The Basic Personal Make Up Workshop By Ryan Wong And Noeh Jani

By ketchupthelatest - November 20, 2012

Tools of the trade

It's such an irony that I've been using and wearing make up for years already and yet I haven't been to any formal classes on how to put them on. Good thing, Davao Bloggers were treated to an exclusive six-hour Basic Personal Make up Workshop By Ryan Wong And Noeh Jani at the Yellow Hauz   the other  Saturday, November 10.

I was so looking forward to that day since I've a collection of make up pieces ( most are gifts from friends and relatives) in my little vanity bag and I needed an expert's advise on the proper way of applying them.

It was totally exciting to be able to learn the do's and dont's of make up application, and knowing the latest trends from the experts themselves. They generously shared us helpful tips about  make-up and skincare, and interestingly debugged beauty myths we thought were true. What made it more hands-on was that, Ryan and Noeh brought make-up samples for us to try on.

They specifically brought a wide array of Nyx Cosmetic samplers such as foundation, concealers, lipsticks, eye shadow pallets/sticks and more. Co-bloggers also shared their own tips and make-up/skincare brands that worked for them. 

One of the important learnings I had was to choose the perfect foundation and concealer that suits my skin tone as it is the basic step of make up application. As they say, it will make or break your over-all look. Also, achieving a stunning and gorgeous look doesn't mean you need to buy all-expensive make up, brushes, etc. (Although admittedly, a lotof  trusted make up brands don't really come cheap these days).

You need to be wise in choosing quality make-up ( brands that suit your skin and not giving you break-outs) , and those that match your facial features and tone.  If you are a smart buyer, you can have great make-up finds at very reasonable prices. Another tip that stuck in my mind was, INVEST in GOOD QUALITY MAKE-UP BRUSHES. No brainer, right? 

In a nutshell, it was truly a day for the girls who want to be pretty and feel pretty.  I would definitely want a part two of this.

  11. There is always room for improvement, so they say .And you are taking the right track.

  12. I've heard a lot of good reviews about NYX. I am so tempted to buy one but I've just shopped for some Maybelline goodies :-)

    I can see familiar faces in the photo. It's great that you bloggers were able to avail of this rare chance. Stay pretty! ;-)

  13. If I was still there, I would've gladly joined the session because I am one of the many who is in the dilemma of finding the perfect foundation that fits my skin tone.
