June 9--- I attended my first ever makeup workshop! In spite of my very busy schedule, I decided to attend the workshop for the following reasons:

1. I want to learn more about makeup. Yes, I’ve learned a lot from watching youtube. Honestly, most of the knowledge I have right now, I just learned from watching makeup gurus. However, just like what Celline had said in her blog, nothing can beat a face-to-face lecture.
2. I want to be a part of Glaminar’s Makeup Work first batch!
3. I like meeting new people, especially makeup lovers!
4. I want to meet my fellow bloggers again. (Celline and Ana)

And finally,
5. Ana Patricia will be our instructor!!! ---- I’m a huge fan of this girl! She is definitely an amazing makeup artist and yet, still, a very nice and humble girl.

 I arrived in the studio at 1pm looking very ordinary (almost without makeup except for foundation and well-groomed eyebrows) and still with headache since I just took an evaluation examination on the same day. 

Upon arriving at the venue, the first thing that caught my attention was the MAKEUP BUFFET (coined by Socel).
The eyeshadow palettes from Estee Lauder, MUA, NYX, Sephora, Tarte, Elf and more!

The amazing Nyx Lipsticks

Face products! Oh boy!!!

More makeup!!!

The famous Jazzy Collection Creme foundation and Loreal Base Magique

Oh yes!! It's an URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTE!! A real one! finally!

 And yes, almost everything in the table were brand new! Oh boy, I love being included in the first batch. It’s like a heaven for girls like me! I was able to try almost all the products in this table! 

Believe it or not, I can just stand there trying all the makeup for an hour or more.

I was also extremely pleased with the arrangement of our workplace! <3

Okay, that's my friend's tummy! Not mine. hahaha! The mirror is super cute, i want to take it home! hahaha
All were pleased with these makeup brushes from Beauty Cosmetics! Oh, so soft!

Our Instructor - Makeup Artist Ms. Ana Patricia Mendoza

Ana Patricia is a self-taught freelance makeup artist. She started getting professional work at age 17.

In January 2011, she did the makeup for ABS-CBN 'Imortal' where she did the vampire makeup look for the male models, groomed actor Jake Roxas and retouched actress Francine Prieto. Ana Patricia is also a guest makeup artist at MAC Rockwell Branch. Over time, she has done numerous makeup for weddings,debuts,fashion shows,pageants,print ads,and other events.

On November 2011, she started her own beauty blog. A month after, she received her first ever HD Camera from her sister as a christmas gift. Ana uploaded her first makeup tutorial on Youtube on the 1st day of January 2012. With her first video gaining a thousand views in a short time, Dollface Cosmetics made her an amabasadress for the brand. More sponsorships for her blog also followed. To date, she is the youngest professional makeup artist in town.

Not only is she a makeup artist, Ana likes to create art by painting and sketching. She is a graduating student at Cosmopoint International Institute of Technology taking up Computer Graphics Design. She enjoys being influenced from surrounding artworks when she creates an original look. Although she's into high-fashion looks, she makes sure beauty doesn't get left behind.

There were 8 attendees for the first batch of the workshop which is pretty beneficial for us so Ana could closely supervise and guide us throughout the workshop.

Ana began her presentation with Skincare. She tackled the basic things we need to learn about skin including our skin type. 
 We were also able to try Mary Kay skin care products sponsored by Red Jhelli Shop.

Other topics discussed were as follows:
Basic Foundation Routine
I've Learned...
-  -Full coverage is much better in pictures than in person. Ana recommends sheer to medium coverage for everyday

Lipstick & Blush Application
I've Learned...
-  -Kinds of lipstick finishes (plus some techniques in applying lipsticks) and the right way of applying blush on cheeks

Highlighting & Contouring
I've Learned...
To contour my face using fan brush!!! I never thought fan brush would be very useful as this!

Tools & Brushes
I've Learned...
The kinds of brushes and their uses. In addition, Ana give us techniques in making some of our brushes multi-functional (such as fan brush)

Brows 101
Ana demonstrated us the right way of grooming our eyebrows!! She did a great job on my co-student! 

Hands-on Makeup Application: 
‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look, Quick & Easy Everyday Makeup and Smokey Eye for Nightime (transforming everyday makeup to Nighttime look)


 After the Hands-on makeup (that lasted for 7 hours!!!!  Oh yes, worth every peny!!) we had our photoshoot! The pictures were not yet posted on the fan page but I promise to include it in this post once Ate Myla is done uploading them.

Overall, I really enjoyed my first ever makeup workshop! Oh boy, I was glad to be part of this wonderful seminar. The 7 hours (supposedly 5-hours makeup workshop---grabeng extension namin! haha!) was worth every penny. 

Thank you again Ate Myla for being understanding and extending the time and Ana for your patience in teaching us! Thank you, Glaminar!

Unlimited Swatching of Cosmetics
Merienda Time (Conti's)
