Brigitte's back to school...

...just for a day for a basic airbrush workshop!

with our teacher, Ms. Faye Young

i got my airbrush equipment last month and though i have practiced several times on myself and other people, i still didn't think i have enough confidence to offer airbrush service to clients. i still remember way back when i had to enroll in a make up class just to have that needed confidence that i can do make up on other people. i've always have this feeling that i need to be to formally trained on everything before i can finally tell myself that i can do it. ugh okay, i just don't trust myself on certain things.. ^_^

so when i got my airbrush stuff, i just knew i wouldn't have the guts to use it on people (and get paid) unless i get to attend a workshop. X probably knew that so told me to avail of this workshop being offered by Kryolan, where he also got me my airbrush stuff.


(now i realized that i wasn't able to get my certificate from LCI...sniff)

i was able to learn the basics...and do airbrush makeup all the way from foundation up to the eye makeup! yeah, even the eyebrows were airbrushed! i totally missed using my brushes during the workshop.

of course we started with worksheets.
and then we also got to work on a live model:

she'd been my model since i started with make up school and still my personal favorite among all my models!

thanks Jamie for filing a half-day leave from work just so i'll have a model for the workshop. i know i can always count on you :)

with Faye, Cherry (owner of Kryolan who also modeled for our teacher that day) and of course, Jamie

Kryolan's having a sale for the entire month of February so i grabbed this chance to get myself a concealer/foundation palette:

originally priced at almost Php 4k, but only paid Php 1900 because it's on sale!
great deal, i must say.

pigmented, great staying power and with the color palette, i can say it's totally useful!

of course, i would need to practice more. i am just beginning to get the hang of it. but you know what? i still prefer using my brushes when it comes to doing the eye makeup. i don't think i'd be able to get the same blending effect that i get from using my brushes...or maybe i'm wrong.

now i am thinking of getting another makeup course/module to sort of update myself.

wooow! the makeup is flawless :) btw, i also bought the concealer palette but the one in 6 shades only, which was 200 pesos cheaper than yours. i was scared to buy the 12 shades coz i only wanted it for personal use. haha

how much is their airbrush workshop?

Crissy said...

Oh my gosh.. I also went to LCI! I took the fashion diploma course though :)

But hey if you're serious about commissioning me for art (like Shen's) I'd be happy to work with you :)

What is your email? :)
