[WORKSHOP] Style on the Go Chic Makeup Workshop for Beginners

01 September 2018 – MPH Group Publishing (MPH) organised the Style on the Go Chic Makeup Workshop for Beginners with Makeup Stylist Sriannaronaliza at Pusat Kreatif Kanak-Kanak Tuanku Bainun. I had the opportunity to participate this amazing workshop together with 14 other lovelies πŸ™‚

The journey to the venue was a little confusing as Waze brought me to another locked entrance to the car park but phew, finally I managed to find the right entrance. I love the place, as they have lots of greenery surrounding the place.

We had the Workshop at Studio 5, a moderate sized room which managed to squeeze all of us in πŸ˜‰ While waiting for the instructor to arrive, the representative of the Sponsor Ayu La Bonita Cosmetics briefed us on the French-inspired brand, Focallure Beauty which we would be using throughout the Workshop.

Yay, the instructor had arrived! She introduced herself as Anna and got each of us to introduce ourselves as well. The Workshop was conducted in two (2) sessions ~ the first session was more on theory, whereby Cikgu Anna showed us how to apply the makeup on the model she brought along; and the second session was the most exciting part – we had to apply what we learned at first session!

Let me show you a short video which I have created so that you can have a clearer picture on the whole session πŸ™‚

Just a simple sharing on the steps:

  1. Base
    This is a important step that ought not to be missed, with a proper base, the makeup will last throughout the day. We were taught to use two (2) types of base ~ firstly, is a spray to moisturize and prepare our skin for better absorption; and secondly, is the primer base, which is basically, a tinted moisturizer.
  2. Concealer
    Dark circles, dark spots, fine lines, amongst others, are the common areas we want to hide as much as possible and with the right concealer, need I say more? πŸ™‚
  3. Foundation (Liquid)
    For my skin tone, I need to mix 01 and 02 to get a shade that is close to my skin tone. We were advised to use a mixing palette; alternatively, just mix it with our hand because our body is warm and has a certain degree of “heat”. At this stage, we also added “Illuminator” for a glowing effect. We used a big brush to even out the application before we blend it with a sponge.
  4. Contour
    This is useful for me as I have a flat nose, not so high cheekbones and big jawline. By applying “Coffee Code 03” Contour on my nose bridge, cheekbones, jaw and forehead, magic is done! πŸ™‚
  5. Cream Blusher
    We dab (do not rub) the cream blusher and blended with sponge πŸ™‚
  6. Powder
    We applied loose powder followed by compact powder with a brush to set the face makeup.
  7. Eye
    “Eyes are the windows to the soul”. Firstly, draw the eyebrow with pencil and filled up with powder. Next, is to apply eye shadow followed by eyeliner. Lastly, which is also the most tricky part ~ applying the fake eyelashes! To complete the look, apply more eyeliner and then apply mascara and ta-daa ~ you will have eyes that can “talk”.
  8. Powder Blusher
    Apply powder blusher of similar shade as the cream blusher with a brush.
  9. Lips
    Draw lips with lip liner before applying lipstick.

The model’s final look! Whoa, that is so amazing right? πŸ™‚

Ta-daa, this was my final look! I did not complete the full set as I had another appointment that day, so I wanted a more natural look and yes, I was satisfied with the results!

We love long lasting makeup, and take a look, this picture was taken about seven (7) hours after the Workshop and I still look good, right?

We had a great session and it felt good to interact with other participants as well. The instructor was friendly and helpful throughout the practical session; she went around the room helping us to do some touch-ups and made sure we were hands-on so that we could apply what we have learned more effectively.

There was a short 10-minutes break after the first session, MPH was generous to provide us varieties of food and drinks. I was quite hungry so did not manage to snap any photos, hehe πŸ˜„

We did not leave empty handed. Have a look at the goodies that we took with us and there was a certificate too! All of us left the place with smiles on our faces!

The final group photo together with our certificates! Take a look at all of us, we look so pretty now! As Bobbi Brown quoted ~ “I believe that all women are pretty without make up – but with the right make up can be pretty powerful”
