Hello! Happy Monday! I'm back after a brief hiatus. Anyhow, yesterday was super productive. I finally received a certification of some sort to be at least adept to do my own makeup. Thanks to my first-ever purchase from Deal Grocer, I indulged to a much needed 7-Hour Personal Make-Up Artistry Course at MUD Manila in Pure Beauty Serendra. I think I did okay, and with more practice, I have a bright future ahead. LOL*
The course was for Php 3900, one-day course, to enable newbie make-up enthusiasts like yours truly...
The first part was about our brows, and it's not an easy thing to learn. In fact, it took us a lot of time to cover this part, at the end, although mine are still pretty okay from my last visit at Benefit Cosmetics Brow Bar, I still needed help from her to fill each one in. Oh, oh! And the second part, just before we took a break for lunch was applying a long lasting cream-based foundation. She checked what we had, I tell you, I only got a shade right of the three brands that I brought with me. For the day, we're told to wear MUD Cream Foundation, super nice!
And it's lunch break, oh, by the way, I got reunited with a friend from work that I haven't seen in years, hence, the experience was twice the fun. ;-D Our lunch was at Conti's.
After, it's my most awaited part, eye makeup. And the model for this day make-up had to be me. Sweet! It was extra-nice, but at the same challenging because my benchmark was hers.
And now for the complete do...contours (my favorite and my must-master!), more highlights, blush, and lips. ;-D
The pomegranate shadow added color to my all-black O.O.T.D. It sets a great precedent for more colorful eye makeup endeavors in the FOTD's to come, now that I'm braver to reach for colorful shadow shades instead of just going for the usual basic browns/neutrals. Naturally, I just have to practice, practice, practice! ;-D That's all for Part 1. Please read on for Part 2... the night/smokey eyes make-up. ;-D
