Here’s a few things that I learned during the session. Make-up experts, I am a work in progress here, slowly learning this world of unknown called make-up! Haha!
1. Primer is the smoothest thing on earth!
Of course, I’m kidding! But that was the first time I’ve ever touched a primer and it’s the awesomest thing in make up for me! Pardon the first timer! We all have our firsts, right? And this was my first. *grinning!* Wow, how are they able to invent something like this? I don’t even know what brand of primer that was but I need a primer! Hahaha! Makeup primer is a base for foundation or face makeup that allows it to go on smoother and last longer. Formulas are available in cream, gel and powder.

How amazing are these things, right? I didn’t know why use soooo many brush when using make up! Now I know (at least a bit) why that is. For instance, when doing the eyes shadow, there’s a thing called eyeshadow brush to use for the lightest shade or base color all over the eyelid. Then there's tapered blending brush that we used for the darker shade in the crease area. And lastly, the pencil e30 for depth, darkest on outer v. And they really have different uses, cool! And before this session, I was just using my fingers to put a little color on my eyes!

Before this session, I used to watch a few make up tutorial in YouTube so highlighting and contouring isn’t something new for me but I just want to say how chic is this method, right? Like you can lift a few areas on your face and you can also put the others in the background. This make-up thing is really an art!
