L-R May, Pearl and Nikki
The workshop is from 10:00am til 5:00pm, I thought this will be a gruesomely tiring day, but boy was I wrong! It was heart pumping, over-the-top "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" day for me!
The workshop started with talks about Basic skincare, different skintypes and skin problems was raised and it was a room of oilies, normal, combination and dry skin! Yes, we have them all in one room!
The next topic includes Makeup Tools and their uses. Then Cleansing Makeup Tools with a live demonstration was done too!
Choosing the right foundation shade is the next big thing! The students did admit that it is very difficult to purchase their own foundation shade. So there's live demonstration on how to test foundation testers and a lot of tips to save your hard earned money.
Watching the students use their own foundation with the right tools
and application techniques put a huge smile on my face
Color correcting using colored concealers from green, orange, purple etc... I love how they are very conscious with areas they would like to conceal. Common questions like how to hide zits, acne scars, undereye circles were raised in this workshop.

Let's not forget one of the most important basic makeup application, brow shaping! For me, there's no perfect eyebrow for everyone! Eyebrow shaping has to be done with sensitivity on the facial features, the characteristics and preference of each individual. Removing unwanted hairs, using the right tools and trimming long eyebrows are all included in this lesson. See how intense the class is? *hahaha*
Then it was the students' turn to reshape and fill in their brows to frame their faces before they start eye makeup application. Of course, there's also me as the "third person's point of view" to guide them too!
Contouring won't be missed on any makeup workshop! Thanks to Pearl for bringing her projector as it was easier to discuss facial shapes with the dear hubby manually clicking on the next photos!
Live demonstration on how to contour facial shapes and even the nose!
No Makeup Look
Simple Smokey Eyes
Each student was given the chance to create their own smokey eyes with any shade they want
Last but not the least, false lashes application! Everyone "almost" moaned when they heard about applying false lashes on their own! It was a challenging task but one student did it successfully!

I want to thank Dollface for the trust on my teaching capacity and makeup knowledge. To May, her sister, for helping out and for being such a sweetheart! Kallfood for the wonderful lunch and snacks (I swore I added pounds on that day). To Ms. Cats Del Rosario for the wonderful venue and for dropping by for a chat. To Keith, my dearest hubby and photographer for being patient and very supportive! Would you believe the students want me to apply foundation on him too? Of course I didn't! hahaha
And to all the wonderful students who continuously ask questions and shared information and laughed on my jokes which made the class a wonderful and successful event. Without each and every one of you, this workshop won't happen!
That's no Oscar speech by the way, it came from my heart :D
It was a full day's hard work but worth all the time and effort! An added bonus, I've met a couple more new friends too! Aaaahh for the love of beauty...both in and out!
