Late Post : BYS Make Up 101 Workshop

Eeeeeek! Late post nanaman! Sorry, I blame it on my "here today, gone tomorrow" hard drive which I really really need to replace very soon, if it doesn't get its act together.

If you've been reading my blog entries for quite sometime now, what's my favorite kind of cosmetic? What? What? It's lipstick! What's my least favorite? Eyeshadow! It's 'cause I'm not talented in this department, except for the eyebrows because I had to learn to do them when I was young. Anyway, I do appreciate make-up, I'm just not a junkie. 

I recently got invited by the SoMoms (what an honor!) to BYS Philippines' Make Up 101 event which I gladly went to without hesitation. I am so glad I accepted!

I failed to take a photo of my own invite so I stole these from Jackie hee hee! 

The kabuki brush is one of the best I've tried (not that I've tried a hoard of them) because it's really soft and fluffy yet picks up pigments quite well. This brush has earned a place in my make-up kit that goes with me everywhere. 

Look at how late this post is hehe!

So anyway, here are my own photos, taken on that really fun and noisy day

You can tell it was a hands-on thing? We each had our own "dresser" and train case for the entire session. So well-prepared. 

What was inside the train case. Lots of interesting things to try out. 

I'm never without powder and blush, just the basic stuff for me. I was excited to give these a try.

As expected, the Medium is my shade in the Matte Foundation. I've since given this bottle to Anissa because she needs it more during her dance performances and we happen to have the same skin tone, more or less. But I was able to use it once or twice and I was happy with the finish. 

Another BYS product I really ended up loving after the session was this --- their slanted brow pencil. I zeroed in on the Brown shade for myself when I bought my own at the BYS make-up counter in SM. 

What color is not here? This palette can very well be the only one in my stash, since I don't wear shadow everyday. I've seen this at their make up counter and it costs less than P1,000. Value for money!

A shot of the front row. Just look at how involved everyone was. It was really so much fun. 

Beauty blogger, Lee Shen Gee of Shen's Addictions was there to share her expertise

Here I am with Shen, Michelle of MyMomFriday and Jackie of GoJackieGo!

Aside from added knowledge, a desire to run to SM Dept Store to grab more BYS cosmetics (haha!) and fun memories, I also went home with this loot

Lotsa yummy stuff in there! 

Thank you BYS Philippines, for an enjoyable and insightful morning!
