My Beyond Basics Makeup Workshop

Saturday, January 26, 2013

I started doing makeup when i was 13. Internet was not so informative back then so I just used to copy the looks of women in the magazines and learned my own tricks along the away. For 7 years, I owe everything to trial and error, and everyday application of makeup to myself and my friends hoping that it could give me more confidence in myself, and express it better. It was only until 5 years ago that I started attending seminars, workshops and received some kind of training.

Makeup application indeed takes time. It requires knowledge of the tools of the trade, theories of makeup, color, light, some science and art, constant updating of skills but most especially, PRACTICE. I know personally that blogs can really contribute a lot, but nothing beats on-ground training and sharing of experiences from people who have used their hands to perfect makeup for years. As for me, I am actually still attending a lot of seminars held by brands and artists hoping that I can go beyond what i know.

So with the hopes that I can also get to know you better, I am holding my first own makeup workshop!!! I have done some before but mostly I spoke for brands, but now I wanna make it my way: I wanna share what I personally know, what worked for me as a makeup addict, but most importantly, how I go beyond the basics. Below are the details of my workshop, I have received tens of reservations already, and I would like to invite you to join still as well. Register at

I have 5 topics, you can see here 3 of these: Color Theory, Optical Makeup and Perfect Basics.

I wanted to start with the below because that's where you can only go beyond and play with colors, makeup that work well with light, and a lot more. I am though expecting that you have been using makeup (even basic) for this seminar (I am planning on having personal/basic workshops soon as well!)

The workshop will be held at Studio SNR with the images and map below. I knew about this place during my beshie Martha Sta. Barbara of The Beauty Junkee's first meet and greet where I was her guest/assistant/supporter/fan. It's a very professional place for beauty workshops as it has good lighting, materials and support, but also for events as it's so clean and nice in terms of design.

In this event, I would like you to learn and practice (I will try to balance both in the program) but also to have fun and meet new people who have the same interests as us. So to make it more refreshing and sweet, two of my favorites in their industry will be sponsoring us with treats.

Awesome Cobo's newest Strawberry Cream line (review soon!).  I'm so excited to taste more of their Bubble Burst Teas which will be given to all of you!
One of the cutest and artistic brand of cupcakes and sweets catering service, Baker Street, will give us a snack buffet during the workshop!
Also, to help us with more makeup materials and resources, 3 makeup brands will be there! They will also be giving away prizes and a lot of samples and starter products that you can see below.

Everyone will receive a 5-minuted touch up kit by one of my favorite Professional solutions brand, Nippon! Each one's valued at PHP 250 ;)
Also you will get each (or more) of one of the best primers, Base Magique by L'Oreal Paris. Regular size of the product is 15ml so these 5ml's are definitely to go for!  I will do a review soon of this!
More skin care samples by L'Oreal, including a sample of size of the most popular product here in my blog, Lucent Magique.
Some items that we will raffle off!
PAC Cosmetics' sister brand which has great whitening products, Godiva Skin care for giveaways too!
Hope to see you all there! I'm actually quite nervous when speaking to a number of people but I know that this will be good. See you all this weekend because after this I will be at the Bazaar for All Season naman! ;)
