support, the love I receive. I can't thank everyone enough!

I told the attendees that I did this event not because I see myself as a "professional" or "a great" make-up artist. I did this event because I love my friends and I would always be ready to extend a helping hand for them. But of course, helping is great if you do it with an open heart. This event opened up my eyes as well, I learned a lot from the girls too!


Now I'm getting mushy :D

But thanks again! Love ya all!!!
Stay Happy!
