...i'm doomed! you know how i dread the no-makeup-look.
but anyhoo, i enjoyed the class. really! i learned a lot starting from shaping the brows, shading and grooming it...tightlining, colors to use, applying and blending and mixing foundations and concealers...etc. I was beside Sophie and Leslie and we were panicking (but enjoying) the entire class. i am really thankful to have these two girls with me in this class.
Also, i want to say thank you (again) to my model for this look...no other than Merie Cris (i have already posted her when she let me do her makeup for a wedding she's going to attend). thanks baby! muaaahz
so here's my attempt on the PRIME LOOK...
and then her after pictures:

it was a really tiring day for us. we were standing for like 3hrs while doing the makeup and at the same time taking instructions from our gorgeous teacher. i had to re-do my model's brows because i've been shading it too dark...when it should be light to dark in the first place. ack. i was also frustrated with my Shu Uemura curler since the curls were much better when i used my Fanny Serrano curler on her lashes previously. grrr...practice! practice! practice!
after the hands-on, we had lunch and went straight to a makeup workshop at BECCA (GB5, ADORA). I was trying to keep myself from buying anything but who can resist the 20% discount for LCI students? boo-hoo..and like Sophie and Leslie, i got myself this really nice blush brush made of blue squirrel hair. We also got their new Mineral Primer with SPF as freebie...mind you, it's a full size! (i better stop justifying my purchase hehe)
my BECCA loot:
my most expensive brush up to date...(but with the 20% off, it's second to my MAC 187) and my free becca primer
my free BECCA primer.
i wanted to get their mattifying primer but i'll try this one first...hopefully it would work so i won't need to shell out some moolah again. hehehhee
we also passed by MAC to check out brushes for Sophie and since i've been lemming their eyecream for months now and me reading a lot of good reviews about it, i finally decided to get one:
MAC Fast Response Eye Cream
I really hope this works for me. Funny that i'd be using something with caffeine for my eyes when i rarely drink coffee...
and i also got a tinted moisturizer from Mary Kay at 20% off courtesy of my another classmate, Glens...
i know...i have too much tinted moisturizers already. but i just can't say no to good deals...grrrr
finally, here's me with Merie Cris and Leslie after a day of attending class, makeup workshop and some shopping:
Merie Cris, me (looking haggard and harassed after days of only having 2hrs of sleep and Leslie)
Next sat will be about Contouring and Highlighting and...hmm, what else Sophie and Les?
And oh, Merie Cris didn't just serve as my model...she also took down some notes for me during lecture....love yah baby! til next time!
here's more pictures from our class. thanks Sophie!
