AMW Reports: It's the Most Glamorous Time of the Year with Benefit and Rustans

Happy Monday AMW Friends!  Ahhh, I had a lovely busy weekend (as always).  And before the month of November ends, I want to share some of the exciting things that happened to me this month!  Well 2 exciting events in a day --- can you believe how lucky I was?

Benefit Cosmetics Philippines contacted me again to be their guest Makeup Artist last November 20, 3013 at the Rustans Makati counter.  I was tasked to do 2 workshops sharing hottest tips and tricks for the holiday, it was an invitation I can't resist...

I mean, who can say no if you get the chance to play around with makeup?  That doesn't feel like work at all!

It was a weekday so I'm happy there were still participants who joined!  I had fun whipping out my magic wand..ahem..brush...

For an hour and a half, participants learned concealing techniques, foundation application tips and a whole lot more!

My best tip of the day?  Using dark powder foundation as a contour powder!  It works every time!

Different blush techniques were also shared depending on the individuals' face shapes.

Then a quick transformation from day to night  look was done in less than a minute!
Thanks to Benefit's gorgeous model Donna Shaw for being my uber hip and fun partner in crime!

Not for the shaky hands:  Liquid liner application.  If you can't beat 'em, there's always pencil liners! :P
 I also shared tips on how to make your eye pencil stay smudge-proof amidst the crazy humid weather!

This was a photo of the first batch!  Thanks to a Benegal for helping me take these awesome photos!  She was busy on my 2nd workshop so I didn't get any photos on Workshop number 2 but these are enough for me to be reminded on how lucky I am to be able to do the things I love to do!  I had fun sharing beauty tips with girls who are into makeup as much as I do!

By the way, if you plan to purchase Benefit cosmetics this Christmas, I highly recommend these Holiday kits!  I personally recommend them to clients that day as they are worth every single penny!  Imagine, aside from getting your usual Benefit Favorites, you also get a lovely reusable can, I plan to store my makeup brushes here or probably my nail art pens!  I got the Primed for Lovin' by the way as I can't get enough of Porefessional.

Aside from a lovely event at Benefit, it was Rustans' special day as they launch the newly revamped Rustans Makati Cosmetics Floor.  Aside from that, they also created a KISS OF GOODWILL wall to help out Yolanda Victims! 

A Php100.00 donation will be donated by Rustans to Red Cross Philippines for every kiss mark, this will be for our brothers and sisters who suffered during Typhoon Yolanda.

And the gorgeous girls also gave their lovely kiss marks --- Donna Shaw from Benefit, Julia Arenas of BlessmyBag and Jane Kingsu Lucky Janie.

I had a lovely time last week!
How about you?  What's unforgettable for you last week?
Have a great day!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
