I'll be the first to admit that I have no make-up application skills whatsoever. Sure, order me to develop a sustenable Organizational Development program. Easy peacey. Ask me to sing a lovely tune? In a snap!
But doing my own make-up? This was not a part of my God-given skills. I tremble at the thought! BB creams confuse me. Lipstick color leaves me staring into open space. The only thing I can get away with with my way-below-par make-up skills is at the office, where you're usually required to and simple is indeed simple (or else a memo would come your way. Hehehe!) ☺
But like everything else, I knew this had to change. I had to learn some time right?
And so when Marj Sia of The Traveling Heels blog and owner of Catwalk Cosmetics offered a half-day basic make-up workshop, I literally jumped at the chance; took it as a sign from God; and happily registered and paid for a slot.

Like a happy (and very enthusiastic) camper, I came prepared with what I did know (which isn't really much to begin with. The proverbial clean and blank slate.) and for 4 very educational hours, was thought how to apply make-up without totally looking like a heavy made-up drag queen. ☺

Don't I look grand? =D
I love how the workshop is open to only a limited number of people per batch. Since this is a very hands-on seminar, it was nice to know that Marj was there to readily able to answer all our questions and to lend a helping hand (or 2).

I wouldn't exactly call myself a pro at this yet. Practice does make perfect but at least now I am armed. ☺
We were also given a brief introduction to contact lenses by FreshLook.

Side note: Did you know there are people who use their spit in cleaning their contact lenses? Yuck city!
Participants were also treated with goody bags filled with Etude House, Freshlook, Cupcakes by Sonya, Lay Bare, Dove, City Delivery and Fashion Galore products.
|Wow! Free stuff! Thank you, sponsors. ☺|
Thanks Marj for a very informative and lovely afternoon! =)
