Last October 12, I attended my very first makeup workshop. This was made possible by Marge Tan of kikay trekkie. I joined her giveaway and luckily won the half off the workshop fee for Kanebo Philippines Radiant Beauty Workshop with Makeup Artist Ms. Suzzane Tan, the owner of Suesh Brushes. The workshop fee was 1,000 php and inclusive of makeup tools, skin pampering, consultation and snacks. I only paid 500 php, thanks so much Marge! It was held at East Cafe, Rustan's Makati. I chose the morning sesh 10:00 am -12:00 noon, it's very early and I'm the first attendee to arrive the venue. Ms. Yanie of Kanefil together with the beauty staffs (if that's how they're called) was preparing the makeup and tools so I decided to look around and take some photos.
While waiting for my "classmates", I decided to have my skin analyzed first with this gadget. Thanks to this skin analyzer, now I know that I have a combination skin (oily and dry). To sum up the results: Pore size- normal, Skin elasticity-normal, Tone- uneven, Target problems- freckles and post hyper pigmentation. After the skin analysis, we were taught how to apply skin care products the Kanebo way. Please refer to the photo above, as you can see there were 5 bottles which includes: makeup remover, toner, moisturizer, serum and eye cream. If my I'm not mistaken, this skin care application process takes more time than the basic routine of wash, tone and moisturize.
If you notice one thing that I'm not good to or am not applying or reviewing is in the eyeshadow department. I'm really not a fan of applying eye makeup and if I'm going to do it on a regular basis I'm sure that I'll not get the hang of it. But when I saw these babies, my eyes were glued on every palette. I'm mesmerized with those beautiful shades! Methinks of practicing the art of applying eye makeup, don't you agree?

Makeup and tools waiting to be abused XD
Ms. Suzzane explained the importance of skin care and what it does to makeup. She said that t's very important to use proper skin care products prior to makeup application so that makeup products will adhere to our skin. She taught us how to apply everyday makeup or the no makeup look. For makeup gurus and experts, the process was the same :)

To tell you honestly, I just did half of my makeup. I put the primer, liquid foundation, eyebrow powder and concealer on my own. The rest of my makeup like the blush, eyeliner, lip liner, lipstick and the eye shadow was applied with the help of their resident makeup artist and some beauty assistants.

Tada! My everyday- no make up look. Wasn't able to take note of the makeups I've used :( bummer me! I was assisted by their makeup artist because I'm very nervous and can't do the eye makeup properly. I was also suffering from eye allergy that day, as you can see my left eye looked different from the right. Days before the event, I experienced extreme headache then my eye became like this. It's also painful but I just have to deal with it in order not to miss this workshop.

The workshop lasted more than 3 hours and before we went home, our food was served courtesy of East Cafe.
|Soo love everything here, dumplings, chicken sandwich, fried noodles|

The last part of this workshop was the raffle of Kanebo products. I was surprised when my name was called.
|Yay! I won this Lunasol Palette from the raffle. It's the modelling glossy eyes from Winter 2012 collection.|
