Basic make-up workshop at True Scents and Minerals

Last Sunday(Jan. 16), me and two other blogger friends had the opportunity to attend the basic make-up workshop at True Scents and Minerals.

We were happy to be referred by Ria to the workshop. Alma, Darlene and I were taught some basic stuff by Ate Bunny Sy, owner of True Scents and Minerals, who was so generous to open her doors to us for a workshop even on a Sunday!

The techniques for basic makeup application that were taught in the workshop are very useful for everyday wear. We all got to learn a few essential things we never really knew about makeup selection and usage. I personally have been using cosmetics for some time now but I didn't know that it is very important to first determine what your undertone is before purchasing any products for your face. Maybe I've been lucky all these years for being able to pick the right makeup, or at least the ones that look okay on me. At least now I'll know how to choose makeup that truly is compatible with my skin.

So aside from learning about your undertone, there are also other points to remember such as:
  • Make sure to have a clean and moisturized face before applying makeup
  • Conceal flaws such as pimple marks and blemishes using the right concealer
  • Use a good foundation as a base (stay with the shade that's right for your undertone)
  • When applying different shades of eyeshadow, make sure to blend it with a blending eye brush to avoid seeing awkwardly lined colors on your lids
We were also made aware of the difference between Mineral makeup and the traditional talc-based products that are most commonly used. I have been using mineral makeup for a few months now and I've seen how well it works on my skin. In the next few posts I'll be sharing some points on this emerging line of cosmetics and how it would benefit users in the long-term. There's a lot to tell!

For now, I just wanna give a shoutout to Ate Bunny for being so generous to girls in Davao like us, and for introducing us to more beautiful possibilities of looking AND feeling good with the basic make-up workshop she gave us. Thank you, Ate for a fabulous Sunday! :D
