Since I was talking about Personality Development in my recent post, I thought I should key in more blog posts about this topic, especially when I have an upcoming entry about makeup!
Yes makeup! OMG!
I was never a good makeup artist. I just know I have to always look presentable, especially when facing clients, and whenever I have to train a class. With the limited talent I have with brushes and blushes, I have to do everything on my own! Imagine my mini heart attacks during events!
Anyway, I have also seen a video depicting the differences between Western and Korean’s style in putting makeup. And I wondered which one is more suitable to my face type.
According to that video, basically, Western Makeup Style looks mature, glamorous, glittery, edgy and often makes someone really look like a movie star.
While Korean Makeup Style appears youthful, glowy, sweet, innocent, and most of the time appears very delicate.
With today’s workshop though, I think I will do a Western look.
That is why it was so timely when I had the chance to join Ms. Lexie Panaligan’s free makeup tutorial!
I was giddy I cannot wait to go!
It was held in Komunidad Filipino Cuisine Restaurant in Antipolo City, and in there Ms. Lexie taught us the basics of doing our own makeup. Here is the guide on which cosmetic/product we should put first before the other. Arranged ordinally are the following:
- Eye Cream
- Primer (at the T-zone)
- CC Cream
- Concealer (Under eyes)
- Translucent Powder
- Eye Shadow
- Eye Curler / Curlash
- Mascara (One dip should be enough for both lashes)
- Bronzer and Blush
- Concelear (Under the eyes. Again.)
- Lip Color (Lipliners and glosses are optional.)
But if you have braces like me, best way to toss glosses for the meantime. Metals and extra glitters will only create a greasy look, like it’s too busy and that there are so many things going on in one little bodypart!
We used Mary Kay products, and actually it’s my first time to use them. I particularly adore the foundation, because it felt so light in the face. Their matte lipstick was so rich in color as well!
The key takeaway for me was doing the eyebrows!
I am sooo envious on how others really master the craft of creating the perfect brows, that is why when I learned that all you essentially need, the first and foremost is a good makeup brush.
So here is my finished look!
You can achieve that dark to light effect color from your brow bone towards the area where your 2 eyebrows meet, by swiftly gliding your brush from the middle towards the ‘meet-up place’. In that way you only spread lighter shades, not making them look like some stickers plastered above your eyes.
I also got to take home a Mary Kay Eye Brow Liner. Thanks so much! 🙂
Komunidad food was great as well; I didn’t know this junction offer such great meals!
So thanks to this, no more brow-horrors for me! And I think that’s so sexy!
By the way, you can find Ms. Lexie Panaligan in her page Must Be Lexie to know more about makeup tips and tutorial schedules!
Have you joined any make up workshops? What was your key takeaway? 🙂
